History and origin
The early Pathan settlers in what became the princely state of Bhopal were known as Barru-kat because they initially used reeds for roofing their houses. Bhopal became a hub for Pathan settlement, with others arriving to be soldiers in the Begum's army. Immigration continued until the creation of Pakistan in 1947. The state of Jaora was settled by Rohilla Pathans.[full citation needed]
