Aurangzeb ruled for almost 49 years from 1658 to 1707, it was the Mughals after Akbar who remained on the throne of the king for so long. After his death, the Mughal Empire was completely shaken, and was slowly ending. Aurangzeb had carried forward the work of his ancestors very well, the way Akbar had built the Mughal empire with hard work and dedication, Aurangzeb gave this kingdom more support and further increased the empire of Mughals in India. But Aurangzeb did not like his subjects much, because of his behavior. Aurangzeb was a fundamentalist, staunch Muslim and hard-hearted king, Akbar promoted Hindu Muslim unity and he also took care of the needs of his Hindu subjects, but Aurangzeb was not like that at all.
Aurangzeb wanted to make India a Muslim country, he committed great atrocities on Hindus and stopped celebrating Hindu festivals completely. Aurangzeb had also levied additional tax on the non-Muslim people, he used to insist on the people of Kashmir to follow the Muslim religion. When Sikh Guru Tegh Bahadur protested against this by standing with the Kashmiri people, Aurangzeb hanged him. Aurangzeb broke many temples and built mosques in its place. Aurangzeb had once again started the practice of sati, in the state of Aurangzeb, eating and drinking meat, drinking and prostitution increased. Hindus were not given any work in the Mughal Empire.

Seeing the growing atrocities of Aurangzeb, the Marathas revolted against Aurangzeb in 1660, followed by the Jats in 1669, Satnami in 1672, Sikhs in 1675 and Rajputs in 1679 against Aurangzeb. In 1686, the British East India Company also revolted against Aurangzeb. Aurangzeb won many of these battles, but the victory does not always remain with one, successive revolts one after another, the Mughal Empire was shaken and its unity began to break. Aurangzeb's severe austerity also did not work. Art, dance and music went away from the empire, neither the elders were respected here, nor the women were respected. The whole empire was subdued under the orthodox talk of Islam.


During the entire reign of Aurangzeb, he was always busy in waging war, because of being a staunch Muslim Hindu king was his biggest enemy. Shivaji was first in his list of enemies. Aurangzeb had also arrested Shivaji, but he had escaped from his captivity. Shivaji, along with his army, fought Aurangzeb and defeated Aurangzeb. In this way, the rule of the Mughals began to end and the Marathas extended their rule.
