Who are Mughals ?

Mughals of South Asia (Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka) are descended from the various Mongol and other Central Asian immigrants that settled in the region from the early middle ages onwards. All those who claim Mughal ancestry are descendents of various Mongol armies that invaded Iran and South Asia under Genghis Khan, Timur and Babar.

But the term has always had a wider meaning. According to Bernier, a French traveler who visited India during the reign of the Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb:  In medieval period, descendants of various armies that conquered South Asia under Babar were called Mughals. The term was also used for later immigrants from Iran, the Qizilbash community.
