Ibrahim Lodi

From Jatland Wiki

Ibrahim Lodi (इब्राहीम लोदी) (r.1517 -1526) became the Sultan of Delhi in 1517 after the death of his father Sikandar Lodi. He was the last ruler of the Lodi Dynasty, reigning for nine years between 1517 until being defeated and killed at the battle of Panipat by Babur's invading army in 1526, giving way to the emergence of the Mughal Empire in India.

Ibrahim Lodi's battles with Rana Sanga

After conquering Malwa, Rana Sangram Singh turned his attention towards north eastern Rajasthan, which was then under the control Khilji's ally, Ibrahim Lodi of Delhi. Rana invaded this province after a rebellion in Delhi had diverted Sultan Lodi's attention. Maharana scored several victories, capturing some key strategic assets in the process, including the fort of Ranthambore. In retaliation, Lodi invaded Sanga's home province of Mewar after having put down the rebellion in Delhi.

Sanga counter attacked, invading enemy territory. He fought ethnic Afghans under Lodi at Khatoli (Gwalior) in 1517-18. Although Sanga lost his left arm and was crippled in one leg, he also won and captured land.

Lodi, reportedly stunned by this aggression (the extent of which was unprecedented in the preceding three centuries), once again moved against Sanga’s region in 1518-19 period, but was humbled at Dholpur. Lodi fought Sanga repeatedly, only to be defeated each time, losing much of his land in present-day Rajasthan, while the boundaries of Sanga's military influence came to extend within striking distance of Agra.[1]

इब्राहीम लोदी और सर्वखाप पंचायत

सिकंदर लोदी की मृत्यु के बाद उसका लड़का इब्राहीम लोदी गद्दी पर बैठा, परन्तु उसके छोटे भाई जलालुद्दीन ने विद्रोह कर दिया. इब्राहीम लोदी ने सर्वखाप पंचायत की सहायता मांगी. सर्वखाप के मल्ल योद्धाओं ने जलालुद्दीन और उसके हजारों सैनिकों को रमाला (बागपत) के जंगलों में घेर लिया और आत्मसमर्पण के लिए मजबूर कर दिया.
