Biography

Family history

PML-N ex MNA Ghulam bb
Bharwanas are a sub-caste of Sial Rajputs who came to this part of the subcontinent in the 14th century from Rajasthan, then Rajputana. They embraced Islam at the hands of sufi poet Baba Farid Ganj Shakar. Bharwanas are settled along river Chenab in villages like Satiana, Mukhiana, Khawa, Sultanpur, Chund Bharwana Qaim Bharwana, Kot Mirza and Chianwala in the Jhang and Chiniot tehsils. They have been a political force in the district for a long time. One of their elders, Mehr Ghulam Haider returned as MNA on several occasions. Mehr Akhtar Abbas and Mehr Zafarullah became chairman of Jhang District Council in 1987 and 1991. The former went on to become provincial minister for industries. Mehr Aslam was an adviser to the Punjab chief minister in 1990.Bharwanas are traditionally very strict about their women. They are kept under strict purdah within the four walls of their havelis. They have to wear old-fashioned shuttlecock burqa when they are allowed to go out on very rare occasions. They are seldom sent to school and literacy rate among Bharwana women is negligible. It is in the recent past when some of their women graduated, which include the two candidates, Ghulam Bibi and Saima Akhtar. [1] history

At the charged gathering at Faisalabad’s Dhobi Ghat, the lawmakers said they have submitted their resignations to politico-religious leader Pir Hameeduddin Sialvi and gave him power to decide their political future.
