  1. Who among the following rulers abolished Jaziya?
    1. Aurangzeb
    2. Balban
    3. Akbar
    4. Jahangir
Correct Option: C

In 1564, Akbar abolished Jizya which was levied from the Hindus. It was a tax on non-Muslims and was seen as a way to encourage poor Hindus to convert to Islam. This was hated by the Hindus because it was a symbol of their inferiority and involved a lot of humiliation.
