RAJESHWAR DHAR says 'DHARS' ARE ABORIGINAL KASHMIRIS N SOME KEPT ON MIGRATINGD TO OTHER PARTS OF INDIA DUE TO TYRANNY OF MUSLIMS N MUSLIM RULERS. THOSE WHO HAD WILL N POWER CONTINUE TO BE PART OF KASHMIR TILL DATE. ORIGINAL DHARS BELONGED TO SAFAKDAL OF SRINAGAR KASHMIR FROM WHERE MATA RUPA BHAWANI WAS BORN. SHE WAS GREAT GRAND DAUGHTER OF MERRU DHAR N I AM PART OF THIS CLAN BEING 17TH GENERATION. SO WHAT IS THE CONFUSION ABOUT, IT IS QUITE POSSIBLE THAT DHARS FROM BENGAL WOULD BE BELONGIMG TO SAME CLAN AS SIRA ZU DAULLAH N HIS SON HAD GIVEN SHELTER TO HOST OF KASHMIRI PANDITS IN LUCKNOW, ALLAHABAD, BENGAL ETC AS HE RULED OVER THESE PLACES . THE QUESTION IS THAT ONE HAS TO FIND ONES ORIGIN N CO RELATE. IN THE PROCESS TOO,SURNAMES, CASTES ETC DO KEEP ON CHANGINGN CAN TAKE DIFFERENT OPINIONS , AS THE SOCIETY IS ALWAYS IN THE STATE OF FLUX. AS FAR AS I KNOW MY FAMILY BELONGS TO 'DHAR CLAN' OF SAFAKADAL BEING DIRECT DESCENDENTS OF GOPAL DHAR , BROTHER OF MATA RUPA BHAWNAI HAVING 'DHAR BHARDWAJ' AS GOTRA TO WHICH ALL DHARS OF THIS CLAN BELONG. OUR ANCESTPRS HAVE HELD PREMIUM POSITIONS WITH KINGS, NAWABS, MUSLIMS RULERS , PESKIRS DURING MUSLIM RULERS IN LAST 500 YEARAS IN PRE PARTITION NORTH INDIA INCLUDING KASHMIR N LATER IN POST PARTITION WITH GOI. SO OTHER KASHMIR SURNAMES LIKE KOULS, BHANS, ZUTSHIS, KILAMS ETC HAVE HELD. IN URDU LANGUAGE THE PRONUNCIATION DHAR IS NOT POSSIBLE, SO THE SURNAME DHAR OF CONVERTS CHANGED TO DARS... WE HAVE DARS IN PAK ACCESSED KASHMIT TOO BEING CONVERTS. THIS IS HISTORICAL FACT N ONE NEEDS TO CO RELATE ONES ANCESTRY LIKE ME ... THANKS N BEST WISHES.

Jeevan Koul says Dhars are originally from Kashmir thereis no doubt about it. Kashmir always remains a disputed place. Since the invasion of muslim rulars like Budh Sikan, Sultan Shal, Rinchan and Mougals Kashmiris always facing Islami Jehad which is the most unfortunate sufferer of Religious violence, be it at the hands of Islam. It is noted in the history of Kashmir that pandits were forceably converted to islam and otherwise 1) The Hindus will not construct any new temples under the rule of Muslims. 2) They will not repair old temples fallen into ruins. 3) They will respect Muslims. 4) They will not dress like Muslims. 5) They will not ride a horse with saddle & bridle 6) They will not put on a ring. 7) They will not carry swords or bows & arrows. 8 ) They will not adopt Muslim names 9) They will not harbour spies or act as spies 10) If any relation of their’s wants to embrace Islam, they will not oppose it. 11) If a Muslim comes to attend a Hindu meeting he will be respectfully received. 12) They will receive Muslim travelers into their houses & provide them hospitality. 13) They will not prevent Muslim travelers from staying in their temples & shrines. 14) They will not mourn their dead loudly. 15) They will not buy Muslim slaves. 16) They will not build houses in neighborhood of Muslims. 17) They will not sell intoxicating drinks. 18) They will not carry their dead near the grave-yards of Muslims. 19) They will not openly practice their customs & usages among Muslims. 20) They will not give up their traditional dress so that they can be distinguished from Muslims. 21) If a Muslim wants to marry hindu woman, no one will oppose. 22) They will not celebrate any festivals i.e, Navreh, Janamsatam, Zeyth Asthami and Shivratri therefore The episode of herath (Shivratri) is well known to every Kashmiri that when a Afghani ruler in Kashmir namely Jabbar Khan decreed that Kashmiri Pandits must celebrate Shivratri in month of Haar (i.e. around July) since it was not a big deal for snowfall to happen in Kashmir in Phalgun (i.e. around Feb or March). Forced by the decree Pandits celebrated Shivratri once more at peak of summer that year - and it actually snowed that day in summer. The incident is still recalled by Kashmiri's in a folk rhyme just recall the kashur rhyme “Vuchton' ye Jabbar jandhe' Haar-as te' korun wande') Therefore, Kashmiri pundits felt unsafe in those circumstances and they preferred to leave Kashmir and settle in the falflung areas like Kishtwar, Dachan, Marwah, Bhadarwah, Poonch etc., may be Gujrat and Bengal also. Further, it is pertainent to mention here that all the muslims of Kashmir were pandits they must read their own history of ancient Kashmir and also notice your surnames Kashmiri pandits Dhar and became Dar when converted to islam similarly Bhat became Butt Wanchoo became Wani some have changed some are still running with the same caste Kouls, Pandits Rishi Maliks, Guru etc., only eleven brave hindu families could save themselves

