If I was not Muslim, then I don't know if you would be able to stop him. He was very harsh, and would not have stood for people standing up to him. However, if I had to say or do something, I would probably gather up a group of people and try to talk to him. Even though he would probably try to kill us and not even listen, it would still be good to try to compromise.
(But since that would have probably not worked, I would have just rebelled like the actual people did. At least we know that that worked.)
I agree with Tiffany.Why?Well it is beater to do it with other people then by your self.
I agree because he was very harsh, and i would've rebelled the moment he bacame the ruler
I agree with Tiffany, I probably would have rebelled. I would do this because I would hate living under Aurangzeb.
If I lived with Aurangzeb as emporer I would have gathered a team to assasinate him. I wouldnt want him to be emporer.
I agree with you, Kyle. I wouldn't want someone who hated most of the people he ruled over (because of their religion) in charge of me. Most of the population would probably agree, so it would be easy to gather a group to rebel.
I agree with Tiffany and Kyle. It would be way easier to gather a group of people then to just go up to Aurangzeb by yourself. Rebelling would probably be better than anything else.
I understand why everyone is saying they would form a team, but I don't think that is very realistic because there weren't that many non-Muslims so it would be hard to figure out who was really on your side. Instead I would just pretend to be a Muslim to convince Aurangzeb to treat me like most others. It would be worth not staying completely true to my religion rather than suffering the harsh torture of Aurangzeb.
If I was under the rule of Aurangzeb, I would rebel against him. He was a very harsh ruler and I would not be able to stand him. I would also gather a group of people to help me rebel against him, because if I didn't, then I would get killed right away.
I agree with you Jessica. I am pretty sure he wouldn't even give you a chance to say anything and just kill you. Plus if you're a non-Muslim, that would be even worse. So, it would be best to rebell against him. But if nobody wanted to join at all, and I had no choice but to speak with him, I would tell Aurangzeb that his people might rebell and that many people will attempt to assassinate you. Also, that he should have respect for non-Muslim people, because not only are you ruling an empire where almost 90% is non-Muslim, but you are surely to be kicked from throne.
I agree wit Jessica because we need to rebel against him. He deserves it and since he was such a harsh ruler, it just makes sense.
I am not sure if I could say something one to one, but I could start a rebellion group to stop Aurangzebs harsh rule. I am sure he would kill the group, but it would be worth a risk. And maybe, if people saw how brave we non-Muslims were, then maybe those people would join in. So, the rebellion would grow stronger, and we could make Aurangzeb stop the harsh rule... Even though he might not listen and kill us, it was worth a try.
I agree with you Julia. It would totally be worth it to start a rebellion group. Even if Aurangzeb would kill us.
I would do so as well, but make sure to keep it a complete secrecy. If they knew we would get slaughtered in an instant.
I agree because it is like if you do something nice to someone they will do something nice to spread the "love". Except instead of "love" it would be spreading hate against the ruler who already was hated. Also so what if you die; he probably was making you pay taxes so that you don't have enough for food and starving is worse than execution.
I agree. It will be worth starting a rebellion that would kill him for his harsh rule against non-muslim.
If Aurangzeb was my Emperor I would pretend to be a Muslim instead of trying to kill him because killing him seems to risky. We already know he is a BAD DUDE and would not fool around with a non-Muslim trying to get rid of him. Even if I gathered a group to come with when we rebelled, how would you know if they are really non-Muslim? They could just be pretending also and kill you instead of Aurangzeb, purely because he is "fair" to Muslims.
I would not be able to say something to Aurangzebs face, but I would probably start a rebellion group. Maybe if people were just brave enough they would have said something. Also, if enough people were in the rebellion there could be a slight possibility that we could stop Aurangzebs harsh rule.
A way that I would have stopped him by getting pretty much all of the people of India and I would rebel. I mean almost all of the citizens against the government, you would have to win. Also he wasn't even a good ruler to us anyways.
