The Mughal family's glorious history is filled with stories of love that have endured well and happily. When you look at the famous stories of the love of Shahjahan Mumtaz Mahal, Jehangir Noor Jahan, one of the names associated with it also makes sad stories sad. He belongs to the pomegranate.

The story of Anar Kali is said to have been made in India by a yakin bargainer with his family.
On the way he was killed by bandits and his beautiful daughter Raja Man Singh Hakim was sold to Kabul. Raja Man Singh gifted it to Emperor Akbar. Akbar was impressed by his beauty and gave him the name of Anar Kali and was given the status of a dancer in the court.

In 1599, Akbar's Minister Khas Abul Fazl expressed doubts about Akbar's love affair with Anar Kale and Prince Saleem.

On one occasion at the Shish Palace where Emperor Akbar had placed the royal court, Akbar found Anar Kali in the mirror with a fondness towards Salem and his doubts turned into conviction. The Netajata Emperor gave the pomegranate alive in the wall. Before the death of Prince Salem's girlfriend, the prince was sent out of the capital on an expedition so that no conflict could arise.

The love story of Anar Kali and Prince Saleem (Jahangir) has turned into an endless debate. The opinions of historians and the public are quite different. Thanks to these diverse ideas, it is difficult to decide whether the event was factual or merely fictional.
Was it time to arrest Prince Saleem in his heart of love in the heart of Anwar Fort so that he could become the queen of India by joining the future throne? Or did the pomegranate also exist?
 All of this is controversial.
Noor Ahmed Chishti writes in his book Investigation in Chishti that there is no truth in the love story of Anar Kali and Prince Saleem. According to him, Emperor Akbar addressed Nadara Begum or Sharif al-Nisa because of its beauty, Anar Kali. Because of her glamorous beauty, other Begumts suffered from envy and lost their lives.

According to another tradition, when Akbar was on the campaign of Deccan, this Hussain woman succumbed to her illness.
SM Latif writes in his book History of Lahore and its Archeology that on one occasion Emperor Akbar saw him and Prince Saleem's smiles in the mirror and on this occasion he was lifted alive in the wall.

The first mention of the pomegranate is found by William Finch, an Englishman who came to Lahore in 1611 in connection with the business.
Faqir Syed Ijazuddin mentions William Finch in his book "Lahore" that Finch saw a tomb in Lahore about which he was told that it was a woman who was buried alive in the wall by Akbar's orders.
In another, Terry, in his journal Terry Journal, wrote in 1655 that Emperor Akbar had threatened to oust Prince Salem from the throne and that the Akbar's approved sight was pomegranate.

Despite all of this, the main character of the story, Prince Saleem, remains silent in this regard. He bravely mentions his other numerous engagements and interests in Jahangiri, but the incident of the pomegranate is not mentioned anywhere.
Most historians believe that the story of Anar Kali is merely a myth, given by Imtiaz Ali Taj's play Annar Kali.

Some historians believe that the place known as the tomb of Anar Kali (present Punjab Civil Secretariat Lahore) is actually the tomb of Sahib Jamal, a queen of Jahangir. This tomb is called the tomb of the pomegranate for the reason that there was a pomegranate garden in the vicinity. At the tomb of this tomb is a Persian poem written by Jahangir himself.

This poem means that I wish I could see the face of my beloved again. If that were the case, I would thank God for the Day of Judgment. The following is written by Saleem Akbar, who was the real name of Jahangir.
Anar Kali was the unfortunate woman whose true position could not be determined despite her second reputation. He could not find the comfort of love in life, and even after he died, his existence was lost in the confusion of truth and fiction.
