Jats


Jats
   A local people of Sind and the Punjab who in the eighth century suffered from the many restrictions imposed on them. Jats were to take dogs with them whenever they went outdoors. This practice was confirmed by a caliphal order. By the middle of the 13th century, the Jats had spread to the east of the Beah River and emerged as a large peasant community in that tract.
