Islam’s jihad against India 16th -21st century: part K in Islam’s genocidal slavery:

E-mail Print PDF

This final article on India (see parts I, J) shows that Islamic violence and hatred of others continues right into the 21st century.  It also created  those Islamic paradises, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Bangladesh, and Kashmir.  Sufis were active participants and instigators of violent jihad.   May the non-Muslims of India continue to resist the Islamic jihad against them.

Mughal rule (1527-1707)
The Mughals/Moguls brought new weapons but had the same old jihad.  There was no improvement in the position of  Hindus (with the exception of  apostate Akbar who removed some of the evils forced on Hindus).  Religious bigotry continued as did Islamic law imposing disabilities, indignities and an inferior social, political and legal status on Hindus and other non-Muslims (Dhimmitude).  Mughals and other Muslim rulers showed as much zeal as their predecessors for the destruction of idolaters and polytheists (Bostom p 85)

1) Descendent of Amir Timur, Jahiruddin Shah Babur, defeated Sikandar Lodi and established Mughal rule.  He describes his campaign against the Hindus as jihad, citing koranic text (Sookdheo p 243)  .In Bajaur (Pakistan’s NW Province today) he describes a general massacre of the enemies of Islam and made a tower of heads.  In his holy war he came to Agra, battling Rana Sanga (Sangram Sinh- 1527) where the secret inspiration from a “infallible voice”  spurred him on.  “These are the unbelievers, the wicked.”  At Agra “mounds were made of the bodies of the slain, pillars of their heads.”  (‘Barburnama’,Babur’s memoirs, Bostom p 651-3) He slaughtered and enslaved. 

In 1528 he attacked the people of Kanauj.  More heads were piled up at Chanderi.  (Lal [b] p 459)
Regarding Hindu captives  his memoirs state “Those who were brought in alive (having surrendered) were ordered beheaded, after which a tower of skulls was erected in the camp” (Sookdheo p 264)

The difference between jihad and a war against another Muslim was clearly displayed in Babur’s memoirs of 2 wars-one against Muslim Ibrahim Lodi, the other against Hindu Rana Sanga (1527).  Lodi was praised and given a decent burial.   Rana Sanga (‘Hindus’) received constant abuse and was on a path to hell, all backed by koranic quotes.  Towers of heads are only made in the case of Hindus/non-Muslims (Lal [b] 458-9)

 Hindu temples were destroyed including the temple at Ayodha and a mosque built in its place.  Today’s Hindus desire to return the temple!!   Muslims cry sacrilege but thousands of Hindu temples were desecrated by Muslims over centuries! (Sookdheo p 262)

Following Babur’s death in 1530, leadership fights broke out.  Some today describe the appalling Babur as a model of Muslim tolerance ---well, given the monumental intolerance of Islam this doesn’t mean much anyway, and is clearly not supported by his attitudes and practices revealed in his own memoirs.

2) Akbar the great  (r1556-1605).   Babur’s grandson:
He is regarded as religiously ‘tolerant’ but in reality he was an apostate from Islam who tried to develop his own ‘composite’ religion called Din-i-Ilahi, ‘religion of god.’(Khan p 152) and adopted the festivals of non-Muslims (Trifkovic p 112).  He employed non-Muslims in administration and opened madrasses to them—incorporating Sanskrit and the study of Hindu religious text and tried to dispense with Arabic while pushing his own new religion. (Khan p 248).   His great grandson Dara Sikoh tried to reinvigorate the synthesis of Islam, Hinduism and Buddhism –but was put to death by the other grandson, fanatical Sunni Muslim Aurangzeb (Khan p 153).
Illiterate Akbar made no attempt, outside the madrassa, to promote schools, universities, science, philosophy –despite great things happening in Europe and brought to his court.(Khan p 248-9)

‘Apostate’ Akbar abolished the Jizya in 1564 but the extortion of other taxes remained eg kharaj tax.   The Kharaja tax was set at 1/3 but in reality came to 2/3rds the agricultural produce in Kashmir.(Khan p 108)

Akbar had Hindus in his court but he clearly hated Hinduism and continued many of the same practices and attitudes of devout Muslims.   Akbar rewarded one of his imams with gold coins for his jihadi zeal against Rana Pratap in 1576.  He wanted “the privilege of joining the campaign to soak his Islamic beard in Hindu infidel blood.”  Chroniclers note that wars were still fought in the religious spirit of jihad! (Lal [b] p 459-460)

Initially he made Hindus wear coloured patches on their sleeves to distinguish them from Muslims (sharia law for dhimmis.  The Taliban tried to impose this on the few remaining Hindus in Afghanistan – once Buddhist and Hindu!!).    Forced conversion to Islam is reported (Sookdheo p 243, 265)  Akbar’s General Abdulla Khan Uzbeg (ruled Malwa for 2 years) enslaved and converted some 500,000 (Khan p 132).
Akbar declared independence from foreign Islamic overlordship but ‘gifts’ still went to Islam’s holy cities of Mecca and Medina and others. (Khan p 163).

Destruction of temples, slavery, slaughter and plunder continued:  “His majesty’s mind was always intent upon clearing the land of Hindustan from the troubles and disturbances created by infidels and evil men”  (Sookdheo p 264). 

 The conquest of Hindu territories continued and most parts of India came under his control.  His generals (some Hindu converts) ravaged with fire and sword and plundered eg Asaf Khan took Rampur;  Husain Khuli Khan attacked Udipur  (the capital of the rana and Khan’s ancestors) destroying, enslaving, slaughtering and burning.  Hindu peasants and Rajputs fought together against Akbar but, following a long siege, Chittor was taken (1568).  Akbar gave the order for a general massacre (30,000 slain) while those who escaped the sword were imprisoned and their property taken until ALL infidels were removed.  Akbar then entered and remained for 3 days (Sook p 264-5, Khan p 88, 113, Trifkovic p 112, part I).  Following the death of Rajput soldiers , their women committed Jauhar rather than suffer under the Muslims (Khan p 200)

The Islamic practice of slaves as booty continued despite Akbar’s supposed attempt to halt mass slavery during battle.  Chroniclers report that villages were freely attacked without reason and people enslaved.  Children were taken and males castrated, particularly in Bengal (Khan p 283)   

Akbar had 5,000 females (slaves) in his harem (Khan p 102)

When Akbar allowed a free choice in religion, many forced converts returned to Hinduism.  Hindu men (eg in Bhadauri and Bhimar)  married Muslim women who often also converted to Hinduism (Khan p 96).  Emperor Shah Jahan (1628-58-Akbar’s grandson) returning from Kashmir declared such ‘promiscuous’ marriages illegal and separated the couples.  

