Jat Gotras Namesake


B S Dahiya[12] writes: They are mentioned in the Mahabharata as 'Kata Kalika', along with Mahishaka (Bains), Karaskar, Karkana and Viraka. 'Kata Kalika' became 'Katkal' or Khatkal as they are named in Punjab. In Haryana they are called Khatkar. It should be noted that Kakar, Varika, etc, mentioned here are all Jat clans (see under Guptas also who are sometimes called Kāraskaras). During the time of Naushervan (531-579 AD), the Sassanid emperor of Iran (who was himself born of a Jat lady of Tur clan, married by his father, Kavadh, in 498 AD when he was in exile and seeking the help of his Jat relations), we find that their chief, Khakan, at Balkh was in favour of peace with the Iranians. But the Hapthals (Haitals - Antals ?) who were now under the Gaṭkal clan, did not want peace, therefore, they killed the ambassador sent for this purpose. The result was a civil war among the Jats. The army of Khakan, under General Fanz (should be Bans - a Jat clan, the same as European Vans/Vance attacked and defeated the Gaṭkals (Khatkals) and killed their king. The Khatkals, called their elders' meeting and elected Fagane Bagani their new leader. But Naushervan feared the increased power of the Balkh Khakan and so, came on the side of Khakals. The result was peace and marriage of Naushervan with a daughter of the Khakan to cement the ties. Hermuzd, his successor, was born from this marriage. Our point here is to show the existence of Khatkal Jats in that area in sixth century AD. The famous martyr of our Independence movement Shaheed Bhagat Singh, was living in Khatkar Kalan Village of Punjab. He was from Sindhu gotra not khatkar gotra as mentioned here before this edit on May-31-2020Khatkar Jat''.[13] [14]
