The Hindu Equilibrium

Muslim India dates from the establishment of the first Turkish sultanate in AD 1206 in northern India, ending with the decline of the Moghul empire after the death of Aurangzeb in 1707. This chapter is divided into three parts, covering the polity, society, and economy under Muslim India. It argues that Islam failed to alter the underlying parameters of the economy, society, and polity established in ancient India. Although there were some changes in institutions, these for the most part reinforced the conditions yielding the so-called “Hindu equilibrium” on the subcontinent.
