The 5 Biggest Betrayals in History

Mir Jafar’s Evil Deed


In mainstream culture, the name “Jafar” is associated with the Disney movie villain. In India, Pakistan, and Bengali territories, the name is often linked with betrayal. You see, Mir Jafar is one of the most hated men in Middle Eastern history, and it’s all due to how he betrayed his own.

Jafar was a key aide who helped the British establish Imperial rule in India and the surrounding areas. He didn’t just give away troops’ positions, either. He had a major role to play in the erasure of traditional culture in the area. Even today, “Mir Jafar” is synonymous with being a traitor to your people in this region.

Well, it looks like Disney got one thing right…
