No Muslim family left Bhatner to go to Pakistan during the partition of India because the elders convinced them of peaceful co-existence. During the revolt of 1857 both Hindu and Muslim Bhatis fought with Britishers and sacrificed together. An example of recent days filmed in documentary related with 2017 Uttar Pradesh Legislative Assembly election. It was noticed that Hindu and Muslim voters were divided. But Hindu and the Muslim Bhatis combined together. Owing to this, for the first time after freedom, a Bhati Thakur candidate Dhirendra Singh has been elected from Jewar (Assembly constituency) seat. These voters, instead of being divided on the basis of Hindu and Muslim, voted comprehensively without being swayed. The effort is to bring the community together to voice their feelings unabashedly, and make the region a glaring example of progressive and culturally inclusive governance.[12][13][14][15]
