It was the end of the Mughal Empire. From Aurangzeb to the Last emperor, there are many important events like the foreign attacks of Nadir Shah and Ahmed Shah Abdali. The weakening empire made the mistake to give important posts to Syed Brothers who chose the indolent Mughals to become emperors, and ordered soldiers to kill the wise ones. It was just because to attain their own interests.