I would try to overthrow him. It would be ridiculously difficult to do, however, if it worked we would be free from his harsh demands. The new ruler would lift the harsh policies.
I agree because that way he cant come back and kill everyone else Personally I would make sure he was dead so he could never come back.
I agree with Isabella because yes it would be hard to overthrow Aurangzeb,but when that ends life will be easier at the end.Also,the new ruler will get rid of all of those harsh rules and make those rules fair to everyone.
I would get all the Hindus and Muslims that I can and we would write a letter of freedom. I would put a writing about keeping the Hindus safe and the freedom to be Hindu without being persecuted.
I agree with Brandon I would gather a gather a group of people and talk to him and try to get him to treat people better.If that didn't work I would rebel
I agree Brandon, writing a letter to persuade him could be a way to go. As long as it's done right it could work. Involving some sort of bargain or bribe might persuade more than a pep talk, which would be like suicide when we are talking about Aurangzeb. I'm not saying that talking straight to him is bad though, I'm really saying that writing a note could get him more persuaded. This being something that could please Aurangzeb, but as long as he likes it it could work.
I have to disagree Brandon. I do not think that a letter would be enough to persuade Aurangzeb. He, for all we know, would stop at nothing to have all of his empire Muslim. If we wrote a letter, it would be like walking onto a battlefield and asking everyone to hug it out. Sure, it's what you want but it would probably never work.
If I lived while Aurangzeb ruled I probably would have rebelled. If someone were to just happen to set his palace on fire I don't think he would be punishing non Muslims any more. Although I probably would not be let anywhere near the palace.
I would gather people that want to start a rebellion and go to Aurangzeb and try to talk to him about treating people the right way.If that didn't work I would rebel.I would also try to move away
I agree with you but I think I would not even give him the chance to talk it out.
I agree with you David I would talk to him. If he disagreed I would probably take over
To stop his harsh ways would be to rebel. Think about it. No one liked him so you could probably gather a bunch of residents of India and slowly overpower him. The only main reason why this would not work is because people might to scared to fight with you resulting in not enough people on your side.
If I had to say or do something to stop Aurangzeb I would definitely call up a group to discuss distraction. This would be because I would up a large group, where half distract while the other half play out a silent but deadly assassination. This would be more to save the empire, because hardly anyone non-Muslim like him. I would then assign a new emperor automatically in hope of him being good, to probably have the empire last a little longer, yet successful. This being an act that could've changed history in Asia more so, the empire wouldn't have the worst ruler. Since Aurangzeb brought a feeling of pain to non-Muslims, at the least the new emperor could've respect non-Muslims more. Though most of all, this action would've gave the empire better care over everything, rather than an empire who could've cared more, or made things a bit more fair like Aurangzeb.
If we were Muslim's then I don't think we stand a chance. Why? Well Aurangzeb was not the greatest like he would never stood for people that stood up for him and he never cared about any one except for him self.If I had to do or say something I would get every one and tell him something and maybe he will listen to all of us except for just one of use.
To stop Aurangzeb the only thing I would have done was talk about it face...to...face.Why?well because you can make a huge group of non-Muslims and then go talk to Aurangzeb face-to-face with your group.If Aurangzeb doesn't accept your groups changes in the harsh rules the only you have to do is kill him because I'm sure you don't want to deal with harsh rules all your life.
If Aurangzeb had harsh polices I would probably make a rebellion and talk to the ruler about these policies and make an agreement. If he disagrees the rebellion would take over. Then their would be a new ruler.
Even if I was Muslim, I would have done something to stop Aurangzeb. He punished those who did not belong to the Islamic faith. I would have gathered up an army of people that were Muslim and not Muslim to help me fight. Even though it might have cost me my life, I would be helping others.
If I was not a Muslim I would rebel against aurangzeb by getting a team of non-muslim. I would do this because he kept putting a non-muslim special tax on us and trying to convert us into Muslim. This is what I would do if I was under the rule of aurangzeb.
