There are those who try to negate or downplay the real intention of the Islamic invaders, or say that the damage they did, and the cruelty and savagery they displayed, was not that bad. However, some of the Muslim historians have left records, some of which are quite detailed, of the atrocities they committed in their day-to-day accounts of what happened in their numerous encounters with Hindus. These cannot be denied or argued about when we read them as they are. After studying these texts, Sita Ram Goel, in his book The Story of Islamic Imperialism in India, explains:
The dominant theme in these accounts is of mu’mins (Muslims) martyred; of kafirs (Hindus infidels) dispatched to hell; of cities and citadels sacked; of citizens massacred; of Brahmins killed or forced to eat beef; of temples razed to the ground and mosques raised on their sites; of idols broken and their pieces taken to imperial headquarters for being trodden underfoot by the faithful on the steps of the main mosque; of booty captured and carried away on the elephants, camels, horses, bullock carts, on the backs of sheep and goats, and even on the heads of Hindu prisoners of war; of beautiful Hindu maidens presented to the sultans and distributed among Muslim generals and nobles; of Hindu men, women and children sold into slavery in markets all over the Islamic world; and of kafirs converted to the “true faith” at the point of the sword. The Muslim historians treat every war waged against the Hindus as a jihad as enjoined by the Prophet and the Pious Caliphs.
In these Muslim accounts, we never notice any note of pity, or regret, or reflection over deeds of wanton cruelty and rapacity. On the contrary, the Muslim historians express extreme satisfaction and gleeful gratitude to Allah that the mission of the Prophet has been fulfilled, the light of Islam brought to an area of darkness, and idolatry wiped out. These historians go into raptures over the richness of the booty acquired for the service of the Islamic state, for distribution among the mujahids and the ulama and the Sufis, for the promotion of Islamic learning, and for securing the seats of Islamic power.
……..The time while Hindus were under Muslim rulers was indeed a most dark period for them. The Muslim histories, such as the Tarikh-i-Wassaf, describe that blood flowed in torrents as the slaughter of Hindus increased for the sake of Islam. They took all the gold and silver they could, and all other forms of treasure and valuables, mostly from the temples which had been built up by the Hindus through their devotion to God. An uncountable number of beautiful maidens and children of both sexes were taken captive. In this way, the Islamic armies brought the country to ruin for the inhabitants, and sacked numerous cities. The deities in the temples were broken, and the fragments were often taken to Delhi to become pavement in the entrance way to the Jami Masjid mosque for the “faithful” to trample on them.
