PM Imran Khan's Mother's House in Basti Nau , Jalandhar

Now Law College / GNDU College ( Haveli of Ahmed Hussan Khan- Nanaji of PM Imran Khan )


We are most grateful to Jenab Ather Khan Sahib ( Pakistan ) for this great information

This is the house of Burki Family then Commisioner Ahmed Hussan Khan father of Ahmed Raza Khan, Shaukat Khanum mother of World known Cricketer Imran Khan and Shaukat Khanum elder sister married to Lieut. General Wajid Khan Burki and their sons also top cricketer.

Gen Zia ul Haq 's father was living in a Hura as he was the Imam at Burkis Mosque at Basti Bawa Khel near Basti Daneshmandan.

I was born 1940 in Basti Nau and only my grand father Nawab Khan and Ahmed Hussan Khan uncle Shah Zaman Khan owned whole Basti Nau. Shah Zaman Khan lived in a house made of old small bricks like a fort near our Mosque.

Lahore - Financial Hub of Undivided India

I grew up in Jullundur City, .

 My father was a very powerful man in the then Lahore, the Financial Centre to the world. Yes, I am saying what I said. VERY powerful in the world of business and finance of course. 

Afghan Club (cricket) was of Imran Khan's uncle's before partition. Jahangir Khan? He was known as "Chirhimar" for his bowling ball killed a flying sparrow in cricket ground in England. 

Lahore was headquarter, mark the word, Headquarter to more than 100 banks, as many insurance companies, two (not just one) Stock Exchanges, Forward Exchanges, Rinks, and you go on and on and on

Jullundur was a complete town )

(  Ather Khan Sahib )


Ahmed Hassan Khan had three daughters -  Mubarak was married to Jahangir Khan, eldest to Lt. General Burki (Vice President of Pakistan) in General Ayub Khan Government in 1960's and Imran Khan mother was married out of Burki family to Niazi family.

 Last time I forgot to mention that Ahmed Hassan Khan brother Ahmed Hussain Khan known as Kabulia had also House about 200 meters from our family house and uncle Wazir Khan House was near our grave yard and next to grave yard was Basti Guzhan. Basti Sheikh, Basti Guzhan, Basti Shah Quli, Basti Daneshmandan, Basti Baba Khel mostly inhabited by Pathan Tribes.

Here are couple of links which I searched for our two sons who are Swedes like their mother to know their Ancestor. 

I used often hear in my childhood that Jullundur water is from heavenly stream and all born here are most honest people.

Great Burki Pathans of Jalandhar / Jullundur ( PM Imran Khan 's Maternal Ancestors )

According to a Burki historian, K. Hussain Zia, the Burki emigration from Kaniguram was prompted by a severe drought; "The elders decided that some people would have to leave in order for the others to survive. It was thus that 40 families bade farewell to Kaniguram. The entire population walked with them for some miles and watched from the top of a hill till they were out of sight."[55] These forty caravans would eventually arrive in Jalandhar, an area which the Burkis were already acquainted with previously, on account of their trading routes to India via the Grand Trunk Road.[55] In Jalandhar, the Burkis established fortified villages referred to as "bastis".[55]To preserve their ethnic identity and keep their Pashtun culture intact in India, they did not marry outside their tribe.[55]Khan's maternal family lived in twelve fortresses in an area in Jalandhar founded by the Burkis known as the Basti Pathan(lit. Pathan Colony). Khan's maternal grandfather, Ahmed Hasan Khan, was a civil servant and known to have hosted Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah, Founder of Pakistan, at Basti Pathan.[22] Until the 18th century, the Jalandhar Burkis retained ties and trading links with their kinsmen back in Kaniguram. However, these links were cut off following local instability duringSikh resistance against the Mughal Empire. As a result of this, the Jalandhar Burkis lost much of their language and cultural traits, adopting the Punjabi language.[55]
