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).
