In this article I ‘m going to deal with the mother of the twin children(Hasan and Hussain) of Akbar the great.
I saw certain scanned pages about these twins in the net.When pages are scanned and released in the net, they some times tend to misguide people.Whenever a page is scanned and given in an article please check from which book it has been taken and try to read and clarify the authenticity of the book. The mother’s name of the twin children was given only in one historical book.
Memoirs of the Emperor Jahangueir
Page no 20.
The other historical books of Akbar,Jahangir’s reign and even the entire Mughal era does not give the name of these twin children.But in the 19th century after the Mughal period, many folk tales were written about the Mughals and their families.People were bold enough to write what they like since the Mughals were no more.One such story was Anarkali and Salim. Anarkali was referred during the Mughal Era only by 2 foreign travelers who came to the Mughal court during Jahangir’s period.They had referred Anarkali to be Prince Daniyal’s mother with whom Salim had an affair.This was twisted later and made into a beautiful legendary love story.This had also happened with Jodha Akbar fake love story.
After the fake Jodha Akbar love story,pages are scanned from certain novels and released as a proof for Mariam zamani to be the mother of these twins.No historical books of the entire Mughal Era documents Mariam Zamani to be the mother of these twins. The mother of these twin children were written in certain folk tales to be Mariam Zamani, to just add spice and make their folk tale interesting.The fans were taking these folk tales as a reference though they knew the truth.The fans are doing this purposely since the public was questioning how could a womanizer like Akbar who had multiple wives and children born through different lady love only Mariam Zamani.
So articles were written saying all the kids were born only to Mariam zamani to prove that Akbar had love and sexual relation only with MUZ. This was just distorting history to prove a fake love story to be true.Historical books of Mughal era documents Akbar’s children were born through different mother and MUZ gave birth only to Jahangir.
The following is a page scanned from a non historical book which misguided the public.
This scanned page is taken from a book ,A handbook to Agra and the Taj, Sikandra, Fatehpur-Sikri and the neighbourhood. This is just a guide for tourist.There is no such story that Akbar halted in a cave in any historical book.It is just a imaginary story written to make the book interesting.One should go through the preface of this book,then they will know about the historical importance of this book.
SEE,IT IS CLEARLY INDICATED THAT THIS BOOK IS NOT INTENDED FOR HISTORY BUT JUST TO ASSIST THE TOURIST.CERTAIN ARTICLES ARE GIVING THIS AS A PROOF.This book is full of bazaar gossip and imaginary stories.Only the tourist part of the book is correct.I will give one more evidence from this book to prove it to have a lot of folk tales.
LIKE THIS MANY FOLK TALES ARE GIVEN IN THIS BOOK,WHICH HAS NO HISTORICAL EVIDENCES.I HAD ALSO GIVEN THE LINK TO THIS BOOK.PLEASE READ THE BOOK TO BE MORE CLEAR.I WILL NOW GIVE YOU THE SCANNED PAGES FROM AKBARNAMA ABOUT THE TWINS.
SCANNED PAGES FROM AKBARNAMA
One could see there is no line in Akbarnama that Mariam zamani was the mother of the twins.NO HISTORICAL BOOK DOCUMENTS MARIAM ZAMANI WAS THE MOTHER OF THE TWINS. HOW DO SCANNED PAGES CONFUSE PEOPLE? Moreover in certain articles, pages scanned from novels and from historical books are given.They are in fact given one after the other just to confuse people that both are from historical books.
An example is the following.
SEE IN THE TWO SCANNED PAGES THE TOP WAS FROM SOME NON HISTORICAL BOOK THE SECOND ONE WAS FROM AKBARNAMA. PEOPLE GET CONFUSED THAT BOTH ARE FROM AKBARNAMA. This makes me feel even I can write a book and scan those pages and gives them as an evidence in the net.
When a scanned page is given please check from which book it is scanned and verify the authenticity of the book.Finally we can conclude that there is no historical evidence MUZ was the mother of the twins Hasan and Hussain. In the article I had also given the link of the books from which the pages have been scanned.Please go through it to know the truth.
