Mahmud of Ghazni (11th century)

Mahmud of Ghazni was a Sultan who invaded the Indian subcontinent from present-day Afghanistan during the early 11th century. His campaigns included plundering and destruction of Hindu temples such as those at Mathura, Dwarka, and others. In 1024 AD, Mahmud of Ghazni attacked and destroyed the third Somnath temple killing over 50,000 and personally destroying the Shiva lingam after stripping it of its gold.[37][38] The historian Al Utbi narrated the violence as,
“ The infidel remained where he was, avoiding action for a long time. The Sultan would not allow him to postpone the conflict, and the friends of God commenced action, setting upon the enemy with sword, arrow and spear - plundering, seizing and destroying. The Hindus began to fight. Swords flashed like lightning amid the blackness of clouds and fountains of blood flowed like the fall of setting stars. Noon had not arrived when the Musulmans had wrecked their vengeance on the infidel enemies of God, killing 15,000 of them, spreading them like a carpet over the ground, and making them food for beasts and birds of prey. God bestowed upon Sultan's friends such an amount of booty as was beyond all bounds and all calculation, including five hundred thousand slaves, beautiful men and women. The Sultan returned to his camp, having plundered immensely, by God's aid. This took place on 27th November 1001.
– Abu Nasr Muhammad ibn Muhammad al Jabbaru-l 'Utbi (al-Utbi), Táríkh Yamini[39] ”
Mahmud of Ghazni made at least sixteen raids into India, against Hindus. Each campaign witnessed religious violence, killing of thousands of people, plunder and Mahmud returning with Hindu slaves and loot. The lives of numerous Muslims and Hindus were lost. For his sixth raid of 1008 AD, the Hindu kingdoms of Ujjain, Gwaliar, Kalinjar, Kanauj, Delhi and Ajmer formed a coalition to resist the attack by Muslim army of Ghazni. Hindu females sold their jewelry and put labor into providing war supplies. The sixth war erupted in the fields of Punjab, where Ghazni troops had entered through Afghanistan. Thousands of Turk-Afghan Muslim soldiers were killed within the first hour. In the chaos of the battles, armies fled in different directions, and thousands of Hindus were hacked to death by the retreating army.[40] In the sixteenth campaign, Mahmud raided Gujarat and Sindh region of South Asia, and destroyed Somnath temple. more

Sarma Ji If you see the poor Condition of Hindu since 1945 Still India is Getting Ruled by MUSLIMS only by Changing their Names as Surname keeping only MUSLIMS ETHICS and having Controls over all Govt. Affairs and Private Affairs in their Hands so made NEW DELHI as CAPITAL.ALL Surnames in NORTH INDIA are MUSLIM SURNAMES and all BUSINESS Surnames as BANIYAS are also MUSLIM in NATURE. So no body Wants to FIGHT with MUSLIMS or to PAKISTAN because all INDIAN Management and BUSINESS were MUSLIMS only so they follow PAKISTAN as IDEAL COUNTRY but JUST Fooling the HINDU LABOURS & WORKERS only. So only Poor INDIANS are Maintaining HINDU religion in NORTH INDIA. more  
Sarma ji I have my Personal Experience if you see also in all Govt. and Private Banks all Thieves Communities of INDIA are working as honest Employees in INDIA all keep Records of Each family those does not belong to them and do all Criminology accordingly by making their community Groups against others. All keeps Eyes on others accounts and so follows them and do all sort of SCAMS & CORRUPTIONS on only such Grounds. Those not Capable also do such Practices in BANKS. more  
Sarma Ji If you see Carefully all States of India Touching BORDER of PAKISTAN are also mostly having Muslims Characters in them as Prime Values take Example of JUMMU & KASHMIR,PUNJAB,RAJASTHAN,GUJARAT,HARAYANA,HIMACHAL also you will find same like MUSLIM Characters though they Claims they are HINDU,Who know in this area What is the Meaning of HINDU or MUSLIMS thats why in South KERALA like state and some other Feels to be good and Prosperous by opting for the other religions as their Financial Supports.What are the Values and systems of HINDU culture in INDIA all are divide on their Types and Languages no body having the sense of Unity and Integrity in them and not even PROGRESSIVE in NATURE also. What is Happening in PAKISTAN the same is Happening in INDIA then How can you say INDIA is a Non-Muslim Country. Since for the last 70 yrs WHAT our HINDU Population doing in INDIA.All Wants to maintain their philosophy in Govt.& Private Sectors by Depriving others as like thieves or Criminal Groups in their own country. more  
Some Strong political Parties though not some times possess power to rule , have been purposefully instigating and even creating Fake events or even Spreading rumors that have been becoming revolts routing public unrest . Since the Governments have been grossly failing in enforcement of Law and Order , and , since the Investigation and Vigilance Teams of Police also converted to dilution from their basic duties pulled the situation inspiring naturally some at least . The issues and situations are only due to the failure of implementing the Laws of the Land beside the Laws of the Constitution purposefully carrying the Caste based System and Religion based options GROSSLY IGNORING THE ISSUE OF UNIFORM CIVIL CODE EVEN AFTER 1991 where the Congress Party set a Deaf ear and Blind eye to the Directions of the Supreme Court in that year year itself . THIS IS THE ROUTE CAUSE AND ROOT CAUSE FOR MANY ILLS OPTED SELFISHLY BY THAT PARTY PLEASE . more
