aibak was a resident of Turkey.  His parents were also Turks. Aibak lived in an area where boys were trained and they were forced to sell as a slave. Aibak also became victims of this system and they were also sold to a businessman. The trader sold aibak to Nishapur's Kazi Fakhruddin Abdul Aziz Koufi. Abdul Aziz trained aibak in military and religion, and when Abdul Aziz died, his children sold the aibak again.

This time aibak bought by Muhammad Ghori. Aibak used to work solely in duty and Muhammad Ghori made him the president of his royal stables, after seeing his devotion to this lord.

The first ruler of the Khilji dynasty was named Jalaluddin Khilji.  Jalaluddin Khilji had murdered the last ruler Qaiqabad of the Ghulam dynasty in 1290 and started the Khilji dynasty.

Jalaluddin Khilji ruled for six years. Jalaluddin Khilji was killed by his nephew and son-in-law. Juna Khan, son-in-law of Jalaluddin Khilji later became known as Alauddin Khilji. After the murder of Jalaluddin, his son-in-law Alauddin Khilji became Sultan and became the second ruler of Khilji dynasty.

After the formation of Sultan, Allauddin Khilji attacked many states and took him into his sultanate. Allauddin used to behave cruelly with the people of his kingdom.  And also used to disturb people. Even people called them tanasha.

After Alauddin's death, in 1316, his commander Malik Kafur tried to gain power but he did not get the support of Afghan and Persian emirs.

Tughlaq dynasty (1320 -1414)

The Tughlaq dynasty ruled Delhi from 1320 to 1414. The first ruler of the Tughlaq dynasty was Ghazi Malik. Ghazi Malik was originally Turk-Indian. Because his father was a Turk and his mother was Hindu.

Gazi Malik ruled Delhi for five years and settled in a new town of Tughlaqabad near Delhi.

According to the historian, Gazi Malik was killed by his own son for the throne. Ghazi Malik's son was named Juna Khan and he presented himself as Muhammad bin Tughluq. Juna Khan ruled Delhi for 26 years.

Muhammad bin Tughlaq also made some wrong decisions during his rule, as he ordered to make bronze coins instead of silver coins, this decision proved wrong as people started to make the bronze coin at home and started repaying their debts.

Similarly, Muhammad bin Tughlaq changed his capital city from Delhi to one of the places of Maharashtra, Devgiri, as its new capital. Muhammad Tughlaq changed the name of Devgiri to Daulatabad.

And all the people of Delhi forced to come to the capital Daulatabad. While coming to Delhi from Daulatabad, many people died and Daulatabad was barren land because there was no system of drinking water for so many people, due to this, Tughlaq returned to his capital from Daulatabad to Delhi, but this time no people came back to Delhi.

Muhammad Tughlaq died in 1351 during the capture of those people of Gujarat, who rebelled against the Delhi Sultanate.
