Very interesting website that contains original documents translated into english having to do with Aurangzeb's rule. Most of them about demolishing temples. A great tool for researching this period. http://www.aurangzeb.info/?m=1
Hi All, I've read a lot of positive news lately between Muslims and Sikhs. lots of shared history between Muslim sufis and Sikh Gurus. However one point of contention seems to be how Muslims and Sikhs view the Mughal ruler Aurangzeb. There seems to be different accounts of his legacy - either a pious Muslim leader who did execute people based purely on political grounds rather than religious ones, - on the other a despotic ruler who forced the Hindus to Islam. Historical records provide evidence for both. What are the views on the people on this forum?
