His name appears in the settlement of 1865 in Dard, (see page 68), his birth year and death year are unknown. He is an uncle of Mirza Ata Muhammad, Mirza Ghulam Murtaza’s grandfather. In 1865, his off-spring were finally added to the pension that was already supposed to be given to all the males of the Mirza family. His only surviving male in 1865 was Mirza Jilani, who was the son of Mirza Tasadduq Jilani. Mirza Jilani was a distant paternal uncle of MGA and Mirza Jilani was a sort of second cousin. MGA mentions Mirza Jilani in his book Haqiqatul Wahy (1907) 4 times. He mentions him specifically in terms of the “Case of the Wall”. The settlement of 1865 specified a new pension arrangement as such, 700 rupees ; two-fifths belonged to the descendants of Mirza Tasadduq Jilani, two fifths to those of Mirza Gul Muhammad, and one-fifth to Mirza Ghulam Murtaza as the managing proprietor (see Dard page 68).
3 sons are listed in Dard, however, it seems that 2 of those sons were dead by 1865, since their wives are listed as widows (See Dard, pages 69-70). The only surviving son, Mirza Ghulam Jilani seems to have sued Imam ud Din and Mirza Ghulam Murtaza in 1865. This law-suit would later come up during the case of the wall, Jilani lost the suit. This entire side of the family never served for the British government in any capacity after 1883, hence all pensions and rights seem to have ended.
_____________________________________________________________________________________________The Mirza family sued each other in 1864-65
It seems that there were many lawsuits in terms of splitting up the monies and land that was given to Mirza Ghulam Murtaza in 1858. Up to that point, only Mirza Ghulam Murtaza was given any type of pension, the rest of the family has also served in various capacities in 1857 and before, they were very upset at took Mirza Ghulam Murtaza to court and won.
After Mirza Ghulam Murtaza died, his nephews and cousins sued his sons and won. Mirza Ghulam Jilani and Mirza Ghulam Ghaus and many others sued Mirza Ghulam Qadir (who was the family representative to the British government) over land and won decisively, the shock seems to have caused Mirza Ghulam Qadir to die young.
_____________________________________________________________________________________________1901, the case of the Wall
Mirza Imam ud Din built a wall over a piece of land that belonged to him and Mirza Jilani, there seems to have been a lawsuit between these two second-cousins over a small piece of land which was not a cause-way that MGA was using. MGA should have lost this case, however, as they checked the the index of this case, it was revealed that MGA’s father was also listed as a plaintiff, thus the British government sided with MGA and gave him ownership of the land also. Mirza Imam ud Din died in 1904 and his land most likely reverted to MGA, since he didn’t have any male heirs, his daughter married Mirza Sultan Ahmad in 1883.
