Hi Ashok, Recently I have read that there was Jurjistan near Iran, bordering persian empire. Also there are names in Uzbekistan like Guzar, Kasan etc. Among Gujjars before the rise of Gujjar Pratihars the Kushana ( Kasana, Kansana), the descentdent of Kush must have been the leaders. It seems that the Gujjars have conquered the places up to Uzbekistan and named these places after their own name. The Gujjars did not invade Baghdag because there was nothing to invade that time. Also there was a place called Gor near Ajmer. The rulers of that place under the Gujjar Pratihar empire were GorSingh and that is the origin of Gujjar gotra Gorsi. Also the rulers of Pushkar must have been called Pushkarwal ( Poshwal). These must have been the branches of Gujjar Chauhans and after shifting the capital of Gujjar Chauhans from Sakambri to Ajmer must have been employed in the services of maim Chauhan kingdom.
Like Guhils, Dhabi, Solankis are the branches of Gujjar Chawra gotra, the Gorso, Poshwal, Chechi must have been the branches of Gujjar Chauhans.
It is also very likely that Ghori could also be Gujjar since Gujjar have named many names of places in Afghanistan similar to Gurjar Desa like, Nagarhar ( Nagraha, Nagda), Bajauar (Vagad vagar, bagar Bajaur), Ghor ( Ghormandal near Ajmer) etc. etc. Ghor was certainly part of earlier Gujjar empire. This theory also proves the claim of Guhilas of Mewar that these invaders, who were later embraced Muslim religion, were actullay the children of their forefathers like Bappa Rawal since Bappa Rawal was also sent to Afghanistan as a fuedatory king of Gujjar Pratihar Empire of Kannauj at the time Gujjar Emperor Nagabhatta ( The grand father of Samrat Mihir Bhoja Mahan and Guhilas are the branch of Gujjar Chawras.
That could be the reason of trust of Prithviraj Chauhan in Ghori since Prithvi Raj Chauhan allowed Ghori to pass through his kingdom to attack another Gujjar clan Solanki while fighting for supremacy among various Gujjar clans. This could also be reason of Ghori not being so cruel to the local population of present day India as Mahmood gazani or babar and later Akbar and aurangzeb Regards. AP Singh

SOME EXCEPRPTS FROM THE SPEECH OF THE SUPREME GENERAL JOGRAJ SINGH.
' Viroh (Heroes), reflect on the sermon given by Lord Krishna to Arjun in the Gita. For us the door t heaven (moksha) has been opened. That moksha, which the Rishi Munis achieve by doing Yoga, the hero warriors achieve by sacrificing their lives on the battlefield. Save the nation, that is- sacrifice yourselves, the world will honor you. You have chosen me leader. To my last breath I will not withdraw. I salute the Panchayat, and take oath that until my last breath I will defend the soil of Bharat. Our nation has been shaken by the crimes and attacks of Timur. Warriors arise and do not delay. Fight the enemy army and throw them out of the nation."
On hearing this speech a wave of heroism ran through the assembly. 80, 000 warriors and 40,000 maiden warriors kissed their swords and took an oath, ' O General, while we breathe we will obey your orders, and sacrifice our lives for our country'.
The Troops. - spread out from Delhi, to Meerut, Muzzafarnagar, Sahranpur, and Haridwar. On reaching these places they tangled with the armies of Timur, and using Guerilla warfare, they did not them sit still. The enemy army had to escape by the route of the hills and the enemy was chased upto Ambala, and expelled out from the land of Haryana.
THE BATTLE OF DELHI:-
At the time that Timur was looting Delhi, and putting the population to the sword.
20,000 warriors made a surprise attack on the 52,000 strong army of Timur in the middle of the night, and killed 9,000 of them, and let their corpses be swept away in the river Yamuna. As soon as dawn came these heroic soldiers of the Panchayat returned to outside the city walls. The battle carried on like this for three days.
Timur Lung got frustrated , left Delhi and advanced toward Meerut.
THE BATTLE OF MEERUT: -
Timur, with his numerous and powerful army, with much weaponry, advanced towards Meerut. In this land, Timur's army was given no space to breathe. The battles continued all through the day. Wherever the Army of Timur would stop for the night, the Panchayat army would attack, and uproot them. The heroic Devis (goddesses- women) would deliver food and war material to their soldiers wherever they were. The warrior maidens would attack and loot the supplies of the enemy. The 500 horsemen were doing their duty by keeping everyone together and bearing information.
As supplies were not reaching them, the army of Timur started to go hungry. Whichever village came in its path would be destroyed.
Becoming frustrated Timur advanced towards Haridwar.
THE BATTLE OF HARIDWAR:
Beyond Meerut, to Muzzafarnagar and Sahranpur, these warriors fought fiercely with Timur and did not let his army take hold (grip). The Supreme General,. the Deputy Generals and the Generals were handling their armies well. The army of Timur reached Tuglakpur- Pathrigarh, which is 5 Kos south of Haridwar.
In this land three major battles were fought with the army of Timur.
The Deputy Commander Harbir Singh Gulia, along with 25,000 warriors, made a fierce attack on a big group of Timur's horsemen, and a fierce battle ensued where arrows and spears were used (There over2, 000 hill archers joined the Army. One arrow pierced Timur's hand.). Timur was in the army of horsemen. Harbir Singh Gulia charged ahead like a lion, and hit Timur on his chest with a spear, and he was about to fall under his horse, when his commander Khijra, saved him and separated him from the horse. The spearmen and swordsmen of the enemy leapt on the Harbir Singh Gulia, and he fainted from the wounds he received and fell.
1. At that very time, the Supreme Commander Jograj Singh Gujjar, with 22,000 Mulls (warriors) attacked the enemy and killed 5000 horsemen. Jograj Singh himself with his own hands lifted the unconscious Harbir Singh and brought him to the camp. But a few hours later, the hero warrior Harbir Singh achieved martyrdom. 2 In the Jungles of Haridwar, the guard of Timur, made up of 2805 soldiers was attacked by the Deputy commander, warrior Dhula Dhardi and 190 soldiers. The killed many enemy soldiers and all 190 soldiers achieved martyrdom.
3 In the third battle the Supreme Commander Jograj Singh and his heroic warriors fiercely attacked the army of Timur and forced him to flee towards Ambala. In this battle the hero Jograj Singh suffered 45 wounds but he kept his senses and did npt allow to let the Taimur's army reach the Banks of the holy Ganga (Har Ki Pauri).
Timur fled towards Ambala by way of the Hills. This fleeing army of Timur was chased upto Ambala.
The heroic warrior Durjanpal Ahir achieved his place in heaven in the battle of Meerut, at Delhi Gate, with 200 of his soldiers.

