You may be aware of the well known community of Meos/medes for their numerous human qualities such as honesty, justice, simplicity, hard working, straight forwardness, helping, God fearing, valour and so many other virtues and equally fortunate because of the region they have been living in i.e. the erstwhile state, the Mewat, one of the  most vital and important area in the vicinity of ever remained Capital of Bharat/Hindustan/India since ancient times and further spread all along the Aravalli Hill ranges going far away in the Rajputana. It cannot be said precisely what constitute the Mewat, but generally include Alwar, Bharatpur, and Dholpur districts of Rajasthan, Mathura in Uttar  Pradesh and Gurgaon and Faridabad districts of Haryana.

The ancient kingdom of Matsya, founded in the 5th century BCE was here only as a country which Meos/Medes used to rule. Apart from it Medes have spread all over north India and have their clusters of villages where they are more prosperous than their brethren in the land of their origin. Despite of all that it is unfortunate that history has not given them sufficient space they deserve and contribution they have made to strengthen the nation even during period of worst crisis quite comparable to the holocaust. They have been almost ignored by various past governments specially that of rulers coming from outside and still a lot more is required to be done to improve their day-to-day life so that they should not feel deprived from their own present democratic governments and the nation as a whole is benefited by their remaining in the main stream and as such serving the country with their above strength.

Before, proceeding further it is pertinent to make it explicitly clear that the meos are people of ancient tribe who settled dawn in the present day mewat as explained above after migrating from north west and north part of today’s Iran and Azerbaijan. They have been named Medes, Mids, Madais, etc. in different period, regions/countries/religions/scriptures and here in Indian sub-continent there are now a days are popularly known as the Meos.
After reading the above and your interest developed you will love to know more about the great community - The Meos/Medes in brief as follows:

