Balochi literature


The need for writing in the world has been emerging and developing in accordance with the rate of progress and needs of each region. It is not yet clear whether there was written scripts in Balochi language in the old times or not. In this field there is a need for further research in Balochistan.


In the 13th century, the foundation for a Balochi government was laid down in Balochistan, but invasion by foreigners such as Ghorian, Gaznavian and Mongols were so extensive that development of a civic society in Balochistan slowed down. Later on the need for writing arose to accomplish governmental tasks, but it occurred at a time where Farsi was used as a medium not only in Iran but also in central Asia and India. Similarly in Balochistan, the Farsi language became the medium language in government and offices.  Because Farsi language used Arabic script, then Arabic script became common in Balochistan.


Prior to the 19th century, the Balochi literature was in oral form which Baloch people kept alive by heart, and did not allow it to be lost. The writing of Balochi literature began in the second half of the 19th century.
