"We must take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the oppressed. Sometimes we must interfere. . . There is so much injustice and suffering crying out for our attention . . . writers and poets, prisoners in so many lands governed by the left and by the right." Elie Wiesel, Nobel Peace Prize Speech, 1986, Oslo.

Sibling rivalry--sons of Babur--
Exile and death
Humayun resisted the pressure to put his rebellious brother to death,
he was persuaded that something needed to be done about him so he
reluctantly had him blinded. Humayun then sent him off to perform the Hajj to Mecca, where he died in 1557. After his death his daughter was married Akbar, the other children were executed.
