Dear Dr Pipes, Thanks for educating me and the other readers about the Quwwat-ul-Islam mosque in Delhi. I was completely ignorant about its existence. The irony is that I have visited it personally. I knew it by its more popular name: "Qutub Minar". Only after reading your brief note about this mosque I research further and learned that Qutub Minar was also constructed over the created-ruins of Hindu and Jain temples. The monster that Muhammad unleashed in the 7th century by his own behavior continued its rampage for centuries after he died. In fact, the those who destroyed the existing temples to build this mosque were so shameless that wrote the tale of their destruction (i.e. their confession of the crime) in Persian script right on the Mosque.

The islamic rampage is still going on and the world is sleepwalking through history. With in the last 10 years, Muslims killed thousands of Yezidis. Within the last 20 years they had destroyed the Buddhas of Bamiyan. ANd, the tales of destructions by Muslims is written in every capital of the old world. I wonder how Muslims can live with their history in good conscience. But, then, so little I can justify about Islam.
