This article series on ‘Islamic invasion in India’ is contributed by Rushmore, the active member of Satyagni team.
Once a Pakistani little boy asked his father- “Abba Ji! Was there water all over Pakistan before Muhammad Bin Qasim came?” Who are the Muslims of Indian Subcontinent- India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, and even Afghanistan? Who were their ancestors when Muhammad Bin Qasim was not even born? In spite of the fact that many of the sub continent Muslims think they belong to Arabs, the truth remains that their ancestors were Hindus and Buddhists. We know this truth brings thunderbolts to many subcontinent Muslims because it makes them inferior in front of Arabs in Sunnat of prophet (to be like Muhammad) which has direct say in getting heaven or hell hereafter. In order to convince themselves and of course Allah and Muhammad that they are no less Arabs, Mullahs in the subcontinent preach the gullible masses to ape Arabs in every possible field starting from worshipping in a language which is alien to them (Arabic) to using odd number of stones and dirt instead of water while cleansing…
The purpose of this article series is not to create hatred of one community among rest. Rather the objective is to help the scared and confused subcontinent Muslims come out of identity crisis and recognize their roots which are Indian and not Arabic for sure. This series aims at reminding Muslims the atrocities brought down to their ancestors as the price of becoming Muslims from Hindus. Those friends, who happily accept being called as slaves/apes of Arabs but feel shame in calling India as Mother and ancestral land, are requested to read it carefully. This is the challenge to all fanatic Mullahs and pseudo historians who are trying tooth and nail to fill hatred of ancestors and ancestral land in the hearts of already filled gullible Muslims.
Our message to Muslims- You are our Brothers and Sisters. You did not attack India you did not rule India but you were attacked and were ruled. You are natives, sharing with us the common ancestry. Jihadis from Arab and central Asia attacked us and made you slaves (as will be proven in this series). They don’t even consider you pure Muslims. So its high time that you give up this symbol of humiliation and slavery of 1000 years and come back to your original ancestral faith of Vedas. We are here to welcome you.
Our message to Hindus- Indian Subcontinent Muslims did not attack us as they are no outsiders but are natives and were Hindus. They were the real sufferers who had to give sacrifices of lives of dear and near ones during the Jihadi onslaught and still couldn’t save their faith. They are those who got converted at the point of sword with no second option. They have started hating us now because of their own troubles and our reluctance of taking them back in our Dharma which was/is their right. So its our foremost duty to convince them in most compassionate manner to come back to our/their Dharma.
There prevails a sick defeated mentality in subcontinent that believes in making people ostriches who bury their heads in sand when see any danger. Most of the Mullahs like Zakir Naik and Imam Bukhari suffer from this ailment. They believe in moving the goalpost after they have shot. Instead of facing truth and recognizing the problems they deny the existence of problems by twisting the facts, denouncing logic and distorting history. They are like a school kid who answers the questions he knows the solution for in a test and cries for rest of the questions as out of syllabus or incorrect!
The fanatic supporter of Osama Bin Laden, Taliban, and peace (?), Zakir Naik, who claims to be the expert/student of Islam and Hinduism without knowing Arabic and Sanskrit has his interesting thesis over Islamic invasion and conversion of Hindus in India. This expert of Islam, Hinduism, Sikhism, Buddhism, Jainism, Christianity, Judaism and all other isms in the world, has now become expert of history also. He claims that Islam was spread by intellectual sword instead of steel. He argues that Muslims ruled India for 1000 years and if Muslims would want, they could have converted each Hindu at the point of sword. In this articles series we will puncture this argument to the full.
All true Historians across the board agree that Islam in India was spread by force of sword. Actually any person who argues that Islam was spread peacefully and there were no forced conversions of Hindus in the reigns of Islamic rulers, ceases to be a historian! It is because by saying this, he goes against the very accounts, chronicles and biographies of Muslim rulers written by THEMSELVES and THEIR STOOGES. This article series will highlight only few examples from the vast accounts from Islamic rulers and Historians of atrocities, plunder, kill, rape, enslavement, and forced conversion Jihadis caused to the natives of India.
We have divided this work into two categories. First one to analyze the arguments of Jihadis of modern times in the support of peaceful history of Islamic spread in the subcontinent and the other one to let the facts speak for themselves. This article presents the logical analysis of Jihadi Zakir Naik’s arguments. So here we go with his video and subsequently the analysis of main points raised by him therein
1. Zakir: Islam was spread by sword means peace was spread by sword because Islam means peace.
0. We couldn’t understand the point Jihadi Zakir is trying to make here. If some person named Aman (means peace) detonates a bomb and kills hundreds, does it mean he should not be given punishment because his name means peace?
