Bulandshahr District- Uttar Pradesh

Bulandshahr district is named after the city of Bulandshahr whose ancient name was Baran. According to folklore, Baran is named after King Ahibaran of the Tomar dynasty, a branch of the Pandava dynasty. It is also believed that before this Raja Parmal of this Tomar Rajput dynasty built a fort here which was named Banchhati. According to another belief, Varnavat described in Mahabharata is related to this Baran.

This area was under the Chandravanshi rulers of Hastinapur during the Mahabharata period. Later Tomar’s branch of this dynasty ruled in Delhi. Today, two khaps of Tomar dynasty of Rajputs – Janghara and Indoria are found in this district, in which 24 villages are in the area of Gulavathi Secunderabad road, in which Baral, Chhapravat, Pitovas, Bisaich are prominent. The famous retired IAS Surya Pratap Singh belongs to Pitovas only. Apart from this, 5 villages of Tomro are near Khurja, in which Dharpa Chauharpur is the chief.

After this, Dod Rajput kings ruled here in the early medieval period. 16 generations of Dod Rajputs ruled here under whom the area from present day Meerut to Aligarh was there. The credit for the establishment of cities like Meerut, Hapur, Kol etc. is given to the kings of this dynasty.

During the attack of Muhammad Ghori, there was a shake in Baran’s Uparkot fort, after which not only the rule of this dynasty came to an end, but due to the immense loss of life in the shake, this dynasty suffered a lot. This dynasty is now found in only a few villages of the district. However, forgetting their glorious history, the people of this dynasty have started associating themselves with the Kachwahas of Jaipur at the behest of Jagao.

At the time of Dorvansh’s rule, in 1185 AD, a group of Badgujar Rajputs from Rajour, Rajasthan, came under the leadership of Rao Pratap Singh Badgujar, who got 150 village jagir in dowry for marrying the daughter of the ruler of Dorvansh, in which present-day Dibai- Pahasu-Atrauli area comes. Their first capital was Pahasu, then Chandhera. At the time of Jahangir, he got present Anupshahar and * Jahangirabad’s area as jagir. In this way, gradually they brought a large part of Bulandshahr and Aligarh district under their control.

The entire south east area of Bulandshahr was under Badgujars where even today they have a large population in about hundred villages which are spread in Anupshahar, Dibai, Shikarpur, Khurja and Sayana assembly. It is the largest clan of the district in terms of numbers. Banail, Belon, Anivas, Barauli etc. are the big villages of this dynasty. Former RSS Sarsanghchalak from Banail village was Rajendra Singh ji alias Rajju Bhaiya, though he belonged to Tomar dynasty. Surya Pratap Singh Raghav of Nagla Dalpatpur village has recently become IAS.

During the reign of Chauhans, a Jagir of 32 villages of Chauhan Rajputs was established in the north of Bulandshahr district, whose headquarter was at Sentha. This is called Battisa of Chauhans. After Taimur’s invasion of Delhi, a civil war broke out among the Tughlaqs, in which Nusrat Shah captured Delhi and became the Sultan. His opponent, Mallu Iqbal Khan, the most powerful ally of the outgoing Sultan Muhammad Shah, ruled the Doab from Baran. Sultan Nusrat Shah sent a large army under the leadership of Shahab Khan to eliminate Mallu Iqbal Khan in Baran. But this army encountered the Chauhans of Battisa on the way and the Chauhans cut Shahab Khan’s neck and wiped out the entire army of the Sultan. As a punishment, Battisa’s entire jagir was confiscated and to save the entire khap, her Chaudhary had to become a Muslim.
