        Bhuttos originally migrated to Sindh in the early 18th century from the neighboring region of RAJ-PUT-A-NA now RAJA-STHAN in India). Bhutto's paternal ancestors were Hindu Rajputs, who converted to Islam in the late 17th century. Sheto was the first member of the Bhutto family, who converted to Islam, to reap tax exemptions for Muslims, during Mughal emperor Aurangzeb's reign. Following the conversion he took the ti-t-LE of khan becoming Sheto Khan. In Sindh, Bhuttos under Sheto first settled at Ratodero, a few miles north of Larkana.---Jai hind.
