(1/14) 712 C.E #BinQasim invaded Sindh - 1030 C.E #MahmudGhazni died 'distorians' do 3 disservices - Lionize invaders, sideline heroes & hide brutalities. This film reverses that - - Read on for uncomfortable truths & unsung heroes @fgautier26 @singhsahana
(2/14) 712 C.E Mohammed Bin Qasim of #Ummayid Caliphate invades Sindh, kills #RajaDahir & sends his 2 daughters to Damascus as slaves. But did you know that the daughters tricked the Khalif & had Bin QAsim killed? @ShefVaidya @neha_aks - example of naari shaktitva
(3/14) So why did no Arab invade India for 300 years? Because India was blessed with kings like #Lalitaditya, #BappaRawal, Dantidurga & Nagabhatta 1 who thrashed jihadis so bad that they disappeared for next 300 years. @vivekagnihotri - theme for your next movie maybe?

குஜராத்தின் #சோமநாதபுரி ஜோதிர்லிங்க சிவாலயம் #Somnath சாதுராஷ்ட்ரம் எனும் சவுராஷ்ட்ரா பகுதியின் மாபெரும் கலை பொக்கிஷமாய் இருந்தது. அன்றைய சாதுராஷ்ரம் குஜராத்தின் கடல் வணிகமும் அவர்கள் கொட்டிய செல்வமும் பெரும் நதிகளின் வளமும் அந்த சோமநாதபுரியினை சொர்க்கபுரியாக
ஆக்கியிருந்தன, மாபெரும் செல்வத்தின் அடையாளமாய் இருந்தது. இன்றைய பத்மநாதஸ்வாமி ஆலயத்தை விட அதிக தங்கம் அங்கே இருந்தது. அதை விட பெரும் அதிசயம், சிவலிங்கம் அங்கே அமரவில்லை மாறாக அந்தரத்தில் நின்றது. சுற்றிலும் 4 காந்த கல்களை பதித்து விஷேஷமான இரும்பு கல்லால் ஆன சிவலிங்கம். அதன்
ஈர்ப்பு விசையினால் நடுவில் நிறுத்தபட்டது, அந்தரத்தில் லிங்கம் மிதந்தது. நவரத்தினமும் வைரமும் பதிக்கபட்டு மின்னிய அந்த லிங்கம் சோமன் எனும் நிலவு போலவே மின்னியது. அங்கு மாபெரும் காணிக்கையும் பக்தர் எண்ணிக்கையும் குவிந்தன. கோவிலின் குறைந்த பட்ச உலோகம் தங்கம் எனும் அளவு ஜொலித்ததது.

Hello #twitterstorians! Sorry about the break for the last two days. There were...uh...technical difficulties...
But we're back! In this thread, I, @StevenMVose, want to give a brief #history of the #Delhi Sultanate and share some facts and recent scholarly takes that may complicate the #narrative of the Sultanate, and of #Islam in So. Asia, that I alluded to in the previous thread. Qubbat al-Islam Mosque, Del...
I will also highlight some #Jain interactions with the Sultans, which suggest a complex set of interactions between #Indian religious communities and the emerging #Islamicate "state" in the late 13th and early 14th c's. CE

The Vedic Puranas have the mentioning of the jyotirlingas. There are twelve Primary Jyotirlingas in total. Somnath Mandir is the foremost and the oldest Jyotirlinga mentioned in the Skanda #Puran, Shreemad Bhagavad, Shiv Puran, and many more. The Somnath mandir, situated in the
Prabhas Kshetra near Veraval in Saurashtra, on the western coast of #Gujarat, #India, has its significance as the first Jyotirlinga. The temple located at the shore of the Arabian Sea has an ancient story associated with it. The moon god himself constructed the first temple.
The date of the establishment got lost in antiquity. The current structure of the temple got built in the year 1995.A 13th century Persian Geographer and traveler Zakariya al-Qazwini mentioned Somnath Temple in his book, “Wonders of Creation.”, the #Somnath Jyotirlinga initially

A thread on #MahatmaGandhi in context of #KangnaRanaut's statement on Gandhism.
1.Gandhi was against all isms.
2. Nobody can claim to believe in "Gandhism" & NOT be a liberal.
2. Has anyone seen a pix of #Gandhiji ever visiting a temple, derasar, church or mosque?
3.Gandhi was a liberal & a staunch secular. He never built a temple or inaugurated one.He was the first person who denied Govt funding to #Somnath reconstruction to Kanaiyalal Munshi.
4. #Gandhi ji's prayer meetings were always interfaith in nature, including the Ashram prayers.
5. #Gandhiji was not "nationalstic" in the contemporary usage of the term. He NEVER cited or used history to underscore his social or political battles. He believed only fake nationalists use history to score points without considering the political & social context of the era.

The first contribution of Brahmins to the #Hindu National Pride was this #Brahmin ‘s reply to the 1st known foreign invaders, the Greeks(they called him ‘Dandamis’) on being threatened to be beheaded on his refusal to meet Alexander.
“Alexander has’nt yet seen other bank of Vyas
If he successfully faces brave🇮🇳states beyond & yonder still
the powerful empire of Magadh,
yet remain alive,I shall consider.
He may behead me but can’t kill my soul”

Plutarch gives full text of this #Brahmin ‘s fearless reply
Alexander realized, #Brahmins exerted powerful influences upon the governments of🇮🇳Republics,
that tongues of these fearless Brahmins were sharper than Khatriya swords.

Before beheading one he asked,
why he instigated a certain-ruler against him & came the reply👇🏻
