There is fair amount of revenge by the hapless women who got forcibly converted. They ensure the next generation turn to match their marauding ancestors, by basically throwing a challenge to prove that the are worth their salt. The recent and neo-converts' progeny is under tremendous strain to prove that they are more arab than arabs. They are set on a path to find peace and spread peace. They can never find peace, until the whole duniya is peaceful.
Could "Hindu Kush" have been just as much "Mussalman kush". After all no Muslim invader/slave trader would have admitted that he was abducting or raping Muslims. Muslims don't kill Muslims you see. The vast majority of abductions from India seem to have gone from the north west of India (currently Pakistan) - regions that were subjugated by Islamic raiders 1000 years ago. All the slavery stories I have read are from 500 years ago or later. With a whole lot of Muslims going to central Asia one can understand why the culture shock may have been easier for abducted pretty girls. The question of Hindu women having to adjust in order to survive is unnecessary if the abducted girl is Muslim.
Just a couple of points shiv ji: First, mussalmans have no problem raping, looting, pillaging other muslim populations. Present case in point - Darfur region of sudan, where semitic arab mussalmans have been pillaging (not much to loot there) and raping (women have set up defensive camps, but it has not helped) their co religionists who are black african muslims. They have killed and/or displaced over a million Darfur residents in a campaign to take their lands. The raping, particularly has got out of hand. US and UN has sent special forces specially to protect the women. In general, the arabs despise the black africans, muslim or not. The pakis have taken to doing the same, as Ombaba no doubt found out first hand. That does not help the pakis with the arabs, however, because they look at the pakis about the same as the blacks. Beedis, malaysians and Indonesians are treated about the same too, perhaps a little worse.
Second, paradoxically the pakis et cetera become even more intense boot lickers of the arabs, arranging hunting parties for them in paki lands, sometime targeting endangered species for their master's hunting pleasure. This paradoxical behavior is even more intense in the early (max in first) generation of converts. The behavior is known as "zeal of the convert", and is distinct from stockholm syndrome. I took a little time to look into behavior of India's other muslim neighbor in the emrald waters of the Indian Ocean - The Maldives. First, I checked out the wiki page on Lakshadweep
, the neighborly close point of contact, so to speak. I was surprised by the following:
Maliku Atoll or Minicoy Atoll is the southernmost atoll of the Union Territory of Lakshadweep, India.....Maliku Atoll has been under Indian administrations since mid 16th century.... In December 1976, India and the Maldives signed a maritime boundary treaty whereby Maliku was placed on the Indian side of the boundary......... on 26 July 1982, Abdulla Hameed, the half-brother of Maldivian president Maumoon Abdul Gayoom and the Minister of Atolls for the Maldivian government, gave a speech in which he declared that Minicoy Island was part of the Maldives.... the Maldives was not intending to make a political claim over the atoll.
The diplomatic tiff seems to have blown over, but India has to be vigilant even with this pip squeek of a gathering of mussalmans.
But a closer look at the Maldives shows its inhabitant's flaming "zeal of the Convert" in its full glory. consider, for example:
Islam is the official religion of The Maldives. The open practice of all other religions is forbidden and such actions are liable to prosecution. Article 2 of the revised constitution says that the republic "is based on the principles of Islam." Article nine says that "a non-Muslim may not become a citizen"; Article ten says that "no law contrary to any principle of Islam can be applied" Article nineteen states that "citizens are free to participate in or carry out any activity that is not expressly prohibited by sharia or by the law."
There is more, and you can see that this island people who were Hindu and Buddhists for milennia, on conversion to islam changed into these religious ideologs. As usual, on conversion to muhmmud's barbaric religion, the zelous converts went on to destroy Buddhist and pre mohumdun archetecture:
The Buddhist Stupa
(the most well preserved, the largest and the last of the Buddhist temples that were destroyed) at Kuruhinna in Gan Island (Haddhunmathi Atoll). Contrary to contemporary belief, oral tradition tells of fierce resistance to the temple's destruction by its monks, who went on to stage a pitched battle in its defence

I would like to end this on an up beat, OT historical note, and pay homage to Sri Vallabh Bhai Patel, whose personal intervention got the Lakshadweep islands for India
in the nick of time.:
The inhabitants of these islands, remote from the mainland of India, heard the final news of the Partition and Independence of India some days after it occurred on 15 August 1947. As the islands were then British possessions and part of the Madras Presidency, in accordance with the Indian Independence Act 1947, enacted by the British parliament a month before, the islands transferred automatically to the new Union of India. However, considering that they also had a Muslim majority, it seemed possible that the new dominion of Pakistan might seek to lay claim to them. On the orders of Vallabhbhai Patel, the first Home Minister and Deputy Prime Minister of India, known as the Iron Man, a ship of the Royal Indian Navy was sent to the Laccadives (as they were then called) to hoist the Indian national flag and ensure the islands' integration into the new Union of India, aiming to thwart any similar attempt by Pakistan. Hours after the arrival of the Indian ship, vessels of the Royal Pakistan Navy were seen near the islands, but after observing the Indian presence they returned to Karachi.
