Baloch Cluster – Profile
  • The Baloch cluster of peoples includes the native Baloch tribes who originate in Balochistan. This is a region of southwestern Pakistan, southeastern Iran, and a small section of southwestern Afghanistan. These tribes speak one or more of the three Baloch languages, depending on where they live in the region.
  • The Baloch tribes are overwhelmingly Sunni Muslim. Balochs have long resisted Islamic extremism, but Talibanism is a threat to this region and its cultural values.
  • Baluchi customs and traditions are conducted according to tribal laws. These strong traditions and cultural values are important to Baluch people and have enabled them to keep their distinctive ancient cultural identity and way of life with little change to this day.
  • Literacy rates given for all three Baloch languages are extremely low, from 1-5%. The New Testament is available in the three Baloch languages, but if people can't read the value of scripture is greatly reduced. However, the Gospel is potentially available in oral form via recordings and videos.
  • Only a relative few Baloch have become followers of Christ. Exact numbers are not available, but whatever the true numbers may be they are much too low to make a strong influence on the society.
