    1. Ala-ud-din Khilji
    2. Firuz Tughluq
    3. Muhammad Tughluq
    4. Balban
Correct Option: B

Feroz Shah Tughlaq (1351-88) supposedly the 'kindest' of the Delhi sultans was a zealous Muslim bigot who imposed Jizya upon the Brahmins and made it a separate tax. Jizya was levied on Hindus on the ground that it was not mentioned in Sharia.
