Julaha

Who are they?

The Julaha are an important artisan community who weave cloth on handlooms. They live in Uttar Pradesh (2.9 million), Himachal Pradesh, Delhi, Haryana, Jammu and Kashmir and Chandigarh. The term Julaha is derived from the Persian word julah, meaning ball of thread. The word is commonly associated with the Hindi jala or jali, meaning interlaced thread.

The Julaha are listed as a Scheduled Caste (SC) under the provisions of the Indian Constitution. This grants them and other SCs many benefits like fixed, reserved quotas in government jobs, in admissions to various government-sponsored professional colleges and welfare schemes for economic and social improvement and reserved seats in parliament.

Language

The Julaha speak the local languages of the states they live in. In Himachal Pradesh, where they live mainly in rural areas, they speak Kangri and Chambali. They speak The Indo-Aryan language of Haryanvi in Haryana. In Delhi, where they are migrants from Rajasthan, Haryana and Uttar Pradesh, they speak Rajasthani, Haryanvi or Hindi. All these languages use the common Devanagari script. In Chandigarh they speak Punjabi and write in the Gurumukhi script.

The Julaha belong to the Shudra caste, the fourth and lowest class of the Hindu caste system. The higher castes consider the Julaha as a lower class especially in rural area and do not accept food and water from them. The Julaha, in turn, do not exchange food with communities considered lower than them like the Churha (sweeper), Chamar (tanner), Dhanuk (laborer) and Raigar (tanner).

What Are Their Lives Like?

The Julaha used to be handloom weavers but industrial change has introduced cheaper, machine-made textiles to the market which has caused them to look for work in other fields. Some still continue weaving, making coarser cloth for bedspreads or Kharad (a large, thick cloth on grain at harvesting time to protect it from getting wet in the rain) and dhurries (floor rugs). Previously they wove intricate designs and patterns in beautiful colors. Cooperatives have been formed to regulate prices and help the Julaha sell cloth at local markets.

Some Julaha have taken up other professions and work as skilled and unskilled laborers, run small scale industries, shops or are businessmen. In the hilly state of Himachal Pradesh, they work for daily wages in building roads and forestry. They sometimes also work as farm laborers or plough land on a contract basis. Some Julaha rent out threshing machines during the harvesting season. Many Julaha do not own land, like those of Chandigarh. Breeding and caring for animals, tailoring, masonry, dyeing cloth and calico printing is some other types of work they do.

Child labour exists among the Julaha with children learning and working on the looms from a young age. The poor people send their children to work at tea stalls, small roadside restaurants, automobile workshops or factories to earn their living.

The literacy rate is very low and children do not complete their education. They practice family planning in order to have fewer children. They use both local remedies as well as visit clinics. They have benefitted from the facilities provided for them by the Public Distribution System and have electricity, water supplies and are given equipment at subsidised rates. In Himachal Pradesh, they have been allotted land for cultivation.

Customs

The Julaha are endogamous at the community level, i.e. they marry only within the community. They are exogamous at the gotra (clan) level, and sometimes at the village level too. Adult marriages are gradually replacing child marriages and are arranged by family members. Monogamy is preferred and sindur (vermilion), glass bangles, bindi (coloured dot on forehead), and rings for the nose and toes are the marriage symbols for women. Dowry is paid in cash by the bride’s parents to the bridegroom’s family and goods such as utensils, furniture, linen, gold ornaments and clothes are also given. The earlier practice involved the husband paying a bride price to the bride’s family. Divorce is socially unacceptable and rare but can be granted on ground of adultery, cruelty, insanity, impotency or incompatibility. Widows, widowers and divorcees are permitted to remarry. Junior levirate and junior sororate are prevalent and preferred.

Families live as smaller unit with parents and children and also in extended families with other relatives. The family is male-dominated and inheritance is only given to sons. The women are considered lower than men even though they are active in social and religious spheres. In addition to housework, they work as weavers, rear cattle or collect fuel. Urban women work in small industries. The Julaha have a rich tradition of folklore and tales and both men and women sing at celebrations. Women dance at births and marriages. They are good at performing comedy.

The Julaha have panchayats (community councils) at village and regional levels that settle community issues. Political leadership has emerged largely at the village level.

What Are Their Beliefs?

The Julaha are Hindu or Sikh by faith. The Hindus worship the gods and goddesses of Hinduism and celebrate all Hindu festivals. They also observe weekly fasts on Monday, Tuesday and Friday. A Brahmin priest performs rituals. The Himachal Pradesh Julaha have a priest from their own community who is called a purohit. The dead are cremated and the ashes immersed in a river, preferably the Ganges at Haridwar, Uttar Pradesh, which is considered holy. Ancestor worship is prevalent. The Julaha believe in witchcraft and superstition and make use of sorcerers to cure diseases and make their wishes come true.

