Hindavi Swarajya(Devnagri:हिन्दवी स्वराज) (IPA:Hindavī Svarājya) ("Indian self-rule" or "Hindu self-rule") is a term for sociopolitical movements seeking to remove foreign military and political influences from India. The term was first used in a 1645 CE letter by Shivaji, founder of the Maratha Empire. The term was later adopted by Bal Gangadhar Tilak, one of the early leaders of the Indian independence movement against the British Empire.
