( Learn from History )

As per Haft Iqllim,
There was a time when even Muslims were also allowed to enter Jagannath Temple.
As per writings of Ghulam Husain Salim,
There was a time when Hindus and Muslims use to live peacefully with each other in Puri.

The Mahanta Seva of the temple was usually entrusted to a person belonging to Muslim caste.

Hindus also visited Muslim shrines.
This shows how liberal Hindus were.

But what Muslims did ?
Within 200 years, they attacked the temple more than 10 times. Broke the temple. Burned the cars.

A #Thread on Chapati Movement, a movement which changed the fate of Company's rule in India. A movement which changed the Indian politics and paved the way for the India's freedom.

The revolt of 1857, or the Sepoy mutiny, was India's first war of independence from the British rule. Indian soldiers weren't as well equipped as the British army and yet they fought with all their might and laid down their lives fighting the oppressive British policies.
But how did it all begin? How did our soldiers strategize at a time when modes of communication weren't as fast as they are today?

Some historians believe that a few months before the uprising of 1857, a distribution of chapatis began which nobody was able to explain.
