Mubarak Shah began his reign well. He repealed the harsh regulations of his father restored the confiscated lands to their owners and abolished his father’s system of price control. A rebellion having broken out in Gujarat, he sent his officer, Ain-ul-Mulk, to suppress the revolt. Gujarat was soon reduced to submission.
March to Deccan: Mubarak himself marched into the Deccan and defeated a King, who had revolted against him.
His Death: Under Mubarak, the administration of Delhi became unstable. The Sultan left the conduct of the State affairs in the hands of Khusro Khan. This favorite was a willing agent of the monarch in all his vices and crimes. At last in 1320, he murdered Mubarak Shah and seized the throne.
Successor of Qutb-ud-din Mubarak Shah: After his death, Khusro Khan assumed the title of Nasir-ud-din Khusro Shah. He abused his ill-gotten power in the most shameless manner. But his order of blood and violence did not last long. Khushro was defeated and overthrew by Ghiyas-ud-din Tughluq, in 1320.