The Sikh Julaha (living in Chandigarh, Haryana and Delhi) follow Sikhism and revere their ten Gurus as well as their holy book, the Guru Granth Sahib. They believe in the creator of the universe, and do not worship idols and believe that people are created equal and practice service to the community. The priest is called a giani and he conducts prayers at the gurudwara. Sikh festivals are celebrated by them. Some Julaha are also followers of guru-centric sects like the Arya Samaj and Radha Soami.

    • you are right, but Julaha mostly common word used in muslim, in Hindu they are called Kori they are mostly follower of Kabirdas who donot follow brahminasm ( veda sashtra etc). Jhalkari from was from the same caste, even Gautam buddha and Samrat Ashok belong to same caste However in those days there was no caste system but it is becouse of same generation.For more information and division of caste system and their conversion history contact BAMCEF orgnisation or visit to http://www.bamcef.org

  5. Proud to be a Kabirpanthi from Himachal Pradesh. I work as a Manager in a Satellite telecast company at Los Angeles in California. In Himachal Pradesh there is no custom of dowry among Julahas. Exchange of gift takes place during a marriage. Being negelected by Some so called Upper Castes for centuries, many Julahas are no more willing to practice Hindu traditions and are following religions like Dera Sahcha Sauda, Satsang Vias, Christanity and others. Julahas in northern India especially Himachal Pradesh, Punjab and Haryana are doing better as compared to other states.Education graph is incliing to success and people are keen to learn new skills to make better living rather weaving clothes and carpets.

    and people use to tell that they are rajputs, panwar, pundir etc., and on the other hand they use to take benifits of SC reservation. WHY????
    I DON’T WANT TO HURT ANY ONE BUT I WANT TO SAY THE REAL THING THAT…

        Kori may be rajput but not kshaktriya as you might be knowing Jhalkari from was from the same caste, even Gautam buddha and Samrat Ashok belong to same caste However in those days there was no caste system but it is becouse of same generation. there are only four varna Brahmin, Kshaktriya, vaishya (all three are known as Arya and they are foreigner, not Indian origin) and fourth is ‘Sudras’ which are remaining and Original Indian (Mulnivasi) as per category these sudras are divided in open caste (not Upper caste), Backward caste also known as other backward caste (OBC), and aatisudras ( SC/ ST). I hope you might have understood now

    • bandhuvar greetings,
      first of all i want to clear two things which are generally fixed and seen as one-
      1. being SC does not mean that u belong to shudra clan, SC stands for schedule caste , means the cast which has given privilage by the constitution due there inappropriate finance and marginal representation in the state. the people of this class are given reservation as per constitutionary provisions. it is not a matter of shame. for ex. JAT are in OBC that does not mean that they are shudras. we are kept in SC due to our less number as a whole. we were not enough in number and does not have a political leadership, thats why we are not minorities like jains and bodhs. the government for their own sake have given us privilage.
      2. the kumhars, dhobies and other caste like sen, naye they are kept in BC. are they upper than us .no, certainly not they are all service provider, they are servants. but we are the producer of cloth, we do not render service to any of so called high class. we live independently alone. we can be compaired only to farmers who grow thier own crop. but we were not united and few in numbers so we could not get recognition.
      thats why i say that don’t hide yourself and also don’t take the shoulder of jatvas . be julaha and simply julaha.

      • Nagar ji, with due respect i agree to whatever you’ve said above. But we must not forget that all these evil caste system is merely a central dogma which people (stupid people) can’t get over with.
        If we all truly consider ourselves a julaha or Kabirpanthi, then we must not think that anyone is lower or highet than us, but to remain in equity.
        Now if we are trying to separate ourselves from shudras then it’s all right but just think of it , who we are trying to show this difference, obviously to this society which we live in. Otherwise people would think that we are also a shudra, that’s completely true, yes we are shudras.
        Only reason, we’ve got a recognition and respect and money is because of babasaheb Ambedkar…. who was of mahar caste i.e. chamar. Shouldn’t we thank this struggling and brave community. Although we julahas are different from them but still it’s because of them that we could survive. Koriyon aur julaha logon ki ladaai bhi unhone hi ladhi hai aur unka saath dena hi apne uddhaar ki neev hai

        Reply
      • Nagar ji I agree with u being sc doesn’t mean shudra but gov had started to up lift those deprived people but I don’t think that many of them are deprived… There is a need to revise the policy…. Many of us are still using reservation but do u think that every one is deprived many of us have became economically strong but still they are using benefit…. Shame on us THAT WE CAN’T GIVE UP BENEFIT…..

