    Thumbs up prithviraj chauhan's grave

    A brief note on Prithvi Raj (III)Chauhan:
    Prithviraj Chauhan was the last Hindu king to sit upon the throne of Delhi.
    Delhi continued to be under the control of muslim rulers untill the British period. In the first Battle of Taraori (misspled as Tarain) (1191 CE) Muhammad Ghori invaded Prithviraj's domains. Prithvi Raj defeated Ghori.
    He begged his captor for mercy and release. Prithviraj's ministers advised against pardoning the aggressor. However, the chivalrous and valiant Prithviraj respectfully released the vanquished Ghori.
    Second Battle of Tarain (1192 CE): The very next year, Ghori repaid Prithviraj's gesture by again invading Prithviraj's kingdom with a stronger army. Again, the two armies met at Tarain. The Hindus followed a traditional practice of battling only between sunrise and sunset. Ghori attacked the surprised Rajput army before daybreak and thus emerged victorious.
    As a prisoner Prithvi Raj haughtily looked straight into the Ghori’s eyes. On this Ghori made Prithvi blind.
    Even after loss of his sight, he did not lose courage. He along with his poet friend Chand Bardai killed Ghori and then stabbed themselves to put a chivalrous life to an end. Prithvi Raj rather sought his death himself than being killed by Ghori's army. Such was the life of this great warrior and saviour of his subjects.

    Even today Afghans vent their anger on Prithviraj's Grave by stabbing on it through a rope & then pay accolades to their defeated king Ghori. It's a pity that the Indian Government who is engaged in the construction work of a war ravaged country has no time to pay honour or renovate the grave of a Valiant King.Our honourable Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Rahul Gandhi had time to visit Babur’s grave and pay ‘homage’ (if I may add, to please a section of society) and not to our very own Indian.


    It is not a matter of which caste he belonged to but what he did and who he was – A great Indian king. His is a story only heard in hypothetical story books. However he was for real and died and lived in way which is worth saving his grave of malicious people.

    Some part of Indian tax payer’s income goes into the resurrection of Afghanistan and we have the moral right to question the dilapidated state of the grave. People who beat up the grave should come and see Humayun’s tomb in India – a contrast in the treatment meted out and maintenance.

    We request our fellow citizens to pass this mail forth to each and everyone and request Indian Government to take up this issue forth with the Government of Afghanistan. Either the remains should come back or treated with respect.

    I hope and expect every Indian will take sometime off his/her valuable time to pass this on and put this little (even if it is like a drop in the ocean) effort to save the grave of our martyr.

    Rightly pointed out...apane kisan suicide kar raahe hain, magar sarkar dusron key ghar bhaar raahe haiin...I wonder afghanistan ki vote kyaah inh politicians koh mil sakti haiin kyaah?

    Saari dunia koh malum hai ki bharat men kitne logon key paas 2 vakt ki roti naheen hai...fir bhi dikhane men lag raahe haiin ki hum kitne dayaalu hain...
    I don't think the afghanistan will return the favour. In the end, they will support their brethren as usual.

    Prithviraj Chauhan and the Jats

    http://groups.yahoo.com/group/JatHistory/message/2230

    From the records of the Sarv Khap Panchayat, book " Sarv Khap ka
    Ithihaas' by Nihal Singh Arya


    Shahbudin Ghauri (Ghori) and the Jats

    1191 CE or Samvat 1248

    Shahbudin Ghauri (Ghori) and the Jats

    1191 CE or Samvat 1248

    In the aftermath of the loot of Mahmud of Ghazni, the people had lost
    their faith in temples, mutts and the Panda priests. The Gurus and
    sadhus were still revered. The petty kingdoms were fighting among
    themselves.

    The petty rajas would spend their time in fighting over women and
    marriages. Eight months of the year would be spent like this. They
    were indolent and their time was spent in lustful activities. The
    Charan Bhats would spend their time making up false stories to please
    their masters, and cause their masters to quarrel and fight with each
    other. The country was divided into petty kingdoms. Only around Delhi
    the Republic of the Sarv Khap of Haryana was stable, and free from
    these lowly conditions.

    Afghanistan was the seat of the Gaur /Ghaur Clan. They were quite
    powerful. With the advance of the Arab Jihad, they lost and converted
    to Islam. Mahmud Ghazni had seized their kingdom by treachery.
    Allaudin mounted an attack on Ghazni, seized it and destroyed it.
    Ghazni at time was one of the more beautiful cities in the world.
    Allaudin spared the tomb of Ghazni and put the rest of the city to
    fire, the inhabitants of the city were enslaved. In 1213 Vikram Samvat
    Allaudin died.

    Gyasuddin became King after Safudin and Vahiudin. His younger brother
    Shahbudin followed him.

