History

 

The Wakhi people belong to an ancient Iranian stock of people, whose language Wakhi is the most primitive form of Persian still spoken and differs from the Tadjik language. They have a rich folklore of songs and tales, with their language now written in an Arabic form. The common identity of the Wakhis is a religious heritage dating from the beginning of Islam. In the early 20th century, two complete handwritings of the Persian” Original Text It (Umm- al- kitab) were found in the Wakhan corridor, proving to be of an Arabic text originating from 8th Century Iraq. More recently the Wakhis converted to Ismaili-ism and follow the spiritual leader of the Ismailis, Prince Kareem Aga Khan. Due to the influence of the present Aga Khan and his humanistic western approach to the Ismaili faith, there is a liberal attitude towards the Quran and a general acceptance and openness towards the scriptures in general. The story of the Wakhi’s migration to there present places of habitation is interesting. As a people they had always been content with the scarce resources they had and had never looked beyond their borders for shelter on political or religious grounds. The Wakhi’s though found themselves in trouble by the second half of the 19th century, with the first refugees crossing into Chitral in 1886, due to an unknown cause. The next major migration occurred from 1919 probably due to the general effect of war, famine and mass people migrations resulting from the Bolshevik takeover of Central Asia. The final migration did not take place till 1937, due to pressures and persecutions from the rulers in Afghanistan compulsory recruitment of Wakhi’s into the army. The Wakhi’s still live as semi-pastoral society, depending largely on agriculture and cattle-raising. This however has been seriously disrupted by the upheavals of occupation, and now civil war in Afghanistan and Tadjikistan. Maybe this is one of the primary reasons for the Wakhi people In Chitral, the Wakhan Corridor and High Pamir to now be reported to be widely addicted to opium. This has had disastrous effects on health and income generation. The only place where the Wakhi people have developed and prospered has been in the Gojal region of the upper Hunza valley. Here they predominate and live at unity with their fellow Ismaili Hunzakot neighbors. Benefiting greatly from contact with this progressive people group and the business and tourist opportunities presented by the Karakoram Highway now linking Pakistan with China.

The Wakhi language belongs to the southern group of the Pamir languages, in the Iranian group of the Indo-European family of languages, where the different Ishkashmi and Wakhi languages are included.  The Wakhi language, rich in archaisms, differs considerably from the Pamir languages, and generally from the southeastern group of Iranian languages, having certain common characteristics with the Indian languages. Although divided by borders, the Wakhi language is still very much the same, and dialectal differences are not great. The language of mutual communication, and the written language, for the Ismaelites of the small nations of Pamir has been the Tadzhik language. The Wakhi oral tradition is also bilingual (Wakhi and Tadzhik). On the Upper Wakhandarya, there are noticeable Turkic influences in place-names.  Wakhi-Kirgiz contacts are maintained even today. Many Wakhs also speak the Shugni language. The Wakhi folksong bul’bulik is principally a women’s song, it is sung on the summer pastures. Before the establishment of the Soviet regime, the Wakhs were almost totally illiterate. Nowadays, schooling is obligatory for everyone.  The language for schooling is, without exception, Tadzhik, which places Wakhi in a passive role and accelerates the disintegration of the language. In domestic situation, however, Wakhi is still preferred, whatever the subject, although most Wakhs speak Tadzhik quite fluently.

