Read the passage and answer the question (Value Based Question):-     4  
10 The next generation questioned this total acceptance of Western ideas and urged that 
national pride be built on indigenous values. The philosopher Miyake Setsurei (1860-1945) 
argued that each nation must develop its special talents in the interest of world civilisation: 
‘To devote oneself to one’s country is to devote oneself to the world.’ By contrast, many 
intellectuals were attracted to Western liberalism and wanted a Japan based not on the 
military but on democracy. Ueki Emori (1857-1892), a leader of the Popular Rights 
Movement, was demanding constitutional government, admired the French Revolution’s 
doctrine of the natural rights of man and of popular sovereignty, and spoke for a liberal 
education that would develop each individual: ‘Freedom is more precious than order.’ Others 
even advocated voting rights for women. This pressure led the government to announce a 
constitution. 
1) The values of the popular Rights Movement still exist globally today. Explain briefly.

Yasa 
17. In 1221,afterthe conquest of Bukhara, Genghis Khan had assembled the rich Muslim 
residents at the festival ground and had admonished them. He called them sinners and warned 
them to compensate for their sins by parting with their hidden wealth. The episode was 
dramatic enough to be painted and for a long time afterwards people still remembered the 
incident. In the late 16th century, ‘Abdullah Khan, a distant descendant of Jochi, Genghis 
Khan’s eldest son, went to the same festival ground in Bukhara. Unlike, Genghis Khan, however, 
Abdullah Khan, went to perform his holiday prayers there. His chronicler, Hafiz-i-Tanish, 
reported this performance of Muslim piety by his master and included the surprising 
comments: “this was according to the yasa of Genghis Khan.”
