Amir:Dont you know how much politically correct and liberal are college professors and appease whoever gives the bigger grant. And you know who has the most loose cash these days and who gains the most by sanitizing islamic record and faith? Yes Saudi Arabia.

I am sure you must have heard of Prof. Sells of Universiry of North Carolina who wrote a book on Quran with only peaceful Mecca ayas and dropping all violent Madina ayas for University freshmen as an introductory course of islam. This is what Google writes:

"The University of North Carolina decided to familiarize its freshmen students with Islam. That is a noble thought. They chose a book called "Approaching the Qur'an: The Early Revelations,". But this apparently commendable act became highly controversial. It became controversial because that book does not represent the whole truth. The early revelation was written when Muhammad was weak and it does not include any of he violent and bloody verses of the Quran. Those verses are in the later revelations, when Muhammad escaped to Medina and started to gain power through raiding caravans and killing the Jews and looting their belongings".
I bet Prof Sells had grabbed a big grant from Saudis.

You must have also heard of Prof Esposito of George Washington University who gets fat Saudi grants and writes apolegetic sanitized books on islam, which sell very well in all muslim countries. Both of them refused to reply when faithfreedom.org wrote to them. Dr Maurice Bucaile also wrote a book on Science in Quran after getting Saudi grant and made a lot of money selling his book , yet he never converted.

So much for intellectual honesty of college professors.

Here is what wikkepdia wrote about Qasim's Sindh adventure:
"The Umayyads claimed the attack was an attempt to rescue pilgrims that had been taken captive by pirates, though some experts regard this explanation as a pretext for invasion".

Do you really believe that rdiculous excuse of attacking Sindh and murdering thousands and thousands of men and capturing and raping thousands of women? Do you know that muslim sources indicate that over 20,000 captured hindu women , were sent back to Hajjaj Bin Yusuf who had sent Qasim as share of the booty (20% by quran). Do you even know who Hajjaj Bin Yusuf , Governer of Iraq and a close relative of Mohammad Bin Qasim.

Read on from a muslim source:
It is reported in Ta'rikh Ibn Qutaybah, that al-Hajjaj has killed in one day
more than seventy thousand muslims, till blood reached the door of the
mosque and the locks. Al-Tirmidhi says in his Sahih: On counting those
killed by al-Hajjaj, it was found that their number reached a hundred and
twenty thounsand.
This is the truth of al-Hajjaj, the culpritt who has violated all sanctities
of Allah, about whom the historians state that he has exceeded proper bounds
in slaying, torturing and mutilating the righteous and faithful men among
the Ummah, particularly the Shi'ah (followers) of the Prophet's Household,
who were inflicted with calamities that no other people suffered.

Ibn 'Asakir is reported to have said in his Tarikh, after mentioning those
killed by al-Hajjaj: After al-Hajjaj 's death, eighty thousand people,
including thirty thousand women have been found in his prison.
. His seige on the Hejaz resulted in the deaths of thousands of innocent
An Ummayyad leader once stated that if all the nations brought their most
tyrannical and evil rulers, the Muslims would only need to bring al-Hajjaj
to surpass the rest of the world's murderous rulers in evil".

Wake up Amir, stop apologising for muslims as they have bloody history like none other. Read Khalaf's post above.
Did Mahmood Ghaznavi, Taimor Lung , Babar, and all other vicious muslim invaders also invaded India, killed millions, pillaged and raped untold numbers to rescue pilgrims? Did muslims attack Iran, Spain, Egypt, Africa and all the surrounding countries to rescue pilgrims?

Remember the story of the lion killing the sheep down the river on the excuse that she was dirtying his drinking water?