 The Wakhs      The inhabitants of Wakhan , Boroghil and Gojal-Upper Hunza are the Wakhi tribe who belong to an ancient Iranian stock, They have Moingolide features and it is believed they are the master speakers of Ghalcha language of the past.. A thin wedge of Afghan territory known as the “Wakhan corridor” separates Tajikistan and Pakistan which is the home land of these nomads. In Chitral and Ishkuman, Wakhan is known as Wokh and the people as Wakhi, in Hunza the name of Wakhan is Gojal and the people of Wakhan as Gojali. In the past the name of Hunza was little Gojal, while Wakhan was known as big Gojal.The Wakhi live as a semi-pastoral society, which depends on agriculture and cattle raising. The Wakhi huts are made of mud and due to climate conditions their huts have no veranda or corridor. All the rooms in the house are interconnected and have one outlet at a convenient place well protected from the wind. There is a small outlet for smoke and light. Cooking is done in the living room, while grain storage is in a separate room connected to it. If in the neighborhood of a settlement a suitable base area of stone is located then a central storages place is constructed having separate areas for different families. The people are peace loving modest and friendly. Crimes do not exist in this society and the people have a peaceful existence. Due to the harsh weather and long winters people are addicted to opium.Trans border relations of the frontier people are very common in areas where borders are mere unnatural barriers. When the Persians and Tartars subjugated the areas north of the Hindukush in the 12th century the southern valleys of the Hindukush gained a distinct identity under different names as Bolor, Dardistan, Tibet Gujal, Kashkar etc who were divided by the chains of mountains however the Ghalcha and Dard people living on the northern and southern side of the Hindukush have been close to each other despite the natural hurdle of the mountain chains.Trade caravans and pilgrims from eastern Turkistan used to cross over the Kurambar Boroghil and Darwaza passes into Chitral and this caravan route served as a permanent link between these regions. Many people from Chitral crossed into Wakhan for permanent settlement. The Wakhi herdsmen usually came with their flocks to the Boroghil for summer camps. Wakhi horsemen used to visit for Polo and Buzkashi as far south as Razdan field in Torikho valley.The Wakhi art, craft and architecture occupy a distinct place in the neighboring area. There are certain festivities which mark particular occasions and vary from valley to valley. The Wakhi are fond of music Daf open drum and flute and Rabab are popularly played. Male members are responsible for farming, weaving woolen clothes. While women look after the house and cattle. Source: http://www.hindukushtrails.com/tribes/wakhi.asp

The Wakhan Corridor is a narrow panhandle of alpine valleys and high mountains that stretches eastward from the province of Badakhshan following the head waters of the Amu Daria from Eshkashem to Qala-e-Panj and then the Wakhan river to Sarhad-e-Borghil. Both rivers take there sources in the Pamir Mountains. The Wakhan borders Tajikistan to the north, Pakistan to the south, and the Pamir to the east.
The corridor was established as an imperial buffer zone between the Russian and British empires in the late 19th century. Wakhan is inhabited by people speaking the local Wakhi language. They adhere to the Ismaili branch of the Muslim faith and are followers of the Aga Khan. Qala Panja is the traditional seat of the family of influential hereditary Sayeds, whose head is the local Ismaili religious and social leader or ‘Shah’ of the Wakhan.

Badakhshon Tojikiston

Badakhshan, autonomous region (1991 est. pop. 167,100), c.24,600 sq mi (63,710 sq km), E Tajikistan, in the Pamir. It is bordered by China on the east and by Afghanistan on the south and west and is separated from Pakistan and Azad Kashmir by a narrow strip of Afghan territory. The eastern section (East Pamir) is a high plateau, and the western part (West Pamir) is cut by high ranges and deep, narrow valleys. Khorugh is the capital. The population is mainly Tajik, with small Kyrgyz and Russian minorities. Gold, salt, mica, limestone, and coal are mined. In the east livestock is raised (yaks, sheep, cattle, and goats), and in the western valleys grain, vegetables, and beans are grown. Formerly under the control of the Mongols and the Arabs, the region passed to Russian control in 1895. The area became the Gorno-Badakhshan Autonomous Region in 1925. It was sometimes formerly known as Mountain-Badakhshan.

Toshqerghan, Xinjiang China  

The Wakhis reside in relative isolation in the glacier-capped Pamir Mountains of West China near the borders of Afghanistan, Pakistan and Russia. Towering mountains surround this specially designated Tajik district on three sides and desert on the fourth. The largest concentration of Tajiks live on the edge of Tashkorgan, a small town (population 5,000) that lies 10,000 feet above sea level on the outskirts of a large glacial valley. Tashkorgan is located just off the historically famous Silk Road, an ancient trade route between China and Central Asia. It is a full day’s bus ride from Kashgar, the nearest Chinese city.

