Isakhel is a town of Mianwali District in the Punjab province of Pakistan. The town is the headquarters of Isakhel Tehsil, an administrative subdivision of the district and is located at 32°40’29N 71°16’52E.

Isakhel is an important town located in the west of Mianwali District. It is a historical town named after Isa Khan, a famous Niazi chief. Until November 1901 IsaKhel was tehsil headquarters of Bannu District – however after the North-West Frontier Province was created from Punjab province, Bannu district was included in the NWFP without the Isakhel tehsil. IsaKhel which was trans-Indus tehsil became part of the newly formed Mianwali district of the Punjab.

The town was founded about 1830 by Ahmad Khan, ancestor of the present Khans of IsaKhel, who are the acknowledged heads of the trans-Indus Niazai; and it takes its name from Shah IsaKhel, a religious teacher, whose descendants still live in the town. The municipality was created in 1875.

In 1901, during British rule, when the tehsil became part of Mianwali, the population the town was 7,630. The income and expenditure during the ten years ending 1902-3 averaged Rs. 4,400. In 1903-4 the income was Rs. 5,100, chiefly derived from octroi; and the expenditure was Rs. 4,600. A small cattle market is held weekly. The town contained a dispensary and a municipal vernacular middle school.

IsaKhel is also famous for the Feudal Niazi chiefs who were designated Nawabs during the British colonial era. Some of them got the title of “Khan Bahadur” during that period. IsaKhel remains the first Niazi stronghold in the district after they left the Marwat plains.

Trag is one of the biggest village of Tehsil IsaKhel (Tarna, an old name),District Mianwali. Trag came into being in between 1660-1685. It is populated by one of the significant clan “Shado Khel” hailing from Niazi Pathans.These people are basically Afghan in origin and adventured Hindustan along with their main tribe i.e. Niazi. Their entry route was Wana—-Tank—-Dera Ismail Khan and Paniala/ Kundal. They finally settled at present location.

Trag is named after his notable elder, literally meaning an “Iron Helmet”. He was an adventurous and brave combatant. He was famous for his ever readiness, most of the times seen in combatiour outfit. Hence his real name is not traceable. And he became well known as Trag. The family tree of Trag is Trag bin Amir Khan bin Jehangir Khan bin Shado Khel bin Khir bin Jam bin Tor bin Habib bin Wagan bin Jamal Niazi. He had three sons Ako, Bako and Khero. Descendants of these sons of Trag occupy main bulk of the village and are known as Akwal, Ibrahim Khel and Kherowal.

Syeds, Qureshis, Arayans, Bhambs, Buchas, Awans, Mohanas, Dheor and Jats etc hold significant number in local population and contributing their role in the social development of their beloved soil.

      Dear Khalid Niazi

      We do not exactly know what is the population ratio of Niazis in Mianwali. However, I must say that less than 40% of the population of Mianwali is Niazi.
