jahangir's cruelty

shareShare facebook twitter
Posted: 8 years ago
Jehangir, though married to mansingh's sister(man bai), compelled Mansingh's son, Jagat Singh, to surrender his daughter to the imperial harem. In a way, therefore, he was so blinded by his lechery that he found nothing wrong in marrying both Manbai and her grand niece. It was because of the utter shame and humiliation of the alien Moghuls dipping at their will and pleasure into their sacrosanct homes and carrying away Hindu women that Raja Bhagwandas stabbed himself, Daswandh committed suicide, a remonstrating Mansingh was sought to be throttled and poisoned by Akbar, and Mansingh's son Jagat Singh drank himself to death.


jagangir hated Akbar so much that as early as 1591 A.D. i.e. when Jehangir was only 22 years old, he poisoned Akbar.

Salim alias Jehangir had Abul Fazl, a so called gem of Akbar's court, ambushed and murdered.

murder/suicide of manbai(cousin/first wife of jahangir,):

A year or two later Prince Salim committed yet another murder. The victim this time was Hindu wife Manbai, sister of Mansingh and daughter of the Jaipur royal family, who was first wife of jahangir.
In one version of Jehangirnama it is stated that she died after a three-day fast. But it is well known that no one dies by a three-day fast. In another version it is stated that she committed suicide by taking poison. But in contemporary chronicles it is variously stated that she died following a quarrel with a harem-colleague or with Jehangir himself. The latter version is the most plausible because Jehangir was known for his propensities to murder people in cold blood . Had Manbai not been murdered, there would have been an inquiry into her death. But neither Akbar nor Jehangir batted an eyelid, much less ordered an inquiry into Manbai's death; it shows that she was the victim of a plot by Jehangir . It was because of this foul murder of his sister, only about a year before Akbar's death, that Mansing plotted to bypass Jehangir, his own brother-in-law, and instead proclaim Prince Khusru (Jehangir's son by Manbai) as emperor.

And we cannot forget the inhuman murders of Guru Arjan Dev whom he suspected to have helped Khusrau as well as his wife NurJahan's former husband Sher Afghan.

He himself went on to have Khusrau blinded after he got captured in the rebellion he made against Jahangir.
 
Also he was known to be pretty self-obsessed, though himself to be God-like, envying Prophet Mohammad and was attempting to have a cult of sorts established in his name, if not religion by keeping flatterers around him whom he termed as disciples.

Thanks for the facts monny, but we could have done without this link
The writings here are too much religiously-biased and could hurt sentiments of many of our Islamic readers, who I am sure, despise brutality, may it have been done by anyone Smile

this post has nothing to do with religion.i posted it to share information about jagangir's cruelty n not to defame a religion.

dara sikoh was born in mughal family but was spiritually inclined .he got many Hindu scriptures translated to Persian language...

we r discussing  a person n not a religion..

if we r discussing about a dacoit n if he is hindu or chirsttian than it does not means tht we r defaming hinduism or chirstianity
