What comes in your mind when your hear the word ‘Holocaust’?
Most of us will think immediately of the Jewish holocaust committed by Nazi Germany under the leadership of Adolf Hitler. Many of us are aware of such holocaust of the Native American peoples, millions of African lives lost during Slave trading, the genocide of the Armenian peoples in the Ottoman Empire.
However, we are sure that very few knows that World’s biggest holocaust did happen in India. You must be shocked or surprised, but this is indeed true.
Our Liberal and Secular cabal go gaga over Mughal rule and project it as a golden age of medieval India, however, the truth is that almost 800 years of Islamic rule has witnessed World’s biggest holocaust, where more than 80 Million Hindus were mercilessly massacred by various Islamic Rulers and Sultans. Hundreds of Millions were converted to Islam and several hundreds of millions of Hindu women were raped and turned into sex-slaves for life.
These atrocities were committed by Islamic invaders like Arab, Mughals, Turkish, and Afghan who came from Central Asia, Arab and plundered the ancient India, killed millions of people, destroyed the economy and then they became the darling of our biased historians, who never leave any opportunity to suppress their heinous acts and make them heroes of of society.
It all started with invasion of India by Mahmud Ghazni around 1000 A.D., that was an event which opened the flood gates of Islamic invaders into the Indian subcontinent and they lasted for more than 8 centuries. Ghazni was followed by Nadir Shah, who made a mountain of the skulls of the Delhi’s Hindus.
Babur raised towers of Hindu skulls at Khanua, where he defeated Rana Sanga in 1527, he replicated the same ‘Jihad’ practice when he captured the fort of Chanderi. His son and allegedly the ‘Greatest Mughal King’ Akbar did order a brutal massacre of more than 30,000 Rajput warriors when he captured Chittorgarh fort in 1568. Even the Bahamani Sultans had an annual ritual of killing a minimum of 100,000 Hindus, which was considered as Jihad.
The holocaust of the Hindus continued for 800 years. We will share some literary evidence by eminent writers and historians, which proves that World’s biggest holocaust did happen in India. Several historians and biographers have documented all these evil incidents and left quite detailed records of the atrocities these Islamic invaders committed.
Dr. Koenraad Elst wrote 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.”
Dr. Koenraad Elst in his article “Was There an Islamic Genocide of Hindus?” which 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.
He further added that “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).“
Indian Historian K.S. Lal gave detailed information in his book ‘Growth of Muslim Population in Medieval India (1000-1800)’
This book gives a detailed assessment of change in Indian demography between 1000 CE and 1500 CE. Lal concluded that the population of the Indian subcontinent in 1000 CE was around 200 million and in 1500 was about 170 million. Lal estimates that about 60 to 80 million people died in India between 1000 and 1525 as a result of the Islamic invasion of the Indian subcontinent. He also observed that more than 2 million Hindus died during Mahmud of Ghazni’s invasions of India alone.
American historian and writer Will Durant wrote 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.”
French historian Alain Danielou in his book, Histoire de l’ Inde wrote
“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.”
Persian historian Wassaf writes in his book ‘Tazjiyat-ul-Amsar wa Tajriyat ul Asar’
When Alaul-Din Khilji 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 twenty 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.”
The Mughal emperor Babur wrote in his memoirs called the ‘Baburnama’
” 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
Contemporary record ‘Badshah Nama, Qazinivi & Badshah Nama , Lahori’
This explains the atrocities committed by Mughal ruler Shah Jahan, who is known as a ‘Romantic Person’ by Leftist historians. It states “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 burnt themselves to death. Those captured were distributed among Muslim Mansabdars”.
‘Tarikh-I-Alamgiri’ describes atrocities of Afghani Invader Ahmad Shah Abdali
“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.”
The biggest irony is, that this biggest holocaust in World History has been completely whitewashed from history and not many people are aware of these atrocities. If we talk about the Western world, they produce movies and documentaries, which highlights the human misery caused by evil rulers. They ensure that their current generations are aware of the atrocities imposed on their forefathers, and they don’t shy away from attacking those regimes and their belief system, which caused such a trauma for their earlier generation.
