Dear Sultan! The market is facing a huge problem in trading
"My people ...I need to make some important announcement which you all need to abide by... From now on we will be using token currency in copper."
Sultan Muhammad Tughluq was eldest son of Ghiyas -ud -Din -Tughlaq. He had a bizarre character. He was very intelligent and had mastered many subjects. He was also fond of writing, poetry and calligraphy. One day he was sitting in his palace thinking of what to write.
Guards! I have decided to move our capital to Daulatabad
When in suddenly in panic one of his guards came and stated a problem. he was very worried.
You did not follow the orders I gave and for that you will be punished
Until he got the idea of issuing token currency, all was well. When people started making this currency at home and his treasury became empty he had to face difficulty.
Due to fear of attack from Mongols he decided to change his capital from Delhi to Daultabad as he felt that he could have a better control on his empire from there. Thus many people migrated
But as daultabad had no fresh water supply so it could not maintain the new population. The Sultan became angry and blamed his army for not following his plan as told
He had to face a lot of difficulty due to the change of capital. He died in 1351 on his way to Thatta to put down a revolt
