PURPORT
The phaujadara, or city magistrate, was called the kaji (Kazi). The jamidaras (Zamindars), or landholders (mandaleras), levied taxes on the land, but keeping law and order and punishing criminals was the duty entrusted to the Kazi. Both the Kazi and the landholders were under the control of the governor of Bengal, which at that time was known as Suba-bangala. The districts of Nadia, Islampura and Bagoyana were all under the Zamindar named Hari Hoda or his descendant known as Krsnadasa Hoda. It is said that Chand Kazi was the spiritual master of Nawab Hussain Shah. According to one opinion his name was Maulana Sirajuddina, and according to another his name was Habibara Rahamana. Descendants of Chand Kazi are still living in the vicinity of Mayapur. People still go see the tomb of Chand Kazi, which is underneath a campaka tree and is known as Chand Kazi's samadhi.
