Ram Swarup Joon[2] writes that Pliny has written that during a conflict between KhanKesh, a province in Turkey, and Babylonia, they sent for the Sindhu Jats from Sindh. These soldiers wore cotton uniforms and were experts in naval warfare. On return from Turkey they settled down in Syria. They belonged to Hasti dynasty. Asiagh Jats ruled Alexandria in Egypt. Their title was Asii.

यूरोपियन टर्की

यूरोपियन टर्की - इसको ‘सल्तनत आटोमेन ऐम्पायर’ कहते हैं। (देखो दी हिस्टोरिकल लीजेन्ड्स आफ पर्शिया बाई जोन विलसन डी, डी, ऐम, आर, ए, ऐस)। आटोमेन यौगिक शब्द है ओटो + मेन का। ओटो अपभ्रंश है यदु का। मेन अपभ्रंश है मनु का। तात्पर्य है यदुवंशियों से। इस साम्राज्य की राजधानी कुन्सतुनतुनिया को यदुवंशी बादशाह कोन्स्टेनटाइन ने आबाद किया था। कोन्स्टेनटाइन अपभ्रंश है कंसतनतनियां का। कंसतन = कंस का लड़का। तनियां = कंसतन की लड़की, अर्थात् कंस के लड़के की लड़की के वंश में। इसीलिए इस वंश की पदवी ‘अफरासिआब जाह’ कहलाती है। अफरासिआब अपभ्रंश है अप्रिय श्याम का। तात्पर्य है श्री कृष्णचन्द्र जी से शत्रुता रखने वाले कंस के वंश के यदुवंशी। (पृ० 10-11)

यह पहले लिखा जा चुका है कि सम्राट् ययातिपुत्र यदु से यादववंश प्रचलित हुआ जो कि जाटवंश है।[3]

Rule of Turvasu

Yayati made Turvasu the rulers of westwrn region. The descendants of Turvasu were known as Turvasus, who founded Turvaski. Over a period of time Turvaski became Turski and finally Turkey.

The ancestor of Tomars

The descendants of Turvasu, known as Turvasus changed due to linguistic differences to Turvas, Tavras, Tambar and Tomar. Due to political reasons Tomars returned from west region to south through Central Asia and settled in areas around Delhi. Since they had come from west they have been called Yavanas in Sabha Parva of Mahabharata.

The Tomars moved from Delhi region to other places in search of better lands and reached up to Bhind in Madhya Pradesh. In the seventh century the Tomars were divided into two communities. Those Tomars who came under the influence of newer Hindu religion, got inducted into Agnikula Rajputs. Rest who believed in old Vedic traditions remain to be known as Tomar Jats even today.
