A. D. 1290 a change came over the Sultanate of Delhi. So far it was the military camp of
foreign Turks, from where they carried fire and sword to all parts of the country. But
conversion and kidnapping of women had brought into existence an Indian party among the
supporters of the Sultanate. This party, headed by the Khiljis under Jalal-ud-din,
overthrew the foreign Turks and captured the Sultanate.
In A.D. 1292 Alla-ud-din,1 a nephew of JaIal-ud-din,2 invaded Malwa, captured the
town of Bhilsa, plundered the country-side and took a large booty to Delhi.