The fanatic Sufi master Shaykh (sheik) Ahmad Sirhindi (1564-1624) initiated a sunni revival and revolted against Akbar and Jahangir (weak Muslims).  He wanted full sharia in law, government and society and argued that sharia could be fostered through the sword.  No accommodation with Hindus who were Kafir was possible.  He wrote:

“kufr and Islam opposed to each other.  The progress of one is possible only at the expense of the others and co-existence between these two contradictory faiths is unthinkable.  The honour of Islam lies in insulting the kufr (unbelief) and kafir (unbelievers).  One who respects the kafirs dishonours the Muslims...They should be kept at an arms length like dogs...The real purpose of levying the jizya on them is to humiliate them to such an extent that, on account of fear of jizya,  they may not be able to dress well and to live in grandeur.   They should constantly remain terrified and trembling.   It is intended to hold them under contempt and to uphold the honour and might of Islam”
(Sookdheo p 82, Khan p 108)

Under Sirhindi’s influence, Emperor Aurangzeb rescinded concessions made to Hindus by predecessors, reinstituted classic jizya tax and  renewed jihad in India.  Sirhindi also hated shia and their influence at  the Mughal court.  –the hatred of shia continues in Pakistan today. (Sookdheo p 82)

Sufi saint Shah Walliullah (d. 1762) and other leading Islamic scholars and Sufi masters held similar views through the Islamic rule of India. (Khan p 108)

-3) Jahangir (1605-27) –Akbar’s son: orthodoxy and Islamization gradually revived.
Despite being regarded as liberal and kind-hearted (compared to a fully practising Muslim!) chroniclers and Jahangir’s own memoirs reveal the ‘jihadi’ violence and persecution.  In reality,  “he devoted all his exertions to the promulgation of the Muhammadan religion”....his “whole efforts were always directed to the extinguishing of the fire of Paganism.”(Khan p 104)  Jahangir destroyed Hindu temples (historian in Sookdheo p 235)

 Jahangir’s memoirs testify that Bengali children were castrated and handed to governors as slaves in place of revenue (cited in Khan p 283).  Said Khan Chaghati, one of Jahangir’s nobles boasted of having 1,200  eunuch slaves alone (ibid).

As a result of ongoing persecution, hundreds of thousands (millions) of Hindus took up refuge and rebellion in jungles across India.  In 1619-20,  ‘Kind-hearted’ Jahangir hunted down 200,000 and sold them in Iran. (Khan p 94).  He annually went on such ‘hunts’ (Khan p 251).  In Jahangir’s own memoirs he notes the unending rebellion and that a period of ‘complete repose’ never existed (Khan p 98-99).
Commentators note that when the Jains in Gujarat built splendid temples attracting followers
“emperor Jahangir ordered them to be banished from the country and their temples to be demolished.   Their idols were thrown down on the uppermost step of the mosque, so that it might be trodden upon” (by Muslim worshippers)(cited in Khan p 104)

4) Shah Jahan (1628-58)-Akbar’s grandson: A more orthodox Muslim who initiated 48 military campaigns against non-Muslims in 30 years (and killed all his male relations though one escaped to Persia!).  He had 5,000 concubines but indulged in incestuous sex with daughters Chamani and Jahanara.  He destroyed Hindu temples and Christian churches (eg Agra,  Lahore).  At Agra, 4,000 captives had to choose Islam or death –young females went to harems.  After a siege at Hugh, a Portuguese enclave near Calcutta, he had the 10,000 inhabitants “blown up with powder, drowned in water, or burnt by fire” (Trifkovic p 112).  He forced conversions on pain of death (Sookdheo p 243). 

The condition of peasants was desperate. Tax collectors took (enslaved) peasants, their wives and children to sell to pay the tax.  This was also noted by a French physician in Aurangzeb’s rule (1658-1707) (Khan p 284).  Around 1629 in Gujarat, peasants had to surrender 75% of their produce! (Khan p 108).  But Shah Jahan built the massively expensive Taj Mahal!

5) Aurangzeb (Akbar’s great grandson, (r1658-1707)- a brutal, devout Muslim.  He practised jihad to conquer all of India.  Islamization, slavery and forced conversion were a primary focus of state policy (Khan p 104).   Aurangzeb stressed in his Fatawa-i-Alamgiri that he only surrendered forts when destruction stared him in the face ie kill but if you can’t kill or subjugate, buy ‘peace’ until you can (sharia) (Lal [b] p 460). 

In 1666, Aurangzeb decreed the expulsion of Hindus from duties in the Royal court and provinces and their replacement by Muslims.(Khan p 110).   People converted  to save their livelihoods.  Hindu landlords/state rulers (Zimindari) faced prison or death if they didn’t convert eg Devi Chand of Manoharpur; Ratan singh of Rampura in Malwa (Khan p 110)

Aurangzeb reinstated the jizya in 1679 (other taxes still operated) though Hindus revolted against paying.  Jizya payment had to be made in the humiliating way decreed by Islam (Khan p 107).  Revolts took place across the kingdom.  A multitude of Hindus flocked to Delhi to sit down and protest outside the royal palace but Aurangzeb set his elephants and horses on them  “many fell trodden to death under the feet of the elephants and horses”   and they submitted (Khan p 96)

Aurangzeb applied the Dhimmi rules from the Pact of Omar and the sharia, including banning non-Muslims from carrying weapons –but the powerful Rajputs had to be ‘exempted’ and Marathas also kept theirs (Khan p 98). In a campaign against the Rajputs, his generals     “employed themselves in laying waste to the country, destroying temples and buildings, cutting down fruit trees, and making prisoners of the women and children of the infidels ..”  (Sookdheo p 265 –complies with jihad laws in Reliance of the Traveller:). 

The Brahamans were accused of teaching wicked sciences (Muslims came to learn )–so schools and temples were destroyed and all teaching was to stop.  200 temples (Hindu, Jain, Sikh..) were destroyed in 1679 alone-how many in his 50 year reign? Estimates claim 5,000.  Defenders of temples were slaughtered.  Sikh guru Tegh Bahadur Singh and 2 associates were killed for objecting to the forced conversion of Kashmiri Hindus. Hindus couldn’t wear any marks of honour or ride elephants etc. (Khan p 198-9).  

