I do not know why nobody does research on how the last Majapahit hindu emperium, suddenly changed to be muslims? We Indonesians only told that Majapahit emperium was conguered by islam using peace? Actually it's a big lie, because only 5 centuries ago, there was exodust of the last Majapahit emperium members, moving and scattered everywhere, hiding in isolate area, and 40 of them run away into a tiny island called BALI island. The 40 of the representative ancient thombs still exist in the mother temple of Besakih on the slope of Agung mountain, and their pedegree still exist, to be at least 2.5 millions Balinese people currently living in the island. Someone needs to study this matter.
