If you see some of my old questions, you might find that I just can't admit why Krishna should support Pandavas in Mahabharata.

It's a very big dilemma for me, for last 1 month.

So to clarify it, I want to ask it in a different manner.

According to Star Plus and BR Chopra Mahabharat, it is shown that Krishna considered Yuddhisthir betting Draupadi and Arjuna not stopping Yuddhisthir from betting was adharma. According to Krishna, the war was a must for justice (not sure whose justice), punishment to people who did adharma and to establish dharma again.

Let me explain it with an assumption:

So suppose, if Krishna would be on Kaurava side, say Duryodhana's chariot, and Kaurava would win the war, keeping Duryodhana, Dushasana, Bhishma and Drona alive and All 5 Pandavas dead, would it still be called dharma yuddh, would the justice be achieved, would punishment of adharmis considered accomplished and dharma would be established?

PS: I'm pretty sure that I'm just making an assumption, but at the same time I'm pretty sure that the question is not opinion based. I see the assumption fair enough. If anyone here have knowledge about the dharma yuddh, the justice and punishment being talked about and establishment of dharma, this question can be answered easily :)

EDIT: Clearly not a duplicate. Answer to the question which claims to be original of this question, doesn't have points which I need answers for. The answer their clearly doesn't answer what I'm asking.

Many good questions generate some degree of opinion based on expert experience, but answers to this question will tend to be almost entirely based on opinions, rather than facts, references, or specific expertise. If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

    whichever side Krishna is, that side is Dharma. that is the definition of Dharma. Not the other way around, where people without jnana check whether Krishna is on the side of dharma or not. – ram Aug 4 at 0:34

    If you're asking questions purely based on the plot of B.R Chopra and Star Plus Mahabharat, Movies & TV is the right place to ask about TV shows. – Sarvabhouma Aug 4 at 8:18
  • Whatever @Sarvabhouma but this question is not a duplicate. Very bad experience here. – Vikas Aug 4 at 8:52

    "So suppose, if Krishna would be on Kaurava side" - this is a hypothetical question so will lead to opinion-based answers. – sv. Aug 6 at 18:02
