@Himansh00830841 @Khilji_Iqra @AliyaNazki Islamic invaders & tyrants always saw Brahmins as The biggest stepping stone in conversion of Hindus to islam.
As brhamins usually didn't give up on faith.
So that is why they see Brahmins their prime enemy also it is easy to use unchecked hate speech against Brahmins in India.
@Himansh00830841 @Khilji_Iqra @AliyaNazki If anyone knows about "Aurangzeb's dream" knows about the blatant Hindu hating nature of Mughals.

Aurangzeb was told that if he can convert Brahmins of Kashmir then most of the Hindus of India will convert by following them as Brahmins are the biggest stepping stone in his aim.
@Himansh00830841 @Khilji_Iqra @AliyaNazki Aurangzeb launched his Mission to convert kashmiri Brahmins 100s of brahmins were killed to spread fear.

Kashmiri Brahmins went to #sikh Guru for help & negotiate with Aurangzeb (if Im not wrong then 9th Guru @JungNihang can confirm it)

In return #Aurangzeb beheaded Sikh Guru.

The plan to invade the Riyasat of #JammuAndKashmir wasn't born in #Lahore but in the residence of #Jinnah at #Aurangzeb road #NewDelhi . Here in the spring of 1947 Col. Akbar Khan & some #Muslim officers of the #British #Indian #Army hatched this plot .
#KashmirAccessionDay26Oct
It was only in October 1947 that Maj. Onkar Singh Kalkat of the Bannu Brigade #PakistanArmy who had not yet been repatriated to #India found files marked Operation Gulmarg Secret while looking for some other documents in the office of Brigadier Murray at NWFP.
Even though he was nearly arrested & sent to #Lahore , Maj.Onkar somehow made it out to #NewDelhi & told the #IndianArmy top brass about the file he had sern which detailed an invasion of #JammuKashmir by tribesmen. He wasn't taken seriously by the Brass .

In the mid 1660s, a Rajput - acting on Mughal orders - besieged Shivaji at Purandar.

Marathas and different Rajput lineages often acted differently from one another, even fighting each other.

Ask yourself: Why can some people not accommodate this history in their worldview?
After Purandar, Shivaji allied with the Mughals. Then he reconsidered and escaped from Aurangzeb's court.

There were rumors that the same Rajput who had besieged Shivaji at Purandar, helped Shivaji escape. Many believed it.

It was a world of complicated, shifting alliances.
For anyone interested, I discuss and cite all of this in my #Aurangzeb book.

For a fuller story about Shivaji, however, you'll need to read either the North American or Pakistan edition since I cut some material from the Indian edition (on legal advice). audreytruschke.com/truschke-auran…

Akhbarat of Aurangzeb !

Just Two Years before his death, Aurangzeb 01 Jan 1705, he ordered destruction of Pandharpur, take Butchers to the temple & slaughter Cows.
Akhbarat says, it was DONE. (JN Sarkar).

This is a good example for talking about how people use and abuse sources and why it is valuable to demand academic standards. short #THREAD #Mughal #history #Aurangzeb
First red flag - No source is given for the picture with text. It is a slightly adapted version of what's on the Wikipedia page for Dara Shukoh. Wikipedia's pages are full of misinformation on Indian history. Case in point: Bicholim conflict.
Another problem. The source is Manucci. Honestly, for all The Hindu Right goes on against people like me because I'm of European descent, man, do they really rely on European sources too much for Indian history. Manucci especially...

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.

Here's an interesting thread on
THE LAST WILL AND TESTIMONY
of the last Great #Mughal- Alamgir
#Aurangzeb.
Below will be the instructions
Alamgir left in his will.

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 😂🤦‍♂️
