Objective of Ghori’s invasion of India

Secondly, he had the same gluttony as Mahmud Ghaznavi and wanted to defeat India and make a name for himself in the world and get prestige in the Muslim world. He was a staunch Muslim and was against idolatry. The idol worship of Hindus was not pleasing to him with open eyes. Therefore, due to these reasons, the desire to attack India became very strong in him.
