“Max Mueller was a swindler; William Jones was a fraud!”

Haindava Keralam website interviews Dr. Prodosh Aich, the author of the book “Lies with Long Legs” which exposes the so-called ‘Indologists’ who came to India in the wake of the British invasion and whose garbage scholarship is still taken very seriously by clueless Indians.

Indian Professor Prodosh Aich,  calls Indologist  Max Mueller a “swindler”. He describes yet another Indologist William Jones a “fraud”. He  throws  a serious challenge to Europeans scholars who wrote tomes on ancient India. In his  book “Lies with long legs”,  Prof  Aich has unraveled and exposed  many such self claimed Indologists who claimed to know ancient Indian texts. 

Seventy-two year old Indian Professor, who studied in India and Germany Sociology, Ethnology and Philosophy, came to these startling revelations accidentally as his curiosity to know about “Aryans”, “Indo-Europeans and “Indo-Aryans” chanced him into new facts of the existing studies of ancient India and its people.  

Question: Your book ‘Lies with long legs’ has recently been published. What is this about?

Answer: Whatever, we know about discoveries, scholars,  scientists, are mostly not true. For example, when you get a book today there are references and these references go back 10, 20 or 30 years. They don’t go back beyond that. On every page, one finds quotations but you will never find that a quotation has been challenged. One never checks whether that quotation is correct or not. It is just accepted. What ever is printed is accepted.

Q: So every word is taken as a gospel?

A: No, not as a gospel. It has been accepted in the academic world. And if you have 20 books on one subject, you can be sure that there would be another 20 books on the same subject but with almost same references. They will never go back to roots. What, I have done.  I have tried to question. I  put , to start with, a simple question. “Well you are telling me this. How do you know that it is true”? Then I look into the bibliography of these books. I find lot of authors and then I make the same exercise to find out what their references have been. In that way, I find the first author who invented rather coined the words like Aryans, Indo-Germans and Indo-Europeans.

Q: So, you have done a research on India?

A: No,  that is not correct. As a matter of fact, I have not done any research. I wanted to know, who are these Aryans, Indo-Europeans and Indo-Germans and then tried to find out answers in the reference books and literature. I found out that none of the answers were satisfactory. I continued my search. It was not a research. Research is what you must publish. You have to publish every year, otherwise you will vanish. That is modern research. I did not do modern research, I wanted to know where they come from.  How did they recognise these Aryans? Who did this? Then I was very astonished to see that Indo-Aryans are very young. It came in vogue in the 19th century rather was invented in the second half of the19th century.

Q: What was the purpose of inventing this word?

A:  Now, you are taking things into realm of speculation. To my mind there are two reasons. One is that in 18th and 19th century. Christians were trying to find something else as heredity then Jewish religion. It was something like anti-Semitism And at that time, there was a fancy for the Orient without knowing what Orient meant. Whether Orient was Arabia, India, Persia or China, they had no idea about it in the 18th and 19th century. Through Persian translations, they knew that there was a vast amount of literature in India.  They wanted to understand that. Portuguese were the first there and then the British, French, Dutch etc. None of them came to the idea to identify themselves with the people. But the Britishers concocted the story that Europeans and Indians were related to each other because they had the common heredity of the nomadic people coming from the area of Turkmenistan on the Chinese border. They were settled  nomadic people.  They had migrated to the West and they had migrated to the South-West. They are of the same breed and stock.

Q: Same stock?

Q: Yes, same stock. While the Britishers were robbing India taking away whatever they could, they said we have come to our own home. We have the common heredity. So the name of this came much later. It was done by Max Mueller in 1859. Can you imagine that Max Mueller maintained in 1859 that he  read in Rigveda that Vedic people were singing about their land of origin and there they  mention themselves as Aryans. And these people also went to the West and we are also Aryans. These were Indo-Aryans and we are European-Aryans.

Q: Max Mueller is a very renowned name in India. We have a Max Mueller Institute here where German language is taught and various other activities are conducted. In my understanding, Max Mueller had a command on Sanskrit language and he translated Vedas and other works of Sanskrit. How did he come to acquire immense knowledge of the ancient language which incidentally was not a spoken language?

A: Max Mueller. It is not his name. His name was Friedrich Maximillan Mueller. He did not publish in German. He did not get a job in Germany. He got a job with the East India Company in England. Most of his writings are in English. He was neither a scholar nor he knew Sanskrit. He was a swindler.

Q: You call him a swindler?

A: I call him a swindler. I can provide  proofs in support of my assertion. I can reason it out  also. Max Mueller had assumed that he was a scholar. From his own autobiography, from biographies written by his son and wife, from other biographies, from his other writings, and from his letters, we can reconstruct his life from birth to his death. After passing the High School, he never appeared in any examination rather never cleared any examination. So obviously he can not possess any academic degrees. Yet he calls himself a Master of Arts (MA). His wife calls him a Doctor of Philosophy. His wife maintains that he was a Ph. D. from the Leipzig  University. There is no record at the Leipzig University or any proof that he appeared in any examination there. So how would you describe him:

Q: OK, but there are people who without going to school or university acquire knowledge of languages. So what about his knowledge of Sanskrit.

A: That is a different issue but one can’t describe oneself as a scholar or ascribe degrees to oneself without clearing  any examination. So far Sanskrit, Max Mueller never came to India. In his youth, he wanted to come to India but when he had  money as his books were flooding market with the help of East India Company. But when he had plenty of money, he did not feel any need of coming to India. So the question arises that if had not learnt Sanskrit in India then he must have learnt it in Europe. So this is another part of my book ‘Lies with long legs’ as we have tried to find out who was the first person, the pioneer, who taught Sanskrit in Europe.

Q: So who was this person?

A: He was a nobody, He was a simple boy of 18 when he came to India as an ordinary soldier. He completed is term and roamed around in India and then reached France. There he said that he knew Sanskrit. Quality of his knowledge of Sanskrit was that he knew the Devnagri alphabet well  but beyond that he could not make  a distinction between the language and script.

Q :What was his name?

A: Alexander Hamilton was his name.  There is a long story about him in the book because people said that he was a great Sanskrit scholar. So we traced his roots also. The most interesting thing while doing this book was that though all the material is available in the libraries,  no one else  worked on the available material. If some one claimed that a he was a scholar then nobody questioned that claim. Everyone started saying that the person was a scholar as it is written in printed words. It was presumed that if one taught Sanskrit to others then he knew Sanskrit.

Q: So it seems that follies went on multiplying?

A: No, Hamilton’s students did not teach Sanskrit. Later came some others who said that they knew Sanskrit. They  claimed that they have been auto-didactic and had learnt the language themselves. How can you learn Sanskrit without having a dictionary or without a proper grammar book?

Q: Sanskrit was never a spoken language so how can this be learnt without a teacher? The language had to be learnt systematically for 6 to 7 years so that one could translate works like the Vedas?

A: It is not your opinion alone  Even some European thought the same. Unfortunately those who learnt Sanskrit systematically did not teach the language in Europe. Heinrich Roth was one such person who came to India and landed in Goa and from there was transferred  to Agra. There he became the principal of a Jesuit college.  He belonged to Jesuit order. In Agra, he learnt Sanskrit for six years, mastered the language so well that he “discussed” with the Brahmins in Sanskrit. Having understood the importance of Sanskrit, he compiled  a grammar book with Latin explanatory notes added to it. As a matter of  fact, he produced a simplified version of Panini’s grammar, which was compiled at least 4000 years ago.         

The Sanskrit grammar vanished in the Vatican library. It was traced in 1988 and all Indologists agree that quality of this grammar book was far superior to the ones upon which Sanskrit was being taught in Europe. Others did not learn Sanskrit properly but they stoutly maintained that they knew Sanskrit.

You know how it happened? Someone talked to some Pundits and he came to know that there was something called Bhagvat Gita These Pundits were not professors or learned scholars of Sanskrit. Very near Calcutta, there was an university at Nadia. Varansi was nearby and one could have got in touch with professors there. They talked to Pundits in Calcutta, a small township built by the British, who claimed to know Sanskrit.

Q: But Brahmins or Pundits would not encourage any foreigner to learn Sanskrit and read religious book?

A: Who told you this?  It is wrong.  The story was told by William Jones. But is not based on facts. It was never sacred. Learning Sanskrit was a difficult task Brahmins had the privilege of servicing others by reciting Sanskrit texts to them. Whether they understood it or not was a different issue. This was  inherited from one generation to other. They knew Sanskrit but how did the British learnt it. Christian mind created stories around fragments of information. Their stories are reflection of their minds. It was not the translation of Bhagvat Gita but what they sold it as Bhagvat Gita.

