Q. 5 D

List any four causes for the downfall of the Mughal Empire in India.

Answer :

Babur established the Mughal empire in India. The four causes for the downfall of the Mughal empire in India are as follows: -

1. The first and the foremost cause of the downfall of the Mughal Empire is the religious policy of the Aurangzeb. He mistreated the people of other religions.


2. As the empire covered distant and large parts of the country, it becomes difficult to exercise control which led to the revolts by the people.


3. There was no law of primogeniture, i.e., eldest son acquiring the throne. This led to the unhappiness among his sons, and they became the cause of their own downfall.


4. Also, the emergence of the Europeans led to the downfall of the Mughal Empire in India.
