(1695 AD). The version and depiction of that book having aged more than 300 years, and it is more relevant to concatenate the written- arguments on Geniuses of Kasur and Genesis of Kasur. Some objection may be raised on its authenticity, because it was scribed on Kasur and Kasuri Pathans by a man who himself was a Kasuri Pathan, but however, I have time and again submitted that it is the noly oldest available hand-written book on the subject- mater, hence, it is relevant to be referred. Fortunately I have perused the original book also. The author of Akhbar- al-Awliya said that the the Kasuri Pathans belong to Yakka Tutt, Arughistan. On page 279 onward, it says that it was the outcome of revealation of dreams and thereafter consultation that Khweshgis entered in the military service of King Babur, who was on the verge of bold advancement in connection with his military expedition to Hindustan. King Babur had assured them for proper jobs and financial sharing at the ratio of 1/4th revenue collection of Delhi area, the agreement was executed by affixing special regal seal of the King Babur. In the battlefield of PaniPat (among King Abrahim Lodhi and King Babur in 1526), King Abrahim killed (he used the word Shahadat). On conquering India, King Babur, his son King Humayun and his son King Akber continued with the agreement with Pathans. After the passage of time, one Nazar Bahdur from Kasur met to the the King Shahjahan and told him about that historical agreement.

In the old days according to book Kulasa-al-Tawareikh, it locates in the Sirkar of Dipalpur (old Multan Province) and the joint stream of the Sutlej and Beas spread here over leagues of low-land, after the rains.

Craik and W. L. Cormin (Usually said Griffin, Massy). They said on the page 205 that the ancient city of Kasur, situated some 20 miles to the south of Lahore, was in 1570, by permission of Emperor Akbar settled by a Colony of Pathans, numbering about 3500 souls. Among those came from Kandhar the ancestors of the Memdot, chiefs of the Hassan Zai tribe and till the fall of the Mughal Empire they lived Kasur......  Kasur developed under Mughal (Mogul) Kings.   Kasur is further developed in the era of the Mughal (Mogul) Kings. And finally it is re-shaped as evident from the thesis Kasur Door e Alamgiri Tuk, in the period of Muhammad Shah (Rangeela Badshah).  The Book Tareekh Mohzan e Punjab says that in the era of King Akbar, Kasuri Afghans got promotions and prosperity. In the period of King Shah Jahan, one Kasuri Pathan Qutbudin Khan Son of Nazar Muhammad Khan was elevated to be the Nawab of Kasur. King Alamgir appointed Shadad Khan as the Chief of Kasur. And in the era of King Muhammad Shah Rangeela, a Kasuri Pathan Hussain Khan was the Nawab of Kasur.  According to thesis “Kasur Tareekh K Aeinan Mein” present Kasur was populated in the era of King Akbar; and some Pathans families were settled here, those came from Qandhar and were the Military personnel of the King Akbar the Grand Mughal. Those Pathans built fortresses here for their residence. And these forts are called Kots. Due to those Qilas (Qasar), it is called as Qasur (Kasur). In Arabic plural of Qasar is
    • Geniuses of Kasur by Ahmad Ali Kasuri Advocate 2014 Qasur. The city consisted on 12 castles and each castle was in the name of famous personality (of Kasuri Pathan). During the period of King Akbar, peace, law and order was maintained here in Kasur. And there is not an iota of evidence that here in Kasur, any difference had occurred among Mughals and Pathans in that era.  Whereas afterward Kasuri Pathans were reluctant from Delhi Capital, even Kasuri Nawab Hussain Khan fought against the Governor Lahore. Kasuri Pathan Jully Khan hatched conspiracy and was hostile, thus instead of being loyal to Mughal King, he entered under-hand dealing and sided with Ahmad Shah Abdali of Afghanistan.  Kasuri Pathans resisted against the Sikhs   Thereafter, some of Kasuri Pathans resisted against the Sikhs and sided with Mughal King but latter on many had joined the Sikhs and afterward they had become loyal to the English Rulers of India.  Kasuri Pathans joined the Sikhs and the English.   Many Kasuri-Pathan joined the Sikhs as even Nawab Sahib of Memdot Nawab Jelly Khan Nawab Nasir-ul-Din Khan families of Kasur.  Nawab Nasir Khan, his son Nawab Zuifiqar Khan and thereafter, his son Nawab Muhammad Shahbaz Khan joind the English Rulers. Nawab Muhammad Shahbaz Khan was appointed as Nawab of Kasur. He was the first, only and the last Nawab of Kasur under the English Rulers.  Kasuri were against the Sikh-a-Shahi and the English Imperialism.   On the other hand public of Kasur were struggling to oust out the the Sikh rulers and afterward he English Imperialism from India. Thus worst brutality, devastation and massacred occurred here in Kasur.  Muslim massacred at Qatil Garhi  12 Kots of Kasur   This beautiful city was principally comprised on 12 Palaces (called Kot in the then official language Persian).  The famous modern 12 Kots (Fortress or Sectors) are the principally built in

