"Bamian action is not a good example I agree but it shows the reaction of Muslims who saw Babri Masjid fall helplessly be lunitics of what you called a secular democratic state. May be you have forgotten the bloodshed in Ahmedabad India where the court also confirmed that Mr. Modi the Chief Minister of that time supported the extremists to kill innocent Muslims in that city and burn them alive. What a shame, your eyes are closed on this issue"

Sultan Sikhander Lodi (1489-1517) in Ahmed Yadgar's Tarikh i Shahi:

"Sultan Sikhander led a very pious life................Islam was regarded very highly in his regime. The infidels could not muster enough courage to worship idols or bathe in the (sacred) streams. During his holy reign, idols were hidden underground. The stone (idol) of Nagarkot, whihc had misled the (whiole) world was brought and handed over to the butchers so that they weigh meat with it. "

This is a sample; Sitaram Goel makes a 360 page list of what the historians of Islamic period say about how the Hindu temples were demolished. History records that more than 3 million temples were demolished/plundered by the muslim barbarians. Why Bamian Buddhas, recently the muslims in Pakistan demolished two more ancient Buddha statues in Swat area; if they have given the land to the Gujaratis, it would have been converted into a great holiday resort. In Pakistan, after 1947, it is estimated more than 30,000 temples have been demolished; similar achievement by Bangladeshi muslims. Malaysia is considered to be a moderate muslim state and they have demolished more than 300 temples during the last three years.

Regarding the Gujarat riots, why do the muslims carry out a Godhrs first and the riots are acts of constructive retalliation. In 1947, the Hindu population was 18% and it is reduced to 2% today; Islam has vaporised the balance. 800 dead in Gujarat is an insignificant response.
