Kasur City




  • History :


Historically,  Kasur is one of the oldest cities of Pakistan. In ancient times, it was just a small settlement with Katcha houses on the northern bank of the older river Beas. According to an estimate Kasur was a big village in 1 AD.

In 553 Ad this was occupied by Khaweshgan. In 1020 AD, Kasur was included in the territory of Lahore, which was the capital of the state under Raja Jaipal. 

When Emperor Baber captured the whole of India in 1526AD, he gave this city to the Afghans as a token of their service towards his victory. 

During the reign of Shah Jahan and Aurangzeb, Kasur was glorified and every rich man constructed his own palace in Kasur. 

In 1830 AD Maharaja Ranjeet Singh captured Kasur and it was under Sikh role by the year 1847 when the British took over control of India.

History of the area is often endorsed as being very ancient by quoting the mud filled town near it (1/2 km away from District Headquarters), which was called Rohay Wal.A tomb of a Muslim mystic Baba Kamal Chishti and some other graves are still found at the top of these teelas, who was of mughal era and disciple of Baba Fareed-ud-Din Ganj Shakar and Nizam-ud-Din Aulia. 
Kasur,The City of Saints

Many of these teelas has been dug up and has been leveled to ground for encroachments and roads etc. 
It is said that Rohay Wal (the lost town) was once the main city and the current city was a suburb of that. The city is built upon the high bank which marks the termination of the Majha and looks down upon the lowlands of the Satluj hither. 

It is a place of great antiquity and is identified by the historians as one of the place visited by the Chinese pilgrim, Howang Tsang in the 7th century BC but it does no appear in history until late in the Muslim period when it was established as a Pashtun colony near the northern/western bank of the Sutlej. These migrants entered the town either in the reign of Babar or in that of his grandson Akbar and founded a considerable principality with territory on both sides of the Satluj.

When the Sikhs rose to power, they met great opposition from the Pashtuns of Kasur. 

The chiefs of the Bhangi confederacy stormed the town in the 1763 and again in 1770 and although they succeeded in holding the entire principality for a while, the Pashtun leaders re-established their independence in 1794 and resisted many subsequent attacks. 

The town of Kasur was incorporated in the Kingdom of Lahore by Ranjit Singh in 1807 and had been a municipality since 1885. There is said to be seven tribes of Pathan who settled here sometimes during the reign of Moghal king Baber but more probably in 1560, during the times of his grandson Akbar. At that time the town is said to have a population of about 3,500. 

Among the Pathans who settled here were certain Hasanzais, whose descendents became the chiefs of the town and founded a considerable principality, including territory on both banks of the Sutlej River.

When the Sikhs rose to power, they experienced great resistance from Kasur. In 1763 and again in 1790, a large number of Pathans embraced martyrdom while defending their territory. 

In 1794, two Pathan brothers, Nizam ud Din and Kutab ud Din expelled the Sikhs from Kasur and reestablished the Pathan rule until 1807 when at last, Kutab ud Din was forced to give way to Ranjit Singh and retire to his territory at Mamdot, beyond the Sutlej River. 

The town of Kasur was then incorporated into the dominion of Ranjit Singh. After the Sikhs, this area was taken over by the British. In 1867, the British constituted the Municipality of Kasur
It remained a tehsil of Lahore District with an Extra Assistant Commissioner in-charge of the sub division until 1st July 1976 when it was made a district. Initially, the district comprised two sub divisions namely Kasur and Chunian. Later on in 1992, the Government of Punjab created a third sub division called Pattoki. While in 2008 another town Kot Radha Kishan was notified as fourth tehsil (sub-division) of the district.

