Muslims are still angry after 900 years over the death of Ghori. And Hindus? Do Hindus remember how young sons of Guru Govind Singh were buried alive under bricks and how Hindu women were raped by saneless Muslims? Do Hindus realize how Macaulay systematically brought change in their thinking towards their own culture? Do we realize how we were brutally controlled as slaves for centuries? These are much recent episodes than the death of Ghori who was no martyr but Muslim still hold him in reverence because he was a symbol of Muslim dominance. When will Hindus remove the garb of secularism and will show anger to what has been done to them for centuries? xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx/// http://www.dailytimes.com.pk/default.asp?page=story_1-8-2005_pg4_20 /// Monday, August 01, 2005 /// `Prithviraj grave in Afghanistan' /// NEW DELHI: While the legendary Rajput king Prithviraj Chauhan is a hero in India, his `grave' in Afghanistan is visited by the locals even today to vent their anger for killing Muhammed Ghori, 900 years ago says a new book. The book "Arms and Armour: Traditional Weapons of India" by E Jaiwant Paul says on the outskirts of Ghazni are two domed tombs. The larger was of Ghori and few meters away was a second smaller tomb of Prithviraj Chauhan. "In the centre of the second tomb was a bare patch of earth where the actual grave should have been. Hanging over this spot from the top of the dome is a long, thick rope ending in a knot at shoulder height. Local visitors would grab hold of this knot in one hand and stamp vigorously and repeatedly with one foot on the bare patch in the centre of the tomb," says Paul, a weapons collector. Paul, who saw this on his visit to Afghanistan says on seeking an explanation, he found that the Afghans still stamped on his grave because Prithviraj killed Ghori, 900 years ago, a PTI report said on Sunady. ..........................000000000
