You posted this comment in the article . Kakar are khatris from the Punjab and its adjoining areas. They are basically Hindus, while some of them converted to Islam due to whatever reasons. Islam came much later. Khatris are basically Kshatrias, but because there were not wars going on all the time, so these people took up other professions like teaching, trade and other. People in Pothohar belt and regions of Afghanistans were Hindus or Buddhists, and a lot of texts and scriptures have been written by Rishis around this region. Queen Gandhari and her brother Shakuni who also find mention in the Mahabharata, were royals from Afghanistan region. Around 10th century and later, many conversions have taken place, due to conquests from Middle East, and this area has lost it indigenous culture and tradition that encompasses Hinduism..

Kakar's are NOT Khatri's nor do anyone see them as Khatri's. They are a Pashtun tribe of Ghurghast origin from Ghazni who moved into adjacent areas like other Pashtun tribes. Mahabharata is not a history book and its based of Hindu mythology. Therefore i really don't know why you are trying to connect them to imagerniey "rishis" or indians. 99.247.62.117 (talk) 04:46, 17 March 2017 (UTC)

Sher Shah[edit]

I have read articles mentioning the connection between Sher Shah Suri and the Kakar tribe, can a citation for this be provided? I have founf one for the Sur Pashtun tribe to be descended from the Ghori tribe, sharing connection with the Sherwani's who also wrote Sher Shah's memoirs. Can anyone locate a reference for this and add it to this article?--Shanti bhai (talk) 11:47, 24 September 2008 (UTC)

as of May 2010[edit]

Please add citations and footnotes to this article rather than simply ignoring the quality control templates and continuing to add unverified information or gibberish. Cheers!--Jhelyam (talk) 13:12, 22 May 2010 (UTC)


+++ Kalkar Najin, in his book "Sher Shah and His Times", asserts that His father was born in an area between Suleman mountain and present Kandahar province. he mentioned the name of that place in his book which is "Sargargi" in (Toba Kakar Ranges), where the Kakar tribe's sub-branch Ahmed-Khel has been living for centuries and the area is still known as DA SRO TAAL. Toba Kakar is now a Pakistani area bordering Afghanistan. NOTE: Kalkar Najin was an official of Suri Sultanate.

Eighteen sons[edit]

There is a list of 18 biological sons but the list contains 22 names. Did I miss something or does it need to be changed to 22 biological sons? Dreambeaver (talk) 21:54, 9 December 2011 (UTC)

You missed about four years of unsourced editing. I reverted it to the original list from 2007, though I don't have any evidence that it is any more credible than the current list. --Muhandes (talk) 22:50, 10 December 2011 (UTC)
