ancient indian history

Sindhi brahmins

Sindhi Brahmins are a subgroup of Brahmins who originally hail from the Sindh region, which is now a part of Pakistan. The known rulers of the  Brahmin dynasty are:

Chach (632 – c. 668 AD)
Dahir   (668 – c. 711AD)
Raja Dahir was Mohyal brahmin ruler of Sindh, in present-day Pakistan. In 711 AD his kingdom was invaded by Umayyad Caliphate led by Muhammad bin Qasim, where Dahir died, while defending his kingdom. Dahar ruled his kingdom for almost 40 years from 668-711 AD.
Hindu civilization has witnessed a glorious past. Hindu kings were known for their righteousness, fearlessness and valour and were always keen for overall development of their empires and therefore people were very prosperous.  Life stories of these forgotten kings, are source of inspiration for coming generations. Some of the past events in the lives of hindu kings awaken the extinct pride in the minds of Hindus about their religion, nation and culture. Among these ancient upright kings, Raja Dahir  was the last Hindu Brahmin ruler of Sindh. He died while defending his kingdom from Mughal invaders.
