This is what our dear scottindallas who is really another lost tablighee

But, Muslims didn't burn the world's great libraries, that's a Christian thing,

So far we kuffar have established that Muslim historians tell us that Amr ibn al-As DID BURN the library of Alexnadria as per orders from no other than Omar al-Farooq aka Omar ibn al-Khatab himslef right O glorious madrassa graduate? So is this true of were Muslim historians a bunch of liars you tell us

And how about the fact that we are told that muslims as per orders from no other than Uthman ordered the burning of Qur'ans yes Qur'ans that were at vraiance with his so called Uthmanic codex! And you tell us that Muslims do not burn books?

We are also told by Muslim historians that Muslims did burn the great Zoroastrian library in Ctesiphon so is that correct our dear scottindallas or are Muslim historians a bunch of liars

Now this time let us talk about the burning of the books and the destruction of the great Buddhist library at Nalanda in India and guess who did it? Let me help you Muslims and no other that the criminal Bakhtiyar Khilji and in the process he destroyed Buddhism in its place of birth and that is India so read and feel sorry for the lost human heritage

In 1193, the Nalanda University was sacked by[12] the fanatic Bakhtiyar Khilji, a Turk;[13] this event is seen by scholars as a late milestone in the decline of Buddhism in India. The Persian historian Minhaj-i-Siraj, in his chronicle the Tabaqat-I-Nasiri, reported that thousands of monks were burned alive and thousands beheaded as Khilji tried his best to uproot Buddhism and plant Islam by the sword[14] the burning of the library continued for several months and "smoke from the burning manuscripts hung for days like a dark pall over the low hills."[15]

So were Muslim historians a bunch of liars or is this true you tell us

What is most savage is that this Muslim thug asked his fellow thugs and criminals: "is there a Qur'an in this library?" and when he was told no he ordered that the place is to be torched

And if Muslim are a bunch of liars why should we believe any claim in Islamic history including that an Arabian deity called Allah spoke to an Arabian warlord and caravan raider via an angel you tell me

And you come here and you tell us Oh no Muslims do not burn books or libraries

Now you tell me how come you did not know that? Could it be you really did not know but in this case you are and you must pardon me ignorant or you knew and it was all islamic BS and you were hoping that we kuffar do not know but in this case you would be and you must pardon me a liar so which one is it you tell me

Shame on you
