Change the name of Jalalabad fort… Asked CM Yogi, said – The Mughals captured it by snatching it from the Hindu king



Sachin Sharma, Shamli: A fort in Shamli district, Uttar Pradesh has come under fire for controversy. There was a request to change the name of Jalalabad fort here. Rashtriya Lok Dal MLA Ashraf Ali’s family has lived in this fort for centuries. Now it is claimed that the Mughals snatched this fort from the Hindu king. An appeal has been made to Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath about this.

This request was raised by the Manhar Kheda Durg Kalyan Samiti regarding Jalalabad Fort. Committee Secretary Bhanu Pratap Singh along with dozens of members met with SDM Nitika Sharma and wrote an application for CM Yogi Adityanath. The committee claims that this centuries-old fort spread over hundreds of hectares of premises belonged to Hindus.

According to the secretary of the committee, “The present fort of Jalalabad was built by a Hindu king. He was captured by Jalal Khan, the commander of Mughal ruler Aurangzeb. Ashraf Ali claims that this fort belongs to his ancestors, but the reality is that the owner of the fort, the Hindu king, was poisoned to death by Jalal Khan. We demand that the name of the fort be changed to Manhar Kheda. And also the fort should be handed over to the UPS.

Members of the Manhar Kheda Durg Kalyan Samiti claim that the fort was built by the Suryavanshi Kshatriya kings. The name of the fort was Manhar Quila and it is over 400 years old. It is claimed that at that time the name of Jalalabad was also Manhar Kheda. But during the reign of Aurangzeb, along with the renaming, the fort was also captured.
