Dharni History

Sir Lepel Griffin (1865) was of the opinion that the Dharni's came into the Punjab region from the present central Asia. Most of the Jat tribes entered the Punjab in the 5th century. There are many theories about the origin of the Jats. Jats are sometimes considered to be of Scythian (Saka), Indo-European, Indo-Iranian or Indo-Aryan stock in view of the similar physical features and common practices with one or the other of these groups.
