The Saraikis (Saraiki: سرائیکی قوم, Gurmukhi: ਸਰਾਇਕੀ ਕੌਮ), are an ethnolinguistic group in central and southeastern Pakistan, primarily southern Punjab. Their language is Saraiki. The Saraiki people did not see themselves as a distinct ethnic group until the 1960s. An Islamic identity formed the basis of the majority community's group consciousness for centuries prior to the establishment of Pakistan.
