Aliasing katar -> jamadhar

Reason: Japanese Wikipedia article on ジャマダハル (jamadhar) states that "the western naming convention of Indian push daggers as katar, kutar or katara is actually a misapplication of the word, as katar properly refered to a type of double-edged short sword."

"This misinterpretation arose from the illustrations of the katar and jamadhar being reversed in 'Ain-i-Akbari' a 16th century historical account authored by Abu'l-Fazl, who served Emperor Akbar of the Mughal Empire."

And pixiv has ジャマダハル tag and its wiki.
