The Moslem Conquest of India

Here is an extract from the book “The Story of Civilization” by Will and Ariel Durant. It relates to the conquest of India by unlettered, brutal barbarians driven by lust for war, wealth and women, and full of hatred of others that we know is so typical of the monotheists. While the two Durants give a good account of the initial centuries of Muslim invasion of India and their barbarity on Hindus, being worshipers of the dead Jew, they too cannot escape monotheistic bigotry in their reporting. They have proclaimed in this extract that Hindus were following cults (not a religion) and that the invasion by illiterate Muslims only “advanced that weakening of Hindu physique and morale, which had been begun by an exhausting climate, an inadequate diet, political disunity, and pessimistic religions.”

The idiots could never explain if Hindus were living in so much superstition, eating inadequate food, following a pessimistic religion and surviving in an “exhaustive climate” (presumably, for Americans and Europeans, all temperatures above zero degree centigrade are exhausting), how the hell could Hindus accumulate so much wealth through trade and industry and become the richest nation of the world which poor barbarians (presumably following superior monotheistic religions) would try to attack again and again for loot — they only way of becoming rich the monotheistic barbarians know. Just 300 years after Muslim attacks on India, another brand of monotheistic barbarians were roaming the seas looking for India for loot and plunder.

The two Durant zombies further proclaim: “Weakened by division, it [India] succumbed to invaders; impoverished by invaders, it lost all power of resistance, and took refuge in supernatural consolations; it argued that both mastery and slavery were superficial delusions, and concluded that freedom of the body or the nation was hardly worth defending in so brief a life.” These dudes come from a White civilisation that was destroyed by the Roman invasions, could never recover or protect their indigenous spiritual traditions, and even today follow a religion (xianity) imposed by alien invaders. But they tut-tut so much about Hindus who for 1000 years fought so hard with the invaders that they still remain Hindus and preserve all their traditions.

Anyway, read the following extract for what happens to a superior, cultured, wealthy polytheistic civilization with a great tradition of science and arts, when it gets invaded by monotheistic barbarians living in poverty and ignorance and burning with hatred for everyone superior to them in the civilizational scale.

The Moslem Conquest of India
An Extract from ‘The Story of Civilization’ By Will & Ariel Durant [Volume 1, Chapter 16]

The Mohammedan Conquest of India is probably the bloodiest story in history. It is a discouraging tale, for its evident moral is that civilization is a precarious thing, whose delicate complex of order and liberty, culture and peace may at any time be overthrown by barbarians invading from without or multiplying within. The Hindus had allowed their strength to be wasted in internal division and war; they had adopted religions like Buddhism and Jainism, which unnerved them for the tasks of life; they had failed to organize their forces for the protection of their frontiers and their capitals, their wealth and their freedom, from the hordes of Scythians, Huns, Afghans and Turks hovering about India’s boundaries and waiting for national weakness to let them in.

For four hundred years (600-1000 A.D.) India invited conquest; and at last it came. The first Moslem attack was a passing raid upon Multan, in the western Punjab (664 A.D.) Similar raids occurred at the convenience of the invaders during the next three centuries, with the result that the Moslems established themselves in the Indus valley about the same time that their Arab co-religionists in the West were fighting the battle of Tours (732 A.D.) for the mastery of Europe. But the real Moslem conquest of India did not come till the turn of the first millennium after Christ.

In the year 997, a Turkish chieftain by the name of Mahmud became sultan of the little estate of Ghazni, in eastern Afghanistan. Mahmud knew that his throne was young and poor, and saw that India, across the border, was old and rich; the conclusion was obvious. Pretending a holy zeal for destroying Hindu idolatry, he swept across the frontier with a force inspired by a pious aspiration for booty. He met the unprepared Hindus at Bhimnagar, slaughtered them, pillaged their cities, destroyed their temples, and carried away the accumulated treasures of centuries. Returning to Ghazni, he astonished the ambassadors of foreign powers by displaying “jewels and unbored pearls and rubies shining like sparks, or like wine congealed with ice, and emeralds like fresh sprigs of myrtle, and diamonds in size and weight like pomegranates.”

