Extinction of Afghan Power in Northern India

Extinction of Afghan Power in Northern India

(p.238) 15. Extinction of Afghan Power in Northern India
A History of the Sikhs

Khushwant Singh

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines how the power of the Afghans in northern India came to an end. A month after the battle of Attock, the Durbar made plans to seize Kashmir from the Afghans. This led to the second campaign in Kashmir, which unfortunately was a failure. The Durbars did not launch any further campaigns until the Anglo-Gurkha war, but it was only when the Punjabis succeeded in conquering Multan that the influence of the Afghans over Punjab was broken. The next section gives an account of the Punjabi's march from the Indus to Peshawar, and is followed by a discussion of the eventual capture of Kashmir on July 1819. The chapter ends with a discussion on Hazara, Mankera, and Dera Ghazi Khan, three territories that were eventually added to the Punjab.

Keywords:   Afghan power, battle of Attock, the Durbar, Kashmir, Anglo-Gurkha war, conquering Multan, Indus-Peshawar march, Dera Ghazi Khan
