Synopsis about India
from 'The Legacy of Jihad'
|by Gaurang Bhatt, MD|
While the caste system of India is a social evil, still pervasive and with dire consequences, it pales to insignificance, when compared to the sanction of slavery by Christianity till the nineteenth century and Islam till the twentieth century. Both these religions institutionalized and sanctioned slavery. Islam with its Jihad and Christianity with its Crusades are responsible for drenching the pages of history with blood and wanton cruelty. The spread of Hinduism and Buddhism in contrast are peaceful and civilized. What follows are some historical facts that the lying history textbooks of the British era and the present leftists and Hindutva fanatics skip and ignore, to the detriment of national unity, knowledge of truth and understanding of past mistakes.
The book is edited by Andrew G. Bostom, MD and the chapters on India are by Professor K. Lal.
In 711 CE, Muhammad Bin Kasim was sent by the Caliph to attack Sind. Prior attempts had failed. He captured the fort of Rawar and killed the remaining defenders, put to the sword thousands of others and captured nearly thirty thousand, who were enslaved. There is an apocryphal story of the two Hindu princesses who were sent to the Caliph's harem. They allegedly used the subterfuge that they could not dishonor the Caliph, as they had been ravished previously by Kasim. Muhammad Bin Kasim was recalled by the Caliph for this insult sowed into a sack and assassinated by the monarch. Over time Sind remained under Arab Muslim rule which was extended to Multan with the same slaughter, plunder, ravishing and enslavement.
Each of his raids netted a million or more gold dinars and tens of thousands of converts and slaves. At one time he returned to Ghazni with over two hundred thousand slaves and one of his courtiers remarked that the streets of Ghazni look like India because of the large Indian slave community.
The persistence of such rabid psycho-pathology is one of the causes of current terrorism. Islam was a religion spread by the sword unlike any others, and the prophet was as much a businessman and a warrior as anything else. The first four Caliphs of Islam were all assassinated. Succession was frequently by assassination or fratricide in the Delhi and Moghul Sultanate, the Turkish Sultanate, Central Asian Khanates and the Safavid dynasty of Iran. Murder, rape, forced conversion and slavery followed the Islamic conquests of Spain, the Balkans and parts of Romania. In fact a huge number of Indians moved west and north into the Balkans around 1100 CE to avoid the invading Turks and Afghans and today make up the Gypsies (Roma) in Europe. They speak a language similar to Punjabi or Hindi and are now facing discrimination by the Europeans. Half a million were killed by the Nazis.
These historical facts are pushed under the rug in Indian history books. Our children are not taught the disastrous results of the disunity of the Indian kings, their lack of foresight and the indifference of the oppressed populace to who rules, because it never makes their life better. To our everlasting shame, it has not changed even at present, because the present political parties are all filled with corrupt crooks with a lust for power and devoid of decency or historical knowledge.