It was of the mud-made houses and such other dwellings on the northern bank of the River Beas. In this regard, like other historians, the writer ofKasur Door e Alamgiri Tuk depends on the book “Akhbar-al-Awlia” written by Abaidullah Khweshgi in the era of King Alamgir (about 300 years ago).

Let us elaborate their personalities and pursuits:  Nawab Nazam Ul Din Khan Kasuri could save Punjab from the Sikhs Rule   The renowned historian Professor Shujaa ul Din writes that in those days Nazam ul Din Khan Kasuri wanted to occupy the city of Lahore, so that the Punjab to be saved from the Sikhs. And at that time Nazam Ul Din Khan was the only Muslim personality who could caused the renaissance of Islamic culture there and had he successful, there would be a sure shot establishment of an Islamic province ‘west Pakistan’ in 1799 and eventually Ranjeet Singh could never be successful to become ruler of Lahore. And never found an opportunity to play with the fate of Muslims. But unfortunately some Muslims themselves caused saboteurs the plans.  Raja Ranjeet Singh became ruler with the help of important Muslims   Ranjeet Singh got services of 2 influential Muslims and sent Qazi Khan and Qazi Abdul Rehman Ram Nagri on a secret mission to Lahore. They met some influential people named:  Mian Jan Muhammad  Mian Muhammad Ashiq  Mehr Mohkam Din
    • Geniuses of Kasur by Ahmad Ali Kasuri Advocate 2014  Abid Khan Attari  Muhammad Azeem  Hafiz Muhammad Baghbaan Puri  Mehr Shadi Katarbund  Ahmad Khan Binder  Muhammad Bakir  Muhammad Tahir  Molvi Muhammad Saleem  Mufti Mokarum  Those people prepared a requisition under the conspiracy of the above two Qazi and got signature of notables citizens and formally requested to Ranjeet Singh to occupy the city (Lahore). They also pledged to be faithful to Ranjeet Singh forever. (Tareikh e Punjab page 134)  The renowned writer Ray Kanhaya Lal also confirmed the above statement as he wrote that the Muslims of Lahore themselves offered to Ranjeet Singh to occupy the city and an Arian wealthy man Mehr Mohkam Din of Nawa Kot had opened the Lohari Gate and caused the entrance of Ranjeet Singh Army into the city. For these services he was awarded with the title of Baba by Ranjeet Singh.  Non Acceptance of the Offer of Nazam Din Kasuri   Referred to the Book Tareikh e Punjab by Butty Shah and according to Tareekh e Punjab written by Ayub Khan, King Zaman Shah launched military campaign against Sikhs of Punjab in 1797 AD. When those Bangles Sardars heard the name of Zaman Shah, they ran away from Lahore and Kasur.  Nawab Nazam-ud-Din, Kasur and King Zaman of Afghanistan  Nazam Din Kasuri occupied Kasur in 1796 AD. When he came to know that King Zaman Shah occupies Lahore, he offered that if Zaman Shah would appoint him in the area, he would be able to crushed those wicked Sikhs from whole of the Punjab within one year and also assured to give fifty million of Rupees Per year to King Zaman Shah as revenue tribute as well as to be remain faithful to
    • Geniuses of Kasur by Ahmad Ali Kasuri Advocate 2014 him forever. But unfortunately Zaman Shah was stuck to none providence and eventually did not accede to the offer of Nazam Din Khan.  Meanwhile King Zaman Shah’s brother Mehmood Shah declared rebel in the Afghanistan hence Zaman Shah had to leave Punjab Immediately. On return big cannons of Zaman Shah were fallen into Jhelum River. He was in acute need of those. Ranjeet Singh took the opportunity and manages those cannons to bring out of the river and presented those to Zaman Shah with assurance to be faithful to him. Another account of narration describes that actually cannons were not fallen into Jhelum River. Rather on his way back from Lahore to Kabul King Zaman Shah wanted crossed his heavy artillery over highly flooded Jhelum River. It was given into the notice of King Zaman Shah that Ranjeet Singh could render services for him and will rescue and despatch the cannons after him. Eventually, it was done as promised. King Zaman Shah was very pleased to him and in reward appointed Ranjeet Singh as ruler of Lahore in 1799 AD.  Islamic mission of Nazam Din Kasuri failed.   Thus the Islamic mission and the plans of Nazam Din Kasuri were failed. If Nazam Din and his brother Qutub Ud Din who had defeated Ranjeet Singh in 1800 A.D and occupied Lahore, were appointed as the chief of Lahore by King Zaman Shah then the whole of Punjab rather Hindustan would become under the Muslims rule till today.  Back Ground of Nazam-ul-Din Khan Kasuri   According to a tradition, as expounded by Tareekh e Punjab written by Ayub Khan, in the period of King Akbar, some 3500 Afghans came from Qandhar to Kasur and settled here with the special permission of the King.

