Gujjar Tribe

Origin

The origins of the Gurjars are uncertain. The Gurjara clan appeared in northern India about the time of the Huna invasions of northern India. Some scholars, such as V. A. Smith, believed that the Gujjars were foreign immigrants, possibly a branch of Hephthalites (“White Huns”). D. B. Bhandarkar (1875-1950) believed that Gujars came into India with the Hunas, and the name of the tribe was sanskritized to “Gurjara”. He also believed that several places in Central Asia, such as “Gurjistan”, are named after the Gujars and that the reminiscences of Gujar migration is preserved in these names. General Cunningham identified the Gujjars with Yuezhi or Tocharians.

In the past, Gujjars have also been hypothesized to be descended from the nomadic Khazar tribes, although the history of Khazars shows an entirely different politico-culture ethosThis argument is chiefly based on the assumption that the word “Gujjar” is derived from the word “Khazar”; the Indo-Aryan languages lacked the sounds “kh” and “z”, converting them respectively into “g” and “j”. In Gazetteer of Bombay Presidency, the British civil servant James M. Campbell identified Gujars with Khazars.

Some Gujjars also claim that the Gujjar caste is related to the Chechens and the Georgians, and argue that Georgia was traditionally called “Gujaristan” (actually Gorjestan).[7][8] Some of them also claim that Germans are Gujjars. However, there is no evidence for such claims. The word “Georgia” derived from the Arabic and Persian word Gurj, and not Gujjar or Gurjar.

Gujjar rulers
The Gurjara-Pratihara kingdom and other contemporary kingdoms.

According to some historical accounts, the kingdom with capital at Bhinmal (or Srimal) was established by the Gujjars. A minor kingdom of Bharuch was the offshoot of this Kingdom. In 640-41 CE, the Chinese traveller Xuanzang (Hieun Tsang) described the kingdoms of Su-la-cha (identified with Saurashtra) and Kiu-che-lo (identified with Gurjara) in his writings. He stated that the Gurjaras ruled a rich and populous kingdom with capital at Bhinmal (Pilo-mo-lo).According to his expositor, M. Vivien de St. Martin, Su-la-cha represents the modern Gujarat, and Kiu-che-lo (Gurjjara), “the country of the Gujars”, represents the region between between Anhilwara and the Indus River.

Vincent Smith believed that the Pratihara dynasty, which ruled a large kingdom in northern India from the 6th to the 11th centuries, and has been mentioned as “Gurjara-Pratiharas” in an inscription, was certainly of Gurjara origin. Smith also stated that there is possibility of other Agnikula Rajput clans being of same origin.Dr. K. Jamanadas also states that the Pratihara clan of Rajputs descended from the Gujjars, and this “raises a strong presumption that the other Rajput clans also are the descendants from the Gurjaras or the allied foreign immigrants”. D. B. Bhandarkar also believed that Pratiharas were a clan of Gujjars. In his book The Glory that was Gujardesh (1943), Gurjar writer K. M. Munshi stated that the Pratiharas, the Paramaras and the Solankis were imperial Gujjars.

However, some other historians believe that although some sections of the Pratiharas (eg. the one to which Mathanadeva belonged) were Gujjars by caste, the imperial Pratiharas of Kannauj were not Gujjars and there was no Gurjara empire in Northern India. H. A. Rose and Denzil Ibbetson stated that there is no conclusive proof that the Agnikula Rajput clans are of Gurjara origin; they believed that there is possibility of the indigenous tribes adopting Gurjara names, when their founders were enfiefed by Gurjara rulers.

Over the years, the Gurjars were assimilated mainly into the castes of Kshatriya varna, although some Gurjar groups (such as Gaur Gurjars of central India) are classified as Brahmins. During the Muslim conquest in the Indian subcontinent, many of the Gurjar Hindus converted to Islam.

British rule

In the eighteenth century, several Gujjar chieftains and small kings were in power. During the reign of Rohilla Nawab Najib-ul-Daula, Dargahi Singh, the Gujjar chieftain of Dadri possessed 133 villages at a fixed revenue of Rs. 29,000. A fort at Parlchhatgarh in Meerut District, also known as Qila Parikishatgarh, is ascribed to a Gujjar Raja Nain Singh. According to a legend, the fort was built by Parikshita and restored by Nain Singh in the eighteenth century. The fort was dismantled in 1857, to be used as a police station.

