Muhrdar


Muhrdar
   The bearer of the royal seal was an office that carried much prestige in the Delhi sultanate. A person holding this office would be regarded as enjoying the sultan's trust. Ghazi Malik (later Ghiyas al-Din Tughlaq) occupied this office under 'Ala al-Din Khalji (1296-1316). The office was held by Malik Kafur (not to be confused with Malik Kafur Hazardinari) under Qutb al-Din Mubarak Khalji (1316-1320) and Khusrau Shah (1320).
