  1. This is a history written with a biased mind.Maulana writes that first jihad fought against apostates was actually a war against shiane Ali(a.s) which is totally wrong in the light of historical facts.Maulana also writes that first and second khilafat were full of injustice, where the fact is that this khilafat was matchless in the world history.Both khalifas never gain any worldly benefit from their rule , even they didnt give any post to their kith and kins.That is why Umar,s name was included in The hundred all time great men by a christian writer.
    Further Maulana writes that 72 of karbala were most dedicated persons that history ever seen.What about the 320 of jange badar for whome Rasool(SA) preyed to Allah that if all thease souls would die no one will remain for worship thy almighty till last day.
    History never bound with notion but notion always in need of authentic history.Jazak allah


  2. Jazzak Allah!!!
