The Aimaq Hazaras (Hazara-e-kala-e-nau, Hazara-e-qala-e-naw, Sunni Hazara, Aimaq-Hazara) are the Aimaq's subtribe of Hazara origin, however they are Sunni Muslims and other Hazaras are Shia Muslims.

They are more Persianized than Shia Hazaras. The Aimaq Hazara consists of 38 subtribes.[1] The Aimaq Hazara and Taimuri peoples are the most Mongoloid of the Aimaqs. The Aimaq people live in traditional Afghan black tents but the Aimaq Hazara and Taimuri are semi-nomadic who live in yurts covered with felt.[2]
