Lying at the foot of the Himalayas, district Bijnor enjoys a unique place among the districts of the Western Uttar Pradesh and Uttaranchal. The current official name of our country 'BHARAT is after Bharat who belongs to this district. Bijnor is the gateway of the hilly region of Uttaranchal and enjoys a central position among the adjoining districts of Pauri Garhwal and Hardwar in the North, Moradabad in the South, Nainital and Udham Singh Nagar in East and Saharanpur, Muzaffar Nagar and Meerut in the West. Bijnor is mainly an agricultural district.
Little is known of the early history of Bijnor. District Bijnor is related to Mahabharat.There is a Vidur kuti in Bijnor. In the time of Mughal emperor Akbar, Bijnor formed part of the Mughal Empire. However, in the early part of the 18th century, the Rohilla Pashtuns established their independence in the country called by them Rohilkhand; and about 1748 the Rohilla chief Ali Mohammed Khan made his first annexations in Bijnor, the rest of which soon fell under the Rohilla domination. The northern districts were granted by Ali Mohammed Khan to Khurshid Ahmed Baig, who gradually extended his influence west of the Ganges and at Delhi, receiving the title of Najib-ud-daula and becoming paymaster of the royal forces. His success, however, raised up powerful enemies against him, and at their instigation the Marathas invaded Bijnor. This was the beginning of a feud which continued for years. Najib, indeed, held his own, and for the part played by him in the victory of Panipat was made vizier of the empire.
Near Najibabad, there are ruins of a stone fort having thick ramparts which is famous as Sultana Daku ka Qila or "Fort of Sultana The Bandit". The fort is said to be built by legendary King Mayurdhawaj in ancient time, which was ruined and in eighteenth century Rohilla Chief Najibuddaulah got it repaired and used it for his army, after fall of Rohillas the fort was abandoned and again came to be ruined. During British Raj in second decade of twentieth century Decoit Sultana and his gang could have used ruins of this fort as their hiding place giving a cause of such storey mongering.
In 1772 the Nawab of Oudh made a treaty with the Rohillas, covenanting to expel the Marathas in return for a money payment. He carried out his part of the bargain; but the Rohilla chieftains refused to pay. In 1774 the Nawab concluded with the East India Company government of Calcutta a treaty of alliance, and he now called upon the British, in accordance with its terms, to supply a brigade to assist him in enforcing his claims against the Rohillas. This was done; in the Rohilla War, the Rohillas were driven beyond the Ganges, and Bijnor was incorporated in the territories of the nawab, who in 1774 ceded it to the British East India Company. From this time the history of Bijnor is uneventful until the rebellion of 1857, when (on 1 June) it was occupied by the nawab of Najibabad, a grandson of Zabita Khan. In spite of fighting between the Hindus and the Muslim Pashtuns, the Nawab succeeded in maintaining his position until the 21 April 1858, when he was defeated by the British at Nagina, whereupon British authority was still in place until. Chaudhary Charan Singh and Babu Lakhan Singh Dhaka graduated from agra University and they fought for freedom till last breath.
