We know of the Egypt based Mamluks giving a timely reply (by Allah's permission) to the Mongol barbarians - particularly in the Battle of Ayn Jalut where 20,000 of them (Mongols) were put to death. But, we do not hear much about the Indian replies to those barbarians. It is worth reminding ourselves what blessing there was in Indian Muslim rulers, when they repulsed successive Mongol incurisons and many times giving them some of their own medicine in tit for tat fashion. Mongol invasions of India - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (The Mongols returned under the leadership of Kebek, who became a khan later in 1306. They crossed the Indus River near Multan and were moving towards the Himalayas, when Ghazi Malik, governor of Punjab, intercepted them. About 50,000 Mongols were made prisoners including one of their generals. Alauddin Khilji put them all to death and sold their wives and children as slaves.) Unquote.