During Aurangzeb’s reign, to induce non-Muslims to convert to Islam—jizya tax would be removed,  crimes and debts could be annulled for converts; and some were  rewarded with position and cash;  others converted on pain of death eg the inhabitants of  the North-West Frontier Province were forced to convert at the point of a bayonet.  Hindus in Surat were forcibly converted (Sookdheo p 243, Khan p 109-110). False charges were also used to force conversion –particularly if the Hindu person was owed money (Khan p 110)

A European courtier, Niccolao Manucci, living  in India noted
“many Hindus, unable to pay (taxes) turned Muhammadan to obtain relief from the insults of collectors”. Englishman observer, Thomas Roll wrote that jizya enriched the treasury and forced the poor into Islam (Khan p 109-110)  The Gazette of North-West Provinces states—
“Most Muslim cultivars assign the date of their conversion to the reign of Aurangzeb and represent it as the result of sometimes persecution and sometimes as made to enable them to retain their rights when unable to pay revenue.” (Khan p 109)

Many resisted and fought, including lower caste Hindus eg Marathas and  Jat peasants from the north (Khan 114)

The behaviour of Hindu Marathas vs Muslims:
Shivaji, a low caste Hindu (d 1680) founded the Maratha Kingdom (northern India), defying Aurangzeb. His kingdom expanded into Mughal territory in the south.  Aurangzeb told his generals to enter Maratha territory for “wasting the villages, slaying the people without pity and plundering them to the extreme” (recorded by Qabil Khan, cited in Khan p 213) In contrast, Shavaji’s critic, Khafi Khan, still recorded admiration for Shavaji’s ideals as women, mosques and the Koran were not to be harmed despite the fact that Muslims took Hindu women in tens of thousands using many for sex-slavery.  Muslims destroyed temples but Shavaji didn’t defile mosques and even financially aided some Sufis.  He brought peace and order, protected women’s honour and allowed freedom of religion and employment without discrimination.  Yes he carried out raids-some essential for food, others to extend Hindu rule.   Despite this, his behaviour is infinitely more civilised than that displayed under Islamic rule (Khan  p 214-215). 

1707-1947.   The British plus ongoing Islamic jihad violence from inside and outside India
After Aurangzeb’s death, Islamic power waned. The British stepped in, becoming de facto masters of the Muslim state.
Islam controlled most of India except the south.  The ruling elite had mainly Turkic, Afghan, and Iranian origin but later a few Hindus mainly Rajputs and Marathas were included. This 'aristocracy' was composed of ‘lineage groups’ (various ethnic and linguistic communities) serving as ‘clients’ of the emperor and ensuring the obedience of their supporters (hence stabilising the country while Muslim rule continued).

Many ‘reformers’ including Sufi’s called for a return to pure Islam, including violent jihad and sharia.
British rule began around 1757  when British mercenaries of the east India company defeated Nawab Siraj-ud-daulah of Bengal  in the Battle of Plassey, then the last independent Muslim ruler Tipu sultan of Mysore was defeated in 1799 and most parts came under de facto British control with the incorporation of the Punjab in 1850, deposing the last emperor in 1858 (Sookdheo p 234-235).  British mercenaries kept Muslim rulers as puppet heads of state until the Sepoy Mutiny in 1857 where Muhammad Shah Jaffar, who declared himself emperor, wasn’t fighting for India’s independence but for a return to Islamic feudalism and control!  Some Hindus in the British army deserted under enticements from Muslims but most did not......after all the British had stopped the jizya, and slavery of non-Muslims and they attempted to remove social ills, and enforce the British rule of law where all are regarded as equal.  The East India company passed the  Indian slavery Act V banning slavery in 1843—at the time slavery existed in Bengal, Madras, Bombay  (Khan p 335)

Direct British rule followed 1857.   Indian Muslims then pledged their support for the Ottoman sultan, but, the weakened Ottomans condemned the ‘mutineer’s atrocities’ and supported the British who had supported them in their ‘jihad’ of the Crimean war.   British rule ended in 1947. (Khan p 192)   Yes they exploited and taxed but they were a massive improvement on Islam!

Nehru stated that under the British they (Hindus) were “definitely freer, less molested, more respectable, and even somewhat privileged under the British Raj ..” (Khan p 220) 

Despite the presence of the British, Muslims eg Sufis, appealed for outside help and Indian Muslims continued their jihad.

The Mughal Furrukhsiyar (1713-1719)
:  He besieged then overtook the Sikh fortress of  Gurdaspur in Punjab.
“3000-4000 were put to the sword, and he filled that extensive plain with blood as if it had been a dish.  Their heads were stuffed with hay and stuck upon spears.   Those who escaped the sword were sent in collars and chains to the emperor.... As to the rest of the prisoners, it was ordered that  200-300 of the wretches should be put to death everyday before the Kotwals office and in the streets of the bazaar...”   The Sikh leader had to kill his son or have him killed in his presence! (historian Kufi Khan in Sookdheo p 265)

Nadir Shah Iran:   In 1738, Nadir Shah of Iran invaded India eg Delhi, slaughtering 200,000, committing atrocities and plunder, then returned home with thousands of slaves, including a few thousand beautiful girls and  immense treasure-of  furniture, art, jewels, gold, horses.  The countryside was razed leaving no food. (Khan p 104, p 199)

Shah Wali Allah of Delhi (1702-1762) : He began a ‘reform movement’ to reapply sharia and return to pristine Islam as in its pure sources.   Jihad, fighting in allah’s way, was the perfect implementation of sharia.  Leaders of non-Muslim communities that failed to accept Islam should be killed and followers forcibly converted to Islam.

“It has become clear in my mind that the kingdom of heaven has predestined that kafirs should be reduced to a state of humiliation and treated with utter contempt....Oh kings!  Mala a’la urges you to draw swords and not to put them back in their sheaths again until allah has separated Muslims from polytheists and the rebellious kafirs and the sinners are made absolutely feeble and helpless....we beseech you (Durrani) in the name of the prophet to fight a jihad against the infidels of this region.  This would entitle you to great rewards before god the most high and your name would be included in the list of those who fought jihad for his sake.   As far as worldly gains are concerned, incalculable booty would fall into the hands of the Islamic ghazis and the Muslims would be liberated from their bonds....jihad should be their first priority, thereby ensuring the security of every Muslim...(Sookdheo p 83).

