But in this history there were some people who wrote their history with the brilliance of their swords, their valor and valor, who not only protected Mother Bharati but also entered the enemy’s house and hoisted the saffron flag. The history of which we are telling you today is the history of the time when a religious thought was booming in the Arabian desert thousands of miles away from this land of India. This religious thinking had covered the map of another Eastern Roman Empire and on the other hand the Persia Empire of Persia was also almost destroyed. Now it was the turn to go to the soil of India. But when all this was happening, a knight was playing in the soil here, the name was Kaal Bhoj, which everyone was called Bappa i.e. Father Rawal.

It is said about Bappa that when Harit Rishi saw the Arab Muslim invasions around 711-712 with his own eyes, he had said that a warrior would come who would drive out these Arab Muslim invaders. After this, born in 713, Kaal Bhoj i.e. Bappa Rawal’s education took place under the supervision of Harit Rishi, Maharishi Harit Rishi had taught him war, weapons and weapons. Not only this, when he was only 3 years old, he and his mother were feeling a little helpless, due to which they accepted to live among the Bhil community. In such a situation, the Bhil community took care of his mother and nurtured him. Along with this, the Bhil community had also given full support to Bappa in the fight with the Arab Muslims.

This child was born in the Gehlot Rajput dynasty, but seeing this, the entire people of Mewar started considering it as their father. Like by mixing small states with itself, giving respect to the entire subjects, named it Mewar dynasty and made Chittor its capital.

On the other hand, the rule of Arab robbers had been established in Sindh, now they were planning to trample all the land of India by moving east. But he did not know that at this time, at each other gate of India, there is the rule of Bappa Rawal, the most majestic warrior of the Mewari dynasty. Bappa Rawal, who was 9 feet high, whose sword used to lick the necks of five enemies with one stroke. No other warrior could match him in valor. These were the rulers and warriors about whom it is said even today in Rajasthani folk songs that Bappa Rawal first hoisted saffron and applied his head to your holy raj, then they were all Iran and Afghans who won, such were the swoop on Yavano. cheetah

When the army of Islamic robbers advanced after conquering Sindh, they faced Bappa Rawal, who was washed away by the Mewari army in some time. The robbers ran back. After some time, the army of religious robbers again attacked, once again Bappa’s sword made them run upside down. Now Bappa thought that it was better to attack his house every day than this mess. In the end, the army of Mewar attacked strongly and destroyed the strongholds of the sultanate of robbers in one blow and drew a new line which also included parts of Gandhara, Khorasan, Turan and Iran of Afghanistan. Due to Bappa’s military base, the city of today’s Pakistan was named Rawalpindi.

After all, how all this was possible, let us know the unique history of Bappa’s valor, whose fear of bravery and valor took 500 years for the Arab robbers to reach the throne of Delhi. After all, how did Bappa Rawal, who ruled Mewar, reach Sindh and then Iran and how a city named Rawalpindi was established there.

It is known to all that in the year 712 AD, Muhammad had conquered Sindh from Qasim. After that the Arabs started raiding all around. He defeated Chavadas, Mauryas, Saindhavas, Kachellas. His armies started spreading in all the regions like Marwar, Malwa, Mewar, Gujarat etc. On the one hand, where Nagabhat I drove the Arabs from western Rajasthan and Malway. On the other hand, Bappa did the same thing for Mewar and its surrounding region. Historical documents reveal that Guhil’s descendant Nagaditya was killed by the Bhils in 727 AD. This was the time when there was a fear of attack by Arab robbers on India. About 1400 years ago from today, the rulers and robbers of Arabia occupied the Middle-East and the areas of Arabia. After this he also conquered Egypt, Spain and Iran. In the meantime, the ruler of Iraq, Al-Hajjaj, was turning his eyes on India, full of wealth. He tried to attack here many times. Due to mutual differences and greed, he could not attack. However, by this time Arab robbers had started making minor attacks on Sindh.

After this, Muhammad bin Qasim, the nephew and son-in-law of Al-Hajjaj, attacked Sindh from the north-western border of India with the help of the Caliph in 712 AD. At that time Daharsen was the king there. The border of Sindh was from Kannauj in UP, Kandahar in Afghanistan to Kashmir and crossing the desert, the salt marshland was till Kutch in Gujarat.

Mohammad bin Qasim attacked his fort several times, but he was defeated by Daharsen’s army. Then one day Qasim deceived and sent his soldiers in Daharsen’s army wearing women’s clothes. Eventually, Daharsen sacrificed his life while fighting the enemies to protect the kingdom. Thus, the Arabs conquered Sindh and occupied a large part of it.

After this, all the empires that came in the way were becoming weak in front of the Arabs. No power was able to counter the Arab invaders. He had conquered present-day Afghanistan, Sindh, and was marching through the desert towards Mewar. Within a few years, the Arab invaders defeated the Chavadas, Mauryas, Sandhavas, Kachellas.

After this the Arabs occupied Jaisalmer, Marwar, Mandalgarh and Bharuch areas till 725 AD, entering present Rajasthan and Gujarat via Sindh. When all the empires were defeated in front of the Arabs. At such a time, the son of Nagaditya and Maharaja of Mewar, Bappa Rawal, took the reins of the war in his hands.

He gathered his huge army and made the defeated states in his favor by assuring him of victory. Bappa Rawal first captured the important Chittor fort located near Mewar and established the Mewar dynasty in Mewar in 734 AD.

After winning Chittor, Bappa shifted it from Nagda and made it his capital. He, along with the kings of Jaisalmer and Jodhpur, drove the Arabs back out of the border of Afghanistan. Not only this, Bappa showed courage and built a military post to keep an eye on Arab robbers in Rawalpindi, present-day Pakistan. Earlier this place was called Ghazni and on seeing the rule of Mewar Empire reached to modern Afghanistan.

Bappa extended his empire and Hindu empire up to Afghanistan. Not only this, he also married the daughters of the kings whom he defeated. It is said that all the 35 queens were daughters of Muslim rulers only. This Muslim ruler lost to Bappa Rawal or because of his fear, married his daughters with Bappa Rawal and made a treaty so that life could be saved.

That is, Bappa Rawal, along with other kings, fought with Arab robbers for 16 years and kept them away from the mainland of India. In this battle, there came a time when Bappa Rawal completely expelled the Arabs from Sindh and ended their influence forever.

By the 8th century, the saffron flag was hoisted up to Khorasan. Be it Gandhara of Afghanistan or Khorasan and Turan, apart from this, parts of Iran were also included, the Mewar kingdom started touching the desert of Arabia. This was the time when any Arab robber Khalifa did not even see the coming of India from far away from the fear of Bappa. Bappa was such an emperor who was never defeated by anyone. Chakravarti was the emperor. When he established peace in the entire region, he thought it appropriate to take retirement and at the age of 58, he took sannyasa and made his son the king of Mewar. After all, as time passed, Bappa’s age went on and finally at the age of 97, an invincible warrior was absorbed in the soil of Mewar forever. And leaving behind such a history that even today, Bappa’s valor and mighty songs are sung. That Bappa who did not get his history written by anyone but created it with his might.
