Remarkable struggle of an ancient community

This community is successful to write a respectable name in the national and regional history. Our people have remained one of the most famous tribes to participate in martial arts and other sports competitions.

Hazaras are one of the ancient ethnic groups living in Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Iran, but the great part of their population lives in the Central Afghanistan, known as Hazarajat or Hazaristan. Due to Turko-Mongolic looking features of Hazaras, many historians believe that the Hazaras are descendants of the Changez khan and his forces. There is much more to know about the ancient historical traces and tribal system of the Hazaras.

The tribal system of the Hazaras is ancient like other ancient races and civilizations. Anciently, Hazaras were known as different names by their different neighbors. In ancient Persian, Hazaras were known as the Khawari, for Greeks its Dai-Dahai and for the Chinese, its Yueh-Chi. After the Scythians, the rise of the Empire of Kushan is an important landmark in the History of Central Asia and the Hazaras.

As Hazaras anciently and still populated on junctions of the ancient Silk route between South Asia, Central Asia, and the Middle East, their importance in geography, demographics, trade, and politics is most significant. Anciently, the Hazaras used to control the ancient trade route started from Delhi on the East, Anatolia on the Northwest, Babylonia, Damascus, and Asuri in the west, Wakhan and Henan in Northeast, Makran, and Mehran Sindh on southeast and ancient Seestan in Southwest and Central Asia and Caucasus and Asia-minor region.

The Bamiyan city and Balkh is one of the most strategic and important junctions between South Asia, Central Asia, and the Middle East, populated by the Hazara ancestors. After downfall of the empire system, and the arrival of the Portuguese and British people, the main population of Hazaras was limited between the Mashhad to Balkh and Bagram in the north. From Kabul to Kandahar in the East. From Kandahar to Helmand and Herat in the South and from Herat till Mashhad in the West.
