Fatehpur is a village in Gopalganj district (near Hathwa) of Bihar
state, India. It is located between Mirganj and Kateya, near the
Sabeyan Airport. Fatehpur is one of the 1365 villages, that were under
Hathwa Raj Zamindari.
Fatehpur is famous for its
Pathan population. It is also
famous for Dargaah of Fateh Dewaan Dada (from where it gets its name)
and the Shiv Mandir near Deoor Pond. Fatehpur has mixed population of
Hindus and Muslims. Scholars from Fatehpur visited United States and
U.K. for higher education. Fatehpur has three local markets: Badka
Gaon, Line Bazaar and Peooli. Maulana Manzar Imam is one the famous
personalities of Fatehpur, with followers across India.
This village lacks the basic infrastructure. The nearest Hospital is
almost 7 km, in the Sub-division Hathwa. Same is the case with
nearest Secondary School and Degree College. Being far from NH-28,
this place is not very well connected to the nearest railway station
in Siwan. Fatehpur has some near and far relatives of 2 ex Chief
Ministers of Bihar, namely, Lalu Yadav and Rabari Devi. Besides being
related to the ex CMs, this village did not get its due. The
irrigation system of this village has collapsed way back, with the
fall of Congress govt in Bihar. Now, the farmers here are forced to
rely only on rains. Due to lack of proper medical facilities, many
uncertain deaths are reported each year from this village.
