Gabriel, the theory of Mughals being "descendants of Mongols" is no "nationalist rhetoric" but just a universal theory. It would be natural for even an uneducated anti-Mongol person to think so considering that the world Mughal means "Mongol" and they look so similar.

I agree with your basic point though- the cultural heritage was more important than the blood.

For the matter, a large sector of Uzbek society is descended from Mongols according to the book Taliban by Ahmed Rashid.

"Every body here must understand that the Mongols at that time were EXOGAMOUS: there was no problem for them to take foreign women as wifes. So stop the f*ck about blood and lineage, and just consider the cultural heritage of the Mongols: nomadic invaders liked to be called "Mongols/Mughals" because it was a sign of respect for the great Mongol conquerors. Just like the German nations respected the Great Roman Empire. That's just as simple as this!"

Please don't swear.

i think the mughals where afghans/turks with the smallest amount of mongol blood.

They were central asians, with small amounts of blood from a large number of origins.
