Akbar the “Great” would treacherously assassinate Hindu nobles by feeding them poisoned Paan. He kept identical medicine & poison pills in his Paan box, to secretly slip poison. One day Akbar mistakenly ate the poison pill instead of medicine & died.
Karma served his last Paan.
This horrific treacherous & cowardly Al-Taqiya was initiated by Akbar in many ways & passed on as a tradition among the Mughals. They would apply snake venom on special robes offered as an honor with friendly letters & assassinate Hindu nobles under the pretension of diplomacy.
