GUJJARS : 2nd Largest Ethinic and Linguistic Entity Of Afghanistan

Ch. Muhammad Ashraf Gujjar is a
prolific writer on Gujjar Affairs.His article “GUJJARS : 2nd Largest
Ethinic and Linguistic Entity Of Afghanistan ” is a classical work in
Gujjar History.We are presenting this article below.
Ch Muhammad Ashraf Gujjar is Advocate Supreme Court of Pakistan
Chairman, Islamabad Lawyers Foundation (Regd.)
Ex-President, Islamabad Bar Association.

———————————————————————————————
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 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, Afghanistan and Central Asian States,
e.g. Gujarat, Gujaranwala, Gujarwal, Gujar Dhar, Gujar Garrh, Gujar
Khan, Kalla Gujjaran, Gujar Garrhi, Gurjistan, Gujarni, Gujaristan,
Georjia, Gujar Abad and Gujar Khashi, There are numerous places named
after the sub-clans of Gujjars, e.g.Chechania, Chechian, Jhanda Chechi,
Kharian, New-Katarian, etc. 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%. 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

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 Indo & Pakistan and enjoys its
representation on a number of state owned Radio and Television channels
in India and Pakistan. 10. It will be worth mentioning that the Pushto
speaking population do not belong to one community, triabal or racial
group rather they are devided into Shanwaris, Afridis, Safis, Khattaks,
Mashwanis and Yousafzais, etc. etc., 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 win the war against terror. 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 presetn
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. The Allied Forces,
in order to bring the perpetual peace in Afghanistan, may even now draw
a strategy to form a true representative Aghan-Government.

Places Named After The Gujjar Tribe In Pakistan

Ch. Muhammad Ashraf Gujjar is a prolific writer on Gujjar Affairs.His article Places Named After The Gujjar Tribe In Pakistan tells us that a large number of places has been named after Gujjar Tribe.The article is given below.

The thousands of places were named after the Gujjars and their sub-tribes in the Sub-Continent during the period they ruled over the South and some part of Central Asia. In these days an interesting discussion is going on as to who the Gujjars or Gurjars are? I am mentioning the name of some places situated in all the four provinces of Pakistan. This do not include the villages named after the Gujjars situated in Jammu & Kashmir, Northern Areas and the Tribal Areas. I will updating the visitors of this site after I complete the data in respect of these areas. I will also try my best some time later to provide the name of villages after the sub-tribes of Gujjars. The following data will help the analysts and historians to draw some befitting and logical conclusion.
I will be highly obliged if any brethren may add to my knowledge by mentioning such places named after the word Gujar, Gujjar or Gurjar, situated in India or any other part of the world. Kindly forward this despatch to other sites discussing the Gujjar’s dilema.

History of Swati Gujjars

Sajid Anwar Gujjar GIS Analyst, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Forest Department,Peshawar.
Sajid Anwar Gujjar

The originator of the present famous family of Swat was a Muslim saint Abdul Ghafoor a Khatana Gujjar of Hazara district from where he went to Buner territory. He was a pious man and the people respected him so greatly that they called him AKHUND SAHIB (S.G. Page 398 and 399,T and C of N.W.F.P by Ibbestson page 11 etc).

It was the mid years of nineteenth century A.D. when Muslim tribes were fighting against each other for the possession of swat valley. On the intervention of honourable Akhund Sahib the killing was stopped and such was his saintly influence that the chiefs of all tribes unanimously made him the ruler of the valley.Akhund Sahib administrated the valley according to muslim Laws. Peace and tranquility provided and the agriculture and trade flourished in the territory. Akhund Sahib had two sons by his wife who belonged to Nikbi Khel.
After the death of Akhund Sahib, the tribal chiefs again started fighting and killing which continued for years. After all the tribal chiefs agreed to give the control of the valley in hands of Honourable GUl shahzada Abdul Wadood, the son of Mian Gul Abdul Khaliq who was son of Akhund Sahib.The wife of Mian Abdul Wadood was the daughter of Honorable Mirza Afzal-ul-Mulk the ruler of Chitral. The Britishers by trick put Chitral under suzerainty of Kashmir.The chitral ruler gave two horses every year to the Rajia of Kashmir and the Raja provided chitral with grains and sugar etc. Swat thus went under protection of the Britishers.

During the rule of Mian Gul Muhammad, Abdul Haq Jehanzeb the son of Mian Abdul Wadood the state acceded to Pakistan in 1947 A.D. The present prince Muhammad Aurzngzeb Khan son of Honourable Jahanzeb married the daughter of filed Marshal Mohammad Ayub Khan in 1955 A.D. Thus by inter marriages with the other castes, the family as branch of the imperial Gujjars.
Honorable Jahznzeb started a Degree College at Saidu Sahrif the capital of the State and four High Schools at Mangora,Chakesar, Matta and Dagar. Fourteen middle Schools,Twenty eight Lower middle schools and fifty six primary schools, were established. There was a girls high school and high class religious schools at Saidu Sharif. In all the schools the poor students were granted scholarships. The state was an exemplary state during British Rule. The Gujjars were very poor people in Swat valley but now days they have diverted their attention towards ducation and are holding good posts I government towards ducaton and re holding good posts in government services. They also have a firm stand in politics of Pakistan. At then Prince Aurangzed Khan is also Governor of Baluchistan.