Ahmad Shah Abdali (Durrani) of Afghanistan: He  invaded 3 times (1757, 1760, 1761) in response to such requests and aimed to destroy Maratha resistance.  He slaughtered, plundered and enslaved thousands. His attack on Gokul was repulsed by martial monks –naked, ash-smeared warriors. (Bostom p 655)

An eyewitness, Munshi Sadasukh Dehlawi wrote “I have myself seen the depredations of the Afghans around Delhi and Mattra.  God defend us from them!   It makes the very hair of the body stand on end to think of them. 200,000 men were destroyed in these massacres......such atrocities, forsooth, were perpetrated in compliance with their religion and law!  What cared they for the religion, the law, the honour and reputation of the innocent sufferers?  It was enough for such bigots that the splendour accrued by their deeds to the faith of Muhammad and Ali. (cited in Bostom p 655)

Another eyewitness account from Luni near Delhi,(1760) shows the Taqiyya (lying) of Muslims.  Despite promised security for locals, at night  “the outrages began.. .fires.. slaughter and plunder breaking down doors, tying up those they found inside, and in many cases burning them alive or cutting off their head.  Everywhere was bloodshed and destruction, and for 3 days and 3 nights this savagery continued.   ....Men’s wives and children were made captive, and the killing and looting went on unchecked.  The Afghans humiliated and abused their victims and practiced all kinds of atrocities on them....some would strip their victims even of their underclothing....they ...turned their attention to the old (city) where they put countless people to the sword.   For 7 or 8 days the tumult raged.   Nobody was left with clothes ...or with enough food....the cry of the opposed rose to heaven, but the king (Abdali) who considered himself a pillar of the true religion was quite unmoved.”  (cited in Bostom p 655-6)

In the third battle of the Panipat in 1761, the victorious Ahmad Shah Abdali deprived prisoners of food and drink,   paraded them in long lines, then beheaded  them.   Surviving women and children (22,000) were enslaved (Khan p 104, 264, 284, Bostom p 657).  A writer details a rough total of 28,000 corpses piled up in 31 heaps plus the dead bodies of those who fled (3/4 non-combatants) littering roads and more dead from the battle or the siege in the ditch around the Maratha camp.  Thousands of non-combatants were slaughtered, others died of disease and famine during the long siege. (Bostom p 656). 

The eyewitness, Kashiraj Pandit notes “Every Durrani soldier brought away a hundred or two of prisoners and slew them in the outskirts of their camp, crying out "When I started from our country, my mother, father, sister and wife told me to slay so many kafirs for their sake AFTER we had gained the victory in this holy war, so that the religious merit of this act [of infidel slaying] might accrue to them."   In this way thousands of soldiers and other persons were massacred.  In the Shah’s camp.... every tent had a heap of severed heads before it. ”  (cited in Bostom p 657)   Masses of  livestock, cash and jewelry was taken as usual.
The last independent Muslim ruler Tipu Sultan (1750-1799):  Supposedly a nationalist hero for standing up to the British, he killed 10,000 Hindus and Christians and enslaved 7000 in his wars against Travancore.  The enslaved were forced into Islam.   A Muslim chronicler notes 70,000 Coorgis were forced into Islam. (Khan p 200)
Sayyid Ahmad Barelwi in British India (1786-1831):  This Sufi reformer aimed to purify Indian Islam and Sufism developing a reform movement in 1818.  He is regarded as a mujaddid (even a mahdi).   He declared India a land of unbelief, ‘house of war’, encouraging migration to Northern India and preparation for jihad.  In 1826 he launched a jihad against the Sikh kingdom of Ranjit Singh in Punjab.  He died in battle against the Sikha at Balakot in 1831.   Jihad continued with the Muslim–led Great Mutiny of 1857 and continues today.   Due to the ‘Hijra doctrine, ’ post WW1, thousands of Punjabi Muslims emigrated to Afghanistan claiming it’s un-Islamic to live under British rule in dar al-Harb (Sookdheo  p 113-4  --Oh if only they’d ALL move to Islamic countries so our children can be safe and free!!!)

Sufis joined the pan-Islamic cause such as Maulana Ubaidullah Sindhi’s ‘Army of god’ which set up in 1915 in Afghanistan with intention of invading India against British rule (Sookdheo p194).

Southern India:  The Moplah ‘rebellion’ in the Malabar district 1921 (SW coast of India):  Moplahs are Muslims of Arab and Hindu descent (traders, Sufis). Over the last 100 years, 51 outbreaks (or more) of Moplah fanaticism have been recorded (Bostom p 658) thanks to their tradition of holy war and martyrdom.   The judges at a special tribunal noted the inflammatory teachings ie “that paradise was gained by killing kafirs”   and that that they would go a killing spree against Hindus.  No ‘grievance’ was necessary.  They also noted that the Hindu ‘coolies’ were far worse off than their Muslim employers! (Bostom p 658)  (didn’t the judges know that simply being non-Muslims is sufficient reason for Muslims to attack?)

“The Hindu population fell easy prey to their  (Moplah)  rage and the atrocities committed defy description......a memorial submitted by the women of Malabar to Her Excellency the Countess of Reading mentions such crimes as wells filled with mutilated bodies, pregnant women cut to pieces, children torn from mother’s arms and killed, husbands and fathers tortured, flayed and burnt alive before the eyes of their wives and daughters; women forcibly carried off and outraged; homes destroyed; temples desecrated....not less than 100 Hindu temples  were destroyed or desecrated...; cattle slaughtered in temples and their entrails placed around the necks of the idols in place of garlands of flowers; and wholesale looting.  No fiendish act seems to have been too vile for them to perpetrate.....There were during the rebellion, many cases of forced conversion from Hinduism to Mohammaedanism”  (published reports in Bostom p 658-9, Khan p 226)

Partition into India and Pakistan, 1947:
Calls for Indian independence grew but so did the Hindu/Muslim tension over who would rule through the 19th and early 20th century.   Muslims demanded their own country.  Islam cannot live in equality, in an open diverse democracy.  Islam is the ultimate (white, Arab) totalitarian, supremacist ideology.     The founding father of Pakistan, Muhammad Ali Jinnah, in some real TAQIYYA, claimed Islam taught (Islamic) equality, (Islamic) justice, (Islamic) fairplay (1848 speech) ---yet demanded an Islamic Pakistan (Land of the pure) to keep Muslims from the filthy Hindus. (Khan p 154-155).  The great pity is some fast breeding Muslims stayed in India and remain a constant threat.

