Delhi Sultanate India

  1. It is the End Times for the Dindoo Hinoo ! Nanak met Babar and blessed him ! He did not warn Babar not to pillage the Hindoos !

    The Hindoos got what they deserved – and even Nanak did not try to stop or caution Babar ! dindooohindoo

    Y ?

    Nanak knew the worth of Hindoo evil !

    Net Result ! Babar pillaged the Hindoo Filth and was rewarded with a son – Akbar !

    Nanak asks his God – Did you feel no pity ? And the Lord did not give a damn !

    That same time beckons Pakistan – the pedigreed lineage of Babar ! dindooohindoo
    || 4 || 4 || 38 || AASAA, FIRST MEHL: Having attacked Khuraasaan, “Baabar terrified Hindustan”. The Creator Himself does not take the blame, but has sent the “Mugal as the messenger death”. There was so much slaughter that the people screamed. “Didn’t You feel compassion”, Lord?
    Y did the “tantric rites” of the Dindoo Hindoo Gandoo,”not save them” ?
    |q| 3 || Millions of religious leaders failed to halt the invader, when they heard of the Emperor?s invasion.He burned the rest-houses and ‘the ancient temples”; he “cut the princes limb from limb”, and cast them into the dust. None of the Mugals “went blind, and no one performed any miracle”.
    Y did Allah not save the “RajFooFoot”?
    || 5 || The Hindu women, the Muslim women, the Bhattis and the “Rajputs – some had their robes torn away, from head to foot”, while others came to dwell in the cremation ground. Their “husbands did not return home” and how did they pass their night ?
    || 6 || The Creator Himself acts, and “causes others to act”. Unto whom should we complain?
    The Sad Truth – The Lord did nothing – the “DindooHindoo scum got what they deserved” ! The same
    “would have been done” by “Abraham and Solomon and David”
     “Ghazni/Babar and the Mughals”, did nothing which Abraham, David and Solomon, did “not do or would not have done”
     They all followed the “Old Testament” !
