Founding of Paharistan

Paharistan was founded in 1969. The Muslims of India were tired of Hindu nationalism in India and the Muslim of Pakistan hoped for a less secular, more traditionalist Islamist state that would hold true to the original Islamic government practices such as freedom of religion and social programs. The Republic of Paharistan was founded to be a state for Muslims but has minority populations. The land that would become Paharistan was taken over by Muslim partisans in military operation led by Hamza Yahya Khaled al-Fareed al-Hussam, the father of Paharistan.

The Father of Paharistan

Hamza Yahya Khaled in British Prison (c. 1937) following being captured during 1936 Arab Revolt

Hamza Yahya Khaled al-Fareed al-Hussam (1900-1983) was born in a village in the Villayet of the Hejaz. He was a Bedouin tribesman and at the age of 16, he fought for The Hashemite Kingdom of Hejaz alongside the T.E. Lawrence. He then served in the Hashemite Crown until the invasion by the House of Nejd and Saud and was taken over. It was at this time he grew disillusioned with dynasties and royalty. He led several unsuccesful revolutions against the House of Saud, British Iraq, and the French Levant. In 1936 he traveled to British Mandate of Palestine in order to fight against the British and was captured in 1937 for rebelling and terrorist actions but received no trial. He was freed from Prison in 1939 and fled to British Punjab leaving his two wives and 7 kids in Hejaz. While in India, Hamza met Subhas Chandra Bose and agreed to become an officer in the Free Indian Legion during WWII and fought alongside the Afrika Korps but following the defeat in North Africa in 1942, Khaled left to Pashtunistan and grew enamored with South Asian culture and history. Following the Partition of British India into India and East-West Pakistan, Khaled disliked leaders like Jinnah but liked leaders such as Khan Abudl Ghafoor Khan. In 1954, Khaled, while living in Gujurat, envisioned an Islamic state in South Asia that would embrace traditional Maliki Islamic state which he felt that Pakistan and other Islamic states had failed to do so. He then started the political party "Pipalsa Islamika Parṭi" and its militant branch "Pahari Islamika Sain'ya"to found the state of Paharistan, or land of hills. He took inspiration from Baathist economic socialism but embraced Maliki Islamic values. The group took power in the parts of pakistan and india that would become Paharistan. While recruiting people throughout India he took 3 wives and had 11 kids but adopted a 1-year old Indian boy who he named Mohammed Abdul Ghafoor Najafi Abdul (1958-2039) and took him under his wing to raise as his successor. In 1966 the Pipalsa had grown very powerful poltiical and militarilly and fought against Pakistan and India for independence and gained in 1969 when Khaled was 69 years old. He took control as the de-facto leader of Paharistan and served until he died in 1983. Khaled did not forget his Arab brothers, especially the Palestinians. He founded the city of New Gaza which is home to 90,000 People including 60,000 Palestinians. His adopted son took over from his father while he studying in England. He married a Bengali woman and served till his death in 2039. His son Mohammed Abdul Ghafoor Najafi Abdul the 2nd (2013-) has since taken over the government.
