Study Of History - Its Objective
The primary object of studying history is to learn from past mistakes; it is to expose fraud and tyranny that cost the nation dearly; it is to chalk out a better future for all mankind. It is in that spirit that the accounts of early Muslim invaders and later Muslim autocrats, are presented in this volume, directly from narrations made by Muslim chroniclers themselves.
Even students of history are not often conscious of the mushrooming ramifications of Muslim rule in India. There were nawabs and sultans of the Bahamani kingdom and later of its five splinter regimes; there were Muslim rulers of Arcot, Janjira, Madurai, Hyderabad, Khandesh, Malwa, Gujerat, Bengal, Oudh, Tonk, Mysore, Jaunpur, Malerkotla, Bhopal, Chattarpur, Rampur etc. etc. That is a staggering list! A whole series of special volumes dealing with the scalding and scorching regimes of everyone of those Muslim principalities needs to be brought out in a special series.
In addition, volumes of select accounts of Muslim frauds and treachery also need to be compiled for handy reference. For instance, there have been cases where Muslim marauders seeking shelter in Hindu forts through pathetic appeals, later slaughtered Hindu garrisons at the dead of night and captured the forts. There have been instances of Muslim rulers inviting Hindu sovereigns for parleys and then slaughtering them in cold blood by killers hidden behind the curtains. India's historians patronized by the ruling Congress party have been suppressing many important aspects of our history, aspects that should be brought to the attention of the general public and not covered up.
A comprehensive, honest and truthful account of the causes and consequences of India's long subjugation by aliens needs to be planned, executed and brought out by a panel of competent historians working under the centralized direction of brave and patriotic guides. The present volume may be considered a small beginning of that gigantic academic endeavor of re-piecing and re- constructing the history of Christian and Muslim in-roads into the land of ancient, universal Vedic brotherhood.
