Why are they even using such a prefix or bin for that matter or changing their original surname to Baloschi if not due to assimilation? Are Baloch people in Southern Afghanistan calling themselves Muhammad bin Ahmad al-Baluschi?Al means what?
You so conveniently forget "Balushi"..
Numbers doesn't mean "diversity".. nor does location.. if people have the same "ethnicity" or origin.
Same clothes, a little different "style".. also clothing aren't the barometer of diversity.. if so than even we Baloch have a lot of "diversity"... probably more than Arabs.
Moron, even today boys are recruited by those counties from Pak..
And even "2 centuries" didn't change jack... nor will it, if your homeland is just an hour by boat.. Oman is just 1 hour by boat from Makran coast.
And even the Baloch who migrated to east Africa to fight the Portuguese still retain their culture and heritage even after "2 centuries".
Yes , 1 photo enough to shred your nonsensical logic of assimilation...
Had they been "assimilated",
They'd not be calling themselves Baloch, nor been wearing their ethnic clothes..
It would indeed be foolish for an Iranian to call Arab "robes" as an Iranian clothing or culture..
Yes we have.
And when we talk about "assimilation"... Ghilzai And other tribes are a real example .. ethnically Turks, today they can't be differentiated from local Pashtun tribes... they speak Pashto,dress and follow same culture...
You have already showcased your enormous ignorance on this front. Keep thinking that a tiny ethnic group like Baloch in comparison have a more diverse folklore, culture, traditional clothing etc. than 500 million Arabs spread over 2 continents (all continents if the diaspora is included), over 20 + countries and 100's of ancient historical regions with their own distinct traditions. This has to be one of the biggest jokes that I have seen on PDF yet and I have seen a lot of great jokes and absurd statements.
No intermarrying, speaking Arabic as your mother tongue and considering yourself as a Omani. Sure.
Afro-Arabs still retain some of their traditional clothing (which originates in various areas of Sub-Saharan Africa, Sahel, Swahili coastline, Horn of Africa) yet far from all of them speak their original languages. It's called assimilation. Baloch are not any different, especially the old arrivals. You can keep pretending otherwise. When old Arab migrations abroad can become assimilated abroad, everyone else can as well.
Breaking news, Iranians here consider them as Iranians which they are. Similarly Baloch nationals of Oman, many came to Oman long ago and have intermarried, speak Arabic as their mother tongue etc., can be considered as Omani and Arab just as much as all other assimilated/nationalized minorities.
Anyway ignoring what I wrote about @Kuwaiti Girl that disproved your theory of no assimilation? That's one example from PDF alone. So much for that theory. Anyway I don't even need a confirmation of her case. I know a few assimilated people of distant Baloch origin (paternal) who are more Arab than Baloch by ancestry and who speak no word of Baloch and who consider themselves Saudi Arabians. Just like I know Saudi Arabians of Circassian origin who are no differently. One such example is Ibn al-Khattab. Half Circassian yet he spoke no word of it.
Anyway enough of Baloch talk, lol. This is a thread about the Omani military, not Balochs.