The Imperial Gazetteer of India states that throughout the Indian Rebellion of 1857, the Gujars and Musalman (Muslim) Rajputs proved the “most irreconcilable enemies” of the British in the Bulandshahr area. A band of rebellious Gujjars ransacked Bulandshahr after a revolt by the 9th Native Infantry on May 21, 1857. The British officers initially left for Meerut but later sent a small force to retake the town. The British forces were able to retake the town with the help of Dehra Gurkhas, but the Gujars rose again after the Gurkhas marched off to assist General Wilson’s column in another area. Under the leadership of Walidad Khan of Malagarh, the British garrison was driven out the district. Walidad Khan held Bulandshahr from July to September, until he was expelled after an engagement with Colonel Greathed’s flying column. On October 4, the Bulandshahr District was regularly occupied by the British Colonel Farquhar and measures of repression were adopted against the armed Gujars.

During the revolt of 1857, the Muslim Gujars in the villages of the Ludhiana District showed dissent to the British authorities. The British interests in Gangoh city of Saharanpur District were threatened by the rebel Gujars under the self-styled Raja Fathua. These Gujars rebels were defeated by the British forces under H. D. Robertson and Lieutenant Boisragon, in June 1857. The Gujars of Chundrowli rose against the British, under the leadership of Damar Ram. The Gujars of Shunkuri village, numbering around three thousand, joined the rebel sepoys. According to British records, the Gujars plundered gunpowder and ammunition from the British and their allies. In Delhi, the Metcalfe House was sacked by the Gujjar villagers from whom the land was taken to erect the building. The British records claim that the Gujars carried out several robberies. Twenty Gujars were reported to have been beheaded by Rao Tula Ram for committing dacoities in July 1857. In September 1857, the British were able to enliist the support of many Jats and Gujars at Meerut.

The British classified the Gujjars (and around 150 other Indian communities) as “criminal tribe” through the Criminal Tribes Act, 1871 (later repealed by the Government of independent India in 1952). Some believe that the British classified the nomadic tribes as “criminal tribes” because they considered these tribes to be prone to criminality in the absence of legitimate means of livelihood, and also because of their participation in the revolt of 1857.The Imperial Gazetteer of India stated that the Gujars were impoverished due to their “lawlessness in the Mutiny”, and that the Gujars in Delhi had a “bad reputation as thieves”.

During the World War II, several Gujjars served in the British Indian army. Kamal Ram, a Gujjar sepoy, was awarded the Victoria Cross for gallantry.

Demographics

Gujjars are mainly concentrated in the Indo-Gangetic plains, the Himalayan region, and eastern parts of Afghanistan, although the Gujjar diaspora is found in other places as well. A majority of Gujjars follow Hinduism and Islam, though small Gujjar communities following other religions exist.

Gujari (or Gojri), classified under Rajasthani[32], has traditionally been the primary language of the Gujjars. But, Gujjars living in different areas speak several other languages including Urdu, Hindi, Punjabi, Pothohari , Pahari languages (such as Dogri and Kangri), Pashto language, Dardic languages (such as Kashmiri and Khowar), and Balti.

Gujjars in India

In India, Gujjar populations are found mainly in Delhi, Jammu and Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh, Punjab, western Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, northern Madhya Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Rajasthan, Gujarat and Maharashtra. The semi-nomadic Gujjar groups are found in the states of Jammu and Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh, and north-western Uttar Pradesh.The name for the state of Gujarat has derived from “Gurjar”.

Gujjars in North India are now considered as a vote bank by some political parties. Rajesh Pilot was a major Gujjar leader in North India. The Gujjars were classified as a Scheduled Tribe in Himachal Pradesh and Jammu & Kashmir, and as Other Backward Class in Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh.

