c) Tonk

According to a recent claim that she and her African slave paramour are buried at Tonk in Rajsthan where her father Iltumish had laid a siege The controversy arose after Sayed Sadique Ali, an Urdu lecturer at the local government post-graduate college claimed that the graves at the site are that of Razia and her trusted slave, Yaqut. He based his findings on the calligraphic Arabic script deciphered by the pattern of stones of irregular shapes affixed around the graves. The stones convey a particular message which, according to him, is: “Shahide Muhabbat Quvvatul-Mulk Jamaluddin Yaqut” around the smaller grave, and on the main grave, situated at a higher level, it reads: “Sultanul Hind Razia.”
