Dr. K. S. Lal describes the multifarious activities of Khusrau: “The interest and activities of Khusrau were multifarious. Although he cannot be accepted as a good historian like barani, yet whatever he wrote, he did it with honesty and truth. Hence his historical and literacy works are regarded as the most significant source material for the history of pre-Mughal Period.”
