Change non-elite tillers to an agriculture based community As, Non-elite tillers is nothing but ostracization of a significantly successful community, we do not appreciate the usage of these words as a community to describe us in a Wikipedia article. Just because Susan Bayly used 'non elite tillers' or 'peasant' in her books, doesn't mean that these are the only plausible words to be used here. It doesn't make any sense to have redundant terminology from a white British lady to be used. An 'agricultue based community' is a neutral term which neither glorifies or ostracize the entire community. 49.207.205.14 (talk) 08:59, 29 September 2021 (UTC)

 Not done for now: please establish a consensus for this alteration before using the {{edit extended-protected}} template. The sourcing in the article uses this phrasing extensively, and we follow sources. Provide sourcing that uses the terminology you'd like to use.

ans=no

change it to simply 'tribe' or 'community' I do not understand the resistance in accepting a basic fact, that the referenced material is talking about Jat people from an old(rather medieval perspective). Limiting a community/tribes identity in this day and age to words like "peasants", "tillers" and "herders" is nothing but derogatory. There are several examples of Wikipedia articles about other communities, which do not start off with an outdated reference from an old book. There doesn't need to be a book reference for the first line of article altogether infact. There is nothing factually wrong with calling a community just a community. It is beyond me that Wikipedia editors are failing to understand the impact of something like this.

So, if we go by references only then why are the references to Indian authors are rejected? Does all the credibility of "defining" Indian communities lies with white people? This editor reeks of hypocrisy and is not acting impartially towards the subject matter.


Here is a reference for you:

Could you please change "Today, Muslim Jats are found in Pakistan and India" to "Today Muslim Jats are mainly found in Pakistan". User104235 (talk) 10:17, 29 September 2021 (UTC)

This will make more sense because it is not denying that there aren't any Muslim Jats in India because it says "mainly". Muslim jats number millions in Pakistan compared to India where they number well below a million.

Thank you
