The history of the Hindu Kush mountains, the Islamic conquest of India and Muslim barbarity

The Hindu Kush mountains are a 1000 mile-long mountain system that divides the Amu Dariya and the Indus Valleys. It is primarily located in Pakistan and Afghanistan but also extends into Uzbekistan, China and Iran.

Today it is the home of the terrorist group Al Qaeda and has become one of the most dangerous places in the world…

..The Arabs started raiding Hindu Kush in 642 A.D. Muslim armies would attack at night, behead men, rape women and enslave children…

That sounds familiar, unfortunately.

  • The Kalash who live in the Hindu Kush have been forced to embrace Islam but most have not.

      There was a time when there was no Islam at all in the area. Think how much more peaceful things would be without that poisonous crap.

      • Indeed.

        The Kalash are another culture that will be expunged because of the religion of peace.

      The original inhabitants of this region (areas around River Oxus & Hindu Kush range till Badakshan & Kafiristan (modern day Nooristan)) were ‘Kambojas’, with 2 distinct branches ‘Safed Posh’ the elders & the ‘Siah Posh’ the ordinary ones. In Avestan language (related to ancient Sanskrit) ‘Kamboj’ means horsemen or Cavalry soldier. They worshiped Sun & Fire (some scholars believe they were Zoroastrians), Herodotus has described them as decedents of King Cambyses II of Achaemenid Dynasty. According to Ptolemy’s geography the region was settled by kambojas who were also known as ‘asvakas’ meaning people with horses.

      In ancient Indian history & scriptures people, i.e. kambojas, from ‘uttrapatha’ region, has been widely described as the best cavalry soldiers. “Uttrapatha’ in ancient Sanskrit refers to modern day HinduKush. According to some modern scholars they were the first to domesticate horse & use them in battle. Their women ride & fought along side the men in the war.
      History tells that these people fought Alexander, who was skeptical of going into war with them because of their cavalry however he was able to defeat some local ‘kamboja’ tribes, namely Aspasioi and Assakenoi and cross into Indus valley.

      During & after 7 BCE Kambojas fought Arabs/muslim invaders but gradually lost ground, some fringed tribes under the threat of sword converted to islam however, majority migrated south & east towards India where they founded the kingdom of Rajapura (modern day Rajouri), continuing further south to Ceylon they eventually founded the another kingdom in modern day Cambodia.

      Only few thousand of the original “Siah Posh’ kambojas are believed to have survived in ‘Kalash’ region. They still worship sun & some other deities. There’s increasing pressure both from their mohammedan neighbours & government to convert them to islam. They are forbidden to speak their language or wear their traditional costume outside the Kalash region in the valley of Nooristan.
      A first hand account on the lives of ‘Kambjoas’ of HinduKush/Badakashan region is given by George Scott Robertson in his excellent book ‘The kaffirs of The Hindu-Kush’, who twice travelled to the region in 1880’s & 90’s. There’s a detailed description how mohammedans from neighbouring valleys use to raid their villages to enslave men & women who were later sold in the markets of Kabul, Jalalabad, Kandahar and as far as Turkey, Syria & Mesopotamia. These people, where untainted are known to have fair skin, blue eyes & blonde hairs hence prized by mohammedan savages.

      ‘The Man Who Would Be King’ by Rudyard Kipling was also set on the same region & it’s inhabitants (Non-mohammedans).
