WHEN SULTANA RAZIA BEGUM CAME TO LAHORE TO SEE SAID MITHA – AND PERHAPS ENDED UP BEING BURIED IN KASUR ON SOME ACCOUNTS.
The years of reign of Sultana Razia Begum are 1236-1239 AD or 634-637 AH. The Viceroy of Lahore at that time was Malik Aziz Uddin Kabir Khani. A rebellion was taking place and Hazrat Said Mitha was with his sweet and eloquence talk trying to calm things between the two-opposing forces. Sultana Razia Begum was much loved in Lahore, because she was the granddaughter of Qutubuddin Aibak, the Sultan hero of Lahore. In war of succession between Sultan Iltutmish and Sultan Iram Shah; one a son in law and the other a son of Qutbuddin Aibak. Obviously Iltutmish one. But Razia carried the valour of her grandfather.
Kabir Khani was not willing to accept Razia Begum as Sultan and was ready to rebel against her. Said Mitha calmed him, as well as Razia on the subject.There are at least three places in India which are shown to be the burial place of Razia Sultana. There is even as fourth one in the qabarastan of Kasur. And we will talk of it in some other blog.
