•The commanding Emperor Akbar (1556-1605) had spent many
years moving around with his troops, building new capitals for
himself every where he went.
•He eventually migrated his troops to the Hindu country.
•He allowed them keep their ancestral lands, and offered them
roles in his government along with his armies.
•He still allowed Muslims to practice polygamy.
•For it they paid him back with supplies for his troops, gave him
alliances and paid tribute to him.
