Ghirths doesn't belong to Jatt community. They are weak and backward class. They have no comparison with mighty Jatts β€” they are associating with Jatts because they are a bunch of insecure wannabes

Ghrits are nor loosing respect neither they claimed to be JAT. However, some JAT historian of Rajasthan & Haryana associated them with JAT. It is true that Gotra & culture of Ghrits and Jats are similar, One can check JAT Mahasabha site.

Girth are the most hard working people of himachal , they are working farmers who grow crops by working hard with their blood and sweat. Those who rear all types of milch animals like cow, buffalo and goat, who work hard on the land throughout the year. To whom the Brahmin and Rajput castes together gave the status of non- untouchable lower class and upper lower caste for their own benefit. Because these people knew that grains, vegetables, milk and water to fill their stomachs would come from the hands of this lower caste. That is why these people could not stop Girth Lower Caste from coming inside the threshold of their house. Just as after a lot of hard work, curd is made from milk, buttermilk is obtained from curd and ghee is obtained from buttermilk, similarly the hardworker Girth community is also like ghee. The Sanskrit word for Ghee is Ghrit (farmer community).

Ghirath (also known as Ghirath, Ghrit or Chaudhary) is a Hindu Kshatriya agricultural Indian Jat caste found in the state of Himachal Pradesh in northern India . [1]

Ghirath Jat is a Jat subcommunity found in Himachal Pradesh . Gher is a Pahari word and Chang is a Punjabi word. Presently this community is known as Chaudhary people of Himachal Pradesh. People of this caste mainly reside in Kangra district of Himachal. 40% Ghirath is the residential map in Kangra [2]

History

According to one legend, the circles are so called because the Hindu god Shiva created them from ghee ( ghrit in Sanskrit ). This etymology reflects the community's traditional occupation of animal husbandry and agriculture . However, some members of the community trace their lineage to a sage named Ghrit Rishi, and claim connections to the mythological Kauravas mentioned in the Mahabharata . The community belongs to the Jat Kshatriya clan. [1]

H.A. Rose [1] writes that the folk etymology derives Ghiratha from ghee, because Shiva created him from ghee. In Hoshiarpur the circles are called Bahati. In India they are called Jat. Chang is a Punjabi name, and Ghirth is a hill word. [3]

Jat tribe of Himachal about which most people are unaware. [4]

Ghirth is a Pahari word which means ghee. This community is basically Jat who settled in the hilly areas from Rajasthan and Punjab 700 years ago. James Lippin Lyall writes on page 640 that the Jat people in the hilly areas are called Ghirth. The reason for this is their consumption of ghee in large quantities, hence they are called Ghee Ahari i.e. Ghirath. Chaudhary of Himachal is called Ghirath whereas throughout India Chaudhary is considered synonymous with Jats. [5] Ghirath people also believe their origin from Lord Shiva because in the Hindu holy book Dev Samhita, the origin of Jats is said to be from Shiva. Like their Jat (Jatt) brothers, this hill Jat is also an excellent farmer and brave soldier. Among them, women have a respectable place among the Jats, hence when they become widows, they get remarried like the Jats, which is a proof of their being Jat Kshatriyas. In Punjab, the kings and Maharajas are Jats (Jatts). These brave Jats foiled Mohammad Tughlaq's attack on Karachil i.e. Nagarkot. There are 360 ​​clans of Chaudhary in Himachal who reside in Kangra, Una and adjoining Hoshiarpur of Punjab. Their entire clan belongs to the Jat community. In the eastern part, they are called Chang Chahang. In the west, this word Chahang is basically Chahad, which is the clan of Jats, which is called Chahar in Braj region and Chahal in Punjab.

Is GhirthbahtiChang community are same?

The Ghirth jaat also known as Bahti/Changh in Punjab are a Hindu agricultural caste found in the state of Himachal Pardesh in North India. They are also known as the Chaudhary.


Is Ghirth a low caste?

No this not caste basically it is tribe, Ghrit is a separate tribe and does not fall under Hindu Varna systems. However, if you ask from cunning and mughal slave rajput and brahman misinformed by saying that Ghrit are lower caste.


Is Ghirth jat in Himachal?

Ghirth is a separate caste, they want to step up in social hierarchy that's why they want to be called as Jatts. but they are different.According to a legend, the Ghirths are so called because the Hindu god Shiva made them out of ghee (ghrita in Sanskrit). This etymology is reflective of the community's traditional occupation of animal husbandry and agriculture. However, some members of the community trace their ancestry to a sage called Ghrit Rishi, and claim connections to the legendary Kauravas mentioned in the Mahabharata. The community also claims descent from the Rajput Kshatriyas.At the beginning of the 20th century, the Ghirths were the dominant low-caste cultivators and marginal landholders in the Himachal region. Since they were considered as a 'clean' (not untouchable) low caste, they were employed as domestic servants by the higher castes: their 'clean' status allowed them to perform tasks such as fetching water or cleaning cooking utensils, which the untouchable servants were not allowed to do. Nevertheless, the Rajput, who were the dominant landholding caste of the region, had imposed social restrictions on them. Around 1926, the Ghirths started a movement to achieve upward social mobility, and started opposing these restrictions. They refused menial work, creating difficulties for the higher castes that earlier employed them as servants.

Their traditional areas of residence are Rajputana, Trigarta Kingdom (the modern Jalandhar District), i.e. the areas of residence are mainly in the Indian states of Punjab, Rajasthan, Uttarakhand and Himachal Pradesh. They are a branch of Sisodya Rajputs of Rajputana who moved out of Mewar during the reign of Rana Amar Singh as he accepted the Mughal Supremacy of Jehangir and settle Anyone who thinks kondal are a lower caste. It is just because rana amar singh accepted mughal supermacy . Most of strong rajputs were killed during that time with mughals. Read full history of Raja Amar singh . Have full knowledge brothers . And then from that time other rajput castes degraded kondals from Rajputs . This was the only reason. It wasn’t the fault of our king . Was happened because of circumstances.

Is bahti a low caste?

Bahti is One of largest group of Jatts in punjab.it is mixed group of jatt in which both types of jatts are found Hindu or Punjabi Both.but this caste has mani issues among people ,people are living in many defences.most occupation of this group is agriculture.in ancient time,people acquire 62 acres and that's they called bati,nad became Bahti with passage of time. Before that thay were bahniwal and were jimidar people but in 1800s,during sikh times ,,many bahti's become sikh and so,they become bahniwal jatt.but this community was not completly under siikhism. most part of it ,is also in hindu because many people left from this. today, people are liviny in many defences but real is that bahti are bahniawal jatt. and they are diffrent from other caste people like rajput,ghirth,Chang. these castes mostly have many defences.but is higher than saini's, rajputs.but,today ,this caste has not any minister .due to it,it is going backward. it is also found thay people are living by hiding their caste. but we need awareness as soon as possible we can do.
