Here we go again, India Vs Bharat. It will be probably the most volatile topic that I have written by far and wide. Today I’m going to rant about the “legacy” of Islamic rule in India and it’s stain on Bharat. Like always if you are the kind of person who is offended by lack of political correctness and blunt language; YOU MUST STOP NOW, YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED. Proceed at your own Peril.
The image search on Google about India gives us lush beautiful images of Himalaya, Bright colourful pictures of Rajasthan, wildlife and it’s architecture monuments build by Mughals etc, but not by any other Indian dynasty. I hope you now understand where this is going. For far too long we have admired the symbols of oppression, subjugation, massacre, murder and plunder as ‘pride of India’. The so called symbol of love, is nothing but a glorified tomb. We as a nation have failed to free ourselves in 1947, we just changed white masters for brown ones. Our brown masters ensured that the newly freed slave population is blind to their culture and adopts it’s oppressors as their forefathers. The new masters made sure that the local history is removed from history books, and it’s relics are left to rot and vanish in the wind of time.
Our books and education glorified the period of Mughal/Islamic rule to such an extent that now, after 185 years after McCauley and 73 years of independence, the stupid notion that Mughals made India rich has cropped up and idiot slave souls are gobbling this idea like pigs feasting on decaying flesh.
I don’t understand what has happened to the intelligence of this nation? The communication revolution was supposed to provide information BUT all I see is the spread of lies and made-up stories masquerading as facts. Islamic rulers centralised the wealth which was held by the common population, how they did it? by taxes, the centralisation of wealth marks the beginning of economic destruction of farmers, further down the line double taxation on manufacturing and sales started thinning of small scale merchants, these two were the base of village economy, after Mughal invasion the taxation became an art of exploitation and oppression, all the wealth that was in the hand of population went in the hands of Zamindars, Tax officers etc, all appointed by Mughal rulers and their inner council. The ultimate goal of Islamic invaders was to loot, Mughals looked at it from a different angle they went along the line of Imperialist ideology, the common non-islamic population had little to no rights or say in politics, military, or market, there are volumes upon volumes about the horrors of Islamic rule in India BUT all we are told that Tajmahal is symbol of love and Mughals bought biryani to India.
The names of Indian cities, which had deep rooted cultural significance, were changed for example, Prayagraj was named Allahabad, Lakhanpuri became Lucknow etc. There is a myth that the names of cities changed due to changing times,which is just bullshit. It is done systematically by erasing all the signs and structures that reminds one of their real heritage and essence. If you live in Delhi or Hyderabad or Lucknow, have you stopped for a second and thought about what is buried below the ground upon which these symbol of Islamic oppressors stand today, the Charminar, the Jama masjid, that Purana Quila?? I’m not saying that these are to be removed absolutely not However we as Indians, no matter what religion you follow, have to stop and think of the horrors that was thrust upon this land and stop taking pride in these symbols as they do not signify love or brotherhood or any positive quality but murder, plunder and blood.
