LAst few sentences look like POV i dont nothing about this tribe so I cant clean it up. Maybe someone can? ? --Aranda56 21:31, 18 September 2005 (UTC)
There is a very common misconception that the Charsadda Hashtnagar Muhammadzais are related to the Barakzai ruling family of Afghanistan. Please note that the Barakzai-Muhammadzais are a branch of the Durrani clan, whereas the Hashtnagar Muhammadzais are NOT related to the Durranis. Therefore the sons of Behram Khan (Dr. Khan Sahib & Bacha Khan) donot have Barkzai-Muhammadzai lineage.
The correct lineage can be found in "The Pathans" by Sir Olaf Caroe. When i return to Islamabad i can provide the correct reference.

Mohammadzai and Barakzai Debate
I consistently update this page only to find my additions from the charsadda region deleted. One of the previous authors claimed he would add a reference that the Muhammadzai’s of charsadda are not the same as those of Afghanistan. As per se, there are many sub tribes of the Durrani clan, however, the Mohammadzai’s finally took the reigns of power from the descendants of ahmed shah baba. These Mohammadzai’s run up to the Hasthnagar valley.
@hashtnaghar i have updated all of the history abut hashnaghar muhammadzai u can chk

@hashtnaghar they are absolutely not the same people. The Muhammadzai of Afghanistan were/are the ruling families of the country. We know very well who we are and we all descend from the Afghan king Payinda Khan who's sons were each given title, Amir Muhammad (Kabul), Rahmdil Khan (Kandahar & Balochistan), Sultan Telai (Peshawar) and Dost Muhammad Khan title of Ruler. We all know each other until today as first and second (and third) cousins. We are not a very large tribe who extend into modern day Pakistan. This tribe you speak of in Charsadda has absolutely NO relation to the Muhammadzai Pashtun tribe of Afghanistan - my family. I'm sure they are great people but this wiki page is linked to every prominent Afghan leader, king and queen from Afghanistan's Muhammadzai family. Please stop turning it into some open forum for pakistani tribal debates. If there is a second tribe in Pakistan with this name PLEASE MAKE A NEW PAGE! Again, this page is already linked to dozens of other pages. WE HAVE NO RELATION TO PAKISTAN!
