Most of the muslims of the subcontinent suffer from Stockholm syndrome that's why they can't understand why Indian actually despise Islamic rule.
lets see from historical point of view, Hindus are suffering from Same Stockholm syndrome and on even greater scale because everything you have was given to you guys from Indo-Aryans who migrated from Afghanistan. your religions, languages, cultures, customs etc are all from blond haired blue eyed ancient Afghans who decimated you ancestors and colonized your people, caste system was their last try to keep their bloodline pure.

It's not matter of 'religion' at all. For Indian people religion has always been personal matter and it's disheartening when every cultural aspect of the subcontinent is branded as 'religious' and subjugated on false ground.

Hindus were and still are totally fine with people worshiping whichever God they want and they also show respect towards symbols of other religions. That's why so many sects survived here and a few of them also took exile here

The problem arises when this religious tolerance becomes one way road for us.
When certain religions declare supremacy of their 'faith' and try to proselytize in both direct and covert manner. When every mark of our culture is branded as 'haram'. When our customs are declared 'jahiliya'. When people refuse to assimilate. When people start wearing their religion on their head and stop following rule of the land.
is that why Hindus in India are lynching Muslims, Dalits and Buddhists for eating beef on streets today ? thats so secular even our brain hurts ! sikhs are not even considered separate religion despite their movement since 1950s.

Our places of worship were demolished. Most important of all when our large universities and other educational institutes(which were matter of pride for us) were eradicated. When our valuable manuscripts were burnt and smuggled. When our scholars were chopped off on the name of ONE TRUE GOD.
reminds me of Babri mosque demolition not a long ago by Hindus, there are written accounts of how Hindu kings such as sungas destroyed 10,000 Buddhist temples and built their own Hindu temples on top of the ruins.

imposed a foreign ideology and a foreign language on us. Which gave cognitive dissonance to the native people of the subcontinent. Mughal era resulted in cessation of Indian intellectual pursuits in the subcontinent. Indian maths, astronomy, philosophy, drama, poetry sanskrit language etc stopped developing (only survived in South and Kashmir).
Most of Islamic kings showed apathy towards this land's culture and people(unless they converted).
what goes around, comes around. we were wrath of God sent to Punish you guys for destroying Buddhism from India.

also Khiljis did that to you guys because he was a General and warrior, you can say he was a cruel guy because he wasn't.

Only muslim kings/intellectuals who ever showed intrest towards learning about this culture can be counted on the fingers. A few of them had horrible fate because of their 'un-Islamic' act.
Most important of them all the religion Islam itself which is anti-thesis of Hindu idea of 'God', was imposed on us. From the liberty of 'seeking'/'introspecting'/'rejecting'/'understanding'/'seeing'/'assimilating' to 'believing' (that too in a foreign ideology and you can't criticize it).
Culture is the symbol of spiritual immortality of a 'race' and for us this invasion was a blow on the vital points.
it was a bad idea to assimilate into Castiest Hindu fold, look at Akbar he did everything he could to please Hindus, even took your Rajput queen as wife yet his tomb was destroyed by Hindu jats and his bones were burned, Aurangzeb on other hand spent his entire life fighting Hindus and today his small grave is safe and sound deep into India.

According to who - Afghans or Indians?
Indians consider all Muslim invaders of the subcontinent as predators, and their descendants parasites who stayed on to protect the loot. They were the termites who did their best to harm Indian people and society.
Afghans and Desi Muslim of course, i have met Bangladeshis who say that Khiljis are their heroes. one bengali muslim even said jokingly that khilji was as Afghan by birth but he became hero of Bangal by the time he died.

as this is a history forum i will say this bluntly, opinion of Indian nation is irrelevant, you were conquered and enslaved by people from all corner of earth for thousands of years because you are weak people. my grandfather used to say that in good ole days waking into India and raid the villages was like cake walk for us, every raid into India got us large sum of Gold, women and diamonds that were considered best in Bazaars of Central Asia.