1. So Islam means peace and Muslim means peaceful. So why not translate the below news –
“Talibani Muslim blew up the suicide jacket in a Muslim area and killed N no of Muslims to establish Islamic rule”
“Talibani peaceful blew up the suicide jacket in a peaceful area and killed N no of peaceful to establish peace”
(Unless Zakir Naik calls Taliban and Al Qaida terrorists as Kafirs, the above translation is perfect as per his dictionary!)
2. Zakir: Just like many common misnomers such as earth is flat, squared triangle, and 2+2=5, Islamic terrorism is also a misnomer. Islam and terrorism are exactly opposite.
0. Misnomers of Flat earth, squared triangle, and 2+2=5 might be popular in Jihadi camps due to their beliefs in center of earth at surface, geocentric model of universe, and lack of basic mathematics skills but they are no longer misnomers for outside world.
1. BTW aren’t Jihadis expert in coining misnomers? Just look at following lines that splash all around the cyberspace on Jihadi websites these days
Quran has scientific miracles
Miracle of moon breaking is scientifically proven
Islam teaches equal treatment of free and slave
One wonders because if miracle, by definition, is something that can not be explained by science then how wise it is to use ‘scientific’ before miracle? If moon breaking is scientific i.e. as per scientific laws, then does it not cease to be miracle in first place? And among free and slaves, how the hell equality saves a slave from being a slave?
2. We agree with “Islam and terrorism are exactly opposite” completely. But it is to be noted that terrorism as per Islam is a bit different from rest of others. Lets see what Quran has to say about terrorism and how Islam deals with this
If a man kills a believer intentionally, his recompense is Hell, to abide therein [For ever]: And the wrath and the curse of Allah are upon him, and a dreadful penalty is prepared for him. [4:93]
Sahih Bukhari 9/83/50:
Narrated Abu Juhaifa: I asked `Ali “Do you have anything Divine literature besides what is in the Qur’an?”… Ali said,… we have nothing except what is in the Qur’an …and what is written in this sheet of paper.” I asked, “What is on this paper?” He replied, “…. and the judgment that no Muslim should be killed in Qisas (equality in punishment) for killing a Kafir (disbeliever).
So here we go, as per Islam, killing a Muslim intentionally brings death penalty to the killer in this world and hell hereafter. But on the other hand if a Muslim kills a Kafir (non believer) even intentionally, he is not to be put to death and neither this is any sin for which he is denied houris of heaven!
So terrorism has been defined as “killing of Muslims” in Islam and this is surely against Islam!
3. Zakir: The famous historian de lacy o’leary says that fanatical Muslims across the world forcing Islam at the point of the sword is the most fantastic absurd myth historians have ever repeated.
0. Ten times more famous historian than de lacy, Will Durant writes in his book- The Story of Civilization page 505: “The Mohammedan conquest of India is probably the bloodiest story in history“. The Islamic historians and scholars have recorded with great glee and pride of 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. “
1. Now the fight remains as to which of these two historians is higher authority? For this we will direct our readers to the chronicles and accounts of the Ghazis themselves in the next articles who have, with full pride, written volumes on how they attacked India and made it Dar ul Islam from Dar ul Harb.
2. Famous historian of Zakir Jihadi, de lacy, has however researched on Islamic conquest also and writes in How Greek science passed to the Arabs, the following
It is a debated point whether Muhammad intended his religion to be a universal one, or for the Arabs alone…. It is necessary for all Arabs to believe in Muhammad if they are to escape hell (Muslim, i, 54), but it is not stated to be necessary for non-Arabs to believe…. As regards the non-Arab world, the Qur’an seems to contemplate conquest rather than conversion (Qur., ix, 19-23)….. But these passages fall far short of a definite missionary command to go forth and preach Islam to all the nations of the earth.
So here the famous historian of Zakir Naik makes some interesting points which may not equally comfort Jihadis, for example
a. It is unclear whether Muhammad came with a universal religion or an Arabic one!
b. Islam is unclear on the necessity of accepting Muhammad as messenger by Non Arabs!
c. QURAN BELIEVES IN CONQUEST AND NOT IN CONVERSION
d. There are no commands for Muslims to preach Islam to other nations than Arabs in Quran!
