tanoli is not trib of hazara[edit]

there is no relation between the Hazara tribe of Afghanistan and the Tanolis of the Hazara region in Pakistan. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Adilkhantanoli (talkcontribs) 02:44, 1 February 2011 (UTC)

Actually this is not strictly true. The Tanolis of Hazara region og Pakhtunkhwa are divided into many groups: the people of Tanawal who were alreaday in that area before the arrival of Tanaolies from across the Indus River i.e. Mahaban Mountains. These people came to be called Tanoli purely because they are resident in the areas later to be known as Tanawal - the origin of these people is mixed i.e. Awans, Abbassis, Gujjars etc. Second come the ruling tribe and those who came with them being a collection of tribes and clans originating in Turkic, Mughals, Afghans and Hazaras from Ghazni and regions contigous to it.It must be remembered that along with Swatis the Tanaolies crossed the Indus and unseated the ruling elite of Karlugh Turks, a Turkic/Hazara people. Some of these people stayed and were Pashtunised and are now within the fold of Pashtun tribal structure. Those people who identify themselves with Tanoli surname, in Hazara as well as in Karachi, are in fact not part of Tanaoli background but of original Hindki people without link to thje great Tanaoli tribes who are Afghans and resident in Hazara, Ghazni, northeastern Iran etc. and known as Tani, Taniwal, Tanavoli, Daulatzais etc. Moarrikh (talk) 13:41, 12 April 2012 (UTC)
