This is just history revisionism with lots of whitewashing. Dara Shikoh was killed for being a anti-Islam. Numerous major Hindu temples of North India were destroyed during Aurangzeb time like Kashi Vishwanath and last time destruction of Somnath. I never understood what kind of tolerance he displayed by forced conversion reimposing Jizaya and Pilgrimage tax on Hindus.what muslim kings were not bad? and what hindu kings were not divine, the indian history needs to be revised and a revision needs to be made, aurangzeb would not be having hindu mistress before his death if he was such a bigot, i think the colonial history needs to be challenged and there might a several flaws in colonial narrative.
