This is largely a copy of the text in the 1911 Encyclopædia Britannica Eleventh Edition (hence the "kafirs" reference); however, it is missing the second page of that article in the first place. Then it should be brought up to date - there are OCR errors and obviously dated information. See here and the Columbia encyclopedia. David Brooks 21:56, 16 July 2006 (UTC)
There was a wrong sentence about Pashtu and it´s origine. The correct version of the state is An Iranian language of the east, perhaps a Saka dialect, Paṧtō originated in the northern part of the eastern Iranian area and borrowed a great deal from Indo-Aryan..... Someone with alian intentions changed it and added Badakhchan to it.--184.108.40.206 (talk) 13:32, 24 July 2009 (UTC)
The original source which was used was "Afghanistan, vi. Paṧtō, G. The position of Paṧtō within Iranic" from this article. I verified it was correct and restored. 220.127.116.11 (talk) 08:42, 25 July 2009 (UTC)
Source for Badakhshan history, 1895 British "Asiatic quarterly review"
Also an old (obsolete?) source, but fascinating if anyone wants to add any historical details: *Revelations Regarding Badakhshan. The Asiatic quarterly review, Volume 9. Swan Sonnenshein & Co., 1895 . All up on GoogleBooks. MatthewVanitas (talk) 02:28, 18 December 2009 (UTC)
