    sir what is written that muslim ruler had upper hand over hindu ruler but this depicted one side story.
    first coming from foreign land and looting it is easier but to consolidate any empire and kingdom not possible without local support and seeing present day demography of india and thoroughly studying medieval period history i think to talk cruelity of muslim over hindu only depicting one side story and not balanced and scientific explanation.

      P Tiwari has not understood the system of govt of the Sultanate and Mughal period.The system was based on military power which was nearly impossible to question, leave alone overthrow. A defeated and desperate people, unarmed(and disarmed) could offer no resistance and meekly slaved on for generation after generation. The classes that could offer resistance were annihilated. The accounts of the Slave dynasty’s depredations are well documented.Men were put to the sword,women were sold into sexual slavery and children were sent to the Madrassas become true Muslims and to work the Karkhanas..A massive traffic grew in slaves to Central Asia. The high range between India and Afganistan came to be known as Hindukush because a large number of Indian slaves perished on its passes.Hindus were prohibited from bearing arms.The sultanate had an effective military/administrative system which could not be challenged. The Turks made repeated attempts to eliminate the Hindu elite and almost succeeded.People fled to the forests. It was when they realised that their revenues suffered that they rellented and allowed Hindus to return to till the land( under extortionist taxation). It took Indians several centuries to organise themselves and start offering resistance .Can one imagine Hindus not being allowed to practice their faith in public.IEvery temple was destroyed. Almost all important temples in India standing today were built during the British period.The most sacred spot of Hinduism-The Gyanvapi is constructed over by a mosque. The history taught to our children is not the true history of our land.

    Thanks Tarek.
    Hindu Kush mountain ranges on Afghan border mean Hindu killed, and a permanent memorial to india holocaust caused by islamic invaders over 800 years.
    Thanks you for initiating the removal of aurangzeb road, that butcher being honoured is astounding.
