ROYAL JARRAL RAJPUT - RJR
The Royal Jarral Family UK
The Jarral families migrated to parts of the United Kingdom in the 1960's due to turbulence and displacement in Rajouri, Jammu & Kashmir. Some families stayed in the the district. The others were 'Muhajir' (emigrant groups) who left their possessions and good friends in Jaralan and Risia, Rajouri - (Thesils) and traveled on foot to other parts of Kashmir and Pakistan during the partition of India. Over half a million people perished during the migration and around fifteen million became homeless. Also known as the Mountbatten Plan.
Many came as economic migrants and participated in the UK Economy, in areas such as Education, Sports and Politics. Initially, the Jarral Rajputs lived around London town and later moved to other parts of the United Kingdom.
Titles and Styles in the UK
Jarral Rajputs still use their ancestral titles' such as Raja. This title is a form of nobility and means princely ruler. Many other titles were conferred upon by the Mughal emperor of India, Shah Jahan and as a result of the inter marriages that followed.
Whatever the literal meaning and traditional prestige of the rulers' actual title, the British government translated them all as "Princes" in order to avoid the implication that the native rulers could be "Kings" with status equal to that of the British Monarchs. However, the Jarral Rajputs had their own distinctive lineage before the advent of the British Raj. The Rajouri state was autonomously ruled by the Jarral Kings (Rajas) and enjoyed good relations with the British. Rajouri is steeped with history of the Jarral rulers.
The next generation of Rajputs born in the United Kingdom may also prefer to use their ancestral titles and royal prerogative i.e. prince of blood, since the title was conferred on the Jarrals' and does not have any restrictions. Hence, the translation into the English language for the purpose of correctness.
Royal Jarral Heritage in the United Kingdom
The Jarral Kings lineage can still be traced back to Rajouri, Kashmir.
Here in the United Kingdom the Royal Jarrals are spread widely and involved in many humanitarian and charitable organisations.
