Was The Mughal Rule All That Bad?
#2
<!--QuoteBegin-akbarkhan+Aug 7 2006, 12:08 PM-->QUOTE(akbarkhan @ Aug 7 2006, 12:08 PM)<!--QuoteEBegin-->Salam Indian brothers,

I am wondering whether Mughal rule was all that bad. Let's analyze a little and find out.

<b>People don't reply to such outrageous ideas propounded in the name of logical questions. Nevertheless, in the hope that some sense will dawn on you, I am writing a reply</b>

Accusation#1: There was opppression during mughal rule
Response: There was oppression prior to mughal rule, such as caste discrimination, despotism and so on.

<b>Please read the various caste related discussions here before you start comparing the so called "caste discrimination" happened before Mughal rule. To compare religious taxing, sustained rape of women (and considering there were arabs, I am sure they did a lot of men and boy rape as well), slavery, systematic destruction and looting of temples with caste discrimination is bloody arogant of you</b>

Accusation#2: Mughals killed a lot of people.
Response: It was the medieval times, people were killing each other all over the world.

<b>So the Mughals were no different than other barbarians from the North and the west. Sort of contradicting your thread title, don't you think?</b>

Accusation#3: Mughals killed in the name of religion.
Response: vaishnvaas and shiavas were killing each other in the name of their respective religions.

<b>Any sources for this? - other than (jihadi / christian missionary) websites?</b>
Accusation#4: Mughals plundered temples.
Response: So did hindu kings. Even today, are you not accusing your own leaders of plundering temples? And those secular leaders whom you accuse did not come from Mars, they're from the hindu community.

<b>Again, your statements show the bigots you people are - I am not going to defend the great Hindu kings, or the "secular" leaders of my country - We Hindus know the difference between them and the Mughals</b>

Accusation#5: Women were raped mercilessly.
Response: In the 21st century, in a developed USA, women are going through this merciless punishment. So why single out something that happend in the medieval times, when even so-called modern, progressive people are much worse?

<b>I don't see any other point in your so called "legitimate" questions other than more bigotry</b>

Accusation#6: India became poor due to mughal rule, but Brits gave us railways. <!--emo&Rolleyes--><img src='style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/rolleyes.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='rolleyes.gif' /><!--endemo-->
Response: The fact that Indians prostrate in front of white people never ceases to amaze me. Due to Bengal famine alone, 30m people died. But Indians love to ignore that and focus on their contributions, whatever they are. But in the case of Mughals, why not do the same? Aha, we all know why, don't we?

<b>...and more bigotry</b>

Accusation#7: Mughals didn't contribute.
response: why should they? They were conquerors, they did not come to India to do social service. Like other races at the time, they too wanted to conquer and earn wealth. So why blame them, when the whole world was doing the same?

<b>...and more bigotry</b>

There are many more accusations which can be answered adequately, the chief of it being medieval times and the whole world was barbaric. So to accuse the mughals alone would be hypocritical. I am not sure if you guys will ban me for this post, even though i haven't said anything vulgar. I am just voicing a different view, that's all.

<b>If your so called "rebutals to accusations" are like the above, I suggest you take them to the unmentionable forums from where you come (Hint: The people from the North West of the erstwhile Akhanda Bharat)</b>
