In early 1930s Nehru was in deep thought. He knew how great was Bharatvarsha since time immemorial until to the days of Rana Pratap, Shivaji, Jijabhai, Jhansi Laxmibai and Maharani Ahilyabai Holkar, to name a few. Something had to be done to degrade this sort of strong Bharat and convert it into India where the unwritten law of Muslims will prevail. AND THUS WAS BORN THE STRATAGEM OF treacherous SECULARISM.

Secularists have always mocked at Hindu women being kept secluded from public life. They twisted the truth and turned lies into truth through NCERT publications for schools (see also my FB earlier post on NCERT lies <<< >>>> ) and made people believe that Indian women are backward.

Bharatvarsha has produced many, many great women and brave women. One such great woman was Ahilyabai Holkar. She ruled the kingdom of Indore (which was then part of the wider Maratha Empire) for several decades. Her rule is remembered as a golden age in Indore’s history.

In 1766 her kingdom passed to her son. He is remembered as being an unworthy ruler – addicted to vice and at times cruel. At any rate, he died young and once again Ahilyabai resumed control of the kingdom’s affairs. Soon the kingdom became very prosperous. This attracted the envy of many.

The supreme ruler of the Empire, Peshwa Raghoba, was instigated by one of Ahilyabai’s own ministers to confiscate the excess wealth of Indore. Ahilyabai pointed out to him that under the agreements that existed the wealth of the treasury was supposed to be for the well being of her subjects or for charitable purposes.

The Peshwa was infuriated and took military action against her. She came to meet him on the battlefield with a small force, which included many women, and set out to fight. A message was sent to the Peshwa: “Now I will show you how weak I am. If I lose fighting against men I will have lost nothing. But if you lose against women then you will be in the soup! And remember, that is exactly what will happen.”

Strangely the Peshwa had a change of heart. He said, “You have misunderstood. I do not come to fight, but to mourn your son’s death.” He ended up staying as Ahilyabai’s guest for a month and was thoroughly impressed at the skill with which she ruled. For example, she had greatly reduced crime and theft, by encouraging poor people to get involved in trade and farming.”
