I read one of the person state in their review that the book was biased and stated the Muslim poets to be treacherous and conniving. I think it is quite accurate in that. Islam is a religion that has to reform in its teachings. Most of the muslims deny that because they are in fear and some are still questioning inside themselves what is wrong and what is right.
As a kashmiri pundit, I know the history of kashmir that was passed down to me orally from my mother. There was a lot of ruthlessness in the muslim rulers and lots of forced conversions used to occur in Kashmir.
