    With the invasion of India by Mahmud Ghazni about 1000 A.D., began the Muslim invasions into the Indian subcontinent and they lasted for several centuries. Nadir Shah made a mountain of the skulls of the Hindus he killed in Delhi alone. Babur raised towers of Hindu skulls at Khanua when he defeated Rana Sanga in 1527 and later he repeated the same horrors after capturing the fort of Chanderi. Akbar ordered a general massacre of 30,000 Rajputs after he captured Chithorgarh in 1568. The Bahamani Sultans had an annual agenda of killing a minimum of 100,000 Hindus every year.

    The history of medieval India is full of such instances. The holocaust of the Hindus in India continued for 800 years, till the brutal regimes were effectively overpowered in a life and death struggle by the Sikhs in the Panjab and the Hindu Maratha armies in other parts of India in the late 1700’s.

    We have elaborate literary evidence of the World’s biggest holocaust from existing historical contemporary eyewitness accounts. The historians and biographers of the invading armies and subsequent rulers of India have left quite detailed records of the atrocities they committed in their day-to-day encounters with India’s Hindus.

    These contemporary records boasted about and glorified the crimes that were committed – and the genocide of tens of millions of Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhist and Jainist, mass rapes of women and the destruction of thousands of ancient Hindu / Buddhist temples and libraries have been well documented and provide solid proof of the World’s biggest holocaust.

    Quotes from modern historians

    Dr. Koenraad Elst in his article “Was There an Islamic Genocide of Hindus?” states:

    “There is no official estimate of the total death toll of Hindus at the hands of Islam. A first glance at important testimonies by Muslim chroniclers suggests that, over 13 centuries and a territory as vast as the Subcontinent, Muslim Holy Warriors easily killed more Hindus than the 6 million of the Holocaust. Ferishtha lists several occasions when the Bahmani sultans in central India (1347-1528) killed a hundred thousand Hindus, which they set as a minimum goal whenever they felt like punishing the Hindus; and they were only a third-rank provincial dynasty.

    The biggest slaughters took place during the raids of Mahmud Ghaznavi (ca. 1000 CE); during the actual conquest of North India by Mohammed Ghori and his lieutenants (1192 ff.); and under the Delhi Sultanate (1206-1526).“

    He also writes in his book “Negation in India”:

    “The Muslim conquests, down to the 16th century, were for the Hindus a pure struggle of life and death. Entire cities were burnt down and the populations massacred, with hundreds of thousands killed in every campaign, and similar numbers deported as slaves. Every new invader made (often literally) his hills of Hindus skulls. Thus, the conquest of Afghanistan in the year 1000 was followed by the annihilation of the Hindu population; the region is still called the Hindu Kush, i.e. Hindu slaughter.”


    Will Durant argued in his 1935 book “The Story of Civilisation: Our Oriental Heritage” (page 459):

    “The Mohammedan conquest of India is probably the bloodiest story in history. The Islamic historians and scholars have recorded with great glee and pride the slaughters of Hindus, forced conversions, abduction of Hindu women and children to slave markets and the destruction of temples carried out by the warriors of Islam during 800 AD to 1700 AD. Millions of Hindus were converted to Islam by sword during this period.”

    Francois Gautier in his book ‘Rewriting Indian History’ (1996) wrote:

    “The massacres perpetuated by Muslims in India are unparalleled in history, bigger than the Holocaust of the Jews by the Nazis; or the massacre of the Armenians by the Turks; more extensive even than the slaughter of the South American native populations by the invading Spanish and Portuguese.”

    Alain Danielou in his book, Histoire de l’ Inde writes:

    “From the time Muslims started arriving, around 632 AD, the history of India becomes a long, monotonous series of murders, massacres, spoliations, and destructions. It is, as usual, in the name of ‘a holy war’ of their faith, of their sole God, that the barbarians have destroyed civilizations, wiped out entire races.”

    Irfan Husain in his article “Demons from the Past” observes:

    “While historical events should be judged in the context of their times, it cannot be denied that even in that bloody period of history, no mercy was shown to the Hindus unfortunate enough to be in the path of either the Arab conquerors of Sindh and south Punjab, or the Central Asians who swept in from Afghanistan…The Muslim heroes who figure larger than life in our history books committed some dreadful crimes. Mahmud of Ghazni, Qutb-ud-Din Aibak, Balban, Mohammed bin Qasim, and Sultan Mohammad Tughlak, all have blood-stained hands that the passage of years has not cleansed..Seen through Hindu eyes, the Muslim invasion of their homeland was an unmitigated disaster.

