THE MEMON COMMUNITY
The Memons have their origins in the small towns and villages of Kutch, Gujarat and Kathiawad regions of pre-independent India.
After the partition of the subcontinent in 1947, a large number of Memons migrated to Pakistan. Many preferred to remain in India and a few gradually settled in other countries.
MEMONS AROUND THE WORLD
The Memons are now spread all over the world. A large segment is in Pakistan and India while others are in U.K., U.S.A., Canada & other countries of Asia, Europe, Africa & the Middle East. Wherever they settled, the Memons have organized themselves into various Memon Jamats, just like those found in their ancestral towns, to solve many social problems at the local level.
