Obviously not, neither they could, as it is forbidden in Quran where God words are that 'there is no compulsion in religion'. Example of following words of Quran 'there is no compulsion in religion' can be seen in historical facts. For instance, India was under Muslim rule for more than 1200 years still India do not even have Muslim majority. Even Sindh that was first area came under Muslim rule have large Hindu population.

As for Indonesia and Malaysia, both of them were never got occupied by Muslims still it has Muslim majority. Even countries like Egypt and Syria, that were under Muslim rule since last 1400 years still have Christian population. Now compare that with western christian colonial occupation and we will see forced conversion at many places. So, please stick with historical truth and forget propaganda..
