The Parsis of Karachi

The Parsis of Karachi

(p.189) 5 The Parsis of Karachi
The Zoroastrian Diaspora

John R. Hinnells

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the situation of the Parsis in Karachi, Pakistan. The situation of the Parsis is different here compared to in India and Pakistan in general because they live in an Islamic state. When the Parsis first migrated to Karachi in the 19th century they were moving within the sphere of British rule, for it is only since the arrival of the British in the Province of Sind that there has been a recorded Parsi presence in the region. The Karachi situation is of particular interest given the history of Zoroastrian persecution under Muslim rule.
