Akbar’s General, Abdulla Khan Uzbeg enslaved 50,000 men & women.

Jahangir has sent 200,000 Indians as slave to Iran in 1619-20 alone.

@aumkotwal , the same source further quotes Manrique to explain condition under Shah Jahan. His tax collectors carried away peasants along with their children & wives to “slave fairs” to realise the tax.
@aumkotwal The Fatawa-e-Alamgiri sponsored by Aurangzeb had laws to encourage slavery.

It had provisions for:

1)the right of Muslims to purchase + own slaves
2)Muslim man's right to have sex with slave girl he owns or owned by another Muslim (with master's consent).
3) no inheritance rights for slaves

4)The testimony of all slaves was inadmissible in a court of law.

5)slaves require permission of the master before they can marry

6)an unmarried Muslim may marry a slave he owns but a Muslim married to a Muslim woman may not marry a slave
7) conditions under which the slaves may be emancipated partially or fully

All above informations about Slavery in Fatwa-e-Alangudi have been sourced from:

Fatawa i-Alamgiri, Sheikh Nizam, al-Fatawa al-Hindiyya, 6 vols
