Original source of Jat history

Choudhary Kabul Singh has preserved the history of Sarva Khap panchayat from the period of Harshavardhana. Maharaja Harshavardhana is believed to have started the Khap system in Jats.

It has been mentioned in the chronicles of Jat 'Sarv Khap', which are still preserved with Chaudhry Kabul Singh that the Jat Sarv Khap, reinforced Prithvi Raj with 22,000 brave Jats, who contributed a great deal for Prithvi Raj to win the day. To avenge his humiliation and defeat he attacked again and won at Tarain (1192). Ghori made Qutb-ud-Din his regent at Delhi. Negotiations with kings were done - at 'Sarva Khap' level. Chaudhry Kabul Singh , whose ancestors were leaders of the Sarva Khaap Panchayat, holds some copper plates and papers bearing records of important negotiations. The sarv khap (clan) mahapanchayat was held at Shoram. The two-day convention held on October 5 and 6, 2005 created quite a stir by suggesting extra tough measures against rampant sex determination tests.

The host was maverick farmer leader Chaudhary Mahendra Singh Tikait who heads the Baliyan Khap .The body had sent invites to the 20-odd khaps known now more for sibling rivalry and mutual mistrust. The guest list included former CM of Delhi Sahib Singh Verma, Avtar Singh Bhadana and Kishan Singh Sangwan, Rajya Sabha MP Harendra Malik, state minister in Uttaranchal Dhirenda Singh and Jagadguru Rajrajeshwaranand. Last time such a panchayat was held in 1956.
