The Nizams of Hyderabad formed a Muslim dynasty that ruled over a predominantly Hindu population, and it is a tribute to the dynasty`s government that its Hindu subjects did not make efforts over the years to drive out the Muslim aristocracy by associating with the Marathas, Mysore or the European powers. Nizam advisers have become involved in more pressing concerns, such as the status quo agreement after India`s independence.
