Short History

This Musalman family is descended from Badar Singh, the son of a daughter of the Ahbans Chief of Badiagaon in Hardoi by a Sombansi Rajput. When he and his brother were staying with their mother at their maternal home as guests of their grandfather, Dan Singh, Badiagaon was attacked by the Sayyid Kurram of the great and powerful Muhamdi Raj, founded by the Sayyids from Kanouj. Sayyid Kurram slew everyone in the village except the two boys, whom he carried off as prisoners to Aurangabad. Badar Singh became a convert to Islam under the name of Ibadullah, married the daughter of the Sayyid Kurram, and in 1734 ousted his brothers-in-law and seized the great Muhamdi Raj.