Then Europeans who never came to India but learnt Sanskrit alphabets  and saw Bhagvat Gita and recognised its alphabets. They could possibly recognise words but they did not understand it. So they would collect more book and apply their Christian mind and say that this is not logical so it has to be this or that. In this process, they were also trying to compile a dictionary. There was never a Sanskrit dictionary as grammar is the key to Sanskrit language. But they were trying to compile a dictionary word by word. So in this way they have transported a type of Sanskrit to Europe where I  have doubts that it is Sanskrit at all. But the tragic part is that this Sanskrit has been imported  back to India. This is what we learn in India with the help of the Sanskrit dictionaries.

The standard dictionary of Sanskirt here is of Sir Monier Monier who also never came to India before compiling his dictionary in 1854. He collected all materials and prepared  a dictionary diligently. But this dictionary was not available to Max Mueller. Max Mueller had only one dictionary written by one Wilson. He also stayed in Calcutta. He was a medical doctor. He served as Director of a mint because he had some knowledge of chemicals. He interacted with Bengali Pundits and he prepared the dictionary with the help of the Pundits of Calcutta in as late as 1819 when the first Sanskrit dictionary came out.  At best, Max Mueller could have used this dictionary. Max Mueller was at a place where Wilson taught Sanskrit. Max Mueller observes in his biography that Wilson did not have enough knowledge of Sanskrit.
Q: So you make a dictionary without learning a language?
A: Possibly one could make a dictionary.  Definitely not a good  one.   If you went to China and you met some Chinese and understood what they said and you understood it then make a dictionary.
Q: But with this kind of dictionary, one can’t translate?

A:  Definitely not. But did he translate? In order to translate, one has to have a  command on both languages. I think he had command on German and English. But whatever you translate from Sanskrit and even if one has command on both languages, it would be reflection of one’s mind. Max Mueller  did not understand Sanskrit. He had never read a Sanskrit text.  He had read Sanskrit text with the help of translation made by others.

Q: Hinduism came  to created. Do you think Hindu way of life was a religion?

A: I don’t know Sanskrit. But what ever I know sanatan dharma or dharma  was not at all a religion, it was much more comprehensive.

Q: Do you think, there was a definite design behind it?

A: Absolutely Otherwise a company which had come to rob a country, to exploit a country, to create conditions for sustained exploitation, why should they spend money on Max Mueller to get market flooded with so called Indian literature?  It was for creating an atmosphere. There is a letter written by Max Mueller to his wife that he has performed this role so that the educated Indians would never get back to their 3000 years roots. They will find their roots through our books.

Q: It sounds like Macaulay?

A: No, it is Max Mueller. The books have to be written in such a way that they don’t get back to their roots.

Q: Were Max Mueller and Thomas Macaulay contemporaries?

A.  Macaulay was a politician of a ruthless sort. He had formulated the purpose of the introduction of educational system as early as 1835. Thereafter, Macaulay was looking for a person who would translate the Sanskrit literature in a way that no Indian would be able to find  way back to their roots. In 1854, he had identified Max Mueller to be that person when he was 31.  Our country is the only country where modern sector has no way to go back to its roots without going through these books. Most of the educated persons read the English literature including the first Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru; He was also a fan of this literature . Whatever he knew about India, he knew through this rubbish literature.

Q: So you want to say that they were able to capture the Indian mind?

A Absolutely It was their declared policy that we make the educational system in such a way as to be able  to create a class of Indians who are Indians by blood but in their minds, sentiments, thinking and values they are Christians. They are like us. We have to confess that we are all children of Macaulay  But now then, it did’nt function. And it was a mere accident that I wanted to know who were the Aryans. I had never thought to explore the literature of Indology. But once you put this question, you come to unexpected enlightenment.

Q: So your view would be that there were no Aryans and they never came from outside and they were all here?

A: It is not a mater of view. Findings are that mention of Aryan was first made by a person who was a swindler. He was neither a scholar nor he knew Sanskrit. But he claimed that in Rigveda there is a hymn. He did not mention which one In this mention, he claimed that people were singing and identifying themselves  as Aryans. They came from outside. So whatever culture has been created in this area of the world has been created by foreigners. And he also belonged to this class of foreigners.

Q: You devote considerable space in your book to William Jones. What about him?

A:  He had not written an auto- biography but lot of biographies have been written about him. He had left behind his letters. Two volumes of his letters have been published. If one goes through his biography from his childhood till he came to India, one finds out that William Jones was an opportunist. He did everything to make a career and ultimately he claimed that he knew 32 languages And it has come to be accepted by the educated community.

Q:  What about his knowledge of Sanskrit?

A: In 1885, he has confessed in a letter to Charles Wittkins in Calcutta that he is too old to learn Sanskrit. But,  it is absolutely certain that he did not have command over  Sansrkit. He had no time to pick up Sanskrit.

Q: But he has translated some Sanskrit works?

A: Only one work he has published. That is Manu’s laws but even this has been done by others, by hired Pundits. He has put his name on it. If one goes through his biographies and other material then one comes to a conclusion that he  too was a fraud. But he was a fraud of a greater caliber. He came to Calcutta to earn money. In five years, so much of money that he can go back to England and buy a seat in British Parliament. He had calculated that this much of money could be earned in London in 20 to 25 years. His sole objective was to earn  20 to 25,000 Pounds.

While he was coming to India, he had a  plan to write a  world history according to his own design . And he did not need any other material  but his own fantasy. So when he arrived in Calcutta, he started selling himself as a great oriental scholar. In the first year, he had invented one Indian God Kamdeva. And the way, he invented Kamdeva. I have documented in the book.

    Prof.Aich’s book “Lies with long legs” is truly exceptional. It should be made a compulsory reading for all students of Indian history.

  2. Sankaran

    That “Aryan” was a figment of imagination of the British to divide Indians is being established by a few scholors. Any Govt. which has a national interest would have widely publicised it to tell it’s citizens that they belong to one race. But it is foolish to expect that of the present Govt., hell bent on dividing every Indian.

    • Selvan

      British did not invent anything. They just used the division already present in India. It was brahmins who originally divided India. Even Swamy Vivekananda speaks about the cruel casteism that was found in Kerala, the highest in India. These Brahmins are very angry about British because after their arrival, their supremacy was lost. Indian slaves of brahmins were freed. This was the by product of Indian slavery to British. Aryan brahmins are very much afraid to accept that they came from outside of India. Because they think one day they will be kicked out as britishers were kicked out. But don’t worry. All of us came from outside. Slowly we all will learn to live together.

        However much you may parade your descent from Aryan ancestors and sing the glory of ancient day and night,and however much you may be strutting in the pride of your birth,you, the upper classes of India,do you think you are alive? You are but mummies of ten thousand years old!
        It is among those whom your ancestors despised as
        “walking carrion”, that the little of vitality there is
        still in India is to be found; and it is you who are real
        “walking corpses”. Your house your furniture look
        Like museum specimens, so lifeless and antiquated
        they are; and an eye witness of your manner and
        customs ,your movements and modes of life , is
        inclined to think that he is listening to a grandmother’s tale !
        When, even after making a personal acquaintance
        with you , one seems to think one had been to
        visit the painting of an art gallery !
        In the world of Maya, you are the real illusion,
        the mystery , the real mirage in the desert , you
        the upper class of India !
        You represent the past tense ,with all its verieties
        of form jumble into one . That one still seems to
        see you at the present time , is nothing but a
        nightmare brought on by indigestion . You are
        the void ,the unsubstantial nonentities of future.
        Denizens of the dreamland , why you are loitering
        any longer ? Fleshless and bloodless skeletons of
        the dead body of Past India that you are , why do
        you not quickly reduce yourselves into dust and
        disappear in the air ?
        Ay, in your bony fingers are some rings of jewels
        treasured up by your ancestors ,and within the
        embrace of your sinking corpse are preserved
        a good many treasure chests .Up and now you
        have not the opportunity to hand them over.
        Now under the British rule, pass them on your
        Heirs, ay, do it as quickly as you can .You merge
        yourself in the void and disappear, and let new
        India arise in your place.
        Let her arise – out of the peasants’ cottage, grasping
        the plough ; out of the huts of fisherman , the cobblers, and the sweepers . Let her spring from the
        grocer’s shop , from beside the oven of fritter –seller.
        Let her emanate from the factory , from marts and
        from markets . Let her emarge from groves and forests from hills and mountains .Those common
        people have suffered oppression for thousand of
        years –suffered it without murmur , and as a result
        have got wonderful fortitude .They have suffered
        eternal misery , which has given them unflinching
        vitality .
        Living on handful of gram ,they can convulse the
        world : give them only half a piece of bread ,and
        the whole world will be not big enough to contain
        there energy ; they are endowed with the inexhaustible vitality of Raktabija ( a powerful
        demon mentioned in Durga –saptashati,every
        drop of blood falling on the ground produce another
        demon like him ).
        And besides, they have got the wonderful strength
        that comes of a pure and moral life , which is not to
        be found anywhere in the world.
        Such peacefulness, such contentment, such love , such
        Power of silent such incessant work ,and such manifestation of lion strength in the time of action –
        where else you find these !
        Skeletons of the past ,there ,before you,are the successors, the India that is to be.
        Throw those treasure chest of yours and those jewelled rings among them ,as soon as you can:
        and you vanish into the air ,and be seen no more
        – only keep your ears open.
        No sooner will you disappear then you will hear
        the inaugural shout of renascent India ,ringing
        the voice of million thunders and reverberating
        throughout the universe, Wah Guru di Fatah”-

        • Goutham

          Assuming that the Brahmins are evil and divided the society. Do they still do that. No naa then why to hate them. learn to love everyone.

