CONVERTED KASHMIR: Memorial of Mistakes
resulted in the massacre of people, destruction of temples and shrines, in burning of libraries,rape of women and sale of enslaved men belonging to the conquered society, in looting of property of non-Muslims and in encasing children in walls. These were done in the name of Islam to "please" God.
Wherever Islam spread in the world these acts of destruction took place. After all what is there inIslam ?
Islam Divides the World
Islamic social science divides the world in two parts.
The nation of infidals (kafirs), area of war, is that place where people have notyet accepted Islam.
Meaning that nation where people have adopted Islam. To convert the entireworld into Darul Islam (area of peace) is the declared aim of Islam. Instructions have been issuedfor carrying out relentless struggle for achieving the establishment of the Islamic rule wherever ithas not been set up yet. It means that Muslims living in non-Muslim countries will not settle inpeace by cooperating with the local basic society, its culture and traditions. They will remainactive in their search for establishing Darul Islam. The basic tenets of Islam do not accept anyother religion. Therefore, it is considered religious to annex non-Muslim countries and then jointhem in the "Milat" (Muslim world).
Islam, either Death or Tax
Islam has created yet another religious division in the world - faithful (those who have faith in theBook) and faithless (those who have no faith in the Book). Christians and the Jews have beenplaced in the first group. Those who belonged to this group were given the right to live afterpaying the tax. But those who belonged to the other group (faithless) were given only two options- adoption of Islam or death.
It was necessary for non-Muslims in Egypt to wear a glass insignia round their neck after payingthe tax so that it could be known that they had not accepted Islam yet. For the first time in IndiaFeroz Shah Tuglak imposed tax on Brahmins. Thus there were two laws in the same country andat the same time, Islamic and non-Islamic. An example of this ignoble and shameless affair waswitnessed during the time of Sikander, an iconoclast, when he prohibited Hindus to ride horses,wear clothes and possess arms like the Muslims.
Jehad (Religious War)
The concept of Jehad (armed struggle) is an essential part of Islam. Encouragement for struggle
