Not illustrated. 1895 edition. Excerpt: ...for the most part other than Gujars. We think this objection of very little weight, because it is improbable that among Muhammadan tribes of Hindu origin difierent rulcs prevail as to this matter. ' It must be admitted then, that a good many cases of acquiescence in alienations which would not be sanctioned by Muhammadan law have occurred. We are not however much pressed by them, as we think they may be set down to a different cause than a special rule of custom justifying them. The entries in the Wajib-ul-arz are important evidence opposed to the existence of such a rule, and the weight of judicial decisions distinctly preponderates on the same side. We therefore conclude that the special custom contended for by the defendants has not been established. We afiirm the decree of the lower Court, and dismiss the appeal with costs. Appeal dismissed.
