It is hard to trace the historical account of Musakhel. However, by studying the history of Kandahar and northern Balochistan, some historical account can be ascertained regarding Musakhel. Accordingly, this area, being a part of Kandahár province, has been ruled by the Ghaznavids, Maliks of Kurat Dynasty, Amir Timur and his successors (1383-1470 AD), Sultan Husain Mirza of Herát (1470-1480 AD), and Amir Shuja-ud-Din Zunnún (1480-1504). In 1505 AD, the Mughals conquered the province of Kandahár and held it till 1559 AD, after which, the Safavid kings of Persia ruled.
The Mughals regained the province in 1595 AD, and lost again in 1622 AD, to the Safavid kings of Persia. This time, the Safavids, conferred the government of Pishin and its tribal dependencies upon Sher Khan Tareen. He, after seven years, refused to submit to the governor of Kandahár and became semi-independent, however, he had to retreat later on. In 1709 AD, the Afghan inhabitants rose under Mir Wais Ghilzai and established the Ghilzai power in Khandahar. The Ghilzai power was terminated by Nadir Shah 1737AD. After the assassination of Nadir Shah in 1747 AD, the first democratic Government was established in Khandahar by Afghans and they elected Ahmed Shah Durrani as their ruler in 182, the first Amir of Afghanistan, Dost Muhammad Barkzai, took ho;ld of the area and annexed it to Afghanistan. . After the first phase of the Afghan war in 1878-79 AD, the British took control of northern areas of Balochistan under the treaty of Gandamak. During 1879-84 AD, efforts were made to extend the British influence over the Khetrans and Musakhels of the current Musakhel territory.
. The Musakhels’ took part in atrocities committed by the Kakars under Shah Jahan in 1884, but surrendered to British government on the conclusion of expedition in same year. On 1 November, 1887, the whole area was declared a part of British India. Zhob Agency was formed in 1890 and Musakhel territory was annexed to it. Musakhel was made a Tehsil in 1892 and was transferred to Loralai District in October 1903. remained a Tehsil of Loralai district till 1 January 1992; when it was notified as a district as a result of dividing Loralai district into 3 districts, Loralai, Musakhel, and Barkhan. Musakhel was separated from Loralai after having been granted district status on 1 January, 1992.The district headquarter is in “Musakhel Bazar”. The district is located in the east of the Quetta City, the provincial capital of Balochistan, sharing its boundaries in the east with Punjab and Khyber Pakhtonkhawa provinces.
