Population of Muslim Jat Clans of British Punjab According to the 1891 Census of India

In 1891 the total Jat population was 4,625,523, of which Muslim Jats numbered 1,771,034. I would also ask the reader to look at my posts on the Population of Muslim Jat Clans of British Punjab According to the 1901 Census of India and Population of Muslim Jat Clans of British Punjab According to the 1911 Census of India. Both these posts give a breakdown of the larger Jat clans. The process of counting up clans began with the 1891 Census. However only the 68 largest clans were enumerated separately, the rest simply declared miscellaneous. Deciding whether a clan was Jat or Rajput ended up being an arbitrary process. For example in the 1891 Census, the Gondals declared themselves all as Rajputs. while in 1901 a total of 2,508 declared themselves as Jats, while the majority of 36,088 declared themselves to be Rajput. By the 1911 Census, almost all Gondals, about 62,320 declared themselves as Jats, while a mere 31 declared themselves as Rajputs.

Bhangu, Jotah / Joota, Naul, Nonari and Sahu tribes

In this post, I shall be looking at tribes found not only in the Kirana Bar, but also in the Sandal and Neeli Bars. For example, the bulk of the Nonari and Sahu are settled in the Neeli Bar, but groups have left the parent tribe to settle in others parts, for example Jotah groups are found in Layyah District, while the Nonari country extends from the Indus to Sultlej. Almost all the tribes of have traditions of migration from Rajasthan, with an ancestor fleeing to the Bar, converted to Islam at the hands of a Sufi saint, and contracting marriages with locals, and thus becoming Jats. Interestingly, almost none of these tribes have tradition of aboriginal descent, with the possible exception of the Bhangu and Jotah. Both the Bhangu and Jotah also have traditions that they have always been Jat. Among the three tribes being looked, most now live in Chiniot, Jhang, Sahiwal, Okara and Faisalabad districts, there are some traditions of Brahman descent, which if true shows the fluid nature of the society in the Bar. In this post, I shall look at the Bhangu, Jotah, Naul, Nonari and Sahu. Time permitting, in the future I want to look at the numerically important Kharal tribe. Among the three, the first is fairly widespread with a presence in North Punjab, but the Naul and Nonari are classic Bar nomads. Below is a list of tribes classified in Jhang District (present day Jhang and Chiniot districts):

I would also ask you to look at the list in Jhang district, which is referred to in the post on the Chadhars. Some of these tribes that are listed separately are actually clans of the Chadhar, such as the Thabal, Kaloke and Rajoke.

Bhangu

Bhangu, also pronounced Bhangoo, and even Bhango is a Jat gotra or clan mainly found in the Punjab state of North India, Sindh and Punjab province of Pakistan. In this post I shall only be looking at the Muslim branch, in particular those found in the Shorkot region of Jhang District. The Bhangu have a tradition that they have always been Jat, and those in Jhang claim to be the earliest settlers, predating the Chadhars, Gilotars, Sials, Nissowanas, who acknowledge that Bhangu were there before them. It is quite possible, the Jhang was the first settlement in the Punjab.

Reference is made by early Arab historians, to a tribe called Bhangoo, who were the lords of “Budhiya” around present day Sehwan, Sindh, Pakistan. According to tribal traditions, Kaka was the son of Kotal, and the grandson of Bhandargu Bhangoo, who may or may not be the Bhangoo refered by Arab historians. Historians like Andre Wink have referred to the migration of Jat tribes from Sindh to Punjab, leading to settlement as farmers, and often conversion to Islam. Certainly, the Bhangu are said to be the rulers of Jhang, before their displacement by the Chadhars, who in turm were overthrown by the Sial. Like their neighbours, the Shorkot Bhangu were pastoral nomads, who lost their lands as Shorkot was opened to the settlement in the 19th Century. Unlike the Bar Bhangus, groups migrated further east, and settled in the Majha and Malwa regions, as well as Gunjranwala. These were essentially farmers, although Gujranwala Bhangu had longer traditions of pastoralism. Some of these adopted the Sikh faith, while others became Muslim.

Outside Shorkot, Bhangu, both Sikh and Muslim were found throughout central Punjab from Lyalpur (now Faisalabad) to Ludhiana. At the time of Partition, Sikh Bhangus of Sialkot and Gujranwala moved to India, while Muslims from Amritsar and Jallandhar moved to Pakistan. In Shorkot, the Bhangu villages include Basti Mujahidabad, Bhangu Sharqi, Chah Jandan Wala, Chah Tahli Wala Bhangoo, Chah Lal Wala, Chah Budh Wala, Kot Mapal Bhangoo, Kothi Sultan Mehmood Bhangu, Kikranwala, Mauza Bhangoo and Chak 7 Gagh.

