Panhwar or Panwar (Urdu: پنھوار ‎) are a Muslim Rajput tribe found in Sindh, Punjab and Azad Kashmir in Pakistan. The term Panwhar is used for the Parmar Rajputs clans that have converted to Islam, and are settled in what is now Pakistani territory.

History[edit]

The Panhwar or Panhwer originate from the Parmar Rajputs they converted to Islam during the reign of the Samma Dynasty. Many of the Panhwar even originate from Sufi masters and particularly identify themselves with the legendary story of Umar and Marvi.[citation needed]
