The Musa Khel, or Moosa Khel, is a Pashtun tribe of Gharghasht origin. According to Horace Arthur Rose and the 1911 Encyclopædia Britannica, they are part of the greater Kakar tribe.[1][2] The tribe originates from Ghazni province in Afghanistan and resides in the tribal range of Musakhel and Batagram District in the Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa province of Pakistan and Afghanistan. Moosa Khel has the lowest literacy rate in Pakistan—10.37%—and is also a sub-tribe to Babozai, which is part of the major Pashtun tribe.[citation needed]
