You are right saying about Crusaders and Muslim invaders. Muslim invaders destroyed the first University of world which was called Nalanda and was in Bihar.There were more than 10000 students who were studying not only Buddhism but also philosophy,civics and also other subjects.The library was packed with millions of books and when muslim invaders burned it. the smoke was coming from the library for 3 months history says. They killed all the monks and also many students, nearly 10000 got killed at that time.

During the time of Buddha there were 5 gurus including him. Everybody preached their own religion without any problem as the king respected democracy.India was the first country to practise democracy under the kingdom of Lichchavi princes. Muslim invasions destroyed these values forever and forced people to be converted.Millions got killed by them in the name of the god.

I challenge them to read history and understand the facts about invasions and Christian crusades.
