Jat in Delhi
Politics of Jats in Delhi state
Jats have played an important role in the politics of Delhi. Currently out of 360 villages in Delhi , more than 250 villages are inhabited by Jats (real locals of Delhi) and many Jats have settled in Delhi from Haryana, Rajasthan and Western Uttar Pradesh in last few decades.
Delhi was the site of the magnificent and opulent Indraprastha, capital of the Pandavas in the Indian epic Mahabharata, founded around 5000 BC. Hindu texts state that the city of Delhi used to be referred to in Sanskrit as Hastinapur, which means “elephant-city”. A village called Indraprast existed in Delhi until the beginning of the 19th century. The British demolished the ancient village to make way for the construction of New Delhi in the late 19th century.
Archaeological evidence suggests that Indraprastha once stood where the Old Fort is today. Excavations have unearthed shards of the grey painted ware (c. 1000 BC) that some archaeologists associate with the age of the Mahabharata, but no coherent settlement traces have been found.
The earliest architectural relics date back to the Maurya Period (c. 300 BC); since then, the site has seen continuous settlement. In 1966, an inscription of the Mauryan Emperor Ashoka (273-236 BC) was discovered near Srinivaspuri. Two sandstone pillars inscribed with the edicts of Ashoka were later brought to the city by Firuz Shah Tughluq in the 14th century. The famous Iron pillar near the Qutub Minar was commissioned by the emperor Kumara Gupta I of the Gupta dynasty (320-540) and transplanted to Delhi during the 10th century.
There are a number of myths and legends associated with the origin of the name Delhi. One of them is derived from Dhillu or Dilu, a king who built a city at this location in 50 BCE and named it after himself.
Delhi city derives its name from the Dhillon Jats.
History of Jat in Delhi
Prof. B.S. Dhillon writes that Delhi: As the capital of India, it is also the country’s third largest founded hundreds of years ago, Professor Qanungo wrote, “It is not unlikely that this famous city derives its name from the Dhillon Jats, who are still found in large numbers in Delhi district”. Bhim Singh Dahiya supports Qanungo’s assertion by adding, “Its (Delhi’s) old name was Dhillika (ढिल्लिका) as is recorded in the inscription of Someswara Chauhan, in 1169 A.D. Later on the suffix “ka” was deleted and the city was named Dhilli”.
A well known Indian historian, Romila Thapar, indirectly said that Delhi in the earlier times was called “Dhillika”. However, she wrote, “The city of Dhillika (Delhi) was founded by the Tomaras in 736 A.D. The Tomaras were overthrown by the Chauhans”. In order to point out that Tomar and Chauhans are also the clan names of the Jats, Bhim Singh Dahiya remarked, “For example, let us take the clan name Dahiya. Dahiyas in Haryana, Uttar Pradesh and Bhilwara area of Rajasthan (Haryana, Uttar Pradesh, and Rajasthan are the names of Indian Provinces) call themselves Jats.
However, Dahiyas in Jodhpur area (Rajasthan) call themselves Rajputs (historical records show that some of the Rajputs also belong to the Jat background), and Dahiya is also the clan name of Gujars (these people are also related to the Jats). The same is true of other clan names like Tomar, Pawars, Dhanikhads, Bhattis, Johiyas, and so on”.
