    Persian Historians of the Mughal Period

    A number of ethnic Persian technocrats, bureaucrats, traders, scientists, architects, teachers, poets, artists, theologians and Sufis migrated and settled in different parts of the Indian Subcontinent after coming of Mughals in India. Persian people were among one of the major ethnic groups, who accompanied the ethnic Turko-Mongol ruling elite of the Mughal Empire.

    The new era of Persian literature was started because Mughals were great patrons of literature and laureates. During this period, many texts were translated into Persian from different languages. For Example: The Turki memoirs of Babur were translated into Persian.

    Most of the Persian historian who came to India and wrote their works here under the Indian patronage. There is no such evidence that poets and scholars of Persian language, migrated to India in such large numbers. It is mostly from Babur’s regime or the advent of the Mughal rule that the Persian language in India has acquired its own significance.
