The Biggest Holocaust in World History

The genocide suffered by the People of India at the hands of Arab, Turkish, Mughal and Afghan occupying forces for a period of 800 years is as yet formally unrecognized by the world. The invasion of India by Mohamud Ghazni in about 1000 AD began the Muslim invasion into the Indian subcontinent and it lasted for several centuries.

  1. Nadir Shah made a mountain of skulls of the Indians he killed in Delhi alone.

  2. Babur raised towers of Indian skulls at Khanua when he defeated Raina Sangha in 1527 and later he expected the same horrors after capturing the Fort Chanderi.

  3. Akbar ordered a general massacre of 30,000 Rajputs after he captured Chithorgarh in 1658.

  4. The Bahamani Sultan 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 Indians in India continued for 800 years, till the brutal regimes were effectively overpowered in a life and death struggle by the Sikhs in the Punjab and the Maratha armies in other parts of India in the late 1700s.

The records glorified the crimes that were committed, and the genocide of tens of millions of Hindus, Buddhists, Jainists, mass rapes of women and the destruction of thousands of ancient Hindu, Buddhist, and Sikh temples and libraries have been well documented and provide solid proof of the world’s biggest holocaust.

The biggest slaughter took place during the raids of Mahmoud Ghaznavi in 1000 AD and during the actual conquest of North India by the Mohammed Ghori and his lieutenants in 1192 and under the Delhi Sultan in 1206-1526.

The Mohammedan conquest of India is probably the bloodiest story in history. Many Islamic historians and scholars have recorded the slaughter of Indians, forced conversions, abduction of women to slave markets and the destruction of temples carried out by the warriors of Islam during 800 to 1700 AD. Millions of Hindus were converted to Islam by sword during this period.
