I dont no why from these indian HINDUS got our family name , KHATTAK are 100 percent sunni muslims , They lived in PAKISTAN ,There home land is NWFP,PUNJAB. Alot of more loved in other provinces as well .Nowshera,Kohat,Waziristan,Peshawer,Mianwali,these are the places where they lived,they are hard working people and the sons of KHUSAL KHAN KHATTAK. So let this clear that there is no HINDU / Indian khattak. They call there selves as KHATTAK but they are not . AKHPALA KHAWARA AKHPAL AKHTIAR . NAH MANO DA ABAL AKHTIAR.
