Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Kupchanis are a Baloch sept, now represented by only a few families in Bhakkar. Kupchani traditions hold that they fled from Persia into Baluchistan whence they were expelled by the Marri, Bugti, and Kahiri septs of Baloch. They also consider themselves to be an offshoot of the Qaisrani tribe of Sanghar tehsil (now a district) in Dera Ghazi Khan, whose chief is reported to keep the genealogical tree. In the eastern Kachhi region, the Marris, Bugtis, and Kahiris all say that, prior to their advent into that tract, it was held by a people called Kupchani of Jat origin or status. This tradition lends support to the theory that Baluchistan was once occupied by Jat, who were driven out by the Pathan, Brahui, and Baloch.show more
