Quran 9.29 “Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day…”
Islamic scholars would often cite Christianity when the question of their crimes against humanity is raised. Their method of apologist behaviour is “The Christians have killed more people than we did so we are yet to reach their level”. But on checking the factual data, their killings were and are as bad as Christians if not worse. While a lot of Muslim apologists would justify the aggression of Muhammad and the Ottoman Empire as defensive jihad, an unbiased analytical view of history proves otherwise. Let us do a brief check and a journey back in time in the context of Islamic genocides and see the effects Islam has on genocides in the present world.
South Asia (1000 - 1400 AD) - The entire Hindu population in Afghanistan was massacred in the Hindu Kush region in the year 1000 AD. Timor killed more than 1,000,000 Hindus in western parts of India and on one occasion 100,000 Hindus in a single day. The Bahamani sultans made it an objective to kill 100,000 Hindus a year, effectively reducing the Hindu population in India by several millions.
Greece (1821 - 1822 AD) - The Ottomans under the order of the then Khalifa massacred at least 50,000 Christians including women and children in the Thessaly, Macedonia and the Aegean islands. On Easter Day 1822, the Orthodox Patriarch in Constantinople was hanged by the Ottomans, and his body was later was thrown into the Bosphorus, eventually recovered by a Greek boat and brought to Odessa, where the Patriarch was given a martyr’s burial. The Muslim ulema under the direction of the Khalifa gave orders that ‘the rebels be openly fought and put to the sword, that their property be plundered and their wives and children reduced to slavery’. The Greek Christian captives, mostly women and children were sold as slaves in the markets of Egypt and other Arabian countries to be exploited as sex workers and domestic help.

Turkey (1915 to 1922 AD)-1,500000 Armenian Christians and at least 250,000 Greek Christians and Assyrians were killed by the Ittihat ve Terakki government (popularly known as Ottoman Turk government). The methods of killing used were labour camps where the Armenians were starved and overworked to death; concentration camps in the desert between Jerablus and Deir ez-Zor where the Assyrians would starve and thirst to death in the burning sun. Women were either sold in slave markets as sex slaves or crucified to feath if they revolted. The methods varied and the perpetrators took great pleasure is inflicting maximum suffering in their method of killings and torture.
The Balkan Countries (1870s) - Between April and August 1876 thousands of Bulgarian Christians were horrifically massacred by Khilafah forces - 12,000 men, women and children were butchered in May alone for revolting against the heavy taxes which forced them to starvation. Midhat Pasha, a liberal minister under the Ottoman Khalifa Abdul Hamid I, was killed because he made reforms for the better treatment of Christians. More than 250000 Christians converted to Islam to escape death and girls were dressed as boys to prevent rape by the Khalifa’s forces.
These are only a few of the horrors the Islamists have unleashed in this world and it continues till date with oppression and genocides of Hindus in Bangladesh and Pakistan, ethnic cleansing and massacres in Timor, Saudan, Algeria, Nigeria and Somalia and Jehadi terrorism all over the world. If the Khalifa forces had the powers the Christian aggressors had during the period of Crusades, civilisation would have been annihilated from the face of this earth. The swords on the bottom of the flag of Saudi Arabia, the Vatican of Sunni Muslims gives a clue of the true nature of Islam.
