Syud Mir Muhammed Jafar Ali Khan, formal title 'Shuja
ul-Mulk, Hashim ud-Daulla, Nawab Ja'afar Ali Khan Bahadur, Mahabat Jang
(Hero of the Country, Sword of the State, Horror in War)' commonly known as Mir
Jafar, belonged to the Syud dynasty. Hazrat Ali the first khalifa, and the son-in-law of Hazrat Muhammad, was the 30th predecessor of Mir Jafar. The mortal remains of Hazrat Ali the first khalifa of Islam lies
buried in Iraq. Mir Jafar's fathers name was Syud Ahmed Najafi and his grandfather's name was Syud Hussain Najafi. Mir Jafar's grandfather Syud Hussain Najafi was the caretaker of the world famous fabulously decorated mausoleum of Hazrat Ali. In 1677 AD Aurangzeb went to Mecca on pilgrimage and met Hussain Najafi. Aurangzeb was impressed seeing his depth of knowledge and personality; and brought him to Delhi, appointing him as
Kazi-a-Koajud (Chief Justice of Supreme Court).
Ahmed Najafi married the daughter of Dara who was the elder brother of Aurangzeb (captured and killed by Aurangzeb
), and their son was Mir Jafar. Dara's wife was the daughter of Rana Jaswant Singh of Chitore. Mir Jafar married
the niece of Alivardi Khan, and their elder son was Miran.
Alivardi raised Mir Jafar to the post of bakhshi
, a position next only to the
Mir Jafar married (first) at Murshidabad on 1727, Shah Khanum Sahiba
Nawab Alivardi Khan and daughter of Shah Quli Khan [Mirza Muhammad Madani]).
She died at Jafarganj Palace, Murshidabad on August 1779 and was burried at Jafarganj Cemetery.
Married (second) H.H. Babbu Begum
Sahiba (Gaddinashin Begum
) daughter of Sammen Ali Khan by Bisu
She died at Murshidabad in 1809, burried at Jafarganj Cemetery.
Married (third) in 1746, H.H. Munny Begum Sahiba (or Mani Begum)
, a former dancing girl in the household of Sammen Ali Khan. (she died at Murshidabad on 10th
January 1813, burried at Jafarganj Cemetery).
He also had Mut'ah
wife Rahat-un-nisa begum
. Mir Jafar had six sons and six daughters.
Mir Jafar had gained a reputation for valour by his rapid march to rescue
Alivardi Khan's nephew, Sauquat Jang
the clutches of Mirza Baqir
near Katak before his defeated and fleeing captors could murder him (in 1741) and later by a victory over the Marathas on 14 December 1746. But he proved his cowardliness when in February 1747 he was ordered to make a stand against the Marathas at
Mednipur; he fled to Burdwan on hearing of the advance of the Maratha forces under
, and abandoned Mednipur to the Maratha ravagers. Soon afterwards he entered into a conspiracy with
(the faujdar of Rajmahal) to overthrow and murder Alivardi. The conspiracy was unearthed and he was dismissed along with his fellow conspirator.
Rise to Power
Soon after Alivardi Khan's natural death, Siraj-ud-Daulla became the Nawab of Bengal at Murshidabad. On ascending the throne, he made the controversial decision of elevating a
Hindu named Mohanlal
as his supreme Dewan. This elevation of a Hindu to such a prominent position caused the established nobility, and in particular Mir Jafar, great offence. He was then the
or head of the armed forces, second only to the Nawab, and the elevation of Mohanlal to a post above him was taken almost as a personal insult. He became determined to overthrow Siraj-ud-Daulla and gain the Nawabi for himself.
After Alivardi Khan's death
Mir Jafar sent a secret letter to Purnea
to invade Bengal, assuring him of his own support as well as the support of other disgruntled elements in the army and the court of Murshidabad. His unbridled ambition made him plan for the dethronement of Siraj-ud-Daulla, and with that aim in view he started intrigues at the Delhi Imperial Court for a
granting Shaukat Jang the three eastern subahs
. But the conspiracy became known to Siraj-ud-Daulla, and he foiled it in time. Siraj-ud-Daulla reshuffled appointments, placing his own partisans in important posts. Mir Jafar was replaced by
as the bakhshi
. When the English decided to overthrow Siraj-ud-Daulla and set up a friendly
on the throne, it became apparent at Calcutta that the great Hindu banker, Jagat
Seth; Rai Durlabh, the former dewan, and Mir Jafar had joined hands with the English to overthrow the nawab. Towards the end of April 1757 the English got promises of cooperation from these conspirators, and on 1st
May 1757 the Calcutta Council agreed to a secret treaty with Mir Jafar, promising to place him on the throne on certain conditions.
, the chief of the English factory at
Cossimbazar, conducted and completed the conspiracy with remarkable diplomatic skill, secrecy and courage. On 5th
June 1757 he visited Mir Jafar and obtained his oath of allegiance.