We would like to see the comments of Zakir Bhai MBBS on his famous historian’s take on Islam itself. Zakir Bhai says there is no compulsion in religion and Islam means peace but his famous historian says that Quran believes in conquest instead of conversion 🙁
4. Zakir: “We” Muslims ruled Spain for 800 years, “we” Muslims- the Arabs are the lord of the Arab land for last 1400 years, but still 14 million Coptic Christians live in Arab, “we” Muslims ruled India for 1000 years, but still 80% population of India is Non Muslim. If we would want, we could have converted each and every Hindu at the point of the sword but we didn’t do it
0. Did the readers notice “we Muslims”? Isn’t it quite interesting that a person with Hindu lineage ‘Naik’ is claiming co ruling with Arabs and Mughals over Spain, Arab, and India for thousand years? 🙂 Isn’t it funny if a neo converted tribal Christian in Orissa starts claiming that we Christians ruled India for 200 years, grew industries and railways for tribal and uneducated people of India!
1. So Zakir Naik believes that if Coptic Christians in Arab, Hindus in India and Christians in Spain managed to survive their culture during Islamic rule then this is the proof that Islam didn’t force non Muslims to Islam. Great! But is this a valid logic? What if we apply this logic on
a. Pagans of Arabia who were 100% before advent of Islam but today even their traces are not found in Arab
b. Zoroastrians of Iran who are not found in today’s Iran
c. Hindus and Buddhists of today’s Afghanistan, Pakistan, Bangladesh, and Kashmir who constitute less than 1% of the population today but used to constitute 100% some 1400 years ago
d. And all the Non Arab nations and their natives who were 100% Non Muslims before Islam came and are 100% Muslims today?
If Zakir’s logic has to be true, he will have to accept that Islam was spread by sword in Arab, Persia, Today’s Afghanistan, Pakistan, India, Bangladesh, and all Muslim countries who used to be Non Muslims before Islamic invasions and are now almost 100% Islamic. Whom are you fooling Jihadi Zakir?
2. The reason of survival of Hindus in India was the presence of warriors like Durgadas Rathore, Rana Sanga, Maharana Pratap, Shivaji, Guru Govind Dingh, Banda Vairagi, Chhatrasaal, Krishnadev Rai and innumerable Hindu warriors of North-East who used to show the path of Jannah to Ghazi invaders in the battlefields. Muslim historian of Akbar, Badayuni, who also took part in famous Haldighati battle wrote- “There is not even a single race among Pathans and Mughals which can equal Hindus in valor and martial arts.” Islamic historians such as Ghulam Ali and Murtaza Hussain write- “Ten Maratha soldiers are sufficient for more than twenty well built Pathan warriors” [Ref: Hindu Itihas: Veeron ki daastaan by Rajesh Arya]
5. Zakir: It was the sword of intellect that forced Non Muslims to convert to Islam. Quran [16:125] commands every Muslim to argue with others and bring them to Islam through dialogues
0. Why are both ‘preachers’ and ‘converted’ intellectuals who preached and converted to Islam through intellect have been the most gullible people of all times? Where are these intellectuals who are expected to participate in intellectual activities like science and technologies?
1. Anyway Mullah Zakir Naik is in full swing with his Taqiyya (lying sanctioned by Islam to deceit Kafirs)! He quotes Quran [16:125] which has been canceled by Ayah e Saif or the verse of sword [9:5] which asks Muslims to slay idolaters wherever they are found. This Taqiyya is well exposed by none other than Zakir’s co terrorist Israr Ahmed, prominent Islamic scholar from Pakistan and an eminent speaker of Peace (?) TV of Zakir Naik. Please see at 3:48 in the below video and you would know what is the reality of the intellectual sword of Islam
He says- what we (Muslims) told Non Muslims (during conquest) that either you accept Islam and be equal to us or live as inferiors to us in Islamic state or let our swords decide!
We now suggest Zakir Naik to clarify as to which one of these two is lying, he himself or Israr?
2. Zakir’s Taqiyya is also busted by the most authentic Sunni Tafsir of Quran by Ibn Kathir, in the verse [3:110] and it says
“You, Muslims, are the best nation of people for the people, you bring them tied in chains on their necks (capture them in war) and they later embrace Islam.”
3. During Muslim rule in India, not just people got converted to Islam but places and animals were also converted (oops reverted as per ZN)! Karnavati was converted to Ahmedabad and Prayag accepted Islam and became Allahabad. In the battle of Haldighati, elephant of Maharana Pratap named Ramprasad was captured by Akbar’s forces and he made Ramprasad accept Islam to become Peerprasad! Just asking Zakir Naik, were the cities and animals also intellectual enough to get convinced by Islamic intellectual sword?
