He said that when the Persian book Alamgirnama written by Mohammed Kazim, who wrote the official history in the era of Aurangzeb, was translated it was found that it has complete information about the killing and cremation of Dara Shikoh. According to the book, Dara’s body was buried in the basement of Humayun’s tomb, where Akbar’s other sons Daniel and Murad were buried.

Singh said, “He successfully found the grave of Dara Shikoh after four years of rigorous efforts. The grave of Dara Shikoh was found after studying the styles of the tombs of all times. The Alamgirnama book showed the way. I made this report of my own will and the report was praised by all. It is a pleasure to bring this into the light.”

Darashikoh, one of the four sons of the Mughal emperor Shah Jahan, was assassinated in 1659 by his own brother Aurangzeb. Dara Shikoh was not only a scholar of Indian Upanishads and philosophy but was liberal as well. Due to his liberal view, the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh likes the character of Dara Shikoh among the other Mughal rulers. In such a situation, the discovery of Dara Shikoh’s tomb holds extreme importance for the government. (IANS)
