Presentation based on a book by SITA RAM GOEL
The ancient past of India is so great that it simply cannot be over-glorified. Gupta age was the Golden age of Hindu history when Hindu spirituality, art, literature, science and philosophy attained an acme which has not since been surpassed. It was a period of greatness in which people can take pride and when its creativity attained a pinnacle.

It is recommended that "Muslim rulers cannot be identified as foreigners except for those who did not settle here.” Mahmud Ghaznavi and Muhammad Ghuri are to be treated as foreign invaders simply because they launched there invasions from Afghanistan. But not the Mamluks, the Khiljis, the Tughlaqs, the Lodis, the Suras, & the Mughals who brought the loot to Delhi from other parts o the country.
After the downfall of Mughal Empire, The Rajputs, the Jats, the Sikhs and the Marathas were rising up to reclaim their lost patrimony in their own homeland. The Muslim chieftains were inviting other Islamic imperialists from across the border to come and rescue the earlier Islamic imperialist out of the chaos. The British, the French and other foreign were taking advantage of the ineptitude of the native & Muslim princes in order to secure their strangleholds.
Facts of the recorded History by Muslim Historians.Language of records itself speaks that they took immense pride in doing what they did.
Hindu princes fought many wars but they had observed some time- honored conventions sanctioned by the Shastras. They never molested Brahmins & Bhikshus The cows were not killed The chastity of women was never violated. The non-combatant were never killed or captured. The civil population was never plundered.
Islamic imperialism came with different code- the Sunnah of Prophet. The cows, the Brahmins, the Bhikshus invited their special attention in mass murders of non-combats. After the victory, it required them to sack & burn down villages & town & the cities were plundered. The temples & monasteries were destructed. Those whom they did not kill, they captured & sold as slaves.
Islamic invaders wee not the first foreigners to come and settle down in India. In earlier times, the Iranians, the Greeks, the Parthians, the Scythians, the Kushans, and the Huns had also invaded India, and settled down here. But we have never had an Iranians, or a Greek, or a Parthian, or a Scythian, or a Kushan, or a Hun or a Mongolian minority, or culture, or problem.
None of the Hindu Saints questioned its claim as an alternative path of salvation. None of them could see that the Kalimah- there is no god but Allah & Muhammad is his last prophet- could emanate only from a beastly rather than a religious consciousness. A majority of the Muslims were Hindu converts who had been forced into the folds of Islam. Hindu society closed its doors to them.
Hindus failed to organize a collective effort to guard the frontiers of Bharatvarsha. The sterile statecraft was centered on the politics of the mandalayoni, one’s neighbor was always an enemy, & the enemy of enemy always a friend.
Each of Hindu prince was busy with his immediate neighbors. An awareness of what was happening in neighboring lands was not needed by them. Islam provided an ample opportunity to Hindu saints, philosophers & princes to understand the true character of Islam. But neither Hindu saints, nor the philosophers, nor the princes could not draw any worthwhile conclusions about the character of Islam.
