It would appear that a separate page for Buddhism as a major religion and its influence on the country of Afghanistan is entirely appropriate. The page Pre-Islamic Hindu and Buddhist heritage of Afghanistan holds no information that is duplicated on the page Buddhism in Afghanistan. The deletion of Buddhism in Afghanistan serves only to aggregate all non-Islamic religions and negate the influence of this religion on the development of the region. There would be no way to accurately assess the "survival" of the religion as several current day non-Islamic practitioners have been arrested and sentenced to death giving strong indication that any Buddhist practitioner would be imprudent to declare his or her practice.
