The Great Siege of Buda (1686)
Outnumbered almost thirty-three to one, Muslims held out against a 200,000 man army for at least 2 years in two separate sieges.
: In the 17th century a powerful, well-experienced, well-trained and well-equipped army besieged the Ottoman castle of Buda, which today forms a part of modern day Hungary. This army was lead by Charles of Lorraine, and consisted of men recruited from Austria, Bavaria, Franconia, Swabia, Saxony, Brandenburg, Swedena and Hungary. This military machine was thus colossal, and made up of at least 20,000 cavalry, 30,000 foot soldiers, and 6,000 knights. The castle itself was defended by a small force of at most 4,000 soldiers (with an additional 3,000 non-combatants populating the city, along with 1,000 horses), armed with 200—500 cannons (a feat considering cannons had to be operated by a significant amount of men), lead by Abdur Rahman—the "Pasha of Buda". Followed by its geography, fortifications, and thick walls which gave it extra protection, it would manage to endure months of shelling, musket-fire and raw manpower. The war itself erupted on June 17th, 1686, gripping the Eurasian continent for several agonising months. In the midst of the siege the castle was time after time painfully repaired by the Turks, as instantly as they could manage, holding out ferociously, even though their numbers were miniscule in contrast to the vast, powerful and seemingly unending European army. The battle acosted a huge toll on Lorraine, as he even offered peace terms to the Turks on more than one occasion, but Rahman was having none of it, staunchly refusing to give in. What made the entire episode so tragic was that the Pasha's men were ultimately abandoned to their fate, which culminated into an orgy of violence.

In the News (March—April 2017 News!)
Pakistan airlines love story!

He couldn't simply stay away and be detached from her for long!
- In a significant step forward for human rights and equality, Canada leads the world by passing a motion condemning Islamophobia, called the "M-103" bill. Racists are shocked, and have begun hailing accusations of White genocide and the end of civilisation.
- Malia Bouattia, head of the National Union of Students, is awarded the Good Citizenship Prize, which included a vote from a Jewish Rabbi. Bouattia has long suffered from a with-hunt by the Israeli government who wants to silence her freedom of speech. Bouattia is an ardent support of freedom and equality.
- India, once again, is evicting hundreds of thousands of Muslims under the excuse of forest preservation. The Hindu majority, uncaring as always, ignores the issue and fails to protect their minorities. They also elect a Hindu religious leader in Uttar Pradesh who stated committing necrophilia on Muslim women was totally okay.
- The Pakistani courts deem it appropriate for a man to convert from Islam to Judaism in a significant step forward for freedom of expression in the country, showing that the majority Muslim nation is secure with it's own Islamic beliefs. It should be noted that Pakistan does not have any apostasy laws.
- Increasingly threatened by the increasing popularity of the boycott of the apartheid state of Israel, pro-Israel groups barge into a Palestinian solidarity meeting, and intimidate crowds by yelling racist toxic Islamophobic slogans, whilst at the same time throwing about accusations of "antisemitism". The Israeli media later falsely claims that the crowd started a "pogrom" against Jews, whilst the other compared it to the "Warsaw ghetto".
Frequently Asked Questions!
What is the Overall Purpose of This Project?
- To show all types of Muslims that they have a collective identity, no matter their background and religiousity; and also to show some non-Muslims that we too have our own story. This is why our articles are primarily in English.
What Types of Muslims is this Project Targeted Towards?
- Anyone. Muslim Muslims, Agnostic Muslims, Atheist Muslims, Cultural Muslims, Religious Muslims, Ethnic Muslims, Nationalist Muslims, and Ex-Muslims—basically whatever you call yourself. Even non-Muslims.
Are you Affiliated with Wikipedia or it's Sister Organisations?
- No, we are not a part of Wikipedia.
What Makes You Different from Wikipedia?
- Despite some valiant efforts by some of it's users, the overall user-base is not neutral when it comes to Islamic culture, beliefs, history and politics. There's a plethora of problems over at Wikipedia, and almost none of them will ever be resolved.
Where's the Proof That Wikipedia Has This Problem?
- Islam related or Muslim related articles hosted on Wikipedia often end up having the Muslim point-of-view totally or partially removed, making things unnecessarily negative, and in some cases are even censored out. This is particularly the case when it comes to persecution of Muslims in India for instance where glaring facts are routinely omitted or mass deleted even after they've been put in or discussed to death. Another example is the realisation that the world's first university, which was founded by a woman in Morocco, does not appear anywhere on Wikipedia's main article that deals with the oldest universities in the world.
Are you publicly editable?
- No, publicly editable encyclopaedias lead to incongruency, point-of-view, edit wars and unreliability. This project aims to correct the mistakes of Wikipedia (and other websites).
