He was the son of Mir Ali Murad Talpur, the founder of Mirpurkhas, and was born in 1810. He was the last ruler of Talpurs who fought British General Charles Napier on 24 March 1843 at the battleground of Dubbo to liberate Sindh from British domination; after the Baloch forces lost the battle he and his men armed with muskets retreated into the rural areas where they began insurgencies against the British invaders, in fact it was Charles James Napier who invented the term: "Counter-Insurgency".

The Royal Talpurs of Sindh are those Balochs of Arabian descent who ruled Sindh from late eighteenth century to about mid nineteenth century. Although their rule was relatively short, spanned over about little less than a quarter of a century, they have remained influential throughout history since sixteenth century, when one of the Hoth Baloch's descendant adopted the surname Talpur, to the present times. From Balochistan, where they started ruling since Mir Jalal Khan who established a state spread over Siestan and parts of Balochistan, they moved to Dera Ghazi Khan and then migrated to Sindh, where not only they ruled, they merged with the Sindhi culture and became true patriotic Sindhi warriors and freedom fighters.


During the British occupation of Sindh, although Talpurs of Khairpur Mirs supported westerners, the other Talpurs continued their covert struggle for the independance of Sindh.

Talpurs were tolerant and peace loving rulers and stories of their philanthropy and charity are still told widely by the elders of the Sindh. The religious tolerance they shown was exemplary. Hindus, Muslims, Sikh and other religious communities lived happily and peacefully in Sindh during Talpur Mirs times. Although they were very religious Muslims, they were not intolerant. They not merely built mosques but also Hindu Temple. One such old Hindu temple, reconstructed and renovated by Talpur Mirs still exists in original condition in the town named Halani, in Sindh