          If Brahmins are evil and divided society these britishers are even evil. they colonized and killed millions of people accross the world. These christian missionaries who created the concept of Dravidian and Lemuria planet also killed millions of native americans and pagans of Europe. Even Islamic invasions of India killed millions of people. If you feel that Hinduism is evil then abrahmic religions are even evil. With the concept of one God and obsession towards sin these people killed many others.

          Please dont fall for this western propaganda and also if Brahmins created caste to divide us lets come out of it and let us not practice it. I see many non brahmins who take pride in their caste.

          • Indian Realist

            This kind of anti-Brahmin garbage is being written by missionaries and Christians — they have identified Brahmins as the custodians of Hindu spiritual literature. Their strategy is to create hate about Brahmins in the minds of the Hindus so that Hinduism dies.

      • Goutham

        Hi Selvan
        This Aryan race is an invention of British and germans. They Germans/europeans some how wanted to come out of the semitic roots and detach from judaism for their spiritual belief and hence created indo european race, indo german race or aryan race. In their madness to prove they are superior they fought ww2 and because of the lie they created they also suffered.

        The puropse of British to invent aryan race is to divide india in the form of aryans and dravidians . They acted as if they love Sanskrit and Indian literature but the whole purpose is to divide India. They created some myths like ST Thomas visited India in 57 A.D and inspired Thiruvalvar and claimed that Thiruvalvar is christian blah blah. They also blabbered some crap like Lemuria continent or kumari kandam and associated Dravidians with africans which is all fake.

        All this is handiwork of fake missionaries and britishers. Please come out of that myth. The whole purpose of Christian missionaries is to divide India and then convert the chunk to christianity and also the west want this so that they can divide India. Selva I am not a North Indian. I am from Andhra and I am not a brahmin. Please dont fall for this fake propaganda of fake people

  3. N.S. Rajaram

    Much of what Professor Aich has say has been covered by others as in my book THE POLITICS OF HISTORY. Germans created the Aryan myth, only the British used it.
    European scholars like Stefan Arvidsson, Leon Poliakov have throughly examined it and denounced it. The only people still holding on to it are Indian historians like Romila Thapar, R.S. Sharma and politicians like Karunanidhi. This is what needs to be analyzed, going beyond beating a dead horse.

  4. gajanan

    Yes , in the 1880’s the Germans and Brits were on friendly terms, so it was east for the British to apply. In 1841 , Caldwell proposed the word Dravidian. Then came 1857, which shook the Empire. It was after 1857 , Max Mueller came up with this Aryan theory . This theory came in handy for the Brits to divide India in 1947 on the basis of religion. When will Indians understand this.

  5. Sandeep

    “Much of what Professor Aich has say has been covered by others as in my book THE POLITICS OF HISTORY.”
    Can you elaborate on this?
    Have you covered ‘educational credentials’ of Indologists in your book?

    • sanjay

      Dr Aich’s entire book “Lies with Long Legs” is going to be soon available in an ebook format on this blog, free for everyone to download.

  6. JGN

    Why the onus of proving or disproving the AIT rests with the Hindus in present day India? Even if there was some Aryan Invasion, the ancestors of all North Indians, irrespective of Religion, were responsible for the same.

    The other indigenous Religions developed over a period ranging from 2600 years, (Buddhism) to 500 years (Sikhism) back, not to speak of the West Asian Religions that originated about 2000 years and 1400 years back and reached India much later.

    To my knowledge the Tamil Nadu CM, Mr. Muthuvel Karunanidhi does not think the UP CM Ms.Mayawati is an Aryan nor does he think that the nasty dynasty of a Kashmiri Brahmin are Aryans. They are playing dirty politics in the name of Dravidians.

  7. A Krishna

    What do you mean “Kamdeva” was invented? Isn’t kamadeva a real deva who was burned by Shiva’s third eye? I’m confused.

  8. A Krishna

    As of 1996 there was still a village in Karnataka whose residents spoke in sanskrit. The name of that village is Mattur and I remember this because there was a documentary about this on the local television channel.

    I studied Sanskrit as first language all through middle school and high school and even during two years of pre-university. All my teachers and professors (lecturers as we used to refer to them) spoke to us in Sanskrit.

    Why does Prof Aich say that sanskrit was not a spoken language? He states as fact that Sanskrit was not a spoken language in India at the time Max Mueller or William Jones came to visit. He also says that he has not studied Sanskrit either. Is that why he doesn’t know that Sanskrit is still a spoken language? I am asking questions out of a sincere desire to understand Prof Aich’s claims. No personal attacks please!

    • Shashi

      Yes there is a village in Karnataka where in all the people speak Sanskrit, but you must know that rest of karnataka people doesnt know this so where would be author know about this but i appreciate him cause he is making statement what Max muller taken away from us

  9. JGN

    A Krishna, there is another village in Orissa (I cannot recollect the name) also where Sanskrit is spoken now. Sanskrit was the language of elite of that time. It was NOT the language of the common people. Majoirty of them (the residents of present day Hindi-belt) were speaking Pali and Ardha Magadi. Since you have studied Sanskrit, you should have been aware of the same.

    India is a continent sized country with over 1600 languages and followers of all major religions in the world. There is no other country in the world with such diversity.

  10. balayogi

    what a great work. indeed india needs more people like you. we indians have this perennial weakness of xenophilia that we believe all the claims of foreingers especially those whose hidden agenda is to malign, mutilate and mar our culture and nature. no wonder we believe when sonia says she studied in cambridge.

  11. A Krishna

    Since I have studied Sanskrit, I am aware that Sanskrit was/is a spoken language at all times in India whether by the elite or the general populace. Prof Aich doesn’t seem to know this and he has based his entire research on a false assumption.

    If in fact Sanskrit was only spoken by the elite at the time of Max Mueller’s visit to India, then he should have encountered it more than if it were only spoken by an odd village here and there.

    • Anonymous

      Sorry friend, Max Muller never visited India. He was worth nothing until he agreed to write for east India company about Indian history and denigrating Vedas so that Indianness among Indians could be killed.

  12. VoP

    So you are willing to follow western swindlers than an Indian researcher!? Time to wakeup.

  13. A Krishna

    I don’t care a whit about Max or any other swindlers. I’m only trying to understand Prof Aich’s theories. Research cannot be deemed credible just because an Indian makes it.

  14. A Krishna

    I’m just trying to understand why Prof Aich states as fact that Sanskrit was not a spoken language.

  15. Sandeep

    @ A Krishna
    “I’m just trying to understand why Prof Aich states as fact that Sanskrit was not a spoken language”
    Read his book.

  16. Aryan

    a bunch of pseudo scholars like Aich are trying to go against stream and want to protect the brahmin community, which exploits religion to its welfare. rubbish India. look ahead, adhere science, fight prejudices. let all dalits unite.

    • amarjeet

      This is latest, xtian donkey in his anger fit forgets one thing, names himself aryan and then barks, all dalits unite. HAHAHAHA These are the jokers who are spoon fed hatred from gora evangelicals, on their own, see for yourself this low IQ inbred retard and his response to the article. HAHAHA
      We are gonna pound you into dust.

  17. Sanatan Dharma is the oldest culture in the world, and there was a time when it was spread throughout the world. People can find swastika in every culture like the American Indians, Greece, troy, Italy, Russia and many other countries have this symbol. Look at the 108 symbols of god in Sanatan Dharma and their origin. Things will become very clear about the origin of humanity in this world. It is time to free ourselves from the lies and deception spread throughout the world about our culture.

    Dont forget, even today in Sanskrit and Hindi the words for Divorce and any other abusive words do not exist. Yet it contains words like Yantra ( machine) and Vimana ( air-craft), which existed far before the western civilization constructed aircraft themselves.