In these battles of the 250,000 soldiers of Timur, Indian warriors sent were 160,000 to the banks of river of death, and the dreams of Timur were swept away.
35,000 Indian warriors were martyred.
MARTYDOM OF THE SUPREME COMMANDER. The hero warrior Jograj Singh Gujar passed away after the war in the Jungles of Rishikesh.
During the Muslim invasions it had become a practice to kill Gujjars to terrorise the others populations of India, since it was considered best by them to beat the Imperials first and as a result others will start behaving obediently.
Here is one example how Babar terrorised the local population of India by killing Gujjars. He captured so many Mandars ( mainly children and woman) and taken to Kabul and that is the reason many of the Mandars in Pakistan does not even know that they have Gujjar Pratihars Imperial Heritage since no male adult was left alive.
"It was said that when in the cold season of 1528-9 , the Mandahars (Also written as Mandar is a celebrated gotra of Gujjars who are said to be the direct descendent of Gujjar Pratihars of Mandwar or Mandor and you may find millions of Gujjar Mandahars in and around Delhi) of the area of north of Delhi plundered villages and then defeated Babur’s forces to the number of 3000 men, a force of consisting of 4000 of cavalry and several elephants was sent against them, their settlement was razed to the ground. According to Ahmad Yadgar “ the male Mandars were half buried in the ground and were shot to death to arrows.Abul Fazl quoted as a point about which both sound jurists and innovators are agreed , the opinion that the binding, killing or striking (of) the haughty and the chastising (of) the stiff necked are the part of struggle for empire."

The area beyind Kabul in earlier period was called as Khattan in India. The Gujjar kings serving as fuedatories of Gujjar Empire there were called the Rana of Khattan and hence Khatana. After the fall of Gujjars Empire in 954AD, the other Gujjars kingdoms like Gujjar Chauhan of Ajmer, Gujjar Tanwar of Delhi, the Gujjar Chadellas of Kalinjar, The Gujjar Solankis of Patan, Gujjar Parmars of Malwa, Ujjain , and the former Imperials the Gujjar Pratihar of Kannuaj stopped supporting then and started fighting among themselves. Hence Jai Pal Khatana and Anand Pal Khatana were defeated by Mahmud Gaznavi after a stiff resistance.
Later when a joint finacial help from Kannauj, Ajmer, and kalinjar was sent it was of no use since they already lost much of their fighting power by that time.
