Jalal al-Din Firuz Shah Khalji


Jalal al-Din Firuz Shah Khalji
(?-1296)
   Originally known as Firuz Khalji, he rose to prominence at the head of a group of freeborn nobles belonging to the Khalji tribe hailing from the lowlands (garmsir) of Ghaur. He served under Prince Muhammad in Multan and held the office of 'ariz under Kaiqubad (1287-1290). In 1290, he rose to the position of sultan with the titie Jalal al-Din Firuz Shah Khalji on the support of nobles, many of them Khaljis, who had brought about the deposition of Kaiqubad. This change was deeply resented by many Turkish nobles and Hindu chiefs loyal to the house of Balban and led first to Malik Chajju's revolt and then to the conspiracy to bring Sidi Maula, an influential dervish of Delhi, to the throne. Many leading men of the old regime involved in these episodes escaped unpunished, which added to the dissatisfaction of the younger Khalji officers with the manner in which Firuz was running the sultanate. Taking advantage of this sit-uation, Firuz's nephew and son-in-law Malik 'Ali Garshasp assassi-nated him at Kara in 1296 and proclaimed himself as the new sul-tan with the title 'Ala al-Din Muhammad Shah Khalji.