Delhi

Gujjars are mainly found in delhi: that includes [Tanwar] [8 Villages],MAVI 5 Village [ambavata](4 villages), Bhati (24 Villages) [dedha](24 villages),[basoya](6 villages),[vidhudi],[rexwal] Bosatta(2 villages)

Haryana

The main gotras of Gurjars found in the Faridabad District of Haryana include Bhadana (14 villages), Mavi (10 Village) in Badka Teh PalwalNagar (84 villages), Baisla (10 village), Phagna(1 Village) and Poswal (3 village). The Bhadana gotra in Faridabad District launched an anti-dowry campaign in 2002. The community set elaborate guidelines for solemnizing marriages and holding other functions.[36] In a mahapanchayat (“the great panchayat”), the Gujjar community decided that those who sought dowry would be excommunicated from the society. Brigadier Hem Chan Nagar, born in village Tigaon in Ballabhgarh Tehsil of Faridabad district was the first brigadier among the Gurjar Community.

Jammu and Kashmir

In Jammu and Kashmir, the concentration of Gujjars is observed in the districts of Rajouri and Poonch, followed by, Ananatnag, Udhampur and Doda districts.[38] It is believed that Gujjars migrated to Jammu and Kashmir from Gujarat (via Rajasthan) and Hazara district of NWFP.[39] Another group called Bakarwal (or Bakerwal or Dhangar) belongs to the same ethnic stock as the Gujjars, and inter-marriages freely take place among them.

The Gujjars and the Bakarwals in Jammu and Kashmir were notified as the Scheduled Tribes vide the Constitution (Scheduled Tribes) Order (Amendment) Act, 1991.According to the 2001 Census of India, Gujjar is the most populous scheduled tribe in J&K, having a population of 763,806. Around 99.3 per cent population of Gujjar and Bakarwal in J&K follow Islam.

In 2002, some Gujjars and Bakarwals in J&K demanded a separate state (Gujaristan) for Gujjar and Bakerwal communities, under the banner of India Gujjar Parishad.

Van Gujjars

The Van Gujjars (“forest Gujjars”) are found in the Shivalik hills area of North India. The Van Gujjars follow Islam, and they have their own clans, similar to the Hindu gotras.[41] They are a pastoral semi-nomadic community, practising transhumance. In the winter season, the Van Gujjars migrate with their herds to the Shiwalik foothills, and in summer, they migrate to pastures high up in the mountains. The Van Gujjars have had conflicts with the forest authorities, who prohibited human and livestock populations inside a reserved park, and blamed the Van Gujjar community for poaching and timber smuggling. After the creation of the Rajaji National Park (RNP), the Van Gujjars in Deharadun were asked to shift to a resettlement colony at Pathari near Hardwar. In 1992, when the Van Gujjars returned to the foothills, the RNP authorities tried to block them from the park area. The community fought back and finally the forsest authorities had to relent Later, a community forest management (CFM) programme aiming to involve the Van Gujjars in forest management was launched.

Indian Punjab

Gujjars of punjab are mainly found in Nawanshahr, Hoshiarpur, Patiala, Fatehgarh, Mohali and Anandpur District. In this area, their villages are In heavy concentration. They are both hindu as well as sikh by religion. Their main profession is agriculture and business. They are called as chaudhary in the area. The last names of the Punjabi Gujjars include Kasana, Khepar, Kataria, Chaudhary, Bjarh, Chauhan, Bhumbla, Chandpuri, Chechi, Meelu, Hans, Bagri, khatana and others. The tradition of buffalo milk in Punjab can be attributed to the nomad Gujjars arriving in the Punjab plains with their live stock. There are old folk songs about Gujjar women selling milk in Punjabi villages and the nomad Gujjars displaying their livestock of buffaloes for sale. There are many Gujjar villages in Punjab (India) and most of these Gujjars are Sikhs. Even now, the nomad Gujjars come from Kashmir and sell their artifacts and livestock in Punjab. These nomad Gujjars are mostly Muslims just like their counterparts in Pakistan.

Rajasthan

In Rajasthan, some members of the Gujjar community resorted to violent protests over the issue of reservation in 2006 and 2007. During the 2003 Election to the Rajasthan assembly the BJP had promised the gujjars ST status as they had included the Jats as the OBC’s. This promise was not kept. In September 2006, the Gujjars organized violent protests, after the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) failed to keep its promise of including the community in the Scheduled Tribes (ST) category. In May 2007, during violent protests over the reservation issue, the members of the Gujjar community clashed with the police twenty six people (including two policemen). Subsequently, the Gujjars protested violently, under various groups including the Gujjar Sangarsh Samiti, Gujjar Mahasabha and the Gujjar Action Committee The protestors blocked roads and set fire to two police stations and some vehicles.[48] Presently, the Gurjars in Rajasthan are classified as Other Backward Classes (OBCs).

