Jalaluddin Muhammad Akbar

Brief History: Historians are of the view that Hafizabad was built between 1556 to 1570.
According to a legend, Mughal Emperor Jalaluddin Muhammad Akbar came to the present site of Hafizabad on a hunting trip and was separated from the hunting party. He felt thirsty. He saw a hut where lived Hafiz Mustafa Bukhari, a Muslim Sufi saint. He entertained Akbar. Akbar was impressed by his hospitality and asked him for any reward. The saint asked the Emperor to build a town. Akbar ordered for the construction of a town there and it was named Hafizabad after Hafiz Mustafa Bukhari (Reference: Tehsil Municipal Administration Hafizabad).

After the decline of the Mughal Empire, the Sikhs occupied Pujnab and Hafizabad also came under their influence. The Muslims faced severe restrictions during the Sikh rule. In 1846 the British annexed Punjab and Hafizabad came under the British colonial rule. Later the predominantly Muslim population supported Muslim League and Pakistan Movement and Pakistan came into being in 1947.
