'Questionable and unjustifiable use of Tabri as source for content on this article by wikipedia standards

Substantial quotes in this article are taken from Al Tabri who lived from 838 to 923 AD . The following informations is taken from wikipedia articles regarding Tabri and his works .

History of the Prophets and Kings by Muhammad ibn Jarir al-Tabari

The History of the Prophets and Kings (Persian: تاریخ طبری , Arabic: تاريخ الرسل والملوك Tarikh al-Rusul wa al-Muluk, popularly known Tarikh al-Tabari) is a historical chronicle written by Persian author and historian Ibn Jarir al-Tabari d. 310H (838-923) from the Creation to AD 915,

Content[edit]

The introduction of this work itself states :

The main purpose of Tabari was to write history according to the science of narration. That is to say he quotes the narrator without interfering in anway.

Tabari wrote history, theology and Qur'anic commentary. His legal writings were published first and then continued to appear throughout his life. Next were his commentaries on the Qur'an. Lastly, his history was published. Despite a style that makes it seem he drew largely on oral sources, written material (both published and unpublished) provided him with the bulk of his information.

Cosequently the content sourced from Tabri in this article needs to be removed

Kindly tell me sir, then how was Karman, the leader of the first expedition killed in the expedition and even after his death, his army defeated Sind, in an age when the death of the commander destroys the army. Also, another point to note is that Persia fell in 651 AD to Muslims, Spain in 718 and Sind in 721 AD. If it turned out that occupying Makran and it's suporting Sind was such easy, then why did the Muslims sent numerous expeditions (I may be wrong for the exact number, but the minimum is 8) to occupy that kingdom? Did it give such a great resistance? The Muslims were able to reach Spain covering all Africa but were not interested in the east? That too in the direction where India and China lie, with their main aim being converting as many Kafirs as possible? Or were they unable to? It's a different case that the son of Dahir reconquered Sind from the Arabs. One thing the author conveniently forgot was when a member of the raid party asked a native how stong is the region, hereplies if a small army comes, we will destroy it and if a large army comes, that will be starved. Another thing, Alexander lost more soldiers in Makran than the total number of soldiers he lost in all Asia till date. That was Makran. Kindly rectify the points. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 117.195.132.198 (talk) 19:16, 20 August 2008 (UTC)
