"Your information about the religon in Baltistan is not correct.Your concept about the noobakhshi's are not correct.The main difference between shias and noorbakhshis is that the prior has the concept of taqleed.All other believes are common.≤§ΜŒŞĄΜ§≥ "

As it was unencyclopedic content in the actual article, I removed it, and put it here. --Paul Pieniezny (talk) 13:11, 8 January 2008 (UTC)

  • Sir,you have writen that islam has reached here in 16th century but actually advent of islam is before can get that from the constructions of AMEER KABEER SYED ALI HAMDANI like CHAQCHAN mosque.And the other thing is thet taraveeh prayers are also offer by noorbakshis in the month of RAMADAN.And it is not a branch of SHIA but it is a religion by it self which has so many similarities as well as differences with other sects. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 07:13, 30 August 2008 (UTC)


Presumably the Noorbakshi tradition is not unique to Baltistan. If not perhaps all the content about Noorbakshi beliefs would be much better off in a seperate "Noorbakshi" article. All this stuff has also been duplicated in the article Ghanche District.

Salam to all;

For your kind information the Norbakhshis sect is present only in a district i.e. Ghanche, and small part of shigar. they are not more than 10-15% of baltistan. and you will not find them in whole world even then in baltistan We agree that Islam in baltistan preached by the iranian scholar HAMDANI and about 80% shias agree with this,,,,, but i think some people misunderstood and this became a reason to the origination of the sect (Noorbaskhshi). —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 07:14, 29 September 2010 (UTC)

Sect mystery: I only know the Indian side of Baltistan. I recently visited Turtuk, which was opened to foreigners with permits in 2010. Bogdang is almost all Nurbakshi, while Turtuk is mixed: Nurbakshi, Sunni and another group called what sounded to me like Alahadis (Ahle Hadis?). Some local people (I think they were Sunni) emphatically denied that there are Nurbakshis, and said there are only Shia and Sunni. Then, after I heard about the Alahadis (I met local people who identify as Alahadis and local Sunnis who say there are these three groups) I asked more people, and some of them emphatically denied the existence of Alahadis. Meanwhile after getting back to Leh, it became clear that Kargili and Purik Shias clearly consider Nurbakshi to be a different sect, not Shia. There's something mysterious going on there, with local people denying the existence of either Nurbakshi or Alahadis or both, whereas I met people who identify as each of these sects, and who clearly detailed several differences in the practices of each of them.

Can anyone clarify this? Or a reference to any books or articles? Thank you! BeckyLadakh (talk) 13:39, 27 December 2010 (UTC) ok

the mentioning of nurbakshis in this article is important because they were the first muslims in baltistan (while shia islam appeared in 18 century by ghulam abbas chutron who was died in 1926, wahabism were introduced by mullah peshawari who's appearance in baltistan is very late too ) and hamadani was of kubruwi order which is now called nurbakshi order there strength in baltistan is about one and half lakh in baltistan while balti people of dehra don india are also belongs to the same sect i m not saying this as a nurbakshi but said what the truth isBaltistani (talk) 10:27, 9 August 2013 (UTC)
