The Historic Hindu Struggle Against Moslem Tyranny


The invasion of India by the Muslims saw a fierce Hindu-Muslim warfare for 600 years, from the year 715 C.E. up to 1326 C.E., during which period the Muslim invaders gradually occupied parts of India.

Muslim power as the major power in India, effectively ended in 1720 C.E., when the Marathas defeated the Mughal forces near Delhi - the city where the Occupation forces of the Muslims had established their capital from 1206 up to 1720. From 1720 onwards, it was the Marathas who were the real movers behind the Mughal power, although the Muslims continued to be the titular rulers from Delhi till they were formally ousted in 1857 by the British.
