Tarikhnama of King Shahabuddin Muhammad Ghori (1143 to 1206 AD).
This  book is a serie of the ancient history of the subcontinent embracing the present countries of Afghanistan,Pakistan,India and Bangladesh.We have  chronickled  the history from the year of 499 B.C,since Cyrus  raided the region with all brutility. Since Alexander  raided the region(327 B.C)with all cruelty. Chandra Gupta Moria ,from South India, Bihar,raided the region(299 B.C) killing the locals and  plundering.  Ashok  raided from Malva,South India(199 B.C)killing hundred of thousands.These raids were followed by Raja Ratbail(879 AD), Raja Anand Pal and Raja Jaipal(1001 AD) to plunder and kill the people  mercilessly.They  have  devastated the area by razing every structure to the ground.Now came the turn of Mngolis like  Alaptagin, Subuktagin. Mahmudtagin,to style themselves as Ghaznavi Sultan, and upto  Sardar Zinji Aghuz( from 962 AD to 1173 AD) and remained  occupant of Ghazni Capital to kill and kill, the Afghans.  It was the year of 1173 AD and the Sipah Salar of Ghori Kingdom namely Shahabuddin Muhammad Ghori,as is recorded , in the history  book, Tabaqat Nasiri of Minhaj Siraj ,that he made 5 thousand Afghans  arose from the slumber of subjugation of foreign rule. They ousted Sirdar Zinji, the last Mongoli Sultan of Ghazni. They liberated Afghanistan. The Pakhtun Jirga elected Shahabuddin Muhammad Ghori as King of Ghazni.    
        But Ghazni was constantly threatened by Khasro  Mangoli  from Lahore and Prithvy Raj  and other Rajas from the lower region of the subcontinent. With his  Pakhtun lashkar(Afghans),King Shahab made  26 succesful expeditions in  thirty years of time period,to establish Muslim Rule from Ghazni to Bengal (1175 to 1206 AD). He was able to defeat hundred of Rulers of large  and small states to give a united country shape to the subcontinent(India).
These expeditions in 26 states are for the first time being recorded in this book with all authentic sources: King Shahab made his first expedition in 1175 AD, in Multan and Oach.Other expeditions were subsequently made: in Peshawar(1179 AD),Lahore,first and final(1181 AD,1186 AD);Sialkot(1185 AD);Bhatinda(1191 AD): Tarain(1192 AD);Sirsuti,Samana,Hansi and Kuhram (1192 AD); Delhi or Qila Prithvi Rai(1193 AD);Mirat(1193 AD);Qanuj,Allahabad,Awdh and Banaris(1194 AD);Bayana and Gwalyar(1196 AD);Badayun(1197 AD);Bihar(1197 AD);Malwa(1199 AD);Kalanjar,first and second(1202 AD and 1203 AD);Bengal(1202 AD) and Koh Jud(1206 AD). The details of each expedition is given in the current book.King Shahab having successfully completed the expeditions,wth his  final  planning of establishing,a united country of the subcontinent.Sonia Wnda Lochnar tells us, in her book(The Picturisque Portrate of Delhi Sultanate) that the city of  Delhi was built in 1199 AD. While  Shahabuddin Muhammad Ghori himself was seated as King at Ghazni. he  had appointed and posted Malik Qutubuddin as Viceroy at Delhi. Our book will show that with the  newly usherred  of an organised system of administration , people saw peace,prosperity and education .They saw the light of  civilization . The basis ofor introducing civilization in the subcontinent was ISLAM. ISLAM is a religion with the first article of faith of oneness  of God ,before Whom stand all humans equal.He is the only Creater of all creations and  He is  their Sustainer. He alone should be worshipped. The name of  one God, ALLAH, and equality of humanbeings  are the gift of ALLAH ,brought throgh a mesage of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).The people of the subcontinent were unaware of the oneness of GOD. They knew  only the man made statues to worship.Shahab has enligtened the sucontinent and its people  with education, civil rights and with ownership of land . King Shahab died in1206 AD. This book will show that after the death of King Shahab,the Pakhtun Jirga gathered at the capital city of Ghazni and made certain decisions:that henceforth Ghazni will cease to be the  capital of the subcontinent;that Delhi was made the capital and its viceroy Malik Qutubuddin Aibak was elected as the new King  at Delhi. The reader can see the Tarikhnamah of King Qutubuddin Aibak in a separate book.
