Letter to the Ottoman Sultan Selim I about the Christians controlling the coasts of India
Letter to the Ottoman Sultan Selim I -
Malik Ayāz-i Khāṣṣ-i Sulṭānī, Meliqueaz
Date: 23 November 1518 Original Language: Persian
Malik Ayāz’s letter to Sultan Selim I was in response to the latter’s letter to him, which unfortunately is untraceable. Malik Ayāz’s letter, however, can be found in Feridun Bey’s Münṣeat and in the Münṣeat-i Fārsī of ʿAbdullah Efendi. The only extensive discussion of this letter occurs in a recent article by Alam and Subrahmanyam.
