That is very unfortunate, just like Pakistan, trying to erase history. But such attempts will never succeed, not at least in India. Hinduism is not interested in such things. In Valmiki's Ramayana, Lord Rama said:

"Satyam eva ishwaro loke, satyam dharmah sadashrita;
satya moolani sarvani, satyena nasti param padam."

(Truth is God in the universe, in truth 'dharma' finds good refuge;
all have their base in truth, there is no station higher than truth.)

Jai Sri Rama

The major part of Maharashtra was ruled by the Mughal Dynasty for less than 20 years and only 1 Mughal ruler Aurangzheb played a major role because of the Maratha-Mughal war.
So it makes sense that Maharashtra does not want to waste too many pages about such a small time frame. It is the same as criticizing Odisha for not mentioning in their history books the Chola invasions and rule of Odisha which lasted for less than 50 years

well this is a new and quite worrisome trend in India. we must learn from the mistakes of the past, not forget them. however, India has a large and rather intellectual middle class that will balance out Bhakts and commies both. Further, most Indians are utterly un interested in history.

if the Left had not been so dishonest over the last 70 years, what with glorifying everything mleccha at the expense of native history, then these Bhakts would not exist today and you, a "Pashtun" would not be thinking that you can lecture the only stable democracy in South Asia on how to go about their business.

How are they going to narrate Maratha history without involving Mughal history?........ for example the scene of Shivaji standing in line in Mughal darbar and expecting 7 hazarai mansab from Aurangzeb...in that scene the teacher has to explain to the students what exactly was "mansab" of the Mughals.

I think the title is misleading. The point is that Maharashtra does not mention Mughal rulers like Babur, Humayun, Akbar and Shah Jahan because they never ruled Maharashtra. But Aurangzheb will be mentioned because of the Maratha Mughal War. If Haryana decides to leave out the major part of the Vijayanagar Empire history in their history books then nobody would make a huge deal out of it as Haryana was never under the Vijayanagar rule.

so in the Indian states they only teach provincial/state history? a more general history of the Indian subcontinent is not taught?

India is a federal state which means every state is quite independent and every Indian state is allowed to follow its own policies. This is also the main reason why there is a huge difference in terms of development and education between the different Indian states