    “Their temples were razed, their idols smashed, their women raped, their men killed or taken slaves. When Mahmud of Ghazni entered Somnath on one of his annual raids, he slaughtered all 50,000 inhabitants. Aibak killed and enslaved hundreds of thousands. The list of horrors is long and painful. These conquerors justified their deeds by claiming it was their religious duty to smite non-believers. Cloaking themselves in the banner of Islam, they claimed they were fighting for their faith when, in reality, they were indulging in straightforward slaughter and pillage…”

    A sample of contemporary eyewitness accounts of the invaders and rulers, during the Indian conquests

    The Afghan ruler Mahmud al-Ghazni invaded India no less than seventeen times between 1001 – 1026 AD. The book ‘Tarikh-i-Yamini’ – written by his secretary documents several episodes of his bloody military campaigns : “The blood of the infidels flowed so copiously [at the Indian city of Thanesar] that the stream was discoloured, notwithstanding its purity, and people were unable to drink it…the infidels deserted the fort and tried to cross the foaming river…but many of them were slain, taken or drowned… Nearly fifty thousand men were killed.”

    In the contemporary record – ‘ Taj-ul-Ma’asir’ by Hassn Nizam-i-Naishapuri, it is stated that when Qutb-ul- Din Aibak (of Turko – Afghan origin and the First Sultan of Delhi 1194-1210 AD) conquered Meerat, he demolished all the Hindu temples of the city and erected mosques on their sites. In the city of Aligarh, he converted Hindu inhabitants to Islam by the sword and beheaded all those who adhered to their own religion.

    The Persian historian Wassaf writes in his book ‘Tazjiyat-ul-Amsar wa Tajriyat ul Asar’ that when the Alaul-Din Khilji (An Afghan of Turkish origin and second ruler of the Khilji Dynasty in India 1295-1316 AD) captured the city of Kambayat at the head of the gulf of Cambay, he killed the adult male Hindu inhabitants for the glory of Islam, set flowing rivers of blood, sent the women of the country with all their gold, silver, and jewels, to his own home, and made about twentv thousand Hindu maidens his private slaves.

    This ruler once asked his spiritual advisor (or ‘Qazi’) as to what was the Islamic law prescribed for the Hindus. The Qazi replied:

    “Hindus are like the mud; if silver is demanded from them, they must with the greatest humility offer gold. If a Mohammadan desires to spit into a Hindu’s mouth, the Hindu should open it wide for the purpose. God created the Hindus to be slaves of the Mohammadans. The Prophet hath ordained that, if the Hindus do not accept Islam, they should be imprisoned, tortured, finally put to death, and their property confiscated.”

    Timur was a Turkic conqueror and founder of the Timurid Dynasty. Timur’s Indian campaign (1398 – 1399 AD) was recorded in his memoirs, collectively known as ‘Tuzk-i-Timuri.’ In them, he vividly described probably the greatest gruesome act in the entire history of the world – where 100,000 Hindu prisoners of war in his camp were executed in a very short space of time. Timur after taking advice from his entourage says in his memoirs :

    “they said that on the great day of battle these 100,000 prisoners could not be left with the baggage, and that it would be entirely opposed to the rules of war to set these idolaters and foes of Islam at liberty.

    “In fact, no other course remained but that of making them all food for the sword’

    Timur thereupon resolved to put them to death. He proclaimed :

    “throughout the camp that every man who has infidel prisoners was to put them to death, and whoever neglected to do so should himself be executed and his property given to the informer. When this order became known to the ghazis of Islam, they drew their swords and put their prisoners to death. 100,000 infidels, impious idolaters, were on that day slain. Maulana Nasir-ud-din Umar, a counselor and a man of learning, who, in all his life had never killed a sparrow, now, in execution of my order, slew with his sword fifteen idolatrous Hindus, who were his captives“.

    During his campaign in India – Timur describes the scene when his army conquered the Indian city of Delhi :

    “In a short space of time all the people in the [Delhi] fort were put to the sword, and in the course of one hour the heads of 10,000 infidels were cut off. The sword of Islam was washed in the blood of the infidels, and all the goods and effects, the treasure and the grain which for many a long year had been stored in the fort became the spoil of my soldiers.

