The Barad are also called the Baraad or Barad Fakir, which means "wandering dervish." Traditionally they were nomads who traded horses and cattle. Most now live in Pakistan’s Sindh Province and their language, Saraiki.
They were once horse and cattle traders, but now the Barad people hold just about any job.
They have a tradition of writing and reciting poems which reflects the Sufi form of Islam.
Though the Barad are official Sunni Muslim, many adhere to the more emotional and mystical Sufi form of Islam.
They face a number of social and economic problems.
The Barad people need to put their hope in the King of kings, realizing that he is the one who gives them worth and dignity.
