Mughal Barbarism and Islamic Savagery in India In this article I will talk about in details about Mughal Barbarism and Islamic Savagery in India. It is so shocking and unbelievably savage that it will make you question the History you have been taught in India by Communists in NCERT and JNU/ DU. Historian Will Durant has written in his Story of Civilisation that "the Mohammedan conquest of India was probably the bloodiest story in history. The Islamic historians and scholars have recorded with great glee and pride the slaughters of Hindus, forced conversions, abduction of Hindu women and children to slave markets and the destruction of temples carried out by the warriors of Islam during 800 AD to 1700 AD. Millions of Hindus were converted to Islam by sword during this period." Muslim invaders - Arabs and Turks wanted to destroy idolatry, kill the kafirs, capture prisoners of war, and plunder vast wealth for which India was well-known. The massacres of Hindus in medieval India would have put Hitler’s Nazi death-chambers of the 1930s to shame. These massacres happened under all the medieval rulers of India including Akbar. There is NO difference between historical Muslim kings of India and present day terrorist group ISIS (Islamic State) or Pakistan's terrorist wing ISI or Suadi Arabia. Mughal Barbarism and Hindu, Buddhist and Sikh Genocide The Hindu genocide at the hands of Islam lasted more than a thousand years; it is the largest recorded genocide in history with perhaps 80 million people slaughtered by Muslims. The invaders were like a cloud of locusts destroying and devouring everything on their way. Professor K.S.Lal in his book “Growth of Muslim population in India” has said that according to his calculations- the Hindu population declined by 80 million between AD 1000 and AD 1525- probably the biggest ever holocaust in world history. 8 crore Hindus were slaughtered by foreign Muslims in this period. Elliot perceived Islam as a religion of "terror, devastation, murder and rapine" where the conquering Arabs were characterized as "ruthless bigots" and "furious zealots" motivated by "plunder and proselytism". Dr. Koenraad Elst in his article “Was There an Islamic Genocide of Hindus?” states: “There is no official estimate of the total death toll of Hindus at the hands of Islam. A first glance at important testimonies by Muslim chroniclers suggests that, over 13 centuries and a territory as vast as the Subcontinent, Muslim Holy Warriors easily killed more Hindus than the 6 million of the Holocaust. Ferishtha lists several occasions when the Bahmani sultans in central India (1347-1528) killed a hundred thousand Hindus, which they set as a minimum goal whenever they felt like punishing the Hindus; and they were only a third-rank provincial dynasty. The biggest slaughters took place during the raids of Mahmud Ghaznavi (ca. 1000 CE); during the actual conquest of North India by Mohammed Ghori and his lieutenants (1192 ff.); and under the Delhi Sultanate (1206-1526).” Here is what Dr Ambedkar says: "There can be no doubt that the fall of Buddhism in India was due to the invasions of the Musalmans,” writes the author. “Islam came out as the enemy of the ‘But’. The word ‘But,’ as everybody knows, is an Arabic word and means an idol. Not many people, however, know that the derivation of the word ‘But’ is the Arabic corruption of Buddha. Thus the origin of the word indicates that in the Moslem mind idol worship had come to be identified with the Religion of the Buddha. To the Muslims, they were one and the same thing. The mission to break the idols thus became the mission to destroy Buddhism. Islam destroyed Buddhism not only in India but wherever it went. Before Islam came into being Buddhism was the religion of Bactria, Parthia, Afghanistan, Gandhar and Chinese Turkestan, as it was of the whole of Asia…." He continues elsewhere, "Such was the slaughter of the Buddhist priesthood perpetrated by the Islamic invaders. The axe was struck at the very root. For by killing the Buddhist priesthood, Islam killed Buddhism. This was the greatest disaster that befell the religion of the Buddha in India…." Francois Gautier in his book ‘Rewriting Indian History’ (1996) wrote: “The massacres perpetuated by Muslims in India are unparalleled in history, bigger than the Holocaust of the Jews by the Nazis; or the massacre of the Armenians by the Turks; more extensive even than the slaughter of the South American native populations by the invading Spanish and Portuguese.” Writer Fernand Braudel wrote in A History of Civilisations (1995), that Islamic rule in India as a “colonial experiment” was “extremely violent”, and “the Muslims could not rule the country except by systematic terror. Cruelty was the norm – burnings, summary executions, crucifixions or impalements, inventive tortures. Hindu temples were destroyed to make way for