Each winter, Mahmud descended into India, filled his treasure chest with spoils, and amused his men with full freedom to pillage and kill; each spring he returned to his capital richer than before. At Mathura (on the Jumna), he took from the temple its statues of gold encrusted with precious stones, and emptied its coffers of a vast quantity of gold, silver and jewellery; he expressed his admiration for the architecture of the great shrine, judged that its duplication would cost one hundred million dinars and the labour of two hundred years, and then ordered it to be soaked with naphtha and burnt to the ground.

Six years later, he sacked another opulent city of northern India, Somnath, killed all its fifty thousand inhabitants, and dragged its wealth to Ghazni. In the end, he became, perhaps, the richest king that history has ever known. Sometimes he spared the population of the ravaged cities, and took them home to be sold as slaves; but so great was the number of such captives that after some years no one could be found to offer more than a few shillings for a slave. Before every important engagement, Mahmud knelt in prayer, and asked the blessing of God upon his arms. He reigned for a third of a century; and when he died, full of years and honours, Moslem historians ranked him as the greatest monarch of his time, and one of the greatest sovereigns of any age.

Seeing the canonization that success had brought to this magnificent thief, other Moslem rulers profited by his example, though none succeeded in bettering his instruction. In 1186 the Ghuri, a Turkish tribe of Afghanistan, invaded India, captured the city of Delhi, destroyed its temples, confiscated its wealth, and settled down in its palaces to establish the Sultanate of Delhi – an alien despotism fastened upon northern India for three centuries, and checked only by assassination and revolt.

The first of these bloody sultans, Kutb-ud-Din Aibak, was a normal specimen of his kind – fanatical, ferocious and merciless. His gifts, as the Mohammedan historian tells us, “were bestowed by hundreds of thousands, and his slaughters likewise were by hundreds of thousands.”In one victory of this warrior (who had been purchased as a slave), “fifty thousand men came under the collar of slavery, and the plain became black as pitch with Hindus.”

Another sultan, Balban, punished rebels and brigands by casting them under the feet of elephants, removing their skins, stuffing these with straw and hanging them from the gates of Delhi. When some Mongolian habitants who had settled in Delhi, and had been converted to Islam, attempted arising, Sultan Ala-ud-din (the conqueror of Chitor) had all the males – from fifteen to thirty thousand of them – slaughtered in one day.

Sultan Muhammad bin Tughlak acquired the throne by murdering his father, became a great scholar and an elegant writer, dabbled in mathematics, physics and Greek philosophy, surpassed his predecessors in bloodshed and brutality, fed the flesh of a rebel nephew to the rebel’s wife and children, ruined the country with reckless inflation, and laid it waste with pillage and murder till the inhabitants fled to the jungle. He killed so many Hindus that, in the words of a Moslem historian, “there was constantly in front of his royal pavilion and his Civil Court, a mound of dead bodies and a heap of corpses, while the sweepers and executioners were wearied out by their work of dragging” the victims“ and putting them to death in crowds.”

In order to found a new capital at Daulatabad, he drove every inhabitant from Delhi and left it a desert; and hearing that a blind man had stayed behind in Delhi, he ordered him to be dragged from the old to the new capital, so that only a leg remained of the wretch when his last journey was finished.

The Sultan complained that the people did not love him, or recognize his undeviating justice. He ruled India for a quarter of a century, and died in bed. His successor, Firoz Shah, invaded Bengal, offered a reward for every Hindu head, paid for 180,000 of them, raided Hindu villages for slaves, and died at the ripe age of eighty. Sultan Ahmad Shah feasted for three days whenever the number of defenceless Hindus slain in his territories in one day reached twenty thousand.

