AN ACTUAL FAMILY OF CHABUK SAWARS STARTING FROM AFGHANISTAN;
WITH CONNECTIONS IN PAKISTAN (LAHORE) AND VARIOUS CITIES IN INDIA.
In 2017 I received communication from a truck driver in Saudia Arabia, with his family settled there. He was sending me a lot of emails in Roman Urdu, and with lot of details. He told me that they were twelve brothers, and had connections in various cities of India. But their main city was SALUMBAR, and in it was their Mohalla, which was 500 years old. The city was basically a Muslim city and was composed of various ethnic groups, mainly Mirza, Pathan, Nayak, Sheikh and others, but all of them were referred as of Turkish origin. He narrated his family as:
MOHIUDDIN KHAN, Son of
SAALEH MUHAMMED KHAN, Son of
MUHAMMED FATEH BAKSH KHAN CHABUK SAWAR, Son of
MUHAMMED NOOR BAKSH CHABUK SAWAR, Son of
RAHMAT KHAN CHABUK SAWAR, Son of
RAHEEM KHAN CHABUK SAWAR, Son of
RAJU KHAN CHABUK SAWAR.
He says there is family resemblance to a certain Prince Muhammed Raheem Khan of Uzbekistan. It means that some migration occurred there too.
One of their elder NOOR KHAN was murdered in Bhadeswar, and his Mazar is still there. He was poisoned through his food by his slave. His eldest and only son BHURRE KHAN JI, as a child, was taken pity upon by the Raja of Mewar and given a jageer. This occurred around 1800 AD. The family spread over many cities.
Mohiuddin Khan says that the family tree starts from either father and son, or two brothers, namely RAJO JI and KHAJO JI. It is the start of the Chabuk Sawars perhaps even from Lahore, as told by an old lady of that family.
And what about the Gul Bahar colony, some miles away from Kabul, Afghanistan? Isolated from other places, a lush green area, famous for horses and Chabuk Sawars. We will explore that later.
