The Lassani Asil is a very well known "line" of Asil in Pakistan. They are a medium type of fast free kicking line of Asil breed for the Pakistani artificial spurring game. I am mostly familiar with the black Lassani Asil. Very impressive Asil.
Please correct me or add more information King Quresh Sir.
Some information about the Lassani from my Asil book (Pakistan chapter) whioch I received from a Pakistani breeder......
A Pakistani Asil breeder also visited the city of Jehlum in the Punjab province in 2014 to undertake a survey regarding this famous Asil strain. He forwarded me the following information (citation).....The information that I discovered about the Lassani line is as follows. Raja Abbas,village Daulat,city of Jhelum went to visit a Pir Syed also spelt Sayyid ( Syed or Sayyid is a honorific title for descendants of the Prophet Mohammed peace be upon him) from whom he bought a pair of Aseel,the male was a mushka bihangam and the hen was peeli (ginger)colour. The pair were bred. Boa Suleman (Boa is a title of respect for males) bought a stag from Raja Abbas for a 1000 rupees. The stag was black with some red on his neck feathers and had a killi taj (comb).I am going to label this stag F1 for ease of explanation Ustad papa Lateef and Boa Suleman are both students of Ustad Aslam from whom they buy a cheeni ( spangle ) hen to go with the stag Boa Suleman bought of Raja Abbas. Boa Suleman bred them both and had 6 pullets and one stag. Papa Lateef takes the F1 stag from Boa Suleman and one of his daughters and breeds them. After having bred him,Papa Lateef returns the F1 male back to Boa Suleman,who sells it to Ustad Cheemi for 1500 rupees.Ustad Cheemi bred the F1 male to his hens,but did not achieve much success with the line. Newcastle disease wiped out most of Boa Suleman's line, apart from a couple of pullets. Ustad Papa Lateef got a Bihangam stag from his first breeding of the F1 stag and his daughter,he tested this stag against all the top Aseels of the time in Jhelum and his line hit a kari shots to every bird he sparred with and developed quite a reputation. He was then bred back to his mother and have been line bred ever since. At the time the daughter of the F1 male was running with a peela bird,she was laying and her eggs would get eaten. One day Ustad safdar came to papa Lateef's house and saw two eggs and inquired which hen did they belong to, after being told, he asked Papa Lateef for the two eggs. He took the eggs and from those eggs hatched two males, one black and one a teyla colour (dark red). Ustad safdar had a lot of success with those two birds in taped heel format of the game....(end of citation).

The beginning of wisdom is to call things by their right names
Bravo willem for the autentic reference refarding 'lasanis'. Ustad safdar's name is famously associated with lasani breed. It is to be kept in mind that this is amongst the rare type about which little information exists. Many breeders from pakistan claim to own this breed but, in fact, it still continues to be a distant dream of many. This breed is recognized with its short stature, broad chest, endurance in the game and their availability only in red or back colours.
At present, due to cross breeding, the popular opinion about lasani has been changed. I will appreciate anyone who truly owns the 'gem of a breed'. Pictures needed