These rulers were often men of ability, and their followers were gifted with fierce courage and industry; only so can we understand how they could have maintained their rule among a hostile people so overwhelmingly outnumbering them. All of them were armed with a religion militaristic in operation, but far superior in its stoical monotheism to any of the popular cults of India; they concealed its attractiveness by making the public exercise of the Hindu religions illegal, and thereby driving them more deeply into the Hindu soul. Some of these thirsty despots had culture as well as ability; they patronized the arts, and engaged artists and artisans — usually of Hindu origin — to build for them magnificent mosques and tombs; some of them were scholars, and delighted in converse with historians, poets and scientists. One of the greatest scholars of Asia, Alberuni, accompanied Mahmud of Ghazni to India, and wrote a scientific survey of India comparable to Pliny’s “Natural History” and Humboldt’s “Cosmos”.

The Moslem historians were almost as numerous as the generals, and yielded nothing to them in the enjoyment of bloodshed and war. The Sultans drew from the people every rupee of tribute that could be exacted by the ancient art of taxation, as well as by straightforward robbery; but they stayed in India, spent their spoils in India, and thereby turned them back into India’s economic life. Nevertheless, their terrorism and exploitation advanced that weakening of Hindu physique and morale, which had been begun by an exhausting climate, an inadequate diet, political disunity, and pessimistic religions. The usual policy of the Sultans was clearly sketched by Ala-ud-din, who required his advisers to draw up “rules and regulations for grinding down the Hindus, and for depriving them of that wealth and property which fosters disaffection and rebellion.”

Half of the gross produce of the soil was collected by the government; native rulers had taken one-sixth. “No Hindu,” says a Moslem historian, “could hold up his head, and in their houses no sign of gold or silver… or of any superfluity was to be seen …. Blows, confinement in the stocks, imprisonment and chains, were all employed to enforce payment.” When one of his own advisers protested against this policy, Alauddin answered: “Oh,Doctor, thou art a learned man, but thou hast no experience; I am an unlettered man, but I have a great deal. Be assured, then, that the Hindus will never become submissive and obedient till they are reduced to poverty. I have therefore given orders that just sufficient shall be left to them from year to year of corn, milk and curds, but that they shall not be allowed to accumulate and property.”

This is the secret of the political history of modern India. Weakened by division, it succumbed to invaders; impoverished by invaders, it lost all power of resistance, and took refuge in supernatural consolations; it argued that both mastery and slavery were superficial delusions, and concluded that freedom of the body or the nation was hardly worth defending in so brief a life. The bitter lesson that may be drawn from this tragedy is that eternal vigilance is the price of civilization. A nation must love peace, but keep its powder dry.

This is not Kashmir: When Vadodara DSP told Sansrod Muslims

Muslims doing what they do best. Notice the role of mosques in organizing and controlling a Muslim mob. Mosques are the nodes which are essential for Muslim mobilization. Without mosques, they become disoriented as they need a physical location as the control center. The best way to defang the Muslim society is to not allow mosques to establish and enforce compulsory home worship.

This is not Kashmir: When Vadodara DSP told Sansrod Muslims

What happened at Sansrod yesterday is worth explaining in detail here:

Details of the event:

- Sansrod is a village in Karjan taluka of Vadodara district in central Gujarat. It is located next to national highway no.8. This Muslim dominated village has around 10,000 population. Village sarpanch is Muslim.

- On Id-Ul-Zuha(Bakr Eid) day (Wednesday, 16th October 2013) Shinor police’s ASI Bhupendrasinh Gumansinh was in Karjan where Karjan CPI(Circle Police Inspector) Vala received information about slaughter of cows. The information was passed on by wellknown local animal right activist Jatin Vyas.

- A team of police visited Sansrod to raid the place where slaughter was being carried out. When police team reached, two deadbodies of calves were lying there, photos of which are published in some Gujarati newspapers today.

- Four butchers were caught red-handed. Later police involved itself in panchnama procedure.

- According to head constable/driver Bhagvangiri Shankargiri, suddenly there was a voice like a siren from the mosque. Soon a large mob of over 200 Muslims gathered there. Some of them were possessing sharp weapons.

