Talk:Zanj Rebellion

I deleted "or Negro Rebellion". The word "negro" wasn't introduced until 1545 AD so it could not have been called the Negro Rebellion before the word "Negro" was introduced. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Othelllo (talkcontribs) 04:02, 21 December 2015 (UTC)

I deleted an ambiguous sentence about how the "slaves' treatment increased after the rebellion." I assume a language barrier was the cause of the unclearness. Whoever posted it, please clarify and resubmit.

I erased a quote saying that the revolt eventually 'failed and replaced it with 'subsided'.. If the revolt lasted for over 14 years and they even built their own capital then obviously it was n't a failed revolt, choose your words more carefully, who ever wrote this.Taharqa 19:03, 26 March 2007 (UTC))

Peak propinquity[edit]

"Moktara, the Elect City, which at its peak was within 70 miles of Baghdad" Eh? Is this to suggest the distance often changed, between the two capitals? Jim.henderson 04:20, 7 May 2007 (UTC)


I changed the name of the first section from "recipe" to "antecedents". It looked like vandalism to me and I couldn´t find any meaning to the word "recipe" that would make sense in this context, but I might be mistaken since English is not my native language.

500,000 slaves.[edit]

"It grew to involve over 500,000 slaves and free men who were imported from across the Muslim empire and claimed over "tens of thousands of lives in lower Iraq""

The citation for that claim is a dead link. --HakimPhilo (talk) 21:09, 11 June 2015 (UTC)

Edit: Someone found out a working link, however as far as I read I found no mention of 500,000 slaves. Can someone quote the specific passage if it exists? Thanks. --HakimPhilo (talk) 09:25, 12 June 2015 (UTC)
