Abstract

The very theme “Dominance without Hegemony”, which is presented by Ranajit Guha on behalf of subaltern conception of History, obviously demonstrates the colonial and Neo-colonial situation of India as well as all other aspects of its local units. As, the Political situation of Tahsil Chiniot has also true relevance with the above mention theme. The dominant Bradaris of Chiniot are using the same tactic and exploiting the masses badly. These Bradaris are maintaining their dominance through collaboration not only with other powerful Bradaris but also using the same tactic for the subordination of common people of Chiniot. Politically, the powerful Bradaris (Syeds, Qazies, Lalies and Nissowanas) of Chiniot are perpetuating their dominance by using their very sound eco-social situation through different visible and non-visible means. And, this very situation is still prevailing in Chiniot.
