Nuristan Cluster – Profile
  • The peoples in the Nuristan cluster are native to the Nuristan region of eastern Afghanistan. The Nuristanis are a people whose ancestors practised what was apparently an ancient form of Hinduism until they were conquered and converted to Islam in the late 19th century. Until their conversion to Islam their land was known by local Muslim groups as Kafiristan, land of the infidels. After conversion their land became known as Nuristan, the "land of light". Non-Muslim religious practices endure today to some degree, as folk customs.
  • Nuristanis were the first citizens of Afghanistan to revolt against the communist government in 1978. Thereafter, Nuristan remained a scene of some of the bloodiest guerrilla fighting with the Soviet forces from 1979 through 1989.
  • Most of the languages spoken by the Nuristani tribes are unwritten, and literacy rates are low even for the written languages. Oral communication is essential. The Gospel must come to these people in oral form.
