Couldn't get this article to display. But no matter; the historical fact of the list (extremely incomplete) of grotesque tortures affected by Muslims on those refusing to convert to Islam says enough.

Also, Muslim atrocities on those killed or defeated in combat:

  • Prithviraj Chauhan, defeated at Second Battle of Tarain in 1192 (he had won the First Battle one year earlier against same opponent, and allowed opponent to leave in keeping with Rajput battle-honour code). It is said that Shahabuddin Ghori decided to have him grotesquely tortured as Prithviraj had actually commissioned a carving of "Varaha (boar) killing Hiranyaksha" where the Hiranyaksha*** appeared to be modelled after Ghori.
  • Nand Singh, a 33-year old naik (corporal) of Indian army, KIA @ Uri in 1947; his body was taken by Pakistanis to Muzafarrabad, thrown onto a rubbish-tip and much-abused
Contrastingly, treatment of battle-killed by non-Muslims:
  • India had Army's top Muslim cleric choppered in to bury infiltrators (revealed later to be from Pakistan's NLI) killed in 1999 Kargil War--and even had media coverage of some
  • German WW1 ace pilot Manfred von Richtoffen, when shot down in 1918/04/21) was buried by British with full military honours
  • best of all was treatment of Canadian WW2 hero Buzz Beurling by Italians after Beurling was murdered in Rome 1948/05/20; initially, buried in Rome as "Colonel Giorgio Beurling" (Beurling had never achieved a rank greater than Flight Lieutenant--equivalent to Captain in Italian AF--during his military career)--significant when many of the 31 kills that Beurling had racked-up over Malta were of ItAF aircraft
