Solution

The correct option is D Gujjar Bakarwals
After 1947, the new political boundaries between India and Pakistan prevented the movement of camel and sheep herders like the Raikas of Rajasthan into the Sindh region, where they usually grazed their herds on the banks of the Indus. The pastoral communities like the Gujjar Bakarwals, Sherpas, and the Kinnauris, living near the border may also have faced difficulties due to mass migration of people between India and Pakistan.
