Mahomed Kasim Shah Ferishta, a Persian historian was born at Astrabad on the borders of Caspian Sea in 1570 AD. He came to Bijapur in 1589 and spent remainder of his life under the immediate protection of Ibrahim Adil Shah II, who commissioned him to write the general history of the Mahomedans in India. Ferishta presented the first draft of his history to Ibrahim Adil Shah in 1606 AD and spent the rest of his life in revising it. In the introduction of his work he gave a summary of the Mahomedan Conquest, and also of the Arab conquest of the Indian Borderlands, Ferishta is reputed as one of the most trustworthy of oriental historians. His work has come to be regarded as a classic and still maintains a high place as an authority. The author, Ferishta is more divested to the feel of massacres of the defenceless Hindus than any other author of his own religious creed. Ferishta has brought more brightness to the general history of the Mahomedans in India. The date of his death is altogether unknown. Briggs supposes that it occurred in 1612 AD making him only forty one years of age. Printed Pages: 1588.
