Hazara people make up the third largest ethnic group in Afghanistan, where they mainly inhabit the Hazarajat region.[1] About 355,000 Iranian Hazaras live in neighboring Khorasan Province of Iran[2] and over 111,000 Pakistani Hazaras in Balochistan, Pakistan.[3] Many more are included among the Afghans in Iran and Afghans in Pakistan but are counted as Afghan nationals by the Government of Pakistan and the UNHCR, and are living in these countries on temporary bases as refugees. In addition, smaller number of Hazaras have immigrated to Australia, Europe, and North America in the last several decades. Below is the list of some notable Hazara people.
