Zulfiqar Ali Khan
Zulfiqar Ali Khan was dispatched by the Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb to initiate the Siege of Jinji in 1690 after it was captured by the renegade Maratha leader Rajaram. He was soon after appointed as the first Nawab of the Carnatic, Zulfiqar Ali Khan then besieged and defeated Rajaram on and off there for eight years until the year 1698 and firmly established Mughal rule in the region. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 16:00, 3 November 2011 (UTC)
Establishment of Arcot Nawabdom: Maratha defeat
First of all, Congratulations for everyone who has started this article and have done good work to improve it so far. I just have some suggestions and I dont have the sources available to me to read and correct it myself.
To start with, citing a "The Hindu" article is probably not a good idea. A book or an article or a reliable website should be great. Secondly, the article says Zulfikar Ali Nawab was appointed by the Mughal empire for his defeat of Marathas. There is some ambiguity about this information. The article should probably mention about the Marathas, that is if it is the same maratha dynasty who are ruling Tanjore during 1674-1855? which maratha king they founght with and additional informations. Thanks and good luck for improving the article. vcpk (talk) 04:59, 2 January 2008 (UTC)