mosques. On occasion there were forced conversions. If ever there were an uprising, it was instantly and savagely repressed: houses were burned, the countryside was laid waste, men were slaughtered and women were taken as slaves.” Islamic Depravity and Violence in India Here is what Anjali Sharma says: "The truth is that not many of us are aware of the horrendous cruelty that the Mughals were capable of, a cruelty that was not surprising considering the fact that Babur’s father descended from the Turkish conqueror, Timur the lame or Tamerlane and his mother descended from the warrior ‘born with a clot of blood in his fist’, Genghis Khan. Anyone shocked by the indescribable cruelty of Babur and his heirs must recall that the blood of these two demonic warriors ran in their veins. This strain of cruelty that the Mughals inherited from their Tartar and Mongol ancestors meant that from the emperor down to the lowest faujdar had very little regard for human life." The Mughal dynasty that grew out of the bloody conquest of India was Islamofascist. The successful Mughal invasion of India was the second attempt to conquer the subcontinent for Islam; the first was by Arabs of the Umayyad Caliphate in the eighth century. Typical Islamic rule was imposed by instruction in the Koran, which states clearly with no caveats: Surah 9:29 - "Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Prophet, nor acknowledge the religion of truth even if they are People of the Book, until they pay the jizyah (tax for non-Muslims) with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued." Dr Koenraad Elst also writes in his book “Negation in India”: "The Muslim conquests, down to the 16th century, were for the Hindus a pure struggle of life and death. Entire cities were burnt down and the populations massacred, with hundreds of thousands killed in every campaign, and similar numbers deported as slaves. Every new invader made (often literally) his hills of Hindus skulls. Thus, the conquest of Afghanistan in the year 1000 was followed by the annihilation of the Hindu population; the region is still called the Hindu Kush, i.e. Hindu slaughter." Irfan Husain in his article “Demons from the Past” observes: "While historical events should be judged in the context of their times, it cannot be denied that even in that bloody period of history, no mercy was shown to the Hindus unfortunate enough to be in the path of either the Arab conquerors of Sindh and south Punjab, or the Central Asians who swept in from Afghanistan…The Muslim heroes who figure larger than life in our history books committed some dreadful crimes. Mahmud of Ghazni, Qutb-ud-Din Aibak, Balban, Mohammed bin Qasim, and Sultan Mohammad Tughlak, all have blood-stained hands that the passage of years has not cleansed..Seen through Hindu eyes, the Muslim invasion of their homeland was an unmitigated disaster." 712 CE - Muslims savage Muhammad Bin Qasim At Multan, 6000 custodians of the Sun-temple were made captive and their wealth confiscated. The temple housing the great idol (sanam) was a source of great wealth for the town, receiving pilgrims from across the region. Muhammad bin Qasim left the idol where it was;, but he hung a piece of cow flesh on its neck by way of mockery. The period of Qasim’s rule has been called by U.T. Thakkur “the darkest period in Sind history”, with the records speaking of massive forced conversions, temple destruction, slaughters and genocides; the people of Sindh, described as inherently pacifist due to their Hindu/Buddhist religious inclinations, had to adjust to the conditions of “barbarian inroad”. 1000 CE - Islamic Savagery of Gay Homosexual Muslim Warlord Mahmud of Ghazni (From the accounts of arikh-i-Yamini of Utbi the secretary of Mahmud of Gaznavi) At Thaneshwar: "The blood of the infidels flowed so copiously at Thanesar that the stream was discolored, not withstanding its purity, and people were unable to drink it. The Sultan returned with plunder which is impossible to count. Praise be to Allah for the honor he bestows on Islam and Muslims." At Somnath: "The Muslims paid no regard to the booty till they had satiated themselves with the slaughter of the infidels and worshipers of sun and fire.... The number of infidels killed exceeded 50,000" At Mathura: "The infidels...deserted the fort and tried to cross the foaming river...but many of them were slain, taken or drowned... Nearly fifty thousand men were killed." 1173 - Islamic Savagery of Muhammed of Ghor (from Hasan Nizami's Taj-ul-Maasir) At Kol (Modern Aligarh) : "Those of the horizon who were wise and acute were converted to Islam, but those who stood by their ancestoral faith were slain with the sword" 20,000 prisoners were taken and made slaves. Three bastions were raised as high as heaven with their heads, and their carcases became food for the beasts of prey. At Kalinjar: 50,000 prisoners were taken as slaves At Varnasi or Kasi (Benaras) : Kamil-ut-Tawarikh of Ibn Asir records, "The slaughter of Hindus (at Varanasi) was immense; none were spared except women and children,(who were taken into slavery) and the carnage of men went on until the earth was weary." 