Jihad in its extreme form

Reader comment on item: Jihad and the Professors

Submitted by Radhakrishna Varma (United States), Nov 9, 2002 at 01:46

Anyone wishing to know more about Jihad needs only to visit India. Indian culture was ravaged for more than 1000 years by marauding Jihadis. The brutish Turko-Mongol Taimurlang enjoyed building pyramids of severed KAFIR human heads. His army once killed over 100,000 Kafirs in a matter of a couple of days and built gigantic pyramids to terrorize the population. Hundreds of thousands of Kafir Hindus were taken away as slaves to be sold in the slave markeds of West and Central Asia. So much for the "compassionate" and "egalitarian" nature of Islam.

Tens of thousands of Hindu temples were razed to the ground and their remains used to construct mosques. The most tragic destruction was that of the Hindu-Buddhist university at Nalanda. Thousands of precious manuscripts were burned and hundreds of scholars and monks slaughtered.

It is a wonder that anyone resisted the Islamic assault on Hindus and Buddhists in India. Either you converted to Islam or you were put to the sword in the most horrifying possible way.

All of this is history, of course. The majority of Muslims today do live in peace. Perhaps they do so because they consciously, or otherwise, ignore the central tenets of Islam which are considered immutable. Many of these tenets do advocate violence against Kafirs. Unfortunately, many young men seem to want to return to the violent roots of Islam today, funded especially by inimical interests in the Middle East.