    I gather we have mostly hindu right-wingers here mouthing the supremacy of “ancient” india! Some of the examples are ludicrous. one man says having a word for something before the west invented it shows that we had some such flying thing. guess what, aircraft word is quite old and u know what its older than the aircraft itself. U pick and choose to give evidences from the west, but are scared to talk about the underlying fact of human evolution. did somebody do a check on why muller was criticized for his criticism of Darwin’s theory? i think people should take a chill pill and understand science. the current paper on the mix of ANI and ASI tells a lot about our history. btw when u quote S Radhakrishna, please read his editorial classic on the “History of Philosophy – Eastern and Western – Volume 1-2” avaialable at archive.org. As per Aich they have all got it wrong!

    • Amit

      Why r u scared to talk about maxmuller ? some people may exaggerate glory of Ancient India , but that does not means all criticism of Maxmuller is false , just fault finding in those “who are saying ” something does not makes an argument against “what is being said ”
      Maxmuller was a big fraud and it is indisputably proved by his letters to his wife which are published now , even Maxmuller in the end said Whether Vedas were written 15000 years ago or 1500 B.C. ago … ” , but when he gave the theory of Aryan invasion and 1500 B.C. as Vedas date , he was a superstitious christian with belief that world was created that 4000 B.C. , and that is indeed basis of your Marxist Indology ,

      It is you who have got every thing wrong, your knowledge is infinitely limited.
      You do not see the thousands of years of manipulation that has been done which has left us in complete ruins.

      Even today, Exclusive religions like Christianity and Islam completely threatens our existence.

      Sorry but “unenlightened” people like you need to wake up and smell the coffee.

      India will become a Islamic state within 60 to 100 years at the rate the Islamic people reproduce. If an average Hindu family has 2 children, then a Islamic family has 7.

      Java island is a perfect example. It used to be a Hindu country, now it is 90 % Islamic. This is the same format for terrorism and ethnic cleansing through war of numbers.

    To say that Max müller never studied in Leipzig is not “calling a thing by its right name”. It is quite clear that he learnt Sanskrit in Leipzig and also got his Ph.D. there.

  23. Why did it take India over 100 yrs to challenge max mueller?
    Why didn’t India know itself before mueller?
    Mueller was the springboard for aich’s introspection. One might consider mueller an important stepping stone to heightened awareness.

    • JGN


      1) Max Mueller’s hypothesis was ridiculed during his life time itself.

      2) The Indian subcontinent had a civilized life when most of the other continents were still in the Stone-age. The ancient Indian literatures like
      Vedas, Upanishads, Ramayana, Mahabharata, etc were written a few thousand of years before Max Mueller’s birth!!!

      3) Max Mueller was only a fraud who wanted to prove that some imaginary Aryans had invaded the Indian sub-continent before the arrvial fo Islamic Invaders and European Colonizers. His and his pay-master’s intention was to “prove” to the Pagans/Hathens in India that sicne they were invaded by some others earlier, there was nothing wrong if the European Christians also invaded them!!!

      Sushruta who lived around 800 BCE was an Indian surgeon and is the author of the book Sushruta Samhita, in which he describes over 300 surgical procedures and 120 surgical instruments and classifies human surgery in eight categories. He lived, taught and practiced his art on the banks of the Ganges in the area that corresponds to the present day city of Varanasi in North India. What exactly can such a civilization learn from a fraud like Max Mueller?

      If we go by the same argument, why it took over 1600 years after The Bible was written to prove that Earth is NOT the centre of theUniverse? Or do you still believe that Earth is the Centre of the Universe?

      Christianity was built over the Celtic Civilization which was warped from within by the people of Old testament, they are the real enemies who are just shooting off the backs of Christians, while they enjoy the fight from a far.

      Same thing with Islam, which was warped by the agent of the old testament “Mohammad” to destroy the Arabs of the middle east, and then use them at the same time as a weapon.

      Its time you all understand the source of the Abrahmic Religion which has been cause the darkness that befalls this planet.

      Jewish Hitler used the term “Aryan” and swastika to create the anti-Semitic barrier against us, do you see the source of the problem? Lets direct our efforts towards the source of the Dark menace.

      Max Muller was challenged by Maharshi Dayanand Sarsati during his life time. Swami ji wrote to him that his bhasya (translation) was not correct by giving examples of sutras of Panini Sankrit grammer the oldest grammer to get true meanings of olden litratures.. Rigvedadi Bhasyabhumika and Satyarth Prakash of Swamiji may be seen .

    Max Mueller had assumed that he was a scholar. From his own autobiography, from biographies written by his son and wife. After passing the High School, he never appeared in any examination rather never cleared any examination. So obviously he can not possess any academic degrees. Yet he calls himself a Master of Arts (MA). His wife calls him a Doctor of Philosophy. His wife maintains that he was a Ph. D. from the Leipzig University. There is no record at the Leipzig University or any proof that he appeared in any examination there.

    Respected Sir,

    A wonderful blog. Well, I have some doubts. Please consider this:

    The Sanscrit language, whatever be its antiquity, is of a wonderful structure; more perfect than the Greek, more copious than the Latin, and more exquisitely refined than either, yet bearing to both of them a stronger affinity, both in the roots of verbs and the forms of grammar, than could possibly have been produced by accident; so strong indeed, that no philologer could examine them all three, without believing them to have sprung from some common source, which, perhaps, no longer exists; there is a similar reason, though not quite so forcible, for supposing that both the Gothic and the Celtic, though blended with a very different idiom, had the same origin with the Sanscrit; and the old Persian might be added to the same family.
    Said by William Jones in 1788.
    Do you still consider him a fraud. Please explain – thanks

    • Anon

      Its a deceptive statement made by William Jones to merely confuse people, just like you are trying to do.

      The true source of all languages always has been Sanskrit.

      British East India company was owned by Jews.

      First director of British East India company was jewish.

      German Jew Rothschild owned British East india company and all of its finances.

      Max muller = German Jew

      William Jones = Jewish

      Hence, Aryan Invasion theory was made by Jews.

      Christian Jesuits have Jewish Ancestry.

      India was enslaved at a whole new level with Debt based currency and economy.

      We never achieved freedom, as we are enslaved via Economic warfare.

      Indian National Congress was Set up by British East India company as a puppet government.

      Walmart, Starbucks, IKEA etc all uses human slaves to make their cheap items, and they are all owned by Jews.

      Walmart is waiting for march Re-election so they can invade India and destroy us at a whole new level.

      Starbucks, IKEA have already taken 100 % ownership, they will reap all the profits and we will be impoverished by their evil system.

      • Anon

        Forgot to mention that in 1844, the prime minister of Britain was Benjamin Disraeli = Jewish

        This clearly proves that Britain was completely owned by Jews and it has been a Jewish mind that has been plotting to take over the world.

        It would not be surprising to find that Sonia Gandhi who is a roman Catholic turns out to be a “Crypto- Jew”.

        Yes, read about Crypto Judaism, which is aimed to invade all cultures and control it from within.

        Lets consider again why Hitler was associated with Sanskrit terms “Swastika, and Aryan” When india used to be called “Aryavrata” and the true natives of India are Aryans?

        They were Known as “Zealots” and they were the first people on the planet associated with the Term “Terrorism”, hence they are the original terrorist of the planet.

    The British people Waked up our secular- worldly Intellect, whether you say yes or no.Why did not you make an helicopter or flight before it was done by western people, if it was explained in vedas.

    Can you wipe out Muslims ruling in India…In case the British had not come in to this land..? The world runs on give and take law…As invaders they have taken and at the same time we have benefited a lot…you ask your conscious without having any bias…

      We did not make a helicopter because it was not necessary to make one.Now read history to know that Islamic rulers of India were comprehensively defeated by Hindus-the Marathas , the sikhs and the jats.And let me tell you one thing clearly that we have not learned anything from the invaders -be they Islamic invaders or the British.

    • Indian

      @Murthy,you are wrong.
      “Britishers snatched India from Muslims in connivance with Hindu baniyas” — this is the argument very often heard in Pakistan and some Muslim circles in India.
      Well,in a map of India of 1760. As one can see, most of India is under the control of the Marathas. Bengal by this time was captured by the British through the battles of Buxar and Plassey. So what exactly were Muslims holding in 1760? They were holding only the area which is now Pakistan (Sindh, Multan, Lahore, Kashmir), Awadh (today’s eastern UP) and Nizam’s dominion in the south. That is all. (Mysore state was ruled by the Hindu Wodeyars.)
      Muslims were esentially ruling only 25 percent of Indian land, while Marathas were ruling 60 percent. Soon Maharaja Ranjeet Singh also conquered entire modern-day Pakistan, thus further shrinking the land under Muslim rule drastically. Combined with Marathas and Sikhs, the Indic faiths were ruling 90 percent of India. So what is this hogwash about Muslism taking India from the British? If Goras had not arrived on the scene, Hindus and Sikhs would have retaken the whole of India in another 30 years, thus winning the civilisational war that was started by the Afghan and Arab Muslims when they invaded Hindus in their own homeland, carrying their “true god / false god” ideology with them.
      The fight for India was between Marathas and the John Company (as East India Company was often called). In fact, Marathas were ruling from the Red Fort in Delhi and the Mughal emperor was recieving a pension from them.
      The battle for Delhi and the tradional seat of Mughal power was fought between Maratha army and British army (led by general Gerard Lake) on the banks of the Yamuna river. It is called the Battle of Patparganj. A memorial to this battle erected by the British government still exists inside the Noida golf course.

