Introduction / History

The Munji are of the Kashmiri people cluster and are, for the most part, only found in Afghanistan. They reside in northeastern Afghanistan in the Munjan and Mamalgha Valleys. This is a very remote area of Afghanistan and is separated by a mountain pass. Some have fled to Chitral, Pakistan, but plan to return to Afghanistan when it becomes more peaceful.


What are Their Lives Like?

They are also called the Munjiwar, Munjhan, Munjani, or the Munji-Yidgha. They speak Southern Munji. The Munji population is between ten to fifteen percent literate.


What are Their Beliefs?

The Munji are Muslims. There are few if any believers or churches among them. There are no resources available to them in Southern Munji and no known groups working among them.
