Did mughal soldiers know what they were doing?

Recommended Posts

or were they just brainwashed?

\I was watching a movie where a guy killed a soldier on the opposing army as he was surrendering, and I though that was justice done until I thought that the guy was probably just brainwashed by his ruler to attack them. It then got me thinking of our history, and how we fought the Mughals. Were their soldiers inherently evil, or just brainwashed? Would they do the things they did if they knew the real story? Cuz im guessing they wouldn;t had they known of the Guru's greatness. OR was it more like the police in 1984 where they knew what they were doing, where they knew Sikhs were innocent but they didn't stop and thus had to be killed?

Also, any case where we killedd an unarmed soldier? I tihnk i may recall a story where someone was stoned to death by us? I might be incredibly wrong.

Against our rules of war to do that.

Dharam Yudh is a war fought in the defence of righteousness, similar to the concept of a Just War.

The conditions of Dharam Yudh are:

  • the war must be the last resort - all other ways of resolving the conflict must be tried first
  • the motive must not be revenge or anger
  • the army must not include mercenaries
  • the army must be disciplined
  • only the minimum force needed for success should be used
  • civilians must not be harmed
  • there must be no looting, territory must not be taken, property taken must be returned

Sikhs also believe:

  • all treaties and ceasefires must be honoured
  • no places of worship (of any faith) should be damaged
  • soldiers who surrender should not be harmed

The mughals may have been brainwashed by their faith. They were probably told that the kaafirs deserve to die. Some may have been fed lies. Anyone got any sources from the mughals?