      Algebra, Trigonometry and Calculus are studies, which originated in India.* Ayurveda is the earliest school of medicine known to mankind. The Father of Medicine, Charaka, consolidated Ayurveda 2500 years ago.* India was one of the richest countries till the time of British rule in the early 17th Century. Christopher Columbus, attracted by India’s wealth, had come looking for a sea route to India when he discovered America by mistake.The Art of Navigation & Navigating was born in the river Sindh over 6000 years ago. The very word Navigation is derived from the Sanskrit word ‘NAVGATIH’. The word navy is also derived from the Sanskrit word ‘Nou’.Bhaskaracharya rightly calculated the time taken by the earth to orbit the Sun hundreds of years before the astronomer Smart. According to his calculation, the time taken by the Earth to orbit the Sun was 365.258756484 days.The value of “pi” was first calculated by the Indian Mathematician Budhayana, and he explained the concept of what is known as the Pythagorean Theorem. He discovered this in the 6th century, long before the European mathematicians.Quadratic Equations were used by Sridharacharya in the 11th century. The largest numbers the Greeks and the Romans used were 106 whereas Hindus used numbers as big as 10*53 (i.e. 10 to the power of 53) with specific names as early as 5000 B.C.during the Vedic period.Even today, the largest used number is Terra: 10*12(10 to the power of 12).Until 1896, India was the only source of diamonds in the world
      (Source: Gemological Institute of America).
      Sushruta is regarded as the Father of Surgery. Over2600 years ago Sushrata & his team conducted complicated surgeries like cataract, artificial limbs, cesareans, fractures, urinary stones, plastic surgery and brain surgeries.Usage of anaesthesia was well known in ancient Indian medicine. Detailed knowledge of anatomy, embryology, digestion, metabolism,physiology, etiology, genetics and immunity is also found in many ancient Indian texts.Varanasi, also known as Benaras, was called “the Ancient City” when Lord Buddha visited it in 500 B.C., and is the oldest, continuously inhabited city in the world today.
      Martial Arts were first created in India, and later spread to Asia by Buddhist missionaries.Yoga has its origins in India and has existed for over 5,000 years.

      The British people Waked up our secular- worldly Intellect, This statement is wrong.

      Swami Vivekananda said about British people on dated 20th September 1893

      Christians must always be ready for good criticism and I hardly
      think that you will mind if I make a little criticism- you
      Christians, who are so fond of sending out missionaries to save the
      soul of the heathen – why do you not try to save their bodies from
      starvation? In India, during the terrible famines, thousands died
      from hunger, yet you Christians did nothing. you erect churches
      all through India, but the crying evil in the East is not religion
      – they have religion enough -but it is bread that the suffering
      millions of burning India cry out for with parched throats. They
      ask us for bread, but we give them stones. It is an insult to the
      starving people to offer them religion; it is an insult to the
      starving man to teach him metaphysics. In India a priest that
      preached for money would lose caste and be spat upon by the people.
      I came here to seek aid for my impoverished people, and I filly
      realized how difficult it was to get help for heathens from
      Christians in a Christian land.
      Now look at the list of Famines in British India between 1765 and 1947

      Year,Name of famine (if any),British territory

      [3]1791–92 ,Doji bara famine or Skull famine Hyderabad, Southern Maratha country, Deccan, Gujarat, and Marwar One of the most severe famines known. People died in such numbers that they could not be cremated or buried. It is thought that 11 million people may have died during the years 1788–94
      [4]1837–38 ,Agra famine of 1837–38,Central Doab and trans-Jumna districts of the North-Western Provinces (later Agra Province), including Delhi and Hissar800,000
      [5]1860–61Upper Doab of Agra; Delhi and Hissar divisions of the Punjab,Eastern Rajputana,2 million
      [6]1865–67,Orissa famine of 1866,Orissa (also 1867) and Bihar; Bellary and Ganjam districts of Madras,1 million (814,469 in Orissa, 135,676 in Bihar and 10,898 in Ganjam)

      [8]1873–74,Bihar famine of 1873–74,Bihar,An extensive relief effort was organized by the Bengal government.
      [9]1876–78Great Famine of 1876–78 (also Southern India famine of 1876–78)Madras and BombayMysore and Hyderabad6.1 to 10.3 million
      [10]1888–89Ganjam, Orissa and North Bihar150,000 deaths Ganjam. Deaths were due to starvation as famine relief was not provided in time.
      [11]1896–97,Indian famine of 1896–97, Madras, Bombay Deccan, Bengal, United Provinces, Central Provinces,Northern and eastern Rajputana, parts of Central India and Hyderabad,5 million
      [12]1899–1900,Indian famine of 1899–1900,Bombay, Central Provinces, Berar, Ajmer,Hyderabad, Rajputana, Central India, Baroda, Kathiawar, Cutch,1 million
      [14]1943–44,Bengal famine of 1943, Bengal,4.5 million.
      Now,please tell me,

      Is it not time that the descendants of the victims of The Great Holocaust of Bengal sought compensation from the present Government of the United Kingdom? Is it possible to initiate a criminal case against Winston Churchill and all those who were in power during 1942-45 (or during 1765-1947) in British Government? Is that too much to ask for? Do you believe that the systematic murder of six million white-skinned Jews was a crime worthy of punishment, while the killing of thirty million black-skinned people of Bengal does not even deserve a footnote in history?
      Now,please change your mind about British people ,they are real…….

    @ Murthy, the Islamic invaders and European Christian colonizers had their own agenda. They were not here to improve the lot of the natives. What ever they had done was for the furtherance of their own interest (be it English education for the natives or laying of Railway lines). Of course some of their works have benefitted the natives but that was only an unintended effect.

    Btw Ravana had an “Arcraft” which he used for kidnapping Sita. The Persians had “Flying-carpet” even during the time of Calipha Haroon-Al-Rashid of Bhagdad. So it was not “Right-brothers” who had invented the Aircrafts for the first time!!!!!!

    @ Murthy
    List of nine processes all over the world intend to create sectarian hatred, ethnic divisions, racism, and religious wars by US and its allies (when tribal, ethnic, confessional, and religious animosity is ignited in one country, it will spill over into other countries) The Arabs, Iran, and Turkey are being lined up for a major conflict, because the US is losing its superpower status. All that remains of Washington’s superpower status is its military power.:
    (1) During its civil war Lebanon not formally breaking up. Lebonization, a soft form of balkanization.
    What is worth noting is that just a few weeks earlier officials in Tel Aviv were threatening to attack Lebanon again, saying that they would totally destroy Lebanon in a third Israeli-Lebanese war.
    (2) It has already taken place in Iraq under federalism. Western Europe, Israel, and Turkey – begins to act more and more as if Northern Iraq or Iraqi Kurdistan is a separate country from the rest of Iraq.
    Lebonization, as mentioned earlier, has also taken root in Iraq as the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) with foreign support – specifically foreign support from the US.
    Turkey, which maintains close ties to the KRG, has also been encouraging this behavior and has even treated the KRG like a national government by having diplomatic contacts without consulting the Iraqi government in Baghdad. The leaders of the KRG are also allowing their country to be used as a Mossad operation base against Syria and Iran.
    (3)Dividing the Syrian Arab Republic is the end goal of Washington in Syria. Britain’s Maplecroft, which specializes in consulting on strategic risk, has said that we are witnessing the balkanization of the Syrian state: “Kurds in the north, Druze in the southern hills, Alawites in the coastal northwestern mountainous region and the Sunni majority elsewhere.” which means that Syria will be divided along violent sectarian fault lines and face political deadlock.
    (4) Libya has been neutralized and divided by various groups .
    (5)The problems in Libya have spilled into Niger and Chad and the problems in Syria are spilling over into Turkey and Lebanon.
    (6)Egypt is the venue of revolutionary and counter-revolutionary currents that have kept the largest Arab power busy with its attention on domestic politics. While Egypt is facing domestic upheaval, the US is attempting to play the country’s military and the Muslim Brotherhood against one another.
    (7)Before the upheavals Sudan was formally balkanized by Tel Aviv and Washington through the manipulation of identity politics, which led to the secession of South Sudan.
    (8)Washington seems to be dreaming of this scenario: Kurdish revolts taking place in Syria, Turkey, Iraq, and Iran; sectarian civil wars consuming Iraq, Lebanon, Syria, Turkey, and Yemen in fire; instability and fighting bleeding Algeria, Egypt, Libya, Pakistan, and Sudan; Berbers and Arabs fighting one another across North Africa; insecurity and political uncertainty spreading in Central Asia; a war in the South Caucasus consuming Georgia, Armenia, and the Republic of Azerbaijan; revolts igniting amongst the Balkars, Chechens, Circassians, Dagestanis, Ingush, and other local Caucasian peoples against Russia in the North Caucasus; the Persian Gulf being a zone of instability; and Russia at loggerheads with the European Union and Turkey. Such a conflagration is steadily being buoyed by Washington.

