    Missing part of Indian History!!! The day when 120000 Indian warriors defeated this Islamic invader
    [​IMG]

    A number of historic events of importance have been kept aside from text books and historic studies in India. We cannot estimate if such moves were intentional conspiracies or a phenomenon of chance, but the impact of filtering history is definitely not good. Wiping out certain parts where Indians themselves were on the victorious side of a war makes way for number of suspicions. Here we came across such an instance that has been kept marginalised from mainstream history, though it was an evidently an important event that India witnessed. Here is all you need to know about the ‘Bahraich’ War.

    ‘Bahraich’ War took place during the month of July, way back in 1033. This war ended in a freezing defeat for the Muslim invaders who invaded India through the hands of Rajput kings. The defeat faced by the invaders was so harsh that it took them more than 150 years to raise an eye on India again.

    It so happened in 1026, that Mahmud of Ghazni invaded the Gujrati region of India, and returned after he demolished the famous Somanatha temple. This act of his was witnessed by his 11 year old apprentice and nephew, Saiyyad Salar Masud. Demolition and robbery of the Somanatha temple incited ideas in the head of Saiyyad Salar Masud, who rightfully assumed that India would be a grand treasure – for one temple of Gujrat itself housed a great amount of materials that they looted.

    This, combined with greed to convert India into a Muslim nation compelled Saiyyad Salar Masud to invade India soon after Ghazni’s death in 1030. Though this ambitious ruler was merely a 19 year old teenager, he led a massive army of 10,000 armed men. His relentless invasion sure had a notable impact on Indian rulers, most of who failed to counter or stop him. Saiyyad Salar Masud not only progressed along by looting the lands he invaded, but also converting the native rulers to Islam.

    At the same time, Raja Sukhadev, or who is popularly known as Suhaldev; ruled a state named ‘Shravasthi’. 17 Rajput kings served under his emperorship, and this man was also a fierce warrior known to have led an army larger than that of Saiyyad Salar Masud. His army consisted of not just armed men, but war horses, elephants and wagons as well.

    Unaware of this, Saiyyad Salar Masud continued his victory parade and reached Sathrik (now in UP), where he set up camp and called the place his capital. He assumed that no king in India was strong enough to outdo his army, and it would be an easy task to convert Hindu rulers to Islam – for they lacked unity amongst one another. With same assumptions in mind, Saiyyad Salar Masud sent his messenger to Bahraich (a part of UP, now situated in Lucknow), to ask for the ruler to surrender. However, his messenger was thrown out of Bahraich by the ruling Rajput King of the place. The pre-conception that Hindu rulers lacked unity was falsified by the united Rajput rulers of Shravasthi, who served under Raja Suhaldev.

    When the messenger and Saiyyad Salar Masud attacked the ruler of Sathrik with an army of 10,000, he was ridiculously outnumbered by the united army of Shravasthi – which consisted of a whopping 1,20,000 soldiers! The valorous Rajputs mercilessly erased off every trait of existence of Saiyyad Salar Masud and what was considered to be his great army. The anger that aroused owing to Saiyyad Salar Masud’s misdeeds such as burning down Hindu temples and forceful conversions was brought out by the Rajputs on the war field in Bahraich. Saiyyad Salar Masud was brought down by Raja Suhaldev himself. Rajputs were hailed for the glorious victory for years to come; but sadly not in our history textbooks anymore.

    Strange indeed, that an event that clearly demonstrates the victory of truth of evil has been sidelined by our historians. We are made to study the history of leaders such as Hitler and Mussoloni, but how many of us know the name of Raja Suhaldev? It’s probably high time we shift our focus towards what’s actually important for us to know.

    Firstly, these were not religious wars. These were pure greed driven. The justification was retrospectively introduced as religion - for obvious reasons.

    Secondly, the Indian nation was divided into smaller principalities and they were at war with each other. While India as a nation was recognised, the actions as a nation were lacking. Result was that narrow self interests ruled the roost even in face of foreign invasions and Hindus lost Afghanistan region, then modern day Pakistan and the country for more 800 years to Muslims and then 200 years to British.

    Even today, once again a Hindu majority, is precisely on this route. Regionalism, factionalism and caste based politics are taking their toll.

    Also the less known war in history is when the Ahom Kingdoms were invaded by the Mughals during Shah Jahan's and Aurangzeb's time when both of them got their ass kicked back to their 72's.

