Very Nice chapter how the mixed but still overall sucess of the khalifah Al-Mu'tasin and how consolidated back the Caliphate, very nice update buddy
Very nice and interesting news buddy. The existence of Ruma literally over Rome and Vatican heads, and more successful Muslim Mediterranean would make unique the relationship with dhimmi and not dhimmi, specially the nazarean ones.I was going to leave it till later, but the next chapter will be part of the big religion update; this part focusing on the non-Muslims in the Islamic world.
Actual numbers and percentages of conversion are notoriously contested within Islamic historiography, but Richard Bulliet's Conversion to Islam in the Medieval Period: An Essay in Quantitative History is as good a place to start as any.

Certainly still a minority in most of the Caliphate, but is it restricted mostly to the upper classes or has there been any widespread conversions?
Good spot on the Jains.
It's not that foreign socialist parties consider the PRG to be too radical, but because they are justifiably worried that the government is a mostly unaccountable military junta.So that is how the Socialist/Communist India happen, the redacted take away the fun but is telling how nations and doctrines evolved, specially other socialist nations consider India too radical her own sake( a reverse OTL SU just cop outed all the moderated movements), that well..
Interesting, that still count as too radical for other more 'mainstream/moderated' factions, specially that redacted theorist version of socialist ideology.... and yeah a literal Army with a worker union than double as state...too radical more pinkos out there.It's not that foreign socialist parties consider the PRG to be too radical, but because they are justifiably worried that the government is a mostly unaccountable military junta.
And the redacted parts are necessary as I don't actually know the specifics just yet.
