This ia fact which you don't want to hear that millions of Budhs were massacred forcing them to go into exile, right after the Emperor Ashok, was that exodus caused by the Hindus for the love of Budhs?

About killing of the Hindus at the hands of Muslims you went back quite far to Tamur, I must tell you that I have no knowledge of that period but Tamur was from the side of Chengez Khan he did similar things to Muslim countries also which fought with him and resisted him.

The partirion of India was a big conspiracy by the British to divide and rule India. What about the first war of independence from the Britishers of 1857, half of the Maharani Jhansi's army was Muslim her Generals were Hindus and Muslims alike her personal body guard was a muslim by the name of Gul Mohammad. The Britishers conquered India with the help of Indian they did not bring million of soldiers from Britain.

I did not touch the casteism of the Hindu religion which is equivalent to the aparthied of South Africa. and which is practiced as we are communicating with each other. During the ancient times if somebody reciting Bhagvad Gita and if a Dalit hear him reciting he used to be subjected to pouring molten lead in his ears. Even now one hear and read that they are subjected to various humiliations atrocities. I suggest you to read a book written by Barbara Crossette on India who was New York Times correspondent for several years and was posted in Delhi she has described what she saw the treatment of the Dalits with her own eyes and read in the news while she was in India. I suggest you to go on some Dalits website and see the reflection of your great civilization I am sure you'll feel very proud of yourself. I come from a mixed family of Hindus and Muslims, one of my grand mothers cousin married to Brahmin of U.P. who became Chief Minister of U.P. in mid 50's.
