go to hampi, folks. you will never again look at 'secularism' the same way again. vijayanagar had mohammedans in the army. they turned coat at a critical time in the battle of talikota and went over to the side of the bahmini sultans, their fellow-mohammedans. in fact, they killed the aged king of vijayanagar (90 years old) who was riding an elephant, beheaded him, and hoisted his head up on a spear. this caused the vijayanagar army to panic and be routed.
vijayanagar was burned to the ground for six months. yes, continuously for six months.
it was the richest and largest city in the world at its peak. there were seven huge bazaars, like giant shopping malls, where they sold gemstones by the handful! and one of the bazaars was the courtesan's bazaar!
and to reduce all this to ashes the mohammedans burned it for six months!
