    David Omissi is considered an authority of british military history..

    U are free to research about british recruitment and disbandment of nair regiments.

    And which so called defeat of the Dutch do u speak off?

    Battle of Colachel? a small skirmish with dutch trading company? :lol:

    Dutch occupied south india for over couple hundred years... they dominated south india by mid-late 16th century... their presence in S.I, lasted from 1605 AD to 1825 AD.

    Dominated? What a trading post that asked for permission LOL.

    The dutch never came back did they? Not worth the trouble when they could pursue more money with less hardship.

    I did much research, the Muslims, Rajputs, Gurkhas, etc...were very servile and obedient to their white masters. The South for the most part was not. Indian history to his day in the British records is highly one sided, subjected to erroneous myths and lies.



    There is no pride for Tipu...I could give a f-k. Oh so you think because he is muslim, Indian wouldn't like him LOL. I personally don't like a ruler that forces you to convert. If the religion was so great, nobody should be forced, should they?

    Definitely not from where you picked up your bullshit. Typical pakistani mentality. You're gullible enough to believe this hogwash racial martial theory. Then use that as pretense to prove what exactly? Completely clueless about your own damn history.....


    YOU stated British ruled India with no revolts? LOL full of BS. The biggest reason why armed struggled died out slowly, was due to the shortage in ammunition supply plus geography.

    Nairs and Coorgs beat the shit out of Tipu so many times. For us, the British was the better of 2 evils. Engaged with foreign muslims, we saw how they treated the locals. Cant be much different what we see today in Syria and Iraq, how ISIS treats the women and children as sex slaves, killing husbands, converting, etc.

    Pazhassi Raja was engaged in guerilla warfare and its where General Wellesley lost his first and only battle. Its from this experience, where he learned and used guerrilla warfare against Napoleon.



    Take a good look at all these pic of your brothers....they look just like everybody else. Dirty , dark and brown. Don't kid yourself. These are all Northies LOL...

    A defeated power who remained in Dutch india from 16 - mid 1800s... and later got replaced by more "defeated british " for another 2 centuries.. :rofl:

    Muslims is not a race.. And south india remained under dutch and brits for hundreds of years...





    ur likes makes that abundantly clear here on pdf and so does ur govt.... and tipus employed many hindu generals... and was a patron of hindu temples of his state.

    Nairs and others, became b... of britsh and fought under them against Tipu.....

    Just like nairs did for the dutch ..:lol:

    indian revisionist history wont cut it here.

    I see indian bitching asusual.

    P.S: My people actually fought brits.... who in turn, labelled us "Savages".

    Sure buddy no Hindu ever picked up arms against the British lol.. Only the muslims did LOL...happy with these "facts"


    Muslims are not a race? I never said so. There is hug difference between the attitudes of malabar muslims and the ones that invaded. They are nothing alike.


    Your timeline on the Dutch is false and fake.

    Typical pakistani's making up BS.

    Tips did what was best for his kingdom. Tips wasn't the only muslims king to use Hindu generals. There were many and many of them turned a blind eye for self preservation.

    I think its too complex for you to understand due to your inherent bias you have. That's why its difficult for you to grasp and comprehend. Better to live under the British than under muslims kings at the time. That's a fact kiddo. The choice was to the death, flight with the muslims kings against the British or fight the Muslims and side with the British. Its an easy decision for me.



    Do you even know why the nails gave up fighting? You're fighting an enemy with guns and cannons. If your weapons supply is dwindling, how long can you last with with swords an arrows, which they did use for sometime?

    Look at the state of the South today, and look at your present day state of affairs? Speaks volumes....

    Risaldar-Major Baha-Ud-Din Khan, Sirdar Bahadur, 1st Central India Horse

    [​IMG]


    Baha-ud-din Khan had a long and very distinguished military career. He served on the North-West Frontier, in the Indian Mutiny and in the China and Afghan Wars. At the end of his active service, tribute was paid to his ‘straightforwardness, honesty, utter fearlessness and strong personality’. He was appointed Risaldar-Major of his regiment in 1884 and was made Aide-de-Camp to the Viceroy in 1895.

    Here he is depicted in uniform with the badge of the Order of British India. His other badges include: the Jubilee medal; the Indian Order of Merit; the Indian Mutiny; China 1857-60; India General Service 1854-94; Afghanistan 1878-80; and the Kabul to Khandahar Star. He was one of the soldiers in the Indian contingent which came to England for the Diamond Jubilee.
