Grandmaster Shifuji Shaurya Bharadwaj over the last year has created a wave in the online world, with his aggressive video’s and his army lookalike uniform. Shifuji donned combat attires which includes the combat insignia alleged to be a lookalike of the Balidan badge, a stiff (worn around the neck), a plain maroon beret, and a pointed mustache.
An expert in various combat techniques and inventor of MITTI (Soil) Swadeshi Customized System of Situation Reaction Tactics, he has trained multiple divisions of the armed forces, he is one of the most respected trainers today in India. What remains to be known about him is that he has trained Lakhs of Women from Rural India for free through Mission Prahar, an initiative founded by him. In this article we will be disclosing the actual truth of Grandmaster Shifuji Shaurya Bharadwaj.
In the last few months, he has been accused of numerous crimes and slammed by anti-nationalist media. Accused for being a fake, donning a military lookalike dress and being abusive towards critics of India’s sovereignty, integrity and its armed forces. Shifuji is subjected to extreme criticism from various quarters of media which is driven by an agenda to disrobe him of the support and patronage of the Indian masses.
Who is Shifuji?
Shifuji was born in the town of Gurdaspur Punjab, spent most of his life in Madhya Pradesh, Haryana and Punjab. Born to a Pehalwan and Ustaad of the Kushti Akhara, who retired from the Gun Carriage Factory. His mother was a teacher and worked with the slum dwellers, providing free education to the underprivileged all her life.
Living in a joint family predominant with Armed Forces Personnel, his upbringing was done in accords with the military way. A Child Prodigy he was trained in Khusti, Swimming and various other forms of Martial Arts. Born in the lineage of revolutionaries, his great grandfather was part of the legendary “Hindustan Socialist Republican Association” and was known to be involved in the Kakori Train Heist.
Is Shifuji a fraud – Allegations Vs. Reality
He is regularly accused of donning a military dress, along with a maroon beret, Marcos badge and balidan insignia with it, Often addressed as an army officer by his fans and critics alike, his credentials as a freelance trainer to the armed forces have been questioned. Now that the media and a few anti national elements question his patriotism and even have the guts to ask him about his contribution to the nation.
Shifuji has never stated that he is an army officer, nor has he claimed to be recruited or held any post in the armed forces. His followers and critics alike, have attributed him to be an army officer, though he has always maintained that he has served and trained personnel of the Indian armed forces, para-military forces, police as well as enforcement agencies. He has trained many military units in his long career as a freelance trainer, and is instrumental in developing combat and strategic training programs for both the army and state level forces.
What is the issue about fake military uniform?
Shifuji wears clothes like the armed forces, keeps discipline and fitness along with his fashion sense, these are part of his upbringing. He is accused of wearing a maroon beret, donning a Marcos and a Balidan Badge. The beret and the badge are synonymous to ranks and acknowledgement of exemplary service towards the nation. Also, to note that it is not prohibited by any law that a trainer and mentor while conducting a training session cannot wear camouflaged pants. Attire worn by Shifuji is complete out of his choice and discipline.
On further observation, it was pointed out that Shifuji’s maroon beret is designed similar to the ones worn by the elite forces, the beret worn by Shifuji itself bears no marks of the Indian armed forces, Indian special forces or Indian government. Stating further, he is accused of wearing the Balidan Badge, which is awarded to a rare few. It’s not true! Be noted that the badge worn by Shifuji, is a pattern akin to badges of military ranks and combatants in other part of the world, and worn without any restraint. He wears it printed on a camouflage t-shirt which is not at all a print of Indian armed forces nor does it contain any mark of Indian Special Forces.
The badge worn by Shifuji alleged to be the MARCOS badge was not worn in complete military attire or for that matter even the jacket worn by Shifuji bore a cutout sticker of legendary freedom fighter Bhagat Singh, which is not a protocol of the Indian Armed Forces.
Aggressive, Abusive or Patriotic
Often people call him abusive and aggressive, but then how can someone like Shifuji who has witnessed his family members laid to eternal rest by our treacherous neighbors contain his anger or for that matter anybody who has lost their loved ones protecting us from foreign aggression do so. In any case, for a staunch nationalist like Shifuji the nation comes before his personal views and opinions.
And for those who question the integrity and working of our army are welcome to preach our hostile neighbors humanity and other virtues, who would still not hesitate to pull the trigger even on their friendly “Pseudo-Liberals” whom the Armed Forces nevertheless protect.
No patriot would ever sit silent and watch when our Jawans are dying at the borders, while our politicians are busy eating samosas, and nor would someone like Shifuji, who is a true patriot at heart.
For the masses who have forgotten the true meaning of Nationalism, Shifuji gives some truly sensible lines which would surely come only from the heart of real Indian and a patriot.
“Watan walo, Watan na bech dena, yeh dharti, yeh gagan na bech dena, shahido ne jaan di hain, watan ke vaaste, shahido ke kafan na bech dena”

