This only goes to show that you are entirely ignorant of the history of India wherein the Islamic invaders swept across the whole continent putting men, women and children to the sword.

In the case of one particular general, he made a practice of stopping and having a celebration "for the glory of Allah" every time yeah many tens of thousands of innocent victims had fallen to his armies. Islamic invaders didn't seem to have that much trouble progressing all the way across India, west-to-east, doing this all the way across to Bihar (in far eastern India), where Buddhist monasteries and libraries were burned to the ground and the "shavelings" (buddhist monks) where slaughtered on the spot.

Suggest you review the appropriate chapters of "The Oxford History of India."

Your ignorance on this matter is amazing. One suspects you're just making things up based on opinion rather than anything remotely resembling knowledge.