    (8)The events in the Middle East and North Africa are seeing the animation of mass movements against local tyrants, like in Bahrain, Jordan, Morocco, and Saudi Arabia, but there is also a vicious script from Israel’s Yinon Plan and its offshoots.
    The Yinon Plan and similar schemes want a contrived Shiite-Sunni war amongst the Muslims as the central piece of the sectarian divisions – or fitna in Arabic – that are to include Christian-Muslim, Arab-Berber, Arab-Iranian, Arab-Turkish, and Iranian-Turkish animosity.
    (9) Aryan –Dravidian conflict in India by the fake ideology of Dravidian Christianity breaking India into mutual hostile camps is in the process.

    The world famous historian, Will Durant has written in his Story of Civilisation that “the Mohammedan conquest of India was probably the bloodiest story in history”.

    Hindus were witnessing a scene which was described by Kanhadade Prabandha (1456 AD) in the following words:

    “The conquering army burnt villages, devastated the land, plundered people’s wealth, took Brahmins and children and women of all classes captive, flogged with thongs of raw hide, carried a moving prison with it, and converted the prisoners into obsequious Turks.”

    That was written in remembrance of Alauddin Khalji’s invasion of Gujarat in the year l298 AD. But the gruesome game had started three centuries earlier when Mahmud Ghaznavi had vowed to invade India every year in order to destroy idolatry, kill the kafirs, capture prisoners of war, and plunder vast wealth for which India was well-known.


    In 1000 AD Mahmud defeated Raja Jaipal, a scion of the Hindu Shahiya dynasty of Kabul. This dynasty had been for long the doorkeeper of India in the Northwest. Mahmud collected 250,000 dinars as indemnity. That perhaps was normal business of an empire builder. But in 1004 AD he stormed Bhatiya and plundered the place. He stayed there for some time to convert the Hindus to Islam with the help of mullahs he had brought with him.

    In 1008 AD he captured Nagarkot (Kangra). The loot amounted to 70,000,000 dirhams in coins and 700,400 mans of gold and silver, besides plenty of precious stones and embroidered cloths. In 1011 AD he plundered Thanesar which was undefended, destroyed many temples, and broke a large number of idols. The chief idol, that of Chakraswamin, was taken to Ghazni and thrown into the public square for defilement under the feet of the faithful.

    According to Tarikh-i-Yamini of Utbi, Mahmud’s secretary,

    “The blood of the infidels flowed so copiously [at Thanesar] that the stream was discolored, notwithstanding its purity, and people were unable to drink it. The Sultan returned with plunder which is impossible to count. Praise he to Allah for the honor he bestows on Islam and Muslims.”

    In 1013 AD Mahmud advanced against Nandana where the Shahiya king, Anandapal, had established his new capital. The Hindus fought very hard but lost. Again, the temples were destroyed, and innocent citizens slaughtered. Utbi provides an account of the plunder and the prisoners of war:

    “The Sultan returned in the rear of immense booty, and slaves were so plentiful that they became very cheap and men of respectability in their native land were degraded by becoming slaves of common shopkeepers. But this is the goodness of Allah, who bestows honor on his own religion and degrades infidelity.”

    The road was now clear for an assault on the heartland of Hindustan. In December 1018 AD Mahmud crossed the Yamuna, collected 1,000,000 dirhams from Baran (Bulandshahar), and marched to Mahaban in Mathura district. Utbi records:

    “The infidels…deserted the fort and tried to cross the foaming river…but many of them were slain, taken or drowned… Nearly fifty thousand men were killed.”

    Mathura was the next victim. Mahmud seized five gold idols weighing 89,300 missals and 200 silver idols. According to Utbi, “The Sultan gave orders that all the temples should be burnt with naptha and fire, and levelled with the ground.” The pillage of the city continued for 20 days. Mahmud now turned towards Kanauj which had been the seat of several Hindu dynasties. Utbi continues: “In Kanauj there were nearly ten thousand temples… Many of the inhabitants of the place fled in consequence of witnessing the fate of their deaf and dumb idols. Those who did not fly were put to death. The Sultan gave his soldiers leave to plunder and take prisoners.”

    The Brahmins of Munj, which was attacked next, fought to the last man after throwing their wives and children into fire. The fate of Asi was sealed when its ruler took fright and fled. According to Utbi, “…. the Sultan ordered that his five forts should be demolished from their foundations, the inhabitants buried in their ruins, and the soldiers of the garrison plundered, slain and captured”.

    Shrawa, the next important place to be invaded, met the same fate. Utbi concludes:

    “The Muslims paid no regard to the booty till they had satiated themselves with the slaughter of the infidels and worshipers of sun and fire. The friends of Allah searched the bodies of the slain for three days in order to obtain booty…The booty amounted in gold and silver, rubies and pearls nearly to three hundred thousand dirhams, and the number of prisoners may be conceived from the fact that each was sold for two to ten dirhams. These were afterwards taken to Ghazni and merchants came from distant cities to purchase them, so that the countries of Mawaraun-Nahr, Iraq and Khurasan were filled with them, and the fair and the dark, the rich and the poor, were commingled in one common slavery.”

    Mahmud’s sack of Somnath is too well-known to be retold here. What needs emphasizing is that the fragments of the famous Sivalinga were carried to Ghazni. Some of them were turned into steps of the Jama Masjid in that city. The rest were sent to Mecca, Medina, and Baghdad to be desecrated in the same manner.

    Mahmud’s son Masud tried to follow in the footsteps of his father. In 1037 AD he succeeded in sacking the fort of Hansi which was defended very bravely by the Hindus. The Tarikh-us-Subuktigin records: “The Brahmins and other high ranking men were slain, and their women and children were carried away captive, and all the treasure which was found was distributed among the army.”

    Masud could not repeat the performance due to his preoccupations elsewhere.


    Invasion of India by Islamic imperialism was renewed by Muhmmad Ghori in the last quarter of the 12th century. After Prithiviraj Chauhan had been defeated in 1192 AD, Ghori took Ajmer by assault.

    According the Taj-ul-Ma’sir of Hasan Nizami, “While the Sultan remained at Ajmer, he destroyed the pillars and foundations of the idol temples and built in their stead mosques and colleges and precepts of Islam, and the customs of the law were divulged and established.”

    Next year he defeated Jayachandra of Kanauj. A general massacre, rapine, and pillage followed. The Gahadvad treasuries at Asni and Varanasi were plundered. Hasan Nizami rejoices that “in Benares which is the centre of the country of Hind, they destroyed one thousand temples and raised mosques on their foundations”.

    According to Kamil-ut-Tawarikh of Ibn Asir, “The slaughter of Hindus (at Varanasi) was immense; none were spared except women and children, and the carnage of men went on until the earth was weary.”

    The women and children were spared so that they could be enslaved and sold all over the Islamic world. It may be added that the Buddhist complex at Sarnath was sacked at this time, and the Bhikshus were slaughtered.

    Ghori’s lieutenant Qutbuddin Aibak was also busy meanwhile. Hasan Nizami writes that after the suppression of a Hindu revolt at Kol (modern day Aligarh) in 1193 AD, Aibak raised “three bastions as high as heaven with their heads, and their carcases became food for beasts of prey. The tract was freed from idols and idol worship and the foundations of infidelism were destroyed.”

    In 1194 AD Aibak destroyed 27 Hindu temples at Delhi and built the Quwwat-ul-lslam mosque with their debris. According to Nizami, Aibak “adorned it with the stones and gold obtained from the temples which had been demolished by elephants”.

    In 1195 AD the Mher tribe of Ajmer rose in revolt, and the Chaulukyas of Gujarat came to their assistance. Aibak had to invite reinforcements from Ghazni before he could meet the challenge. In 1196 AD he advanced against Anahilwar Patan, the capital of Gujarat. Nizami writes that after Raja Karan was defeated and forced to flee, “fifty thousand infidels were dispatched to hell by the sword” and “more than twenty thousand slaves, and cattle beyond all calculation fell into the hands of the victors”.

