The War ended up, however, being a massacre, since most of the Buddhists didn't followed Guru Susarman in 704. This resulted in Chandrajara assaulting innocent Buddhists and murdering villages to punish the few rebels. Chandrajara ended up taking back a good part of the Bengal region from the Buddhist within six years.
During that time, Hirapal Yadava was able to build up his defences and to hire mercenaries from Tibet to fight for him. But Chandrajara just continued focusing on the forces of Guru Susarman, leaving Hirapal alone.
This conflict was used as an excuse by the Indian Empire to broke their relations with the Ganga Dynasty and to mobilized troops on the frontier. This would lead to the Second Great War of India, which would surpass the local Ganga Buddhist Crisis in importance.
