    The Marwats are also known as Spin Lohani (“White Lohanis”), and are a cousin tribe of Tokhis, Niazis, Hotaks, Surs and Lodis.

    The Lohani Marwats

    1. Ther is a clear evidence that pashtun are Aryans. (Sher Mohammad Mohmand P-ix).
    2. “The early history of the Marwats is cloudy due to non availability of proper record like other Pashtoon tribes”. Dr.Syed Chiragh Hussain.
    3. The Marwat, or Maorat ( an Indian tribe of thegreat desert) inhabit the Marwat Division of the Bannu District, and are a branch of the Lohani. (H.W.Bellew P-113)
    4. The old Marwats call themselves as Lowanri (i.e. Lohani) Afghans. ( Sher MohammadMohmand P-11).
    5. Lohani is the Lawani Chohan Agnikula Rajput. (H.W.Bellewp-29)
    6. Lohani :- Lohana is the name of a Hindu tribe of the Indian desert.
    Sections are :-Adam, Chandu, Dallo, Khodo, Khwaedad, Mahander, Mama , Rajo, Salar, Tapi, Zangi etc.etc. ( Bellew P-28)
    For the sake of brevity, the terminal affixes of “Khel” and “Zai” has been omitted from the sections.(H.W. Bellew P-13)
    7.Lohan. A tribe of Jats, descended from Panwar RajPut Origin. (Rose, H.A., P-36).
    8. The Lohani Marwat ( Maorat) Tribe is different from the Noohani Marwats.. The Noohani Marwats call themselves Marwat Khels and are
    still residing in Village Marwat Khel, District Zarghun Shahr of Paktika Province of Afghanistan. They have not further devided themselves into subtribes. They derive their name fromtheir father name Nooh. They are a tribe of Lodhi Pattans , descendents from Ibrahim Lodhi, grand son of Baitan. (Naemat Ullah Haravi P-449 to 451).
    9. The two i.e Lohani and Noohani tribes are different and are not to be confused and intermixed.

    Can someone please provide me with further information about Kakar tribe? Are the Kakars in India and Pakistan the same Kakars? Is Kakkar the same as Kakkar? If they are then how come the Kakkars in India do not claim to be Pashtun?
