Sarkar Mir Sohrab Khan Talpur ‘Ali Jah, Huzur Pur Nur, Wali-i-Mulk-i-Khudadad
Rais-ul-Umara [of Northern Sindh]
He was the eldest son of Mir Chakar Khan Talpur, the granduncle of Mir Fateh Ali Khan Talpur, the Rais-ul-Umara of Southern Sindh.
Mir Sohrab Khan Talpur established his dominance in the Upper Sindh 1783 and set up his capital at Burahan, which he renamed Khairpur in 1786.
He spread his influence northward to Kashmore and Subzalkot (now in Bahawalpur), Mithankot (now in Punjab), south to Naushahro Feroze, and southeast to Jodhpur by 1791.
He played an instrumental role in expelling Afghans from the Sindh region. Finally, they were forced out of Shikapur in 1823. A joint control was nominally allowed over the city, with sovereign control over the areas on the north, west, and east of the city. King of Afghanistan recognized him by the title of Shah-i-Na’azir-i-Sindh.
He died after falling from a window of his palace in Khairpur Mirs in 1830. He left behind six sons.
