Bantva-Manavadar was a princely state founded in 1760 on the Kathiawar peninsula in Gujarat, India. It had an area of approximately 574 km², and contained 26 primarily Hindu villages. Its ruler held the title of Khan Sahib.
On 14 September 1947, following the independence of the British Raj, the Khan Sahib Ghulam Moinuddin Khanji acceded the state of Manavadar to the Dominion of Pakistan though the state had no such right to do so being a vassal of Junagarh. This act was done at the same time as his master, the Nawab of Junagadh who himself had no right being a vassal of Baroda State. Indian police forces were subsequently sent into Manavadar on 22 October 1947, and the Khan Sahib was placed under house arrest at Songadh. An administrator was appointed to carry on the governance of the state, during which time the Government of India held a UN supervised and attested plebiscite in his domain. Participants voted in favour of union with India. The state was merged with the federated state of Saurashtra on 20 February 1949. 
The Khan Sahib remained imprisoned at Rajkot until the Indian authorities agreed to release him following the Liaquat Nehru Pact of 8 April 1950. He then left for Karachi in 1951, where he continued to be officially recognised and granted all the prerogatives of a royal prince, until his death in 2003.