 

 Jotah / Joota

The next clan that I will are the Jotah, which sometimes spelt as Joota. Like the Bhangu, the Jotah have no tradition of migration, which thus point to a possible aboriginal descent. They are a clan of pastoral Jats, who have always resided in the Chenab Jhelum Doab, who make no claim to Rajput ancestry. According to tribal traditions, the word juta is derived from the Seraiki word jutna which means to plough a field.

The Jotah are found mainly in the Shorkot Tehsil of Jhang District, and their main villages are Allahyar Juta, Chak 7 Gagh, Chak 233 JB, Kotla Zarif Khan, Mauza Mahla and Yarewala, north of the city of Shorkot. West of Jhang, the Joota villages in Layyah District include Chak No 152TDA and Haider Kalluwala. In Khanewal District, they are found in the villages of Jato Kassi, Karampur Juta, Kot Kathia Juta, Khan Bahadurgarh, Chak Hyderabab, Kukkar Hatta, Salarwahin, Inyatpur, Mulapur and Faridpur. While in Khushab in the heart of the Thal Desert, there are several Juta families in the large village of Noorpur Thal. In Sahiwal District their villages include Chak No. 18/14 L Iqbalnagar, Chak NO.14/14L, Chak No.20/14L, Chak No.31/12L, Chak No.28/14L, Chak No.103/12L, Chak No.101/12L and Chak 58G.D Bahadar Shah.

Naul

The Naul are a tribe of Jat status, Like the Langrials, discussed earlier, there are traditions that Naul are of Brahman decent. Naul, there ancestor was a Brahman of Bikaner, who migrated to the Neeli Bar, adopted Islam, and married into a Jat family. Other traditions however refer to Naul being a Rajput, the elder son of Raja Dhaan, the Rajput ruler of Bikaner in Rajasthan. He is said to have accepted at the hands of Baba Farid, the Sufi saint now buried at Pakpattan, a city located in the Neeli Bar. After their conversion to Islam, the Naul occupied lowlands of the Chenab round Jhang before the Sials. With the arrival of the Sials, said to be around the 15th Century, the Naul were pushed deeper in the Bar. For a short period after the arrival of the Sial, the Sials were subject to the Nauls and paid tribute. However, with the support of the Lodhi Sultans of Delhi, they ended Naul rule. As pastoral nomads, the Naul migrated through a wide portion of the Sandal Bar and Vichanh areas in the Chaj Doab. With rise of Sikh power, the Naul independence finally came to an end, and with the rise of the British, most of the Naul area was subject to large scale colonization,

 

There are still more then three hundred settlements ain the low areas of Rivers Satluj in Kasur and along the Chenab in District Jhang. Most of the tribe are settled in districts of Kasur, Sahiwal, Okara, Sheikhupura, Nankana Sahib. Important Naul settlements include Haveli Lakha in Okara, and Chak 227 JB, Chak 230 JB, and Chak 232 JB in Jhang District.

Nonari

I shall next look at the Nonari, sometimes also spelt Nunari, are a tribe of Jat status found mainly in the Neeli Bar region. Although found mainly in what is now Sahiwal, Okara and Khanewal districts, Nonari settlements also exist in the Kirana Bar in what is now Sargodha District. According to their own tribal traditions, they are descendent of a Rajah Karan, ruler of Anhilvara Pattan in what is now Gujerat in India, who was defeated by the Khilji Ala-ud-Din in 1297 and again in 1307. This Rajah Karan and his kinsmen are said to have fled to the Neeli Bar, where they accepted Islam at the hands of the Sufi saint, Mukhdum-i-Jehaniyan. This would make the Nonari a branch of the Solanki or Chalukya tribe of Rajputs.

 

Over the centuries Nonari power declined as the Kharal and Joiyas reduced their area of influence. As the Nonari contracted marriages with other tribes of Jat status, they became absorbed into the Jat community. So this is what the Nonari say of their origin. However the Nonari does sound a lot like Nona or salt, and there is caste of workers that produce salt called the Nungar. There may be some connection, but the Nonari are seen as by most of their neighbours as of Jat status, and were recognized as such by the British colonial authorities. Like the Naul, the coming of the British meant they could not practice nomadic pastoralism, and were forced to settle.

In terms of distribution, they are found in Jhang, Layyah, Muzaffargarh, Sahiwal, Multan, Lodhran and Khanewal. Starting with Jhang, they are found in Chak 7 Gagh and Chak 230 JB.

