Exposing untold history of Mughal Islamic invaders

Mughal Islamic invaders entered India posing as innocent refugees. But gradually they started showing their nasty fangs thus establishing reign of terror and continuing vicious war on India’s cultural heritage, region and historic installations. In today’s India, agents of radical Islam are crying foul with the ridiculous claim of “Islamophobia”, and has been demonizing Hindus and their religious values and sentiment. Agents of radical Islam are spending millions of dollars towards demonizing Hindus and their religious sentiment. Majority of the media outlets in the country have already sold their souls to the forces of radical Islam and jihad. They are playing the roles of concubine of anti-Hindu forces and continuously conspiring in pushing India towards the dark era of Mughal Islamic rule.

Mughal of Turkic-Mongol origin ruled most of northern India from early 16th to the mid-18th century thus establishing reign of terror. These rulers went into numerous forms of attacks on Hindu populace thus destroying hundreds of religious and historic sites. Although the leftist scholars and historians project Moghul dynasty as secularists and “noble rulers”, in reality it has been one of the cruelest Islamists.

The Moghul dynasty was founded by a Chagatai Turkic named Bābur (reigned 1526-30), who was descended from the Turkic conqueror Timur (Tamerlane) on his father’s side and from Chagatai, second son of the Mongol ruler Genghis Khan, on his mother’s side. Bābur’s father, ʿUmar Shaykh Mīrzā, ruled the small principality of Fergana to the north of the Hindu Kush mountain range.

In 1504 he conquered Kabul and Ghaznī and established himself there. In 1511 he captured Samarkand, only to realize that, with the formidable Safavid dynasty in Iran and the Uzbeks in Central Asia, he should rather turn to the southeast toward India to have an empire of his own. As a Timurid, Bābur had an eye on the Punjab, part of which had been Timur’s possession. He made several excursions in the tribal habitats there. Between 1519 and 1524—when he invaded Bhera, Sialkot, and Lahore—he showed his definite intention to invade Hindustan.

In India, leftist forces oftentimes propagate secular views to reinforce the leftist, holier-than-thou image that they feel is fashionable and separates them from what they condescendingly view as the “underclass”. This is particularly prevalent in the US where causes such as “Islamophobia” are zealously adopted to appear sincere, humane and in lockstep with the kinder, gentler folk among the populace. Elements of radical Islam and jihad are not only seen vocal within Indian literary and cultural arena, they also are seen in Bollywood, the world’s biggest film industry. Certain actors within it conveniently parrot orthodoxies that completely skew historical fact within the prism of their own deluded minds. A latest comment by Naseeruddin Shah stating that the Mughal invaders of India did not really perpetrate atrocities against the native Hindu population, that they were not tyrants, that they gifted their captured subjects with dancing, music, painting and that they could even be classed as refugees.

Naseeruddin Shah is well known in Bollywood films for over forty years and has occasionally popped up in Western movies here and there. He’s starred in movies with Maggie Gylenhaal, Stellan Skarsgård, and even the legendary Sean Connery. He belongs to that veteran pantheon of Bollywood actors who, like a De Niro or Robert Redford, think that they know more than the humble folk simply because they are wealthier and move in circles of lobbyists and elite parties that give them the space to spout off on history, culture and politics.

In an interview with Karan Thapar, Naseeruddin Shah said, Mughal invaders were benevolent, cultured, kind, and actually were in need of assistance and refuge in an unwashed, uneducated India that needed them. In the 33-seconds long clip, Shah expresses dismay and anguish over people constantly belittling Islamic rule in India as a bad thing.

The Bollywood actor went further by denying atrocities perpetrated by the Mughals and even rejected to call Mughals as tyrants. He is of the opinion that Mughals consolidated India with their ‘contribution’. Naseeruddin Shah cites Mughals’ dancing, music, painting, and literature as evidence of all the wonderful things they brought to India and that they were actually hard done by because they left their original Arabian homelands to make new homes in a foreign land. As if invasion by loot, plunder, rape, extortion, bribery, slaughter, and bloodshed was an inconvenience to them in claiming asylum.

He said: “The so-called atrocities of the Mughals are being highlighted all the time. We forget that Mughals are people who have contributed immensely to the country.  They are people who have left lasting monuments in the country…who have left traditions of dancing, music, painting, and literature. Mughals came here to make this their homeland. You can call them refugees if you like”.

According to historical fact, Mughals were raiders who survived on looting territories. Their whole existence was based on genocides of the local population of the area they raided. They murdered Hindus if they refused to convert to Islam, leaving those behind to pay a heavy Jizya tax simply to survive. Their last known tyrant, Aurangzeb, is particularly infamous for this. Refugees are those who are stateless, not those whose hobbies revolve around invading other countries and their cultures.

Indian historian Professor K.S. Lal estimates that the Hindu population in India decreased by 80 million between 1000 AD and 1525 AD, an extermination that is simply unparalleled in world history. This slaughter occurred over regular periods during many centuries of Arab, Afghan, Turkish and Mughal rule in India.

But, secularists, leftists and agents of radical Islam are not ready to accept this historical fact. Instead, they have been making frantic bids of glorifying Moghul invaders similarly as they make attempts of whitewashing threats posed by radical Islamic ideology.
