Ashtapradhan :

1. Moropant Pingale - Brahmin.
2. Ramchandrapant Bawdekar - Brahmin
3. Annaji Datto - Brahmin
4. Sonopant Vishwanath - Brahmin
5. Panditrao ( so much anti Brahminism) - Raghunath Panditrao.

Muslims in Ashtapradhan mandal - Zero.
Adopted Brahmanical Sanskrit language and threw out Persian. Commissioned Rajvyawhar kosh.
And since Aurangzeb only imprisoned him it doesnt count.

Also getting besieged by Siddi Johar or having to cede 23 forts to Diler Khan.
Between Panhala Purandar and Sinhagad - Chhatrapati Shivaji LOST LIVES of three of his best.

Against Mughals and Adil Shah.
Chhatrapati Shivaji's envoy when he met Afzal Khan - गोपीनाथपंत बोकील ( Brahmin)
When he met Maharaja Chhatrasal Bundela
So anti Brahmin he was not.

If you mean anti Hindu rituals..well then here goes
Hindu (Brahmanical) rituals
A Marathi Brahmin, originally of Paithan - presided over the coronation ceremony.

No Qazi was present.
I am trying to figure out "hero of Bahujan, not Hindu"

Since " Converted Minority" is also Bahujan

Here is Chhatrapati Shivaji beheading 4 Padres.

Turki Fauzet thevliyas, Jai milto kaisa ?

(How do you expect to win when you have so many Turks in your army)

Chhatrapati Shivaji to his brother Vyankoji during Dakshin Digvijay.
Since Bhakti movement has been mentioned...

It was a bulwark against Islamism
Here is Namdev praying for Kalki avtaar to get rid of Mlecchas (Sultanates in this case)

Same Namdev of Guru Granth Sahib. Also a Bhakti saint held in as much regard as Sant Tukaram.

"Dharmachi ubharil gudi" means what ?

There were only about 7-8 Peshwas

From where did the remaining 27990 come ? 🤣🤣🤣
So basically you are celebrating a British victory over an Indian power.
Muslims supported the Brahmin Peshwa

India's history syllabus is Mughal centric , Delhi centric and doesn't provide sufficient space to Indian heroes is something we have been hammering at on SM for past 15 years now.
Everyone providing their squirrel's share has made some dent in this medieval history narrative.

Another narrative which we have missed out - is the history of India's Industrial progress.
1. Britain GAVE US industrial progress and industries.

2. Indian Industrialists were basically people in cahoots with the goras.

👆Our textbooks describing India's industrial progress.

Mixes up Narayanrao Peshwa who was assassinated with Madhavrao Peshwa who died of Tuberculosis.

Declares the Marathas defeated in Bengal when infact they annexed Odisha and took 12 lakh chauth.

Top historian and best Publishing House at work😁

Somewhere deep inside the book he mentions Marathas, but to Scroll -
Never mind Marathas and others who shook off the Mughals.

"Our realm has touched the Yamuna" - Peshwa Bajirao

"Like Satara, Delhi is within our rule" - Nana Phadnavis.

How cute. Perhaps he would like to explain why the Mughals fought only at Buxar to save their Empire ?
Balaji Vishwanath signed exactly this with the then Mughal Rafi ul Darjat in 1719.

Revenue collection over former Mughal territories.

But that won't be mentioned. Doesnt fit narrative.
Across the Mughal empire 🤭🤭🤭

This was just rights over Bengal.

Konark was destroyed by Islamic invader Kalapahad. It had an idol that floated due to opposing magnets on either side of it.

Repeat after me - destroyed by Islamic invader in 1568.
Read - Desecration by Suleiman Karani, the Muslim invader. (Kalapahad)

This board is at Konark temple itself. I thought an Oriya fellow would know.
* Kalapahad was General of Suleiman Karani.

Only front portion now remains. You can imagine the scale of destruction under Islamic invaders.
