[[[[[Actually when this area was called Bactria there were no pashtuns living not even 500 km close to it.Bactria is a pure persian,dari,farsi,tajiki heritage and so the Avesta and the zoroastrian.The pure root of todays persian langauge is taken from ancient Bactria. The greatest parsian poets and writers were from Bactria. The history of the Pashtuns that are living around those area now adays goes back to 100 or 150 years ago. I request Mr Amanullah Ghilzai to research more and read some history books. He should try to write the real history. ]]]]]

In response to the above...there were no Tajiks living in the area either since they didn't exist. Explain how Bactrian is a "pure persian,dari,farsi,tajiki heritage" when Bactrian is considered an Eastern-Iranian language while Old Persian and all that came after are Western Iranian. It's rather foolish to inject your political bias into matters of history. That's not a very scholarly thing to do now, is it? I didn't think so. --Moved by Rich Farmbrough 09:02 23 August 2006 (GMT).