    “They set fire to the houses and reduced them to ashes, and they razed the buildings and the fort to the ground….All these infidel Hindus were slain, their women and children, and their property and goods became the spoil of the victors. I proclaimed throughout the camp that every man who had infidel prisoners should put them to death, and whoever neglected to do so should himself be executed and his property given to the informer. When this order became known to the ghazis of Islam, they drew their swords and put their prisoners to death.”

    The Mughal emperor Babur (who ruled India from 1526 -1530 AD) writing in his memoirs called the ‘Baburnama’ – wrote : ” In AH 934 (2538 C.E.) I attacked Chanderi and by the grace of Allah captured it in a few hours. We got the infidels slaughtered and the place which had been Daru’l-Harb (nation of non-muslims) for years was made into a Daru’l-Islam (a muslim nation).”

    In Babur’s own words in a poem about killing Hindus (From the ‘Baburnama’ ) he wrote :

    “For the sake of Islam I became a
    I battled infidels and Hindus,
    I determined to become a martyr
    Thank God I became a Killer of

    The atrocities of the Mughal ruler Shah Jahan (who ruled India between 1628 – 1658 AD) are mentioned in the contemporary record called : ‘Badshah Nama, Qazinivi & Badshah Nama , Lahori’ and goes on to state : “When Shuja was appointed as governor of Kabul he carried on a ruthless war in the Hindu territory beyond Indus…The sword of Islam yielded a rich crop of converts….Most of the women (to save their honour) burnt themselves to death. Those captured were distributed among Muslim Mansabdars (Noblemen)”

    The Afghan ruler Ahmad Shah Abdali attacked India in 1757 AD and made his way to the holy Hindu city of Mathura, the Bethlehem of the Hindus and birthplace of Krishna.

    The atrocities that followed are recorded in the contemporary chronicle called : ‘Tarikh-I-Alamgiri’ :

    “Abdali’s soldiers would be paid 5 Rupees (a sizeable amount at the time) for every enemy head brought in. Every horseman had loaded up all his horses with the plundered property, and atop of it rode the girl-captives and the slaves. The severed heads were tied up in rugs like bundles of grain and placed on the heads of the captives…Then the heads were stuck upon lances and taken to the gate of the chief minister for payment.

    “It was an extraordinary display! Daily did this manner of slaughter and plundering proceed. And at night the shrieks of the women captives who were being raped, deafened the ears of the people…All those heads that had been cut off were built into pillars, and the captive men upon whose heads those bloody bundles had been brought in, were made to grind corn, and then their heads too were cut off. These things went on all the way to the city of Agra, nor was any part of the country spared.”


    Banda Singh Bahadur was tortured to death after being imprisoned for 3 months. The heart of Banda Singh’s son was put in his mouth in an attempt to humiliate him

    Why we should remember

    The biggest holocaust in World History has been whitewashed from history.

    When we hear the word HOLOCAUST most of us think immediately of the Jewish holocaust. Today, with increased awareness and countless cinema films and television documentaries – many of us are also aware of the Holocaust of the Native American peoples, the genocide of the Armenian peoples in the Ottoman Empire, and the millions of African lives lost during the Atlantic slave trade.

    Europe and America produced at least a few thousand films highlighting the human misery caused by Hitler and his army. The films expose the horrors of Nazi regime and reinforce the beliefs and attitude of the present day generation towards the evils of the Nazi dictatorship.

    In contrast look at India. There is hardly any awareness among the Indians of today of what happened to their ancestors in the past, because a great majority of historians are reluctant to touch this sensitive subject.

    The World seems to either ignore or just does not seem to care about the many millions of lives lost during the 800 – year long holocaust of Hindus, Sikhs and Buddhist in India.

    The Indian historian Professor K.S. Lal estimates that the Hindu population in India decreased by 80 million between 1000 AD and 1525 AD, an extermination unparalleled in World history. This slaughter of millions of people occurred over regular periods during many centuries of Arab, Afghan, Turkish and Mughal rule in India.

    Many Indian heroes emerged during these dark times – including the 10th Sikh Guru – Guru Gobind Singh and also the Hindu Maratha king – Shivaji Maratha – who led the resistance against this tyranny and eventually led to its defeat by the late 1700s – after centuries of death and destruction.

