Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Mastoi or Mustoi are a Baloch tribe in the Balochistan, Sindh, and Punjab provinces of Pakistan. Mastois are the descendants of Mir Chakar Khan Rind Baloch. There are different views; some historians are of the view that Mastoi tribe is an offshoot of Rind, the main Baloch tribe. But few other writers and renowned historians opines that Mastoi is an independent Baloch tribe. On the other hand there are few oral traditions which say that "Mero" and "Masti" were brothers, Rind tribe is descendants of Mero and Mastoi are the descendants of "Masti" or Mir Masti Khan. While there is another oral tradition that during a tribal conflict forefathers of Mastoi fought with great bravery and chivalry and that's why they were given the tittle of Mast or Mast'an, which means in Balochi language brave, courageous and chivalrous. Therefore from onward as time passed that section of Baloch population came to be known as Mastoi.show more
