This comes out in exactly the way Owaisi said it in his speech and this is what makes this speech so important. At one point in his diatribe against India and Indians he said that those who said Muslims should go to another country did not realise that if they went they would take with them the Taj Mahal, the Red Fort and the Qutab Minar. “And, what will be left here then? A broken Ram temple in Ayodhya and some naked statues in Ajanta and Ellora.” Analyse this comment and you see what ordinary Muslims across the Indian sub-continent have long believed — that there was nothing worth preserving of India’s ancient civilisation. Until Islam arrived, they believe, India was a cultural and civilisational desert and if you try arguing that this is illiterate rubbish, as I often have done, then the conversation ends or the subject gets changed.
As far as my personal feelings are concerned,yes,I admired Taj right from my childhood and used to draw pictures of the same on empty paper.Qutub Minar is O.K,but I won't comment on the Red fort as I haven't seen it.Anyway some beautiful temples of Khajuraho with intricate designs on the outside that appeared on the Sunday edition of Eeenadu also fascinated me.So I do find some Hindu temples also beautiful sometimes perhaps if not on the outside then in their inner sanctorums with intricate carvings and designs.Anyone who says that Hindu temples are not beautiful must remember one point.Even the Muslim rulers admired the beauty of Hindu temples and sculptures before they razed them down with naptha in order to erase from the memories of local population,their erstwhile glory.
The temples of Khajuraho escaped Muslim fury as they were not in use anymore by the time of invasions and as thick forests had already enveloped them until the British came and discovered them.
When one muslim ruler invaded Mathura in North India,he calculated that such a huge temple would have taken 200 years to build.Naturally if it were left up until now,might be it too would have been an outstanding architectural and archaelogical marvel.He razed it down with naptha.
The Portuguese when they saw the city of Vijaya Nagar or Bijjnaggur as the muslims called it,they said that it is unmistakebly the most clean and beautiful of all the cities of the then known world.Now since Vijayanagar staunchly opposed muslim rule for more than 250 years,as soon as the city fell,it was completely defaced so that the local population cannot regroup once again based on their nostalgia.Muslim rulers boasted that within some 60 miles of radius or so of Vijaya Nagar,no living soul, man or animal was spared.
It seems we are seeing the fruits of those ravages when a mockery is made that Hindus did not build anything worth as much as Muslim monuments.
The God who punishes finite sins with infinite torment is someone who is totally devoid of compassion.Such a God is the most cruel one in all of the universe.
