Is there a way where we can only search parent issues and not sub-tasks in a project.
For example: If we have 1000 issues in a project out of which 100 are the parent issues and rest 900 are sub-tasks. SO is there a way to search only those 100 parent tasks in JIRA.
Yes, select by issue type. Use "issuetype = A, B, C" where those three issue types are parent types.
JQL in later versions makes this more easy:
This is not helping me as I have 'Bug' issue type as a parent issue and 'Bug' as a subtask as well.
So its difficult to differentialte parent issues and subtasks on the basis of issue types :)

No, you don't. Probably. Issue names *must* be unique in Jira. I suspect you've probably got something like "Bug" and "Bug." or " Bug" (note the whitespace). If you have really got two issue types with the same name, then you've hacked something and you really do need to rename them to be unique or you'll run into problems.
The JQL will work, but I'm not sure exactly which version that function arrived in.
Teams break work down in order to help simplify complex tasks. This is often done iteratively, with tasks being broken down into smaller tasks and so on until the work is accurately captured in well-...
