    Muslim from Hyderabad, notably my first 23andMe match that didn't ghost me when I first tested long ago and my first confirmed actual genetic link to Hyderabad to begin with.

    He doesn't really seem to have any meaningful foreign admixture, but he does seem to be a transplanted Awadhi. His paternal haplogroup is L-M27 and his maternal is H14, which is interesting.

While on mother side we are supposedly of Iraqi Arab ancestry as well 7 generations back but after these results I don't trust these family myths. Most of the surnames on my family tree are also of Islamic Honorific lineages like Siddiqui, Ansari, Farooqui, and so on. On 23andme DNA relatives the ones I have are of diverse origin mostly other Hyderabadis but also Tamil/Keralite Hindus and Christians and oddly like said in my other post Upper caste North Indians which was the biggest suprise. Most of my family migrated to Karachi post-partition.

    Doesn't seem high abnormally high SW Asian. The Med is kinda high. Seems like UP Muslim results.

    Came across something interesting - Dakhnis/Deccanis are considered a martial race of India. I would think because of their reputation as mercenaries for the Marathas and the Nizam's forces, which served in the World Wars.



    'Martial Races of India' Deccani Musalmen of the Indian Army, Central Provinces, Bombay, 1944 (c)

    The Deccan is a huge area of central and southern India. Maratha converts to Islam from this area were known as Deccani Muslims. The name Deccan is an anglicised form of the Prakrit word 'dakkhin', itself derived from the Sanskrit word 'dak?i?a', meaning 'South'.

    Ultimately from the word for right, which facing east, becomes south.

    Hyderabadi troops were prominent in both world wars. Captain Mateen Ansari, an officer related to the Asaf Jahi dynasty was captured in the fall of Hong Kong and tortured to death by the Japanese troops after he refused to denounce allegiance to the British.

    Nizam Forces' Commander Maj Gen El Edroos was of Arab ancestry, and moved to Pakistan after the merger of Hyderabad with India. His son still lives in Islamabad.
