Nawab Jassi Khan is said to be the legendary founding father of the Sudhan people and traditionally believed to have founded the region of Sudhanoti.

Sudhan tribe links their forefathers Qais Abdur Rashid, a prominent Sahabi and Nawab Jassi Khan was who Pashtun and came from Afghanistan via Dera Ismail Khan and landed in western part of Poonch along with his family members and battalion and fought for their existence, but the local people dominated them. In this period, they multiplied quickly and emerged into a strong and powerful tribe.[2] The Sudhans say that they are descendants of Jassi Khan, who was Pashtun. They first settled near Kotli, in the Murree hills. A tribe known as the Bagar held the opposite bank of the Jhelum and tyrannised over the Brahmans, who called in the Sudhans to their aid. The Sudhans having defeated the Bagars, seized their country and named it Sudhanoti, it was at this time that they took the name of Sudhan, which they had earned as a compliment to their valour from the Brahmans.[3]