  • Ta-Ha (Ta-Ha) (20) - Roukh 2And thou (Moses) didst tarry years among the folk of Midian(40).
  • According to the Book of Jubilees (10:35-36), Madai had married a daughter of Shem, and preferred to live among Shem's descendants, rather than dwell in Japheth's allotted inheritance beyond the Black Sea; so he begged his brothers-in-law, Elam, Asshur and Arphaxad, until he finally received from them the land that was named after him, Media.
  • The Medes were descended from Madai, the grandson of Noah.
  • They could build one of the largest empire known as median empire which lasted for more than 150 years.
  • In 553 BC, Cyrus the Great, King of Persia, rebelled against his grandfather, the Medes King, Astyages son of Cyaxares and with the help of some medes nobles he established the medo-persian Empire.
  • The Kurds(Medes) still maintain traditions of descent from Madai.
  • The Meos/Medes are very much Aryan i.e. Arian whose origin is a place called Ariyahn in Palestine according to one school of thought. They last migrated to the present Mewat from Central Asia i.e. Iran/Azerbaijan of today where they established their own kingdom.
  • The ancient kingdom of Matsya, founded in the 5th century BCE was here only as a country which no other than Meos/Medes used to rule.
  • There is a mention of medes by Arab traders visiting the coastal part of Sindh during the period of our Prophet Mohammed (pbuh).
  • They are the same Medes/Mids who accepted Islam at first under the influence of noble treatment of Mohammed bin Qassim who fought the oppressive campaign of a Brahmin Raja Dhahar, for the Janta being either fire worshiper or Buddhists. Raja Dhahar was the ruler of Sindh at that time. Later on they joined along with Jats the army of Muslim and fought for their army upto Iran.
  • It is to realize and think how the Meos fought with bravery against Jung, Julm and Jamaa (war, atrocities and excessive land revenue) at different times inflicted by Muslim rulers, Britishers and Rajput/Jat rulers respectively.
  • For the cause of justice they even fought against Muslim rulers from time to time along with Hindus and alone as well. Liberating Shivaji from the Mughal clutches was one such example of the act of justice done by none other than Meos. The Army of Rana Sangram in the second battle of Panipat was under command of Hasan Khan Mewati when it fought against Mughals, the invaders, in Panipat to oppose the oppressive taxation imposed on farmers.
  • Mewat used to have been inhabited by Meos, the land owners and the non-meos, the landless as their facilitators/associates such as butchers (Qureshies/Sheikh), barbers, telis, dhobis, mirasis, badhais, lohars, faqirs/miyans, julayas, sakkas etc. These non-meos used to be equally playing active parts in day-to-day life of Mewat. So the Mewat used to be a perfectly integrated and well knit society and self sufficient in all respects during the days when it was mainly rural/agriculture base economy and the Medes used to take care of their brothers, non-Medes as their fellow beings with due respect without any discrimination and compensating them sufficiently for their services to Medes by sharing with them all sort of the agriculture products and other possession they had. As such the whole lot is called Mewatis even now. It is for every body to see and realize that every village of the Mewat is indicative of a constituent of a civil society as a self governed with justice and mutual respect.
  • They are a community having high self-esteem and dignity and could not be dominated by any ruler coming to India/Delhi. They used to have their own system of administration and economic activities better can be called as non-monarchical system of Govt. They had been anti-establishment for most of the period and did not allow any body to rule over them. This is another vital factor to prove beyond doubt that Mewatis are Marshal Race.
  • Gias-u-Din Balban and Mughal kings faced perennial defeats by the Meo warrior around Delhi and in the interiors of Rajasthan.
  • Though the Mewat had been disintegrated and now falls under Haryana, Rajasthan and UP, it is still called Mewat signifying as to how the Meos could earn a permanent name of the state they once upon a time used to be the ruler before Mughals. Their last Ruler was Hasan Khan Meo.
  • The Meos had been mischievously called as rebels by barbaric aggressors so called Muslim rulers and dacoits and looters by brutal and treacherous the British. Finally, to the Islamicizing, pietiest movement, Tablighi Jama'at, which has flourished in Mewat since partition, the Mewatis were the jahiliyya of pre-Islamic Arabia. This is what is called certain group/s suffering from some sort of complex and as such trying to suppress others on the basis of ethnic, cultural or religious so called superiority. It is all the ironic and painful that the proponents of Tablighi movement, which owes its foundation and current success to the Mewatis, are castigating the same community in such a shameful manner. All these acquisitions are ill founded, false, criminal assault and contrary to the facts.  It is for the historians to dig into the matter and bring reality to the surface if they claim to be true to their profession.
  • It is for every sensible person to see and appreciate that the Meos have been coexisting with their equally brave communities as such Jats, Gurjars, Meenas, and Ahirs. The outsiders/occupiers may kindly spare them as such and do not create hatred and bloodshed between these great communities. Their survival in the vicinity of Delhi i.e. the seat of power and authority indicates a lot as to how they would have stood united to face the Jung, julm and tyranny of the various rulers of Delhi and still could live at the very area which they cherish and love more than any other place.
  • It is the same Mewat which Mahatma Gandhi had eulogized in 1933, saying,” I can make India win its freedom within in 24 hours provided the whole country; grit could emulate Mewat’s Meo community in its valour and patriotic fervor”.
  • If some body happens to visit Mewat villages - small or big, he will not find any structure-ruined or intact where any thing like idle/statue or similar thing which might has remotest chance of being worshiped or even adored by human being. So it can be easily concluded that Meos never remained idle worshipers. They might be either not worshiping any thing or they might be believers on One Super Power having acceptance and acknowledged by heart, so it becomes quite natural for the Meos to voluntarily adopt Islam at the first instance. This happened when Hajjaj (661-714), a viceroy of the Umayyad Empire, sent third expedition to Sind under the leadership of his son-in-law Muhammad ibn Qasim who finally prevailed, mainly due to superior military equipment, including a siege machine requiring 500 men and the powerful Mongolian bow, plus superb leadership and unprecedented troop discipline and his sustained treatment par excellence and justice to the then Medes/Jats. Meds were the Meos of today. However, proper learning and understanding of Islam remained a continuous process even up to the date.
  • The Medes were the people of Indo-Iranian (Aryan) origin who inhabited the western and north-western portion of present-day Iran. By the 6th century BC (prior to the Persian invasion) the Medes were able to establish an empire that stretched from Aran (the modern-day Republic of Azerbaijan) to Central Asia and Afghanistan. Today's population of the western part of the Iranian Plateau (including many Persian-speakers, Kurds and Azeris) consider themselves to be descended from the ancient Medes.
  • By the 6th century BC, after having defeated the Neo-Assyrian Empire, the Medes were able to establish their own empire, which stretched from the southern shore of the Black Sea and Aran province (the modern-day Republic of Azerbaijan) to north and Central Asia, Afghanistan, and Pakistan, and which included many tributary states, including the Persians, who eventually supplanted and absorbed the Median empire later on in the Achaemenid Persian Empire.
  • The Medes are credited with the foundation of the first Iranian empire, the largest of its day until Cyrus the Great established a unified Iranian empire of the Medes and Persians, often referred to as the Achaemenid Persian Empire, by defeating his grandfather and overlord, Astyages, king of Media.

Ancient History of Medes/Moes:

The Six Median Tribes: Herodotus lists the names of six Mede tribes or castes:

  • The Busae group is thought to derive from the Persian term buza meaning indigenous (i.e. not Iranian). Whether this was based on an originally Iranian term, or their own name, is unknown.
  • The second group is called the Paraetaceni, or Parae-tak-(eni) in Persian, and denotes nomadic inhabitants of the mountains of Paraetacene. This name recalls the Scythian Para-la-ti, the people of Kolaxis, believed to represent the common people in general, but whom Herodotus calls the "Royal Scythians".
  • The third group is called Stru­khat.
  • The fourth group is the Arizanti, whose name is derived from the words Arya (noble), and Zantu (tribe, clan).
  • The fifth group were the Budii, found also among the Black Sea Scythians as Budi-ni. Buddha was of the tribe Budha, the Saka (eastern Scythian) form of the name.
  • The sixth tribe were the Magi...They were a hereditary caste of priests of the Zurvanism religion that evolved out of Zoroastrianism. The name Magi implies a link with the Sumerians, who called their language Emegir, over time becoming simplified to Magi. Hungarian tradition also traces pre-European Magyar (Hungarian) ancestry back to the Magi. In time, the Sumerian-influenced religion of the Magi was suppressed in favour of a more purely Iranian form of Zoroastrianism, itself evolved from its somewhat dualist beginnings into the monotheistic faith that it is today (also known as Parsi-ism).
