    Majority of the early converts were very rooted in their old Hindu ways & nominal Muslims. Infact, I've heard that until the 19th century , Muslims of Punjab used to do Lavan ceremony like Hindus & Sikhs during marriage. Then tablighis came along and Islamized them completely. The caste/religion census done by Brits also ossified these boundaries more. Post Zia ul Haq's Islamization, they are complete Arab slaves.

    Even Gakhars (ksysni) now proudly claim Arab lineage were Hindus once,they were converted by force according to ferishta.



    Ferishta s account of Gakkhars

    Ferishta records the conversion of the Gakhars to Islam by Muhammad of Ghor:

    “ This barbarous people continued to make incursions on the Muslims till in the latter end of this kings reign, their chieftain was converted to the true faith when a captive. After becoming a proselyte he procured his release from the king, who endeavored to persuade him to convert his followers.[1]
    Ferishta goes on to record about the conversion of the Gakhars and other local people at the hands of Muhammad of Ghor -

    “ most of the infidels who inhabited the mountains between Ghazni and the Indus were also converted, some by force and others by persuation [2]
    Hindu Marriage customs are recorded prevalent among Muslim Gakhars as late as the 18th century in the district gazetteer of Rawalpindi

    “ old religious customs, obviously of Hindu origin are still observed by the Gakhars, or were until within a very short period, such as customs at marriage of lawa-pherna and Khari par baithana, and the Kazi and the Brahman are both present on such occasions. Further it is curious that their headmen always call themselves Raja and not by any other distinctively Musalman title. The name Gakhar too , seems to partake more of a Hindu than of Persian or Arabic form"
