      I think you'll get better answers in the society forum.

      All Khans are Pathan, but all pathans are not Khan, ... but majority of Pathans use Khan as their last names! ...

      Now Khans have sub casts as well, I am a proud KHAN and my sub caste is Yousuf Zai, we are called as Pathans, and they are spread all over the world, but the origion is either Afghanistan and NWFP areas ...

      there are 100s sub caste, but the most famous, educated and high in numbers are Yousuf Zai... they are living in Afghanistan, Pakistan and in india as well!

      Sorry to BUST Your Bubble Mr/Ms Rumi.........

      I too am a "KHAN".................:biggthumb

      Just LikeThe Late "Malik Amir Mohammad Khan" Gov of West Pakistan and "Malik Noor Khan" Pak Air Force Chief!

      I certainly Know my ancestry back to Year 1000........

      So wake up from your delusion that Khan is a Caste...........

      It is just like saying that "Patel" is a Caste...........

      And more recently....Bilawal Zardari acquired his Mother's Maiden Name Bhutto..............does that mean now Bhutto is sub caste of Zardari???????

      Brilliant , I think you've answered my question.Thanks.

      But just to finish I know a few people that have the surname Khan they are not Pathans but Gujar , unless Gujar is another sub caste.

      Anyway , thanks again

      I need help on an assignment relating to the caste systems in pakistan , In particular I need some info on the caste "Khan" do they have sub castes, do they live in any particular region in Pakistan etc etc.

      The only bit of info on the net I can find is on Wikipedia , not much I'm afraid.

      Any information no matter however little will help.
      Thank you in advance.

      I know about our family history ranging back about a hundred years. I do know that their is a book on our family history from ferozsons and growing up I have seen and read a bit about it.From what I understand there are subcategories like Yusuf zai, Mehmand, Niazi. I can find more about that apparently my brother is a history buff for what I have seen

      Thanks :-)

      Yeah I know some Punjabi, Rajput, Siraki, Potohari, Niazi etc also use Khan as part of thier names, but they are not origional Khans, ... they are mixed up generations! Like if a Khan marries a Punjabi or a Rajput or hinko person, and as a result thier kids get 'khan' as part of thier names! ... its a mixed caste, not pure pathans! ...

      Khan living in india got married with locals, and have thier generation thier! ...
      A pure Khan is white-pink, well built person! but these days you can witness a black or dark khan too... they are mixed...

      My grand-grand Papa was moved from Peshawar or Jalal-Abad(Afghanistan) to india, he got married to another Khan thier and hence we have our family tree! ... in india Aamir Khan, Salman, SRK, Dilip (Yousuf Khan) , Qadir Khan etc are having similar back grounds as of mine! ... india is not origion for Khan! Origin of Khans is only NWFP and Afghanistan :-)

      We also have some Khan by title, they have nothing to do with Pathans but they got this title by Britishers when they were governing indo-Pak :-)

      Not all Khans are Pathan...Infact we have family members with the surname Khan who are Jatt.

      That must be an interesting read , can you ask your brother if he has any information on Kashmiris, I read somewhere that they originated from Iran and then migrated to Kashmir eventually filtering into India / pakistan.I am interested in the sub caste Mughal Mir in particular.

      Thanks.
