How Hindus Survived 1000 Years of Islamic Rule in India
I found Muslims on Internet boasting that if Islam was so cruel to Hindus than how did Hindus survived despite of 1000 years of Islamic rule in India? If Islam would have spread by sword than all Hindus would have been forcibly converted and there would have been no more Hindus in this country today. This proves that Islam is Religion of mercy.
I am replying my Muslims friends in brief the causes of Survival of Hindus. It was not due to attitude and behavior of Islam but due to opposition by Hindus. Barbaric Muslim invaders tried their best but it was resistance by Hindus who saved them.
Following are the reasons for savior of Hindu race.
Such moral of Islamic conduct failed to impress the minds of common Hindus. Contrary to this Hindus considered twice bathing and worship of deity as regular religious duty and considered adultery, animal killing for meat and drinking alcohol as grave sins. The immoral life style of Muslims was unable to impress religious minds of Hindus. Opposite to that Hindus developed hatred feeling for such Muslim practices. Such high level of thinking, intellectual progress, Vedic wisdom saved Hindus from mass conversion of Hindus.
Thus its a myth that Muslims invaders tried their best Hindus survived due to their resistance and attempt to survive.