  • History of Name :
      Historically the city of Kasur was named by ancient Aryan tribe of Kambojas who migrated from Mittani and Kussara and belonged to Ancient King Pithana of Mesopotamian Kussara. 
Tomb of Hazrat Bulleh Shah

This fact is also endorsed by renowned folk Baba Bulay Shah that all Pathans of Kasur would become weavers very soon. 
The town of Khudian was built by ancient Aryan Iranian Kambojas of Kasur who claim descent from Saman Khuda. 
A village Khoda near Khudian is also inhabited by Kambojah Clan. The same clan Kambojas also claims to be offsprings of Kumbakarna and Rama. 

Ancient town of Rajowal of Kambojas is also related to Kambojas of Khemkaran. According to a traditional belief, Kasur was founded by Prince Kusha, the son of Lord Rama, while Lahore, called Lavapuri in ancient times, was founded by his brother Prince Lava. Kasur had been allotted by the Mughals to Pashtuns or Afghans of Kabul and still contains a colony of Pashtuns. 
However the site was occupied by a Rajput town long before the period of Muslim rule. According to some historians, the name Kasur is derived from Kashawar, the same way Lahore is said to be taken from Lahawar. Kush, the son of Ram Chander or Rama, is said to have founded Kasur like his brother Loh or Lav is said to have founded Lahore. 
Ferozpur Road Kasur

However, some historians opine that Kasur is a Persian word and a plural of "Kasar" or "Qasar" (meaning palace), which the name was given during the times Kasur was a remarkable colony of Pathans, perhaps the most remarkable on this side of Indus.
      In 1867, the British constituted the Municipality of Kasur. It remained a tehsil of Lahore District with an Extra Assistant Commissioner in-charge of the sub division until 1st July 1976 when it was made a district. Initially, the district comprised of two sub divisions namely Kasur and Chunian. Later on in 1992, the Government of Punjab created a third sub division called Pattoki.

     According to some historians, its name is corrupted from of Kashawar, in the same way as Lahore is said to be a shortened from of Lahawar. Tradition refers the foundation of the town to Kush, a Brother of Loh or Lav, son of Rama, who is said to have founded Lahore. 

Some historians opine that Kasur is the Persian word and is plural from of "Kasr" or "Qasr" (Kot). However this may be, Kasur does not appear in history until far on in the Muhammad period.

The colony of Pathans was located at some time during the reign of Baber, but more probably in 1560BC, during the reign of his grandson Akbar-e- Azam. 

At that time the town is said to have numbered 3500 souls. Among the Pathans who settled here were certain Hasanzais, whose descendents became the chiefs of the town and founded a considerable principality, including territory on both banks of the Sutluj.

    When the Sikhs rose to power, they experienced great resistance from the brave Sikhs of Kasur, in 1763 and again in 1770. However, later, they were able to subdue the territory. Large numbers of Pathans embraced martyrdom on these occasions. 

In 1794, two Pathan brothers, Nizam ud Din and Kutab ud Din again expelled the Sikhs from Kasur and re-established the Pathan rule, held their own against the repeated attacks of Sikhs until 1807, when at last Kutab ud Din was forced to give way before Ranjit Singh and retire to his territory at Mamdot beyond Sutluj. The town of Kasur was then incorporated in the dominion f Ranjit Singh. After the Sikhs the area was taken over by British.

      In 1867 the Kasur
 Municipality was constituted. At that time, Kasur was given the status of Sub-division and included in Lahore Civil Division.
The Raiwind-Ganda Singhwala Railway line was laid in 1883 whereas the Kasur-Lodhran Railway line was completed in 1910, thereby connecting the town with the rail network. 
During this period, Kasur served as an important commercial as well as industrial center of the area. After independence in 1947, industrial and commercial activities were re-established and Kasur contributed more and more towards the national economy. Kasur remained a Tehsil of Lahore District, during the times of the British, and Extra Assistant Commissioner used to be the in charge of the Sub-Division. In 1976, Kasur was given the status of District Headquarters and subsequently a number of local offices were established.