Grandmaster Shifuji & his work for India
Shifuji has selflessly carried out several free of cost youth empowerment programs to empower the women of rural India. After being peeved by the numerous rape cases, Shifuji took it upon himself to bring reality-based anti-rape tactics & extreme street survival protection skills to women. His view on assault against women is different. In fact, he asks “People blame present or past Government, Police and Law but how many blame themselves for not making self-protection and survival tactics training, self-defence training compulsory in India?” Through his ideas, he has trained over 39 lakh women in Mission Prahar, unique anti-rape tactics & anti-in-house assault programme. He founded Mission Prahar nineteen years ago to impart reality-based survival self-defence tactics. It was to educate women on self-protection, self-awareness and therefore self-defence & self-protection methods. These techniques are not only restricted to hand-to-hand protection but are inclusive in the use of accessories such as pens, hair-clips, ATM and ID Cards and basically anything that can be found in their handbags or surroundings.

Shifuji’s Vision and Mission:
Master Shifuji has a wide range of influences. One of his greatest role models is Indian revolutionary Shaheed Bhagat Singh Ji, sporting a moustache similar in style and often wearing clothing with his face printed on. Their nationalist views and ideas are what Master Shifuji abides by. They also influenced his choice to develop programs for the nation’s youth. Being a freelance mentor & trainer, Shifuji has a goal to unify the nation against threats while being ready to deliver the offensive. Shifuji is a staunch nationalist. His nationalism may be construed as abusive, abrasive and aggressive. But, having had a REVOLUTIONARY, freedom fighters & armed forces upbringing and losing family members due to war may have brought his aggression & pain. Therefore, he has brought on himself to be a freelance mentor & trainer and to develop, incubate and mentor various forces to deter anti-nationalistic attacks. What is to be respected that his services are free of cost to the Indian Armed Forces & he has never ever taken the credit for his selfless services.
Grandmaster Shifuji is currently working on two ‘dream projects’ to empower people of the nation especially the youth. The first is ‘Prachand Bharat’. Through this project, Shifuji wishes to educate all in the same way he was brought up, through core Gurukul education systems, with great moral values & pride, a regime in Vedic military training and disaster management.
Shifuji’s second goal is to empower women through ‘Mission Prahar’ where he aims to train 1 crore women of all ages in anti-rape & anti-in-house assault tactics for self- protection defence. He wishes to aid in the progress of India’s women through ‘self-actualization’ in a vibrant, self-excellent and holistic way with a sense of pride and glory towards the nation and themselves. This he believes, will contribute to the consistent growth of ‘Bharat’, the nation. While this may be his mission, he ultimately wishes that this goal progresses into positive awareness of women and development of core Indian values.
So far, MASTER Shifuji has approximately trained a total of 39,00,000 women across the country since 1999 but he says that he is still miles away from his goal of training one crore women of all ages. Shifuji is part of the more rare class of people attempting to change the outlook of India. In an age where women all over the country are in fear of assault or harassment, his views on positive awareness of women is a testament to his work. In the view of investing women with their own protection and self-help through extreme survival, protection skills of self-defence, Shifuji has welcomed an era of self-confident women. Shifuji has carried out some of the largest training workshops for women. The Mission Prahar team has organized workshops across rural areas in Assam, Bihar, Tripura, Meghalaya, Bhopal, Lucknow, Chitrakoot, Aazamgadh, Pune, Punjab, Indore, Ahmedabad, Mumbai, Delhi, Ajmer, Baanswara, Jaipur, Chennai, Bangalore, Nellore etc. All of these workshops have received a highly positive response and a massive attendance. To reach out to all ages, Shifuji has developed short training courses to accommodate training for young girls and kids.

Mission Prahar has seen an age range of participants like no other, with the youngest being two and a half and the oldest participant of 87 years. ‘Mission Prahar’ also distinguishes itself in training women irrespective of their caste, creed religion or sect, all of it free of cost and free of judgment.
Master Shifuji has spent years of his life in training to master various extreme warfare & fighting styles and has built his reputation. He is respectfully addressed as GrandMaster Shifuji, rightfully so because he does not keep his experience and teachings to himself. Despite his credentials, he calls himself a simple common Bhartiya and nothing else. His action speaks louder than his voice in showing us how he is a true son of the motherland a great Grandmaster. Shifuji is distinctive in his ability and his mission to aid the women of India in self-esteem, protection & survival and self-confidence.
