population serving

Center for Applied Linguistics (CAL) location United States date June 30, 2002 Dari is the most widely spoken language in Afghanistan and the mother-tongue (first language) of approximately 50% of the population (Demography of Afghanistan), serving as the country's lingua franca. The Iranian and Afghan dialects of Persian are highly mutually intelligible, with differences found primarily in the vocabulary and phonology. Political views on the language The native-speakers of Dari usually call their language ''Farsi''. However, the term ''Dari'' has been officially promoted by the government of Afghanistan for political reasons, and enjoys equal official status alongside Pashto in Afghanistan. The local name for Persian language was officially changed from Farsi to Dari in 1964. Willem Vogelsang, "The Afghans", Blackwell Publishing, 2002 Declassified, Dr. Zaher said there would be, as there are now, two official languages, Pashto and Farsi, though the latter would henceforth be named Dari. In respective linguistic boundaries, Dari is the medium of education with Pashto being taught as a second language. Dari is considered a more prestigious language Commons:Category:Afghanistan WikiPedia:Afghanistan Dmoz:Regional Asia Afghanistan

diversity large

Greeks , Iranians (Iranian peoples), Arabs (Arab people), Turks (Turkic people), Scythians, Afghans (Pashtun people) to name a few and also because of its geopolitical location straddling the Iranian Plateau, Central Asian, Tibetan and South Asian genetic spheres and as a result, the phenotypic expression of its people is reflective of this diversity. Large influxes of refugees from the surrounding nations have further exacerbated this change (Muhajirs (Muhajir (Pakistan)) from India in 1947, Kashmiris (Kashmiri people) refugees in 1948, Iranians in 1978, Afghans in th 1980s, Tajiks and Iraqis in 2001 etc..)

Afghanistan

'''Afghanistan''' , making it the 41st (List of countries and dependencies by area) largest country in the world.

Human habitation in Afghanistan dates back to the Middle Paleolithic Era (Middle Paleolithic),

The political history of the modern state of Afghanistan began with the Hotak and Durrani (Durrani Empire) dynasties in the 18th century. In the late 19th century, Afghanistan became a buffer state in the "Great Game (The Great Game)" between British India (British Raj) and the Russian Empire. Following the 1919 Anglo-Afghan War (Third Anglo-Afghan War), King Amanullah (Amanullah Khan) and King Mohammed Zahir Shah (Mohammed Zahir Shah) attempted modernization of the country. A series of coups in the 1970s was followed by a Soviet invasion and a series of civil wars (War in Afghanistan (1978–present)) that devastated much of the country.