On June 05, 2007 the Gujjar rioted over their desire to be added to the governments of India list of tribes who are given preference in India government job selection as well as placement in the schools sponsored by the states of India. This preference is given under a system designed to help India’s poor and disadvantaged citizens. However, other tribes on the list oppose this request as it would make it harder to obtain the few positions already set aside.

In December 2007, the Akhil Bhartiya Gujjar Mahasabha (“All-India Gurjar Council”) stated that the community would boycott BJP, which is in power in Rajasthan.

In early 2000s, the Gujjar community in Rajasthan was also in news for the falling sex ratio, unavailability of brides and the resulting polyandry.

Uttar Pradesh

In Uttar Pradesh, the Gurjar populations are found mainly in the western U.P. region i.e. Saharanpur, Muzaffarnagar, Meerut, Bijnor, Moradabad, Ghaziabad, Noida, Bulandshahar, and Bareilly. To a fewer extent, they are also found in Rampur, Agra and Bundelkhand. The most common gotras are Adhana, Chaudhry, Mundan, Khubbad, Chhokar, Kalsiyan, Chauhan, Poswal, Rathi, Chechi, Panwar, Bhati, Baisla, Tomar, Kasana, Karhana, Bhadana and Nagar, Harshaiana,Payale{,Chawda { Hukam Singh{} . Generally, the Gurjars in western U.P. and N.C.R. are well-off; their economy depends on agriculture, milk trade and production, and to a minor extent, real estate.

Madhya Pradesh

According to the British records, the Gujjar population in Central India was around 56,000 in 1911. Most of these Gujjars were concentrated in the Nimar and Hoshangabad regions of the Narmada vallery. Most of these were migrants from the Gwalior region, while some of the Gujjars in Nimar area were immigrants from Gujarat.Presently, the Gurjars in Madhya Pradesh are classified as Other Backward Classes (OBCs)..

Gujarat and Maharashtra

A few scholars believe that the Leva Kunbis (or Kambis) of Gujarat, a section of the Patidars, are possibly of Gujjar origin.[55][. However, several others state that the Patidars are Kurmis or Kunbis (Kanbis).; the National Commission for Backward Classes of India lists Leva Patidars (or Lewa Petidars) as a sub-caste of Kunbis/Kurmis. Dode Gujar and Dore Gujar are listed as separate caste in Maharastra and Gujjar are included in OBC list in Gujarat but Patidars are not. Most of Patidar associations clearly mention in their history that they are the part of Kurmi Samaj.

Among Marathas, one of the major clans is called “Gujar”[68]. Prataprao Gujar was the third royal Sarnaubat (Commander-in-chief) of Maratha ruler Shivaji’s army. Sidhoji Gujar was a notable admiral in Shivaji’s navy. The Khandesh region in Maharashtra has a sizable Gujjar population, the major sub-castes being Dode Gujar, Leva Gujar, Bad Gujar etc.

A community using Gurjar and Gurjarpadhye as their surnames resides in the coastal Konkan region of Maharashtra, inhabiting Pangre, Hasol, and other villages in Ratnagiri District. Originally bearing the name “Gurjarpadhye”, many now prefer to call themselves Gurjar. The community may have been living in the Konkan region for at least three centuries, although this estimate may be inaccurate. The community is a sub-caste of the larger Karhade Brahmin group and speaks the Marathi language. This community might be a part of the bigger Gujjar community. However, it is difficult to explain how they settled down in the Konkan region and are Brahmins rather than Kshatriyas. Local pandits claim that the Gurjars are essentially a priestly community and that it is only the subcastes that assumed Kshatriya status in order to earn a livelihood in other more practical professions.

Gujjar are also found in some clans of Kshtriya Dhangar. Dode Gujar and Dore Gujar are listed as separate caste in Maharastra and are included in OBC list in Maharashtra.

There are also one another separate caste in Maharashtra called as “Reve Gujars” Dode Gujars and Reve Gujars speaks a special kind of language called as “Gujari”.

