DESTRUCTION OF THE THIRD TEMPLE

Me grim defiance with which Jayapala and
Anandapala faced Mahmud only reflected the mood of the country. "Mahmud", says Al-Biruni, "utterly ruined the prosperity of the country and performed there wonderful exploits by which Hindus became like atoms of dust scattered in all directions and like a tale of old in the mouth of the people. Their scattered remains cherish, of course, the most inveterate aversion towards allMuslims."8

From this time, Shiva the Destroyer, was the God of Resistance and in His name millions laid down their lives in defence of their faith and land, till in A.D. 1665 and thereafter again in His name, the South under Shivaji and his successors with War Har Mahadeva' on its lips rose in   resistance and destroyed the Mughal Empire.
