    चमार कोई नीच जाति नहीॅं , बल्कि सनातन धर्म के रक्षक जिन्होने मुगलों का जुल्म सहा मगर धर्म न त्यागा
    आप जानकार हैरान हो सकते हैं कि भारत में जिस जाति चमार बोला जाता है वो असल में चंतरवंश की क्षत्रिय जाति है । यह खुलासा डाॅ. विजय सोनकर की पुस्तक हिन्दु चर्ममारी जाति एक स्वर्णिम गौरवशाली राजवंशीय इतिहास में हुआ इस किताब में डाॅ. सोनकर ने लिखा है कि विदेषी विद्वान कर्नल टाॅड द्वारा पुस्तक राजस्थान का इतिहास में चंवरवंश के बारे में बहुत विस्तार में लिखा गया है
    डा सोनकर बताते हैं कि इतना ही नहीं बल्कि महाभारत के अनुशासन पर्व में भी इस वंश का उल्लेख है हिन्दु वर्ण व्यवस्था को क्रूर और भेद भाव बनाने वाले हिन्दु नही बल्कि विदेशी आक्रमणकारी थे ।
