Guru Gobind Singh and The Mughals
Babar, the founder of the Mughal empire in India, met Guru Nanak, founder of the Sikh faith, and sought his blessings so that he might succeed in establishing an empire in this country.
On the other hand, Aurangzeb, last of the Great Mughals, so estranged Guru Gobind Singh, last of the Sikh Gurus, that not only the latter would not see him, though thrice invited to do so, he also decided to stake his all in efforts to destroy the Mughal empire. It would, thus, seem that Guru Gobind Singh vowed to destroy what had been established with the blessings of Guru Nanak.
Now, what was the cause of this total reversal of relations between the House of Babar and the House of Baba Nanak? Was it a sudden development, resulting from the personal idiosyncrasies of one or the other? Or was it a gradual growth, generated and promoted by mutual actions and reactions; a natural, inevitable outcome of the historical process that had been going on ever since the historic meeting between Babar and Guru Nanak?
