They were strong opponents of each other, but they gave strong support to Babur for India invasion. It was a fact that Babur wanted to occupy Timurid dominion for collection of bootyas well as expansion purposes. But without the help and subjugation of Afghan tribes, it was impossible for Babur to conquer Indian Sub-Continent. The main goal of this paper is to see the causes and their relativity behind Babur’s invasion in India, all of the causes are interconnected to each other.
