#Aurangzeb lived 91 years. In death wrote will dividing the empire among three sons. Bahadurshah who was given 12 provinces killed other two but died in another 12 years #History
Bahadurshah’s son Jahandaar Shah killed his brothers and became #Mughal emperor in 1712, and his mistress, Lal Kunwar ruled by proxy. She was paid 2 Cr per Annum. The first NAC Of Delhi 😂🤦‍♂️
Jahaandar Shah was beheaded by his nephew in 1713, and 6 years of turmoil ended with Jahaandar Shah’s Son, Muhammad Shah’s ascendancy in 1719. #Mughal
Nadirshah arrived with defeated Muhammad Shah on 7th March. Nadirshah left Delhi, re-appointing Muhammad Shah on 5th May, 1737, taking entire Afghanistan in ransom. #History #Mughal
Portuguese annexed Goa in 1510. The first European colony was established in #India 16 years before Babur entered India to establish #Mughal empire.
There is not one scientific innovation or invention could be attributed to the entire duration of #Mughal rule.
In the war between Dara and Aurangzeb, Dara was supported by 49 Muslim kings and 14 #Rajput, #Aurangzeb had 9 Rajputs, 10 Maratha and 2 other #Hindu kings supporting him #History
The #British diluted the power of Muslim landowners, took law n order from them, made their position non-hereditary and opened administrative roles for #Hindus causing animosity
For the first time ever, under the British, #Muslims saw #Hindus as challenge to Islamic supremacy
One reason for sudden rise in the #Hindu stake in British administrative structure could be because while in population Hindus were 2:1 to #Muslims, in education proportion was 19:1 (William Adams report 1835,36 and 38)
Lord Bishop Heber wrote - it needs to be consistently reminded to the #Hindus that we (British) haven’t enslaved them, they already were conquered (1824)
While structured education for Muslims began 10 year before #Hindus, first #Hindu college began 10 years before Muslim college in Aligarh. English education was brought in at the behest of Bengali Intellectuals
While from #Hindus a prominent voice of Raja Ram Mohan Roy pleaded with British to bring in modern English education, #Muslims never volunteered
Between 1858 to 1878, 57 #Muslims Graduated, while 3155 #Hindus did
Before #Hindus readily took to the #British education, their liberal mind already had allowed them to learn Persian when it was the language of administration. Muslims had earlier opposed Sanakrit as they later opposed English
In the Mutiny of 1857, #Hindus were unsuspecting tools for #Muslims who fought to bring Islamic rule back. #Instructions we’re coming from the mosques. Jama Masjid was closed for five years.
