Back in early 1300's when Hinduism in #Kashmir was as stupid as today's Indian Hindutva . A good amount of Hindus thought of saying good bye to Casteist religion. Even a Buddhist Prince named Rinchan saw the light and become the first Muslim King of #Kashmir .
No Invasion dude
& Yes there was an invasion, there was one by Mongol Chieftain Dulcha, he belonged to Chagatay Clan & was non Muslim. The Suhadeva the king of Kashmir gave no resistance & left the #Kashmir leaving the people at his mercy.The invasion ended the rule of last Hindu King in Kashmir
This what Jonaraja, a Kashmiri historian, a pandit and sanskrit poet has to say about Last Hindu King of #Kashmir
When Dulcha retreated (many historians believe he & his army perished in snow storm near Devsar pass), #Kashmir came under control of exiled Buddhist prince Rinchana , while he thought it is hard to rule Hindu subjects, he went to Devaswami to become Hindu.
Devaswami - Head of Shaivas refused to accept him as a Brahmin. and this is how Jonaraja described the event and aftermath.
Now blaming the downfall of Hinduism in #Kashmir on Islam is as good a lie as India is a secular nation.
