How shameful and apologetic it is that after living for many centuries with Muslims we are still practically unaware of their history? One of the reasons of Hindu-Muslim dislike for each other is also that us Hindus have absolutely no ideas about the great characters of Muslim history. Whenever there was a mention of a Muslim King our eyes saw only the image of Aurangzeb. But good and bad characters have been part of every society and will continue to do so. Muslim community have also produced many a great leader, asthetics, alm-givers and Hindus would do well to learn and know about them.
