Lashari or Lasari is a Muslim Jat clan found in Sindh province of Pakistan. Laashaari (लाशारी, Urdu: لاشاری) is the name of a Baloch tribe in Pakistan and Iranian Balochistan. Lasha/Lashari/Lasi/,Las/Laghari clan is found in Afghanistan also. [1]


In 1487 a great Baloch Kingdom was formed under Mir Chakar Rind's rule, which was later destroyed by a civil war between the Lashari and Rind tribes. Mir Ghoram Khan Lashari and Mir Chakar Khan Rind were leaders in their tribes during the Baloch civil war.

After this War, the Lashari and Rind tribes settled mostly in Sindh, Punjab, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, and in the Thal Desert (in Muzaffargarh and Layyah District).


Subodh Kapoor [2] mentions that Maghazzi is one of three great tribes of Baluchistan, the other two being the Nahrui and Kind. Jell and Shadia are the chief towns of Maghazzi, who have been located for long time in Kachi. They are divided into four principal clans, of which the Bhutani is the more illustrious and furnishes the Sirdar of the whole. The Maghazzi and the Rind are alike addicted to the abuse of ardent spirits bhang and opium. Their clans are the Abra, Birdi, Isobani, Jakra, Jakrani, Jatki, Kakrani, Kalandarani, Lashari, Maghzi, Mntaiki, Musani, Nari, Turbandzai and Unar.

Maghazzi also knows as Magzi or Magsi. Maghazzi is a Baloch tribe, and Baloch are also mentioned as Jat clan. So, Birdi is showing as a clan of Maghazzi in this book so Birdi are also be called as Jats as branch of Maghazzi.
