The Medieval History of Magadh(Bihar) was the darkest age of all times. This was the beginning of the downfall of Bihar. No one or no writer has ever written a detailed record on it. Here, I shall present you the whole story that caused the downfall of Magadh that started from the Medieval Period.
Magadh(Bihar) had a great Buddhist influence during Medieval Period due to conversion of Ashoka The Great to Buddhism. Nalanda and Vikramshila was great Powers of learning at that time. But there was none efficient ruler present who could protect the boundaries of Great Magadh(Bihar). Right from 11th century, Magadh(Bihar) came to be attacked by Islamic invaders from middle east. It was attacked by Muhammad of Ghor several times. He destroyed a lot of Buddhist monasteries and killed many innocent people in the name of religion. The final blow was struck by Muhammad Bin Bakhtiar Khilji in 1203. He attacked Bihar and burnt Nalanda University and Vikramshila University, he burnt a lot of books which were about the glorious past of Great Magadh(Bihar). By burning such books, he wanted to create fear among the Future Magadhan generations that they are inefficient and an incapable race good for nothing because he knew that if some one who can threw these Islamic invaders from middle east outside India, they were Magdhans under an able Leader. So, he thought of destroying a weak Magadh before it becomes powerful. He massacred a lot of innocent Buddhists monks too.
Magadh(Bihar) came to be ruled by Sher Shah Suri in 1534 who later took the control of whole of India. Some foolish and idiot historians have compared his rule to the rule of Lord Rama or Ashoka The Great and has emphasized that he was born in Sasaram of Bihar and he was a Magadhan(Bihari). This is one of the most idiot philosophies that I have read being a Magadhan. It is as if you are calling terrorist Osama Bin Laden as an American citizen. Sher Shah Suri was Never a Magadhan(Bihari). He was a traitor, fascist and cruel man. Sher Shah was son of an Afghan migrant and his mother tongue was Afghani. He always considered himself Afghan. he fought against Mughal Sultan Humayun because everyone knows the arch-rivalry between Mughals and Afghans. No one writes about the facts that Sher Shah Suri killed many innocent Hindus of Bihar in the name of religion. He also destroyed the idols of Great Chandragupta Maurya, his mother Rajmata Mura and Ashoka The Great. He tried to erase the History of Bihar and tried to create a story that Hitory of Bihar has originated from himself. And you see, most of the people belief in this false story,. If you visit any website relating to Bihar, those websites will be full of praises for Sher Shah Suri as if those writers were born from Sher Shah Suri or they come from the family of that Afghan. Just because of Sher Shah Suri false stories, People of Bihar has forgotten the names of their real ancestors like Ajatsatru, Chandra Gupta Maurya, Ashoka The Great, Chankya and many more. This was one of the greatest mistakes ever done in History and we strongly oppose it being The True Blood Magadhans.
Bihar after Sher Shah Suri came to be captured by those lousy character Mughals. They used to take every decision of Bihar sitting from Delhi. There was no great school of education in Bihar which could teach the students about greatness of their culture in Magadh at that time. Too much taxes were imposed on People of Magadh(Bihar) by Akbar and his successors. Bihar during Aurangzeb (A Mughal King) time came to be ruled by his grandson Azim-Us-Shan who became the Governor of Bihar. He renamed Patliputra(India's ancient capital and present capital of Bihar) to Azimabad in 1704. Now see the real drama. Patliputra, the World famous capital city of Great Magadhans who created Unified India under Ashoka The Great was named Azimabad by an invader of Bihar. And there are some stupid and illiterate politicians of Bihar who are saying that Patna(present capital of Bihar) should be renamed Azimabad. Is these politicians children of Mohammad Azim-Us-Shan, the Mughal butcher who assassinated local people of Bihar, tried to erase our History and there are still such people who wants to rename our great city of Patliputra to Azimabad. Can you ever imagine an American politician saying that we shall rename New York to Osama-Bin-Laden-bad(let us name it after Osama Bin Laden). This can never happen in America, such things can only happen in India. Our country is full of traitors and these traitors has caused our great country to fall.
After Mughal rule, Bihar came to be ruled by Nawab of Bengals which again looted Bihar and its resources. So, this middle age caused Magadh(Bihar) to fall. There was not even a single able leader to oppose these oppressions on our people. The confident of people of Magadh was destroyed due to burning of Nalanda University. The future generation never came to be known of its glorious past. This caused them to live every time in fear. Muhammand Bin Bakhtiar Khilji automatically became successful in his mission of destroying the confidence, history and cultute of Great Magadh and Magadh in later period came to be ruled by other people sitting from Delhi and Bengal. It still continues to the present day. Politicians who has never visited Magadh(Bihar) once in their life time writes the budget of Magadh(Bihar) and they never give proper money for Bihar's growth. These same politicians can't do the same with Maharstra and Tamil Nadu because their leaders knows how to Fight for their Rights. But our politicians can never think beyond their caste, greed and more over there are some Politicians of Bihar who don't even know the name of their Fathers. These people some times tell Aurangzeb as their Father, some times Sher Shah Suri, some times Azim-Us-Shan. But they don't know that Magadhans are the descendants of One Blood and One Race. We are Children of Ashoka The Great, India's greatest ruler ever born, and will always be. I hope you must have liked the true story of Medieval History of Great Magadh(Bihar).