According to Tareekh e Punjab written by Ayub Khan, people of India wanted to be remaining under the Mughal Government. Hardly there would be an example that after centuries of rule as of the Mughal/ Moguls in Hindustan/Sub- Continent, public like to be continued under their Government System and they fight in their favour and against the British Rulers. Why they wanted continuity of Mogul Kingship of Bahadur Shah Zafar, the last Monarch of India, let us study the laudable and exemplary situation of protection of life and property in the whole region under Mughal reign as depicted in an excerpt from Lord Macaulay’s address to the British Parliament on dated 2nd day of February, 1835:"I have travelled across the length and breadth of India and I have not seen one person who is a beggar, who is a thief. Such wealth I have seen in this country, such high moral values, people of such calibre, that I do not think we would ever conquer this country, unless we break the very backbone of this nation, which is her spiritual and cultural heritage, and, therefore, I propose that we replace her
    • Geniuses of Kasur by Ahmad Ali Kasuri Advocate 2014 old and ancient education system, her culture, for if the Indians think that all that is foreign and English is good and greater than their own, they will lose their self-esteem, their native self-culture and they will become what we want them, a truly dominated nation."

According to Tareekh e Punjab written by Ayub Khan, their services were dismissed, privileged retrenched, and Estates (Jagir) were forfeited. Thus, they were constrained to live unemployed and impoverished one.  Kasuris were against the British Rule   The British had deprived Nawab Jamal- Ud-Din Khan Kasuri Hassan Zai from his estate Mamdot and after forfeiting it, annexed it to Ferozpur. According to Tareekh e Punjab written by Ayub Khan, Kasuris were at the peak of hate against the British, on such step. However the British re allotted the said Mamdot estate to Nawab Jalal-Ud-Din Khan.  An important Kasuri figure Muhammad Husain Khan Batikzai, the real uncle of Pir Ibrahim Khan Khweshgis who was key position holder in the court of King Bahadur Shah Zafar: enforced to appear as ocular witness and got record the evidence against the King. He refused; the British went against him and expelled him from the service of the court as well as forfeited his Estate (Jagir).  Kasur and the Independence Movement   Whatever movement for independence launched against the Foreign Rulers, Kasuris had been participating. The thesis Kasur Aik Shahr Aik Rawayat, throws light, that the patriot and liberty lovers Kasuris were wholeheartedly support the freedom and never lent countenance to the English Rulers. In this regard there is an example of a Kasuri Nazam Lohar who fought so bravely theResistance Movement against the English.

