The Saraiki people (Saraiki: سرائیکی قوم), also known as Multani people, are ethnically and culturally a sub group of the Punjabi people with some distinct cultural adaptions (due to proximity to Sindh) and linguistically speak the Saraiki dialect of Punjabi.
The Saraiki speaking people follow many religions, among them mostly Islam but also some are Hindu. After the independence of Pakistan in 1947, the minority Hindus and Sikhs migrated to India while the Muslims refugees from India settled down in the Seraiki region of Pakistan. A significant number of Saraiki speaking people also reside in India, with most concentrated in Punjab, Haryana, Delhi, Maharashtra and Gujarat.
