James mill divided indian history into three periods - hindu ,muslim and British .this periodisation has its own problem.It is difficult to refer to any period of history as hindu or muslim because of variety of faiths existed simultaneously in these periods .it is also not justified to characterize an age through the religion of the rulers of the time .what it suggest is that the lives and practice of others don't really matter .it is worth mentioning that even rulers in ancient India did not all share the same faith.