Gujjars in Pakistan

Gujjars have given their names to several places in Pakistan, including Gujranwala, Gujjar Nallah, Gujar Khan, Gojra and Gujrat. Stephen M. Lyon of University of Kent has written about what he calls “Gujarism”, the act of Gujars seeking out other Gujars to form associations, and consolidate ties with them, based strictly on caste affiliation.


Pakistan Administered Kashmir

There are many prominent Gujjar families in the Pakistan Administered Kashmir region, in the following places: Dadyal, Mirpur, Bhalot (Mirpur), Mandi Village (Ddayal), Saliyeh Village (Ddayal), Kund (Dadyal), Kotli (Khoi Ratta, Anderla Kothera, Shaheen Abad, Dakkhana, Phalini, Khor, Ghayeen, Kerjai, Barali Gala, Nidi Sohana, Nakyal, Chooroi, Sehnsa), Bagh (Haveli), Bura Jungle, Muzaffarabad and Neelum District.

    GUJARS : A Warrior Tribe Who Inflicted Collosol Loss To The USSR

    GUJJARS : The 2nd Largest Ethinic & Linguistic Entity Of Afghanistan

    By: Ch. M. Ashraf Gujjar,
    Islamabad, Pakistan.

    The U.S.A. and her allied countries had propounded the idea of a broad-based Government in Afghanistan, comprising of all the ethnic and linguastic groups. The western countries had false perception about the exact ethnic and linguastic division of Afghanistan. It was mistakenly believed that the Afghnistan is ethnically devided into Pushtoons and Persian speaking Northern alliance. The U.S.A. and its allies, while forming the present Karzai Government in Afghanistan, absolutely ignored the second largest and major ethnic Gujjar community. The Gujjars constitutes to be the 35% of Afghanistan’s total population.
    2. The Gujjar is the largest tribe of the World, which is admittedly recognized to be the major ethnic group in Pakistan, India, Indo-Pak held Jammu & Kashmir, Xing Xiang(China), Tibet, Nepal, Bhuttan, Sakkum, Bangladesh, Afghanistan, Georgia and other Central Asian States. The Gujjars can rightly be termed as an International tribe, who are not restricted and confined by the frontiers or borders.
    3. There is much known about the Gujjars dwelling in almost all parts of India and Pakistan. There population in India and Pakistan is 20 & 03-billion respectively. The Sub-Continent and Central Asia was ruled for centuries by the Gujjars, also known as Gurjars. It was during their rule that thousands of places were named after them or their sub-tribes in India, Pakistan, Iran, Afghanistan and Central Asian States. In Central and South Asia there are also numerous places named after the sub-clans of Gujjars, e.g. Chechania, Chechian, Jhanda Chechi, Kharian, New-Katarian, Panjan Kasana, Noon, Bhadana, Jhand Meelu, etc. etc. I am sure a list of such places, given at the end of this article, will be of great interest to realise that to what extent the Gujjars enjoyed power and influence in the Central & South Asia in the ancient times.
