Dear Patriots,
Following may kindly be examined in support of Raja Dahir being a Hindu king –
1.  Raja Dahir Sen (Sindhi pronunciation: [rɑːɟɑː ɗɑːɦirə]Sindhiراجا ڏاهر ,राजा ॾाहिरਰਾਜਾ ਡਾਹਿਰ‎; Sanskritराजा दाहिर सेनIASTRājā Dāhir; 663 – 712 CE) was the last Hindu ruler of Sindh and the last united King of Sindh, in present-day Pakistan, in the northern region of the Indian subcontinent. In 711 CE, his kingdom was conquered by the Ummayad Caliphate led by Arab General Muhammad bin Qasim. He was killed at the Battle of Aror at the banks of the Indus River, near modern-day Nawabshah. His family name is now carried as Dahri’s clan known to be now living in Karachi
2.  Why are some Pakistanis demanding a statue of Raja Dahir, the last Hindu king of SindhThe demand is small for now but it means that for the first time the official, Islamicised narrative of Pakistan’s history is being challenged publicly.
3.  What the Debate Around bin Qasim and Raja Dahir Tells Us About Pakistan and Nationalism….If we use the story of Ramayana, they became the Rams of the story. However, every Ram needs a Ravana, the penultimate villain, on the basis of whom his glory is projected. Thus entered the villainous Hindu rulers like Raja Dahir, Anandpala, Prithviraj Chouhan, Shivaji and others. For the true light of their rule to shine, the era preceding them needed to be darker. In order for these Muslim rulers to be just, the ones before them needed to be more atrocious.
4.  The tale of Last Hindu King – Raja Dahir:
5.  The Rajasthan government will soon introduce the biography of Raja Dahir Sen, the last Hindu ruler of Sindh, in the state-run school libraries. It has also decided to introduce BJP’s former MP Tarun Vijay’s book Sindhu Darshan.
6.   Indian history of NCERT books has been under strong influence of people like Bipin Chandra, Romila Thapar and Irfan Habib, who meticulously omitted those chunks of history that were testimonial to brutality of Muslim occupation and aftermath of the Muslim victory at any place. Raja Dahir was Pushkararany Brahmin. His capital was Brahmanabad, which was renamed as Mansura after the victory of Muslim Arabs. Rajas Dominion in last quarter of 7th AD was from Multan and Queta to Arabian sea and from the border of Seistan to Amarkot.

I have found no reference in which Raja Dahir was said to be anyone other than Hindu!