    When we do unite, we do show up with one hell of an army. 3,20,000 men by the Magadha's when Alexander invaded, 1,20,000 men when this asshole invaded. Caste based politics is on the decline, regionalism and factionalism will go away once people have something to do. Give somebody a job and make him work Mon to Friday for 10 hours a day and he won't have the time to think of anything else...

    And the irony is the Mughal commander was Raja Man Singh. And a 'naval battle' on the Brahmaputra river.

    Ok, let me rephrase it, pre-eminence in the Indian sub-continent.
    Fair?

    Now, I am a strict follower of Vishnugupta's POV. His Arthashastra and his outlook on India as a single nation of Bharat and his attempts to unite the various principalities and states into a confedration are truly inspiring. His continuous emphasis on nations not being limited to commonality of religion, landmass or language, but commonality of an idea, of culture and thought, is resonant with what the 'Great European' thinkers espoused in concept of Nation States in 19th Century. And this gentleman superseded them by almost 1000 years!!!!

    That is why my earlier riposte!

    india was dominated by foreigners even before muslims be it Aryans ,Greeks, sakas , indo Greek ,kushan, huns etc .....only thing happened different was they got assimilated into indian religion & culture or their beliefs & custom got assimilated unlike islam.
    Islamic rule was nothing but a replacement of previous indigenized foreign rule of subcontinent.

    Indian history was always one sided & there is a reason for it which many skinny brahman warriors won't like because its all because of them & their thirst to hold on to be guardian of religion, cast & privileges associated with it

    Aryan Invasion theory proven false

    The Aryan invasion theory has been a basis and justification of Western interpretation upon the civilization and history of India. Although many Indologists within India have been influenced by such thought, the theory has not met majority acceptance within India and is even coming under attack in the West. David Frawley, one Sanskrit scholar recognized both inside as well as outside of India has assessed the current situation of the Aryan invasion theory thusly:

    “ One of the main ideas used to interpret – and generally devalue – the ancient history of India is the theory of the Aryan invasion. According to this account, India was invaded and conquered by nomadic light-skinned Indo-European tribes from Central Asia around 1500-100 BC, who overthrew an earlier and more advanced dark-skinned Dravidian civilization from which they took most of what later became Hindu culture … This idea- totally foreign to the history of India, whether North or South, has become an almost unquestioned truth in the interpretation of ancient history today. Today, after nearly all the reasons for its supposed validity have been refuted, even major Western scholars are at last beginning to call it into question.” ( David Frawley, “ The Myth of the Aryan Invasion” )

    One main reason that the theory has been called into question is that there is no primary evidence. No monuments to any heros of such invasions have been excavated, no related cemeteries unearthed, no battle fields identified in relation to the theory, no forts, in short- nothing in the way of physical evidence. There is a host of other incongruencies, but this is the general idea.

    One major platform that Western scholars have relied upon to substantiate the theory is etymology. They trace linguistic patterns, encompassing East and West, and then by implication pinpoint a central geographic area which then serves as a common point of origin of the Indo-European language and race. This point, being basically the Caucasians and mountainous regions of Persia, is of course, outside of India, such that the existence of the Aryan race in Northern India is attributed to an invasion, and such is the explanation they offer for the Caucasian presence in India.

    It has often been pointed out that few other principal theories have ever been accepted based on such indirect, flimsy evidence. When something ends up being so rigidly imposed with such little basis, a reasonable mind will look for other motives. Again we may rely on the broad understanding of David Frawley. ” It is important to examine the social and political implications of the Aryan invasion idea:

    First, it served to divide India into a northern Aryan and southern Dravidian culture which were made hostile to each other. This kept the Hindus divided and is still a source of social tension.

    Second, it gave the British an excuse in their conquest of India. They could claim to be doing only what the Aryan ancestors of the Hindus had previously done millennia ago.

    Third, it served to make Vedic culture later than and possibly derived from Middle Eastern cultures. With the proximity and relationship of the latter with the Bible and Christianity, this kept the Hindu religion as a sidelight to the development of religion and civilization to the West.

    Fourth, it allowed the sciences of India to be given a Greek basis, as any Vedic basis was largely disqualified by the primitive nature of the Vedic culture.

    This discredited not only the ‘Vedas’ but the genealogies of the ‘Puranas’ and their long list of the kings before the Buddha or Krishna were left without any historical basis. The Mahabharata, instead of a civil war in which all the main kings of India participated as it is described, became a local skirmish among petty princes that was later exaggerated by poets. In short, it discredited the most of the Hindu tradition and almost all its ancient literature. It turned its scriptures and sages into fantasies and exaggerations.

