It is clear that the Mongols committed many ruthless and brutal acts in his life, and he is one who wiped out entire villages and innocent men, women, and children. However, one aspect of their brutality, though, is more prominent than the others: the brutality towards religion and ignorance and manipulation of the human mind.
