Timurs autobiography of invading india

Recommended Posts

I found a really cool account of Timur relating how he conquered india. He was brutal.but he lists in detail every city he invaded and how many people he killed.

But one can see how islam motivated him and his hatred for idolators:

Heres an excerpt from his infamous sack of delhi:

For these various reasons a great number of fierce Turkish troops were in the city. When the soldiers proceeded to apprehend the Hindus and infidels who had fled to Delhi, many of them drew their swords and offered resistance. The flames of strife thus lighted spread through the entire city from Jahan-panah and Siri to Old Delhi, consuming all they reached. The savage Turks fell to killing and plundering, while 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. The Hindus and infidels of the city showed much alacrity and boldness in fighting. The amirs who were in charge of the gates prevented any more soldiers from entering Delhi, but the

So the hindu set their houses, wealth, wives and children  on fire and then went out to fight. 

I guess they did that to preserve the honour of their women because othwise they would of been raped and sold in markets.

Some of the infidels held out in their defiles for three

Page 189

days and nights, but sending my valiant troops against them, I so pressed them that they were obliged to surrender and beg for quarter. I sent Ak Sultan to them with the message that if they would submit unconditionally and would all become Mussulmans and repeat the creed, I would grant them quarter, but otherwise I would exterminate them to a man. When Ak Sultan reached the infidels with this message, which he explained to them through the medium of an interpreter conversant both with their language and with Turkish, they all proffered submission, and repeating the necessary formula, embraced the Mohammedan faith. Relying upon this external conversion, I spared their lives and property, and gave orders that no one should interfere with their lives, belongings, or estates. I then clothed some of them in dresses of honour and dismissed them.

 

At this court Amir Jahan Shah, Amir Sulaiman Shah, and other amirs of experience informed me that, from the time of entering Hindustan up to the present we had taken more than one hundred thousand infidels and Hindus prisoners, and that they were all in my camp. On the previous day, when the enemy’s forces attacked us, the prisoners made signs of rejoicing, uttered imprecations against us, and were ready, as soon as they heard of the enemy’s success, to form themselves into a body, break their bonds, plunder our tents, and then to join the enemy, and so increase his numbers and strength. I asked the amirs for advice about the prisoners, and they said that on the day of battle these one hundred thousand prisoners could not be left with the baggage, and that it would be entirely opposed to the rules of war to set these idolaters and foes of Islam at liberty, so that no course remained but to make them all food for the sword.

Page 203

When I heard these words, I found them to be in accordance with the rules of war, and I immediately directed the commanders to proclaim throughout the camp that every man who had infidel prisoners was to put them to death, and that whoever neglected to do so, should himself be executed and his property given to the informer. When this order became known to the champions of Islam, they drew their swords and put their prisoners to death. One hundred thousand infidels, impious idolaters, were slain on that day. Maulana Nasir-ad-din Omar, a counsellor and man of learning, who had never killed a sparrow in all his life, now, in execution of my order, killed fifteen idolatrous Hindus, who were his captives.

 

After spending fifteen days at Delhi, passing my time in pleasure and enjoyment, and in holding royal courts and giving great feasts, I reflected that I had come to Hindustan to war against infidels, and that my enterprise had been so blessed that wherever I had gone I had been victorious. I had triumphed over my adversaries, I had put to death hundreds of thousands of infidels and idolaters, I had dyed my proselyting sword with the blood of the enemies of the Faith, and now that I had gained this crowning victory, I felt that I ought not to indulge in ease, but rather to exert myself still further in warring against the infidels of Hindustan. Having made these reflections, on the twenty-second of Rabi’-al-akhir, 800 A.H. (Jan. 1, 1399 A.D.), I again drew my sword to wage a religious war.

It is indian philosophy that nothing happens without karma. So why cry and wail like a hindu nationalist ? they must have done something horrible to deserve such a fate

Well guru ji himself says that Waheguru sent the mughal as the messenger of death. 

I think the sakhi is that the town that guru ji mentions in babur bani, bhai mardana and some of guru jis other disciples were insulted in that town by the residents 

And I'm not crying and lamenting LMAO 

But it's important that we don't forget this as it is part of our ithiaas. Our religion was born out of the oppression and torture of these people.  

Perhaps that's why they were sent to India

I dont know where to find the rest either. Bit one important thing I learned is that oppression of nonmuslims and their death is promoted in islam and has been part of their faith for centuries.

It's still happening to this day.  Look at the state of yazidis in Iraq, the Christians in the middle East, the Hindus in Pakistan. The attack on Christians in shri lanka.

These people have been doing it for over a 1000 years. 

This is the exact same thing the mughals and Afghans did to the sikhs.

That's why it important to know our ithiaas because it's still happening.

Because of our history Indians should be more aware of islamic destruction. 

According to Islamic hadiths the prophet died because he was poisened by a Jewish women. She poisened him as revenge because he killed her tribe and family.

They have been doing his since the beginning

    • Can UK Sikh community sue the BBC?  Why they use term Sikh In such cases even U.K. does not identify Sikhs as different race identity. 
    • Singh ji, all posts with hyperlinks gets automated in the queue of need of moderation approvals. (Including YouTube links).
    • The way I see it is that it depends on the spiritual stage of the couple. Remember we are not robots programmed to act in a such manner. There is no program/software put in us to behave only in such particular way.   Giving example based on original topic here. One couple who are amritdhari but their spiritual jeevani is at - let say beginner level.  They believe issues like eating outside or sexting between them is ok. This is because their inner mind (spiritual level) does not make them think that it is wrong ‘yet’.  Now another couple who are practicing Sikhi at high spiritual level and their mind says to refrain eating outside and indulge in any sexting etc etc at all cost. That is their gurmat oriented Khalsa lifestyle.   They both are Sikh couple at different spiritual stage. There is no quick fix to make the young couple think otherwise, unless they advance to the higher spirituality with help of sangat and their own self-discipline.    Now you will also see folks following rules to refrain from certain things such as above 2 issues.. but the only negative part is that they are doing it without their inner spiritual awakening. Now, it is always good to have rules for newbie to follow but it is a temporary roadmap bridge to get on high ground of spirituality. We have lot of those folks who are stuck at that ‘suppose to be temporary bridge’ and not moving forward. To them rules are rules but to understand behind those rules, they will only understand the real meaning when they have their own spiritual awakening. Until then we will see negative  cases like divorces, them being victims of Panj vikars etc etc.
    • Same as today any writer can write about general majority of Sikhs being non-turbaned, drinking or some smoking. 100 years later we cannot simply believe that they were the actual Sikh. Just like in past there were actual Sikhs who followed guru path and some who were on and off that path with their weakness. Maharaja Ranjit is the perfect example of a Sikh who was not a Sikh in our guru eyes with his lifestyle.
