Even if he was not hands on in the running of his empire, it was still founded on his policy of religious toleration. Babur was a Sunni Muslim (Manas: History and Politics, “Babar”), but he was very lax in Muslim religious observance and practice (Farooqui, 285) and practiced open-minded, tolerant Islam (BBC, “Mughal Empire (1500s, 1600s)). He did not persecute other religions’ followers and even prized learned men’s religious discussion (Farooqui, 284). Babur died in 1530 and passed the torch to his son, Humayun (Duiker and Spielvogel, 434).

Duiker and Spielvogel, World History

The Mughal court and empire was a blending of Persian, Islamic and Indian cultures (Farooqu, 284). The civilization was very fond of arts (Duiker and Spielvogel, 442), grand architecture (BBC, “Mughal Empire (1500s, 1600s)”), and poetry (Duiker and Spielvogel, 444). However, the thing the Mughals are most well known for is their religious tolerance; especially that of the emperor, Akbar. In this paper, the most well-known of the Mughal rulers and their varying degrees of religious tolerance will be discussed. Furthermore, Akbar and his religious policies will then be compared to the others; as to demonstrate that he was the most religiously tolerant.
