historic record

in 1164 A.D. (559 A.H.), almost 500 years after the Baloch migration from Aleppo. Shams-ud-Din claimed descent from the Saffarids of Persia (Saffarid dynasty). His successor, Badr-ud-Din (of whom there is no known historic record), demanded a bride from each of the 44 bolaks or clans of the Baloch. The Baloch, however, had never paid tribute in this form to any ruler; they instead sent Badr-ud-Din 44 boys dressed in girls' clothes and fled before the deception could be discovered. Badr-ud-Din sent the boys back but pursued the Baloch, who had fled south-eastwards into Kech-Makran, where they defeated him. During this period Mir Jalal Khan, son of Mir Jiand Khan, was the ruler of the Baloch. He left four sons, Rind, Lashar, Hooth, and Korai, and a daughter Jato, who married his nephew Murad. These five are the eponymous founders of the five great divisions of the tribe, the Rinds (Rind (Baloch tribe)), Lasharis, Hooths, Korais, and Jatois (Jatoi (Baloch tribe)).

Balochistan province is bordered by Afghanistan to the north and north-west, Iran to the south-west, the Arabian Sea to the south, Punjab (Punjab, Pakistan) and Sindh to the east, and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Federally Administered Tribal Areas to the north-east. Quetta is the capital and largest city of Balochistan.

The main ethnic groups in the province are Baloch (Baloch people), Pashtuns (Pashtun people) and Brahuis (Brahui people), and there are relatively smaller communities of Iranian Baloch (Baloch people), Hazara (Hazara people)s, Sindhis and other settlers, including Punjabis, Uzbeks, and Turkmens. The name Balochistan means "''the land of the Baloch''" in many regional languages.