- Bhupendrasinh was attacked with sharp weapon on his chest and back, and was also beaten up with bamboo stick.

- Other police men were injured in heavy stone pelting.

- PSI Sagar fired two rounds in air. 22 tear gas shells were lobbed.

- Muslims snatched PSI Sagar’s revolver and threw it to rain water channel. A JCB excavator machine was employed on urgent basis to recover revolver. After hours of efforts, revolver was found out.

- Police men FD Solanki, Rajendrasinh Lallubhai and Jesingbhai and Vanraj Bharwad ran away and had shelter in one house owned by local Hindu Vasantbhai Bhatt. Muslims surrounded the house from all sides and refused policemen to allow to leave. This situation continued for three hours.

- District police chief and other senior police officials got the details of the incident and rushed to the village, but choose to camp outside the village at Hindustan Petroleum pump on national highway no.8. District Collector, DySP and others also rushed to the the petrol pump.

- One police man abducted by villagers escaped successfully. He managed to get basic medical treatment nearby and reached petrol pump.

- At petrol pump, District police chief called local Muslim leaders one-by-one to talk about release of abducted policemen.

- Local Muslim leaders Altaf Yakul Saleh, Sarpanch Abbasbhai Asodwala and Babu Bavla made condition that they would free the abducted cops only in exchange of release of four butchers arrested from the village. The DSP clearly told Muslims, “this is not Kashmir. If you wish to kill abducted policemen, go ahead, we will do what we need to do, but culprits will not be released.”

- After 12.00 the three police men were released and taken to petrol pump in police vehicle. They said they were not harmed during abduction.

- According to a report in local newspaper, 200 strong mob gathered to attack the police men only after an announcement from mosque. Women were kept on front side. Police was first attacked with chilly powder, and later with stones.

- Those arrested are Ismael Ahmed Limdawala, Harukh Mohammadhussain Bau Diwan, Abdul Ibrahim Limdawala, Mayuddin Umarji Ghanina.

- Muslims torched one police jeep.

- Muslim teenagers blocked a road connecting to the village by putting a tree and a bullock cart to prevent police’s entry.

- Police has filed complaint against a mob of 100-124 persons. More than 39 were identified within ours.

- All 100-125 are now facing charged under sections 307, 326, 395, 397, 353, 186, 332, 333, 224, 427, 428, 429, 435, 201.

Jholawalas of JNU teaching sedition

Seeds of future conflict are being sown by the jholawalas of JNU by brainwashing a gullible section of Hindus with the Aryan-Dravidian theory. These people want to trigger a civil war and are traitors, and I won’t be surprised if this is being done with the encouragement of missionaries. I hope the IB is keeping a watch on these people. It’s time India shut down JNU and turned it into an engineering institute. In fact, it’s time all social science departments were shut down as these are just tools of neo-colonialism in the hands of the Whites.

The same Aryan-Dravidian theory was used to project Ravana as a South Indian Dravidian hero who fought with the North Indian Aryans. The “Dravidians” did a U turn when they were told that Ravana was a Brahmin and a devotee of Lord Shiva. Now, the JNU jholawalas are playing the same trick in the north with Mahisasur.

Tribals, backwards seek own voices in Durga Puja this year

Over 15 districts spread across Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Jharkhand, West Bengal and Orissa saw Durga Puja with a difference this festival season. Instead of the goddess slaying Mahishasur, the usual story of the Puja, this year, tribals and people belonging to Scheduled Castes and backward classes in these districts are celebrating the “demon king” as a non-Aryan inhabitant and a just king of the land, with Durga representing Aryan invaders.

They will conclude the Puja with Vijay Dashmi or Dussehra marked as ‘Mahishasur Shahadat Diwas (Martyrdom Day)’.

According to this version, it is the Brahmins and Aryans who spun the “false” yarn of Durga being good and Mahishasur evil.

