Darah Shukoh, NOT Arungzebh

fatherandson/

What if Darah Shukoh, rather than Arungzebh, had succeeded Shah Jahan as padshah of Mughal India? Would the Sufi ideas of this mystic religious syncretist have contributed to alleviating sectarian strife in India? Would Islam as a world religion have been changed by an experiment in Sufi governance of a major Muslim empire? Would Darah Shukoh have had the tenacity and political acumen to hold his throne?
