This sounds more like revision because Qasim took Sindh and he was not at the outskirts as you put it. Also Ghor, Delhi Sultanate, Mughal and the 5 deccan sultanates they all came into India and reign approx around 1000 years over the subcontinent and still in the sub-continent today.Listen , comrade Iberian Hispanic .
They arrived near sindh , the claipahtes the same Abbasid ummayad raashidun who invaded spain , remember tariq bin ziyaad.
We faced muhmmad bin qasim , difference is he ran away later while ziyaad didn't from Spain.
The Arabs never entered past sindh , meaning that they were always in outskirts.
The ghor came , delhi sultanate period started , reached zenith during muhmmad bin tugalaq , rajputs by the end of 14th century hammering their capital many times , less said about vijaya nagar the better.
Then when mugal came , they were again haunted from 1650s till 1709 when the tyrant aurangzeb died.
They are still in the subcontienet with Pakistan and Bangladesh.. Frankly speaking there is more likely hood that they regain the subcontinent then the opposite to occur just from a military point of view. They have many other potential backup to come to their aid or back them up geolocation wise look at central Asia and even it has link to the larger Muslim world in the geographical sense but the question is can anyone come to India's aid the answer is no because it is located behind them and far away from the western belt. Which means India is alone but Pakistan is never alone and could get infinite amount of assistance from a stragetic point of view Pakistan has a stronger standing in the region compared to India and if I had to put my money on anyone at gun-point I would put my money on PK and Bangladesh outlasting India but I want India to outlast them but the chellenge is an uphill battle for India also considering Chian is on their side.
What needs to happen is stragetic shift and India needs to go new direction. Which is limit hostilites in the region and wait for the US to ally with them in order to finish of China which will likely be the US approach and it wants to recruit them fight china and help her against China..
It may sound weird but the US wants to team up with them in order to confront Russia and China while getting India on that page but India could ruin the plan because if India is made at the center they could exit giving China and Russia all the power and weakening the US
