The Moghols (Mogul, Mongul) are descendants of the Mongol Empire's soldiers in Afghanistan. They live in the Kundur and Karez-i-Mulla villages of Herat province and speak the Mogholi language.[1] The Moghols sometimes call themselves "Shahjahan", because they joined the Shah Jahan king's army of the Mughal Empire.
