Ramadan Day 27 thought for the day from my new book The History of Jihad: in the 1340s, the Delhi sultan Muhammad ibn Tughlaq, according to a contemporary historian, “led forth his army to ravage Hindostan. He laid the country waste from Kanauj to Dalmau [on the Ganges, in the Rai Baréli District, Oudh], and every person that fell into his hands he slew. Many of the inhabitants fled and took refuge in the jungles, but the Sultan had the jungles surrounded, and every individual that was captured was killed.”
