Most of the communal elements make baseless allegations against Nizam Mir Osman Ali Khan Bahadur and other Asif Jahi rulers and try to mislead young generation. Bigoted media also play a major role in promoting these false allegations.

It must be noted that Asif Jahi rulers especially Nawab Mir Mahboob Ali Khan Bahadur and VII Nizam Nawab Mir Osman Ali Khan Bahadur took very good care of their Hindu subjects. Osman Ali Khan regarded Hindus and Muslims as his two eyes. He appointed Hindus on major posts, donated Jagirs for temples, and gave huge funding for Hindu Educational Institutions.

On the request of Nobel Laureate Sir CV Raman Mir Osman Ai Khan donated Rs 1 lakh for Indian Institute of Sciences. Similarly on the request of Madan Mohan Malaviya, he sanctioned a grant of Rs. 10 lakh for Banaras Hindu University. Sir Syed Ahmed Khan too requested fund for Aligarh Muslim University for which he granted Rs. 5 lakh. When sir Syed Ahmed Khan asked the reason behind this discrimination (granting Rs. 10 lakh for Hindu University and Rs. 5 lakh for Muslim University), he clarified that Hindu population is much more than Muslim population.

It was Mir Osman Ali Khan who allotted 54 acre land to Dr. B R Ambedkar where the later established Milind Education Society. A glance on the files of Andhra Pradesh Archives reveals that Nizam donated Rs. 82825 for Yadgirgutta temple, Rs 5000 for Sri Rambagh temple, 50000 for Bhadrachalam temple and Rs. 8000 for Sri Balaji Tirupati temple.

The communal elements should study history before spewing venom against the Muslim rulers.
