Correct Option: C

Aurangzeb disliked music and banned any form of music or dance in his kingdom in 1668. He was a simple man and devout Muslim who led a simple life. Officials were empowered to break musical instruments if anywhere they heard the sound of music. Musicians and dancers who gave up their profession were given allowances by the Emperor.
