EB1911 article; needs update
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.--18.104.22.168 (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. 22.214.171.124 (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)
The sections about the history of the region contains too many details and it's difficult not to loose the central theme while reading and that is especially, to which empires/states the region belonged throughout history.--Severino (talk) 12:12, 5 September 2015 (UTC)
