Bhatti tribe

Bhati (also spelled Bhatti) is a clan of jutts and Rajputs found in India and Pakistan. The Bhati Rajputs (also known as yadeva) claim Chandravanshi origin.
In Jaisalmer, the Bhati clan sometimes refer to themselves as the Yadavpati, reflecting their claimed mythological descent from Krishna and the Yadu or Yadava.Yadevas drived from chanderbunci rajputs and Raja chander and Raja surij were brothers who belong to Hazrat jatt bin sindh bin kosh bin Ham bin Nooh or Sam bin Nooh alaih islam and they were from the Race of Hazrat Shees bin Adam alaih Islam.
Hind and Sindh were also real brothers and both of them ruled Hind and Sindh states.

Some Bhatis were nomadic cattle-keepers and farmers. In the years preceding the Indian rebellion of 1857, these groups lost land by decisions made by the British East India Company, which assigned to Jat peasants grazing lands formerly frequented by the Bhatis in the Delhi and Haryana regions. The British were not enamoured of nomadic tribes, whom they thought exacted protection in the areas that they visited, and the policies of land reform were designed in part to limit this mobility.
At least some of the Bhati Rajput of Rajasthan were among the communities that practised female infanticide between 1883–1998. One princess, a daughter of the Hindu Bhati Rajput ruling family in Dipalpur, was married to Salar Rajab, a Muslim ruler, and gave birth to Firuz Shah Tughlaq. This was one of several examples of inter-religious royal marriage alliances during the period of Turkic Muslim rule in India. Rajput Bhati princesses were also married into the royal family of Jodhpur.
In some parts of modern Pakistan, especially in the Northern and Central Punjab, low-caste doms (or Mirasi singers/dancers) now also call themselves 'Bhattis'; a fact deeply resented by the authentic Bhatti Rajputs of Pakistan.
