  • Hazarewal is another name or term for the Hindkowan people, a Hindko speaking community who belong to the Hazara region of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Potohar Plateau and Northern Punjab, Pakistan. The Hazarewal or Hindkowans are not to be confused with the ethnic Hazara people inhabiting parts of Baluchistan province in Pakistan or areas of neighbouring Afghanistan. The Hazarewals have, notably, over the last few years, found themselves increasingly in favour of separation and autonomy from the rest of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province, even though they make a clear majority in only two districts of Khyber-Paktunkhwa Province, Abbottabad and Haripur, and the eastern part of Mansehra.
