Today Nalanda stands ruined, its magnificent library burnt because it contained not Quran and its monks slaughtered by the ‘Sword of Islam.’
Due to invasion of the Muslims to India over Ten Hundred years ago, the immemorial systems, rule and customs of her people were subjected to a series of rude shocks, and in the course of time underwent certain modifications. For nearly, eight centuries the activities of India’s Muslim rulers practically dominated the pages of Indian History. Nalanda the great Buddhist center of learning philosophy and other secular crafts flourished under the Hindu rule of Guptas. In fact, under Gupta rule it reached its zenith. Today it stands ruined, its magnificent library burnt because it contained not Quran and its monks slaughtered by ‘the sword of Islam’.
Most of the time the Muslim invaders found only charred remains of women when they entered the Hindu cities in India. .For example, when Allaud-din Khilji cowardly attacked Rajputs from behind, butchered them and entered Chitoor, Rani Padmini and more than 20,000 maidens had self-immolated. To this day Hindus remember the great queen with pride.
All religions teach only mankind and we will not get a good name by sword. India still stand with its old culture and Dharma and no-body can destroy it. And all gods teaches the same messages only.
The old Indian life weathered the prolonged and at time severe storm, and still endures little changed.
