Thomas Sowell in his book Race and Culture , he claimed that over 11 million Africans were shipped as slaves to the Islamic nations of North Africa and Middle East countries. Many died in the this process of shipping. The renowned missionary David Livingstone estimated that for every slave who reached a plantation, five others were killed in the initial raid or died of illness and privation on the forced march. Many Chinese people were also butchered during the Mongul Invasion.
David B. Barrett and Todd M Johnson in his ” World Christian Trend Buddhists too had to suffer the barbaric mindset of Muslims.The muslims conquered Balkh which was a centre of Buddhism. Many people in Balkh were sympathetic to Buddhism after the conquest and they were harshly denounced by adherents of Islamic orthodoxy. The Buddhist monastery of Nava Vihara which had become a symbol of national resistance was damaged under Muawiyah I. The Arabs allowed the non-Muslims to practice their religion as long as they paid the poll-tax called jizya. Buddhists had to undergo persecution and killings in Turkey, in Bharat under the barbaric Islamic rule, along the silk route and also in Afganistan. After the recent takeover of Afghanistan by Taliban, Taliban ordered the annihilation of Buddha statue. The world’s largest standing Buddha statues had survived for a millennium and a half—until the Islamists of Taliban ordered the destruction.
Islam is also responsible for the destruction of a civilization named Persian civilization. Parsis who are the followers of Zoroaster had to face barbaric activities of of the followers of Islam. They they were persecuted butchered ,raped, forcefully converted looted and made to leave their homes. Parsis left their home and fortunately got a helping hand from Bharat. Present day Persia is being recognised as Iran and Parsis continue to live Gujarat with a small population. The Muslim conquest of Persia also known as the Arab conquest of Iran was carried out by the Rashidun Caliphate from 633 to 654 AD which led to the decline of Zoroastrian religion.
Muslims always saw Jews as their greatest enemy. Historically we can find the mutual hatred between the followers of these two Abrahamic religion. In Saudi Arabia the community of Jews was totally cleaned up. Every Muslim dreams of the destruction of Israel and likewise everyone is aware of the the bitterness between Israel and its neighbouring Islamic countries. The hatred for Jews inside Muslims is in such a high amplitude that the muslims never shy away from praising Adolf Hitler for the genocide he perpetrated against Jews in which lakhs of Jews had to give up their life.
The other Abraham religion Christianity also had to suffer from its cousin religion Islam. David B. Barrett and Todd M Johnson in his ” World Christian Trends AD 30-AD 2200″ claimed that around 9 million Christians where butchered by Muslims. Christians where killed and regions of Balkan states, Hungary, Russia, Ukraine along with Christians in Asian miner and African Christians. Lot of Christians were also butchered and persecuted in the Middle East countries with a vast muslim population.
