    When the Moghuls swept into India they took over a Hindu temple in Ayodhya and converted it to Islam. For several centuries the Moslems prayed there, insisting it was purified by Allah by Believers who carried the message of the Prophet. After the Partition of the sub-continent the temple, which was in the Republic of India remained Moslem until a few years back when a Nationalist Hindu government thought it would be nice to give the temple back to the Hindus. Blood flowed on the streets because the Moslems, who were are a minority in India thought they could impose their beliefs, at least, by having converted the temple. Alas, it didn't work, and the Temple in Ayodhya is a Hindu place of worship, as it was before the Moghuls took it over. I guess Moslems imagine they can walk over anybody else's religion as long as they have enough weapons. Then too Hagia Sophia in Istanbul was a Greek Orthodox Church--these days it's a mosque.
