The Taraki is a Ghilji Pashtun tribe; many are found in Ghazni (their traditional powerbase) and Zabol provinces of Afghanistan. They are divided into six khels: the Firoz, Suhail, lilizai, Gurbuz, Bado, Saki, and Na.[clarification needed]
The Tarakai were one of the Pashtun tribes resettled under the rule of king Abdur Rahman Khan in the late 19th century. While clearing the Hazara people of Bamiyan to make way for the Tarakai Pashtuns, the ethnic cleansing was so extreme that "not even the dogs remained behind."
