d by every one who has any conception of the spring of a raging tigress anxious for the welfare of her young. And we may easily surmise the thoughts which the sight aroused in the minds of the Mohammedan nobles in Akbar's train. At that moment many ambitious wishes and designs may have been carried to their grave.[6]

Now Mâhum Anâga, her son and her adherents, hated the grand vizier with a deadly hatred because they perceived that they were being deprived of their former influence in matters of state.

When someone do not know about something, he should not talk about it. What the writer has criticized about the religion Islam is totally erroneous. And this proves that the writer wrote only that particular things which he without any research and analyzing heard upon rumors about this religion. I guess the writer is long dead by now... What a guess! There should be an equal study and research before talking about its Founder. And yes Akber was really like that. Good.
