Students of journalism and mass communication at the Kendriya Hindi Sansthan and some activists remembered the contribution of Akbar Tuesday, saying his secular ideas continue to govern India.
At a seminar, the institute's registrar, Chandra Kant Tripathi, said Akbar's experiments in governance and his ideas on coexistence and mutual tolerance were part of a rich legacy he left behind.
Born Oct 14, 1542, Jalaluddin Akbar ruled Mughal India from 1556 until his death in October 1605.
He made Fatehpur Sikri near Agra his capital, shifted it to Lahore and then again ruled from Agra. He died in Fatehpur Sikri and was buried at Sikandra, Agra.
