Gregory Sicard Professor Banerjee October 6, 2008 The Moghul Empire of India This source speaks about Zahiruddon Mohammed Babur and being poisoned to death. Babur had four cooks who supervised his food before he ate it. The mother of Ibrahim attempted to poison Babur so she ordered for the poison to be put on the food. Babur ate the food and became sick. Babur never got sick and became suspicious that his food was contaminated. Babur threw up and fed a dog his vomit; the dog ate it and became sick as well. The reason why the dog was fed the vomit was to see if the food was contaminated which it was, because the dog’s belly became bloated leaving the dog motionless. Babur then appreciated life because he did not die from the poison. After revealing this he wanted to stop drinking and let his beard grow. In the Koran the beard was grown when a vow was taken, the beard can be shaven once the vow was fulfilled. In regards to the vow being taken his friend Asas proceeded to do so as well, and they intended on going on tour to Gwalior to gain exemption for Muslims from paying the tamgha tax. A treatise was set forth and the tax was exempt.
