Is Sultan Alauddin Khilji considered a hero in Afghanistan?
Afghanistans history as a truly sovereign state dates from 1747 when Ahmad shah abdali previously a divisional commander in army of nadir shah of Persia defected with treasure of nadir shah to Kandahar-when nadir shah was assassinated.
till 1747 Afghanistan was not a state in its present form but part divided between Persia,Central Asians and Mughals.Khiljis belonged to Ghaur , a non Pashtun area which is totally neglected area of Afghanistan. He is not really regarded as much a hero as BABA Ahmad Shah Abdali.
Even Mahmud of Ghazna is not regarded as an Afghan hero as he was non Pashtun and of Turkish origin.
Details of Ghazni and Ghauri are explored in my attached books.
