Moazzam says butt i know many families residing in punjab, Pakistan using Khan as surname and they are migrated from Kashmir. many families were taken this surname, as they were not qualified to take land owner ship or doing jobs outside kashmir and in punjab and other parts of indian sub continent. many families when converted to Islam given up surnames like; pandit and preferred adopting name like Khan, shaikh,Malik and so on, which were common in muslim community. many families when converted took same name after their peers.Professor Ghulam Akbar Malik finding is that Butt and Bhatti are the sons of one raja some Salhivan???
