the Battles of the Mughal Empire

The Battle of Hoogly (1632) The Muslim Mughal ruler Shah Jahan against the European Christian Portuguese.
Shah Jahan ordered an attack on the city of Hoogly, a fortified Portuguese trading post with cannons, guns, and other instruments of war, on the Northeastern coast of India. the reason the Mughals wanted the Portuguese to lose the control of Hoogly was because the Portuguese profited from half a century of triangular trade between India, China, and Various countries in the Middle East and Southeastern Asia and if the Portuguese would have happen to lost the city, it would decline their influence in the region. Because the Portuguese would convert some peasants of those places to Christianity by force and others through greed and sent them off to Europe in their ships. These improper action of the Christians of Hoogly port remain on the emperor's mind and so he was determined to restore the true religion and eliminate infidelity. Also remove the corruption of these abnominators from the region.



Battle of Plassey (June 23, 1757), victory that led to British control of Bengal and marked the first stage in their conquest of India. In 1756 Siraj-ud-Dawlah, the nawab, or viceroy of Bengal, seized the British Fort William at Calcutta, where subsequently some British prisoners died in a dungeon known as the Black Hole of Calcutta. Robert Clive, British governor of Fort Saint David (now Cuddalore), recaptured the fort in January 1757, and allied himself with Hindu leaders in Bengal who were dissatisfied with the Muslim Siraj-ud-Dawlah. After arranging for the defection of Mir Jafar, one of the nawab's generals, Clive defeated a vastly superior Bengali army on June 23, 1757 at Plassey, a village near Krishnagar, West Bengal. This victory led to British control of Bengal and marked the first stage in their conquest of India. the battle of Buxar (1764), secured British rule over the region.