Arun Dhar says I am originally from Bengal (Bangladesh to be specific), my last name is Dhar, gotra Bharadwaj. Mostly, I grew up in Canada. I know many Indians here (including kashmiri), and they think I am a Kashmiri because of my look and last name, but when I tell them I am neither Kashmir nor a Brahmin, they find it difficult to believe, which made me interested in doing bit of digging about my origin and I ended up here. Am I really of Kashmiri origin?

Kashmiri Muslims who are recent converts have same sir names as KPs,including,kaul,pandits,handoos,Bhat Thier is social hiarchy about Sirnames among both.though Muslims look down on Muslims with Bhat surname as it resembles Like BHTTAS the native name Kashmiri Pandits.Though BHATTS were a learned community There is a small book named Sociology of names & nicknames of Kashmir by one T.N.Koul Nick names,Sirnames are not Gotras

Ahsan Dar says Watch this page User:Dar tribe Dar((Urdu: ڈار , Kashmri: डार )) famous tribe of Kashmir.People belonging to Dar tribe are found in various regions including Kashmir ,Punjab and in other regions of India and Pakistan .Dar is famous martial tribe of Kashmir.There are three theories about the origin of Dar.One theory is that their ancestors were Jews because many people with surname Dar are found in Israel and America.Second theory about the origin of Dar tribe is that they are the descendent of raja of Kashmir named Damar after that they were called Damar for centuries which change into DAANGER.With further passage of time DAANGER changed into Dar.Third theory about the origin of Dar tribe is that they are brahmin and Dhar and Dar tribe are same.But in Kashmir Dhar and Dar tribe are considered different .Dhar are typical brahmin tribe but Dar tribe is rajpoot tribe. Services During Reign of Muslim SultansEdit History of Kashmir is full of services of Dar tribe.This tribe has been very powerful from Reign of Rajja of Baramula named Damar who was Ancestor of Dar tribe.But power of Dar tribe was on its peak during the reign of Muslim Salateens.Malick Saif Dar was the prime minister of Kashmir during Shahmiri rule.And Malick Ali Dar was also deupty ruler(naib ul sultanat) and prime minister during the reign of Yaqoob Shah Chak.Bahram Dar was also in prominent position in Darbar of emperor of Kashmir.These people were called King Maker and there was difficult to rule in Kashmir without their support.

Santonu Dhar says I think Dhars are originated from Kashmir. They are Brahmin. When they migrated to bengal, they were being regarded as kayastha as they were not living life as Brahmin or may be they married to members of kayastha families.

They belong to the Srinagar Valley and have been living in outskirts of Shankracharya temple since 500 AD( Kashmiri:दर( Devanagari), ڈار( Nastaleeq)), is a Kashmirisurname (kram), found among individuals native to the Kashmir Valleyof India, [ 1 ]as well as Kashmiri émigrés who have migrated to the Punjab, [ 2 ] [ 3 ]a region divided between India and neighbouring Pakistan. [ 4 ]The castename is shared among Hindusand Muslims. [ 5 ] [ 6 ] [ 7 ] [ 8 ] [ 9 ] History and origins The Dharkramoriginates from the honorific given to a village head, strongman or a warlord of a jagir. [ 10 ] [ 11 ] [ 12 ]This title was often used in the 12th century and stayed fashionable up until the 14th century.

Sam says Kashmiri muslim cultivators living in village of kashmir have surname Daar just because it means a villager cultivator. Hindu surname Dhar is a brahmin surname which has nothing to do with kashmiri muslim Daars who are village cultivators and are most likey of dardic origin related to other dardic cultivator muslims living in gilgit and chitral.

Avishek Dhar says I believe that our family migrated from Kashmir.As i heard from my grandfather and elders from my family that we were staying in moymoysing(District) which is now in Bangladesh and we came there from India's northern region.It's been said that we came there for business and till now our family is basically a business family. But here we say we are kayastha and the rest is our physics has a resemblance with the kind of north people. So may be we we Bengali Dhar have migrated from kashmir.