Sahu

The Sahu are a tribe of Jat status, found mainly near the towns of Tulamba and Kabirwala. They are a branch of the Chauhan tribe. They originate from the Marwar region of Rajasthan, where a good many Sahu are still found. In Marwar, the Sahu were ruler of a small republic, who capital was the village of Dhansia, situated at a distance of 65 km in northwest of Churu. The various Jat republics were eventually conquered by the Rathore Rajputs. When the Rathore were expanding their control, groups of Sahu left Rajasthan, and settled near Tulamba. Their presence in Tulamba is attested by the Ain-Akbari, which made reference to the Sahu occupying Tulamba, near Multan in the 15th Century. They are considered one of the oldest established tribe in the Multan region. Like other migrants from Rajasthan, once the Sahu entered the Bar region, they converted to Islam. The Sahu have produced the famous Sufi Khawja Sufi Allahdad Sahu, whose shrine is in the town of Sheikh Fazil in Vehari District.

In terms of distribution, they are found mainly in Khanewal and Vehari districts. In Khanewal District, important Sahu villages include Mouza Hussainpur Aari Wala, near the town of Tulamba, Maari Sahu, Rehana Sahu and Qaim Sahu. While in Jhang District, they are found in Chak 228 JB. The village of Mouza Sahu near Makhdoom Rasheed, in Multan District, according to Sahu traditions is their oldest settlement in Punjab.

List and Population of Jat clans of the Rawalpindi Division According 1911 Census of India

Below is a list of Muslim Jat clans and their population of the Rawalpindi Division of Punjab, drawn up for 1911 Census of India. In 1911, the Rawalpindi Division consisted of five districts, Rawalpindi, Sargodha, Attock, Jhelum, Mianwali and Gujrat. There has been criticism of the 1911 Census, particularly of Pandit Harkishan Kaul, the census commissioner of Punjab. It started during his lifetime, and continues now with a cabal at Wikepedia supporting the mantra of the incompetent Indian and dismissing all works by Kaul. In my opinion, Pandit Harkishan was exceptional individual and ethnologist, and if we consider the time he was working, his achievements are truly extraordinary. Therefore, I dedicate this blog to him.

Just one more point I wish to make, the appearance of a particular tribe as Jat in the list does not in itself confirm that the tribe is Jat or otherwise. Identity does change with time, and some groups in the list may no longer identify themselves as Jats. This list is however very useful as it gives an historical distribution of Muslim Jat tribes in the Punjab province of Pakistan, a number of years prior to the partition of Punjab.

With regards to Jat tribes, this region is home to numerous small tribes who go by the name Jat.

Jhelum District

The total Muslim Jat population of the district, according to the 1931 Census of India, was 84,361 (99%) out of a total population of 85,459. These were the main Jat clans in Jhelum District, as enumerated in the 1911 Census of India:

Other then the tribes in the list, the Customary Law of Jhelum District included Athal, Bhin, Dhaipai, Ghugh, Hargan (also spelt Hurgan), Jethal, Kurar, Iswal, Lilla and Nathial. In all fairness, the Jat clans of the region are numerous, and their can never be definite list. I already have articles on the Lilla and Jethal, and hope to write on the Ghugh.

His brother Yar Muhammad threw off all allegiance to the Mughals, seized the Siwistan sarkar of Thatha, the Siwi mahali of Bakhar in the Multan Province, and Dihar, and wrested the title of Khudayar from the Mughal authorities. His descendant Nur Muhammad drove the Daudpotras out of the zamindari of Lakkhi, in the Bakhar mahal. In 1736-37 the Lati Khan, Khudayar received the province of Thatha, together with the southern part of the Bakhar sarkar, but two or three years later he was stripped of two-thirds of his territory by Nadir Shah. After Nadir Shahs death however the Khudayar assumed authority over all Sind, under the nominal suzerainty of the Durranis, but their rule was short-lived. Nur Muhammad Kalhora was succeeded on his death in 1762 by his son Muhammad Murad, but he only ruled for five years and was deposed by the Talpur Baloch, who set up his brother Mian Ghulam Shah (1757-58). An attempt by his brother Attar Khan to regain Sind, under the authority of a Durrani grant, failed, Ghulam Shah died in 1771, while superintending the erection of the fortress of Haidarabad in Sindh, after a stormy reign of 15 years. He had in 1758 allowed the East India Company to establish a factory in Sindh, but Sarfarz Khan, his son and successor, cancelled the permit in 1775. A year previously he had caused Bahram Khan, head of the Talpurs, and one of his sons to be assassinated, and this led his dethronement, in or about 1786.[17]
