Ram Sarup Joon[3] writes that .... There is reference to Mirh Jats in the history of Arabs. These Jats were brought from Sindh and settled in Arabia during the Abbasid rule. They were fierce warriors.


Ram Swarup Joon states that Raja Vir Bhadra was the ruler of the area known as Shiv Ki Jata. He was of Puru Vansh and ancestor of seven Jat gotras. In the same dynasty, the Jat gotras Midh, Midhan, Mel and Ajmel claim their descent from Raja Hasti of Hastinapur. [4]


Ram Swarup Joon[5] writes abou Mirh-Midharh-Ajmirh-Sahotas: King Hasti who founded Hastinapur had three son's -Ajmirh, Devmirh and Purmirh. According to the Mejmaul ul Tawarikh, in the age of Duryodhana these people had settled down in the basin of the Indus River and were called Jatt.

The Mirh Jats are found in large numbers in the Western Punjab in Pakistan. In ancient times the Mirhs migrated, to Arabia, Syria and Baluchistan. References to the Mirh tribe are found through out Asia.

The Nawab of Karnal belonged to Midhan gotra.
