The army strongly resisted the Sultan’s attacks for three days. And prevented the Sultan from entering the temple. Sultan Mahmood Ghaznavi probably did not expect such a strong defense. So when he saw no form of victory, he got off the horse. Syed Muhammad Latif writes that he prostrated to God in front of the army. Prayed for Allah’s help. And rode on the horse again, he held the hand of his general Abul Hassan and raised a slogan that a wave of enthusiasm in the whole army A run broke out and they broke into the fort. Five thousand Rajput soldiers were killed in this attack.
The children who escaped through the sea in boats. The historical city and temple of Somnath were open in front of Mahmood Ghaznavi. There is also another incident related to this in the history of Angel but it is written. That is that Mahmood Ghaznawi, the Sufi elder of Iran, Sultan Muhammad. Sheikh Abul Hassan Khurqani had prayed for victory by holding the shawl in his hands. He got victory in Somnath but on the same night it is said that Mahmood Ghaznavi saw Sheikh Abul Hassan in his dream. He said “O Mahmood, you have disgraced my shawl. If If you had prayed for all non-Muslims to bring Islam instead of victory, it would have been accepted.
However, when Sultan entered Somnath’s temple, a nine-foot-high masjama was installed in front of him. The Sultan broke his nose with a hit of a garz. Then he ordered that two pieces of the idol be sent to Ghazni. One to the Jama Masjid. The Brahmin priests of the temple offered a large amount of gold to the Sultan to protect this idol. Mahmood Ghaznavi said this famous phrase of his. That he wants to be called idol breaker not idol seller in history. So on his order the idol was broken.
When the idol was broken, a large amount of diamonds and jewels came out of it. Apart from Ghazni, a piece of this idol was also sent to Makkah and the other to Madina Munawara. More small and big idols of gold and silver were found in such a large number. That it has become difficult to accurately estimate their price. It has also been famous in history that Sultan Mahmood Ghaznavi uprooted Ghazni to the precious door of Somnath and took it to Ghazni. And these doors were installed in his grave. But really? This story is very fictional, very emotional. But is it true?
To examine it, you are told something not a thousand years old, but only two centuries old. In eighteen hundred and twenty-two, there was a debate in British Parliament known in history as the Proclamation of Gates. It says Indian author Romella Thapar to the British In order to gain Hindu sympathy, the doors of Somnath should be brought back from Mehmood Ghaznavi’s shrine and given to Hindus, because they believe Mehmood Ghanvi had violated Hindu rights eight hundred years ago.
But what happened was that when those doors were uprooted from Mahmood Ghaznavi’s shrine and brought to India, we realized that they were not actually the doors of the Somnath temple. Because the doors of Somnath were made of sandalwood while these doors were made of cedar wood found in Ghazni. They were made from. And they had something written in Arabic in Arabic scripts. This makes the details of the whole incident questionable whether the stories of the conquest and looting of the Somnath temple are presented as such. Did you come or is this too much of an exaggeration?
Indian researcher and author Romella Thapar writes that these stories are exaggerated. According to her, the attack was not as big as it is written in history books. She thinks this story was created by the British to discriminate between Indian Muslims and Hindus. Was spread to do. Sultan Mahmood Ghaznavi may not have done all that he is accused of in India. But questions about his personal character and his wars with Muslims have also been raised by Muslim historians themselves. Syed Muhammad Latif writes that Mahmood Ghaznavi used to drink alcohol.
Professor Azizuddin alleges that Mehmood Ghaznavi had prepared an army of non-Muslim soldiers from India to use them against Muslims. Mehmood Gaznavi also occupied the Muslim states of Sistan and Georgia. And so and he went to Baghdad to achieve Samarkand. This is the best way to go. I had also threatened the Abbasi Khalifa of Muslims. He said, “Now I have come to know that you people want me to trample the Caliphate with a thousand elephants and bring the debris of the Bargah Caliphate on these elephants to Ghazni.”
It is also known about Mahmood Ghaznavi that he had written a shahnama from the famous poet Firdowsi and promised to give him gold in exchange for each verse. But when the shahnama was written, instead of gold, he offered silver coins to Firdowsi. I. Firdowsi refused to take this compensation. Later Mahmood Ghaznavi sent gold coins for Firdowsi. But these coins arrived when Firdowsi’s funeral was going on. Despite all this, the fact is in place that Sultan Mahmood Ghaznavi sent a great The kingdom of glory was established.
His kingdom stretched from Iran to some Chinese areas and south to the Arabian Sea. Not only did the kingdom spread, but it also had heaps of treasures. But now these heaps of treasures were about to be separated from him. By the age of thirtieth, he suffered from a life-threatening disease. When he learned there was no chance he would survive, he began to grieve. He withdrew all the jewels, money and nobles from the royal treasury and piled it in the courtyard of the palace. Then he saw them and started roaring and crying. The next day he lined up his army for the show off, for inspection.
In which one hundred thousand foot army, fifty thousand horse riders and thirteen hundred elephants passed in front of him. Mahmood Ghaznavi leaned on his bed, watched it all and kept shedding tears. On the next day, April twenty one thousand thirty years old. Mahmood Ghaznavi passed away at Umar. This building in Afghan city Ghazni is a tomb and it is called Qasr Ferozi, its original doors do not exist anymore because you have known that they were uprooted by the British and brought to India and now it is in the fort of Agra Safe. In the same tomb Sultan Mahmood Ghaznavi is fond of. Was willing to do anything for him. So friends, this was the story of the Sultan who carried out 17 attacks on India.