Gojal (Pakistan)

Close to the Chinese border, moving north from Gilgit region, is the largest Tehsil of the Northern Areas of Pakistan, commonly known as GOJAL. The equivalent terms tehsil, tahsil, tahasil, taluka, taluk, and taluq refer to a unit of government in some countries of the Indian subcontinent. … This article details only the area administered by Pakistan. …
It is also known as Upper Hunza. Gojal, basically, is a network of small and large valleys sharing borders with Hunza in the South, China in the North & East and Afghanistan in the North West. Shishkat is the first village of Gojal. Except for the Shimshal, Misgar and Chipursan valleys, all villages of Gojal can be seen while traveling on the Karakuram Highway.
The
Karakorum Highway (KKH) crosses Gojal entering China at theKhunjerab Pass linking Pakistan to China and, in the future, other Central Asian states such as Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan, and Kazakhstan. The Karakoram Highway (KKH) is the highest international road in the world. … The Karakoram Highway (KKH) is the highest international road in the world. … Khunjerab Pass from Pakistani side Snow leopard, an endangered species, is found in the Khunjerab National Park The Khunjerab Pass is a high mountain pass on the northern border of Pakistan with the Peoples Republic of China. … Map of Central Asia showing three sets of possible boundaries for the region Central Asia located as a region of the world Central Asia is a vast landlocked region of Asia.

People have migrated into Gojal from Wakhan, parts of China (like Ruskum) and Hunza valley. The current demographic trends of the region are, somehow, reflected in in the table provided below.
Historically the people were shepherd and/or small scale farmers. But with the passage of time services industry has taken the lead and now most of the people are employed in the government and non-governmental organizations. A significant number of the locals is also engaged in trade.

History

There is no written history about the earlier settlement of People in Gojal valley. Different valleys and villages in Gojal were settled during different times and people from different surrounding regions. Most of the researchers are in view that initially the Kirghiz nomads were using the areas in upper Gojal as winter pastures. It is said that later on when Wakhies migrated from Wakhan to this region the Kirghiz nomad left. It is very difficult to say anything about when the Wakhies settled in Gojal. However, it is narrated that the earlier Wakhi migrated from Wakhan and settled in Ishkook (Chipursun) valley and later to Boiber areas. It is also narrated that when Hunza was under the Central Government of Gilgit the Ishkook settlement was very wealthy and regularly paying tax in terms of cattle and other dairy products to the Raja of Gilgit. As Hunza emerged as an independent state during the early 15th century so it can be infered that different valleys in upper Gojal were inhabited by the Wakhi speaking migrants even before emergence of the Hunza state . Later on, the oral history narrated holds, a catastrophic flood destroyed the Ishkook settlement during 18th century.

 


It is commonly believed that the first settler in Avgarch valley was the legendary Baba Sufi who came from Ghoron of of Badakhshan in Afghanistan traveling along the Amu Daria (or Oxus) River. He is said to first have settled in Sost, but soon moved to the more secluded and secure Boiber Valley where he made Avgarch his permanent home. As the population grew, people spread out and moved down to Galapan, Gircha, Sartiz, Jamalabad, Morkhun, Nazimabad and Sost, all of which comprise the Avgarch valley. The local people affiliates a old house in Sost with the Raja of Gilgit Thra Khan (1310) which was preserved by AKCSP. If this old house is really of the time of Raja Thra Khan then this house is older than that of the creation of Hunza state and is older than Altit and Baltit forts.


Chapursan’s history is marked by a remarkable amount of local myths and legends. The valley is said to be resettled many time due to floods. The valley now comprised of different villages from Yarzrich to Zood Khun. Raminj is a Burusho village while others are Wakhies. The valley is populated by the migrants from Wakhan and people who recently migrated from Gulmit, Passu, Ghulkin and Hussaini.
 
