Last Updated: 05 February 2022

The Kundi are a Pashtun beginning tribe of Pakistan. Kundis inhabit the majority of Tank District of Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa, some components of Afghanistan, Khost Balochistan and Kundian in Mianwali District of Punjab Pakistan.

Abdul Quayyum Khan Kundi, Chairman Pakistan Chamber of Commerce USA & CEO Interactive Ventures which has a portfolio of web sites consisting of getPakistan. The KUNDI people, which occupy a triangular area around Tank, are pakhtoons along Tank-Pezu road expanding approximately Mulazai to the adjoining Bhittani area. The Mulazai is friendly with a roadway, which starts at the old Gul Imam railway station. There is another round road recently constructed which begins at Daraki police headquarters on Tank- Pezu roadway bypassing the Daraki village, Pai village and joins the Gul Imam-Mulazai roadway at Ama Khel. Therefore, if a map can be withdrawn, the Kundi triangle is generally between Tank-Pezu and Gul Imam-Mulazai roadway on one side joining the Bhittani area at Shahalam and Mulazai, while on the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 works as a barrier area in between Tank and Marwats attached by Pezu and Bayan pass. These were the old campers routes and the British were the first to create asphalt roadways on these paths. The primary towns of Kundis are Gul Imam, Shahalam, Abezar, Daraki, Pai, Nandoor and Amakhel, while Mulazai is possibly a mix of marwats and kundi. Gul Imam and Shahalam are the genealogical home villages of Kundi KHANS.

Sources/Availability of Drinking Water: 68% have direct accessibility to a water resource, only 3% have safe drinking water via rivers and wells. Formerly part of the Barakzai collection, the Achekzai were divided from the rest of the people by Ahmad Shah Durrani for management functions, and the Achekzai remained among one of the most problematic tribes in the area. Clashes in between the Jalozai and Hasanzai have been a major source of tension in northern Helmand province. In terms of faith, the large bulk of the Hazara are of the Shia Muslim confidence, again unlike the Pashtuns that are Sunni Muslim. In present day Afghanistan, the Hazara are divided geographically into two primary groups: the Hazarajat Hazara and those who live outside the Hazarajat.