1197 - Muslim terriorist king Bakhtiyar Khilji destroys Buddhism The Buddhism of Magadha was finally swept away by the Muhammadan invasion under Bakhtiyar Khilji, In 1197 the capital, Bihar, was seized by a small party of two hundred horsemen, who rushed the postern gate, and sacked the town. The slaughter of the “shaven-headed Brahmans,” as the Muslim chronicler calls the Buddhist monks, was so complete that when the victor searched for someone capable of explaining the contents of the monastic libraries, not a living man could be found who was able to do so. “It was discovered,” it was said, “that the whole fort and city was a place of study.” A similar fate befell the other Buddhist institutions, against which the combined intolerance and rapacity of the invaders was directed. The monasteries were sacked and the monks slain, many of the temples were ruthlessly destroyed or desecrated, and countless idols were broken and trodden under foot. Those monks who escaped the sword flied to Tibet, Nepal and southern India; and Buddhism as a popular religion in Bihar, its last abode in Northern India, was finally destroyed. Then forward Patna passed under Muhammadan rule.” Bakhtiyar Khilji, a National Hero of Terrorist State Bangladesh, is responsible for Islamic Fundamentalism in Bengal. 1298 - Islamic Savagery of Alauddin Khalji’s invasion of Gujarat is described in Kanhadade Prabandha The conquering army burnt villages, devastated the land, plundered people’s wealth, took Brahmins and children and women of all classes captive, flogged with thongs of raw hide, carried a moving prison with it, and converted the prisoners into obsequious Turks." 1300 - Malik Kafur Malik Kafur made a savage attack on Warangal. The booty from Warangal included the famous diamond Koh-i-Noor. During the course of the attack he sacked and plundered many Hindu temples including the famous Hoyasaleshwara temple in Halebidu. According to Muslim historian Ziauddin Barani, Kafur came back to Delhi with 241 tonnes of gold, 20,000 horses and 612 elephants laden with the looted treasure. According the traditional accounts, the Muslim army lead by Malik Kafur entered the Srirangam temple throught the northern gateway of the 3rd enclosure. The resistance of the Brahmins was overcome easily, the treasury and the storehouse were plundered and numerous icons were desecrated and destroyed. 1399 - Mughal Barbarism of Timur Timur was a Turkic conqueror and founder of the Timurid Dynasty. Timur’s Indian campaign (1398 – 1399 AD) was recorded in his memoirs, collectively known as ‘Tuzk-i-Timuri.’ In them, he vividly described probably the greatest gruesome act in the entire history of the world – where 100,000 Hindu prisoners of war in his camp were executed in a very short space of time. Timur after taking advice from his entourage says in his memoirs : “they said that on the great day of battle these 100,000 prisoners could not be left with the baggage, and that it would be entirely opposed to the rules of war to set these idolaters and foes of Islam at liberty. “In fact, no other course remained but that of making them all food for the sword’ Timur thereupon resolved to put them to death. He proclaimed : "throughout the camp that every man who has infidel prisoners was to put them to death, and whoever neglected to do so should himself be executed and his property given to the informer. When this order became known to the ghazis of Islam, they drew their swords and put their prisoners to death. 100,000 infidels, impious idolaters, were on that day slain. Maulana Nasir-ud-din Umar, a counselor and a man of learning, who, in all his life had never killed a sparrow, now, in execution of my order, slew with his sword fifteen idolatrous Hindus, who were his captives". During his campaign in India – Timur describes the scene when his army conquered the Indian city of Delhi : “In a short space of time all the people in the [Delhi] fort were put to the sword, and in the course of one hour the heads of 10,000 infidels were cut off. The sword of Islam was washed in the blood of the infidels, and all the goods and effects, the treasure and the grain which for many a long year had been stored in the fort became the spoil of my soldiers. “They set fire to the houses and reduced them to ashes, and they razed the buildings and the fort to the ground….All these infidel Hindus were slain, their women and children, and their property and goods became the spoil of the victors. I proclaimed throughout the camp that every man who had infidel prisoners should put them to death, and whoever neglected to do so should himself be executed and his property given to the informer. When this order became known to the ghazis of Islam, they drew their swords and put their prisoners to death.” 