Sponsored Alauddin Vs Mongol Invasions Every time the Mongols invaded the region, Alauddin defeated them. Padmavati was his second queen, whom he had married after winning the swayamvara. Unable to get the queen with whom he is now even more obsessed, Khilji captured Ratansen and took him as a prisoner to Delhi. He went to Delhi and took refuge in the court of Alauddin Khilji, the Sultan of Delhi. Hiraman managed to fly away to safety and was sold by a bird dealer to Ratansen, the king of Chittor. To maintain a strong army, and to ensure sufficient revenue inflow; he implemented a series of economic reforms. Overcome by desire, Khilji decided to pay Ratan Singh a visit and said that he would like to see his wife, as he regarded her as a sister.
Much of what we know about them is based on the writings of scholars such as and other Islamic scholars who lived in the time of the Mongols. That was when, two loyal generals of the king - Gora and Badal - devised a plan and sent a message to the Sultan that the queen had agreed to go with him. Amethi and Rae Bareli, areas where Jayasi lived, were part of this.

He followed Islam and was a Sunni Muslim. According to the 16th-century historian Firishta, heads of more than 8,000 Mongols were used to build the Siri Fort commissioned by Alauddin.
In fact, it was the age when the concept of national boundaries was nonexistent; the whole world was governed by the Kingdoms — the boundary governed by each kingdom was itself a state and every King or Sultan had to defend his boundary from the invaders and also at the same time every King or Sultan did love the land he governed. Credit: Wikimedia What is not well-known, however, is that Khilji, for all his faults, saved India from a fate much worse than even his own oppressive rule — that of the murderous Mongols, who tried to invade the Indian subcontinent six times during his reign as the sultan of Delhi, and failed miserably, thanks to his brilliance as a general, the quality, discipline, and bravery of his army and its commanders, and their superior military tactics. All Sufi allegories are based on this. Against this backdrop, one can safely argue that Alauddin Khilji, for all his faults, actually saved the syncretic culture of the Indian subcontinent of that time — which included Hindu, Muslim, Buddhist, and Jain subcultures — from enormous destruction, even if preserving the culture of India may not have been what motivated his resistance to the Mongols.

After raiding Bhilsa a wealthy town in the Paramara kingdom of Malwa in 1293, he surrendered the entire loot to Jalaluddin to win his confidence. Alauddin fixed the prices of the commodities according to their values. He was also suffering from an illness. But most of the modern historian states this story to be fictional.
With their men fighting the enemy, the women of the palace chose to sacrifice their lives over a life of humiliation and ill-treatment at the hands of the Sultan. Southern India territories had to pay heavy annual taxes to Alauddin Khilji. Ratan Singh fired Raghav Chetan who decided to take his revenge. But Kafur was able to make away with lots of wealth of the southern kingdom. As the Russian experience shows, even if the Mongols had settled down in the Indian subcontinent an unlikely proposition, given the hot Indian weather , the consequences for India would probably not have been savoury.
He reigned during the time span between 1296 till 1316. Alaudin Khiliji went to attack Chittor as he has no option left as his deal was rejected. Unknown to the ulterior motives of Khilji, Ratan Singh allowed Padmavati to show her reflection through a mirror to the king. He won against the mongals in the battles of Jalandhar 1298 , Kili 1299 , Amroha 1305 and Ravi 1306. The choice of language as Awadhi instead of Persian is perhaps for greater reach considering his target audience were the common folks and it was their singing of it that spread the word until it reached far and wide. In 1296, he attacked Devgiri and looted the King.
An additional motivation for Alauddin in impoverishing the farmers was that there was a constant threat of rebellion against him. In this endeavor of expansion, he was well supported by his loyal generals, especially Malik Kafur and Khusraw Khan. The film attracted a huge controversy; as led Karni Sena embarked protests against the film. Thus, Alauddin Khilji achieved what no other ruler in the world, east or west, had achieved.
