Mughal Society

The Indian economy was so prosperous that in the Mughal period, through the creation of a road system and a steady currency, together with the unification of the country. manufactures and farmers grew crops have been sold worldwide. Major shipbuilding companies included (the shipbuilding industry in India was as advanced as European, ships and the Indians sold to European firms), textiles and steel. The Mughals maintained a small fleet, which only carried pilgrims to Mecca, some Arabian horses imported to Surat. Debal in Sindh has been largely autonomous. 

The Mughal also held various fleets Dhow River, carrying soldiers fought along rivers and pirates. Among his admirals were Munnawar Khan and Muhammad Saleh Kamboh. The Mughal also protects the Siddi of Janja. The sailors were famous and often traveled to China and East Africa Swahili Coast, along with some implementation issues of trade Mughal private sector. Cities and towns grew up under the Mongols, however, for the most part, were not political and military centers, manufacturing or commercial centers. 

Only those alumni that goods produced bureaucracy made goods in the cities, most industry was based in rural areas. The Mughal maktabs also built in each province under its authority, where children were taught the Koran and Islamic law (like the fatwa-e-Alamgiri) in indigenous languages, which later became a very strong religious institution in South Asia .

The nobility was a heterogeneous body, and mainly consisted of Rajput aristocrats and foreigners from Muslim countries, people of all castes and nationalities can obtain a title of Emperor. The middle class of wealthy merchants openly consisted of a few wealthy merchants living in coastal cities, most traders pretend to be poor to avoid taxation. 

Most people are poor. The standard of living of the poor is lower or slightly higher standard of living of poor Indians under the British Raj, which benefits the British brought with canals and modern industry were offset by population growth, high taxes, and the collapse of traditional industry in the nineteenth century.
