The Tribe/Nationality

There are different denotations among the people about the tribe/nationality of kakasahib . Some say
that he was a "syed" . Some say he was a "khattak" , whereas some other say that he was "Seenay" but
most of the people agreed upon that he was a "syed" by caste . Refrences of some authentic books are
given below for the attestation:-

• When the British came to NWFP in 1848 , they compiled the history
and nationality of the people of this area . They titled the descendents
of Kakasahib as "Syed" . (Shajara-e-Nasab , Ziarat Kakasahib ,
Official Gazette of Tehsil/district Nowshera-1870 , page 1-44)

• In a book "Tareekh-e-Peshawer" by A.G Heisting, 1880 , at page 323
, it is mentioned that the descendents of Hazrat Kakasahib are "Syeds"
and their forefathers hailed from Kabul.

• Syed Abdullah Shah Bukhari of Charsadda , in his book "Mujma-ul-
Barakat" , 1285 , at page 4 , mentioned the Shajara-e-Nasab of Hazrat
Kakasahib and proved him as "Syed".

• Maulana Ghulam Ahmad in his book "Manaqib-e-Kakasahib" 1908 , at page
14 mentioned the Shajara-e-Nasab of Hazrat Kakasahib.

• Shamsul Ulema Maulana Syed Mir Ahmed Shah Rizwani in his book
"Tuhfat-ul-Awlia" , 1321 , at page 30 mentioned that Kakkasahib was a
"Syed".

• Misconceptions About Nationality:- The misconception about the nationality
of Kakasahib is because of his hailing from the land of Khattaks but the fact
is that the forefathers of Kakasahib were belonging to Arab . They left their
homeland and traveled across Iraq , Iran , Turkistan (Bukhara) , and
Afghanistan until they reached the province of Balochistan and NWFP of
Pakistan . Ghalib Gul Baba , the grand father of Kakasahib got settled in the
area of khattaks , therfore , his offspring inhabited the same area but this
does not mean that he belongs to a khattak tribe . For example Syed Jamal-
ud-din Afghani , was a "Syed" by caste but inhabited Afghanistan for which
he was called "Afghani".