    4. The Gujjars of Afghanistan have always played a very important and significant role in Afghanistan. The Afghanistan is broadly divided into four major ethnic groups, i.e. (1)-Pushtoons 40%, (2)-Gujjars, speaking Gujari and other languages 35%, (3)-Persian speaking 10% and (4)-others 15% approximately. The over whelming and majority population of 14 Provinces of Afghanistan consists of Gujjar tribe, who generally speak Gujjari langauage. In some areas they also speak Pushto or Persian in addition to Gujjari langauage. This language is also spoken by the Gujjars of India and Pakistan. The Gujjarati, Daccani, Rajasthani, Mewati and mewarri, according to some scholars, are the regional names and dialects of Gujjari language. A brief and approximate account of Gujjar population in some of the Afghan-Provinces is given hereunder:-
    i) Kunnarr : This province is situated in the south of Afghanistan and
    in the North of Pakistan. The Gujjar tribe is living with over-whelming majority in this Province. The famous towns and villages of the Gujjars are Narrai, Asmar, Hari Kot, Tashagul, Konigul, Gorin, Inchagal, Samsagal, Karchigal, Bazagal, Batash, Hegal and Asoom, etc.
    ii) Lughman : Its more than 50% population consists of Gujjar tribe.
    There are approximately 45-villages having hundred percent Gujjar population.
    iii) Panjsher : The Gujjars constitutes 40% population of this Province.
    Perkhar and Wersak towns are the famous strong-holds of the Gujjars.
    iv) Badakhshan : The Gujjars constitutes half of the population of this
    Province. The Bajjarr, Chauhan, Bherwal, Jangle, Bhaddana, Kohli, Doei and Bokarra are the famous sub-tribes/clans of Gujjars living in this Province.
    v) Kondos : The ¾ population of this Province consists of Gujjar tribe.
    vi) Farkhar : More than 90% population of this Province belongs to the
    Gujjar community. The Dashtiachi, Namakao, Khestazi and Khefdar, etc. are the famous towns & villages of the Gujjar tribe.
    vii) Mazar Sharif : In this Province over 30% population consists of
    Gujjar community.
    viii) Baglan : In this Province over 40% population belongs to the Gujjar
    caste.
    ix) Aneshkamesh : The 70% population of this Province is consisted of
    Gujjar tribe.
    x) Palol : The Gujjar is a majority tribe of this Province. The Gujjar
    commanders Mr. Ghulam Sakhi Khattana and Mr.Fardol Khatana, the militant leaders of Harkat-e-Islamia Afghanistan also belonged to this Province. They inflicted collosal loss to the enemy during the cold-war.
    xi) Andraf : The Gujjars constitues ¾ population of this Province. The
    Gujjar Generals Moman Bherwal and Mr. Arbab Therwal Malang, the militant Gujjar Commanders of Hizb-e-Islami belonged to this province. These Generals earned lot of name and recognition during the cold-war.
    xii) Taloqan : The Gujjars forms half of the population of the Province.
    Mr. Arbab Hakeem Chechi, the Supreme Gujjar Commander of Hizb-e-Islami also belonged to this Province. He also earned world wide recognition during the cold war.
    xiii) Shabargan : The Gujjars are 1/3 of the total population of this
    Province.

