The built of Shikarpur

 The built of Shikarpur is told about 1617 A.D. (ﻫ 1026). First time the discovery about Shikarpur was came in the journey of Captain Alexander Burnes “A Voyage on Indus travels in to Bukhara”, then the theory of Alexander was revised in the report of Captain F.G. Gold Smid “A historical memories on Shikarpur”، it is “The late Sir Alexander Burnes records Hijra 1026 as the year in which Shikarpur was built, this corresponds with Anno Domini 1617, and it is ascertained by Ghok (غوک) or Frog (Marking a marshy neighborhood) to be found in the mosque of Haji Fakeer Ola, out side the Lakhi Gate of town. This numerical value is thus explained (غ =١٠٠٠ + و = ٦+ ک =٢٠= ١٠٢٦ﻉ)”.

When Jalal Abro got death in 1669, then his sons went in a frication with Bahadur Khan Daudpota, for that reason Daudpotas migrated from Tarahi and placed in the area of today’s Shikarpur. And the got this area (Shikarpur) from Governor of Sibi (Balochistan), Mirza Khan Punni (1666-1699), where before this area was a hunting place (شڪارگاه) and for this Daudpotas named this area Shikarpur. This was mid of 1669 to 1675, means Shikarpur was built in this period. In that period near Shikarpur (in today’s Lakhi Ghulam Shah) Mahar tribes were big affected politically and tribally. And Sher Khan Mahar was the Sardar (leader) of Mahar tribe.

After few time Sardar Sher Khan Mahar got dispute with Daudpotas in imbroglio of land. In the result Sher Khan Mahar got defeat and Daudpotas got Occupation on Mahar tribe area Lakhi.

Faqir Abdul Qadir Bux Sufi Poet Bedil Bekas

Faqir Qadir Bux Bedil 1814 1230 Hijri better known by his nom de plume Bedil (one bereft of heart) , was a Sufi Poet and scholar of great stature. After Shah Abdul Latif Bhittai and Sachal Sarmast other two stars that shone on the firmament of Sindhi poetry and who could measure up to them in excellence, were the father and son Bedil and Bekas. They wrote poetry both in Sindhi and Persian. Bedil was well versed in a number of languages, Sindhi, Persian, Urdu, Arabic and Hindi. He has written poetry in Sindhi, Siraiki, Urdu, Persian and even in Hindi.
 Bedil was born to a very pious family of Rohri. His father Khalifo Muhammad Mohsun was a disciple of Sayed Mir Janullah Shah Rizvi who himself was a great saint of his time, highly venerated and was chief of forty cardinals of Sufi Shah Inayat Shaheed of Jhok Shareef. Thus Bedil was brought up in such a enlightened environment under the guidance of Mir Sahib himself. On his birth he was named Abdul Qadir but he preferred to be called Qadir Bux. He was a staunch Muslim who molded his life strictly according to the laws of Shariah. He was very simple and frugal in his style of living and gave away whatever he received, to the needy. He followed the path of Ishqu Majazi (Platonic love) to attain the heights of Ishqu Haqiqi (spiritual love) as dictated by Mystic doctrine. He was a devotee of Lal Shahbaz Qalandar of Sehwan also. Although he had deformity in one foot, yet he undertook long journeys to Sehwan to pay his homage to the Saints Shrine. He went to Jhok Sharif to pay homage to shrine of Sufi Shah Inayat Shaheed and also to Daraza, to visit the shrine of Sachal Sarmast. Fakir Muhammad Muhsin Beqas (1275 Hijri / 1958 A.D. - 1298 Hijri / 1882 A.D
