in response to reader comment: Mecca And Medina History

Submitted by Amin Riaz (United Kingdom), Aug 31, 2014 at 13:30

"The history of Mecca and Medina is also the history of Hindu Flight from Middle east to Indian Subcontinent."

Er... no it isn't. Hindu's did not come from Arabia. Moajority Indians are Indo-Aryans of European decsent. Hinduism existed in India far ealier than this.

- -

"Kaaba was a Hindu Temple"

Incorrect. It was a Pagan Temple.

- -

"The main priest of that tempe was Abdalla (father of Muhammad)"

Huh? Did you make all of these up? Or do you have a source for this re-invention?

- -

"The meaning of Abdalla is Abd of Alla or Slave of Alla. The main deity was Allat ."

So how did you jump from "Allah" to "Allat"? The word "Ilah" is a common semitic root simply meaning God.

- -

"Now the haj and its customs are exactly the same as that of Hindu rituals in a Siva temple ."


Clearly they are not same at all...

- -

"Now During Muhammad's period Saudi Arabia was dwelt by Hindus (Pagans)"

Lol! Pagans and Hindus are 2 completely different things.

All Hindus are Pagans

All Pagans are not Hindu.
