Babur kee aulad or the offspring of BaburThe hero for Muslim of India, Pakistan and Bangladesh, Zahiruddin Muhammad Babar (AD. 1483-1530), the founder of the Mogul Empire of India, occupies a uniquely important place for the Muslims. He has left us his Memoir ‘Babarnama’ containing a first hand account of his life and experiences. He left his ancestral kingdom is in Central Asia, to found an empire in Hindustan. Indian students for several generations have been fed the story that Babar was a highly cultured and charming prince who went on to found an empire that epitomized secularism and tolerance. For instance, Pandit Nehru, whose grand father was a muslim, had written that Babar was one of the most cultured and delightful persons one could meet. There was no sectarianism in him, no religious bigotry, and he did not destroy as his ancestors used to. One Akhilesh Mithal, a modern day admirer of Babar always writes in praise of Babur. The tragedy of India today is that people today do not have time to read history and judge characters like Babur for themselves. Instead of enjoying his many splendoured being and the achievements of his 47 years life people are misled into the belief that he was a great warrior. Muslims and congressmen praise Babar. But from Babar’s writings in Babarnama, exposes him as the butcher of India. The Babarnama is a voluminous work. A third of it is concerned with India, containing detailed descriptions of the land, its flora, fauna and his experiences. But the parts that are of particular interest are those that shed light on Babar's personality and character. The picture of Babar that we get from his Memoir is that he was cruel and bigoted even by the standards of a medieval barbaric Turk. He thought nothing of massacring even those who had surrendered to him — hardly the mark of a chivalrous soldier. He writes of some Afghan prisoners: Those who were brought in alive [having surrendered] were ordered beheaded, after which a tower of skulls was erected in the camp.(p 188). Those were unarmed men who had already surrendered to him! Babar's Memoir, the Babarnama have to say about the Babri Masjid? Unfortunately nothing, for the work as it exists today is incomplete. It has a gap of about five-and-half months — from April to September of 1528 — precisely the period during which the temple was demolished and the mosque built. Babar tells us that he had reached Awadh in March, and on 28 March, we find him camped a few miles downstream of the town,reconnoitering the area for suitable hunting grounds. Then on April 2, the Memoir breaks off abruptly and picks up again on September 18, 1528. But, as previously detailed, we know from other sources that the Ram Temple was destroyed and the mosque builtduring Babar's stay in Oudh. This point is important to note: the part of the Memoir describing Babar's stay at Ayodhya is missing from all extant copies of the Baburnama. Thus, the claim made by some Secularist historians that the Baburnama does not record the destruction of the Ramjanmabhumi Temple is entirely fraudulent, as it is based on a non-existent source but other archaeological evidence confirms the temple destruction.The great Guru Nanak, a contemporary and an eyewitness to Babur's invasion gives a vivid account of Babur's vandalism in Aimanabad. The great Guru Nanak calls him a butcher. Babar speak himself about his tolerance of other religions, especially Hinduism. Here is what Babar is saying: Chanderi had been in the daru'l-harb [Hindu rule] for some years and held by Sanga's highest-ranking officer Meidini Rao, with four or five thousand infidels, but in 934 [1527-28], through the grace of God, I took it by force within a ghari or two, massacred the infidels, and brought it into the bosom of Islam ... (p 331; emphasis added.) . And what did he find interesting in India? "Hindustan," he wrote, "is a place of little charm. ... The one nice aspect of Hindustan is it is a large country with lots of gold and money." All told, a reading of the Baburnama we come across a bigoted and cruel, animal. He speaks so often, and with obvious glee of having made 'a tower of skulls', that one soon begins to sicken at the expression. It is not hard to see why Babur ki aulad is considered the worst form of abuse in North India. Babar used terror as a useful tactical tool. In this he was a true descendant of Timur and Chengiz Khan — both of whom were his ancestors. Babar was fully capable of destroying temples. Nanak was eyewitness to much such destruction: temples as strong as thunderbolt were set on fire, said Nanak. "Than mukam jale bij mandar muchhi muchhi kuir rula'ia" — in Nanak's own words. Babar’s destruction of the temple at Ayodhya was no isolated case, but just routine, all part of a day's work as a Ghazi, a muslim religious warrior. Babar considered it his sacred duty to destroy the temples. Babar pushed the practice of Jihad to its limit and prided himself as a butcher of Hindus. Some extracts on Babar’s genocide of Hindus during moghal era by Zahiru'd-Din Muahmmed Babur(CE 1526-1530) from Babur Nama. The place is Chanderi in Madhya Pradesh. In AH 934 (CE 152 I attacked Chanderi and by the grace of Allah captured it in a few hours...We got the infidels slaughtered and the place which had been daru'l - harb for years was made into a daru'l-islam. Babur's poem on killing HindusFor the sake of Islam I became a wanderer;I battled infidels and Hindus.I determined to become a martyr.Thank God I became a Ghazi (killer of non-Muslims)Since the establishment of Zahiru'd-Din Ghazi's rule ...officers and religious leaders spread Islam vigorously destroying Hindu faith. We cleared of the filth of Hinduism from Faizabad and Avadh.Guru Nanak on Babur's atrocities: Having attacked Khuraasaan, Babar terrified Hindustan. The Creator Himself does not take the blame, but has sent the Mugal as the messenger of death. There was so much slaughter that the people screamed. Didn't you feel compassion, Lord? pg (360) on the condition of Hindu women in Babur's monster rule: Those heads adorned with braided hair, with their parts painted with vermillion - those heads were shaved with scissors, and their throats were choked with dust. They lived in palatial mansions, but now, they cannot even sit near the palaces.... ropes were put around their necks, and their strings of pearls were broken. Their wealth and youthful beauty, which gave them so much pleasure, have now become their enemies. The order was given to the soldiers, who dishonored them, and carried them away. If it is pleasing to God's Will, He bestows greatness; if is pleases His Will, He bestows punishment pg (417-1)Babar is seen as a horror and the expression Babur kee aulad (offspring of Babur) ismeant to be the worst form of abuse which can be heaped upon a Muslim.Posted by cricketfan8 on Mar 26, 2005babur was from ferghana valley - uzbekistan. i met one foreign student from uzbekistan. he was very familiar with babur's work and his memoirs baburamah. baburnamah is widely read teaxt in uzbekistan. babur is revered as the conqueror of india in uzbekistan. in fact i have met sveral turks and they also very familiar with babur as babur was part turk. babur is called baburshah - he was a turkish - mongol. the main reaso he beat out the lodhis and rajputs was that he had cannons-gunpowder. cannons against elephants. there is no comparision. elephants run backwards when they hear the boom of a cannon. baburs cannon won him hindustan.before babur came attacking hindustan with cannons no one had even heard of them. today baburs remains lie in kabul - his favourite city.
