Mir girl (Gujarat).

 

Mir is a tribe/caste which has decended from the Butt tribe in Kashmir Valley of Baramulla. It is also in Sindh Gilgit and Punjab provinces of Pakistan and India. Mir are actually of Butt lineage along with Khwaja. Mir are also known as Butt today because they are actually descended directly from the Butt bloodlines. Mir became a subcaste somewhere around 1850 and is actually a name of a person and NOT a tribe.
