Musa Khurd موسیٰ خورد


The establishment of village Musa Khurd موسیٰ خورد came before the establishment of the United Indian Subcontinent. A large number of Hindus and Sikhs were staying here. But Muslims were also in the minority. On the western side of the village on the right side of the canal was the Hindu cremation ground which was an open field and full of wild bushes. And passing by there, the day was also afraid. Here they used to burn their dead and I have heard regular mention of it from the mouth of my maternal grandmother who was young in consciousness before the establishment of Pakistan.

Musa Khurd was named after an old Hindu Jodhu Musa and they were two brothers. One was named Jodhu Musa and the other was Variya Musa. Jodhu Musa was younger and Variya Musa was the elder brother and both of them had more agricultural holdings. For this reason, two villages came into existence in the name of these brothers, Musa Khurd and the neighboring village Musa Kalan.

After the establishment of Pakistan, Hindu and Sikh pilgrims migrated to India and most of the population migrated and the rest remained Muslims. Even today, in this village, there are many buildings from before the establishment of Pakistan, which tell the story of their time and are worth visiting.

منڈی بہاوالدین کا جنوب مغربی قدیم گاؤں موسیٰ خورد( نکا موسیٰ ) ایک تعارف

موسیٰ خورد کا قیام متحدہ برصغیر پاک و ہند سے پہلے قیام میں آیا، یہاں پر زیادہ تعداد ہندو اور سکھوں کی قیام پزیر تھی لیکن اقلیت میں مسلمان بھی آباد تھے۔ گاوں کے مغربی سمت نہر کے داہنی سمت ہندؤں کا شمشان گھاٹ تھا جو ایک کھلے میدان اور جنگلی جھاڑیوں سے بھرا ہوا تھا اور وہاں سے گزرتے ہوئے دن کو بھی خوف آتا تھا۔ یہاں پر وہ اپنے مردے جلایا کرتے تھے اور اس کا باقاعدہ ذکر میں نے اپنی نانی اماں کے منہ سے سن رکھا ہے جو کہ قیام پاکستان سے قبل ہوش و حواس میں جوان تھی.
موسیٰ خورد کا نام ایک ہندو بوڑھے جودھو موسیٰ سے پڑا تھا اور یہ دو بھائی تھے ایک کا نام جودھو موسیٰ اور دوسرے کا نام وریا موسیٰ تھا۔ جودھو موسیٰ چھوٹا تھا اور وریا موسیٰ بڑا بھائی تھا اور ان دونوں کی ہی زیادہ زرعی ملکیت تھی اور اسی وجہ سے ان بھائیوں کے نام پر دو گاوں وجود میں آئے موسیٰ خورد اور ساتھ والا گاؤں موسیٰ کلاں.
قیام پاکستان کے بعد ہندو اور سکھ یاتری ہندوستان ہجرت کرگئے اور زیادہ آبادی نقل مکانی کر گئی باقی مسلمان رہ گئے۔ آج بھی اس گاؤں میں قیام پاکستان کے پہلے کی کافی عمارات موجود ہیں جو اپنے وقت کا پتہ بتاتی ہیں اور دیکھنے کے قابل ہیں.