The first Mahishasur Diwas celebration was organised by the All India Backward Students’ Forum at Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU), New Delhi, three years ago — perhaps the first such subaltern version of the mythology of Mahishasur and Durga. Now, for the first time, it is being observed at such a large scale.

“The nine days of Durga Puja have never been a time of celebration for the Kherwal tribes but that of mourning. Only this time, there is greater awareness amongst our people about the story of Mahishasur and Durga,” Ajit Prasad Hembram, a tribal activist organising the Mahishasur Martyrdom Day in Purulia district of West Bengal, said over the phone. “Similar ceremonies are being organised in at least 20 different places in West Bengal this year, including Malda, Bankura and Hooghly.”

As per Hembram and Ashwini Kumar Pankaj, a tribal activist and editor of Johar Disum Khabar, a multi-lingual journal published from Ranchi, Mahishasur (also known as Hudhud Durga) was a clan leader of tribals in the Santhal region, who put up a strong fight against Aryan invasion. According to Hembram, as tribals did not pick up weapons against women, children, aged and the weak, the Aryans sent a woman to lure him. “The Aryans came with a proposal of marriage. But they used treachery and a woman called Durga killed Mahishasur,” said Hembram.

A similar story is narrated by Pankaj: “There is a tradition among the Santhals wherein during the Navratras, they hold what is called the Dasain dance. During that dance, tribals visit houses and search for something. That something is nothing but Hudhud Durga.”

Celebrating the Mahishasur Martyrdom Day on Sunday, tribals in Puruliya danced the Dasain and Kathi dance and presented their story of Hudhud Durga through a play, apart from organising meetings and telling people about Mahishasur, said Hembram.

He added that Asur or Rakshas as presented in the Vedas and Puranas were none other than natives who fought the Aryans to protect their land. “There is still a tribe called Asur amongst the Kherwals. So they are living people who are shown as devils and killed symbolically every year at Durga Puja,” said Hembram.

Dr Vijay Kumar Trisharan, president of the Ambedkar Chetna Parisar, Palamu, Jharkhand, will organise the Mahishasur Martyrdom Day on Monday in his district.

In Giridih district of Jharkhand, people are observing the Mahishasur Martyrdom Day by tying black clothes on their faces and narrating the story of the just king door to door, said Damodar Gop of Giridih.

Like the tribals, the Yadavs also claim to be descendants of Mahishasur. One view is that the name Mahishasur is derived from ‘Mahish’, meaning buffalo, the main source of sustenance for both the Yadavs and tribals.

“Mahishasur was our ancestor and these stories of him being a demon are wrong,” said Rajvir Singh Yadav, founder president of the All India Prabudh Yadav Sangam and editor of the journal Yadav Shakti Patrika. “We are advocates of equality and are striving to promote rational thinking and wipe out superstitions.”

Yadav will organise the Mahishasur Martyrdom Day in Sitapur, Uttar Pradesh. It will also be celebrated in Kaushambi, Deoria, Sant Kabir Nagar, Unnao and Maharajganj districts of the state.

Bihar will also see such celebrations in Patna, Nawada, Muzaffarpur and Buxar. In Muzaffarpur, the celebrations will also include an idol of Mahishasur. Harendra Prasad, who is organising the meeting in Minapur, Muzaffarpur, claims to be a descendant of Mahishasur and said he will soon get a marble statue of Mahishasur erected.

In Orissa, Kalahandi district will hold the Mahishasur Diwas, said Narayan Bagarty, a social activist.

According to Jitendra Yadav, president of the All India Backward Students’ Forum and a PhD scholar at JNU, the “widespread acceptance” of the Mahishasur Diwas was a successful attempt to emancipate subalterns from the grasp of Brahminical culture.

“India is a land of myriad cultures. But a particular group forced its own version of culture and religion on us. It was against this homogenisation that we started observing the Mahishasur Martyrdom Day,” he said.

