It took 500 years for establishment of Muslim rule i.e. 712-1206 and 150 for its decline into oblivion i.e. 1707-1857. Turning points of Mughal occupation are C.E. 712 when Muhammad bin Qasim invaded Sind, C.E. 1000 when Mahmud of Ghazni embarked upon a serial invasions on Bharata, C.E. 1192-1206 when Prithviraj Chauhan lost to Muhammad Ghauri and Qutbuddin Aibak raised Turki Sultanate at Delhi and C.E. 1296 when Alauddin Khalji pushed into the Deccans.
Stages of their downfall are C.E. 1707 when Aurangzeb died, C.E. 1739 when a trembling Mughal Occupier stood as a supplicant before Persian invader Nadir Shah, C.E. 1803 when Delhi was captured by British occupiers and C.E. 1858 when the last Mughal Occupier was expelled to Rangoon as a prisoner of British occupier.
Islam believes in dividing humanity into believers and Kafirs, Muslim community i.e.Ummah is enjoined upon not to cooperate on the basis of equality or peaceful coexistence with Kafirs. Islam offers some alternatives like conversion to Islam, slavery or death.
At best, Islam allows survival on payment of Jiziyah and acceptance of inferior status in society, that of Zimmi. As a matter of fact, Muslims invaded Bharata to turn it into an Islamic country and implant their culture, essentially a carrier culture borrowed from exotic streams.
Islam has only Koran and Hadis in the name of culture. They invaded not to co-exist but to wipe out Hindu culture. Their proclaimed objective was Islamization of Bharata through Jihad. However, in spite of repeated invasions and centuries of Muslim occupation, Bharata could not be turned into a Muslim country. Had Bharata been completely converted to Islam, we all would have been proud of organising Islamic revolutions, spearheading pan-Islamic movements and espousing despotic Islamic causes like Iranians / Libyans !!
An entirely irrational myth has been propagated that Mughal occupiers exerted a scintillating role in development of Bharatavarsa. Let us resolve the contentious issue of Islamic contributions to Bharatavarsa and Hindu society at large. We are poised to scrutinise a few disciplines of endeavour, the prominent ones that will demystify the issue forever.
Before invasion of Islam on Bharatiya soil, Bharata had as many as 20 large universities and some of them were of international stature. Prominent ones were Taksila, Nalanda, Sarada Pitha-s at Varanasi, Kanchipurama, Valabhi, Vikramsila, Jagaddala, Lalitgiri, Phuphagiri, Udayagiri, Odantapuri, Ratnagiri etc., where student from all over the world came to study Mathematics, Algebra, Astronomy Physics, Alchemy, Medicine, Anatomy, Surgery, Literature etc. As Muslim invaders progressed towards east, these Universities were extinguished by burning down one by one beginning with the largest and oldest Taksila, to the brutal destruction and burning of Nalanda by Bhaktiyar Khilji in 1193 AD. None of these monstrous invaders from Bin Qasim to Kutub-udin-Aibak to Babur to Aurangzeb to Nadir Shah, ever instituted even a single new University or center of learning. We challenge apologists of Islam to cite even a single instance when an educational institution of repute was raised from ground zero brick by brick.
Irrigation & Agriculture
Irrigation projects and canal building were undertaken by Hindu Kings all over Bharata. Kingdoms constructed water tanks for irrigation, infrastructure to harvest rain water, some of which are still in use today for farming. Farmers had perfected the art of irrigation using Phada i.e. river water diverted into fields and Badha i.e. overflowing river, tank or lake breached to irrigate fields besides other mechanical methods still used today. Intellectually stunted Islamic apologists derive great pleasure in berating Vijaynagar empire, their achievements and rejoice in their destruction by resorting to an absurd decadence theory. Vijaynagar was one of the first welfare states in the world if not the only one.
Kingdom paid from treasury for entire empire-wide water works to ensure running water for their subjects. Even today, remnants of aqueducts / network may be examined in southern Bharata of that era. Kings of Vijaynagar, particularly Krishnadeva Raya, personally engineered and supervised construction of a damn across Tungabhadra, still used even now. In cities like Bhopal, huge natural lakes were maintained by Hindu Kings for fish farming and irrigation for farmers which were drained by Mughal’s to play polo. Mughals did not construct even a single such project during their entire period of occupation of Bharata.
