Were Mongols Responsible for the Massacre of Muslims?

Maulana Wahiduddin Khan is an Islamic spiritual scholar who has adopted peace as the mission of his life. Known for his Gandhian views, he considers non-violence as the only method to achieve success. Internationally recognized for his contributions to world peace, he has received, among others, the Demiurgus Peace International Award, the Padma Bhushan, the Rajiv Gandhi National Sadbhavna Award and the National Citizen's Award. A recent book, The 500 Most Influential Muslims of 2009 by Georgetown University, Washington DC, has named him “Islam’s Spiritual Ambassador to the world.” His approach, the book points out, is “popular among Indians, both Muslim and non-Muslim.” Born in Azamgarh (U.P.) in 1925, the Maulana was educated in a traditional seminary. From his early years, he showed a voracious appetite for modern knowledge, spending entire days in the library. As a result he became well versed in both classical Islamic learning and modern disciplines. His extensive research led him to conclude that the need of the hour was to present Islamic teachings in the style and language of the post-scientific era.

Muslim historian Ibne-Aseer in his history [and Ahmed Hafiz in Kitabud Daula Al Khwarzimi Wal-Maghol and Muqraiazi in his Kitabul Saulook-ul-Marifa Daulul Malook have seconded Ibn-e-Aseer] had written a detailed account as to how Genghis Khan and his Mongol Army thoroughly sacked, thrashed, and butchered the so-called Muslim Ummah in 13th Century and that is not the end the mongol army invaded the Muslim Kindom of Samarkand and Bukhara which were overwhelmingly 'Muslim' having Muslim King with powerful army and finished the Kingdom of Khwarzam Shah. Genghis Khan was instigated by Khwarzam's arrogance and his violation of oath which he himself signed with Tartar King Genghis Khan. Khwarzam's governor had murdered the Mongol traders who used to trade with Central Asian Muslim State as per the Trade Treaty signed by Genghis and Khwarzam. There was another reason as well of Mongol Attacks on Muslim states and that was the ambitions of Khwarzam Shah to be a King of Baghdad as well and be called Commander of the Faithful. On hearing the ambitions of Khwarzam the Baghdad Caliph Sultan Nasiruddinullah started secret correspondence with Genghis Khan and instigated him to attack the state of Allauddin Shah Khwarzam and the rest is history.

Between 640 – 655 Hijri Abdullah Bin Mustansir aka Mostasim Billa {Abbassaid Caliph} was the powerless ruler of Baghdad, he was also Faqih and Mohaddis {Sunni Religious Scholar} but extremely superstitious sometimes he was even afraid of ‘cats’ his Prime Minister was Moiduddin Ibn-e-Alqami Rafzi {Extremist Shia} and due to his incompetence there was Sectarian War going on in Baghdad amongst Shias and Sunnis and Hanbalites and other sects of Muslims. Shias were majority in an area called Karkh in West Baghdad and Ibn-e-Alqami used to live there. Day in day out Shia-Sunni used to fight each other in that particular neighborhood. The Caliph Mostasim sent his two sons Abu Bakar and Rukunuddin Dawadar to crush the Shia rebellion and ordered them to loot Shia houses in Karkh, which they did successfully, Mostasim’s haste step angered Ibn-e-Alqami but he preferred patience. Ibn-e-Alqami strategically and very cunningly started sending the army troops from Capital Baghdad to all over the place on the context of confronting the invading Hordes of Mongols. Around 653 Hijri Halaku Khan attacked Iraq besides conquering Isphahan, Hamdan and several Forts of Ismailis including Qila Al Amut of Hassan Bin Sabbah (Ismaili Shia) aka the Assassins or Hasheeshain. On his way to Baghdad Halaku received letters from Ibn-e-Alqami, he was encouraging Halaku Khan to annex Baghdad. Earlier Halaku was reluctant and afraid to annex Baghdad because it being a Centre of so-called Muslim Ummah but was pursued by one Khwaja Naseeruddin Toosi {another Shia} to go ahead and don’t worry about Ummah. {Tareekh Ibn-e-Khaldun {Volume 3 & 4 Khilafat-e-Banu Abbas}

Therefore when he reached Baghdad the Prime Minister Ibn-e-Alqami approached Halaku in the Military Camp of Mongols outside Baghdad and requested peace from Halaku for himself and returned back to Caliph Mostasim Billa and said lets go to Halaku as I {Alqami} have granted peace and government of Baghdad for you. Mostasim Billa with his Ministers, Advisers, Clerics and Qazis visited Halaku. Halaku Khan instantly put all of them to sword and very ruthlessly too, later Halaku ordered that the Caliph be covered in a carpet and the be attached to the feet of an elephant so that Mostasim be thoroughly dead and annihilated. Afterwards Ibn-e-Alqami desecrated the dead body of Mostasim saying that he got his revenge and the revenge of the blood of the followers and descendents [Ahlul Bait] of Holy Prophet Mohammad {PBUH}. Halaku and his army for 6 months after that looting, killing, burning, raping and pillaging Baghdad and in total more than 1 Million people were put to sword. That is not the end when Ibn-e-Alqami was getting out of his boots he too was put to death by the Mongol Army. {Tareekh Ibn-e-Khaldun {Volume 3 & 4 Khilafat-e-Banu Abbas}