The Partition related riots caused 600,000 -2 million deaths.  About 100,000 predominantly Hindu and Sikh women were raped while hundreds of thousands were ENSLAVED and carried away to be married to Muslims.   Muslim Pathan raiders enslaved Kashmiri Hindu and Sikh girls, selling them in Pakistan markets (Jhelum) in 1947 (Khan p 102, 284).  Women again committed Jauhar by setting fire to themselves or jumping into a well or taking poison (Khan p 252). (Note this continues against Hindu girls in Bangladesh and Pakistan and Copts in Egypt today and elsewhere in the Islamic world where girls are abducted, raped and forced into marriage and Islam)

Possibly a few million were forcibly converted to Islam on pain of death in today’s ‘Pakistan’  (Khan p 101, 244) In areas like east Bengal, NW and Punjab, non-Muslims were dominant in business and industry but were forced to leave it all.   The Muslims expected to take all that others had worked for and built up (Khan p 244).  Non-Muslims received thousands of postcards depicting non-Muslim men and women being raped and slaughtered.  Any who didn’t leave were brutally punished eg thousands of corpses rotted on the streets of Lahore,  Araon.   Women were abducted and raped.  ‘Police’ and ordinary Muslims carried out the horrendous attacks as did Muslim magistrates and the military both pre and post partition (Khan p 226-241).

Muslim independence supporting pamphlets wrote of sword carrying Muslims killing Hindus and creating rivers of blood.  A ‘rally’ was set for the 18th day of Ramadan because it was in Ramadam that the Koran was revealed, the permission for jihad given; the battle of Badhr occurred against idolaters; and Mohammad and his 10,000 conquered Mecca, according to a Muslim  cited in Khan p 228.  Other pamphlets write of massacres and Muslim glory, and the open shiny gates of paradise.  Leaders mobilised ‘ordinary Muslims’ and put Muslim police in control of police stations in Calcutta.  Muslims poured into Hindu  and Sikh areas.  A gory rampage followed with rape, mutilation, murder, and children boiled in oil and flung from buildings.  Finally the attacked fought back! 

Further Muslim riots occurred in Bombay (South coast) and east Bengal (today’s Bangladesh NE )(Khan p 226-232).  The same sadism, rape of girls, enslavement, forced conversion, defilement of temples, and burning of villages occurred.  Ghandi tried the ‘gee let’s be friends’...!!   And the battle moved on from a Hindu response in Bihar to further Muslim attacks in provinces of today’s Pakistan.   Muslim mobs with guns, spears and hatchets carried out their death, rape, arson, and destruction.  Any refusing to convert faced total annihilation—children were boiled in oil, people were burnt alive eg in the villages of Rawalpindi...and those who surrendered in Doberan (mainly Sikhs)
 “a woman threw her four month old baby to save it from burning.  The infant was impaled on a spear and thrown into the fire( a description cited in Khan p236-7)  

Through the days of the partition, into the next year, Muslims attacked Hindus and Sikhs in every part of today’s Pakistan where Muslims were 60-92% of the population ie there were 592 major attacks in the Punjab and other parts of greater Pakistan initiated by Muslims.   Delhi, now in the Indian side, was also attacked by Muslims carrying all kinds of weapons and communication systems.  Blacksmiths and motor mechanics became weapons producers eg bombs.  Non-Muslims were stabbed, looted, shot and villages were burnt down.  Hindus responded to these attacks .(Khan p 226-237)

Ethnic cleansing of Hindus (Christians, Sikhs,etc) in Bangladesh and Pakistan continues today .
In 1905-11, ‘Bengal’ was split into mainly Muslim East Bengal and more Hindu West Bengal.  In 1911 it was reunited and split on linguistic grounds.  West Bengal became part of India while East Bengal became East Pakistan in 1947, then Bangladesh in 1971.  In a battle of mainly Muslims against Muslims for Bangladesh’s independence, the Pakistani army killed 1.5-3 million people in just 9 MONTHS. (Khan p 216).  The atrocities, the rapes were horrendous.  But, both Muslim groups hated Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhists, and Jains etc even more!

Muslim atrocities againsts Kashmiri Pandits (India's Palestine part 1)

Following the partition of India and Pakistan in 1947, 25-30% of the population in East Pakistan (now Bangladesh) were Hindu as were 10% in Pakistan ---today the numbers are about 10% in Bangladesh and 1% in Pakistan.   Hindus have left, or been forcibly converted.   Abduction and rape of Hindu girls and their forced marriage to Muslim men, general rape, seizure of land and property, mass evictions and a variety of other abuses and discrimination forced Hindus out.  About 10 million left between 1964-2001. (Khan p 170).

Islamic mob violence in East Pakistan (East Bengal-now Bangladesh) in the 1950’s was encouraged using claims of attacks on Islam.  Some 1.5 million Hindus fled to India.  Others were murdered, raped, forcibly converted, and enslaved (Khan p 245)  In Kashmir, Muslims enslaved young Hindu women and sold them in markets in Pakistan (Khan p 245)

Naeem Mohaiemen, a film maker and commentator, noted the treatment of Hindus in Bangladesh
“We are not only a class elite, but a Muslim elite that ravages this country and renders all others as shadow citizens. From the Vested Property Act onwards, there are laws, ‘understandings’, social norms, politics and quiet discrimination that have rendered our Hindu, Christian, Buddhist, Advasi (Aboriginal), and Pahari (Hill) citizens as sub-human—frozen out of schools, jobs, culture and lived life.”   (cited in Khan p 170)

In 2001 the Islamic party that won the elections allied with the Islamists and unleashed the vicious persecution of others—humiliation, torture, rape, murder... ...500,000 Hindus fled to India! (Khan p 259)

Islam’s Religious annihilation of Buddhism:
Buddhism was flourishing in central and SE Asia.  Yet Buddhism, once dominant in the Northwest (today’s Pakistan, Afghanistan) and East (Bengal-- Bangladesh) of India has been virtually wiped out.   Buddhism has no caste system and is far more egalitarian and peaceful than Islam so what happened?

In 1203, Bakhtiyar Khilji exterminated the Buddhists of Bihar, central to Buddhism.   After he gained possession of the place the Brahmans with shaven heads (actually Buddhist monks) were put to death.   When he reached the University of Nalanda (427-1197), a large number of books were there but no-one could describe the content of the books because the slaughter was so great, all the men had been killed.  When no copy of the Koran was found, Bakhityar Khilji  had the Nalanda University, a 9 storey library, burned to ashes. (Khan p 183, Trifkovic p 111).   This was a residential university and had 10,000 students and 2,000 teachers.  Scholars came from Korea, Japan, China, Tibet, Indonesia, Persia and ‘Turkey’.(Khan p 246)

The biography of Dharmasvamin, the highly educated Tibetan monk  who travelled in India in 1234-1236 CE noted in norther India (Bihar) “when they had reached the city of Vaisali, all the inhabitants had fled from fear of the Turushka (Muslim) soldiery”   There was no trace of Vikramasili –even its foundation stones were thrown into the Ganges.  Vajrsana was deserted.  He is noted for NOT exaggerating the destruction by the Muslims and his accounts are supported by independent evidence (Bostom p 643).