    The city was sacked, its temples demolished, and its palaces plundered. On his return to Ajmer, Aibak destroyed the Sanskrit College of Visaladeva, and laid the foundations of a mosque which came to be known as ‘Adhai Din ka Jhompada’.

    Conquest of Kalinjar in 1202 AD was Aibak’s crowning achievement. Nizami concludes: “The temples were converted into mosques… Fifty thousand men came under the collar of slavery and the plain became black as pitch with Hindus.”

    A free-lance adventurer, Muhammad Bakhtyar Khalji, was moving further east. In 1200 AD he sacked the undefended university town of Odantpuri in Bihar and massacred the Buddhist monks in the monasteries. In 1202 AD he took Nadiya by surprise. Badauni records in his Muntakhab-ut-Tawarikh that “property and booty beyond computation fell into the hands of the Muslims and Muhammad Bakhtyar having destroyed the places of worship and idol temples of the infidels founded mosques and Khanqahs”.


    Shamsuddin Iltutmish who succeeded Aibak at Delhi invaded Malwa in 1234 AD. He destroyed an ancient temple at Vidisha. Badauni reports in his ‘Muntakhab-ut-Tawarikh’:

    “Having destroyed the idol temple of Ujjain which had been built six hundred years previously, and was called Mahakal, he levelled it to its foundations, and threw down the image of Rai Vikramajit from whom the Hindus reckon their era, and brought certain images of cast molten brass and placed them on the ground in front of the doors of mosques of old Delhi, and ordered the people of trample them under foot.”

    Muslim power in India suffered a serious setback after Iltutmish. Balkan had to battle against a revival of Hindu power. The Katehar Rajputs of what came to be known as Rohilkhand in later history, had so far refused to submit to Islamic imperialism. Balkan led an expedition across the Ganges in 1254 AD. According to Badauni,

    “In two days after leaving Delhi, he arrived in the midst of the territory of Katihar and put to death every male, even those of eight years of age, and bound the women.”

    But in spite of such wanton cruelty, Muslim power continued to decline till the Khaljis revived it after 1290 AD.


    Jalaluddin Khalji led an expedition to Ranthambhor in 1291 AD. On the way he destroyed Hindu temples at Chain. The broken idols were sent to Delhi to be spread before the gates of the Jama Masjid. His nephew Alauddin led an expedition to Vidisha in 1292 AD. According to Badauni in Muntakhab-ut-Tawarikh, Alauddin “brought much booty to the Sultan and the idol which was the object of worship of the Hindus, he caused to be cast in front of the Badaun gate to be trampled upon by the people. The services of Alauddin were highly appreciated, the jagir of Oudh (or Avadh – Central U.P.) also was added to his other estates.”

    Alauddin became Sultan in 1296 AD after murdering his uncle and father-in-law, Jalaluddin. In 1298 AD he equipped an expedition to Gujarat under his generals Ulugh Khan and Nusrat Khan. The invaders plundered the ports of Surat and Cambay. The temple of Somnath, which had been rebuilt by the Hindus, was plundered and the idol taken to Delhi for being trodden upon by the Muslims. The whole region was subjected to fire and sword, and Hindus were slaughtered en masse. Kampala Devi, the queen of Gujarat, was captured along with the royal treasury, brought to Delhi and forced into Alauddin’s harem. The doings of the Malik Naib during his expedition to South India in 1310-1311 AD have already mentioned in earlier parts.


    Muslim power again suffered a setback after the death of Alauddin Khalji in 1316 AD. But it was soon revived by the Tughlaqs. By now most of the famous temples over the length and breadth of the Islamic occupation in India had been demolished, except in Orissa and Rajasthan which had retained their independence. By now most of the rich treasuries had been plundered and shared between the Islamic state and its swordsmen. Firuz Shah Tughlaq led an expedition to Orissa in 1360 AD. He destroyed the temple of Jagannath at Puri, and desecrated many other Hindu shrines. According to ‘Sirat-i-Firoz Shahi’ which he himself wrote or dictated,

    “Allah who is the only true God and has no other emanation, endowed the king of Islam with the strength to destroy this ancient shrine on the eastern sea-coast and to plunge it into the sea, and after its destruction he ordered the image of Jagannath to be perforated, and disgraced it by casting it down on the ground. They dug out other idols which were worshipped by the polytheists in the kingdom of Jajnagar and overthrew them as they did the image of Jagannath, for being laid in front of the mosques along the path of the Sunnis and the way of the ‘musallis’ (Muslim congregation for namaz) and stretched them in front of the portals of every mosque, so that the body and sides of the images might be trampled at the time of ascent and descent, entrance and exit, by the shoes on the feet of the Muslims.”

    After the sack of the temples in Orissa, Firoz Shah Tughlaq attacked an island on the sea-coast where “nearly 100,000 men of Jajnagar had taken refuge with their women, children, kinsmen and relations”. The swordsmen of Islam turned “the island into a basin of blood by the massacre of the unbelievers”.

    A worse fate overtook the Hindu women. Sirat-i-Firuz Shahs records: “Women with babies and pregnant ladies were haltered, manacled, fettered and enchained, and pressed as slaves into service in the house of every soldier.”

    Still more horrible scenes were enacted by Firuz Shah Tughlaq at Nagarkot (Kangra) where he sacked the shrine of Jvalamukhi. Firishta records that the Sultan “broke the idols of Jvalamukhi, mixed their fragments with the flesh of cows and hung them in nose bags round the necks of Brahmins. He sent the principal idol as trophy to Medina.”


    In 1931 AD the Muslims of Gujarat complained to Nasiruddin Muhammad, the Tughlaq Sultan of Delhi, that the local governor, Kurhat-ul-Mulk, was practising tolerance towards the Hindus. The Sultan immediately appointed Muzzaffar Khan as the new Governor. He became independent after the death of the Delhi Sultan and assumed the title of Muzzaffar Shah in 1392 AD. Next year he led an expidition to Somnath and sacked the temple which the Hindus had built once again. He killed many Hindus to chastise them for this “impudence,” and raised a mosque on the site of the ancient temple. The Hindus, however, restarted restoring the temple soon after. In 1401 AD Muzaffar came back with a huge army. He again killed many Hindus, demolished the temple once more, and erected another mosque.

    Muzaffar was succeeded by his grandson, Ahmad Shah, in 1411 AD. Three years later Ahmad appointed a special darogah to destroy all temples throughout Gujarat. In 1415 AD Ahmad invaded Sidhpur where he destroyed the images in Rudramahalaya, and converted the grand temple into a mosque. Sidhpur was renamed Sayyadpur.

    Mahmud Begrha who became the Sultan of Gujarat in 1458 AD was the worst fanatic of this dynasty. One of his vassals was the Mandalika of Junagadh who had never withheld the regular tribute. Yet in 1469 AD Mahmud invaded Junagadh. In reply to the Mandalika’s protests, Mahmud said that he was not interested in money as much as in the spread of Islam. The Mandalika was forcibly converted to Islam and Junagadh was renamed Mustafabad. In 1472 AD Mahmud attacked Dwarka, destroyed the local temples, and plundered the city. Raja Jaya Singh, the ruler of Champaner, and his minister were murdered by Mahmud in cold blood for refusing to embrace Islam after they had been defeated and their country pillaged and plundered. Champaner was renamed Mahmudabad.

    Mahmud Khalji of Malwa (1436-69 AD) also destroyed Hindu temples and built mosques on their sites. He heaped many more insults on the Hindus. Ilyas Shah of Bengal (1339-1379 AD) invaded Nepal and destroyed the temple of Svayambhunath at Kathmandu. He also invaded Orissa, demolished many temples, and plundered many places. The Bahmani sultans of Gulbarga and Bidar considered it meritorious to kill a hundred thousand Hindu men, women, and children every year. They demolished and desecrated temples all over South India.


    The climax came during the invasion of Timur in 1399 AD. He starts by quoting the Quran in his Tuzk-i-Timuri: “O Prophet, make war upon the infidels and unbelievers, and treat them severely.”

