Format: Paperback
I am listing a few comments from readers ( [...] ):

1. Prof. Sami Alrabaa (Germany), author of 'Karin in Saudi Arabia':

"I read your book and found it fascinating. It is one of those few books which everybody, Muslims and non-Muslims, must read. It is objective and balanced. For example, when you discuss how moderates interpret Jihad and how radical/militant Muslims interpret it.

"Islamic Jihad" is a comprehensive reference which entails in detail lots of facts about Islam and its prophet, in historical and current times. It is very well documented. All that makes it a must read to all of those who want to understand the driving force behind Jihad and terror."

2. Dr. Mervyn Brendle, James Cook University (Australia):

"I have read some sections and... look forward to reading it in some detail. It appears to be a substantial addition to the vital work underway in expanding our understanding of the history, nature, and danger of the global jihadi movement."

3. Ibn Warraq, author of 'Why I Am Not a Muslim':

"This book, I believe, will be a very important contribution for making a thorough understanding of the rising challenges both Muslim and non-Muslim world faces from Islamic extremists."

4. Nonie Darwish, author of 'Now They Call Me Infidel':

"This is a must read book, very important and eloquently written, that sheds light on the violent imperialist nature of jihad: a main doctrine in Islam that can only be accomplished at the expense of violating human rights of non-Muslims as well as Muslims."

I've read a number of books on Islam, its history and the challenges it confronts to freedom and civilization. Khan's excellent, richly detailed account is one of the best. He artfully, carefully demolishes so many apologist myths it's as if one's left with a clear vision of this horrific warlord and his legacy of ruin for the first time. Just the histories of Islam's predations in India and the true scope of Islamic slavery are worth reading this as soon as possible. But there's so much more. Impeccably sourced. Thank you, Mr. Khan!

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
ALL INDIAN PEOPLE SHOULD READ THIS BOOK. M.A. Khan has done a great service not only to India, but to the free world in writing this amazing work. He directly and clearly exposes history of jihad and how it is rooted in Islam itself, the devastating effects of jihad around the world (especially in India), and gives a detailed background of the cost of Islam to art, civilization, academic thought, religious freedom, and humanity as a whole.

It is likely that even educated Indian people who grew up in India don't know the horrors that their ancestors suffered because of Islam. M.A. Khan, through his book, will open the eyes of those very people and expose the lies that the media, apologists, and politically correct elite have forced upon them.

This is a must read. Buy it now and if you have Indian Friends please make them read this eye-opening book.

5 of 6 people found the following review helpful By S. H. Davis on April 23, 2013
Format: Paperback
Very good as either reference material or an eye-opener to those not already "islam-litterate". Should be required for those in the mainstream media reporting on anything involving islam, as typically they have no clue.

M. A. Kahn knows the culture and history, as he grew up in it, then got a taste of life outside the islamic world, and thus the freedom and opportunity tht is not present in the islamic world. I'ts also clear that English is not his 1st language, hence my observation that it is not well written. He also presents with a sledgehammer approach - example after example.

And the information is good enough to overlook those shortcomings. I recommend it.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Generally very good. Lots of specifics, especially in the front where all the evil in the name of Allah is traced back directly to Mohammad. His rage at being persecuted (i.e. they ignored him) led to his wars and assasinations on everyone who disagreed with him on anything. Followed by hundreds of years of unprovoked invasions, slaughter, mass slavery and todays's massive coverups of said mass murder and slavery. However the writing style should have been edited by someone else. Every other page has syntax or grammar errors, or left out words. Most places you just glide on through, automatically filling in missing words or putting words in the right order in a sentence in your mind as you read. But once in a while you have to read a sentence two or three times to really get it. I also wonder which translation of the Bible he read to get the interpretation of Matthew 18:25. "For example, Jesus advised people in debt to sell themselves along with their family menbers into slavery to pay up."

M.A. Khan takes a very objective and well researched look at the Koranic origins and the historical application of it’s teaching on Jihad. Many "moderate" Muslims would like us to believe that the concept of JIHAD or "holy war" has been "misinterpreted" and hijacked by some "radicals" and in fact it means an internal spiritual struggle agains the ego. But in fact throughout history Jihad has been interpreted by the majority of Islamic scholars to mean a war of conquest, conversion and looting perpetrated against non-believers. His detailed history of the Islamic conquest and destruction of India with all its attendant atrocities that continue for one thousand years is testimony to this orhtodox view.
