Book 2 of “Invaders and Infidels” delves into a tumultuous phase in India’s history following the demise of Qutub-ud-din Aibak in 1210. In the wake of his death, a fragile Muslim kingdom in Delhi witnesses a succession of twelve monarchs amidst rampant palace coups and political assassinations. With the end of Balban’s reign, the Muslim Slave dynasty collapses, making way for the rise of the Afghanistan-based Khaljis, labeled as “low-born.” Against this backdrop, Hindu political power falters, lacking a cohesive leader to challenge the foreign dominion entrenched in Delhi. The book traces the unexpected ascent of Jalal-ud-din Khalji, an unlikely ruler, culminating in the inaugural Islamic incursion of Devagiri, a gateway to southern India. This event holds profound repercussions for India’s subsequent six centuries. The narrative intricately weaves a tapestry of blood-soaked intrigues, Islamic expansion, valiant Hindu resistance, and missed opportunities for cultural revival. The storytelling exudes historical vibrancy, juxtaposing the ebbing and flowing fortunes of Islamic conquests and Hindu responses, while uncovering forgotten facets of socio-political and economic life from that era, resonating even in contemporary times. Crafted in an engaging and brisk style, “Invaders and Infidels: Book 2” offers an enthralling exploration of a pivotal juncture during India’s early Muslim rule.
