The Baluchi language is a Northwestern Iranian language spoken in the Balochistan region of Pakistan. It is the provincial language of Balochistan and is also spoken in parts of Afghanistan and Iran. Baluchi is a member of the Northwestern Iranian branch of the Indo-Iranian language family. It is written in the Perso-Arabic script and has about 3 million speakers.
The Baluchi language has a rich oral tradition and is used in literature, poetry and songs. It is also the language of the Baloch people, who are a semi-nomadic ethnic group inhabiting the Balochistan region. The Baloch people have a rich cultural heritage and their language is an important part of their identity.
The Baluchi language is under threat from the dominant languages in the region, such as Urdu, Pashto and Persian. In Pakistan, the government has made efforts to promote the use of Baluchi in the media and in education, but the language continues to decline in use. There is a need to further promote the use of Baluchi in order to preserve the language and its associated culture.
