The Battle of Uruzgan was fought in 1893 CE between Pashtuns and the Hazara ethnic group of Afghanistan.[1] Thereafter, on Hazara defeat, the Hazaras of the Uruzgani tribe were uprouted from Uruzgan by Abdur Rahman Khan and Pashtun tribes were resettled in Uruzgan. Some Uruzgani refugees migrated to Iran and British India (Quetta). In 1901, Amir Habibullāh Kalakāni granted amenesty to the migrated Hazaras and asked them to return. Some returning Uruzgani Hazaras were then resettled in Afghan Turkistan and Balkh, but were not allowed to return to Uruzgan.
