Linguists have classified the total languages of the world in eight parts by seeing the comparison of the languages and national relations of the ancient languages. No doubt, all of them belong their particular territories and nations. In fact, many languages have broken into parts due to the passage of time, but their relation and taste match with one another. However, Baluchi the language of Baloch, belongs to Aryan group of family and have deep relations with the other languages of the same family.

Sayad Hashmi believed that Baluchi has originated in Avastan language, originating from the same Aryan family like the other languages of the same group. It was the language of Hazrat Zarthisht, who was recognized as one of the massengers of God. The religion, which he belong to, was known as Zoroastrianism and the book of this religion “Avasta” was written in Avastan language.
