Baha al-Din, Garshasp


Baha al-Din, Garshasp
(?-1328)
   A nephew of Ghazi Malik (later Sultan Ghiyas al-Din Tughlaq, 1320-1325) who, around 1320, was stationed at Dipalpur in a subordinate position to his uncle. He joined Ghazi Malik's march on Delhi in 1320 to overthrow Khusrau Shah. Muhammad bin Tughlaq (1325-1351) appointed Garshasp to Sagar (south of Gulbarga). His revolt in 1326 was provoked by the sultan's attempt to intensify his authority in the provinces. Pursued by officers loyal to the sultan, Garshasp took refuge in Dorasamudra but was eventually handed over by Ballala III to his pursuers in 1328 for execution.
