Library of Modern Hindu History

The modern history of Bharat (India) begons with the onset of Islamic invasions on the frontiers of Gaandhaar (Afghanistan) in 700 A.D. Plunder and destruction continued for about 1000 years under the banner of Mughal rule. Along its course, this period witnessed scattered resistance and challenge to the tyrannical hegemomy from Hindu kings and laymen. The entry of British traders, their annexation of political power and their exit from the country took place from about 1700 A.D to 1947 A.D. The annals of this period proudly record the courage of the Hindus and their struggle to political independence, which finally was acquired in 1947 A.D., although at the cost of country's partition.
