Nagial Jatt Tribes are found in Mirpur District, Azad Kashmir and as Hindu Nagyal Jatt tribes in Jammu in Indian administered Kashmir.


History and origin

The tribe originates from Manhas Rajputs.[1] Nagyals are originally Suryavanshi Rajput clan from the Punjab region and Jammu and Kashmir in India and Pakistan. It is an off-shoot of Jamwal-Dogra Rajputs, the founders of the city and state of Jammu and its rulers from ancient times to 1948.Both Nagyal Rajputs and Manhas or Minhas Rajputs are both from the same bloodline.The name Nagyal came into existence due to an event that took place. The event was that a mother left her son in a cradle asleep. She went out to visit someone.Shortly she came back and saw that her son was awake and happily playing with a cobra snake. She was shocked to see that the wild venomous snake did not bite the child but, in fact, was trying to protect the child. Other family members were also witness to this event.From there onwards she and her family vowed not to kill snakes.Hence they were referred to as Nagyals (those Minhas Rajputs who do not kill snakes ). Even to the present times Nagyal Rajputs try not to kill snakes. Today majority of this tribe is serving in Pakistan army especially in Pakistan air force.[citation needed]
