According to the bard of the Gulia clan, during the rule of Prithvi Raj Chauhan, Badli, a village in jhajjar, was ruled by Raja Badra Sen. Two Saiyad Sardars, Nasir Hussain Mashade and Ata-Ulla Mashade came from Kabul to Badli under the leadership, of Bir Saiyed Hussain to destroy Haryana and they became rulers after killing Badra Sen, after that Bir Saiyed Hussain was killed by Gulia Jats. Gulia Jats have very proud history they enjoyed their power and won every war they fought. Almost whole haryana was controlled by Prithvi Raj Chauhan, but he was never succeeded even after four attacks to overpower the region of Gulia Jats. Gulia Jats are very brave and spirited fighters they overpowered and dominated many of the Muslim invaders and chauhans. When they conqueror Timur Lane was supervising the massacre of Delhi, a Gulia youth named Harveer Gulia waged war against him and eventually drove him out. There are 24 villages of Gulias near Badli (jhajjar district) and two other villages (Rurki and Sabti) a bit away from there. There are 12 more villages across the Yamuna. Gulia Jats can be found throughout Northern India and Rajasthan. Gulia Jats are rich, powerful and proud people.

The battle of Delhi at the time that Timur was looting Delhi, and putting the population to the sword 20,000 warriors of the Gulia army, made a surprise attack on the 52,000 strong army of Timur in the middle of the night, and killed 9,000 of them, and let their corpses be swept away in the river Yamuna. As soon as dawn came these heroic soldiers of the Panchayat returned to outside the city walls. The battle carried on like this for three days. Timur Lung got frustrated, left Delhi and advanced toward Meerut.

The battle of Meerut Timur, with his numerous and powerful army, with much weaponry, advanced towards Meerut. In this land, Timur's army was given no space to breathe. The battles continued all through the day. Wherever the Army of Timur would stop for the night, the Panchayat army would attack, and uproot them. The heroic Devis (goddesses- women) would deliver food and war material to their soldiers wherever they were. The warrior maidens would attack and loot the supplies of the enemy. The 500 horsemen were doing their duty by keeping everyone together and bearing information. As supplies were not reaching them, the army of Timur started to go hungry. Whichever village came in its path would be destroyed. Becoming frustrated Timur advanced towards Haridwar.

The battle of Haridwar Beyond Meerut, to Muzzafarnagar and Saharanpur, the Gulia army fought fiercely with Timur and did not let his army take hold (grip). The Supreme General, the Deputy Generals and the Generals were handling their armies well. The army of Timur reached Tuglakpur- Pathrigarh, which is 15 km south of Haridwar. In this land the army of the Panchayat fought three major battles with the army of Timur.

Harveer Singh Gulia attacked Timur The Deputy Commander Harveer Singh Gulia, along with 25,000 warriors of the army, made a fierce attack on a big group of Timur's horsemen, and a fierce battle ensued where arrows and spears were used There over 2,000 hill archers joined the Panchayat Army. One arrow pierced Timur's hand. Timur was in the army of horsemen. Harveer Singh Gulia charged ahead like a lion, and hit Timur on his chest with a spear, and he was about to fall under his horse, when his commander Khijra, saved him and separated him from the horse.[2] (Timur eventually died from this wound when he reached Samarkhand). The spearmen and swordsmen of the enemy leapt on the Harveer Singh Gulia, and he fainted from the wounds he received and fell. At that very time, the Supreme Commander Jograj Singh Gujar, with 22,000 Mulls (warriors) attacked the enemy and killed 5000 horsemen. Jograj Singh himself with his own hands lifted the unconscious Harveer Singh Gulia and brought him to the camp. But a few hours later, the hero warrior Harveer Singh achieved martyrdom.
