@_ugra_ #Narasimhadeva of Ganga dynasty, Kalinga/ Orissa, 1238–1264, was the 1st Hindu raja to use subterfuge to trap Tugan Khan in a counter attack.
Khan asked him to surrender with weapons, his entire population accept islam & convert #JaggannathMandir into a Mosque.
@_ugra_ #Narasimhadeva accepted
Tugan happily marched into completely evacuated city of its pilgrims,aged & children,soldiers posted in every nook-corner
Inside city,jihadis had to dismount their horses to reach #JaggannathMandir square for surrender ceremony,through unfamiliar lanes
@_ugra_ At a prefixed signal, temple bells started ringing #Narasimhadeva ‘s army pounced on invaders
After a day long battle entire Muslim army was completely annihilated
Orissa remained #Hindu bastion for centuries which accounts for low percentage of Muslims in Orrisa even today!
