With the passing away of Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb in 1707 and the culmination of the might of the Mughal Empire, the Muslims of South Asia faced serious threats to their existence. There was infighting between Mughal princes for the throne, Aurangzeb had spent much of the treasury fighting the Marathas in the South, to no avail; and the Sikhs had risen in Punjab to pose a serious threat to Mughal rule.

Various disputes ensued, until a group of delegates including George Washington, met in 1774 to raise their complaints about the British crown. This “congress” did not go as far as demanding independence, but it condemned the taxation that the colonists had no say in. Less than a year later, on April 19th, the first shots of the American Revolution were fired (History.com N.A, 2009).

The British government placed a multitude of restraints onto the American colonists which limited the colonies ability to develop as a region in the process.
