GS Sardesai, in his Vol.1 of the New History of Marathas mentions the role of the Mahanubhav cult and its founder Chakradhar in destabilizing the Orthodoxy in the Yadava Kingdom, which eventually resulted in the deaths of both Chakradhar and Hemadri.
The death of Hemadri resulted in the disorder in the empire due to breakdown of civil services which made it easier for Alauddin Khilji to capture Devagiri. He was also helped by the Mahanubhav agents
This cautionary tale of subversionists has been recounted by Arya @blog_supplement in his blogpost :…
@blog_supplement One of the feature of Mahanubhav cult was their vehement opposition towards Sanskrit. They rigidly enforced the use of Marathi, even for religious purposes. This was an "in-group" marker that differentiated them from the existing Orthodox sects of the time.
Like the lemurs of today, the sect didn't look upon Vedas as sacred, they were purogami as they didn't believe in caste barriers, and they were staunchly monotheist, that they didn't even tolerate Avataras.
