Rind (Balochi: رِند) is a Baloch tribe. According to Baloch folklore the tribe was founded by Rind Khan, one of Mir Jalal Khan's four sons.[1]


According to Ali Sher Kanei of Tatta in his history, written in 1774 A.D. traces the origin of the Rind tribe from Jalāl Hān, a descendant of Muhammad bin Hārūn, surnamed Makurāni, the Governor of Makurān and of the Indian frontiers under Al-Hajjaj ibn Yusuf ( 705 A.D.) on the accession of Caliph Al-Walid I. The same author states that Muhammad son of Hărūn was a grandson of Muhammad bin Aban bin Abd - ur - Rahim bin Hamzah ibn Abdul-Muttalib , the paternal uncle of the Prophet of Islam.[2]

At the turn of the 15th century the Rind led by Mir Chakar Rind are believed to have engaged in a 30-year war against the Lashari, in which both tribes suffered greatly. These events are the subject of many Balochi heroic ballads.[3]