Muslim atrocities againsts Kashmiri Pandits (India's Palestine part 2)

Even a ridiculous Buddhist supporter of the Muslim demand for a separate Pakistan, Dr BR Ambedhkar, noted :

“Islam came out as the enemy of the ‘but’.  The word ‘but’... is the Arabic word and means an idol.  Thus the origin of the word indicates that in the Muslim 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 for the whole of Asia....

“The Mussalman invaders sacked the Buddhist universities of Nalanda, Vikramshila, Jagaddala, Odantapuri to name only a few.   How the Buddhist priesthood perished by the sword of the Muslim invaders has been recorded by the Muslim historians themselves.”

such was the slaughter of the Buddhist priesthood perpetrated by the Muslim 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.”  (cited in Khan p 184).

Slay the idolaters where ever you find them..(Koran 9.5)

It should be noted that Buddhism has also been totally removed from the nearby Maldives, where for millennia Buddhism was the religion.  Today the Maldives is a totalitarian Islamic state pretending to be a ‘democracy’ because the people can elect Muslim leader A or B.   Under the NEW constitution ALL Maldivian citizens must be Muslim, political leaders must be sunni Muslim, the education system and people must promote Islam, the laws are sharia or sharia based (abuse of women and children is high) and any who deviate from adherence to Islam are jailed or worse.  Only Muslims can own land.  Yet disgustingly the constitution claims to ensure the freedom and human rights of the people---except for freedom of thought, belief, action, speech or anything that dares deviate from Islamic dictates.  Waleed Aly has tried to link the Maldives with ‘tropical paradise’ knowing the ignorant Australians will think of the holiday brochures showing the sunny Maldives and people drinking alcohol and women in bikinis....while the true Muslim is thinking of the totalitarian, Islam only, Maldives-their idea of paradise!

Sufi involvement in violent jihad:
Using the ample evidence of both Muslim and non-Muslim chroniclers, travellers etc, both Lal and Khan dispell the propaganda myth of voluntary (is it ‘voluntary when your option is death or enslavement and rape?), peaceful conversion to Islam, particularly the claims of peaceful conversion by Sufis including claims that Sufi saint (Pir) Ma’Bari came to the Deccan around 1305 as a missionary and converted a large number of Jains –but by what means?  Muslim chroniclers reveal that Ma’bari came as a holy warrior, accompanying the Islamic army of Alauddin Khilji (d 1316), Shah of Delhi. Pir Ma’bari waged jihad, and with his iron bar broke heads and necks....many the hands of pir Ma’bari came to Islam.  Hence  pir Ma’bari got his last name –Khandayat—blunted bar!!  Khan notes that Sufis were fierce jihadis yet even westerners continue the ‘peaceful Sufi myth.’  A 14th century Sufi scholar, Amir Khasrau writes of many instances of mass enslavement leading to ‘conversion’ but fails to note any incidence of peaceful preaching of Sufis resulting in significant conversions (Khan p116-117).  Yes a few had music and dancing but even they didn’t challenge the Ulema (orthodox scholars of Islam). Most fully endorsed and participated in jihad, described infidels as wicked and heading to hell, hated Hinduism and endorsed dhimmitude.   Even Amir Khasrau (1253-1325), noted for his music and poetry (deemed a blessing for India)  delighted in the barbaric slaughter of Hindus eg
Commenting on Akbar’s order to massacre thousands  in Chittor in 1303
“Praise be to god!   That he so ordered the massacre of all chiefs of Hind out of the pale of Islam, by his infidel –smiting swords..”

And in describing Malik Kafur’s destruction of a famous Hindu temple in South India and accompanying slaughter-
“the heads of Brahmans and idolaters danced from their necks and fell to the ground at their feet, and blood flowed in torrents”

And in summary-
“The whole country, by means of the sword of our holy warriors, has become like a forest denuded of its thorns by fire.   Islam is triumphant, idolatry is subdued.  Had not the law granted exemption from death by the payment of poll-tax, the very name of Hind, root and branch, would have been extinguished”(Khan p 124)
(see full discussion of the violent role of Sufis in spreading Islam in India and today’s Kashmir, Bangladesh etc in Khan p 115-133)
Seems this Sufi was happy to ignore Islam’s prohibition on musical instruments in text and laws and Mohammad’s/Islam’s loathing of poetry (the erring ones follow poets Koran 26.224 and hadiths) but remained keen to slaughter or subjugate all infidels as Islam dictates.
Research shows “no trace of missionary movement for converting non-Muslims” with later claims re Sufi mystics as latter-day fabrications. (cited in Khan p 133)  Sufis and Hindus didn’t speak the same languages making conversion  by word very difficult!  As you read through the history of Islam in India you will note the endless parade of sadistic, fanatical, jihadi Sufis! (see parts I, J, K)

Kashmir:  A Sufi inspired bloody jihad
Sultan Sikandar  Butshikun the iconoclast (r 1389-1413)  “was constantly busy in annihilating the infidels and destroyed most of the temples’  (recorded by Haidar Malik Chadurah cited in Khan p 96-97).  Only Muslims could reside in Kashmir , and ‘idols’ were melted down.  Brahmins exited, poisoned themselves or converted.   Sikandar’s son Amir Khan (Ally Shah) butchered remaining Hindus. (Khan 111).

The Persian chronicle (1614) Baharistan-i-Shahi  records that mass conversion by the sword and the destruction of Hindu temples stamped out Hinduism in Kashmir during Sikandar’s reign  (assisted by Sufi Saint Sayyid Muhammad).  He notes that under the successor Sultan Zainul Abedin (Shahi Khan, r 1417-1467), many ‘converts’ again returned to Hinduism which came to ascendency so even the ulema (Muslim sufis. Nobles, judges) observed Hindu practices! (Khan p 96-97). 

