Starts with a usual propaganda video that india wasn't united and was only united twice in its entire history and consisted of many kingdoms. Under the mughals the empire only extended as displayed in the picture only during the rule of aurangzeb, and probably it took him quite a while in making such an extent as well.

Save for the first 2- the mughal emperors were barely, barely, barely n very barely 'mughals' themselves

These can be seen in Babur's n Humayun's portraits whereby their mongoloid features were prominent.

Akbar's features n later Emperors's were simply those of the stereotypical indo-Aryan type(Rajputs).

Mughals were descendants of Tamerlane who is also known as Temur.

Temur was of Tatar race; A Turco-Mongoliod race. They have mongoloid features like long sharp eyes.

Babur, the founder of Mughal Empire was a descendant of Tamerlane who was his great-great-great grandfather.
shah jahan was 3/4 indian as his mother was indian and dad (jahangir) was half indian half mughal/foreign blood. By Jahangir, the Mughal line had already became half indian, the Aurangzeb though was lesser indian only 2/5 as his mother was persian while father was 3/4 indian

I was not talking about Shah Jehan or intermixing of Moghuls with local Rajputs.

Bloodline and identification continues with father. A Malik man marries a Rajpoot woman; Their son wont be a Rajpoot, he will be Malik... his lineage will be traced from his father's bloodline... Bhutto-Zardari only exists in politics.

the member only said, they looked rajputs which is very true, but you assertion is more political. babur himself said his line is half mongol because his matralineal lineage was mongol and traced back to Gangis khan. , there have been instances where the dynasties (such as satavahana of india) followed matralineal line and not patralineal lineage. The nizamis asserted their turkic lineage even though they practically looked indian.

Agreed.

There is no disagreement on that.
The nizamis asserted their turkic lineage even though they practically looked indian.
Also true, likewise the Mirzas look practically Punjabis.

2nd emperor Humayun:





3rd emperor Akbar. Totally Indo-aryan looking of the Subcontinent:



4th emperor Jahangir
