Malik Kafur was the slave general of Sultan Alauddin Khilji, Malik Kafur was originally a Hindu slave who fell into the hands of the Muslims at Cambay after the conquest of Gujarat. Alauddin’s general Nusrat Khan had paid 1,000 dinars to buy him and that is why Malik Kafur is also known as the “Hazardinari.”