      Hazrat Bulleh Shah (R.A) بلہے شاہ, ਬੁੱਲ੍ਹੇ ਸ਼ਾਹ - An Artistic Depiction of Hazrat Bulleh Shah (R.A)


      www.MyKasurCity.blogspot.com
      Syed Bulleh Shah
      Bulleh Shah (1680-1757) is the foremost Sufi poet of Punjab and holds manifold importance. In him the pantheism of Punjabi sufism reached its apex. He was born in a Sayyed family in a village near Kasur. 
      He became a fakir of Qadri order as a disciple of Shah Inayat, an Arain peasant and Sufi master. Major part of Bulleh Shah’s verse is in the Kafi form like Shah Hussain, but he has written in some other forms too, like bara-maha and si-harfi.
      Love for Bulleh Shah is the essence of God. He affirms that it is a fire which is lit in the heart of man.
       It is yearning for return to God and is generally at the moment the individual self gets separated from Him.
      Bulleh Shah is acutely conscious of the differences and disputes between Hindus and Muslims and decries the persistence of both parties in their respective positions. His verses are very popular amoung the Punjabis. The reason evidently is his romatic defiance of the Muslim Sharia and an apparent condemnation of both Hindu and Muslim bigotry and ritual.
      www.MyKasurCity.blogspot.com
      Baba Bulleh Shah was the great humanist, philosopher, rebel, internationalist, teacher and Sufi poet of all times. 

      Baba ji was the disciple of Enayat Shah Lahori, who himself was a great Sufi of his time. Baba ji was born in a noble and aristocratic Saye’ad family but, as a result of Enayat’s teachings, he left the life of nobility and luxury and led quite simple and humble life. 

      Baba ji was a great poet and use to sing his poetry in the streets of his city Kasur.

       He was a keen supporter of poor and at all fronts he opposed oppression and exploitation of public by capitalistic class. Due to his anti-extremist and revolutionary behavior, he was given the ‘Fatwa’ of Kafir (Infidel) by religious authorities. Several times, he was bitten by the extremists but ‘he never bowed his neck’. 
      Tomb Hazrat Bulleh Shah - Kasur
      When he died he was thrown on the garbage outside the boundary of Kasur because he wasn’t allowed to bury in the Kasur. But as the time passed, with the increase in population Kasur also expanded and thus, at last, Baba ji’s grave got its place in his Kasur. 

      After the death of Baba Bulleh Shah, the Government and Muslim Ulmas used their force strongly to destroy the Kalam (poetry) and reputation of Baba ji. Qawals (Asian classical singers) were strictly prohibited to sing the Kalam of Baba ji publicly. 
      In British India, for about 100 years his Kalam was not allowed to be published. It was after the ‘partition of 1947’ that Baba ji’s Kalam was published for the first time, when some Sikhs and Hindus disclosed some remnants of Baba ji’s Kalam. 

      No doubt, a lot of his verses have been disappeared from the world but still we’ve his many beautiful verses which are famous all over the world and people of all castes and religions love and admire this remarkable poet of history.

      Mela at Tomb Bulleh Shah Kasur
      When he was six months old, his parents relocated to Malakwal. His father later got a job in Pandoke, about 50 miles south-east of Kasur. Bulleh Shah received his early schooling in Pandoke and moved to Kasur for higher education. 

      He also received education from Maulana Mohiyuddin. His spiritual teacher was the Qadiri Sufi Shah Inayat Qadiri, who was a member of the Arain tribe of Lahore.
      Bulleh Shah's time was marked with communal strife between Muslims and Sikhs. 
      But in that age Baba Bulleh Shah was a beacon of hope and peace for the citizens of Punjab. While Bulleh Shah was in Pandoke, Muslims killed a young Sikh man who was riding through their village in retaliation for murder of some Muslims by Sikhs. 
      www.MyKasurCity.blogspot.com
      Mazar Syed Bulleh Shah (Abdullah)

      Baba Bulleh Shah denounced the murder of an innocent Sikh and was censured by the mullas and muftis of Pandoke. 
      Bulleh Shah maintained that violence was not the answer to violence. Bulleh Shah also hailed the ninth Sikh Guru, Guru Tegh Bahadur as a Ghazi, or "religious warrior", which caused controversy among Muslims of that time. 


