waraich tribe and history

Waraich (clan)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


Population distribution

The Waraich population was 38,070 in Amritsar district during the 1911 British Punjab Census.[ In the Patiala district it was 19,950.

Geographic distribution
Western Punjab


The Waraich are mostly found in western Punjab, Pakistan, in the districts of Gujrat and Gujranwala. They are also significant populations in the southern districts of Punjab like Multan,Duniapur and Sargodha. The Waraich in Sargodha are mostly landlords and they come here from Gujrat and Gujranwala.


Eastern Punjab

In eastern Punjab in India the clan is found in large numbers in the Majha and Malwa regions. Historically they are known as land owners and served in the Indian and Pakistani armies. In Indian Punjab the clan occupies about 315 villages. After 1947 a large number of Waraich moved into Haryana.

Mythical history

According to Sir Lepal Griffin, the tribe migrated to Punjab during the reign of Mohammad of Ghazni and settled in Gujrat, in present day Pakistan.[3].

According to legend, a Jat named Waraich had five sons who moved from Chenab to the two cities Gujrat and Gujranwala. Around the tenth century A.D., their descendants moved down to the Jhelum River in large numbers. Until the thirteenth-century AD they continued to fight with Gujjar tribes. Today the Waraich occupy a very compact area comprising 360 villages in a region called Jatat. During the period of Feroz Shah Tughlaq, a certain Haria leader of these Waraich Jats converted to Islam and founded a village later named Hariawala after him.

During Sher Shah Suri's conquest of Bengal he defeated the brothers, who left the area and traveled westwards. They settled on the banks of the Chenab river. This new home was on the lands previously used by Gujjars for grazing cattle. This settlement led to rivalry between the Waraich Jats and the incumbent Gujjars. Traces of clan presence is alleged to be evident from the name "Gujrat" - though this name is evidence from the medieval period and was named after the very same region now the state of Gujarat in India.

The Waraich clan gradually spread out to places beyond Gujrat , Gujranwala , Sargodha and Faisalabad (Samundari 442GB & 443GB).

Other traditions have these variously labelled Jats or Rajputs or both ruling over Shergarh and Nagaur and other cites until 275 AD.

Re: waraich tribe and history

Great Info, Thanks Really H4RVI, But i will Disagree only on One thing, Mentioned or Claiming "Arain" Clan to Jatt or Choudhry isnt Correct, "Arain" are Neither Choudhry Nor Jatt, As much As i heard of My Forefathers and Much is also in Wikipedia link here Arain - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

+ in Shouthern Punjab, Pakistan, There are Two More Jutt Clans " Mohal" & " Thabal" (May Be Thabal is Same of "Thathal" As you mentioned ) are Also Found in City of Gujrat. Gujrat which Was Named as Area of "Gujjar Jatt", and with time Name Became as Gujrat.
Hopes you Agree
But all in all, your Given info are Really Precious
Love you, Hugs.
