Kundi (Pashtun tribe)

The Kundi (Urdu: کنڈی ) kundi son of khako niazi .is a baranch of niazi tribal and in the Afghanistan kundi is the subtribe niazi Pashtun tribe. The KUNDI tribe, which inhabit a triangular area around "Tank" are pakhtoons along Tank-Pezu road extending up to Mulazai to the adjoining Bhittani area. The Mulazai is approachable through a road, which begins at old Gul Imam railway station. The area around this road is mainly inhabited by kundis with perhaps some pocket of Marwats. There is another circular road recently constructed which begins at Daraki (Maikhani) police station on Tank- Pezu road bypassing the Daraki village, Pai village and joins the Gul Imam-Mulazai road at Ama Khel. Thus if a map can be withdrawn the Kundi triangle is mainly between Tank-Pezu and Gul Imam-Mulazai road on one side joining the Bhittani area at Shahalam and Mulazai while on the other side Jatater and Gandapur area around Gul Imam. The kundi area act as a buffer zone between Tank and Marwats connected through Pezu and Bayan pass. These were the old caravan routes and British were the first to construct asphalt roads on these routes. The main villages of Kundis are Gul Imam, Shahalam, Abezar, Daraki, Pai,Nandoor and Amakhel while Mulazai is perhaps mixture of kundi and marwats. Gul Imam and Shahalam are the ancestral home villages of Kundi KHANS. They are the major tribe of District Tank, D.I.Khan and Mianwali. Kundis populate majority of Tank District of Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa, some parts of Afghanistan(Zabul)(Abdul Aziz Kundi is the Chief of Kundi Tribe in Zabul Province of Afghanistan), Khost Balochistan and Kundian in Mianwali District of Punjab Pakistan. A good number of Kundis have rendered their services in field of education, politics, civil services, judiciary research etc. in Pakistan and abroad. [