    This served a social, political and economical purpose of domination, proving the superiority of Western culture and religion. It made the Hindus feel that their culture was not the great thing that their sages and ancestors had said it was. It made Hindus feel ashamed of their culture – that its basis was neither historical nor scientific. It made them feel that the main line of civilization was developed first in the Middle East and then in Europe and that the culture of India was peripheral and secondary to the real development of world culture.

    Such a view is not good scholarship or archeology but merely cultural imperialism. The Western Vedic scholars did in the intellectual sphere what the British army did in the political realm – discredit, divide and conquer the Hindus.

    In short, the compelling reasons for the Aryan invasion theory were neither literary nor archeological but political and religious – that is to say, not scholarship but prejudice. Such prejudice may not have been intentional but deep-seated political and religious views easily cloud and blur our thinking.”

    What impact does the Hollow Earth understanding have on this issue? The impact that it has may be found in one of the best places to hide anything- right under our noses, in the Puranas themselves! The Puranas tell us that at the end of the Kali Yuga, Vedic culture becomes regenerated from the interior of the Earth, after the Kalki Avatar brings the Kali Yuga to a close. This is not the only reference to the hollow earth in the Puranas, but it is the one which indicates the origin of the Aryans ( Caucasian race ) on the surface of the Earth.

    The Caucasian race can easily be seen to stretch from Northern India to Scandanavia and to European Russia. How far would it be from the Artic coast of the Siberian and European side of the polar basin to the opening suggested by several hollow Earth researchers, which is offset from the North Pole just above the New Siberian Islands? ( See the oval on the map in Chapter Seven ) A hop, skip and a jump- no more than a few hundred miles. So how difficult would it be for the Caucasian and, of course, other human races to re-introduce themselves to the surface of the planet from this particular opening at the end of every Kali Yuga? It does not seem that it would be so difficult at all.

    In addition, the fact that the Caucasian race is so light skinned in Northern Europe is indicative of a top-down migration. This is because in the Middle East and India, the race has a light tan complexion. It is easier to go from a light complexion to a darker complexion, while is is harder to believe that darker skinned Caucasians migrated Northwards, then became sun bleached to their present blond haired, blue eyed state- the genes which generate fair complexions and blue eyes are passive. Therefore, we can surmise that the Caucasians are not Caucasian in origin but rather, that their surface migration began in Northern Europe, along the Artic basin, from the Polar opening to the hollow Earth.

    The reader may keep in mind that in millennia past, these areas were not as cold as they are now. As an example, we’ll note that Viking graves from 1,000 years ago have been opened up in Greenland, and it was found that roots, at that time, had penetrated the coffins. Now the graves lie under permafrost. This means that, previously, vegetation existed in the area and that there was a different climate.

    In addition to the large, polar openings there are said to be tunnels which connect the surface of the planet with the hollow portion. Nicholas Roerich, for example, in his book “ Shamballa,” wrote of his travels through Tibet in the 1920s, through the Karakorum Pass in the Altai Mountains. He was shown caves closed up by boulders, and he wrote of passing over what seemed to be hollow areas by the echos from the horses’ hooves, and wrote of a current recollection of the hollow Earth in the collective minds of the Tibetan people.

    Therefore, any cyclical reappearance of Vedic civilization and the Caucasian race could manifest from at least two points which span the length of the Aryan presence on our Earth, from top to bottom. The Caucasian presence in Northern Europe could be explained by migration from the polar opening, situated above the New Siberian Islands in the Arctic basin, while openings and tunnels in the Tibetan region could account for Caucasian presence also, even down as far as the Indian subcontinent.

    No Caucasian migration into India is necessarily indicative of an introduction of Vedic culture. Aryan insertion into any given area, India included, could have simply reinforced already existent Vedic culture without having been an introduction. It is not a matter, really, of accounting for the Aryan presence in the Indian subcontinent. Rather, it is a matter of accounting for human presence on the surface of the planet after the end of every chatur yuga, and the Hollow Earth Theory explains this admirably well in conjuction with the appearance of the Kalki Avatar and regeneration of the surface population from Shambhalla and the hollow earth.

    The hollow Earth theory certainly strengthens the Puranic account of a cyclical, re-population of the surface of our planet from the madhyatah, the hollow portion, including its chief city Shambhalla, and suggests that what is past will one day be prologue.

    In this way, the hollow Earth theory offers an intriguing alternative to previous interpretations of the Caucasian presence in India, otherwise known as the Aryan Invasion Theory.