After the Battle of Plassey পলাশী
June 1757 AD, Clive placed Mir Jafar on the viceregal throne at Murshidabad on 29th
June 1757 AD.
Clive met Mir Jafar at Siraj-ud-Daulla's Heera Jheel
Palace and there, in the presence of the rajas and other courtiers, he led Mir
Jafar by the hand to the masnad
, and saluted him as the nawab of Bengal,
Bihar and Qrissa, upon which the courtiers congratulated him and paid him the
As a reward the company was granted undisputed right to free trade in Bengal, Bihar and Orissa. It also received the
of the 24 Parganas near Calcutta. Mir Jafar paid a sum of Rs. 17,700,000 as compensation to the company for
Siraj-ud-Daulla's attack on Calcutta and the traders of the city. In addition, he paid large sums as 'gifts
' to high officials of the company. Moreover, it was understood that British merchants and officials would no longer be asked to pay any taxes on their private trade. The company's officials wished to grasp all they could by using Mir Jafar as a 'golden sack
' into which they could dip their hands at pleasure.
The following is a copy of the Treaty (the original of which was in Persian
) between Clive on behalf of
The East India Company
and Mir Jafar upon being invested with the Nawabship of Bengal :
"I swear by God and the Prophet of God, to abide by the terms of this Treaty whilst I have life.
(Sd.) "Mir Mohamed Jafar Khan Bahadur,
"Servant to King Alamgir.
"1. Whatever at tides were agreed upon in the time of peace with the Nawab Siraj-ud-Daulla, Mansur-al-Muluk, Shah Kuli Khan Bahadur Hybut Jang. I agree to comply with."
"2. The enemies of the Enghsh are my enemies, whether they be Indians or Europeans."
"3. All the effects and factories belonging to the French in the province of Bengal (the Paradise of Nations) and Bihar, and Orissa,

"4. In consideration of the losses which the English Company have sustained by the capture and plunder of Calcutta by the Nawab,
and the charges occasioned by the maintenance of the forces, I will give them one crore of rupees."
"5. For the effects plundered from the English inhabitants at Calcutta, I agree to give fifty lacs of rupees."
"6. For the effects plundered from the Gentoos, Mussalman, and other subjects of Calcutta, twenty lacs of rupees shall be given."
"7. For the effects plundered from the Armenian inhabitants of Calcutta, I will give the sum of seven lacs of rupees.
The distribution of the sums allotted to the natives, the English inhabitants,
Gentoos, and Mussalman, shall be left to the Admiral and Colonel Clive (Sabut Jung Bahadur) and the rest of
the Council, to be disposed of by them to whom they think proper."
"8. Within the ditch which surrounds the borders of Calcutta are tracts of land belonging to several zamindars;
besides this. I will grant the English Company six hundred yards without the ditch."
"9. All the land lying south of Calcutta, as far as Kulpi, shall be under the zamindary of the English Company
and all the Officers of those parts shall be under their jurisdiction.

"10. Whenever I demand the English assistance, I will be at the charge of the maintenance of them."
"11. I will not erect any new foitifications below Hoogly, near the river Ganges."
"12. As soon as I am established in the Government of the Three Provinces, the aforesaid sums shall be
faithfully paid. Dated 15th Ramzan, in the 4th year of the reign."
** Additional Article **
"13. On condition that Mir Jafar Khan Bahadur shall solemnly ratify, confirm by oath, and execute all the
above articles, which the under-written on behalf of the Honourable East India Company do, declaring
on the Holy Gospels, and before God, that we will assist Mir Jafar Khan Bahadur with all our force,
to obtain the subahship of the Provinces of Bengal, Bihar, and Orissa; and further that we will assist him to
the utmost against all his enemies whatever, as Soon as he calls upon us for that end; provided that he,
on his coming to be Nawab, shall fulfill the aforesaid articles."
But Mir Jafar failed to satisfy the constant demand of money from the British. Many extravagant charges were brought against Mir Jafar in justification of his deposition. Among these were his tyrannical, avaricious and indolent temper; his retention of abject surroundings, the instruments of his vices, the removal of which was necessary for good government; the banishment and slaughter of
); the assassination of his general Mir Kazem
at the gates of the Palace; the slaughter of Yar Mohamed
(the Superintendent of buildings
); the massacre of the survivors of the family of Alivardi Khan, Nawajesh Muhammad Khan and Siraj-ud-Daulla, namely Ghaseti Begum, the widow of Nawajesh Muhammad Khan, Amina Begum the mother of Siraj-ud-Daulla,
who had been adopted by Nawajesh Muhammad Khan;
Confinement of Lutf-un-nisa Begum, widow of Siraj-ud-Daulla and her infant daughter Qudsia Begum
alias Umme Zohra
, together with 70 women in the Jinjira palace at Dacca after the battle of Plassey and accession of Mir Jafar; the imposition of heavy taxes, to which was ascribed the unusual scarcity and dearness of provisions at Murshidabad; and the non-payment of Salaries to the army.
