Dr. Pipes

I want to bring to your attention that Nalanda University, which was a center of Buddhist learning and was destroyed looted and the books torched by the invading Muslim Turks of India under the leadership of Bakhtiyar Khilji in 1193 CE, is back in business albeit with a small class of 15 students

Now there was also a report from the BBC about it

http://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-india-29008765

And notice that the BBC tells us that the university was destroyed by unnamed invaders of India but the article never identifies who were really those invaders

The author of the article should be ashamed of himself

But again the truth never goes away
