“A mysterious story (legend?) also goes about the birth of Roshan Ali Khan and Dadak, twin brothers and eldest of sons of Mutawali Khan.The story goes that Mutawali Khan’s wife, after a couple of years of marriage had, failed to bear him an heir. This was a matter of immense tension for Mutawali: to remarry or not to remarry? (As he loved his wife very much.) One day while he was making preparations to set on a journey towards Chitral fort, upon Mehtar’s call, a darvesh came to visit him at his home. The darvesh was carrying a cedar pole on his shoulder. He gave the cedar pole to Mutawali, with instructions to keep it safe till the day he will be blessed with twin sons. “You will be blessed with twin sons. Their names will be Roshan Ali Khan and Dadak” he said, “And when they are born, you should slice this cedar pole and use the pieces as candle for lighting.” With these instructions the mysterious darvesh left, never to be seen in Mutawali’s life again. Mutawali kept the pole safe, and set on the journey a couple of days later. Upon returning from the journey, weeks after, his wife informed him to his immense joy that she was expecting. Months passed by. After hours long immense labour pain, Mutawali’s wife gave birth to twin sons. It was midnight. Mutawali took hold of his axe and went to cut off a slice from the cedar pole. When he struck the axe onto the pole, the blade cut through a thin cedar covering, touched an iron bar-like thing inside, and got blunt. Mutawali sliced apart the pole with great care, and saw to his surprise that there were two gun-barrels of matchlock fittingly kept inside it. Each barrel had the name “Mutawali” engraved on it.
Roshan Ali Khan and Dadak were to be the names of the twin sons.
The matchlock belonging to Dadak came to be inherited by the eldest sons of his descendants. It has ultimately come down to my father Maula Nigah Nigah (Late). The engraved name “Mutawali” is still clearly visible on it along with Hijri year.
The one belonging to Roshan Ali Khan has come down to the family of Lali Sardar Nawaz Khan Advocate of Lonkuh, i think.” (Danish 2020: Nigah 2004)
