Introduction / History

The Pahlavani are of the Persian people cluster. They are found in Afghanistan, mainly in the Chakhansoor Province.

Their primary language is Pahlavani, which is similar to Dari. The literacy rate of their primary language is less than one percent.

The Pahlavani are primarily Shia Muslims. There are few, if any, Christians or churches among them and there are currently no Christian resources translated in Pahlavani.
