The Hazaras (Persian: هزاره‎, Hazaragi: آزره‎) are an ethnic group native to the region of Hazarajat in central Afghanistan, speaking the Hazaragi variant of Dari, itself an eastern variety of Persian and one of the two official languages of Afghanistan.

They are overwhelmingly Twelver Shia Muslims and make up the third largest ethnic group in Afghanistan. They also make up a significant minority group in the neighboring Pakistan, with a population of over 650,000–900,000, largely living in the region of Quetta.