      Bulleh Shah died in 1757 in Kasur. Tradition has it that Islamic scholars of the time forbade local imams to carry out Bulleh Shah's funeral, considering him an infidel. However, after he was buried outside of the city, his tomb started attracting thousands of pilgrims from the region, and soon the center of Kasur moved to that place.

      Night View bulleh Shah Mosque Kasur

      Today, a large festival (urs) is celebrated at the tomb every year.
      In the 1990s Junoon, a rock band from Pakistan, rendered his poems Bullah Ki Jaana and Aleph (Ilmon Bas Kareen O Yaar). 

      In 2004, Rabbi Shergill turned the abstruse metaphysical poem Bullah Ki Jaana into a rock/fusion song that gained popularity in India and Pakistan.

      The Wadali Bandhu, a Punjabi Sufi group from India, have also released a version of Bullah Ki Jaana in their album Aa Mil Yaar... Call of the Beloved
      www.MyKasurCity.blogspot.com

      Another version was performed by Lakhwinder Wadali and entitled Bullah

      Dama Dam Mast Qalandar, a qawwali composed in honour of Shahbaz Qalandar, has been one of Bulleh Shah's most popular poems and has been frequently rendered by many Indian, Pakistani and Bangladeshi singers including Noor Jehan, Ustad Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, Abida Parveen, Sabri Brothers, Wadali brothers, Reshman, Runa Laila, and Arieb Azhar.


      Poetry :

      Bulleh Shah lived in the same period as the Sindhi Sufi poet Shah Abdul Latif Bhatai (1689–1752). 
      www.MyKasurCity.blogspot.com

      His lifespan also overlapped with the Punjabi poet Waris Shah (1722–1798), of Heer Ranjha fame, and the Sindhi Sufi poet Abdul Wahab (1739–1829), 
      better known by his pen name Sachal Sarmast. Amongst Urdu poets, Bulleh Shah lived 400 miles away from Mir Taqi Mir (1723–1810) of Agra.

      Bulleh Shah practiced the Sufi tradition of Punjabi poetry established by poets like Shah Hussain (1538–1599),Sultan Bahu (1629–1691), and Shah Sharaf (1640–1724).
      www.MyKasurCity.blogspot.com

      The verse form Bulleh Shah primarily employed is called the Kafi, a style of Punjabi, Sindhi and Saraiki poetry used not only by the Sufis of Sindh and Punjab, but also by Sikh gurus.
      Bulleh Shah’s poetry and philosophy questioned the Islamic religious orthodoxy of his day.

      Bulleh Shah’s writings represent him as a humanist, someone providing solutions to the sociological problems of the world around him as he lives through it, describing the turbulence his motherland of Punjab is passing through, while concurrently searching for God. 
      His poetry highlights his mystical spiritual voyage through the four stages of Sufism: Shariat (Path), Tariqat (Observance), Haqiqat (Truth) and Marfat (Union). The simplicity with which Bulleh Shah has been able to address the complex fundamental issues of life and humanity is a large part of his appeal. 

      Thus, many people have put his kafis to music, from humble street-singers to renowned Sufi singers like Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, Pathanay Khan, Abida Parveen, the Waddali Brothers and Sain Zahoor, from the synthesized techno qawwali remixes of UK-based Asian artists to the Pakistani rock band Junoon.
      Whosoever has attained union with the Lord has done so by traveling on this path, and whosoever will attain this union, will do so by becoming a traveler on this path of love. Bulleh Shah's life and writings are replete with subtle secrets of the path. They do riot only strengthen the love of a true lover, but also encourage him to undergo the severest hardships for reaching the spiritual goal. The life and compositions of Bulleh Shah will serve as a lighthouse for times immemorial to true seekers of spiritual realization.
