The Scythian tribes called Jats had over-run parts of Northern India by 200 A.D. However since their numerical strength was minute it was only a matter of time before they were culturally absorbed into Hindu India. The Jat tribes adopted Hinduism but fiercely retained their tribal customs. If one travels in Sikh Jat villages one is struck by the persistence of cultural artifacts which are completely alien to Hindu tradition. And then there is the very distinctive Jat look – very tall males and females, light golden brown skin color, and children who have a tawny blonde hair color until they are about two years old. The latter is a dead give-away of Scythian racial heritage.
The Hindus who were aghast that the Scythian converts did not adhere completely to Hindu customs and social constructs, invented the mythology that the Jat tribes were Khastryias (the Hindu Warrior Caste) who had been made into Sudras (untouchables) by the gods for some transgression.
With the coming of the muslim invaders into India, the forcible conversions of Hindus in Northern India led to many Scythian tribes converting to Islam due to social pressure, material inducements or plain physical coercion. With the coming of Guru Nanak, the majority of Hindu Jat clans adopted Sikhism en mass and voluntarily. The conversion process was very simple. The Clan Chief changed his religion and the clansmen followed willingly. It is called clan loyalty. There was a quality of Sikhism which instantly appealed to the Jat Clans who had very long tribal and racial memories. It was the fierce independence of the religion, the equality of females, the over-powering and transcending Word providing a direct channel to the ether. And with the sanction of the Sikh Religion, the long war to assert the supremacy of the Khalsa Knighthood started. A hidden, silent and brutal little war which is continuing on today. It may have something to do with Scythian racial memories. But you will not know anything about this, unless you study and understand a secret racial revisionist history.
Note: (1) Jat clans in India outside of the Sikh Jat clans are not truly Scythian. Racially they have been absorbed by the Hindu castes and only retain Scythian tribal clan names.
(2) Due to the historical prestige of the Jats many non-jats adopted Jat clan names such as : Mann, Bhullar, Sidhu etc. These personages are not racially Scythian.
Major Jat Sikh Scythian Clans
The major Scythian Sikh clans are: Bhullar, Dhillon, Mann, Bains, Ghuman, Bhattal, Brar, Sidhu, Grewal, Dhaliwal, Sandhu, Virk and Gill.
Historical Aside: The Grewal clan considered their females to be so beautiful that they would not permit them to marry outside the clan. In response to the on-going resentment of other Jat (Scythian) clans, the Grewal (pronounced Garehvaal) clans formally met in convention in 1912 to debate and resolve this prickly issue and decided by resolution to continue the policy. Even today, if one travels through pure Grewal villages, one is struck by the beauty of Grewal village girls. The Grewal clans also buttressed their Hawkish attitudes by not permitting females to work in the farm fields and constructing their villages as forts with high walls.
So today, the original Scythians are either Hindus, Moslems or Sikhs. The Hindu Jat tribes have largely inter-married with the native Hindu populations along caste lines and thus lost any memory of lineage and for that matter they do not contain any significant Scythian genetic material. The Scythians who converted to Islam lost heir culture and language and memories which were supplanted by the idea of the Ummah – universal muslim brotherhood. They also lost their genetic pool over time since marriage in Islam had less restrictions and social barriers.
The Sikh Scythian tribes located in a small part of India maintained their racial memories. Firstly the Sikh Jat Clans had very distinctive looks and they have always been aware of this. Secondly they have always almost without exception married into other Scythian Sikh clans (this has changed after 1984). Lastly Sikhism which accorded with Scythian tribal ideology very well, helped buttress their conception of Jats being a race separate and apart.
