Muhammad Ibrahim Ali Khan Ba-
hadur, Naicdb Bahadur of. A ruling

July 16, 1871. Belongs to an Afghan
family, whose ancestor, Shaikh Sadr-
ud-din, came from Kabul about the
end of the 15th century, and obtained
in marriage a daughter of the Afghan
Emperor of DelLi, with a territory in
the province of Sirhind as her dowry.
Fifth in descent from him was Bazid
Khan, who obtained the title of Nawab
irom the Emperor Alamgir,and founded
the town of Maler Kotla in 1657 a.d.
The State gradually became inde-
pendent during the decay of the Im-
perial power of Delhi in the 18th
century, but being under Afghan and
Muhammadan rulers, it was frequently



involved in feucls with its Sikh neigh-
bours, and especially with the power-
ful Chiefs of Patiala. In 1732 the
Nawab Jamal Khan aided the Im-
perialist troops against Rdjd Ala Singh
of Patiala ; and again in 1761 the
same Nawab aided the forces of Ahmad
Shah Durani against the Sikhs. Jamal
Khan's son, however, the Nawab
Bhikan Khan, experienced the venge-
ance of the Sikhs ; and being hard
pressed by the forces of the Raja
Amar Singh of Patiala, was forced to
sign a treaty, under which peace
ensued for many years. In 1787 the
Rajd of Patiala aided the Nawab
of Maler Kotla against the Sikh Sardar
of Bhadaur. In 1794 a combination
of Sikh Sardars attacked Maler Kotla
under the Bedi Saheb Singh, a de-
scendant of the great Sikh Guru, Baba
Nanak. The Nawab was besieged in
Maler Kotla, and reduced to ex-
tremities, when he was saved from
destruction by the intervention of the
Raja of Patiala. In General Lake's
campaigns against the Mahrattas, the
Nawab of Maler Kotla joined the
British army with all his followers,
and in 1809 was taken under British
protection, and guaranteed against the
encroachments of the Maharaja Ranjit
Singh of Lahore. The late Nawab,
Sikandar Ali Khan, in 1862, obtained
the assurance of the British Govern-
ment that any succession in accordance
with Muhammadan law would be
respected; and accordingly, when he
died without issue in 1871, he was
succeeded by the present Nawab, the
heir of a collateral branch of the
family. The area of the State is 164
square miles ; its population is about
71,000, of whom the Sikhs number
about 28,000, the Muhammadans about
24,000, and the Hindus about 16,000.
The Nawab enjoys the title of " His
Highness" as a personal distinction.
He maintains a military force of 60
cavalry, 228 infantry, and 6 guns,
and is entitled to a salute of 11 guns,
including 2 guns which were added to
the salute as a personal distinction on
January 1, 1877, on the occasion of
the Proclamation of Her Majesty as
Empress of India. Residence: Maler

MANDI, His Highness Raja Bije Sain
Bahadur, Rdjd of. A ruling chief ; b.
1846. Succeeded to the gadi as a
minor January 26, 1851. Belongs to a
Rajput (Hindu) family of the Chan-
dravansi or Lunar race, whose succes-
sive Rajas ruled from the earliest ages
over the combined States of Suket and
Mandi, until the year 1200 a.d. About
that time the reigning Chief of Suket,
named Sahu Sain, quarrelled with his
younger brother ; the latter left Suket
to seek his fortunes elsewhere, and
his descendant, Ajbar Sain, founded
the town of Mandi, and was the first
Raja of this State. At the time of
the Gurkha invasion in 1803, Isri Sain
was the Raja of Mandi ; he submitted
to the invaders on condition of being
left unmolested. After the expulsion
of the Gurkhas by the British Power
in 1815, Mandi came under the control
of the Superintendent of the Hill
States appointed by the Sikh Govern-
ment of Lahore, and it suffered greatly
from the turbulence of the Sikh army
after the death of the Maharaja
Ran jit Singh in 1839. General Ven-
tura, the Sikh commander, invaded
the State, and reduced the celebrated
fort of Kamlagarh, and the Raja in
vain besought the aid of the British.
But at last, about the time of the first
Sikh war, the British Government
consented to intervene. In February
1846 the Rdjd Balbir Sain formally
tendered his allegiance. By the treaty
of March 1846 with the Sikhs, Mandi
with the whole of the Jalandhar Doab
was ceded to the British Government ;
and Raja Balbir Sain in October of
the same year received a sanad, con-
firming him in his possessions under
conditions of feudal service. Balbir
Sain died in 1851, and was succeeded
by his son, the present Raja, then a
minor. According to the traditions of
the country there were at one time no
fewer than 300 fortresses in this State ;
but of these only about ten now exist
in any preservation — the most famous
being the hill-fort of Kamlagarh
mentioned above. The area of the
State is 1125 square miles ; its popula-
tion is about 140,000, chiefly Hindus,
but including more than 2000 Muham-



madans. The Raja Bahadur maintains
a military force of 25 cavalry, 1600