Passu was first inhibited by “Quli” from Wakhan. According to local elders, the old Passu was once home to some 300 households. Due to Shimshal flood and continuous erosion from river side the old Passu settlement destroyed forcing the population to leave and to migrate back to their places of origin in Central Asia. Later, Passu was resettled by a man named Quli, who is today generally recognized as the ancestor of the majority of Passu’s population. Due to this reference the people of Passu is still called Quili kuts. People from Quli kuts (tribe) is also inhibited in Karimabad, Murtazaabad and many other villages in Central Hunza. The Quli kuts in Central Hunza later adopted the Burushu way of life and now speak Burushaski language.

.
According to oral traditions, like Passu, Hussaini village has been settled twice. It is said that the first people who settled in Hussaini were called Ghosanos. According to this theory Hussaini is modified from Ghusani. The origin of the Ghosano is not exactly known, however, some elders narrate that these people were the descendents of the Warshighoom state, called Mehtarjaos (the princes but not legitimate to share in the governance). It is said that these people were having very close relations with the people of neighboring village Passu and celebrating major events collectively. The elders narrate that during such an event in Hussaini people from both villages started fighting. Most of Ghusanos were killed while some of them ran away downstream with the Hunza River. Raja of Gilgit arrested Sirang Momad and his son Sirang Qmut from Passu and gave shelter to Gusanos. The people from Ghosani left the village, and the ruler of Gilgit settled them some where around Gilgit. Thus the Ghusanos was dislocated from their land. It is said that a prince named Musofir ran away with his brother Majower from Ptukh Wakhan (presently in Afghanistan) due to defeat in tug of war for throne of the state. Their elder brother was crown prince. He was unhappy with his brothers due to his position. The younger brothers were always scared of the elder brother because he could kill them to save his throne. One day both of the brothers left the sate and Majower escaped to Ishkomen valley (Presently in the Ghizer district of the Northern Areas), and Musofir came to Hussaini and settled there.

.

There is no clue about the earlier settlement in Gulmit village. It is also said that Gulmit was populated during the reign of Raja of Gilgit Mir Malik Thrakhani. It is said that Raja Mir Malik during the life of his father Su Malik settled in Gulmit and constructed a mosque which was known as Masjid Mir Malik. According to this theory it is said that when Hunza and Nagar Principalities were divided between Girghis and Maghlote (twin prince from Gilgit), at that time Mir Malik while coming back from Ishkook decided to settle down in Gulmit. It means that before that Gulmit was already inhibited. According to another theory it is said that during the reign of Ayasho II (1540s) 2 person Khawaja Arab and Rozdar from Nagar and a person Budul from Chaprot Nagar settled down in Gulmit. However, it is not true that all the main clans settled in Gulmit during same time. Different tribes migrated and settled in Gulmit during different time period. The distribution of land among different tribes can give real indications. Gulmit has the largest Wakhi population however, it is narrated that all the major clans in Gulmit migrated from Nagar, Ganish and Chaprot. It may not possible that within a short period of time these people adopted the Wakhi way of life and language under the influence of a minority Wakhi people settled in surrounding villages. Gulmit since olden times occupies an influential position as compare to surrounding villages in Gojal valley. It is therefore rationale to say that the people who for the first time settled in Gulmit were from Wakhi ethnic group whether they migrated from Chipursun border or from Ishkoman border. In Gulmit the decendents of Budul is called Budul kotor and Rozdor as Rozdor Kotor. The decendents of Khawaja Arab is divided in two sub tribes Chorshimbi Kutor and Bori Kutor while it is said that the descendents of another brother Mahmood perished due to mass killing of their family by Mir of Hunza. Later a person from Ishkomen settled in Gulmit whose tribe is now called “Hari Kutor”. A Kirghiz from Riskeem also settled in Gulmit whose tribe is now called ‘Mir Gul Kutor’.
 .
It is said that a Burusho from Central Hunza Bu Singh was the first who with the permission of Mir of Hunza constructed the first irrigation channel in Ghulkin. The name is derived from two words of Wakhi dialect, ‘Ghulk’, meaning ‘well’ and ‘kin’, meaning ‘whose’. It is said that Bu Singh married more than one time. One wife was from the Bakhthi kutor tribe of Shimshal so the decedents are now called Bakhthi kutor in Ghulkin. One wife was from Dhiramthing tribe of central Hunza whose decendents are called Dhiramthing. The 3rd wife was from Khoru kuts tribe of Hunza so called Khuru kutz. It is also said that the foster brother of Ayasho I, Khawaja Ahmed was also allotted land in Ghulkin and his decendet is called Khuru kutz. Another person Mamo Singh son of Mayor from Altit also settled in Ghulkin who is the ancesstor of Nakhchira.
.
Khyber’s original name was Jakemal. The name Khyber stems probably from a comparison between the famous ‘undefeatable’ Khyber Fort from the tales of conqueror Hazarat Ali, and Jakemal’s location in a narrow gorge, surrounded by hazardous cliffs, making it in people’s minds equally ‘unconquerable’. Today Khyber is the home of both Wakhi and Burusho people. It is said that the earlier settler in Khyber was from Gulmit who later on left the area and occupied by other settlers.

