They live in Uttar Pradesh 2. The term Julaha is derived from the Persian word julah, meaning ball of thread. The word is commonly associated with the Hindi jala or jali, meaning interlaced thread.
This grants them and other SCs many benefits like fixed, reserved quotas in government jobs, in admissions to various government-sponsored professional colleges and welfare schemes for economic and social improvement and reserved seats in parliament.
The Julaha speak the local languages of the states they live in. In Himachal Pradesh, where they live mainly in rural areas, they speak Kangri and Chambali. All these languages use the common Devanagari script. In Chandigarh they speak Punjabi and write in the Gurumukhi script. The Julaha belong to the Shudra caste, the fourth and lowest class of the Hindu caste system. The higher castes consider the Julaha as a lower class especially in rural area and do not accept food and water from them.
The Julaha, in turn, do not exchange food with communities considered lower than them like the Churha sweeperChamar tannerDhanuk laborer and Raigar tanner. The Julaha used to be handloom weavers but industrial change has introduced cheaper, machine-made textiles to the market which has caused them to look for work in other fields. Some still continue weaving, making coarser cloth for bedspreads or Kharad a large, thick cloth on grain at harvesting time to protect it from getting wet in the rain and dhurries floor rugs.
Previously they wove intricate designs and patterns in beautiful colors. Cooperatives have been formed to regulate prices and help the Julaha sell cloth at local markets. Some Julaha have taken up other professions and work as skilled and unskilled laborers, run small scale industries, shops or are businessmen.
In the hilly state of Himachal Pradesh, they work for daily wages in building roads and forestry. They sometimes also work as farm laborers or plough land on a contract basis. Some Julaha rent out threshing machines during the harvesting season.
Many Julaha do not own land, like those of Chandigarh. Breeding and caring for animals, tailoring, masonry, dyeing cloth and calico printing is some other types of work they do. Child labour exists among the Julaha with children learning and working on the looms from a young age. The poor people send their children to work at tea stalls, small roadside restaurants, automobile workshops or factories to earn their living.
The literacy rate is very low and children do not complete their education. They practice family planning in order to have fewer children. They use both local remedies as well as visit clinics. They have benefitted from the facilities provided for them by the Public Distribution System and have electricity, water supplies and are given equipment at subsidised rates. In Himachal Pradesh, they have been allotted land for cultivation. The Julaha are endogamous at the community level, i. They are exogamous at the gotra clan level, and sometimes at the village level too.
Adult marriages are gradually replacing child marriages and are arranged by family members. Monogamy is preferred and sindur vermilionglass bangles, bindi coloured dot on foreheadand rings for the nose and toes are the marriage symbols for women.
Divorce is socially unacceptable and rare but can be granted on ground of adultery, cruelty, insanity, impotency or incompatibility.The Julaha are a community of Pakistan and Indiawhich adopted the profession of weaving. The term Julaha may derive from the Persian julah ball of thread. Both Hindu and Muslim Julaha groups exist; a number of the Muslim Julaha later changed their group name to terms such as Ansari  the prophet Mohammed's term for the Muslims of Medina or Nurbaf weaver of lightPersian being a prestigious language amongst area Muslims.

Arabic Usage The name itself is not used as a surname among Arabs, patronymics is used instead. The word is added as a title to the end of the name, if one has an ancestor who was an Ansar.
This kind of use of a name is called "Nesbat" in Arabic, meaning "relation". In modern times, however, the surname Al-Ansari is widely used in many Persian Gulf and Arab nations. Iranian Usage In contrast, Iranians use surnames instead of Patronymics.
In Iran, it has become a a Surname, since Iranian use surnames. This has also happened with the "Tabatabai", also originally a Nesbat. Pakistani and Indian Usage The Ansari surname goes as far as being used in Pakistan, northern India and Bangladesh, to show a lineage or ancestral link to the Ansar of Medina.
Through the various waves of migration from the Arabian Peninsula, Iran, Central Asia, and Afghanistan, descendants of the Ansar tribes arrived in the Indian Subcontinent. These families, mainly came either as scholars, government administrators and functionaries, soldiers or officers. It seems that over a period of time, others, and many of the new Muslim converts, in India also identified themselves as Ansari, to show reverence to their Islamic faith.
Many of these in northern India and Pakistan were involved in fabric manufacturing i. Often, but not necessarily, Ansari is used to identify a caste, as well. In the Indian Hindu Caste System and in the Urdu: baradari system traditionally, different cast were involved or associated with different trades or professions. See also, Islam in India. OBC among muslims majority belong to Ansari community. Their great ancestor, Shamul, was a physician and councillor in the service of King Toba, who was a king in Yemen.
Toba, during the time of his reign, marched into Arabia and arrived in Yasrab, which was then the name of the town of Medina. He had four hundred physicians and councillors with him, of whom Shamul was the chief and they all told the king that they intended to settle down there as the last of the prophets would immigrate to that place and live there and they wished to be reckoned amongst his followers.
Toba wrote a letter by his own hand, declaring that he embraced Islam in anticipation, and delivered it to Shamul, with instructions that the letter was to be treated as a legacy to be delivered in succession until it was handed over to the prophet by some one of his descendants. After Shamul, our ancestors were divided into two sub-divisions, called — 1. Al Khazraj and 2. Al Os" Hazrat Ayub was descended from Khazraj. Some of those early Ansaris settled in Paat, district Dadu. The ansari of indian origin their traditional work is to weave the cloths these majority of Ansaris living in Varanasi, Bhadohi, Jaunpur, Azamgarh belong to weaver community.

