Major Muslim Jat clans

Below are brief descriptions of the main Muslim Jat clans in the Punjab. I would also ask the reader to look at my posts Population of Muslim Jat clans of British Punjab according to the 1891 Census of India, Population of Muslim Jat Clans of British Punjab According to the 1911 Census of India and Population of Muslim Jat Clans of British Punjab According to the 1901 Census of India which gives the total population of the Muslim clans. According to 1901 Census, the ten largest tribes were the Wariach (58,936), Cheema (39,358), Bajwa (27,609), Chadhar (27,422), Sandhu (25,786),Tarar (25,606), Gill (19,894), Virk (19,703), Ghumman (16,893), Hanjra (15,892) and Bains (14,398). While according to the 1911 Census of Punjab, the ten largest were Wariach (66,392), Gondal (62,320), Cheema (37,076), Bhatti (35,289), Khokhar (33,032), Sandhu (32,632), Kharral (24,702), Bajwa (23,501), Gill (22,861) and Tarar (22,351). The appearence of the Gondals, who were all recorded as Rajput in 1901 shows the flexibilty of identity that existed between Muslim Jats and Rajputs. However, although boundaries were flexible, most of the larger Muslim clans such as the Wariach, Cheema, Sandhu, Gill and Bajwa have always registered themselves as Jats.

I would also ask the reader to look at my post about the Jat Population of Punjab According to the 1901 Census of India, which gives more information as to where the Jat were found in the Punjab. Although the Muslim Jat population was concentrated in Punjab, there were communities of Jat found in neighbouring provinces. The 1931 Census was the last one that collected information on caste in British India. According to that Census, the Muslim Jat population in undivided India was as follows; Punjab 2,941,395, Jammu and Kashmir 120,083, Baluchistan 77,157 North West Frontier Province 71,111, United Provinces 19,689, Delhi 1,517, and Rajputana 1,257. I would ask the reader to look at my post on the Population of Jat clans of Baluchistan according to the 1901 Census, which gives information on the Jat clans in that province.

Groups of Muslim Jats in the Punjab

The Jats formed the largest single community among the Muslims of Punjab. In 1901 for example, they numbered 1,962,252 out of a total population of 12,183,345. Colonial Punjab covered a very large area, and readers are asked to look at my post on the Population of Muslim Jat Clans of British Punjab According to the 1901 Census of India, which gives a description of the size of the area. The huge area that extended just east of Peshawar, and west of Delhi included a huge culture diversity. The Jat’s that have inhabited this region exhibit similar diversity. Rose, the colonial British ethnologist wrote the following about the Jats of Punjab:

The Jat is in every respect the most important of the Punjab peoples. In point of numbers he surpasses the Rajput, who comes next to him, in the proportion of nearly three to one. Politically he ruled the Punjab till the Khalsa yielded to our arms. Ethnologically he is the peculiar and most prominent product of the plains of the five rivers.

Writen over a hundred years, this still applies to the Jats, who more then most castes represent an important element of the rural culture of Punjab.

Muley Jats

Near Delhi, and what is now eastern Haryana, we had communities of Muley Jats, who spoke dialects of Haryanwi, and traditionally practiced clan exogamy. The correct pronounciation here is Jaat and not Jatt. Large clans among the Muley Jats included the Ahlawat, Bachhal, Beniwal, Gulia, Jhorar, Lochab, Malik or Ghatwala and Nain. Some clans such as the Chahal, Dhillon, Maan and Sandhu are found among both the Punjabi Jats and Haryanvi Muley Jats. There is also an overlap with Seraiki speaking Jats and those of Haryana, with the Bhojiya, Jakhar, Khor for example found among both groups. Most Muley Jats migrated to Pakistan at partition in 1947, and now found in Sindh and Punjab.

Punjabi Jats

The large central region, stretching from Ghaghar river  in the east to the Jhelum in the west was home to the Punjabi Jats. This region is also home to the Sikh Jats, with which the Muslim Punjabi Jats shared culture and traditions. Larger clans such as the Sandhu, Sidhu, Dhillon and Gill were also common among the Sikh Jats. Like the Muley Jats, the Punjabi Jats of eastern Punjab migrated to Pakistan.

Jats of Pothohar and the Bar

Beyond the Jhelum were the Jats of the Potohar plateau. These Jat were concentrated in the Gujar Khan and Jhelum regions, and belonged to a number of small clans, the largest being the Gondal, Dhamial and Kalyal. In south west of Punjab, in what was the Multan Division and Bahawalpur State lived a large number of clans, which spoke the Seraiki language, with many practising pastoralism. Most lived in the Bar, the uplands between the rivers of western Punjab. Important Seraiki speaking Jats include the Athangal, Lohanch, Samtia, Sandhila, Puar and Parhar. Among the Bar nomads, the Haral, Kharal, Lodike, Waseer, and Wagha were important tribes. Further north, the Bar nomads merged into the Punjabi Jats, and we have tribes such as the Bajwa, Basra, Cheema, Chatha, Gondal, Goraya, Nagra, Tarar and Virk, who were cultutaly close to both the Punjabi Jats and the Jats of the Bar. These tribes were largely Muslim, but had several sections that were Sikh.