1500 - Mughal Barbarism of Sikander Lodhi Bodhan – a Hindu renunciate (sadhu), was burnt alive for saying the following: Islam and Hindu Dharma are both equally acceptable to God if followed with sincerity. Sikander Lodhi frequently razed temples to the ground and erected mosques in their place, as evidenced by his behaviour at Mandrail, Utgir, and Narwar. At Mathura he prevented Hindus from bathing in their sacred ghats or having themselves shaved. The stones of broken Hindu idols were given away to butchers to be used as weights. 1510 - Mughal Barbarism of Homosexual Islamist Babur Babur was a barbaric killer, looter, rapist, drunkard, homosexual/ impotent and drug-addict. We shall quote from Baburnama most of which is about killing and Babur's wine parties. He writes that his gang beheaded the innocent Afghans who came to him for truce, and then created a pillar from these heads. The same feat was repeated in Hangu where 200 Afghan heads were killed to create a pillar. Because people of Bajaur did not believe in Islam, more than 3000 people were murdered and their wives and children were taken as captives. Several heads of captured people were sent to Kabutl, Balkh and other places to spread news of victory. A tower of cut heads was setup on ground to celebrate victory. Babur fathered several children from several women in his brothel. His first wife promised to adopt all these illegitimate children, whenever they are born in future, because several children born to her could not live. Babur's Own Words on Killing Hindus: “For the sake of Islam I became a wanderer, I battled infidels and Hindus, I am determined to become a martyr. Thank God I became a Killer of Non-Muslims! From Baburnama, the Memoires of Babur Himself: In AH 934 (2538 C.E.) I attacked Chanderi and by the grace of Allah captured it in a few hours. We got the infidels slaughtered and the place which had be Daru'l-Harb (nation of non-muslim) for years was made into a Daru'l-Islam (muslim nation). Guru Nanak on Babur's atrocities: Source:Rag Asa Guru Nanak Dev witnessed first hand the atrocities Babur committed on Hindus and recorded them in his poems. He says: Having attacked Khuraasaan, Babar terrified Hindustan. The Creator Himself does not take the blame, but has sent the Mugal as the messenger of death. There was so much slaughter that the people screamed. Didn't You feel compassion, Lord? pg (360) On the condition of Hindu women in Babur's monster rule: Those heads adorned with braided hair, with their parts painted with vermillion - those heads were shaved with scissors, and their throats were choked with dust.They lived in palatial mansions, but now, they cannot even sit near the palaces.... ropes were put around their necks, and their strings of pearls were broken. Their wealth and youthful beauty, which gave them so much pleasure, have now become their enemies. The order was given to the soldiers, who dishonored them, and carried them away. If it is pleasing to God's Will, He bestows greatness; if is pleases His Will, He bestows punishment pg(417-18) On the nature of Mughal rule under Babur: First, the tree puts down its roots, and then it spreads out its shade above. The kings are tigers, and their officials are dogs; they go out and awaken the sleeping people to harass them. The public servants inflict wounds with their nails. The dogs lick up the blood that is spilled. Source:Rag Malar, (pg.1288) 1568 - Mughal Barbarism of Akbar Akbar killed an unconscious Hemu (a Hindu) to become a ‘Ghazi’ at the second battle of Panipat. Akbar had a victory tower erected with the heads of captured/ surrendered army of Hemu after the second battle of Panipat. Peter Mundy, an Englishman travelling Mughal empire some 75 years later (during Jahangir and Shah Jahan’s rein), found such towers were still being built. Akbar ordered killing of 30,000 unarmed captive Hindus peasants in February 1568. Akbar had more than 300 wives. The actual number of women in the harem was nearer to 5,000. Many of these were older women, but there were also young servant girls, or Amazons of Russia or Abyssinia as armed guards, all with the status only of slaves. 