6. Zakir: The only religion accepted by Allah is Islam which means peace! [9:33]
0. So finally Zakir ends up shooting his own foot! Allah will kill you if you don’t bow to Islam which means peace 🙂 It resembles with the example we gave in the starting where we proved that Taliban are peaceful because they spread peace to the peaceful people by killing them in blasts (which are noisy BTW)!
In the end, we share with our readers two accounts of two most respected Jihadis in the subcontinent, Muhammad Bin Qasim and Mahmoud of Ghazna IN THEIR OWN WORDS (historian Zakir Naik can still deny these bare facts because Islam means peace but for others, it is time to think)
Muhammad Bin Qasim writes to Hijaj Bin Yusuf, The Caliph- The forts of Siwistán and Sísam have been already taken. The nephew of Dáhir, his warriors, and principal officers have been despatched, and the infidels converted to Islám or destroyed. Instead of idol temples, mosques and other places of worship have been built, pulpits have been erected, the Khutba is read, the call to prayers is raised, so that devotions are performed at the stated hours. The takbír and praise to the Almighty God are offered every morning and evening.
Tarikh-i-Yamini of Utbi (regarding Mahmoud of Ghazna) contains- (At Thanesar) The blood of the infidels flowed so copiously, that the stream was discoloured, notwithstanding its purity, and people were unable to drink it. Had not night come on and concealed the traces of their flight, many more of the enemy would have been slain. The victory was gained by God’s grace, who has established Islám for ever as the best of religions, notwithstanding that idolaters revolt against it. The Sultán returned with plunder which it is impossible to recount.—Praise be to God, the protector of the world, for the honour he bestows upon Islám and Musulmáns!
More such accounts will be discussed in subsequent articles which will clearly prove that denying the bloodshed during Islamic reign is itself the biggest lie historians (?) like Zakir Naik have ever produced. Now in the end we share a video from Pakistan in which famous intellectuals of Pakistan are shedding tears on distortion of history of Islam in Indian subcontinent. Readers will find that not everything is lost and there are still few people left in Muslim society who do not mince the truth and love their pre Islamic culture.
For those readers who don’t understand Urdu, we give here important points made by the scholars in the video
1. Pakistani Muslims celebrated the memories of Alexander the great near the banks of Chinab and called him Sikander e Azam thinking that he was a Muslim and he defeated Hindu King Porus!
2. It was not Alexander but Porus who won the battle! But Porus, being Hindu, is downplayed against Alexander by Muslims of subcontinent!
3. Muslims are masters in distorting history.
4. Islamic rulers were so much against the education, science and technology that when someone offered Shahzahan a printing press, he refused saying it is disgusting and deserves hatred (Lanati)!
5. The biggest base on US military is in Qatar and the Caliph there admits that we are thankful to US because if they wouldn’t establish their base in our country, it would have been already invaded and conquered by rest of Arab countries!
6. Pakistani policy makers have now decided to exclude Ashoka and Chandragupt Mourya from the history of subcontinent because they were Hindus!
7. Muhammad Bin Qasim did not come to Sind on the call of a woman as foolishly glorified and taught to Muslims. He had attempted twice already to capture Sind before he is said to have come on the call of a girl!
8. Mahmoud of Ghazna burnt whole city of Lahore during one of his invasions. These are blatant lies that Mahmoud Ghaznavi made Lahore the cultural center as thought by many.
9. It is false that Subcontinent Muslims ruled India for 600 Years. It were invaders of Central Asia and Iran etc who ruled.
10. Mughals hated Indians too much and Baburnama is the evidence of their hatred.
11. No native Muslim (converted from Hindu) was considered to be Sultan of Muslims.
12. It is false that Babur, Akbar and other Mughals loved India. They hated India and its culture so much that they used to have Persian as official language in courts and Turkish in their homes ignoring native languages.
So with this we end the article. Next few articles will be based on bare facts that will prove that Muslims of subcontinent were Hindus originally and were forced to accept Islam. In this article we have shown the fallacy in the arguments of fanatics like Zakir Naik who want to build their case on lies. They don’t want Muslims to return to their ancestral faith but it Muslims themselves who have to decide whether to continue turning the blind eyes from the truth or to accept the truth and come back to their culture and Dharma.
Let the truth prevail!
