First of all ALL rajput are from HUN na tola which they come with muslim as koli waghari from sindh. once them moved to saurashtra they become rajput. Rajput karadia or any other rajput are no where written or mentioned in any historical book, vedas, and upnishad.
Rajput cast is self made. they have no connection with any LAV- or Kush. most of suryavanshi-chandravasi are all stories made by Barod and charan to please local ruler. THEY ARE NOT KSHATRIYA. THEY NEVER FOUGHT ANY INVADER. THEY ACTED LIKE CHEAP LOW CLASS PEOPLE WITH BRITISH. THEIR WOMEN HAS NO "LAZ" WHEN THEY WERE WITH WHITE PEOPLE. GAYATRIDEVI USED TO DANCE WITH BRITISH, ALL ALL RAJRANIS.
they have no root in sindh also, if they were rajput in sindh then why their kuldevi is not in sindh, why we dont have similar tribe living in sindh.mostly they become rajput after coming to western india.
if you look sindhi people of gujarat and sindhi people of karachi then they have similar god and language and culture. BUT IN RAJPUT CASE NOTHING MATCHES WITH SINDHIS.
