Gulia (गुळिया) Guliya (गुलिया) [1][2] Gulya(गुल्या) Galia (गलिया) Goleya (गोलेया)/Gulaiya (गुलैया)[3] is a gotra or clan of Jats found in Haryana, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh in India. Dilip Singh Ahlawat has mentioned it as one of the ruling Jat clans in Central Asia. [4] Gali clan found in Afghanistan.[5] They are branch of Gora. [6]

Origin

They have originated from ancient tribe Kulya (कुल्या). They are the same as Kulya / Kuliya of the Puranas. The Markandeya Purana mentions them alongwith the Matsyas in Central India. Matsya Purana mentions a people named Kuliya. [7]

History

Ram Swarup Joon[8] writes that The bard (Bhat) of Gulia clan has written something unbelievable about the origin of this clan.

It seems that he wrote the incident after a long time when the facts had been forgotten. But there is another story which is authentic. Both the versions (as given by the bard and as given in the story) are given below.

According to the bard, during the rule of Prithvi Raj Chauhan), Badli, a village in Rohtak, was ruled by Raja Badra Sen. Two Saiyad Sardars, Nasir Hussain Mashade and Ata-Ulla Mashade came from Kabul to Badli under the leadership, of Bir Saiyed Hussain to destroy Haryana and they became rulers after killing Badra Sen. They employed Roras and Kalals as tillers.

In 1192 Mohammed Ghori was victorious in the battle of Traori and Prithvi Raj was killed. Seven Brahmin soldiers ran away from the field and hid themselves in a temple near a pond three miles south of Badli. They were the sons of Udai Chand Brahmin of Indergarh. Their names were Ausar, Dausar, Rahal, Ashal, Mahal and Chahal etc. They mistook wine as water and drank it. Their purity as Brahmins was thus polluted. They put their sacred threads in a gol (an oval vessel of clay). Therefore they were called Gullia Jats and they settled in Badli as tenants of the Mohammadans. But the story is not believable on the following grounds. Firstly before 1192, at the time of Prithvi Raj Mohammadan never ruled there. Secondly, when they fled from the battlefield they could have gone to Indergarh directly. Thirdly their names sound like those of dacoits and bear no resemblance to the names of their father Udey Chand. Fourthly, wine should not be so easily mistaken for water. No owner of the wine would allow them to spoil his wine by putting their sacred threads in the Gol, (the earthen vessel).

The other story is that, Badra Sen was an officer in the army of Prithvi Raj. Badli Pargana was his estate. He belonged to a Dhulia family of Indergarh. Before the Chauhan rule, Bhadra, Ajmer, Indergarh etc. were the capitals of the Gor Jats. After the death of Prithvi Raj there was chaos in the country. The Khokhar Jats slayed Mohammad Ghori near Multan. There was a woman named Bodli. The village was named Badli in her honour. Sant Sarang Dev's samadhi (shrine) still exists in Badli and is widely worshipped.

These Gulia Jats were very spirited. When Timur was supervising the massacre of Delhi, a Gulia youth, named, Harveer Gulia assaulted him. There are 24 villages of Gulias near Badli (Rohtak district) and two other villages (Rurki and Sabti) a bit away from there. There are 12 more villages across the Jamuna.


Bhim Singh Dahiya[9] tells us: Now coming to the international field. It is noted that certain clans of the Jats are even today called Galat. Inparticular the Mundtor and Guliya clans are so-called. Do they have some connection with the Galataens of Greek writers, the Celt of history of Europe ? This is a point which calls for further research.

Bhim Singh Dahiya has mentioned about a inscription of Wardak near Kabul of the year 51 of Saka era (129 AD), which relates the establishment of the relic of Lord Buddha in a stupa by Vagramarega who is shown as a scion of Kama Gulya. Here it is related with clan name Gulya of the Jats. [10] Wardak is associated with the history of Burdak Jat clan.

According to the bard of the Gulia clan, during the rule of Prithvi Raj Chauhan, Badli, a village in Rohtak, was ruled by Raja Badra Sen. Two Saiyad Sardars, Nasir Hussain Mashade and Ata-Ulla Mashade came from Kabul to Badli under the leadership, of Bir Saiyed Hussain to destroy Haryana and they became rulers after killing Badra Sen. They employed Roras and Kalals as tillers.

In 1192 Mohammed Ghori was victorious in the battle of Tarai and Prithvi Raj was killed. Seven Brahmin soldiers ran away from the field and hid themselves in a temple near a pond three miles south of Badli. They were the sons of Udai Chand Brahmin of Indergarh. Their names were Ausar, Dausar, Rahal, Ashal, Mahal and Chahal etc. They mistook wine as water and drank it. Their purity as Brahmins was thus polluted. They put their sacred threads in a gol (an oval vessel of clay). Therefore they were called Gulia Jats and they settled in Badli as tenants of the Mohammedans. The bard (Bhat) of Gulia clan has written above unbelievable story about the origin of this clan.


The other story is that, Badra Sen was an officer in the army of Prithvi Raj. Badli Pargana was his estate. He belonged to a Dhulia family of Indergarh. Before the Chauhan rule, Bhadra, Ajmer, Indergarh etc. were the capitals of the Gora Jats. After the death of Prithvi Raj there was chaos in the country.
