Hazarbuz is a Pashtun tribe sub section of Khawezai Momand GhoryaKhel primarily found in the Rodat District of Nangarhar Province , Kabul , Mazare sharif and Kunduz in Afghanistan. One of the respectible leader of the Hazarbuz tribe is Haji Zarab Gul present living in Peshawar.


Until the 1920s, the Hazarbuz lived principally as herders, concentrating on sheep (despite their name, which means "a thousand goats"). Because their migration routes coincided with a major arm of the Silk Road, they became more involved in transporting and then trading, typically bringing tea from Bukhara and India into Afghanistan.[1]