    • Geniuses of Kasur by Ahmad Ali Kasuri Advocate 2014 These are some free pages from the detailed book “Geniuses of Kasur” Written by Mr. Ahmad Ali Kasuri Advocate  Kasuris Role in Indo- Pak War 1965   In 1965 Indo-Pak War: Kasuris provide evidence to be courageous and valiant by standing shoulder to shoulder with their beloved Pakistani soldiers, and maintain the Support to Pakistan Military at that crucial time, that consequent upon the victorious capturing the Indian areas as of Khem Karan. And among others Rank and File of the Loyal Armed Forces of Pakistan, there were Kasuris soldiers and Officers. Kasuris Brigadier Ahsan Rasheed Shami HJ (Hilal-i-Juraat Military) and Captain Ahmad Muneer Shaheed SJ (Sitara-i-Juraat Military) fought in the line of fire, very heroically. Apart from Kasuris, there were Ex. President of Pakistan General Pervez Musharaf then served here as a Captain, whereas Ex. President of Bangla Desh General Zia-ur-Rehman then served here as a Major.  Regarding that war, it is rumour that the Indian Military planned to launch attack on Kasur and while fighting here, to have their morning tea at Kasur and lunch at Gymkhana Lahore. But, however neither tea nor lunch rather in reverse to those enemy plans, Indians own territory was crossed and captured by the daring and dashing Pakistan Military. Indians were
    • Geniuses of Kasur by Ahmad Ali Kasuri Advocate 2014 defeated here worstly. Indian plan to have morning tea at Kasur became factually Indian defeat at their homeland.  Kasuris Brigadier Ahsan Rasheed Shami HJ (Hilal-i-Juraat Military) and Captain Ahmad Muneer Shaheed SJ (Sitara-i- Juraat Military) were elevated on the unique honour of martyrdom in the battlefield, while fighting for their motherland. In commemoration to the martyred of the said war, Pakistan has maintained a Brigadier Shami Monument at Mustafa Abad (on Ferozpur Road near Lulyani Nahar, Kasur). There are 55 martyrs Soldiers and Officers of 1965 War; lying on heavenly rest. Here on every 6th September annual memorial ceremony is held.  Kasuris Role in Indo- Pak War 1971   In 1971 Indo-Pak War: Kasur again corroborative to be the strong hold of Pakistan Defence. This time on Indo-Pak border at Hussaini Wala Sector Ganda Singh wala: there was one of the tough fights of the Military History. Whereas the enemies were on the higher position of about 25 feet and the brave Pakistani Armed Forces, responded the ultimatum of Indians, they physically jumped from lower plain to the challenging top, facing the shower of bullets in the inimical parameter and survive and rise from the ashes as victorious sphinx.  Indian claimed this sector to be the “Proud if Indian Defence”.

In 1990, on the request of the author, Hawaldar Muhammad Shaffi SJ joined the Pak Watan Council PWC, for human and social development.  Kasuris proved to be bold in the wars of 1965 and 1971  The thesis “Kasur Tareekh K Aeinan Mein” says that Kasuris are patriot, fearless and brave. Impartial assessment indo- Pak wars of 1965 and 1971 reflects that Indian armed forces had inflected brutality by full throttle shelling and air strikes here even on the civil areas of Kasur. And it was more than any other part f Pakistan.But Kasuris remained courageous. They had not only defended themselves rather staunchly supported the brave armed forces of Pakistan, who were at war. Kasuris remained available in their homes. They even help in continuance of supplies to loyal Pakistani soldiers. In 1965 Pakistani troops got victory over the Indian Khem Karn Sectors. Whereas, in 1971 our loyal Pakistani armed forces get victory over Qaisar Hind fort at Feroze Pur sector.  During those Indo-Pak wars, our singers, players and artists played very vital role by taking part in Jihad through their artistic talent and faculties.

The civil areas and population had under gone very heavy bomb shelling. Kasuris were courageous and their high moral also encouraged their Pak Armed Forces here. And thus Kasur sectors proved successful during both the wars for defence of Pakistan.  The thesis Kasur Aik Shahr Aik Rawayat, throws light on the contribution of Kasuri Soldiers and Officers of Pak Armed Forces in the War of 1965 and writes that a Kasuri Lieutenant (promoted to Captain) Sheikh Ahmad Muneer Shaheed (of Shami Family) had embraced Martyrdom at Khem Karan sector Kasur  Whereas in the war of 1971, according to the thesis Kasur Aik Shahr Aik Rawayat, Kasuris again shown their bravery at battlefields.
