Changes[edit]

This article is full of bias with lack of any references or citations and many grammatical errors. Furthermore the author also seems to be praising muslim conquests in the Indian sub-continent and portraying Indian armies as weak. I would also like to point out that many of the weapons referenced in the article also originate from the indian sub-contient but have been implied as having muslim origins, with some already having been extensively used by indian armies i.e. battle-axes, bows and arrows, daggers etc upon until this point. It seems the sole purpose of this article was to insult people from the sub-continent and praise muslims. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 86.161.162.190 (talk) 17:48, 1 December 2011 (UTC)

I'm not sure about prejudice, but I know that most daggers are not 22 feet or 175 inches long unless giants are using them; the entry on Khatars seems mathematically impossible. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 74.64.109.203 (talk) 02:01, 8 November 2013 (UTC)
