Bengal Subah not only used to represent 50% of Mughal gdp but also used to represent 10-12% of world’s gdp. 60% of Indo subcontinents trade used to be carried out from Bengal Subah to the outside world. No doubt it was the largest of the economy in Indo subcontinent and that’s why all the foreign powers set up trade post in Bengal. The period we are referring is later part of 17th century and early to mid part of 18th century not 16th century as you have quoted. For example Dhaka as a city is founded just 400 years ago. It’s only Mysore under Haider Ali and Tipu Sultan overtaken Bengal Subah GDP to be the largest Indo subcontinent GDP.
Well, it took Abul Fazal 13 years to compile Ain-i-Akbari and he began his work in 1590. So, Ain-i-Akbari is the official record of early seventeenth century Mughal Empire. Mughals lost control of Bengal in the early 18th century. Until and unless you have some official records/documents to backup your claim that Bengal, 3 times poorer than Punjab in the early seventeenth century Mughal empire, went on to become the richest province producing as much as 50% of entire GDP of the Mughal Empire (and upto 12% of the entire world) in just less than 50 years, your claim cannot be accepted.
As for international trade, unlike modern times, it constituted a very small part of the GDP back in the seventeenth century. So, please tell us, what, according to you, made Bengal so rich in just 50 years ?
And please provide the original/primary source for the ridiculous numbers you are quoting here
BD potential is FAR HIGHER than Pakistan and we shall see the results as early as the mid-2030s.
We, unlike you, are an independent nation who refuse to accept Indian/Hindu hegemony. No comparison
