Template talk:Rajput Groups

Gurjar and Ahir are not gotras, but ethnic groups !!
Hi! The Gurjars and Ahirs should not be listed in this template; provided that the Gurjars and Ahirs are two ethnic groups and not two clans/gotras (in Hindu society, the term gotra means clan). Rajput people do not have Gurjar and Ahir as their surname, even. Does anyone thinks otherwise ?! ← Abstruce 17:28, 18 May 2013 (UTC)
An IP keeps adding Yadava to the template. Please can we see some reliable sources for that ancient community being Rajputs. Please note that they are not the same group as Yadav and that even that other group are not Rajput. There was much discussion of the issues over a prolonged period on both those article talk pages but things have been settled for months now. Thanks. - Sitush (talk) 05:10, 5 December 2013 (UTC)
Dear Sir, Greetings!! I have no doubt that you have gone through the reliable sources before deciding but still I feel that the material available on the titles like "Rajput", "Kshatriya", "Yadavas", "Jaats", "Gurjars", "Chandravansh", "Suryavansh" etc., is far away from the ground realities and the so called Indian Mythology. When you say "The Reliable Sources", I understand that the mythological or religious text cannot qualify as to be the reliable one, the reliability of the foreign writers may also be questioned on the issue of poor understanding of indian culture of which they were not a part. But, still in fact, the Mythological scripture and sculptures are the prime source of the Indian cultural history and hence cant be totally ignored. In fact all these mentioned titles of cultural categorization of indian people is nothing but based on myths only. The origin of all even of the Rajputs is marked under doubts by almost all the famous historians as their openions differ from one anorher. Where ever we study about the Kshatriya class of indian society we definitely come across the words like "Yadava", "Jats", "Gujars" as the people who later lost their ancestral status or in some other context. I with respect submit the following links which I found http://books.google.co.in/books?id=-fC1npmqi_MC&pg=PA315&dq=yaduvanshi+ahir&hl=en&sa=X&ei=k0bVUpX6IIi4rgfH5YDoBQ&ved=0CEcQuwUwBA#v=onepage&q=yaduvanshi%20ahir&f=false page 315 http://books.google.co.in/books?id=nqvloPNdEZgC&pg=PA44&dq=yaduvanshi+ahir&hl=en&sa=X&ei=k0bVUpX6IIi4rgfH5YDoBQ&ved=0CDEQuwUwAA#v=onepage&q=yaduvanshi%20ahir&f=false page 44 http://books.google.co.in/books?id=xQM9voN21ekC&pg=PA182&redir_esc=y#v=onepage&q&f=false http://books.google.co.in/books?id=ZFV0XXoL5vcC&pg=PA27&redir_esc=y#v=onepage&q&f=false there are many more which can be mentioned here..........Mahensingha I am no way interested in who is included and who not but to say that the wiki articles shall be reliable and i request all the writers and editors to please keep wiki near to historical and cultural realities. The articles on wiki shall remain informative and should not be misguiding. On this ground of Reliable Sources, these mentioned categories are excluded from this list and at all other places but I am really surprised that How "Lodhi" is part of this list can anyone please clarify this by giving some reliable source so that it can be added to my personal knowledge as well. Thanx Mahensingha (talk) 13:22, 15 February 2014 (UTC)
- Judging by your sources, you are in fact conflating Yadav and Yadava and this alleged connection was specifically referred to by me because it has been rejected by the community. I've no idea about Lodhi, sorry: that is one of the communities that I've got on my to-do list. - Sitush (talk) 22:59, 21 February 2014 (UTC)
