Know where #Gandhi ‘s love for Islam & preaching #Ahimsa to Hindus came from!
"My family was Pranami,though we are Hindu by birth, in our temple priest used to read from Quran & Geeta”. Gandhi
Prannath Thakur, desciple of Devchandra Maharaj established #Pranami tradition.
17th century, Maharaja Chhatrasal with Shivaji’s blessings fought the Mughals for freedom of Bundelkhand. Before the battle Prannath blessed him to be victorious & gave him his sword & angocha.
#Chhatrasal fought 80 battles with #Aurangzeb & won almost all!
Prannath would invite the converted Muslims & Hindus to dine together & cite Quran & Srimad Bhagwat in his teachings( maye be to connect with the new converts & bring them back)?
After Mahamati Prannath, #Chhatrasal promoted Krishna Pranami tradition of Mahamati Prannath.

1."On behalf of this sinner sunk in iniquity, cover the tomb of Hasan, because those who are drowned in the ocean of sin have no other protection except seeking refugee..forgiveness. This great auspicious act is to be performed by my noble son Prince Alijah(Md. Azam)" @aary_aan
2."Rs 4 and 2 annas, out of the price of caps sewn by me are with Aia Beg, the Mahaldar. Spend this on the shroud of this helpless creature. 300& 5Rs, from the wages of copying Quran,are in my peruse of personal expense.Distribute them to the fakirs on my death, not on my shroud"

I do not glorify the Mughals. I present an even-handed and, above all, a historical analysis of the Mughals. Accusations of 'glorifying' are bad faith misrepresentations of my work by some modern readers, or, more likely, trolls who have not actually read my work. t.co/snsXyQXSX6
As always, yeah, I can back-up those words with hard evidence. Short THREAD.
In my 2017 biography of Aurangzeb Alamgir, I peg the king as a 'Destroyer of Temples' at times. Seriously, that's a title of a chapter in my book on the king. I describe in unvarnished language how he brought down certain temples.

1/n 400yrs ago,was born,the emperor, proud of whom are many though the fact pronounces him as father of Hindu-Muslim hate in the great nation, where once Hindu King Dahir gave away life saving prophet’s blood. I narrate the tale of the hate thru this thread, revisiting #Aurangzeb
2/n Of all the Mughal Emperors who preceded & succeeded him,he was most adherent Islamist,Sharia Practioner as well as most instrumental of causing conversations. For that was a cause to inch closer to be s better Muslim.
3/n The Holy Quran has been thru various corruptions at hands of various Muhammad Haters who subscribed to Islam post Prophet’s death. The corruption has left the Holy book with ambiguity & more ambiguity. If (2.256) of book forbids forced conversion, (9:5) reflects diff view.

#Aurangzeb lived 91 years. In death wrote will dividing the empire among three sons. Bahadurshah who was given 12 provinces killed other two but died in another 12 years #History
Bahadurshah’s son Jahandaar Shah killed his brothers and became #Mughal emperor in 1712, and his mistress, Lal Kunwar ruled by proxy. She was paid 2 Cr per Annum. The first NAC Of Delhi 😂🤦‍♂️
