Episode 14: The Delhi Sultanate


Another BP Podcast is up. You can listen on LibsynAppleSpotify, and Stitcher (and a variety of other platforms). Probably the easiest way to keep up the podcast since we don’t have a regular schedule is to subscribe to one of the links above!

In this episode of the history podcast, Omar and Jay discuss the period of Delhi Sultanate with Jay and Gaurav. We go over all the major dynasties and also discuss the religious, economic aspects of this time.

As Omar Ali puts it, the legacy of Delhi Sultanate is the legacy of Islam in the subcontinent.

i feel so angry when communists and muslims say islam had nothing to do with muslim rulers like delhi sultante etc. it is like rubbing salt to hindu wounds. if the face of islam in todays world is this, it is hard to imagine what our ancestors went through those times. muslims must apologize for horrible crimmes..i heard in one show on barkha dutt show, gauhara raza was saying that we all are invaders, hindu muslims etc..what kind of logic is this ? doesnot that deamean the huge civilization which exploded from afghanistan to indonesia ? if aryans were so brutal as turks why there is no turkish dna , but all have steppe dna
