so ever since i heard tht majority of groomers are mirpuri i started doing research on this ppl. what i found was interesting in that alot of mirpuris and kashmiris are classified as chib rajputs and these guys r descendants of the katoch rajput who converted to islam. the interesting thing is tht the dogras who betrayed the Sikhs are also of katoch lineage. Furthermore, it was there conversion to Islam that also led to many other tribes such as the Bhawpal, Domaal and Kamlak following suite. They are in essence Dogras who have converted to Islam. The Chibs trace their descent from Partab Chand, a Katoch Rajput prince of Kangra, who said to have ended Thakial rule in the Mirpur-Bhimber region, and established the Chib dynasty The other major clans are Jaswal, Guleria, Sibaia and Dadwal and Pathania who are also desecendants of partab chand who are today hindu sikh or muslims it must be noted tht i have never come into contact with people of these clans in real life so i dont know how to compare them with mirpuris and if they share similar cultural attitudes towards women and SIkhs etc
