Essay from 2012 in the Department of Theology - Comparative Religious Studies, printed on one side, grade: none, Ruhr-Universität Bochum (Ceres - Center for Religious Studies), event: Hinduism, language: German, abstract: 1. Introduction The Mughal Empire emerged at the beginning of 16th century India. The founder of the empire is considered to be Barbur (¿ahir ad-Din Mu¿ammad Babur), who overthrew the Sultanate of Delhi in the Panipat campaign against Ibrahim Lodi in 1526 and occupied the cities of Delhi and Agra. However, Babur died after only four years of reign in Year 1530. He was succeeded by his son Humayun (Na¿ir ud-Din Mu¿ammad Humayun), who, however, was only able to shape the empire little. The Mughal Empire reached its heyday between 1556 and 1707. The rulers Akbar, Jahangir, Shah Jahan and Aurangzeb extended the borders of the empire over a large part of the Indian subcontinent.

Akbar's planned reforms and criticism of this
