Ch Riaz Gujjar Lahore

Raiz Gujjar of Gowalmandi, Lahore. The second big name of Gujjars after Jaga Gujjar.  Riaz name is as this name is made for Gujjar and sounds Riaz Gujjar as made for each other. Riaz Gujjar was always called Pehalwan by others. He was respected by all communitties and their heads and no body never challenged his decisions. Evey one respect his decisions. Ibrahim alias Eba Gujjar is also famous in Lahore now a days but still there is no other name of his status after his death. A film was also made on his name "Riaz Gujjar".  Riaz Gujjar name is also very much liked by Gujjars as Hamayun Gujjar. Many Gujjar babies named Riaz Gujjar (as now a days Hamayun Gujjar) by their parents after the name of Hamayun Gujjar.
Actually, Gujjars still prefers bravery on any thing else and that is their style to appreciate bravery and as every one knows only Brave people appreciate bravery and Gujjar bravery is above of all. In Lahore there is no other name of his status after his death.
