Mahar Regiment {Indian Army}

Mahar Regiment Indian Army




Mahar mahari means maha + ari which means big enemy.  The history of the Mahars starts from ancient times.  In the Puranas, Shri Rama killed the moth and it is said that the mahars carried it.  It is still a legend that if we know the title of 52 rights, then the emperor named Amrit gave 52 powers to the Mahra tribe, forcing the king's wife to take his masculinity from the enemy.  But it was not implemented;



How many people know about the Mahar Regiment? 
This regiment, possibly the first regiment to cover all caste religions in India, broke the practice of using British Marshal Theory in India.  Mahar regiment has played a leading role in the regiment of the Mahar Regt.  She has managed to maintain her reputation on the battlefield as well as during peacetime.  Along with that, she has done incredible gallantry in UN missions outside India.


Historyof Mahar People's 
       The Mahar tribe worked during the Shivaji Maharaj's detention and guarding forts.  The stories of the brave people of the Mahar are still heard. The tribe is known for its valor, honesty and hard work.  The soldiers in the Mahar Regiment are bitter with body.  We are going to tell you about some of these features.  Begum of one king was abducted by another king.  So the young Amrut  lost his masculinity and brought her back with great pain.  At that time, the emperor has provided 52 claims.  Even in the battle of the rock, Siddanak performed valiantly on the battlefield.

Now about the performance of Mahar Paltan in the pre-independence era

The Mahar Regiment has served in other parts of East India.  But not by official name, the Mahar Regiment received such a clear recognition in World War I.  The British refused to allow the untouchables into the army.  The Mahra people introduced their sincerity and bravery in Afghanistan and some parts of Pakistan.  But after being banned from the army, Gopal Baba Vangalkar, Namdar Gokhale, Subedar Ramji Ambedkar requested and applied to the British.  Nevertheless, the British entered World War I and then banned the British from using the policy of use and throw.  But after Babasaheb Ambedkar hit the British Defense Ministry, in 1942, 2 battalions of the Mahar Regiment were raised and training was given from Belgaum.  Over time, the regiment's training center was set up at Kamthi, then Sagar. It is still standing today.

       We do not know about the murder of Rajiv Gandhi.  I will write another post on what killed you too





 So what we saw Rajiv Gandhi mainly focusing on was the Naxalites and terrorists, and the Maharan Battalion which showed extraordinary bravery.  In it, operation litte was established in southern India and in Tamil the Tamil people formed an organization to fight bigotry.  Her name was litterable, with the help of Pakistan by the organization .The Sri Lankan government was helpless to eradicate it. The Indian Army of the Peace Corps participated in it.  But the Mahar Battalion played a key role.

Major Ramaswami parameshwaran:--