M. Usman Dar says Dar is differeent than Dhar. Dhar is a brahmin surname found only among kashmiri Batta. Dar on the other hand are predominantly descendants of non-brahmin rural agricultural population of kashmir and are almost 99% muslims. Pronunciation of Dar is with hard D and is pronounced as Daar in kashmiri. Dhar is totally different and is pronounced with soft D and liguistically it is impossible for Dar and Dhar to be of the same origin. I have never seen in my life any kashmiri muslim who has surname of Dhar , they are just Dar. And a very important thing about Dar mulims kashmiris is that they are almost all agriculturists and quite agressive in their character, the closest tribe to them is Lone which is another kashmiri muslim kram also found chiefly in villages of kashmir doing agriculture. I have no doubt whatsoever in my mind that both Dar and Lone are descended from ancient original dardic population of kashmir valley and hence they have agressive characters like all other dardic tribes found in gilgit and chitral and pashtun lands.

Heer Dar. says Yes! The Dars or the Dhars are from kasmiri pundit origin originally . But due to the violence in the valley they shifted to other areas of India like Bengal (for trade)and gujrat also for trade. But a large of these Original people from kashmir can befound in jammu, kolkata, himachal and Delhi. They were brahmin warrioirs. They were the modt selfdependentwho also gave freedom to read and write to their daughters and girls. In the mod 18-th century the dar girls used to run businesses in handicrafts. So basicaly they origin from srinagar (anantnag, kangan and mattan). A part of this community can be found in the village ustehar, tehsil baijnath, district Kangra(Himachal Pradesh. ) The kaul and dar community lives there. By the way most of dar oundits are today converted to muslims but still hindus exist too.The Dar and the Kaul-also the khosa, kar ganju are hail from kasmir valley.

Arjun Dhar says All Dhars are originally from Kashmir. Over time, many Dhars decided to move across India. Subsequently, many Dhars decided to return to Kashmir, which is why Kashmir has so many Dhars. All Dhars have origins in Kashmir. The Dhars across India are of Kashmiri descent.

ARUN DHAR says HISTORY OF DHAR Dhar also spelled Dar is a Kashmiri surname (kram), of Brahmin origin, found among individuals native to the Kashmir Valley of India, as well as Kashmiri émigrés who have migrated to the Punjab,a region divided between India and neighbouring Pakistan.The caste name is shared among both Hindus and Muslims. The Dhar kram originates from the honorific given to a village head, strongman or a warlord of a jagir. This honorific was prevalent during 12 century AD (Jaisimha) and remained in vogue up until the 14th century AD. In antiquity, many Dhars migrated to Gauda, and a large amount later returned to the Kashmir Valley. Nevertheless, to this day, there are many Dhars who are found in that region of Bengal. It is stated to be a pure gotra name. Dhar Bharadvaja is the name of their gotra. However, many scholars are of the view that Dhars are the descendants of Damras, the war lords and a troublesome non-Brahmanic tribe of ancient Kashmir. Birbal Dhar was a leader in the Kashmiri resistance to Afghan rule in the early 19th century. He led a deputation which persuaded Sikh ruler Maharaja Ranjit Singh to invade Kashmir in 1819, which ended Afghan rule.

Rakesh Kr Koul says surnames of kashmiri pandits were influenced by their place of living ,some typical attributes e.g., those who had a pit in their lawn were called Khoda those who had hump in their lawns were called taing those who used to take food in bowls were called kawal or kaul those who used to wear socks were called mozas those who lived at kilam ,kulgam were called kilam we newer tried to keep our surnames on the basis of our gotras like datatri, kashyup and nearly lost our ancestral touch. etc we newer thought to unite and have cohesive community feeling and sacrifice for our community men and women

Bansilal says Dhars are originated from Kashmir. Coincidently, some times ago I was reading a book about history of Bengal, there I found, during early mongol rule, many Kashmiris setteled down in Bengal, and Bengali Dhars are direct descendent of them. I guess same will be true for Gujarati Dhars. In fact,I have seen few Bengali and Gujarati Dhars, and they looks like Kashmiri. safaya, its not a place of joke, people are doing serious talking here.

Dr. N. K. SAFAYA says Dhars originally came from Bengal, These were two Bengalis Vaman Dhar and yaman Dhar brothers who use to come every year to kashmir for trade, in one winter they were held back in the valley and fancied two kashmiri pandit girls and finally married these girls this dates back to roughly to 1360 around the dhars of kashmir are direct decendents of the same dhars

Alpana says I feel all Dhars are originally from kashmir. Over a period of time many families may have migrated to other parts of India and settled down slowly imbibing the culture, food habits etc. of that particular region. Hence we find Dhars amongst Gujratis and Bengalis too.