    Chitrarekha Nag, was a beautiful Indian dancing girl, who had been
    brought from India by Husain the son of Shahbudin's paternal Uncle.
    (Chacha). Shahbudin also passionately desired this dancer. Mir Hussein
    took this dancer and ran way to Ajmer, where he took shelter with
    Prithviraj Chauhan. Prithviraj Chauhan also became infatuated with
    this dancing girl.

    At that time the Chauhans were to be found in Ajmer. Vigraraj was the
    earlier the ruler. In Delhi, Prithviraj Chauhan was ruling. He was son
    of the daughter of the Tanwar (Tomar) Anandpal. In Kannauj Jaichand
    Gahadwala, was in power. In Bengal Luxman Sen. in Bundelkhand Parmal
    Chandela had his capital at Mahobeh. In Malwa, Bhoj of the Parmar clan
    was ruling. In Gujarat in Anhilwara Bhimdev Solanki was in power.
    Anhilwara was a famous city in India and the Chauhans were afraid of
    the Anhilwara might.

    Shahbudin took the excuse of Chitrarekha and mounted a siege on Ajmer,
    in 1191 CE but lost.

    The Sarv Khap Panchayat supported Prithviraj Chauhan with 22,000 Mulls
    or warriors. The leader was a Rajput ,Udaybhan and the deputy
    commander were Hriday, of the Brahmin caste. The left wing of Ghauri's
    army was annihilated by the Sarv Khap army.

    In the next battle between Shahbudin Ghauri at Khanderao, the Sarv
    Khap sent 18,000 Mulls. They pushed Ghauri troops back 25 miles.

    The Head of the Sarv Khap Panchayat, at the time was Dunghar Jat. The
    Deputy head was Harish Chandra Taga (Tyagi). Sheoram Das, Kayasth and
    Shyam Prasad Bania were the Treasurers. Ram Dayal Bhat was the
    incharge of diplomatic communications. He was a learned man. He would
    always give sound advice. He would teach the Mulls (warriors) well, ad
    keep a sharp eye on them. The Panchayati heroes never let bad or
    depraved habits enter their company. Where the rajas were sunk in
    depravation, the Panchayati republic was the abode of the Gods themselves.


    A Bhat ( Bard) Hariprakash painted an accurate picture of the depraved
    conditions of the monarchial courts. The rajas had become
    characterless. They would fight over women. Only the Sardars (leaders)
    of Mohabah were immune. They did not succumb to the high low casteism.
    Prithviraj lost many of his leaders in these blood sport fights over
    women. Prithviraj had become a fallen person, and was found drunk day
    and night in his harem of prostitutes. The court was full of women
    talk. Heroism had rusted. Prostitutes would dance daily in the courts.
    The eyes were closed to the Islamic Jihad.

    The Chauhan, Rahtors, and Chandelas were being destroyed by in
    fighting. Prithviraj went to war with Jaichand over a woman. He
    brought many women to his harem in this manner. On his taking and then
    leaving a woman of a Rawa clan, the Sarv Khap broke off relations with
    him.

    Seeing these conditions, Shahbudin Ghauri once more attacked Delhi in
    1193 CE. Prithviraj had lost many of his commanders in these petty
    bloodsport fights. Chandra Bhan Bhat somehow got Prithviraj out of his
    Harem. A 50,000 strong army was collected. The son in law of
    Prithviraj, Samar Singh, brought 12,000 troops from the Raja of
    Chittor. The Sarv Khap contributed 18,000 troops, and in this manner
    the army's strength was raised to 80,000. The army was very strong,
    but a traitor rajput, Vijay Singh joined the army of Ghauri.

    This battle was fought near Thaneswar (modern Haryana near Karnal).
    Rana Samar Singh and the Sarv Khap army fought for three days. The
    enemy could not advance one inch. A great warrior Sagar Singh Rohrd
    led the Panchayat army. The assistant commanders were three Jats, 5
    Gujars, four Ahirs, three rajputs, two Sainis, four Brahmins.
    Hardhan, Mardhan, Jungam, Bugli were four warriors of the Jat Dahiya
    clan. When these 30,000 warriors had been sacrificed, then the 50,000
    strong army of Prithviraj Chauhan advanced.

    The seasoned warriors of this army had already been lost, sacrificed
    to the blood sports of Prithviraj. The army was consisting of new
    green recruits. They were brought up in a life of ease, women and
    drink. In an hour they ran away, and the battle was over. Prithviraj
    was captured, and Shahbudin hoisted his flag of victory over Delhi.

    In 1194(1251 Vikram S), Jaichand was defeated.

    When Shahbudin Ghauri was going back to Afghanistan, the Khokkar Jats
    attacked him on the banks of the Sindhu River. The General of the
    Khokkars, Anirudh, cut off Ghauri's head in Vikram Samvat 1262 ( 1205 CE).


