J1 Z1853 - Mysterious Bloodline of India

by Paul

I belong to the Jatt ethnic group of Punjab, India. I am Y DNA Haplogroup J1 Z1853 the mutation that occurred around Khabur River. To this date we use Khabra as our surname and sometimes also name our town Khabra, Khyber Pass may have been named so after our surname as we may have been the dominate clan in that area in ancient times.

It is still a mystery how this surname and bloodline ended up in India as both undoubtedly belong to the present day border area of Syria, Iraq and Eastern Anatolia.

Most likely first my ancestors may have ended up in the Zagros Mountains and became a part of the Gutians, and later they moved to north west of China for whatever reason where the Gutians were known to Chinese as YueZie, also known as Scythian Massageate and Tocharians and eventually ended up in India as Kushans.
