The Saraikis (Punjabi: سرائیکی قوم), also known as Multanis, are an ethnolinguistic group in central and southeastern Pakistan, primarily southern Punjab. They speak Saraiki, which is a closely related dialect of Punjabi.
The Saraiki people follow many religions, among them mostly Islam. A small minority of Saraikis follow Christianity, the Baha'i Faith, Sikhism and Hinduism. After the independence of Pakistan in 1947, some of the minority Hindus and Sikhs migrated to India. A significant number of Saraiki-speaking people also reside in Afghanistan and many also work in the Persian Gulf countries.
