    Alauddin Khalji was a very ambitious person and a warmonger. He liked to call himself ‘The Second ALexander’. He took the title ‘Sikander-i-Sani’. Behind his success of his war strategies was a slave called Malik Kafur. Malik Kafur helped Alauddin Khalji to conquer many states. It’s believed that Malik Kafur murdered him.
