The Gajal or Gadzhal or Muslim Gagauzes (Turkish and Gagauz: Gacal, Bulgarian: Гаджал, Gadžal) are a Turkic subgroup,[clarification needed] closely related to the Gagauz.[citation needed] Their name derives from a common root (Gajal are also sometimes named as Gagauz).[citation needed] The Gajal, however, are Sunni Muslims, unlike the Gagauz, who are Orthodox Christians.[1]