    His slave commander Kutubudin Aibak succeeded Ghauri, and the
    Panchayat fought many battles with him

    Prithviraj Chauhan was taken to Afghanistan where he was blinded and
    tortured to death,

    The Jat reaction:



    1. THE HISSAR PANCHAYAT ( 1251 Vikram Samvat, 1194 AD)

    The SarvKhap called a Panchayat at Hissar (now in modern Haryana) in
    VS 1251 (1194 AD). It was a very large and well-attended panchayat.
    While the Panchayat was in progress, Kutub U Din 's army attacked
    them. The SarvKhap army fought hard with the enemy. A fierce battle
    took place. Many soldiers were killed on both sides. The enemy Muslim
    soldiers could not stand up to the brave SarvKhap soldiers, and were
    defeated and ran away. They were killed in great numbers. The
    SarvKhap army was victorious in this battle. (The history of the
    Panchayat of the 18 Khaps- Author Ramsingh Sahityaratan).

    2. THE PANCHAYAT OF BHAJU AND BHANERA, (1251 VS (1194 AD),
    Jyesta, Sudhi Teej.

    (Held under the stewardship the Khap Baliyan, (who were the ministers
    of the Sarv Khap at Shoron, district Muzzafarnagar.)?

    In the jungles of Bhanu Banera a great panchayat was held. People
    from all jatis (castes) participated. There were 30,000 attendees of
    whom there were 15, 000 Mulls (Warriors). Most the participants were
    Jats

    The chairman of the panchayat was chosen to be Chaudhry Vijay Rao,
    who was of the Baliyan Khap, and a resident of Sisauli.


    The Jat Gogarmull was chosen as the chief general of the
    Mulls (Warriors).

    This panchayat was called to discuss and deliberate upon the defeat
    of the Chauhans and the Rathores (Prithviraj Chauhan and Jai Chand
    Rathor) by Mohamad Ghauri.

    The chairman of the Panchayat gave a resounding speech, some extracts
    of which are as below:

    Explaining the reasons of the defeat of the Chauhans the Chairman
    said:

    " His (Prithviraj's) character had fallen. He was drunk day and
    night, and spent his time in the harems. His focus had strayed from
    looking after the well being of the population, maintenance of
    military skills, teaching his soldiers military skills, and
    protection of the nation. His Senapati (general) and his soldiers
    also became drunks and developed bad habits and behavior. Jaichand
    Rathore betrayed the nation by going against him. At the end he
    (Jaichand) too received the reward of death."

    still question is same "What abt his grave???"
    hould v brought back his "Asthiya"

  6. #6
    Well I understand and respect your sentiments.... But don't you think in the present scenario there are other issues which demand us to be together and move ahead with.
    He was great king and I personaly admire him a lot but this does not motivate me to think of bringing this issue....Its all abt living....If we really want to show our respect to him..let us try to follow what he followed and taught us instead of mourning about something which may not be of that relevance. Instead we can show our true respect to him.....by standing for something what he faught for. That way probably we can make him alive...and let him live...

    Smile

    We have coins of this period. On one side is inscribed "Muhammad bin Sam"

    other side is "Prithvi Raj Dev"

    that means both were ruling together at Ajmer.

    after one year Prithvi acted to be smart with gauri and Gauri immediately killed him in conspiracy with his son.

    later his grandsons shifted to Ranthumbhore, and found a new Chauhan empire over there.

    Sakas were the most just people upon earth. Even with Vikram era their era is accepted by Indian Govt. along with asokan symble the four lions.

  12. #12
    all this history of "mut chuke chauhan is fraud", even sanyogita swayambar is fraud. Even to the extent that Prithvi was Rajput is also fraud.

    even Chandrabardai who wrote "Prithvi Raj Raso" is also fraud. Chandrabardai was born centuries after Prithvi.

    used to be some Jamugha, known as Gengiz Khan. Where half of the world population was being ruled by mongols. Even his grave is not yet identified.

  17. #17
    when Gengiz threatened a king in persia/afghanistan, he sought an assylum in Delhi. There then Sultan of Delhi answered to that king, "DElhis wheather will not suit you"

    Otherwise that Bogdawat Jat would have invaded India like Taimur.

    pseudo-historians and pseudo-secularists are equally dangerous

    I feel that last hindu king to rule Delhi was Naahr Singh. Even if say for a few months
    He was hanged and Bahadur shah was simply exiled, so his contribution seems to be more than the emperor of Delhi.

    ek grave identify karyi thi va Badshah Akabr ki Sikandara me. Jattan nne va phoonk geri. Rajaram Gokula ke zamane me.
