Solution of Afghan Conflict and Trouble of Pashtun Nation.

Afghanistan with 32,500,000 populations is not a Pashtun state. Afghanistan is a multiethnic society. 50% Afghani speaks Dari (Afghan Persian) and only 35% speaks Pushto. 11% speaks Uzbek and Turkmen. 4% speak other languages.

According to the 2014 estimate of Afghanistan, the 42% or 13,650,000 inhabitants of Afghanistan are Pashtun and 58% or 18,850,000 inhabitants of Afghanistan are Non-Pashtun and majority of them are Tajik 27% or 8,775,000, Uzbek 9% or 2,925,000, Hazara 8% or 2,600,000, Aimaq 4% or 1,300,000, Turkmen 3% or 975,000.

Pashtun nation comprises of about 60 tribes of varying size and with a worldwide population of 35,000,000.

The population of Pashtun in
Afghanistan is 13,650,000 and the population of Pashtun in Pakistan is 21,500,000. But, 3,000,000 Afghan Pashtun refugees are living in Pakistan and 650,000 in other countries. Therefore, at present Pashtun presence in Pakistan is 24,500,000 and 650,000 in other countries, whereas, only 10,000,000 Pashtun presence is in Afghanistan and it is 28.5% population of Afghanistan.

Pakistan, out of 24,500,000 Pashtuns, 17,000,000 are living in KPK, 4,000,000 in Karachi, 2,500,000 in Baluchistan, 1,000,000 in Punjab.

As the Pashtuns are now scattered, therefore, they have diverged economic and social interests.

Pashtuns settled in Non-Pashtun areas are now engaged in the stability of their economic and social life. Therefore, without involving and indulging in Pashtun nationalist politics, 650,000 Pashtuns in other countries, 1,000,000 Pashtuns in Punjab and 4,000,000 in Karachi and rural areas of Sindh are taking interest to adjust themselves to the economic and social life of their current residence. To support the Pashtun nationalist politics will damage their economic and social stability in the Non-Pashtun area and atmosphere.

2,500,000 Pashtuns in Balochistan and 17,000,000 in KPK are old settlers of
Baluchistan and KPK. Due to their economic and social contacts in Non-Pashtun areas, now they are more interested in their economic and social prosperity instead of Pashtun nationalist politics. Therefore, they will also not support the Pashtun nationalist politics due to the fear of economic and social damage in their contacts in Non-Pashtun areas, especially with the Punjabi bureaucracy, establishment and in the areas of Punjab, Karachi, and rural Sindh.

Hence, the 10,000,000 Pashtuns in
Afghanistan have two options;

1. To absorb themselves with the 58% or 18,850,000 Non-Pashtun Tajik, Uzbek, Hazara, Aimaq, Turkmen inhabitants of

2. To join with the Pakistani Pashtuns, those are the 8% population of Pakistan and 24,500,000 populations out of the 35,000,000 worldwide populations of Pashtuns, by separating their Pashtun area of eastern Afghanistan and to become the part of Punjabi-majority state Pakistan after declaring the Pashtun area of eastern Afghanistan as a province of Pakistan.

Note; - The suitable solution of Afghan Conflict and trouble of Pashtun, Tajik, Uzbek, Turkmen, Hazara, Aimaq in
Pakistan and the Central Asian States is;

Pashtun area of
Afghanistan should be the province of Pakistan.

Tajik area of
Afghanistan should be the province of Tajikistan.

Uzbek area of
Afghanistan should be the province of Uzbekistan.

Turkmen area of
Afghanistan should be the province of Turkmenistan.

Hazara and Aimaq area of Afghanistan should be a Free State Uygurstan.
