ABSTRACT
Christian realm was shocked when the world famous Ani, the administrative center of Armenian Bagratunis in X. Century came under the Seljukian rule (August 16, 1064) by Sultan Alp Arslan. Surprised by this event the Armenian historians recorded in touchy statements that during and after the conquest of Ani, people were subject to unendurable tortures; massacres were committed; the clergymen were murdered and religious buildings were destroyed. However, taking into consideration both the personality of Sultan Alp Arslan and the history of his nation he could not have committed such vices as argued by Armenians. Furthermore, the facts that Islamic war law was applied by Moslem communities and eminent figures in law such as Nizamü'l-Mülk and Sultan Imamı were with Alp Arslan wipe out Armenian theses.
