Nobody's Opinion

Nobody Remembers Akbar the Great

Nobody Remembers

The more I read and research Islam, the more, as a Westerner, I find it abhorrent. And one of the MOST abhorrent things about the Islamic religion is the fact that it has no tolerance against anybody or any religion that does not worship Allah.

Our Congressmen and the Western Leaders of the world are destroying our very fabric of everything that democracy holds dear by infiltrating our lands with them.

The Muslims of today, have no intention of becoming Westernized or accepting our ways.

But..guess what? A long time ago there was a Muslim ruler named Akbar, who conquered India, and even conquered as far as Afghanistan.

And Akbar, was tolerant of ALL religions in his empire:

Beyond military conciliation, he appealed to the Rajput people by ruling in a spirit of cooperation and tolerance. He did not force India’s majority Hindu population to convert to Islam; he accommodated them instead, abolishing the poll tax on non-Muslims, translating Hindu literature and participating in Hindu festivals.

Akbar was religiously curious. He regularly participated in the festivals of other faiths, and in 1575 in Fatehpur Sikri—a walled city that Akbar had designed in the Persian style—he built a temple (ibadat-khana) where he frequently hosted scholars from other religions, including Hindus, Zoroastrians, Christians, yogis, and Muslims of other sects. He allowed the Jesuits to construct a church at Agra, and discouraged the slaughter of cattle out of respect for Hindu custom. Not everyone appreciated these forays into multiculturalism, however, and many called him a heretic.

Akbar died in 1605, his rule lasted over 50 years.

So, could there be a Muslim leader like Akbar, who could follow in this wise Muslim’s footsteps and bring about peace in the Middle East?

Uh…probably not.

But it is nice to know that once upon a time the phrase “Allah Akbar” had a different meaning, than today.

Once upon a time there was a Muslim ruler who had brains—

Who knew?

Something tells me, the current Muslim Mayor of London, is NOT a descendant.

Too bad.
