Muhd.Anees Look back at Islam's history - the death toll of Islamic conquests were recorded by Muslims themselves - unless they were bragging/lying - about the things Hindus and Buddhist were forced to undergo - they only stopped because it was more profitable to collect the jizya tax from the non-believers - than to live in poverty - by ruling over believers of Islam who paid no such tax! As well as millions were enslaved - many transported to Baghdad slave markets - others forcibly converted and turned back on India to wage more jihad - to either kill or convert others - it was no small event.

The only thing Christians don't do is try to cleanse their history but instead look to learn from it so that they don't go through that was again. Which is the very reason why Islam and its ideologies of religious domination are meeting with so much resistance in the West . What is happening in Pakistan and in Saudi Arabia and increasingly in Egypt, Indonesia and Malaysia have already happened in the Christian world - When you come with your Islam means 'peace' and 'goodness' with the sword to enforce it on the other - we have seen that before - It took Muslims 900 years to conquer Persia . that means a lot of people died - and we know that 80 million is a moderate estimate of the numbers killed to bring Islam to India - historians are saying 100 million easy -

Recently Muslims in India petitioned the court to have these historic facts erased on the grounds that they were offensive to Islam. the court said NO !! Muslims need to learn from their history and change their ways !! You are not fooling anyone! We can read the Koran and see what Muhammed did and believed too !! But without the sword to our necks many may not come to the same conclusion as you and your conquered people have !!
