Dogar (Urdu: ڈوگر‎) is a Muslim Punjabi tribe found mainly in the Punjab region of Pakistan and to some extent also in the Uttar Pradesh state in India. Dogars are agricultural people and are called Zamindar. Prior to the independence of Pakistan in 1947, there were several Dogar communities in eastern Punjab region. The Dogar were settled in Hoshiarpur District, Firozpur District, Hissar, Rohtak and Karnal districts, and in Patiala State (Daska). These communities migrated to Pakistan en masse in dangerous conditions during the turbulent times of the independence.
