They are settled in the territory of the Zeidnat Eimaks [Eimak], with whom they are grouped by Elphinstone and other authorities; but the Firoz-Khoi are not Eimaks or Hazaras, but true Persians both by descent and speech. They form two main divisions - Mahmudi and Dezai, with 30,000 tents, or total population 150,000 to 160,000. (Invalide Russe, 13-25 April, 1879.)
