Ashwani Kaul says To the anonymous poster before me - If you would have read what the main page said - "This field being Yes does NOT imply that all Raina's are Kashmiri, it just says that some Raina's are Kashmiri" Similarly - Not all Wali's are Kashmiri, but some Wali's are kashmiri. No one is trying to prove anything here - this site just collects surnames and facts or stories about them. Please do not use inflammatory language like this here.