    He continues: “My great object in invading Hindustan had been to wage a religious war against the infidel Hindus…[so that] the army of Islam might gain something by plundering the wealth and valuables of the Hindus.” To start with he stormed the fort of Kator on the border of Kashmir. He ordered his soldiers “to kill all the men, to make prisoners of women and children, and to plunder and lay waste all their property”. Next, he “directed towers to be built on the mountain of the skulls of those obstinate unbelievers”. Soon after, he laid siege to Bhatnir defended by Rajputs. They surrendered after some fight, and were pardoned. But Islam did not bind Timur to keep his word given to the “unbelievers”. His Tuzk-i-Timuri records:

    “In a short space of time all the people in the fort were put to the sword, and in the course of one hour the heads of 10,000 infidels were cut off. The sword of Islam was washed in the blood of the infidels, and all the goods and effects, the treasure and the grain which for many a long year had been stored in the fort became the spoil of my soldiers. They set fire to the houses and reduced them to ashes, and they razed the buildings and the fort to the ground.”

    At Sarsuti, the next city to be sacked, “all these infidel Hindus were slain, their wives and children were made prisoners and their property and goods became the spoil of the victors”. Timur was now moving through (modern day) Haryana, the land of the Jats. He directed his soldiers to “plunder and destroy and kill every one whom they met”. And so the soldiers “plundered every village, killed the men, and carried a number of Hindu prisoners, both male and female”.

    Loni which was captured before he arrived at Delhi was predominantly a Hindu town. But some Muslim inhabitants were also taken prisoners. Timur ordered that “the Musulman prisoners should be separated and saved, but the infidels should all be dispatched to hell with the proselytizing sword”.

    By now Timur had captured 100,000 Hindus. As he prepared for battle against the Tughlaq army after crossing the Yamuna, his Amirs advised him “that on the great day of battle these 100,000 prisoners could not be left with the baggage, and that it would be entirely opposed to the rules of war to set these idolators and enemies of Islam at liberty”. Therefore, “no other course remained but that of making them all food for the sword”.

    Tuzk-i-Timuri continues:

    “I proclaimed throughout the camp that every man who had infidel prisoners should put them to death, and whoever neglected to do so should himself be executed and his property given to the informer. When this order became known to the ghazis of Islam, they drew their swords and put their prisoners to death. One hundred thousand infidels, impious idolators, were on that day slain. Maulana Nasiruddin Umar, a counselor and man of learning, who, in all his life, had never killed a sparrow, now, in execution of my order, slew with his sword fifteen idolatrous Hindus, who were his captives.”

    The Tughlaq army was defeated in the battle that ensued next day. Timur entered Delhi and learnt that a “great number of Hindus with their wives and children, and goods and valuables, had come into the city from all the country round”.

    He directed his soldiers to seize these Hindus and their property. Tuzk-i-Timuri concludes:

    “Many of them (Hindus) drew their swords and resisted…The flames of strife were thus lighted and spread through the whole city from Jahanpanah and Siri to Old Delhi, burning up all it reached. The Hindus set fire to their houses with their own hands, burned their wives and children in them and rushed into the fight and were killed…On that day, Thursday, and all the night of Friday, nearly 15,000 Turks were engaged in slaying, plundering and destroying. When morning broke on Friday, all my army …went off to the city and thought of nothing but killing, plundering and making prisoners….The following day, Saturday the 17th, all passed in the same way, and the spoil was so great.that each man secured from fifty to a hundred prisoners, men, women, and children. There was no man who took less than twenty. The other booty was immense in rubies, diamonds, garnets, pearls, and other gems and jewels; ashrafis, tankas of gold and silver of the celebrated Alai coinage: vessels of gold and silver; and brocades and silks of great value. Gold and silver ornaments of Hindu women were obtained in such quantities as to exceed all account. Excepting the quarter of the Saiyids, the Ulama and the other Musulmans, the whole city was sacked.”

      @ Dr. Narenda (who holds a Triple doctorate, one in Biblical Theology, one in Mughal History and another in Vedic Sciences)

      You have already shared your insightful opinions about the Bible, revamped your Advaita vedanta through quantum physics and also sound like a firm believer in CERN that you made this statement

      “Hence ,with the experimentation with Large Hadron Collider (LHC) ( world’s largest and highest-energy particle accelerator). our Adwaita or non-dualist theory will be proved perfect and scientific.” – Scientist Narendra

      I do agree with our scientist and shared my humble responses, so could you plz act bravely and address my views, as I think it is impossible to prove advaita from Science; I feel you are using your “superior” interpretive skills by claiming all the painstaking efforts of inventors to your own religion.

      Why not Come out and refute me ??? and stand by your words; if you are feeling bitter at least show it out by educating us more with your gyan on the Bible. I have absolutely no problems in listening to scholars like you. So, You are invited to the other thread (march 2009, Have Christians reached…) and share your opinions and research with us there.

      Going by your level of intellect and broad mindedness, I think I can give our readers a very interesting and enjoyable time by sharing correspondence with a honourable and world renewed scholar like you.

      Thanking You,

      Chennai, Your admirer and fan,

    All that English you have known and written here is happened by English people .Other wise can you talk in sanskrit to the whole world..?..Accept truth …don’t argue…this is the main reason we had been slaves for centuries ..not accepting practicality…but making argument with vain talk….I respect sanskrit but I am sane enough to realize its position in the present context..!!

    Max Muller was a confused human being. His writings relating to the Vedas and India as a whole was his subconscious self filled with prejudice, his twisted view of the world, an urge to equate everything to invasions. Many invasions happened. It was about materials and religions. Muller’s quotes clearly shows his mindset. He wanted India to lose its ancient culture and somehow forcing or brainwashing Hindus into Christians or Islam would change India’s fate for the better? He was in a dream world. Ancient India was in a peaceful stage before.You know why? Because Kali Yuga didn’t start yet. Once Kali Yuga started people became Adharmic The problem with India is not Sanatan Dharma or the various aspects of Hinduism or Idols. Her problem is her own divisions created by her own children, both ancient and recent troubles with corrupution and foolish infighting. We’ve had and still have people within India fighting like fools. All castes are corrupt due to the effects of Kali Yuga. Powerful Sages and people who followed Dharma hated corruption. Even the Gods were against it. Indra was busy fighting Asuras but he himself turned Asuric at certain points in time. His desire for materials and power is what brought him down. He became too arrogant almost as arrogant as Ravana.

    History of British in India. The reason why the British invaded is because they saw divisions within India. Thanks to the Mughal Barbarians and foolish Kings supporting them against other Indians. By the time the Europeans arrived our foolish kings and subjects injured India to a point where she almost succumbed to the injuries. Dharma is what kept her alive even during turbulent times. Her long injuries is what gave the British an oppurtunity to use one section of India against the other and in the end the British laughed at the fools who supported him. The same fools supported the Mughals and earlier barbarians against his own kind, regardless of caste. Hindus used these barbarians against other Hindus. Dharma was assaulted the most during this point of Kali Yuga. Courage dwindled and enough fools were bought and sold like coins for a price. Men were brought and sold but Dharma cannot be brought because selling Dharma is the same as selling your soul for a price.

    Back to Muller. This confused man wasn’t a historian or a scientist. His ramblings about Indus Valley disgusted me. The Indus Valley Culture was far advanced compared to Germany in 3500 B.C, 2500 B.C or 1500 B.C. Muller should’ve gotten out of his Germanic invasive and barbaric mindset looked closely at Indus Valley. No Evidence of Invasions seen. Only theories created by confused fools. The real cause of it’s end was due to a long draught. Newly done research has facts to back it up. Indra didn’t destroy Indus Valley and Vritra wasn’t a dark skinned human being. Vritra was a supernatural entity. The wars mentioned in the Vedas and other ancient Texts are of supernatural proportions. Devas and Asuras are supernatural beings. Their battles were fought on a different plane. It is not a battle between two tiny human beings with earthly weapons. This Muller guy translated the Vedas and twisted it to a point where foolish Nazis used it as propaganda. How can a human being tolerate such abuse of his own history by confused or oppurtunistic human beings? You cannot tell a Lion, his father is a cunning fox when the Lion clearly knows what runs in his veins. Max Muller lost my respect. He isn’t a historian. He was a cunning fox. Cunning behavior doesn’t suit any skin color. Translating the Vedic Texts into the Germanic language and twisting it to suit his needs was truly cunning on his part. Please never ever abuse history in such a shameful way. If people with a Muller mindset reads this, my point is Hindus never tell Christians, Muslims or anyone to become Hindu. All religions lead to God but if you force yourself upon another how can you find God? You can be of any religion but how can you find peace when you can’t live and let live? Sanatan Dharma does not tell its followers to convert others. Indians welcomed everyone like guests but we even invited poisonous snakes who took advantage of our culture. All Indians have a common ancestor. Even people of Islam and Christianty are descended from Hindus. My request to Brahmin or any caste love each other. Don’t fight. Fighting between Kshatriyas is what hurt India once. Don’t repeat the same mistake. Even our ancestors will hate us if we fight each others on the lines of castes or republics. You can reach Bhagavan regardless of your caste. All that matters is do your Dharmic duty.

    Om Tat Sat.
