    1. Thanks! Mahmud Ghazni was a nasty piece of work.

      He is 100x shittier than ISIS. There is so much outrage over ISIS destroying Palmyra ruins. Mahmud of Ghazni demolished thousands of Hindu temples, Jain viharas and Buddhist monasteries, and butchered everyone along with it.

      Mahmud of Ghazni was a war criminal.

  5. hi Subhodeep,
    Thanks for your reply.

    No, I dont have any link.
    I was just wondering that, what Mr. Ashwin said in his book was all fictional or was it true.

    I have just complected reading the book, which name is "the krishna key" By Mr. Ashwin Sanghi" . A fiction historical book. In his book ; Mr. bingley says that "Yadava settlements were at Indraprastha and Dwarka After the death of Krishna, many of the Yadavas were driven out of India, founded Ghazni(" Capital of Mahmud Gazni's Ampire") in Afghanistan and ruled over the whole of theat country and portions of Central Asia as far north as Samarkan. "Where Yadavas migrated to five thousand years ago. thus the later Muslim rulers of this region were themselves of Yadava lineage"

    A H Bingley , hand book on rajputs..

  7. @Subhodeep Mukhopadhyay- It really unfortunate to have put India in such a dark past in our history books. Could you also throw more light or your perspective as in why our past rulers failed to protect our states from Ghazni's barbarism? What dared him to repeat his abominable actions 17times

    1. Our rules and decency were our biggest enemies.
      1. Hindus fought wars only in day time - Muslims had no such rules, and attacked only at night.
      2. Hindus always fought war in war-kshetras outside the city/ town, they never attacked villages - Arab barbarians had no such rules, they used to pillage and burn town after town.
      3. Hindu warriors fought with one-another - women, children and Brahmins were never part of war. Islamic middle-eastern savages would attack/ rape women, sodomoize/ take children as slaves, kill the Brahmins.

      Hindus failed against Islamic savagery and brutality.
