    Reign of Terror: It all started with Aurangzeb!
A 5000-year old Bharatvarsha started to fragment when Aurangzeb assumed the throne of Mughal Dynasty. His era can be called as beginning of communalism in India. With active support of Muslim clerics and his Afghan generals, he went on a deplorable spree of religious persecution. Hindus, Sikhs and other non-Muslims were publicly criticised and executed for even looking into the eyes of any Muslim. In short, the modern anti-minority chauvinism of few fringe saffron elements which we witness today is a gradual product of retribution by majority, in response to Aurangzeb’s policies.
