Ziarat Hazrat Kaka Sahib, District Nowshera
Noshehra (Sunday, October 28, 2012) – Shrine of Syed Kastir Gul alias Kaka Sahib is situated in the Nowshera district of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. Kakakhels are a prominent Syed clan of Khyber Pukhtoonkhwa. Roots Kaka Khels reach to Hazrat Ali bin Ismail bin Imame Jafer Sadiq.
Kakakhels are descendants of the Islamic Sufi (wali) Syed Kastir Gul (also known as Kaka Sahib), and Sheikh Rahamkar – a student of Sheikh Hazrat Akhun Adeen/Adyan Seljuki. Title of Rahamkar was given by Syed Abdul Wahab Akhun Panju Baba.
Kastir Gul was affectionately known as “Kaka Sahib“, and his descendants are known as Kakakhels – meaning “the sons of Kakasahib”. The clan originated in a small village known as “Kakasaib” in Nowshera District, Khayber Pukhtoonkhwa Province (formerly the North West Frontier Province of Pakistan), and then spread across the district.
