My dear friend and colleague Narain Kataria has an excellent piece on the jihad against the Hindus:
The conquest of India by Islamic invaders is a long and dreadful
narrative of multiple ferocious wars between the invaders and the
valiant Hindu Rajas who ruled over different parts of India during
medieval times. The barbaric invaders, including Muhammad Ghauri and
Babur, took morbid delight in building towers of the skulls of
slaughtered 'kaffirs' (read Hindus), a stark fact, proudly recorded by a
number of Muslim historians in great detail. Most braveheart Hindu
rulers zealously defended their motherland, their subjects and above all
their honor at a terrible cost; unlike the Arab conquest of the Persian
empire within a short span of two decades and similar fate of Byzantine
empire and smaller kingdoms of central Asia. In sharp contrast, the
Islamic invaders had to fight multiple tortuous, gut-wrenching battles
for centuries to subjugate the Hindus. The resistance offered by the
masses to invaders and freebooters was formidable indeed. Occasionally
there were some traitors, too, like Raja Jaichand of Kannauj, whose name
has become synonymous with treachery.
The hostility between two
kingdoms, namely the Chauhans of Rajasthan and Gahadwala Rajputs of
Kannauj was a major cause of the defeat of Prithviraj Chauhan in 1192.
Had the armies of two gutsy Hindu rulers stood united in the battle of
Tarain, the invading armies could have been defeated.
atrocities committed by Muslim rulers on Sikhs of Punjab and Marathas in
south were horrendous. Jahangir had murdered the fifth Sikh Guru Arjan
Dev in a most diabolical manner. The epitome of courage Arjan Dev was
made to sit on a hot plate and hot sand was poured on him to torture him
to death. Later on Aurangzeb, the cruelest of all Muslim kings not only
beheaded Guru Tegh Bahadur, but also murdered four gallant sons of Guru
Gobind Singh. Two elder sons, Sahibzade Ajit Singh and Junjhar Singh
attained martyrdom in 1704 during the battle of Chamkaur Sahib, while
the younger sons Fateh Singh and Zorawar Singh were bricked alive in
1705 at Sirhind by Faujdar Wazir Khan, under orders of Aurangzeb.
with the invasion of Sind by Muhammad bin Qasim in 712 A.D. the next
900 years witnessed a relentless onslaught by hordes of Muslim invaders
pouring in through Khyber and Bolan passes. Among the barbaric murderers
and freebooters were Mahmud Ghazanvi, Muhammad Ghauri, Babur, Ahmad
Shah Abdali and Nadir Shah. In fact, Guru Nanak has given in the Babur
Vani a vivid description of the atrocities committed by invaders on the
hapless Hindus of Punjab and north-western India. According to the
eminent historian, Will Durant, "the Mohammedan conquest of India is
perhaps the bloodiest story of history". He calls it a discouraging
tale, for its only lesson was that civilization is a precarious thing,
whose delicate complex of order and liberty, culture and peace could be
overthrown at any time by barbarians invading from without and
multiplying within." [Source: Will Durant, The Story of Civilization,
Part I, p. 459].
A detailed narrative of the tyranny and
atrocities committed by Muslim invaders was given by a well known Muslim
author and thinker, Rizwan Salim, who wrote in The Hindustan Times, New
Delhi, on December 28, 1997, an article titled, "What the invaders
really did?" justifying the demolition of Babri Masjid in 1992. Rizwan
Salim highlighted that the wrecking of Hindu temples went on from the
early years of the eighth century to well past 1700 A.D. a period of
almost 1000 years. [Source : The Hindustan Times, New Delhi, December
28, 1997]. Every Muslim ruler of Delhi (or Governor of the Province)
spent most of his time fighting the Hindu kings in the north and the
south, the east and west. Rizwan continues emphasizing that "savages at a
very low level of civilization and no culture worth the name began
entering India from the early eighth century onwards. Islamic invaders
demolished Hindu temples, destroyed unaccountable sculptures and idols,
plundered innumerable palaces and forts of the Hindu kings, killed vast
number of Hindu men and carried off Hindu women. This story, the
educated – and lot of even the illiterate Indians – know very well. The
history books recount it in a remarkable detail. [Source: Ibid].