.
The first settlers to the remote valley of Shimshal are estimated to have arrived some 400 – 500 years ago. At that time Shimshal was under the rule of the Mir of Hunza who sent criminals and society outcasts to Shimshal for punishment. According to oral traditions Mamu Singh was sent to the Wakhan to find a new ruler for Hunza due to murder of Girgiz (sahib Khan), by his brother Maghlot (Jamsheed Khan of Nagar). Mamu Singh did not find a ruler, but instead fell in love with a girl. After his return to Hunza he begged his father, the Wazir, to let him go back to the Wakhan and marry the girl, but his wish was refused. Finally he could not bear it any longer, returned to the Wakhan and married the girl. The young couple, as they could not go back to Hunza, settled in Avgarch. But the area was not safe and often raided by Kyrgyz, so Mamu Singh decided to look for a better place. One day, he climbed Qarun Pass and from the top looked down and saw a lush valley—Shimshal! Slowly, he and his wife moved up the valley and near today’s village of Shimshal, Mamu Singh discovered a spring, an old water channel and a small hut. People have lived here before. So Mamu Singh settled there. Later, the couple was blessed with a son, named Sher. Sher grew to become a strong young man. On a hunting trip, he discovered a flat grassy area—Pamir. However, Kyrgyz had settled in Pamir and claimed it as their land, but Sher saw it as his own property. Sher and the Kyrgyz decided to resolve the conflict with a polo game. Sher had no horse, so he had to play on a yak against the Kyrgyz on their fast horses. Nevertheless, Sher won the polo game, the intruders left and since then, the pastures beyond Shimshal Pass belong to the people of Shimshal.

.

Misgar marked the last outpost of the British empire and served as a busy dispatching and telegraph station and worked as last post between Hunza and China through Mintika and kilik Passes. Today, remnants of the Silk Route and the British occupation can still be seen, making Misgar a historically fascinating place. Today the Misgar’s population is Burusho. Until the mid nineteenth century Misgar, originally a Wakhi settlement was periodically inhabited and raided by Kyrgyz nomads coming from the Wakhan. The Mir of Hunza, having an interest to secure the territory leading to Afghanistan and China ordered a few of his man to drive out any intruders and to permanently settle in Misgar. According to oral traditions the present era of the valley’s history began in 1844 during the reign of Mir Ghazan Khan I when he forced twenty-three men from Hunza to went up to Mintaka to secure the territory and settle there. Long before that, however, the area was known to the travelers and traders of the Silk Route and later, during the British occupation Misgar became an important outpost. Mir Ghazan Khan-I also settled people from Central Hunza to Khudaabad during his reign.
The last settlements in Gojal occurred during the reign of Mir Nazim Khan (1892-1931). During this period The barren lands in Shishkat was settled with Burushu from Central Hunza in 1903.
Shishkat is thus also called as Nazimabad I. During same period the barren lands in Upper Sost was also inhibited by the people from Central Hunza which is called Nazimabad II. Raminj was also settled down during his reigh.

This makes it a matter of far more than antiquarian interest whether past philosophers are being correctly understood and whether revisions and modifications of their views are well-motivated or merely the result of misreadings and distortions, blinkered through the influence of intervening prejudices. ,
