On Wednesday, february 28, a 21-foot statue of Rajput ruler Maharana Pratap was placed and dedicated at the "Maharana Pratap Chowk" in Begum Bazaar. It is said that the statue of Maharana Pratap in hyderabad is the largest and original one in Telangana.

The Maharana Pratap Jagruti Manch, which asserts that the statue is the first of its sort in all of South India, erected it in Begum Bazar.  According to the charity, artist Sunder Singh created it in three months and it weighs roughly two tonnes. According to a press statement from the Manch, "the man behind this initiative and execution is Thakur Surender Singh, a youth leader from Rajput community who put in lots of effort to install the huge statue."

Anil Kumar Yadav, a member of the Rajya Sabha, Makkan Singh raj Thakur, a state legislator, Corporator shankar Yadav, and other individuals took part in the program. The Rajputs, who are predominantly Thakurs, are dispersed over many states in northern India. Due to migration from the north, particularly after independence, members of the group can be found in metropolitan centres like hyderabad, despite having a small number in the south.

Maharana Pratap and the Mughals

More significantly, Maharana Pratap was the Mewar king and is now revered as a Hindutva symbol. The Rajput community knows and admires him mainly for his late 16th-century resistance against the Mughals (1526–1857). He is especially commended for defying the Mughal emperor Akbar and for taking a stand in the well-known Haldghati fight, which Maharana Pratap ultimately lost.
It should be mentioned that the Mughals also battled other Muslim rulers, even though proponents of Hindutva want to portray history as a Hindu vs Muslim conflict. Bijapur and hyderabad, which were ruled by the Adil Shahi and golconda dynasties (1518–1687) are prime examples. Aurangzeb, the Mughal monarch, conquered and destroyed both cities in 1686 and 1687.
