There is no much information about the origin of Baluch
Tribes, because of being almost illiterate, migratory,
exposure to wars, banditry, enslavement,...
The earliest references to Baluch is contained in Persian
Literature. Baloc (Baluch) is old Persian word, means
"Crest". Their main location seems to have been
near Persian shores of Caspian Sea.
According to Baluch legends, they originated in Arabian
areas, such as Syria; but more probably they are mixture
of several races of Northern origins, desert land within
the confines of ancient Persia.
Apparently, they were driven from Caspian area, by the
earliest invasions from Central Asia to Kerman area; and
because of the later factors, such as famine conditions,
government policies and... they spread throughout
Baluchistan and Northward into Western into Western
Pakistan Afghanistan and Eastern Persia.
Today, Baluch, who are mostly Muslims (Sunni), are spread
in Turkmenistan, Iran, Afghanistan and Pakistan.