    The modern World today is facing a global threat from organizations and groups of terrorists such as the ISIS, Taliban and Al-Qaeeda – whose ideology is chillingly similar to that of the perpetrators of the World’s biggest holocaust in India.

    Let us hope that the bloody lessons of the past are learnt so that history does not even have the remotest chance of repeating itself.

    The old ways of empire and their consequences are similar across the world, not unique to India. Look at what happened to the natives in both North and South America as another example. Claiming some form of a connection to present day ISIS as an indictment of only one religion is dishonest in the extreme.

    Most countries in Europe have a law prescribing imprisonment for Holocaust Denial.

    What do you think the chances are of getting a law on similar lines for arguing that no temples were demolished , no forcible conversions took place, no massacres of people professing allegiance to Sanatan Dharma happened , women & children weren't enslaved ?

    Yes India was invaded by Mongols,Afghans, Turks and their ilk...mostly muslims. They looted and plundered, violated our women, killed the children mercilessly, carnage and conversions went hand in hand.
    But is not true that inter-rivalry between the kingdoms in India paved the way for their entry in to India? Or that hindus never united for a common cause?
    If you look around,to this day we have been facing terrorism from neighboring Islamic countries. India might have soldiered on, but it has never been tough on them. This has costed us dearly in the past.


    For obvious reasons ppl are kept in dark. Fear of an uprising is the reason they say that such incidents are brushed under the carpet.
    Fear is the catch word.

    Btw i skipped reading the different ways in which our people were tortured.

    Brutality is not limited to one religion or one race or kind of people, it is rather universal. Human race is equal opportunity brutes, violators, murderers and bandits. Remember Japan's excesses in China? German on Jews? European on Africans, Indians, Native Americans and Australian Aborigins? Chinese on Tibetians? Radical Islam in Syria? They say if you sit besides the river you see the bodies of both your friends and foes flowing by.

    Sina’s Challenge

    by Ali Sina · August 4, 2007

    I receive many emails from angry Muslims, who sometimes beg and sometimes order me to remove this site. I consider both, pleading and bullying signs of psychopathology. Argumentum ad baculum and argumentum ad misericordiam are logical fallacies.

    If you do not like this site and want me to remove it disprove my charges against Muhammad logically. Not only will I remove the site, I will publicly announce that Islam is a true religion. I will also pay $50,000 U.S. dollars to anyone who can disprove any of the dozen of the accusations that I have made against Muhammad. I accuse Muhammad of being:

    a narcissist a misogynist a rapist
    a pedophile a lecher a torturer
    a mass murderer a cult leader an assassin
    a terrorist a mad man a looter

    It is not easy for a Muslim (i.e. a Muhammadan) to bear much criticism of Muhammad (let alone see Muhammad for who he was). It is like telling a child that his father is a rapist, murderer and a thief. A child who adulates his father will not be able to accept it even if all the proofs in the world are shown to him. He will instead call you a liar, hate you for hurting him, curse you and may explode in anger and hit you physically. A Muslim will genuinely believe that Muhammad was the MOST PERFECT person, kind and compassionate, merciful. A Muslim would generally admire and respect Muhammad more than his own parents. To understand this matter, a Christian reader should imagine being told that Jesus was a rapist, murderer and a thief, or a Buddhist being told the same about Buddha, or a Hindu being told the same about Krishna, Rama etc. But a child’s father can also be a rapist, murderer and a thief, and so it is in case of Islam that the man regarded as the best human ever was actually not so.

    The evidences of the above charges are exhaustively presented in my book Understanding Muhammad, now available for free download.

    I have debated with many Muslims. Their defense of Islam can be summarized in two categories:

    a- Denial of the authenticity of Islamic sources that report the stories of crimes of Muhammad (example: debate with Edip Yukssel, a leader of the Submitters)

    b- Moral relativism and situational ethics, e.g., “In those days, pedophilia, assassination, rape, raid, pillage, massacre and lying were common practices, therefore, Muhammad is innocent because he did what everyone else was doing.” Muslims go as far as to question the legitimacy of the Golden Rule and argue that no one other than a messenger of God can decide what is right and wrong. Hence, if he murders, plunders, tortures and rapes these practices must be good. (Example: debate with Yamin Zakaria)

    These are the main two arguments that Muslims present in defense of their prophet. Any rational person can see they are logical fallacies.

