This list has several surnames that are not Khatri surnames.--Vikramsingh 22:07, 12 September 2009 (UTC)

I totally agree and have removed non-Khatri surnames to the best of my knowledge. Have also added back Makan/Makin/Maken/Mawkin (my own surname being Makan, a Punjabi Khatri surname originating from Haria, District Gujrat, Punjab, Pakistan (formerly India)). Whoever has removed this in the past, please contact me and I will explain. Daljit44 19:52, 20 September 2009 (UTC)

Request for semi-protection[edit]

A number of inaccurate edits are being made by anonymous contributor(s) with IP address 122.173.x.x Could this page therefore be semi-protected so that only registered users can make edits. This way, the integrity and accuracy of the page can be maintained. Daljit44 21:09, 20 September 2009 (UTC)

okay, set for 3 months; hopefully the user will log in and then it can be discussed more easily if still an issue. (it is hard to talk to an IP-anon with varying addresses ;-) Robert Ullmann 11:46, 21 September 2009 (UTC)
Robert, many thanks Daljit44 13:57, 29 September 2009 (UTC)

Incorrect edits[edit]

Dear MSNanda, I note that you have added a number of surnames to this page during the last week or so. To the best of my knowledge, none of these surnames are of Khatri origin but are all rather of Jat, Ramgarhia or other origin. Can you please explain why you have added these surnames to what is a page of Khatri surnames? Perhaps you can furnish some evidence to support your edits. Otherwise, would you kindly remove your edits. Thanks. Daljit44 14:05, 29 September 2009 (UTC)

Look Mr Daljit44, first of all my relatives have Jatt and Ramgarhia Surnames, but they are khatris, as they are tradionally merchants and traders. My cousins have surnames like Khanna, Chopra, Tiwana, Dhillon, Bhambra, Virdi, Maan, Bhullar, Sehgal, Bhangu and Basur. So please belive me god promise, iam not lying.--122.173.1.101 18:42, 30 September 2009 (UTC)

Dear MSNanda, With due respect, I am quite confident that these names are not Khatri surnames, as it has been confirmed by the Jatt and Ramgarhia community. It appears that your family might have married into Ramgariah and Jatt community, but that does make them Khatri. For argument sake, if I become a farmer, that would not make me a Jatt or If my family becomes a traditional carpenter, I would not become Ramgariah (Tarkhan). My mum's family is Bedi(Khatri) but my father is Chhabra (Arora), this does not mean that I have now become a Khatri. Each caste and community has their proud history but one should not meddle with historical backgrounds.Warriorsaint 20:18, 3 October 2009 (UTC)

But we punjabis are related to each other.--Msnanda 06:52, 6 October 2009 (UTC)

Dear MSNanda, I note with some regret that you have again incorrectly removed the entry for the surname Makan (and its variant spellings) on 9th October. Can you please explain why you have done this as I posted a specific request above for whoever was doing this to contact me first. I am beginning to suspect that you have a malicious and dishonest motive but I hope that you are just doing this out of ignorance or lack of knowledge. As before, I would be pleased to explain the concept and historical significance of this Khatri Surnames page to you. I await your reply. Daljit44 14:01, 13 October 2009 (UTC)


Iam sorry it was just silly mistake.--Msnanda 20:12, 18 October 2009 (UTC)

hi, this is raghav and i want to add my surname Abbhi to the Khatri surnames list. Our origin is from Hoshiarpur and i can provide the family tree if anyone likes to see that. Please tell me how to go ahead for the same.Raghav507 19:38, 09 November 2009

Dear MSNanda, your remark of the 18th October speaks volumes. To remove an entry incorrectly once can perhaps be classed as a silly mistake. However, as in your case, to remove it on several occasions especially after being made aware not to indicates either a malicious intent to corrupt/distort this valuable Khatri Surnames resource page or simply a level of ignorance which makes you unfit to perform edits. Additionally, your previous comments display a naivety which I find staggering. So, what to do? Would you like to talk over the phone? I would be pleased to discuss the historical and cultural significance of this page with you as I am currently undertaking extensive research in this area. Let me know and we can take it further. In any case, this page now requires extensive editing to make it accurate but I am hoping that we can have a sensible and intelligent debate first to prevent further/future corruption and incorrect entries.

Further Request for semi-protection[edit]

Hi Robert, the semi-protection has now expired but the situation is sadly no better. The page is full of inaccuracies. I have approached the individual (MSNanda) who has made these incorrect entries (see comments above). Can you please extend the semi-protection for another 3 months during which time I hope that the concept and historical significance of this page becomes clear to the individual concerned and therefore the integrity and accuracy of the page can be restored and maintained. Thanks. Daljit44 10:16, 31 December 2009 (UTC)

Wadhera[edit]

Dear Admistrator ,

You have missed Wadhera Surname - which is one of the most prominent Punjabi Khatri Surname .


Dear Adminstrator ,

Please kindly read the article about the khatri clan on Wikipedia itself . You would find Wadhera's under the Bahunjayee khatri community .

I have therefore made the changes .
