Repulse of Arab raids into India in 7th century second half:

With consolidation of the Umayyad Caliphate in the Arab world, the Umayyad

Caliphate launched expeditions against India. These were from what is extreme

North West India of those days around the Khyber Pass and down to the sea coast

in Baluchistan.

Unlike their success in Iran, the Arabs faced a lot of resistance, only borderline

success and successive defeats. The Zunbil Kings and Turki Shahis defeated them

repeatedly blocking their access to India through the mountain passes.

The Arab forces attempted to infiltrate through Baluchistan but in the process

their armies were defeated and four Arab commanders killed. The maximum the

Arabs could achieve during a 50 year campaign between 650 and 700 AD were

toe- hold and border area occupations.

📜Battles for Delhi: Dilli Kareeb AST is a must-read for every Indian who wants to understand the price of freedom. The storytelling format makes it fascinating and engaging at the same time.
