He also said that many mistakes have been made during the medieval period. During the interview with a news channel, he also blamed communist historians who tried to hide the truth, “It is a fact that temples were demolished and there is no benefit in hiding the truth” , said K.K. Mohammad.  

History of the Quwwat-ul-Islam and Qutub Minar :-

In 1200 AD, Qutub-ud-din-Aibak began the construction of the structure but he could only finish the basement. His successor, Iltutmush constructed more storeys on the structure. It was finished in the era of Firoz Shah Tughlak in the year 1368.

Many inscriptions of Hindu temple have been found in the Quwwat-ul-Islam Mosque and Qutub Minar. They clearly indicate that these structures were built after demolishing Hindu temples. These are those scars that are inflicted on the hearts of Hindus as they indicate the cruelty and hatred of Islamic invaders in India.
