History

Mailsi is one of the oldest parts of Multan. The region's name derives from the Malloi group which resided in Multan, but moved to the area near the Satluj river when Alexander attacked Multan. Subsequently, the Mallois moved north of the Satluj. The area was settled during the eighth century when Muhammad Bin Qasim attacked Multan. After the defeat of Prithviraj Chauhan in 1192 by Shahabuddin Ghori, members of his clan known as Khichi Chauhan migrated to Mailsi, where they acquired land and founded the villages of Shitab Garh, Sargana, Sheer Garh, Haleem Khichi, Aliwah, Tarki, Omar Khichi, Dhoda, and Fadda.

In 1881, a series of changes were made with the object of enlarging the Shujabad Tehsil and decreasing the Mailsi charge: sixty villages in the vicinity of Kahror Pakka were transferred from the Mailsi to the Lodhran Tehsil and in 1897, forty-six villages were transferred from Lodhran to Shujabad while 104 villages east of Kahror Pakka were shifted from Mailsi in compensation.