    5. The Gujjars are also living with a prominent sizeable minority in the following Provinces of Afghanistan : –
    i Nangarhar,
    ii Kabul,
    iii Logar,
    iv Qandhar,
    v Gazni,
    vi Kapisa,
    vii Gardez,
    viii Tamroze, and
    ix Harat.
    6. The Gujjars played a leading role in war (Jehad) against the U.S.S.R. since beginning in the year 1979. Mir Afzal Chechi of Kunnarr Province was one of the leading founders to organise and start the war(Jehad) to liberate Afghanistan from the clutches of U.S.S.R., who also sacrificed his life for the sacred cause. Malik Sher Afzal and Malik Qabeel of Kunnarr Province also significantly contributed towards organizing the war and Jehad against the U.S.S.R.
    7. The following militant leaders of various Jahadi organizations, who fought against the U.S.S.R., also belonged to the Gujjar tribe of Afghanistan:-
    i) Dr.M.Abdul Qayyum, Founder, Hizb-e-Islami
    ii) Maulana M.Younas Khalis Quaid, Hizb-e-Islami
    iii) Muhammad Ayub, Amir, Tanzeem Ahl-e-Hadith
    iv) Ghulam Chechi, Commander Hizb-e-Islami
    v) Mauland Akhawandzada Commander Harkat-e-Islami
    vi) Nadir Khan Commander Harkat-e-Islami
    vii) Arbab Mian Gul Chechi Commander Jamaat-e-Islami
    viii) Haji Zardali Commander Hizb-e-Islami
    ix) Haji Daim Khan Commander Tanzeem Ahl-e-Hadith
    x) Musafar Khan Commander Hizb-e-Islami
    xi) Maulana Umra Khan Commander Hizb-e-Islami
    xii) Haji Badam Khan Commander Mahaz-e-Milli
    xiii) Mir Alam Commander Jamat-e-Islami
    xiv) Malik Sadbar Commander Hizb-e-Islami
    xv) Maulana Kaduaali Amir Islami Hizb
    xvi) Mirza Lal Doei Commander Jamat-e-Islami
    xvii) Madir Gujjarwal Commander Harkat-e-Islami
    xviii) Malik Jabeen Chechi Commander Hizb-e-Islami
    xix) Malik Shireen Commander Hizb-e-Islami
    xx) Malik Maasal Commander Hizb-e-Islami
    xxi) Hazrat Bilal Sher Commander Harkat-e-Islami
    xxii) Malik Gul Sharif Commander Tanzeem Ahl-e-Hadith
    8. The thousands of Gujjar Mujahideens sacrificed their lives while fighting against USSR during the period of cold war. A large number of Gujjars had to migrate to Pakistan and other neighbouring countries during and after the cold-war. The majority of Gujjar migratees were living in Bhai Cheena Camps, Anayat Kaley Camps in Bajorr Agency, Dodaba Camps and Ranrri Camps in Dir district of Pakistan.
    9. The culture, language, customs and traditions of the Gujjars are entirely different than the pushtoon ethnic stock. The Gujjars of Afghanistan speaks Gujjari language, the language that also spoken in most of the areas of India & Pakistan and enjoys representation on a number of state owned Radio and Television channels in both the countries.
    10. It will be worth mentioning that the Pushto speaking population do not belong to one community, tribal or racial group rather they are devided into Shanwaris, Afridis, Safis, Khattaks, Mashwanis and Yousafzais, etc. etc., who are foes and not friends as they keeps fighting with each other, whereas, on the contrary the Gujjars of Afghanistan belongs to one racial and tribal group unlike Pushtoons, who are just a linguistic group.
    11. The over 30-Million Gujjars in Pakistan and 20-Billion Gujjars in India had extended their implied and unconditional support to the notion of forming the broad based Afghan-Government comprising of all the ethnic groups and communities in Afghanistan so to bring the perpetual peace in Afghanistan.
    12. It was expected that the Gujjars being the second largest ethnic and linguistic community certainly was to be considered as a significant constitutent in broad-based government as by ignoring the Gujjars neither any government can function as a representative establishment nor that could be a workable or perpetual solution to the growing problems of Afghanistan. The U.S.A., U.K. and Pakistan Governments should have derived an acceptable formula giving due representation to the Gujjars of Afghanistan.
    13. The worrior & majority Gujjar tribe has not been given any representation while forming the present Afghan Government, the result is obvious, the writ of present Afghan-Government could hardly be established within the radious of only two Kilo meter area and more specifically speaking within the Presidential Compound under the guard and security of Allied forces. They are the brave Gujjars only who can restrict and confine the war-lords into their cloths and can bring the perpetual peace in Afghanistan. These Gujjars of Afghanistan also enjoys the unshaken support of 23-billion Gujjars of Pakistan and India in special and millions of Gujjars settled all over the world in common. Its in the larger interest that Allied Forces, in order to bring the perpetual peace in Afghanistan, may even now draw a strategy to form a true representative Aghan-Government.
    The royal-Gujjars have ruled the South-Central Asia for centuries and it was during their kingdoms that they had named thousands of places. No other tribe can compete the Gujjars on this account. In the wake of recent unrest amongst the Gujjars of Rajisthan in India, which has been termed as the ‘Desert Storm By The Gujjars, an interesting discussion is going on these days as to who the Gujars, Gujjars or Gurjars are? I am mentioning a few name of some places, which will help the historians, anthrapologist and anaylst to ascertain the major and important role played by them in present and past history and the politics of these regions. The visitors of this site are allowed to forward this article to the other web-sites for befitting conclusion about the Gujjars’ history and their role in the present-age :-

