Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj is an ‘Emperor’ in the true sense – Uday Mahurkar, a History scholar

On the occasion of ‘Shivarajyabhishek Day’, a special ‘Online’ interaction ‘Hindavi Swarajya to Hindu Rashtra (Nation)’

‘The historians do not take cognisance of the range of ‘Hindavi Swarajya’ established by Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj. The ‘Swarajya’ of Maharaj occupied the area of nearly 1,600 km length. After his death, the Maratha army became the backbone of Delhi kingdom within a short span of 40 years. In comparison, the kingdom of Mughals who ruled in Delhi after arriving from Afghanistan was very small. Still, Mughals are called ‘Emperor’, ‘Badshah’; on the other hand, Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj’s bravery is unfortunately restricted up to Maharashtra only. If the life of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj was studied, it would be realised that he was a great Indian persona in the period of 1 thousand years. Therefore, Shivaji Maharaj was not only ‘Chhatrapati’, but an Emperor (Chakravarty Samrat) in true sense’, with such glorifying words Mr. Uday Mahurkar, an heir of Mahurkar royal family, a scholar of history and writer described Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj.

He was speaking at the special ‘Online’ interaction on ‘Hindavi Swarajya to Hindu Rashtra (Nation)’ organised by Hindu Janajagruti Samiti on the 4th June on the occasion of ‘Shivarajyabhishek Day’. In this interaction, famous writer and speaker, Dr. Sachchidanand Shevade spoke on ‘Hindavi Swarajya’ and National Spokesperson of Hindu Janajagruti Samiti Mr. Ramesh Shinde spoke on ‘Hindu Rashtra (Nation) from the viewpoint of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj. At the outset, Dharmaprasarak of Sanatan Sanstha Sadguru Nandkumar Jadhav garlanded the idol of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj. Mr. Sumit Sagvekar conducted the programme. The programme which was telecast live on Facebook and YouTube was viewed by 60,000 people and reached 65,000 people.

‘Swarajya’ of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj was not Sarvadharmasamabhavi, but ‘Hindavi’ ! – Dr. Sachchidanand Shevde

‘Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj generated pride for Dharma among the people who were persecuted by the Mughals and protected Dharma. He did not attack anybody with a sword to propagate Hindu Dharma. Is it because of this that the rule was labelled as Sarvadharmasamabhavi under the assumption that Hindu’s kingdom would definitely be all-encompassing ? Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj created the royal signet in Sanskrut language. His coronation ceremony was held in Vedic manner. However, the Hindu-proponents of Sarvadharmasamabhav are unfortunately trying to erase its identity of ‘Hindave Swarajya’, said devout Hindu writer and speaker Dr. Sachchidanand Shevade.

‘Hindavi Swarajya’ of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj is the ‘Hindu Rashtra’ itself ! – Ramesh Shinde

‘The region with only borders is called ‘country’; whereas, the concept of Rashtra (Nation), also includes history, language, culture, a measure of time, etc. of that region. In that sense, the ‘Hindavi Swarajya’ established by Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj is the ‘Hindu Rashtra’ in itself. He prepared the Government gazette by removing the Farsi words. He purified the converted Hindus and took them back in Hindu Dharma. He issued orders to build temples. A ‘collection of letters’ of correspondence made during the reign of Chhatrapati Sambhaji Maharaj is famous. Even that collection makes a reference to the ‘Hindu Rashtra (Nation)’. Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar said during his speech in the Parliament that Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj fought for the freedom of Hindus. Even then, why is there an insistence on labelling ‘secularism’ from the 19th century to Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj from the 17th century ?’, asked Mr. Ramesh Shinde. In the end, Mr. Shinde appealed to Hindus to awaken their pride and spare at least 1 hour daily for the ‘Hindu Rashtra (Nation)’
