History tells us, when Christians where prosecuted
in middle east some of them migrated to India. When
Parsies were prosecuted in Persia they migrated to
India. We all know, now there are only small number
of Christians in middle east and Parsies in Iran.

If Babur destroyed so many temples and lakhs & lakhs
of infidels (vedic hindus) were sent to hell we should
expect large scale migration of vedic hindus from the
region conquered/ruled by Babur, is there any historic
evidence of this?  How come there are still whole lot
of vedic hindus living in region ruled by Babur? We all
know that lots of them lived in what is now Pakistan
till the time of partisian, how can that be explained?

If the vedic hindus did not migrate when the Mughals
destroyed many of their temples and send lakhs of them
to hell or when British ruled them, why are they migrating
in large numbers from contemporary Independent India?

We should understand that the invasion of Mughals
and destruction of the temples were in themselves
a historic balancing act, it lead to the *downfall*
of social caste system in India. It is interesting
to note that till the caste system prevailed, vedic
hindus did not migrate from India.... This is
historic reality!
