Islam - Shia (Twelver and Ismaili), with a Sunni minority[6]

The Hazāra (Persian: هزاره) are a Persian-speaking ethnic group who mainly live in central Afghanistan. They are overwhelmingly Shia Muslims and comprise the third largest ethnic group of Afghanistan,[7][8][9] forming ca. 9% of the total population.[1][10] Over half a million Hazaras live in neighboring Pakistan (especially in the city of Quetta) and a similar number or less may be found in Iran.
