Untold History-EP18 – The lioness who drove Taimur out of India


Our leftist historians have always told us how Timur Lang and his barbaric force of invaders had ransacked Delhi slaughtering hundreds of thousands of innocent Sanatanis. The same historians also tell with pride as to how Timur Lang robbed India of her immense wealth and left his Indian territories in the hands of Khizr Khan Sayyid in the pursuit of further territories throughout the world. But was this the ultimate truth? Did nothing else occur during that time in our nation? This is the half truth. in this new episode of Untold History, I have brought forward to you the tale of a warrior, who was deliberately hidden from us by the leftist historians. But before I proceed, let me tell you some crucial things. In our comment section, hundreds of thousands of our fans ask us as to from where we acquire the crucial information for our videos. So we thought that we should enlighten you about some of the important books about our history, our culture and our politics. The book that I have in my hands is ‘Saffron Swords’, whose writer is Manoshi Sinha Rawal and the co writer is Yogaditya Singh Rawal. This book has stories has tales of 52 such Indic warriors, who had destroyed the so called invincibility of the Islamic, as well as the British imperialists. Today’s tale is taken from this very book, and the tale is of the lady warrior Rampyari Gurjar, who forced Timur the Lame to abandon his India campaign midway and run for his dear life. Rampyari Gurjar was born to a Chauhan Gurjar family in Saharanpur, Uttar Pradesh. Fearless and obstinate from the beginning, Rampyari Gurjar used to inquisitively ask her mother about the prerequisites for becoming a wrestler, and then be it dawn or dusk, she would use to train herself in secluded places. Like the gold shines after being thoroughly incinerated, Rampyari Gurjar became a suave, but fierce warrior through continuous exercise, sheer merit and a disciplined lifestyle. Rampyari wore dresses just like the men would and she would go to watch the wrestlers’ display of martial skills along with her father and brother. Slowly the fame and the ability of Rampyari started spreading beyond her own village. But as every warrior has to face the most crucial battle of his / her life, so did Rampyari Gurjar came face to face with the most crucial battle of her life. This was the year of 1398, when Bharatvarsh was ruled by the Tughlaq Sultanate, but only in name, since no Indian ruler actually accepted the rule of the Tughlaqs. Into this scenario, stepped in the barbaric plunderer of Samarkand, Amir Timur, who was also known as Timur to some, and Timur Lang to others. The weak and inefficient Nasiruddin Tughlaq proved no match for the battle wit and the arsenal of Timur and the Tughlaq dynasty was crushed under the feet of Timur and his barbaric force of invaders. Following the defeat of Nasiruddin Tughlaq, Timur initiated the murderous dance of violence, which many people still hesitate to describe without any hesitation. Following the ransacking of Delhi, Timur now focused towards the Hindus and their beloved pilgrimages. If we go by the findings of British historian Vincent A Smith as written in his book ‘The Oxford History of India : From the earliest Times to the end of 1911’, Timur was driven by a solitary aim : destroy the entire Sanatan fold and establish the supremacy of Islam permanently in India. When Timur had invaded Delhi, he had deliberately spared those places, where the Muslims were in majority, and specifically targeted the Sanatani population. Countless people fell to the swords of the barbaric invaders and countless others were enslaved by Timur and his barbaric forces. Soon enough the news reached the Jat region, which includes today’s Haryana, and some regions of Uttarakhand and Uttar Pradesh. The then chief of Jat region, Devapala organized a Mahapanchayat immediately. This Mahapanchayat includes every community imaginable, be it the Jats, or the Gurjars, or Ahirs, Valmikis, Rajputs, Brahmins, even Valmikis as well. In the Mahapanchayat, Devapala not only made them aware of the barbarism of Timur and his forces, but also appealed to all the communities to forget their differences and unite for a common cause protect the Sanatan fold and set an example for the entire nation by giving Timur a taste of his own medicine. Following the agreement of all the communities to his plan, the Mahapanchayat decided to resort to guerrilla warfare against Timur and his forces. Under the fold of Mahapanchayat, 80000 warriors assembled together. A reserve force of 40000 warriors was created, which included only women. This force was commanded by Rampyari Gurjar, while the chief force was commanded by Mahabali Jograj Singh Gurjar and his loyal commander was the noble warrior, Harveer Singh Gulia. According to a concentrated plan, 500 young horseriders were instructed to follow Timur and his forces, and spy on them in order to get an indication of his plans and his future attacks. If Timur would intend to attack an place, the collected information would enable the Mahapanchayat to evacuate the old people and the children to safe places, along with the important valuables. The brave warrior Rampyari Gurjar took an oath to destroy the invaders, even to the peril of her own life. 40000 rural women were trained meticulously under