Removal of Sourced materials[edit]

user:Edward321 has removed sourced materials [1] and has included titles of expeditions that are not sourced. Such editing is clearly against WP policy. Xtremedood (talk) 22:46, 18 November 2016 (UTC)

It does seem that I did unintentionally remove reliably sourced material from this article once, which is an error which I will avoid repeating. OTOH, when it come to removing sourced info, Xtremedood has done it quite a bit in the last couple days.

I have checked the sources and they do not say as the author says. You can, however, check the sources in this article and they do indeed say that. Also, it is simply a rehash of this article and creating multiple articles for the same topic is against WP policy. For the Ahmad Raza Khan Barelvi article, you can see the discussion I had with user:MezzoMezzo, over here [14] where we mutually agreed upon what to put in the article. WP is indeed about collaboration and it is important that you first get the entire picture before making an accusation. An issue with the so called "caravan raids" issue is that the sources do not indicate as the sockpuppet article creator [15] states it does. I have checked several of the indicated sources and it does not state as the author says. Therefore an unsourced article with clearly misattributed sources that is also a rehash of the materials in this article is nothing more than a redirect to one of the article it tries to emulate, but while going against WP policies.

User:David A, the Caravan raids article is nothing but a collection of misattributed sources which consists of materials that are in this article by a confirmed sockpuppet [16]. To rehash this article goes against WP policy. To create an article based entirely on misattributed sources is against WP policy. Other users like User:Al-Andalusi have discussed and worked on bringing articles in accordance to WP policies, as seen here Expedition of Hamza ibn 'Abdul-Muttalib.
