Muslim Rajput clans of Jalandhar Division


Muslim Rajput clans of Jalandhar Division

Below is a list of Muslim Rajput clans and their population in the Jalandhar Division of Punjab, drawn up for 1911 Census of India. In 1911, this division consisted of five districts, Jalandhar, Ludhiana, Hoshiarpur, Firozpur and Ludhiana.[1] The appearance of a particular tribe as Rajput in the list does not in itself confirm that the tribe is Rajput or otherwise. Identity may change with time, and some groups in the list may no longer identify themselves as Rajput. This list gives an historical distribution of Muslim Rajput tribes in the Punjab province of India, a number of years prior to the partition of Punjab.[2][3] Almost all of the Jalandhar Division Muslim Rajputs moved to Pakistan after partition in 1947.
