Answer :

Yes, it is true that Aurangzeb practiced anti-revolutionary religious policy and mistreated with the people of other religions. Following are the causes which prove that the anti-religious policy of Aurangzeb led to the downfall of the empire: -

•From Babur to Shah Jahan all were tolerant kings, and they were clear about the fact that cooperation with the people of other religions will only help them to increase the extent of Mughal Empire. But the son of Shah Jahan, Aurangzeb was the orthodox Sunni Muslim and exercised strict control over the people of other religions.


•He reimposed Jizya tax on the non-Muslim population.


•He failed to establish as a king as he exercised strict religious policies over the non-Muslim population of the country.


•He took all the state services from the Hindus which led to the revolt by the Marathas, Rajputs, Jats, Satnamis, and Sikhs. This led to the downfall of the Mughal Empire.