the supervision of Rampyari Gurjar, assisted by four more warriors – Hardai Jaat, Devi Kaur Rajput, Chandro Brahman and Ramdai Tyagi. The 40000 female warriors included women from Gurjar, Jat, Ahir, Rajput, Harijan, Valmiki, Tyagi, Brahmin communities etc. There were many women who had probably never seen the face of a weapon, but in order to save their motherland, they were ready to fight with the most barbaric of invaders at the call of Rampyari Gurjar. In order to protect their motherland and their culture, these ‘incarnations’ of Goddess Durga didn’t hesitate from unleashing their fury through the weapons in hand. The youth in every village would train in the village akhada under the supervision of their rural head and during the occasion of important festivals, they used to show their martial prowess publicly as well. Soon enough the day of the Dharmyuddh drew close. The 1,20,000 warriors were eagerly waiting to hear the call of battle from the mouth of their beloved General, Mahabali Jograj Singh Gurjar. Roaring like a lion, Mahabali Jograj Singh Gurjar said, Veeron, remember what Bhagwan Krishna said to Veer Arjun. The moksha that our Rishi Munis attain from performing Yoga, we attain that by fighting on this very battlefield. If you give up your life fighting for your motherland, the entire world will praise your deeds. You’ve chosen me as your leader, so I shall not leave the battlefield until my last breath. Till my last breath and the last drop of my blood, I shall fight for Maa Bharti Our nation has been desecrated by the barbaric attitude of Timur the Lame. Rise warriors and do not delay. Fight the enemy and throw out of our motherland. On this roaring speech from Mahabali Jograj Singh Gurjar, Rampyari Gurjar kissed her sword, and so did the other female warriors. The conches were blown and the warriors took oath that they wouldn’t disobey their commander, and they wouldn’t rest until and unless the barbaric Timur and his forces were thrown out of their beloved Bharat. In order to ensure minimum casualties, the Mahapanchayat decided to resort to guerilla warfare. Rampyari Gurjar divided her forces into three divisions. One division would look for the food and camping of the warriors. The other division would procure the weapons for the warriors. The third division would attack the enemy forces and procure the provisions for the Mahapanchayat warriors. This would not only ensure food shortage for the invaders, but also break their confidence bit by bit. The same division was also entrusted with the task of raiding the invaders’ camps when they would come back for some rest. 20000 Mahapanchayat warriors attacked Timur’s forces at that time, when they had barely set out for Meerut from Delhi. 9000 invaders were dispatched to hell that very night, and before sunrise the Mahapanchayat warriors vanished into thin air, much to the chagrin of Timur’s forces. An agonized Timur set out for Meerut, but he was met with disappointment here as well. The route which he had taken was empty, including all the villages that came in between. The forces of Timur became restless, and before they could think otherwise, the Mahapanchayat warriors brutally attacked them, not giving the barbarians even a moment’s respite. If they tried to regroup by daytime, the forces of Mahabali Jograj Singh Gurjar would give them a living nightmare and if they receded to their camps, the women warriors led by Rampyari Gurjar would dispatch them to hell by night time and if they receded to their camps, the women warriors led by Rampyari Gurjar would dispatch them to hell by night time The devious attack by Rampyari’s force demoralized the barbarians led by Timur to the core. The demoralized, exhausted and injured force of Timur now proceeded to Haridwar. But it seemed as if the Gunas of Bhagwan Rudra were themselves waiting for them. The Mahapanchayat warriors attacked them once again and this time, the forces of Taimur were compelled to run away from the battlefield. In this very battle, Harveer Singh Gulia stunned one and all when he openly attacked Timur and pierced his chest with his spear. The loyal guards of Timur swooped down upon Harveer, but by then he had his done his job. Harveer breathed his last on the battlefield, but the wounds he inflicted never left Timur, and he died due to the infection in his wounds in 1405. The Timur who had invaded India with a barbaric force of millions, barely managed to escape
from here with just a few thousand soldiers. Interestingly, the entire episode was written down by the Persian historian Sharifuddin Ali Yazidi in Timur’s biography ‘Zafarnama’. This was no normal battle, but it was battle for the protection of the Indian culture, it was a Dharmyuddh where every social border was demolished in order to give the barbaric forces of Timur a taste of his own medicine. It is however unfortunate that none of the heroes of this battle are even discussed, forget being lauded for their actions. The valor of Rampyari Gurjar shall be nothing less than an inspiration for millions of Indian women if they learn of her today. This is the tale of the victory of Dharma over Adharma, this is the tale of the rise of millions of Durgas from the culture of Devi Durga, his is the tale of the unexpected loss of Timur The Lame. I shall continue to bring forward such inspiring tales with further episodes of Untold History.