    The charges I have laid against Muhammad are irrefutable because they are reported in Islamic sources and as such are as good as confessions. You can’t acquit a criminal after he has confessed, unless you plead insanity, which is my point.

    Muslims often ask, “Who will judge whether or not an attempt to disprove your accusations against Muhammad and Islam has been successful?” Let us leave that to the readers. Once both sides present their arguments without fear of reprisal it won’t be hard to distinguish truth from falsehood. First read my book and then publish your rebuttal here.

    Edit 2007/07/29

    The above challenge was issued in 2001 and it hasn’t been met yet. See the debates I had with Muslims. Also, see Muslims rebuttals here , here, here and here. Is that all the Muslim world can offer? Where are the scholars of Islam? Why an important task such as defending Islam is left to amateurs who do more damage to Islam? Why the real scholars of Islam have remained silent?

    The truth is that several of the people that debated me were real scholars, such as the eminent Pakistani scholar Mr. Javed Ahmed Ghamidi and his disciple Dr. Khalid Zaheer. This debate is a must read and is available for download.

    As of this date (2007), I will no longer debate with people who want to debate anonymously. I only debate with reputable scholars. I made this decision because often, Muslims moved by their faith and zealotry, but with little knowledge of Islam, challenge me to debate. They rehash the same tried and refuted arguments that bore everyone and disappear. Then, other Muslims either accuse me of fabricating those debates or pooh-pooh my opponents for not being real scholars.

    As of this day, I am also doubling the reward. If you are not a reputable scholar, you can still win the prize. All you have to do is persuade a scholar to refute my charges. If he (she) wins or can prove that Muhammad was a prophet of God, both you and he (she) will be rewarded $50,000 dollars each. This is to encourage you to write to your admired scholars and convince them that Islam is in danger and that it is their duty to defend it.

    Yes, Islam is in grave danger. Never since its inception Islam has faced a threat as serious as this. The critics of Islam were simply killed. But today, millions of ex-Muslims are questioning the claimed truth of Islam and can make their criticisms heard worldwide without fearing for their lives. As long as these questions are not answered more Muslims will leave Islam. The trickle will become a torrent and the fall of Islam becomes inevitable. The biggest enemy of Islam is truth and with Internet it is impossible to extinguish the truth. Muslims stick to Islam mainly with the hope of Paradise and for fear of Hell. But if God sends people to Hell for disbelief, then Muslims will be first to go to Hell for believing in a charlatan and attributing insanity to God.

    In the past, critics of Islam briefly shined in the darkness of this faith, only to be put out by winds of persecution. What is happening today can be likened to the break of the dawn. Darkness has no chance when the sun is on the rise. Muslims are waking up and leaving Islam like never before. A spiritual and an intellectual revolution is underway. This is the century of enlightenment for Muslims. The days of Islam are numbered. This demon of hate and ignorance will be slain by the hands of its own primary victims. What will replace Islam will be peace, prosperity and unity of mankind. We are all children of one God who loves us equally. If God loves us all how could we hate each other? Would a loving God send a religion to make us hate and kill one another? Islam is blasphemy. It is the biggest trick of the Devil.

    Please advertise this challenge. This is like throwing water on Muslim’s fire. Nothing will dampen their zeal more than the realization that among a billion Muslims there is not a single scholar who can prove the wild claims of Muhammad or acquit him of these criminal charges. This challenge has a sobering effect on Muslims. They can make excuses, such as I am not worth their response, there have been greater men than me who opposed Islam, or that I have been refuted already, but they will not be able to fool themselves. The more this challenge is circulated, the more Muslims will doubt Islam. Do not undermine the psychological effect of this impossible challenge.


    Ali Sina

    Update: 2010/08/17

    Although the number of Muslims accepting this challenge has dropped substantially, I still receive long emails from Muslims who do their best to meet this challenge. The problem is that these Muslims are not familiar with the charges. What you see in this site is only an introduction to the charges. To see the evidence you have to read my book, Understanding Muhammad. Now from 15 July 2016, the latest edition of the book is also available for free download. It is available in English, Arabic, Urdu and Tamil.

    If you decide to answer this challenge, please don’t put pen to paper before you read the book. I know your excessive faith makes you believe you know everything, but really you don’t. So only after you read it write your rebuttal. I can assure you once you read the book there will remain nothing for you to say.
