At the time of Timur invasion, the prime minister of Sultan Nasir- ud- din Tughlaq was Mallu (Malik) Iqbal Khan Lodhi, an Afghan. His older brother, Sarang Khan was governor of Multan and Diaplpur. Large number of Afghans were serving in the army and nobility of Tughlaq empire. On the other side, tribal chiefs of Sarwanis, Niazis, Jalwanis and Lodis were also supporting Emir Timur. So Afghans fought on both side.
Khizr Khan Sayyid, defeated Mallu Iqbal Khan in 1406 AD with the help of an Afghan under his own wing, Bahlul Lodhi. In 1412, Daulat Khan Lodhi , the general of Tughlaqs established himself the ruler of Delhi but was soon dispossessed by Khizr Khan. Sayyids relied heavily on Afghans so at the end they were unable to stop the Afghans from taking throne.

Yes Sayyids were quite dependent upon Afghans. When Mahmud Shah Khilji of Malwa attacked Sayids,it was Bahlol Lodi who came to their aid with 20,000 horsemen and repulsed Malwa army. Then in 1447 Lodi made an attempt but failed. Finally, due to incompetence of last Sayyid ruler Alam Shah, his minister invited Bahlol to come and occupy Delhi Sultanate. Hamid the minister thought that Bahlol would be puppet but he got rid of Hamid once he captured Delhi.

From 1451 to time of Babur, Punjab and Gangetic plains were ruled by Afghans during Lodi dynasty. After Babur's death, Sher Shah again revived their power but finally Akbar destroyed Afghan kingdoms one by one.

While all Muslim rulers oppressed Hindus, the only small consolation was that Afghans did not hate Hindi and allowed Hindi in local administration, Mughals abolished this finally.

Timur had been a vassal of Malik Muiz ad-in Husayn, Malik Iqbal Khans' farther and the Lodi Dynasty held power in Herat until Timur seized the city in 1381. Despite the devastation of the suppressed revolt two years later,Herat remained a prominent city under the Timurids,especially Shah Rukh.During this time several Afghans moved down from the hills and into the territory of the Sultanate of Delhi and from 1451 onwards Afghan troops became prominent in the Sultanate until itwas conquored by Barur in 1526,but were popular again under Sher Khan and Islamshah from 1539-53.