1605 - Brutal Isamist savage terrorist Mughal Jahangir Anjali Sharma says: "Jahangir penned his memoirs called Tuzk-e-Jahangiri, also known as Jahangirnama in which he relates how two drum-beaters and a guide mistakenly came into the clearing when he had proceeded to take aim at a nilgai (blue-bull antelope). The animal fled and the furious Jahangir had the guide executed and the two hapless drum-beaters were hamstrung, in other words their tendons behind their knees were sliced off, which left them crippled for life." Ameya Vombathekre, says: "Once a chamberlain broke one of his previous Chinese porcelain dishes. Realising what could be the outcome the chamberlain immediately sent of the servants to China to find a similar replacement. Two years passed and the servant did not return. But good news was Jahangir had also not asked for the dished. One day Jahangir ordered the chamberlain to bring the dish as he wished to see it. Shivering chamberlain informed him that the dish was broken, this made the Emperor burst out in rage. He called for the guards and ordered them to lash the poor man a hundred times and twenty times with a corded whip. He watched on as the chamberlain suffered in pain. After having undergone his punishment, he was again beaten up with cudgels by orders of the Emperor. At least twenty men beat the poor man until he was thought to be dead. Then he dragged out by the heels and thrown into prison." 1630 - Shah Jahan's unbelivable savagery and killing of Portugese Christain Missionaries Anjali Sharma says: "Since the 16th century, Portuguese Christians had been steadily migrating to Hooghly, a trading settlement coast on the northeast of India, near modern Calcutta. Although these immigrants were a largely unscrupulous lot, indulging in piracy and slave trade, the punishment scarcely fit the crime when Shah Jahan, goaded by his queen, ordered the whole colony to be razed to the ground. His soldiers carried out their emperor’s orders with brutal efficiency, decimating the Portuguese fleet and all its men along with a boatload of women and children who were swallowed up by the black waters while their Jesuit leader, Father Frahlo held a crucifix aloft. That day, 4,000 prisoners were made to march from Hooghly to Agra, a distance of 1,200 miles. The survivors were brutally disposed of — the priests were thrown beneath elephants and the rest were sold as slaves." 1690 - Islamic savagery of Muslim Terrorist King Aurangzeb Aurangzeb considered himself "The Scourge Of The Kafirs" (non-believers) and closed Hindu schools and libraries. In his lifetime he destroyed more than 10,000 Hindu, Buddhist and Jam temples and often erected mosques in their stead.3 In 1669 in Agra he had hacked off the limbs of the recalcitrant Hindu King Gokla and in 1672 several thousand revolting Hindus were slaughtered in Mewat. From: Maasi-i-Alamgiri: He issued general order to destroy all centers of Hindu learnings including Varnasi and destroyed the temple at Mathura and renamed it as Islamabad In Khandela (rajastan) he killed 300 Hindus in one day for they resisted the destruction of their temple. In Udaipur all Hindus of the town were killed as they vowed to defend the temple of Udaipur from destruction -- 172 temples were destroyed in Udaipur. 66 temples were pulled down in Amber. All Hindu clerks were dismissed from the office of the Imperial empire. In Pandhpur , Maharashtra, the Emperor ordered and executed the destruction of temple and butchering of cows within the temple. Aurangazeb also tortured to death the disciples of Guru Tegh bahadur before his death and also killed Guru. Guru Tegh Bahadur - the pride of Hindustan was martyred for he spoke for the persecuted Hindus of Hindustan. Aurangazeb also killed Guru Gobind singh's two children aged less than ten by walling them alive for not accepting the choice of Islam. In Punjab Muslim governors killed hundreds of Sikh children and made Sikh women eat the flesh of their own killed children. Banda Bahadur another great Sikh martyr before being torturd to death was also made to eat the flesh of his own children killed before his eyes. Any Muslim bringing the head of a dead Sikh was also awarded money. 1757 - Islamic Savage Ahmad Shah Abdali The Afghan ruler Ahmad Shah Abdali attacked India in 1757 AD and made his way to the holy Hindu city of Mathura,the birthplace of Krishna. The atrocities that followed are recorded in the contemporary chronicle called : ‘Tarikh-I-Alamgiri’ : "Abdali’s soldiers would be paid 5 Rupees (a sizeable amount at the time) for every enemy head brought in. Every horseman had loaded up all his horses with the plundered property, and atop of it rode the girl-captives and the slaves. The severed heads were tied up in rugs like bundles of grain and placed on the heads of the captives…Then the heads were stuck upon lances and taken to the gate of the chief minister for payment. "It was an extraordinary display! Daily did this manner of slaughter and plundering proceed. And at night the shrieks of the women captives who were being raped, deafened the ears of the people… All those heads that had been cut off were built into pillars, and the captive men upon whose heads those bloody bundles had been brought in, were made to grind corn, and then their heads too were cut off. These things went on all the way to the city of Agra, nor was any part of the country spared. "
