Solution

The correct option is C Alleged conspiracy against the throne by helping a Mughal prince
Jahangir, the Mughal emperor, was intolerant towards the growing popularity of Sikhism. Moreover, Prithi Chand, Naqshbandis, and Chandu Shah conspired against Guru Arjan Dev Ji due to their enmity towards him. Guru Arjan Dev Ji hosted Jahangir’s rebel son Khusrau, who conspired against the throne. Jahangir eventually arrested and executed Guru Arjan Dev Ji.