Under the administration of Malik Musa Raina (administrator in 1501) and Kaji Chak (Malik Kagi Chak 1519, military commander under Sultan Mohammad Shah) Hindus were again forcibly converted to Islam en masse and again reverted at times of laxity (Khan p 97, p111).  Sufis were involved in the destruction of temples and their replacement by Mosques etc.  Shamsud-Din Iraqi (Sufi Saint) was ordered by Raina to bring 1,500-2000 infidels for circumcision and conversion each day- 24,000 were forcibly converted by the Sufi.(Khan p 129)
Those who reverted to Hinduism were massacred  eg 700-800 of the leading men were massacred on the holy day of Ashura (1518) by General Kaji Chak serving under Amir Shamsud-Din Muhammad Iraqi, a ‘great Sufi saint of Kashmir’.  (Khan p 97, p 129).    Kashmiris were forced into Islam by the sword ordered by a Sufi saint!

Under Aurangzeb (Akbar’s great grandson, reigned 1658-1707) , Kashmiri, ‘experts’ were converted en mass by force.  Daring to complain could result in beheading as Sikh guru Tegh bahadur singh (of Punjab) and 2 disciples discovered (Khan p 110).  Kashmir was transformed into a fanatical Muslim dominated state.

Khan notes that even Jawaharlal Nehru, 1st Prime Minister of independent India who whitewashed Islamic atrocities, noted in ‘The Discovery of India’ (p264) that the long process of conversion to Islam had resulted in 95% of Kashmir’s population being Muslim but they retained Hindu customs and even in the mid 19th century, large numbers wished to return to Hinduism! (p 97).

Afghanistan;  historically Hindu (Buddhist) and an integral province of ‘India’  until Sultan Mahmud Ghazni brought it under permanent Muslim sovereignty in 1000CE.
 Referred to as Gandhara and Vahlika in ancient Hindu-Buddhist scriptures, Hinduism (Saivite) and Buddhism (Mahayana) were the dominant faiths of the ancestors of  the present day Pathans inhabiting the Eastern and Southern parts of Afghanistan.    Around 654 CE, Arab forces started attacking the Hindu Kingdoms of Kabul and Zabul ruled by the Shahiya kings.  Zabul was conquered and tribute briefly paid by Kabul but the Hindus fought back through the 8th, 9th  century, maintaining their rule in Kabul until 986  CE when the Ghaznavid Turks (Mahmud) arrived (~1000CE).  (Lal [a] p 434-5)
The Pathans resisted for 2 centuries before they were overwhelmed and forcibly converted to Islam.  So great was the massacre of Hindus that the local mountain range was renamed as 'Hindu Kush' meaning 'Hindu slaughter'.  Hindu slaves also perished there 'en masse' on their way to Central Asia (Trifkovic p 111) In the 1980-90s, the 75,000 Hindu minority, mainly resident in Kabul, Jalalabad and Kandhar, was targeted selectively and their religious sites desecrated. They fled en-masse to cities like Delhi in India.   Several modern day Indian Hindu communities like the Sehgals are descendent of Afghan Hindus who fled Islamic persecution in Afghanistan several centuries ago.

The British vs Islam:
Like Muslims the British exploited India but their rule was brief (returning India to self-rule), they didn’t come to enslave, convert or destroy and replace.  The British didn’t plunder houses or temples but they did tax. Some taxes were invested in education, healthcare, infrastructure and state machinery in India.  Sadly rather than food crops the British encouraged (cheap) cash crops for British industry, hindering the already  backward (after Islam) Indian industry.  British atrocities were rare (usually a response to gross brutality particularly on British women and children) and the unarmed civilian population rarely suffered – even in the independence movement.  Yet Muslims and Indian Marxists in particular glorify Arab /Islamic rule!!(Khan p 261)

In their efforts to remove the British, Mahatma Ghandi and Nehru joined with the Islamist movement—until barbaric Islamic violence against Hindus occurred in Malabar (Kerala 1921 – see above) but even then Gandhi downplayed it!  (Khan p 226).

Muslims are praised because they settled in India but that was not because they admired Indian culture and wanted to assimilate, it was because they intended to wipe out its idolatry and polytheism and replace it with Islam in the view that Islam owns the world and must rule it.

The British brought: freedom, a secular democracy, secular education, rule of law, healthcare,  human rights, roads, rail, immigration,  telecommunications, civil service, modern universities, research, and abolished social ills eg jizya, slavery, suti, jauhar, thuggees etc. Remove Islam and the Hindus bloom in the creative, free atmosphere winning Nobel prizes. 

British ‘egalitarianism’ is regarded as victimisation and oppression for Muslims whose supremacist rule ended, though efforts continue to return it!

Tragically PC Indian leadership abuses the British but ignores the massive horror of Islam.  Some Hindu leaders elevate Mohammad and lie to followers so foolish Hindu girls marry Muslims!  In a return to Jizya and special treatment for Muslims, the state of Kerala reserves a certain % of jobs for Muslims---and other states are following (Khan p 188, p 249) Why? 

 Muslims conquered and stripped India and subjugated, slaughtered, enslaved, exploited, humiliated and terrorized the non-Muslims yet now, without the ‘dhimmi’ non-Muslims to live off, the Muslims are forced to work and develop like everyone else.  Tragically, the non-Muslims are still behaving as dhimmis (psychological dhimmitude)   in supporting and giving privileges to Muslims!   Non-Muslims not only in India but worldwide have been sucked into this so Muslims continue to extract their jizya...owed to them by those who won’t convert, while pretending Muslims are the ‘victims.’   Remember jihad (in many forms) continues until ALL the religion is allah's or until Islam is utterly defeated!

Is the Red Fort and Taj Mahal –built on the backs and wealth of India worth it?

And Today?
India remains under attack with terrorism (eg Mumbai-- slaughter of Hindus and even a  tiny Jewish site was sought out and the Jews slaughtered) and attacks by 'ordinary' Muslims on Hindus, disputes over religious sites taken by Muslims  and so on.  Mosques are popping up in Delhi as a threat to non-Muslims.  Many display selective blindness to the horrifying history and current danger of Islam.   The world now has the wonderful Islamic paradises of Afghanistan, Pakistan,  Bangladesh and Kashmir where the most evil abuse of little girls, women and non-Muslims occurs and the sexual abuse of little boys in Pakistani madrassas is ‘endemic’ (see Islamic school to learn ignorance by Sujit Das 3/4/08 this site).  Why aren’t all Muslims who currently live off our freedom, ignorance of Islam and largesse rushing to live in these Islamic countries under allah’s great laws?

