Although the Ghaznavids were racially a Turkish dynasty, the Sultans started attacs to India immediately after Ghaznavid state was established and they benefited from the human source of this continent as a military force. The important information about this subject is supplied in an article of Prof. C. E. Bosworth with the title of "Ghaznavid Military Organisation" and two books which are about Ghaznavids but there are still observed some dark points in this studies.
