1/n #SadarPranam to Ishvara within u @yusufpore ji. It was not fair play by you to crit @Tejasvi_Surya & not tag him.

Anyways I read whole thread praising #Mughals & this thread is a rebuttal to your claims, which u may respond, when tweet reads n/n & should u hv enuf substance. https://twitter.com/yusufpore/status/1256980776064671745
2/n This is a rubbish claim. Baburnama has no record of it (point of agreement comes in the translator's note).

It is to be noted that he wasn't writing his diary during that period. Rajput chroniclers say otherwise than what GN Sharma claims.
3/n @yusufpore , in fact, Daulat Khan Lodi, the governor of the Punjab and the king's uncle, invited Babur, the ruler of Kabul, to invade India.

4/n Baburnama too has the mention of same again in translator's note about Daulat Khan appealing Babur to come to India to defeat Ibrahim.

While Translator had no primary source for Rana inviting Babur, this has the mention of Ahmad Yadgar.

5/n @yusufpore now let us analyze the citation given by you. GN Sharma mentions of Rajput chronicler (Unknown). He mentions that Babur asks for help from Rana & not otherways as u hint.

GN Sharma does not mention what exactly Rana wrote back.
6/n It is a juxtaposition that Rana offered support. There is no primary or secondary source to establish this claim. Now moving on to the next part. Sharma explains why it is even foolish to believe that Rana would ask for help from Babur.
