Origin

अहलावत गोत्र की शाखा

दलीप सिंह अहलावत[3] लिखते हैं:

अहलावत गोत्र के महान् पुरुषों के नाम से ओहलाण,पेहलाण, ब्रह्माण, जून और माड़े गोत्र चले हैं। अतः इनकी रगों में एक ही धारा का खून बह रहा है। कुछ लेखकों ने जून गोत्र को अहलावत, ओहलाण, पेहलाण, ब्रह्माण गोत्रों का सौतेला भाई (मौसी का बेटा) लिखा है और दन्त्तकथा भी यही प्रचलित है। हमारे लेख से स्पष्ट है कि जून गोत्र भी इन चारों गोत्रों का रक्त भाई या एक ही वंश का है। राजा गजसिंह जिसके पुत्र जून और माड़े थे, अहलावत सोलंकी गोत्र का था1। अहलावत, ओहलाण, पेहलाण, ब्रह्माण गोत्रों के आपस में आमने-सामने एवं एक दूसरे की भांजी या भांजा के साथ विवाह नहीं होते हैं। जून ने छोछी गांव बसाया जो कि डीघल के निकट है। इसी गांव से जून गोत्र के 15 गांव बसे हैं -

जिला रोहतक में 1. छोछी 2. नूणा माजरा 3. लोवा 4. खुंगाई 5. समचाणा 6. गद्दी खेड़ी 7. पत्थरहेड़ी 8. देसलपुर 9. अभूपुर, सोनीपत जिले में 10. छतहरा, फरीदाबाद में 11. अजरोंदा, चण्डीगढ़ में 12. मनीमाजरा और देहली प्रान्त में 13. नांगलकबीर 14. ककरोला (कुछ घर) जून जाट गोत्र के हैं।

अहलावत वंश के शाखा गोत्र - 1. ओहलाण 2. पेहलाण 3. ब्रह्माण 4. जून 5. माड़े

History

Ram Sarup Joon [4] writes that ... Ahlawat and Joon gotras belong to that branch of Solanki which ruled over Kaliani and Watapi (Vatapi) in South India from 5th to 12th century AD. They had a staunch enemy i.e. Raja Rajendra Chol. He attacked them with an army of one hundred thousand strong during the reign of seventh Raja Satish Raj Solanki and seized a major part of the kingdom.

In 1052 AD a new ruler of this dynasty came forth to redeem the old loss. His name was Ahumal and was titles Sameshwar I and Raj Raja. He attacked the Chol kingdom with a large army, conquered it and married Umang Devi daughter of the Chol king. He made Bangi his new capital. This kingdom existed astride the Tunga Bhadra River. Ahumal died in 1068 AD. His dynasty is called Ahlawat.


History of the Jats, End of Page-69


After several generations Bisaldev of this dynasty migrated towards north and settled down in village Nanhakhera (Seria) near Dighal in district Rohtak. He had four sons Olha, Ahlawat, Birmhan and Pehlawat An ancient pond (Birmala) named after Birmhan (Brebhan) is still famous for its sanctity in village Seria (Rohtak). Four new gotras (clans) originated after their names and are found settled in 30 villages around Dighal. Todd and Tarikhe Gujran have recorded this event in "Gazetteer of Rohtak" by Abdul Malik.


Hukum Singh Panwar[5] while advocating the presence of Indo Aryans in Baltic region writes that It is extremely interesting to note that Dr. Marija Gimbutas[6], a Lithuanian scholar, who has highlighted many affinities and parallels to show close cultural and linguistic relationships between the Balts (from Baltisthan) and the Vedic Aryans[7], mentions, as quoted by Dr. Chatterji[8], the names of the Baltic tribes and territories. These indisputably betray their Indian names and, especially, Jat names. The names she mentions (with their possible equivalent given in brackets) are: Latgala or Lettigallian (present-day Letts of Latvia) or ancient and modern Lets (Lat or Lathar Jats), Kursas or Curonians (Kurus), Sela or Selonicans (S=H, Hela Jats), Kulmas (G = K, Gulmas from Gulmarg, Kashmir), Pamede (P = B, Bamede or Bamian), Lubava (?), Pagude (Jagude or Jakhar Jats?), Sasna (Sse or Ssae, Scythian, Jats), Galinda (Kalinda?), Varme (Varmas, V=B, Barma or Barme or Birhmaan Jats), Notanga (?), Scmba(Samba Jats), Sakalva or Skalva Sakas), Nadruva (Madras?),Barta (Bharta Jats), Suduva, also known as the Dainva (Danavas), and the Jotya (Jatva or Jats).

In this context, we also wish to draw the attention of our readers to a still more astonishing fact that the Balts, even after their separation thousands of years ago from Rig Vedic Aryans and in spite of their permanent settlement in the Baltic countries thousands of kilometers away from Sapta Sindhu, have not as yet dislodged the idea from their psyche that India is their motherland.
