Overview: Punjab is a geographical region straddling the border between Pakistan and India, including the Punjab province of Pakistan and the Indian states of Punjab, Haryana, Himachal Pradesh, Chandigarh and some northern parts of the capital of Delhi. The Punjabi people are an Indo-Aryan ethnic group originating from the Punjab region. Traditional Punjab identity was primarily linguistic. Regardless of religious affiliation or ethnic background, those speaking a Punjab language were regarded as Punjabi. Today, people of Punjabi origins are considered to be Punjabi even if they no longer speak a Punjabi language. The Punjabi people cluster encompasses a wide range of ethnic and religious groups. Islam, Hinduism and Sikhism are all practiced by Punjabi people groups.
