History of Bahadur Shah || History of Mughal Empire

The Rajas and warrior tribes Racputs, who were strengthened by the failure of the Indian statesmen to put pressure on the feudal rulers, revolted and declared their denial of allegiance to the Mughal Empire. It was not possible to suppress the rebellions due to the influence of the Indian commanders assigned in the army. Seeing the uprisings of the local rulers as an opportunity, the Afghans started a rebellion movement and attacked the Mughal cities and began to carry out looting activities. On the other hand, when the Sikh sect started rebellion movements, the country witnessed a great internal uprising.

The empire was exposed to rebellions and attacks from four directions. Rajahs, Rajputs, Afghans and Sikhs were carrying out attacks all over the country with successive attacks, and the rebellions could not be dealt with because the Indian statesmen and commanders did not put pressure on the rebellious Indian subjects.

 The opportunistic attitudes of the British and Dutch colonists worsened the situation. The resulting revolts continued for years. Bahadır Shah was killed as a result of these rebellions and his brother Jahnangir Shah succeeded him (1712).

After this date, the state bust went into a mess. The failure to suppress the revolts, the colonial companies' involvement in activities that fueled the rebellion, and the conflicts for the reign on top of all these, dragged the country into a great disaster. Mughal Empire was now unmanageable.