However, a similar approach is missing in Indians, the root cause for the same is lack of any awareness among the youngsters about what happened to their ancestors in the past. We can’t put the entire blame on them as most of our historians have twisted the facts and fabricated the history to please their Secular Masters. We should ask our generation to study more, research more on these subjects, to explore the truth. We must remember it always, that a future is constructed on the foundation of our past, any issue, any problem which we are facing today, it has their references somewhere in the past, until and unless we understand our past, we wont be able to solve the problems of our future.
A comprehensive article Manish ji, felt blood boiling experience while reading your words.
Please keep writing on these.
Must needed, much needed revelation of History.
Thank you so much for your kind words. Please share this with your friends.
Excellent story.I have a pss it to so many of my close friends.
Most comprehensive article with references. Truly the biggest genocide in history. Colonial stooges like Gandhi and Nehru hid these truths.
Sanatan Dharma must come to the fore of global consciousness as Kaliyug and Pralaya are intensifying in the world.
A truly eye opening article which very clearly states the truth with facts. What were were taught all the time in history book is for sure a cover-up and an attempt to honor those barbarian mughal looters and attackers.
People like you are bringing the truth to the public. Hats Off and keep it up!!
The real and bloody holocaust started in India and the bloody government still teaches the glory of mighal empire rather than stating the immense sacrifice of the great warriors ( men and women) who strived to protect this divine land and lost very valuable knowledge which gives the glory of India to the world…. Jai Hind!!!!
The sacrifices will not go in vain …..
Thanks for sharing

A well-documented survey of the bloody reign of Islam in the Indian subcontinent. A story which has become lost to history outside of India, but a story which must be told. The long 1,400-year war between Islam and the Christian West is now well-known to historians, but the equally-important and arguably even more-savage story of the Hindus, Buddhists, and other peoples under the scimitar has somehow been lost or discounted.
This is a wrong which all good people ought to strive to correct. The late Iris Chang, the award-winning author of the 1937-1938 “Rape of Nanking,” and the grandchild of survivors of that horrific event, once wrote that atrocities tend to occur “in pairs,” namely the act of violence itself, and then the disappearance or cover-up of the event itself.
No man may tell another man how to worship his creator, or even whether to worship at all. That choice is between the individual and his conscience. The soldiers of Allah, however, have been waging eternal holy war (jihad) against all non-Muslims – Christian, Hindu, Buddhist, Jew, and atheist alike – for 1,400 years, as their prophet mandates ceaseless conflict until Islam rules the whole earth and all lie within its house, Dar al-Islam. Islamic (sharia) law commands not only Muslims, but non-Muslims as well, to abide by its dictates, or face death, subjugation, or conversion.
Apologists for Islam claim that its violence lies in the past, that no modern Muslim would do as his forbearers did centuries ago. But the history of our times puts the lie to that claim: the first modern holocaust – the Armenian genocide of 1915-1921 – took place at the hands of the Sunni Muslim Ottoman Turks, who slew an estimated 1.5 million Armenian Christians, Greeks, and other infidels over a five-six year span.
Historians term this event the first “modern” genocide, as it was the first such event documented extensively on film and in the age of modern electronic media such as radio and film. Photo-documentary evidence exists of young Armenian women crucified upon large wooden crosses in the heat of the desert sun, to die a horrible and cruel death. Their “crime”? Not being Muslim. The sacking of the Greek city of Smyrna in Asia Minor by the Turks was recorded on film, from vessels lying offshore.
As recently as the carnage in the Darfur region of the Sudan in the 1990s and 2000s, we have seen similar bloodletting. The Sudanese dictator and Islamic supremacist Omar al-Bashir, used helicopter gunships to strafe, bomb and rocket Christian villages and churches. The violence was so bad that the non-Muslims split off into their own nation, the South Sudan – but today, fierce Janjaweed Islamic tribesman, continue to raid into that nation as well. It seems that the only language the jihadists understand is violence and terror.
The civilized world should aid India in any way possible in its fight against the encroachment of Islam and its depredations. It is not just their fight, but ours as well.
Very cruel. Demon religion
The Muslim Islamist fanatics who committed the biggest genocide as shown above since 1000AD raped & enslaved & converted 100’s of millions of Hindus went undocumented. They are still considered the most ruthless & feared religious zealots
