As for the iconoclasm of the sultanate forces, I think it would have a lot to do with dynastic politics - if you can manage to destroy the religious apparatus that supports (or is supported by) your enemy, you manage to discredit that enemy. But when the same people become your subjects, you have a certain incentive to make them feel safe enough to fight for you, or even to just keep the economy going...

Hence, they could pillage temples in one area, and give grants to temples in another one... Religion is an excuse, maybe a pawn; not necessarily the specific reason for any of it.
True that the 5 sultanates were weak ....but the religious bigotry appears clear in them and any grant given to temple is an anomaly !

Depends on where you are... One interesting thing to do would be a statistical analysis on where the grants and the destructions by different dynasties were - and to whom they granted, and what they destroyed...

It shouldn't be too hard, actually! If we could create that, we'd be able to get to some nice deductions about how dynasties and religions behave...

please look my posts on this issue which are there on previous pages and i used a numerical analysis of their killings as well as made a list of temples destroyed by them.

my figures are accurate for i picked them up from your favourite chronicler Feristah..

the areas controlled by Bahmanis was completely hindu dominated and so your far fetched defense of Islam is completely wrong.

if they cared feelings of subjects for keeping economy going, they would not have killed thousands of brahmins in their own territories.
