jalaluddin episode 16
Sultan Jalaluddin’s brother Qutbuddin and Aq Sultan were also following Jalaluddin towards Khorasan.
On the way, they were informed that a large Mongol army was following them Hearing this, the princes quickened their pace. The Mongol army surrounded the princes and their soldiers near the village of Ustava.
The princes fought fiercely against the Mongols The Mongols held out for a while in the contest But this unexpected fierce competition forced them to flee The Mongols fled the battlefield.
After this fierce battle, the princes and their soldiers were tired and became thieves. So they pitched their tents there for rest, they thought That there are no more Mongol soldiers in the area
So there is no danger now But unfortunately it was their misunderstanding The defeated Mongols returned to the same place with a large number of soldiers from their army
Where the prince and his soldiers were present. The Mongols attacked the princes secretly. Princes also pounced on the enemy like wounded lions And continued to wield the sword as long as I was alive.
Finally the Mongols martyred all the soldiers including the princes. The Mongols cut off the heads of Qutbuddin Az Lagh Shah and Aq Sultan and hung them on spears.
When Jalaluddin received the news of the martyrdom of Qutbuddin and Aq Sultan Jalal-ud-Din was greatly shocked. Before this, Ruk-ud-Din had also been martyred by the Mongols.
Now only his half-brother Ghiyasuddin was left which was surrounded in the fort of Iran. In these circumstances, the simultaneous martyrdom of these two princes was definitely a big accident.
After that, Jalaluddin took the power of Khwarazm Shah in his hands. Jalal-ud-Din announced Jihad fi Sabilullah in the country to fight the Mongols.
The news of Jalaluddin’s Jihad preparations was creating excitement among the people. On the other hand, a large army of Mongols was constantly searching for Jalaluddin.