Malaysia court bans use of the word ‘allah’ by non-Muslims

Like in India, missionaries have been trying inculturation tactics in Malaysia too, calling the Christian God as Allah, devoting their churches to Allah, and calling Jesus as son of Allah. This had been creating a lot of resentment among Muslims as many gullible Muslims had been falling to the trick. The Malaysia high-court has now put an end to the practice.

Malaysian appeals court upholds government ban against use of ‘Allah’ by non-Muslim minority
 
A Malaysian appeals court on Monday upheld a government ban against the use of the word “Allah” to refer to God in non-Muslim faiths, overruling claims by Christians in this Muslim-majority nation that the restriction violates their religious rights.”Allah” is the Arabic word for God and is commonly used in the Malay language to refer to God. But the Malaysian government insists that “Allah” should be exclusively reserved for Muslims because of concerns its use by others would confuse Muslims and could be used to convert them.

True colors of Amir Khan

This dude is a Jehadi in disguise.

FIR against Aamir Khan for hurting religious sentiments while shooting for PK

An FIR was lodged against Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan, Director and other actors under-production movie PK for allegedly hurting religious sentiments during the shooting of the film in Chandni Chowk area here on Friday.

The FIR was lodged after locals objected to a scene in which a man dressed as Lord Shiva was pulling a rickshaw in which two burqa-clad women were sitting.

Initially, people thought the actors were members of a Ram Leela party but on seeing cameras they inquired about the issue.

The man who was dress like Lord Shiva was intercepted by a mob which had gathered on the spot.

A policeman who was on patrol duty also inquired about the matter and the three actors were taken to Kotwali police station, said a police official.

The actors told police that it was a dream sequence of the movie and they had all the legal documents and permission for shooting. But the mob that had reached the police station started shouting slogans alleging they were hurting religious sentiments.

“We lodged an FIR under section 295 A (injuring or defiling place of worship with intent to insult the religious of any class) and 153 A of Indian Penal Code (IPC) (promoting enmity between different groups on ground of religion, race, place of birth, residence, language) against the actors,” said a police official.

A police source said that Aamir Khan and Director of movie Raj Kumar Hirani have been named in the FIR.

1 married man ends life every 9 minutes in India!

Shocking statistics — how lopsided laws in favour of women are talking a toll on men in India who are committing suicide in droves as they get harassed by estranged and vindictive wives. My close friend spent two months in jail because he was falsely accused of dowry harassment by his in-laws and wife (who later divorced him after claiming a hefty compensation of Rupees ten lakhs in cash). Worse, such scheming women after divorce can now claim half of the share of ancestral property inherited by the husband that has been passed down through generations of his family. Laws have to be fair and just to both the parties. You cannot blow your fuse and make them so lopsided that the other side is forced to commit suicide to escape harassment. Same with tenancy laws introduced by that deranged idiot Nehru who hated property owners as “revanchist fascists.” Today, if some tenant squats on your property, it is impossible to remove him. Many widows and old people have lost their property this way to thuggish tenants who refuse to vacate. The idiotic tenancy laws even allow the rented property to be passed down from tenant father to his son, showing middle finger to the poor sod who owns the property!

1 married man ends life every 9 minutes in India!

Every nine minutes a married man commits suicide in India due to alleged misuse of section 498a of IPC against them, taking the toll to around a whopping 64,000 every year, says a report.

“National Crime Records Bureau statistics reveal more incidences of suicide by married men than by married women. In 2012, approximately 64,000 married men committed suicide vis-a-vis 32,000 married women,” says D S Rao, president of Hridaya-Nest of Family Harmony, an NGO, quoting a survey by it.

As per Section 498a the husband of a woman or his relative who subjects her to cruelty shall be punished with imprisonment for a term of up to to three years and shall also be liable to fine.

Rao said the misuse of 498a also leads to suffering of old parents as well as the family members and relatives of the men against whom the complaints have been lodged.

“The law is not serving its purpose and is instead being used by a section of the people to vent their anger and extort married men and their families,” claimed Amit Gupta, an official of the NGO.
