A person quotes this. “अहिंसा परमो धर्मः” -non violence is religions 
virtue, in times of peace.. “धर्म हिंसा तथैव च:” -violence too is 
virtue, in times to protect religion..
*Shivaji *practiced whats is preached in Bhagavad Gita.. Shivajji’s 
raids on Portuguese indeed carried a deeper meaning.. Thanks, Regards,

Could you please show the verse where the reading 'dharma himsa tathaiva 
cha' is present?
For one, in Shankara's Brahma sutra too, we have the discussion where it 
is concluded that himsa that is enjoined in a yaaga is not himsa that 
would bring paapa for the performer.  This is an exception to the 
general rule: maa himsyaat sarvaa bhuutaani.  Also, a punishment by a 
Govt./King for an offence is not himsa that brings papa for the Govt. 
official/executioner/King. It is part of Raaja dharma : saama, daana, 
bheda and daNDa.

      The Mahabharata in Sanskrit

          Book 1
          Chapter 11

    12 अहिंसा परमॊ धर्मः सर्वप्राणभृतां समृतः
          तस्मात पराणभृतः सर्वान न हिंस्याद बराह्मणः कव चित
    13 बराह्मणः सौम्य एवेह जायतेति परा शरुतिः
          वेदवेदाङ्गवित तात सर्वभूताभय परदः


    इदं चोवाच वचनं रुरुमप्रतिमौजसम्।
    अहिंसा परमो धर्मः सर्वप्राणभृतां वर।। 	
    तस्मात्प्राणभृतः सर्वान्न हिंस्याद्ब्राह्मणः क्वचित्।
    ब्राह्मणः सौम्य एवेह भवतीति परा श्रुतिः।।

    Someone on social media try to declare: The above quoted facts we
    know but someone says The second verse धर्म हिंसा तथैव च: is fake.
    It is neither found in Mahabharata nor in any other pre modern Hindu
    literature. It was recently fabricated by a fraud Baba.

    Please help me.
