  • Persecution of Hindus refers to the religious persecution inflicted upon Hindus. The persecution of Hindus was carried out through forceful conversions, massacres, demolitions and desecration of temples, destruction of universities and schools, and targeting monks and Brahmins in massacres. Although Hindus managed to maintain their majority in rest of the regions in India, this led to killings of millions of Hindus and a deep social impact on concurrent Hindu customs and rituals. The most important Hindu power to emerge in the prolonged Islamic rule was the Maratha Empire founded by King Shivaji and expanded by his prime ministers Peshwas (1674 CE - 1818 CE). The Marathas are responsible, to a large extent, for ending persecution of Hindus under Muslim rule and are also considered to have implemented secular policies. In modern times, Hindus in the Muslim-majority regions of Kashmir, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Afghanistan and other countries have suffered persecution. (en)
