History of medieval Deccan is marked by the political dominance of Muslims. Ethnically incoherent ruling Muslim nobility participated in the creation of the kingdom of Bahmanis with the assistance of the indigenous aristocracy. The process of establishment of the independent regional state is often viewed negatively by local authors. This paper aims to show the inadequacy of such standpoint using the example of the theory named 'The Dark Age of Marathi Literature'.
