It is generally believed that Bacha Khan fought against the British at every forum. But the truth is that along with the Hindus, he was also a servant of the British. His father Bahram Khan was a tout and helper of the British.

In the War of Independence of 1857, he received large sums of money & land in exchange for the services of the British forces, which are still in the possession of his grandchildren. Khan Ghazi Qabli writes in his book "Tehreek-e-Khudai Khidmatgar" that the British made

Bahram Khan, the father of Khan Abdul Ghaffar Khan, a feudal lord by giving him hundreds of acres of land. Bahram Khan's second son, Khan Abdul Jabbar Khan, also used to receive a monthly stipend from the British government.

1, He was against British Rule but in favour of merger with Afghanistan which Alhumdulillah didn't happen

2, His father didn't get it from the British coz Bacha khan belongs to Muhammadzai tribe who are from charsadda back than their tribe had 80+ percent of lands in their possession for a khan to have 500 + acres of lands was something normal . The khans of Tangi in upper charsadda had 5000-15000+ fertile agriculture lands
