Their more significant contribution is psychological. If your guy wins, you earn some bragging rights. That makes you feel good even if you don't get anything tangible for your efforts. Win or lose, we must remain active in this field. You cannot expect to be counted unless you participate in the game.
As a community, the single most important factor that can make a real difference is Education. Everything else that matters--jobs, business, politics, influence, recognition, riches, fame or glamor, will follow.
Undivided India remained under slavery for around 400 years. The mentality of slavery is still run high in the blood of people specially those who are in power due to their inheritance of it. These people are still enjoying the power and properties bestowed to them by the Foreign Masters and does not think twice to abuse their own people and their own motherland.
In the above scenario Justice could not be delivered to the people who opposed the foregn rulers as a community, particularly to Gujjars. There were many Gujjars in the past who used to take arms in the in the hand to get the justice. Jagga Gujjars was one of the during British regime. Dula Bhatti was another during Mughal period.
In the absence of political representation of Gujjars, justice was often not delivered to them. Though we had some National Leaders like Iron man Sardar Patel and late Shri Rajesh Pilot, these leaders were known for their role played for solving issues of National importance rather than finding some time for their own community. But at the same both of these leaders were proud of their heritage and made sure that injustice could not be delivered to people including Gujjars. This is what we expect from these leaders.
The other leaders like Col. Bainsla are on a mission to uplift the community which had been impoverised particularly during slavery period of the country.
We need leaders of both the kind i,e, . at National level and Community level and fortunately the situation is improving in both the countries which represented undivided India. We should hope that people of slave mentality now would refrain to deliver the injustice to the people particularly Gujjars by shear presence of these leaders. However the the support of community to these leaders on the issues related to them will remain a major factor in this reagard.
The situation in Afghanistan is not known since no Gujjar is known to us at National level at present. Bangla Desh must also be having some Gujjars but because of language problem we know nothing about them. The Gujjars have ruled those part of undivided India for more than 100 years during the days of Gujjar Pratihar Empire since border of the Empire that time was Burma. The inscription of Gujjar Samrat Mahendra Pal ( the Great son of Mihir Bhoja the Great) found from Prathihar-Rajpur in Dinajpur district near Dhaka is a conclusive proof in this regard.
