Like shoes, Muslims believe in purchasing and selling slaves in pairs. Altmash was paired with a Turk called Aibak. Mohammed Ghori, the lecher, offered 'a thousand dinars in refined gold' for each. But Jamaluddin Chast Kaba wanted more. He held on to his slave-beauty.
Enraged by the exorbitant price demanded, Ghori announced that no one must purchase that boy Altmash. And who would go against Ghori's wishes? A disappointed and angry Jamaluddin had to carry his stock-in-trade back home. Grooming Altmash for three more years, Jamaluddin put a little more handsome Altmash with a little more raw flesh on him, for clearance sale, at Ghazni. But Ghori's prohibitory order was still in force and no one dared purchase the boy, although there were many a pederasts who cast longing looks at him.
Jamaluddin peddled from door to door to sell Altmash. But none of the lechers had the courage to antagonize Ghori and the merchandise remained unsold. At this juncture came Kutubuddin. He had brought enough loot from India to enable him to buy any number of pretty boys and women for his stalls for boys and the harem. Enamored with Altmash's looks he sought Ghori's permission to buy the boy. Ghori was indebted to Kutubuddin on account of his operations in India. He dared not refuse Kutubuddin's request.
In order not to lose face in Ghazni, Ghori ordered Kutubuddin to take all those slaves and women he wanted to buy, all the way to a slave market in Delhi. There he could complete the transaction behind the back of Ghazniites.
Eventually, Altmash was sold in Delhi, still paired with Aibak. Kutubuddin, himself an Aibak, paid a hundred thousand chitals for the two handsome slaves.
The Tabakat-i-Nasiri tells us, "Kutubuddin called him his son and kept him near his person." Obviously, Kutubuddin must have kept Altmash closest to his person. It was not for nothing that he paid fifty thousand chitals for Altmash alone. Muslim tyrants always paid high prices for lust.
