H.G. Wells wrote in “Outlines of History” (NY: MacMillian Co., 1920, Vol. 2, p. 13):
“Because Mohammed too founded a great religion, there are those who write of
this evidently lustful and rather shifty leader
as though he were a man to put beside Jesus of Nazareth or Gautama or Mani.
But it is surely manifest that he was a being of commoner clay;
he was vain, egotistical, tyrannous, and a self-deceiver;
and it would throw all our history out of proportion if,
out of an insincere deference to the possible Moslem reader,
we were to present him in any other light.”
