Cheema is not only a last name. Cheema is also a clan found in Jats}"pernounced Jutts" of Pakistan and India who are descendants of Indo-Aryan tribes. People belonging to Cheema clan, are found in large numbers as Muslim in West Punjab (Pakistan). Most of them are Muslim or Sikh in their religious affiliations. There are no Hindu Cheemas. Jatts are a large and prominent group of tribes in Punjab. Cheemas are one of the two major Sub-Clans of the 72 Sub-Clans in Jats. They speak Punjabi and usually own extensive lands, and are influential land lords in their respective areas. The visibile strength of the family can be referred to the first 1947 constitution of Pakistan, where the Cheema tribe was listed in the second line as one of the forty largest families coming into Pakistan.
