Back of the Book
The earliest Muslim invaders of India were the Arabs. They came into prominence in the 8th
century with the conquest of Sind. But India as a whole, remained free of Muslim influence
till the beginning of the 11th century, when Mahmud of Ghazni invaded India.
Mahmud Ghazni was followed a century and a half later by Muhammad Ghori. His defeat
of Prithviraj Chauhan at the Second Battle of Tarain in 1192 AD brought the whole of
northern India under Muslim rule. The credit for this achievement was due to Muhammad
Ghori's slaves, notably Kutub-ud-din Aibak, the first Slave King to rule over Delhi.
His prophetic words came true. In the three and a half years of her rule, Razia
demonstrated that she was a great monarch. She was wise, just and generous, a benefactor to
her kingdom, a dispenser of justice, the protector of her subjects and the leader of her
armies. This Amar Chitra Katha encapsulates the inspiring tale of Sultana Razia.