      • varun says:

        But the fact is that the Muslim gujjars of today are muslims because at some point of time in history their ancestors who were Hindus were the ones who gave the biggest sacrifice to save Hinduism from the islamic invaders. So when they were defeated, the muslims forced the Gujjars to accept islam with a vengeance. and then as they were vanquished they did not have any choice than to accept islam. So it surprises me how the gujjars who are not hindus are proud to be muslims. They need to come back to their original religion mother religion by discarding the religion which was painfully imposed on their ancestors. Dont say though we are of different religion we are one, we have always sacrificed for Hinduism and it is an insult to our ancestors and their sacrifices if we dont make any effort to bring back our brothers back into Hinduism and make them realize that Islam is not a religion they must be proud of but angry at and ashamed of to still be proud to be a muslim.

    There is a lewa gurjar community in the Nandurbar district of Maharashtra . Especially the Shahada tehsil has a sufficient population . These people are Pure vegetarians and thier occupation is Farming. They mainly cultivate Sugarcane, Banana, Cotton, Maize, and other crops . The Gurjars here have abolished Dowry in thier society and not only are thier boys doing a great job in education but also thier girls are today good doctors engineers and are well setteled not only in India but also abroad .
    History – This Community migrated from the Kheda District of Gujrath AFTER THE 12TH OR 13TH Century and settled on the Banks of TAPI River .starting from Nizar Tehsil of Surat District of Gujrath to the Nandurbar district of Maharashtra. Nad moved forward up to the Jalgaon disict of Maharashtra from where the Tapi flows Westward towards Nandurbar Distict .

      Dear Mr. Sunil Patil, i appreciate your dilema & advise you that first start using your name as Sunil Patel.& if time permits confirm the language your parents, Grand parents speak at Home. I am sure you are again in dilema that which language they speak , is it Gujari or Gujarathi?. if you try to read any newpaper In Gujarathi you will find that your parents/ grand parents speak pure Gujarathi with regional Accent . the accent is adapted from the local Ahirani/ Marathi speaking population. hence do not worry , we are farming community & day in day out we live & interact with this community for farming activity , that is how we imbibed this accent. plz get yourself first convinced & adopt the Gujarathi. shed this PK Patil strategy for convinience we are Gujar but we originate from Kheda ( CHAROTAR ) Patel. this is the only way to get yourself recognised in the Globe & get some respect. all patels are Gurjar but They dont claim as Gurjar , they have adopted Leuva Patel as their Caste. try to be Patel. This is my view point & i am also facing the same dilema but ever since i have confirmed the linguistic & origin genuinness( khera-sojitra-anand-karamsad dist.) i have become well accepted Gujarathi. prior to this i use to say i am Maratha gujar Patil which is not truth.Nevertheless it is your choice. i have tried to explain the simple thing drifting the whole community towards wrong identity.

    • Hi Brothers and Sisters Especially CH. Azhar

      I was really astonished to see such a big community over the internet. I belong to the NWFP (Now called Khyber Pakhtoon Khwah) from Swat district. You might not know that a very big community of pure Gujjars are living in Swat Valley roughly 65% of the total population. Please, also update this news in your post and also add that people belong to this area are very poor and unaware of the fact that Gujjar is the biggest tribe in Asia. They have been marginalised by the other tribes in Swat Valley and are leading very miserable life.It is like a shame for someone,in Swat Valley, to be called a Gujjar.They are supposed to be the inferior caste living in this area with all respects and in the recent Swat War they were the main targets of Pak Army and ISI .They were used in this so-called war very badly .

      I request all the brothers (especially in Pak & India) to please, make a special site for this tribe in order to unite and work for the betterment of Gujjars.
      Please, do contact me in this regard……. also have a look of this beautiful valley in order to know more about it.

    Dear All,

    I shower accolades initially on Ch. Ashraf Advocate for the efforts he has made in collecting invaluable nitty-gritty info on gujjar tribe, and then my heart also quivers with all of my gujjar brothers and sisters who have very enthusiastically contributed to this blog.

    Thanks to this web-based communication, we can do lots of service to our community when it comes to disseminating awareness among the gujjars on how they can make their present worse-off situation better (especially factoring in the glory and grandeur which used to be synonymous with the adjective ‘Gujjar’).

    To me, it is about time that the affluent members of our community started doing something substantial for the betterment of our community. A mere rhetoric won’t do!!!

    The succour and help to be extended to our community can take many forms. But, before I jot down something on ‘how to’, I seek for the valuable suggestions to be made by my brothers and sisters.

    Look forward to hearing soon!

Medical college Srinangar but presently working in Saudi Arabia as consultant histopathlogist.Recently i have written a book on Gujjars of Kashmir vally in urdu but hopefully it will be translated in English too for wider circulation.I highly appreciate the work of our youth across the line of religion to restore the lost glory of Gujjars.

I am Munendra singh Kasana gurjjar.the highest and the most war like Gurjar gotra.other goras of guru jars r inferior.my uncle was a minister in Uttar pradesh govt. his name was mandleswar singh(M.L.A) kheragarh constituency Agra.i feel pity for Muslim guru jars because they r considered inferior jats and pastuns,in our place we r just 10000 thousand out of 3lack votes. Rajputs 75000,jats20000,pandits65000.par hum sabki band bajate hai.we r war like people.1st generation has to die as martyr to establish war like attitude for the next generation.
