I sure would like to convert this fiction into reality. Just Imagine all of India, Pakistan, Afghanistan and Bangladesh under the same Power making progress as a nation with Justice and Equality for all as in the days of Akbar the Great.

But then again, I am a Mughal and may be biased in favour of the Mughal empire.

Do they contain stories about Canada or Mexico ruling USA? Or maybe, the local Indian tribes ruling over Europe?
Yes, they do sometimes, or the Aztecs never falling etc. Various different outcomes of our Civil war are often popular, or time travell to other times.

Mughals were Crushed to Death by the Marathas. So Muslims would be Living in a Hindu Swarajya. :lol:

Now Replace Mughals and Muslims with Marathas and Hindus. That makes Sense. :tup:

The Mughal Empire would have flourished if not for Aurangzeb. Aurangzeb is single handedly responsible for sowing seeds of religious hatred. There was religious friction during the rule of other Mughals but Aurangzeb was the first true fanatic. Anyways - look at the British Empire in 1946 and the map would be exactly the same. So if the Cabinet Mission Plan had been adopted by the Congress - it was accepted by Jinnah and the Muslim League - India might still look the same.

Alternate history is for people living in alternate worlds..

I guess these Bengalis consider themselves equal Mughal as their previous western counterparts think.. Every kid roaming on the street may not be able to tell his name but he will say "I am Mughal"

True Aurangzeb alone was responsible for its downfall... If he had made peace with marathas, his treasury would not have got dried, and peace would have been ensured... He went after Sikh gurus to earn their enimity...

He was very aggressive and pissed off a lot of people in his empire.

This lead groups like the Marathas, Sikhs, etc to wage war against him.

He succeeded in quelling the rebelling at first, but what he left his successor was a broke empire who's territory was getting taken by the Marathas.

He did too much.

I think more realistically, had British not intervened/invaded the sub-continent, then present day Pakistan/Afghanistan and Indian Punjab and Indian Kashmir would have been part of the Sikh empire, while everything else (India + BD) would have become part of the Maratha empire. The Mughal empire had disintegrated in front of the Marathas and Sikhs well before the British came.

Since we are talking about alternate history here, I would like to add that the map presented in the OP would have been what India would look like anyways had the 1946 Cabinet mission plan been accepted. So its not like it would need Mughal rule to look like that, it could look like that as a democratic secular unit had the Cabinet Mission Plan been accepted in 1946.

^^ what Shivaji Maharaj was doing was affecting other peoples too

Chatrasaal bundela revolted against mughals

Maharaja Rajsingh was already headache for mughals

so Aurangzeb's move to invade marathas was right