And we have those great Islamic ‘freedom’ fighters:
a) Deobandi: with their hatred of anything western and their return to ‘pure Islam.’  They have madrassas and mosques in India, Pakistan, Afghanistan and south Asia and  links to the Taliban, and others.  Islamist group Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam, linked to Islamists across Asia, is embedded in the deobandi tradition.  (Sookdheo p 279)

b)  Jama’at-i Islami :  On the Indian subcontinent abu’l a’la Mawdudi  (1903-1979) influenced by the Muslim Brotherhood’s al-Banna (the MB dreamed up Sharia finance!), founded Jama’at-i Islami in 1941.  It aims for complete Islamic control via Jihad both military and personal.  Islam is a total ideological system that MUST dominate all public life (political, social, economic) as well as personal matters and private worship (Sookdheo p 281)

And there’s plenty more.  The Koran demands that ‘Fitna,’ anything that blocks Islam’s control must be eliminated! Fitna is anything deemed as hindering people from the chance to be Muslim or daring to present an alternative that might tempt the Muslim from Islam (it can’t cope with true open competition).

The records of mainly Muslim historians shows the great resistance of the Indian people (including the lower castes eg Bewaris, Marathas, Jats, Khokhars, Gonds, Bhils, Satnamis, Reddis etc) to Islam and the Islamic invasion (Khan p 88).  Free, unforced conversions were rare.  Ibn Battutah and Emperor Babur and emperor Jahangir noted the Hindus remained strongly hostile to Islam 6, 8, 9 centuries respectively after Islam entered India.(Khan p 94) Hindus resolutely endured mass murder on an unimaginable scale, enslavement, extreme social, cultural and religious degradation, humiliation, deprivation and crushing discriminatory taxes yet they retained their ancestral religion even after a millennium of brutal Islamic rule.  

Let’s hope they continue to resist and they get politicians, academics, media and religious leaders capable of telling the true horror of Islam or India will again be plunged into Islamic barbarity and apartheid.

Muslims noted the hospitable, tolerant, industrious, just and scientifically inclined local population (quotes in Khan p 215).   But Hindu tolerance and Buddhist aversion to battle helped to destroy them!  Islam cannot be ‘tolerated.’

Even in London, Hindus aren’t safe from Muslims.  Police have been called to protect Hindu girls terrorized by Muslim youths (Daily Mail  ‘Police protect girls forced to convert to Islam 22 Feb.  2007, Khan p171)

Instead of blaming the British, (who may have used the divide between Hindu and Muslim but certainly didn’t create it AND who were involved in the white-wash of Islam!!), AND falsifying history to white-wash Islam, it’s time to tell the true, horrifying history of Islam’s destruction and plunder of India.  Others can NEVER be equals under Islam.   Those who don’t convert must be subjugated and punished.   It’s time for non-Muslim India to retrieve its science and culture, past and present.  The evidence from the mouths of Muslims themselves shows their hatred of Hindus, Buddhists, Jains, Sikhs and their desire to obliterate them, in full accord with Islam’s text and law.  

The Taliban demolished the 18 centuries old Bamiyan Buddhist statues in Afghanistan in 2001;
Muslims bombed a first century rock carving of Buddha  in the Swat Valley in northwest Pakistan in 2007. 

To Islam, India is ‘unfinished business’ and oil-rich Muslims devote millions to the conversion of India.(Trifkovic p 113)

History - Violent Jihad

Australians celebrate and revere Anzac Day on April 25th each year in remembrance of our brave soldiers who fought in two great world wars to secure our freedom. Every Australian identifies with the slogan “lest we forget” and in services held around the country people reflect on the battles and men who died to secure our freedom. Yet across the world in France, there is one remarkable battle which helped form the Europe we know today and allowed the development of civilization based on Judeo Christian principles. This one famous battle has become known as the battle of Tours and effectively stopped the Muslim advance into Europe. After the death of Mohammed in 632AD, Muslim armies exploded out of the Arabian peninsula to conquer much of the Middle East, expanding across north Africa. From there they crossed into Spain in 711AD and eventually controlled much of al-Andalus by 715AD. It was the victory at Tours by Charles Martel that stemmed the tide and eventually the Muslim marauders were expelled from Spain in 1492 when the last outpost at Granada fell to King Ferdinand of Spain.

Barbary Corsair
Somalian Islamic Pirates & Lessons from History
The dramatic rescue of the American cargo-ship captain Richard Phillips from the hands of Somalian Islamic pirates by the U.S. Navy—killing three pirates, holding him hostage at gun-point, through precision-targeting—warrants a review of the U.S. struggle with piracy and hostage-taking in North Africa, which ended two centuries ago.

Raiding trade-caravans and hostage-taking for extracting ransom in Islam was started by Prophet Muhammad. Having become powerful and secure after his relocation to Medina from Mecca in 622, Muhammad initiated Jihad or holy war in the form of raids of trade-caravans for earning livelihood for his community. In the first successful raid of a Meccan caravan at Nakhla in December 623, his brigands killed one of the attendants, took two of them captive, and acquired the caravan as “sacred” booty. The captives were ransomed to generate further revenue. Muhammad, later on, expanded this mode of Jihad to raiding non-Muslim communities around Arabia—for capturing their homes, properties and livestock, capturing their women and children as slaves often for ransoming and selling, and imposing extortional taxes—which sometimes involved mass-slaughter of the attacked victims.

The First Islamic Terrorist Attack on Australian Soil
On January 1, 1915 two Broken Hill men, both former camel drivers, armed themselves with rifles, an homemade flag bearing Islamic insignia and a large supply of ammunition and launched a surprise attack on the Picnic Train about 3 kilometres outside Broken Hill.

The train carried about 1200 Broken Hill residents to Silverton where a picnic to celebrate the new year was to take place.

The two Muslim men, Gool Mohamed originally a Pashtun tribesman from Afghanistan and Mullah Abdullah from what is known today as Pakistan, decided to wage jihad against Australian infidels after Australia and the Ottoman Empire officially joined the opposite sides in the WWI.

This is a misconception, since the Inquisition in Spain was responsible for only between 4,000 and 5,000 lives. [1]

Yet in 1066AD, in a single day, muslims murdered over 4,000 Jews because Vizier Joseph ibn Naghrela had risen to a position greater than them, and of course, this upset the Muslim sensitivities. [2]

Mohammed, who at this stage needed more followers, decided to win those tribes over and convert them to his newly invented religion.

Islam was yet not as fully developed as we know it today, and Mohammed was still having his sessions with Allah (the Medina period revelations).
