Mangal Sen Jindal writes: Uzbekistan was settled by Jats who were residing there in strongholds in large number and were a source of permanent trouble to Timur-lung is proved by the following quotation from that book.
- 'Brothers' I said. Welcome to A.K. Sarai. I have been expecting the envoys of my Father, the Khakhan, my beloved Amir and Master. I am Timur, Chief of the Barlas, Amir of Shehr-Sehz. Enter into my palace garden. Completely bewildered by my hospitality, the Jat Commander rode dumbly beside me to the door of the palace.' Conquests of Tamurlane, page 91.
H.A. Rose  writes:
In Gujrat the Muhammadan Jat tribes claim very diverse origins. Thus Mughal origin is claimed by the Bhaddar, Malana, Marar and Narwai, who claim to be Barlas ; and by the Bahlam, Chaughatta, Phiphra, Mander and Babal, who claim to be Chaughatta.