  8. sir , actually you said that julaha belongs to the shudra clan i opposed to this point actually in my opinion we belong to vasya samaj as we are not moderate as todays baniyas so we were marginalilsed to the circumrence of the society. we were not shudra so were unable to mix up with them but the vasyas could let us to climb upto to the real hireachy of ours as then they have to part their bussiness with us. we were the sole producer of cloths. as we have no adequate partonage of any dynasty we were lost in the society.

    • I am KABIRPANTHI JULAHA from west utter pradesh.I couldn’t understand why there are so many subtitles in our caste,like kori,koli,
      raiger,dhanak and many more.
      And there are so many gotra and surnames in our caste so its very difficult to understand about a person who has unique sirname.Like my gotra is RATHAKEE and i think there are no one in the world who has this gotra except our grand family .
      I want to make a group of KABIRPANTI JULAHA community because we are also a comminity.So who belongs to us plz send whatsapp and join group on 9540006756

  42. All pasis were landlords in medieval period in northern India. They had small kingdoms & faught bravely with Mughals and East India Company. They defeated from strong enemies. The capital of Uttar Pradesh, Lucknow is in the name of Lakhana Pasi. The ruins of the forts is now available in Lucknow city. The history of this brave tribe is also ruined. In the British periods opponents defamed their glory and called them barbarous tribes and registered them as barbarous Tribes in the history. The bright history of this brave tribe is ruined by the then ruling people/ govern- ments to destroy their willpower. Like this tribe, all so called barbarous tribes[Kols, Bhils & Santhals] are the molniwasi’s of this pious land. We should study history books & land recards available at government levels and write about Mulniwasis Tribes glorious and rich cultured history for their upliftment of their morals. They were looted by the Moguls & Britishers through their local helpers/supporters.

      • Mr Praveen you are not conceptually cleared about the castes which were enlisted under “Schedule Caste” category at the time when constitution was proclaimed. According to constitution all those castes which were being socially exploited ,suppressed and abused in the society on the basis of Varna system in caste right from ancient India were entitled to come under sc/st category, the reason to mention all such castes in separate category was to make the social upliftment of these groups by giving them a reservation benefit in educational institutions and govt. services so as to cope with economic and social level of other higher castes in the hierarchy of Varna system. All those were high victimized and oppressed by the act of untouchablity in last 150 to 200 years before India got independence, soon after the independence when constitution was granted to free Indians Dr. BR Ambedkar appealed govt. to enlist all these castes under reservation category to raise the level of standards of these groups. If you think that your “Julaha” community was not gone through all these hurdles and obstacles then why you are using this reservation benefit which you don’t deserve according to fundamental cause of reservation policy. Then kindly just give up to other communities who are really downtrodden to till now date for the betterment of mankind.
        My suggestion is that you just go and read policies of constitution(Especially sc/st reservation act) before writing something rubbish stuff on these sites.
        Thanks.

    In India, the Dhanshuka, a weaver community are traditionally associated with the manufacture of bamboo baskets. According to the traditions of the community, they were originally brave fighters who fought many wars for kings Once upon a time they were considered as brave kshtriyas because of their dominating fighting skills. They lost their status after losing wars for many years. They were downtrodden by the winning kings. Years of atrocities left them homeless and backward and for their survival the once prestigious caste switched to petty works . They used to graze buffaloes and were fond of wearing white clothes, and once some of their animals entered muddy waters. To avoid getting their clothes dirty, they let their animals drawn. The Dhanushka speak various dialects of Hindi.
    The peoples of the community, aboriginals of India, were forte in arrow and bow. Thus, they were called Dhanukh which in due course of time became Dhanuk/Dhanuka/Dhank etc.
    Despite, low social ranking in society, this community has contributed a lot to the country. Members of this community died during freedom struggle. As for instance, Shaheed Ramphal Mandal of Sitamarhi District. One of the most acclaimed Hindi Novel writer Phanishwar Nath ‘Renu’ belongs to this community. If we are kshtriya as history says then why some of community leaders are saying themselves dalit, SC,ST to avail the benefit of caste based reservation? Is the caste based reservation is only solution for progress? What we have achieved since independence through reservation? I thik we should introduce our community as kshtriya and favour for reservation on economically base. Your brother O.P.Nirwan(8800998336)
