Introduction / History
The Meo though calling themselves Muslim have their roots in Hindu society

In Rajasthan, the Meo speak Mewati and read and write in Devanagari. They are not vegetarians and they eat wheat and rice as cereals. They believe in monogamy. Divorce is allowed. Property goes to the sons on the death of the father and the dead are buried. Agriculture and working with livestock are their main occupations. Traditional councils settle disputes and have power. They believe in education and modern medicines.

In Haryana the Meo speak Haryanvi. They sometimes get involved in Hindu festivals and some believe in Hindu deities.

In Delhi they have Hindu and Islam rituals with births and marriages. Many of them are laborers.

In Madhya Pradesh the Meo have cousin marriages. Some of the Meo live in Uttar Pradesh too.
