Is this a coin of Razia Sultana? What does the inscriptions on both sides read?

Thanks for your reply, Noor.

I would like to know what is the inscription above and in front of the Horse's head in the reverse side.

Above the head is some Persian script. In front of the head it is "MAA" in Devanagri script followed by some other letters which are out of flan. What exactly do they mean?

Interesting specimen. I think this is not a regular Dehli minted specimen but a contemporary inofficial issue minted somewhere in the western territories.
This due to the coppery color and the arrangement of the text on the Arab text side which does not conform to the known Dehly types.

Above the horseman, to the back of the horseman is "Sri" in Nagari script (off flan). Above the horses head is "Ham" the text continues in front of the horse with "MiRa". So the complete text reads "Sri Hammira", the Indian form of "the Lord Amir".
