সংক্ষিপ্ত বিবরন : Excerpt from The House of Islam: In the reign of Sultàn Abdul Mejid Khan, upon the termination of the war with Muscovy, a multitude of faithful Georgians and Circassians chose to cast themselves, their women and children, upon the bounty of the Padishah rather than endure the yoke of an infidel conqueror. They begged but leave to settle in some part of the Sultan's dominions, to dwell in peace among true believers in obedience to the law of God, as transmitted to Muhammed, His Apostle. But their spokesmen had fierce eyes, and, when a little emphasis seemed called for, each clutched quite naturally at the dagger in his sash. The Sultan's advisers - black-coated, red-capped Othmanlis of the eyes that see but never look - noted this slight discrepancy while placidly telling their beads. There were lawless spots in the empire.
