The Marathas and the Afghans



Note: Third Battle of Panipat (4th January, 1761) resulted in the defeat of the Marathas by Ahmad Shah Abdali(Afghan) and the death of Viswas Rao and Sadashiv Rao Bhau. This battle ended the Maratha power.

After the demise of Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb, there was an abrupt ascent of the Marathas. The Marathas turned around the entirety of his regional increases in the Deccan and vanquished a considerable part of India.

The decline was rushed by the attack of India by Nader Shah, who removed Takht-I-Taus (the Peacock Throne) and the Kohinoor Diamond in 1739 after the battle of Karnal.

Ahmad Shah Durrani intended to kill the Marathas when his child was driven out of Lahore.

Before the end of 1759, Durrani with his Afghan clans arrived at Lahore just as Delhi and defeated the smaller enemy garrisons.

The two armed forces battled at Karnal and Kunjpura where the whole Afghan garrison was killed or oppressed .

The slaughter of the Kunjpura post infuriated Durrani so much that he commanded for crossing the river no matter what to assault the Marathas.

Smaller battles continued through months and forces from both the sides amassed for the final assault. But food was running out for the Marathas.

The battle began in the extremely early times on January 14, 1761.

Since the Afghan powers were bigger in number, before the finish of the main day of the Third Battle of Panipat, the greater part of the Maratha powers had escaped, been killed or taken prisoner.

One of the reasons was that the Afghans' cannons was more viable.

More than anything, the Marathas' powerlessness to convince the Rajputs, Jats and Sikhs to battle on their side demonstrated deadly for the Marathas.

After the victory, the Afghan cavalry went out of control through the roads of Panipat, killing a huge number of Maratha troopers and regular folks.

The ladies and kids were taken in Afghan camps as slaves and kids more than 14 years old were executed before their own mothers and sisters .After the demise of Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb, there was an abrupt ascent of the Marathas. The Marathas turned around the entirety of his regional increases in the Deccan and vanquished a considerable part of India.

Albeit the Third Battle of Panipat changed the power conditions in India, the Afghans could hardly rule any more.
