Rohillasie Hillmen

Rohillas, i.e. "Hillmen" (from Roh, "Hill," "Mountain"), a collective name often applied to the Afghans of the Suleiman Mountains, but more especially to those who, during Mahmud of Ghazni's invasions of India, settled in the district north of Oude now called Rohilkand. Here they became very powerful and a standing menace to the peace of the land till their strength was broken by the English at the battle of Kabra in 1774. The account given by Macaulay of the British relations with the Rohillas (Essay on Warren Hastinys) is not trustworthy.