Tradition goes that Ghaseti Begum and Amina Begum were taken out and drowned
with their barge into the Dhaleswari river
(June 1760) at the instance of
Mir Sadeq Ali Khan alias Miran son of Mir Jafar.
In 1758 Clive discovered that Mir Jafar, through an agent, Khojah Wajid, had made a treaty with the
Dutch at Chinsurah. Dutch ships of war were seen in the Hughli. Peace existed between the Dutch and
English, but Clive heard that Dutch troops had been sent for from Batavia. Mir Jafar was asked to direct
the withdrawal of the Dutch. The Nawab went to Hughli (Chinsurah
), and from there sent word to Clive
that at the proper season the Dutch ships would depart. Clive was suspicious, and when the Dutch ships
attacked Fort Tanah
south of Calcutta, he was ready for them and repulsed them. They next attacked
Captain Francis Forde
in a fort below Chinsurah (known as The Battle of Chinsurah
or The Battle of Biderra
With an order from Clive to back him up, Forde engaged the
Dutch and defeated them. Clive left India in 1760, and shortly after his departure Mir Qasim, as Mir
Jafar's Dewan visited Calcutta. The governor
Mr. Henry Vansittart
proposed that as the Nawab was old and
not able to cope with the difficulties of administration, Mir Qasim should act for him as Deputy-Nazim.
Ultimately, in October 1760, the company forced Mir Jafar to abdicate in favour
of his son-in-law, Mir Qasim
But soon the independent spirit of Mir Qasim led
to his overthrow and the English restored Mir Jafar as nawab in 1763 and
collected huge sums for the company and its high officials.
Mir Jafar being re-instated as Nawab, gave up to the English the revenues of
Burdwan, Midnapur, Chittagong, and paid five lakhs of rupees per month
as the pay of the English soldiers till to the end of war with
Three lakhs of this Sum from the
revenues of Bengal were allotted from the Murshidabad treasury, and two lakhs from the Bihar revenue
from the Patna treasury.
Mir Jafar entered Murshidabad on Sunday, July 24th
After remaining six days at Murshidabad, and taking a loan
of twenty-one lakhs of rupees from the Jagat Seth's
for the expenses of the war,
and making Eruj Khan
(father-in-law of Siraj-ud-Daulla) his representative, he set out with the Nizamat and English army
to punish and quell Mir Qasim.
Mir Jafar was at the head of nearly nineteen thousand soldiers, of which twelve thousand were from
the English army. The Governor of Calcutta wrote a letter of congratulation to the re-instated Nawab
on his success in the contest with Mir Qasim : "Bengal now has come into your hands, and the
inhabitants, being freed from the oppression of Mir Qasim, have come under your protection. If God
please, the country will again flourish
Mir Jafar became the Nawab of Bengal two times. First he ruled from 1757 to 1760 AD, then from 1760 to 1763 AD his son-in-law Mir Qasim was the Nawab. Again he became the Nawab on 25th
July 1763 AD till his death on 17th
January 1765 AD. He was buried at Jafarganj Mokbara
Mir Jafar built a palace at Jafarganj, though nothing remains of this palace only a huge Deorhi
) speaks of the past. After the battle of Plassey Miran captured and killed Siraj-ud-Daulla in a room inside this palace. From that time local people call this gate
Nimak Haram Deorhi
or the Traitor's gate
He was a faithful friend of Lord Clive, to whom he left an enormous legacy known as the Nurjashim
'light of his eyes
valued at 5 lakhs of rupees, gold mohurs
and jewellery. From this legacy the Clive Fund was established to
provide relief and maintenance to invalid and superannuated European soldiers, officers and their families.
In 1756 Mir Jafar sheltered some European ladies in his own quarters to protect them from Siraj-ud-Daulla.
He sent them in his own special boat at night with his trustworthy companion Mirza Amir Beg
, to Governor
Drake. This was the original cause of the friendship between the English and Mir Jafar.
The Najafi Dynasty
Islam began in an area of the Arabian Peninsula inland from the northeast shore of the Red Sea.
This dry hilly area, called the Hijaz
, was dominated by a number of different tribes in the latter half
of the sixth century, when Mohammad was born. The Koreish tribe was one of the strongest tribes in the
Hijaz and it controlled the city of Mecca, which housed a sacred sanctuary called the Kaba
It was here where Mohammad was born and spent most of his life. The people in the Hijaz were polytheistic, worshipping many gods,
and the Kaba was a shrine to over three hundred of them. Since they gained income both from trade that passed through their territories and
from pilgrimage to the Kaba, they opposed Mohammad's message of monotheistic worship of Allah .
After the Muslims left for Medina , the Koreish tribe led armies out to defeat the Medinans.
After their own defeat in 630, the Koreish tribe converted to Islam.
