  • Jalal Khan (father)

Rind Khan, who's known for being the founder of a main Baloch Tribe which was named after him, the Rind Tribe,[1][2] was one of the four sons of Jalal Khan[1][2](the founder and former leader of the Baloch Tribe) and the brother of the founders of the other main Baloch tribes King Hoth, Bibi Jato, Kora Khan and Lashar Khan.[1][2] He had two uncles from his father's side, Mir Ali[2] and Mir Nos.[2] One of the known nephews is Mir Aalii, son of King Hoth and father of Mir Dostein from the legendary Baloch folklore/lovestory “Sassui Punnuh”.[3]

Ancestry and distant family[edit]

Being the son of Jalal Khan,[1] he was a descendant of the Islamic Prophet Muhammad’s uncle, Ameer Hamza.[4][5] This makes him and all Baloch people the descendants of the Arabian clan Banu Hashim from the Quraish tribe.

His ancestors are believed to be native to Aleppo, modern day Syria.[4][5]

Rind Khan, like the rest of the Baloch people, has a possibility to be distantly related to the Oghuz Turks,[6] Seljuks and Kurds[6] and as well as the Ayyubids.

Personal life[edit]

Rind Khan was the official heir to the throne of Baloch as he was the eldest son of Jalal Khan[2][1]. But due to the fact that many people didn’t see him fit for a leader, they formed different tribes with the help of his siblings[1][2]. So instead, he’s now remembered in many places as the founder and leader of one of the main, most powerful and one of the largest (if not the largest) tribe of the Baloch, the Rind Tribe[1]. Rind Khan’s unsuccessfulness had one major reason; his rivalry with his younger brother Hoth.[2]