In North India, the community are known as Ansari or sheikhwhile in Maharashtra the community are known as Momin or Saudagar. The community are found throughout India, but Varanasi Districtin Uttar Pradeshis always regarded by most Momin as the centre of their community.
In that city, the Ansari are said to make up a third of the city's population.
Important Ansari neighbourhoods in the city include Madanpura, Adampura and Jaitpura. The Ansaris of North India are mainly a landlord community, but some are small- and medium-scale farmers. They have always been connected with the textile work. Many members of the community have entered private or government service. Their relationship with the Sadh community is of some importance, as they supply the Momins with the cotton cloth used for printing.
The Ansaris do not have any traditional social councils, but have an India-wide community organization, the All India Momin Conference. They are an endogamous community, only rarely marrying out of their group. There is no system of clansand cross and parallel cousin marriages are common.
The Ansaris are Muslims of the Sunni sect. Historically, the community produced the sage, scholars and philosopher. The Ansari are an Urdu -speaking community, although the Ansari clan of Gujarat have Gujarati as their mother tongue. The Ansari community is found throughout Bihar and Jharkhand. In Bihar, they are found in all the districts.
They are active in politics. Their socio-economic condition has constantly improved. They play active roles in all walks of life in Bihar. They speak the Sadri dialectwhich is distinctive to the community, although most have knowledge of Urdu. The community is endogamous, and marry within a close kin group. Like other Ansaris, they were historically into the textile work, although most of them are medium- and small-scale farmers.
The Momin Conference was founded in Bihar, and the Bihar Ansaris have played a key role in the organization. Mostly in Vaishali and muzaffarpur district. In Gujaratthere are two distinct communities commonly known as Momin, the native Gujarati-speaking Garana Ansari, and the immigrant Ansari community, originally from North India.
They speak Gujarati with substantial Urdu loanwords. The traditional occupation of the Ansari is still textile work. Many of them are engaged in zari work, which involves sari embroidery. This is especially the case in the towns of Jamnagar and Dhoraji, which each have traditional quarters inhabited by the Ansaris.
The Shaikh Ansari are an Urdu-speaking community, and are said to have immigrated from DelhiRajasthan and Uttar Pradesh some three hundred years ago. In Barodathey were invited by the ruling dynasty to help in the construction of public buildings from Rajasthan. The Shaikh Ansari are divided into four endogamous groups, the Bijnor Ansari, originating from the city of Bijnor in Uttar Pradesh; the Ganga Parvala, originating from the village of Gomtipur and its surroundings in Uttar Pradesh; the Delhiwala, originally from Delhi; and the Pratapgarh Ansari originating from the city of Pratapgarh and surrounding areas in eastern Uttar Pradesh.
Textile working was the traditional occupation of the Ansari, and at present those in Ahmadabad still engage in this activity. Many Ahmadabad Ansari are now power loom owners.

But many Shaikh Ansari have also diversified, and now own hotels and bakeries. They are among the more successful Muslim communities in the state, having made the transition from their traditional occupation to becoming successful businessmen. The level of literacy is steadily increasing, and many Ansari are now graduates. Historically, each of the four sub-divisions would have had their own informal clan association, headed by a chaudhary.It is a well-known fact that India has a rich handloom industry.
These colourful, handwoven fabrics are not only an integral part of our heritage but have contributed extensively to the lives of the people engaged in their creation. Historically, these communities have dedicated themselves to weaving, and their livelihoods are intertwined in the very patterns they create. This community derives its name from the Persian julahmeaning a ball of thread. Many Julahas associate the words jaal net and jils decorated with the name of their community.
These artisans are known to incorporate bold colours into their weaves. Most of them are Hindus, although some Muslim Julaha communities, such as Ansaris or Nurbafs, also exist.
Punjab and Chandigarh are populated by Julahas who follow Sikhism called Ramdasisand many are animists who worship their ancestors. Regardless of their different religious associations, most Julahas are followers of Kabir and a few have even embraced Buddhism. Although the Ansaris are primarily an Urdu-speaking community, these craftsmen also speak the local dialects or a mixture of the two—for instance, the Ansaris in Rajasthan speak Madri, a curious mix of Urdu and Hindi.
Primarily an urban community today, most Ansaris are politically active in Bihar and enjoy great social and financial mobility. On the other hand, many still work as unskilled labour, manufacturing bidis for a living. In Rajasthan, Gujarat and Maharashtra, they are engaged in weaving gold and silver zari.
They also excel in weaving the famous Banarasi brocade and have been given Geographical Indicator GI rights to safeguard their interests. Primarily found in Rajasthan and Gujarat, the Salvis are recognised as the creators of the famous Patan Patola weave. This complex textile combines the processes of tie-and-dye with weaving to produce the Ikat textile.
The community is particularly well known for making an indigenous variant of the complicated double Ikat, in which the warp and weft are tied and then resist-dyed before being put on the loom. This endeavour has not only made it easier for the original product made with 8-ply silk in Patan to be distinguished from its copies, but has also encouraged the community to strive to retain its handloom traditions.

A socially and economically backward community, they are known to be Kabirpanthis and even Shakta worshippers. Their sole means of sustenance is the Pata, a thick cloth made of handspun cotton. However, over the decades they have also developed a unique weave that combines cotton and silk.
They use only natural dyes, usually made from the roots of the aal tree Indian mulberry in shades that range from deep reds to dark browns.

Primarily based in the southern regions of Tamil Nadu, Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh, the Devanga community is known for its super-fine cotton textiles. Members of this caste claim to have descended from the sage, Devala. In Hindu mythology, Devala Maharishi was supposedly the first to weave cotton cloth and present it to Lord Shiva.
