    You can refute the above with any source you wish.

    The Arabs were a flop as far as India is concerned and even the Caliph gave up hope for conquering India..it was the Turks who were sucessfull in conquering a significant part of India.

    It is totally silly people fighting for their religion here...

    the only constant in this universe is change.. everything good and beautiful is meant to end. PERIOD !!

    So, be it hinduism or islam everything is gonna end. OFC !! The one entity which is open to change has higher probability to last longer.

    Some religion claiming to complete and comprehensive sounds utter BS. Such cr@p logic only breeds nut-jobs who professes world was way better 1000 year ago and term anything which they don't like as har@m at the drop of a hat with some twisted logic..

    apart from bharatvarsha ,the words actually used by ancient texts to refer to india as a whole is aryabarta,uttarapatha[north india] and dakshinapatha[south india].

    Again decisive difference between arabs and turko mongols were the presence of massed skilled horse archers,a decisive military advantage before gunpowder.

    I see it in a different way,i believe that people who live in worse natural conditions always have a rough lifestyle and thus want to fight and conquer and have a good life but Indians a civilization much ahead of the Arabs were chilling out as their fighting times were long over and now are just ersting easy.

    So,it was a perfect deal and u r wrong,they did not cross any peninsula.

    They came across the persian gulf and entered sindh.

    There are many other stories as well about the infighting,the issues in Sindh,Raja Dahir's issues and so on.

    Nonetheless They got beaten again in the Battle of Rajasthan mentioned here.

    How is your post relevant when we have what u want?

    We have the valley and all your rivers,so once u sort that out,we can decide what to call ourselves?

    The important events here are Bin Qasim's victory and then the defeat in battle of Rajasthan.

    Then comes the mahmud Ghazni in the 11th Century and his victories by which he came up until the western banks of the Indus and that is followed by Ghori doing his raids from Samarkand onto finally defeating Prithviraj Chauhan in 1206.

    So,we can say that the real period of domination or the muslim rule is from 1206-aurangazeb's death in 1707.

    That marks 500 years.

    Most of what you claim today is due to the Ottomans alone.

    Even today the most dominant countries of the world and non muslim,

    whether it is The christian countries of the world or Russia/China/India/Brazil or whatever.

    Turkey/Saudi Arabia/Iran/Indonesia fill up.

    You lost India,Yugoslavia,Greece.

    What matters is who finish first in the end,

    some percentage is no good.

    lol..what are you talking about? "Who finishes first"? Where is the "finishing line"? Child.

    What are you talking about? :rolleyes:

    Ottoman Empire was one of the many great Islamic Empires..You take the name of Ottoman because you are not well read, and since Ottoman was the first "modern" super power, you only utter its name.

    Today's "dominant" countries are all secular Western countries (with china rising)...India/Brazil are a joke. They don't stand anywhere as of now.

    Turks are more "dominant" than indians/brazilians combined even today (This word dominant is a wrong word to use though)...

    United States never invaded/conquered these lands.

    Hardly,thats just a figment of your imagination.

    Their power comes from being in a oil/gas resource rich area and thus they become more significant in geopolitics.

    I am talking about the Ottoman's because they survived till the first world war,the longest of all monarchies.

    They truly deserve to be called the dominant power because they took the fight to Europe and even dominated Yugoslavia,Greece and took Constantinople from the Romans and they are here even today.

    This reminds me of how Pakistanis claim,how they once ruled Spain and the Arabs mocking them saying,when did u ever do so?

    India and Brazil are here to stay for good and they are the new age powers and once this hoopla of oil/gas story ends we ll just have the number game to play and we ll see how it goes.

    Turkey is nothing in front of India/Brazil.

    They are begging for an EU spot for a longtime and still are not in.

    They don't want to be with u,history leeches.For them u r just a brownie,not Turkic and hell not even Kurd.

    US never conquered those lands but the Ottomans lost all that land,

    and no prizes for guessing who lost India.

    Your claim of the biggest kabzaa of all time just didn't happen.
