Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Khetran is a Baloch tribe in Balochistan, Pakistan, of Rind (tribe) origin. Their first language is the Khetrani language, which is spoken only by their tribe. They are concentrated in Barkhan District of Balochistan around Barkhan city and Dera Ghazi Khan District, around Vehowa city. Few villages are also present deep inside Punjab like Kot Khetran village near Toba Tek Singh District of Punjab. According to oral tradition among Khetrans they took a guest in from the east during the reign of Mughal emperor Akbar, later it transpired that their guest was a convicted man in the Mughal Court. The Mughals asked for the man (known as Ram Sunara, Sunara means goldsmith) to be returned but the Khetrans refused as he was their guest and they had to provide him with protection. As a result Akbar sent an army to Vehowa to deal with the Khetrans. Khetrans lost thousands of lives in the conflict.show more
