  1. We agree that Akbar was an enlighten Monarch. But he was not an exemplary muslim ruler. you should better give examples from Sirat Taiba and Khulafa Rashidin.

  2. Dear Rahi, you are fortunate enough to have your query responded by a leading Historian of Pakistan Dr. Mubarek Ali. As you raised an objection to a certain para of my article regarding the religion of Emperor Akber.You plz visit the site of daily Dawn where you will find the article of Dr. Mubarek Ali entitled “Past Present:understanding Azad” published on Sunday June 1, 2014. He has beautifully responded to your objection.Thanks

    History is divided on the position of Akber.I personally comply with the group who say that Akber was a moderate and enlightened Muslim monarch.Some four hundred years back he practiced the now modern notions of diversity, pluralism, peaceful co-existance and tolerance.Detailed discussion on this issue need some more time.
    i suggest you to read the book of I.H Qureishi entitled “Muslim community in the Indo-Pak Subcontinent” to form your own opinion on Akbers real postion.

  4. Good written informative and interesting. But i may add that king akber was a non Muslim, he introduced a new religion, history says all this but the writer says something else
