Mongols, barbarians of all times: killed millions of people callously

(Web Desk) – Mongols were the other name of barbarousness; they could not rest unless they drink blood and erect minarets of humans’ skulls. They were not hominoid indeed. Part of Central Asia, they ruled almost of half world. Wherever they went, the land belonged to them; people threw their belongings without any resistance knowing it would terminate any chance of survival.

It is the biggest loss of any nation. 20 million Chinese, seven million Germans, and 2.5 million Japanese were killed. When these numbers are compared with the killings of Mongols, one can estimate their bloodthirstiness at a time when modern weaponry was not in existence.
