Most Eastern Afghans(Pashtuns) are descended from people who invaded those lands from the south and west and then settled there. They did probably somewhat mix with locals but those were mostly Dardic peoples, not Punjabis. I don't question your sincerity but thee types of ideas seem to be promoting a view that Pakistani and Afghan Pashtuns are somehow different peoples culturally and genetically. Which is very stupid as studies have shown that Pashtuns in both Pakistan and Afghanistan are genetically closer to each other than they are to any other ethnic group in Pakistan and Afghanistan. The same is true for culture, although that is harder to prove empirically.

Mention of Eastern Afghanistan (Kabul/Vaekereta) in the Vendidad Avesta:

"The seventh of the good lands and countries which I, Ahura Mazda, created, was Vaekereta, of the evil shadows.
Thereupon came Angra Mainyu, who is all death, and he counter-created the Pairika Knathaiti, who claves unto Keresaspa."

23. Vaźkereta, an older name of Kabul (Kāpūl: Comm. and Gr. Bd.); perhaps the Ptolemeian Bagarda in Paropanisus (Ptol. VI, 18).
24. The Pairika, in Zoroastrian mythology, symbolises idolatry (uzdes-parastih). The land of Kubul, till the Moslem invasion, belonged to the Indian civilisation and was mostly of Brahmanical and Buddhist religion. The Pairika Khnathaiti will be destroyed at the end of the world by Saoshyant, the unborn son of Zarathushtra (when all false religions vanish before the true one; Vd19.5). — Sama Keresaspa, the Garshasp of later tradition, is the type of impious heroism: he let himself be seduced to the Daeva-worship, and Zarathushtra saw him punished in hell for his contempt of Zoroastrian observances.

AVESTA: VENDIDAD (English): Fargard 1.

This and given the genetic divide between Northern and Southern Pashtuns, it is likely that they are mostly Pashtunized Dardics/Indics.

I'll tell you my experience. I don't know how many pure Kashmiris I've met, but when I was living in Islamabad, in my class there were 3 friends of mine that were the Kashmiri-Punjabi hybrids that I speak of. 2 of them were, especially for Pakistan, considerably fair skinned. 1 was a medium-light brown, but not someone you'd say "oh he's fair skinned". Their body, features, mannerisms, etc indicated they were not Pashtun, but they WERE somewhat fair skinned.

Having said that, is this a good representation? Probably not at all. It's probably horrible representation. This was a private school in Islamabad. So certainly not indicative of the average, if you will.
How would you compare of the physique of Kashmiri-punjabi with that of a Pashtun?

lol... there we go with the physique stuff again.

So with these 3 friends, 1 was fat, the other 2 were skinny. Skinny being like the rawalpindi type paindus you see. Fair skinned being like, jeez, Idk, Imran Khan level, maybe a bit fairer.

Faces didn't have the strong jawline, it was kinda roundish for the fat guy, and I guess somewhat roundish for the skinny ones. Not square, basically.

Hair, 2 of them had straight hair, 1 had slightly wavy... like barely wavy.

What else? They're tall. The fat guy is taller than me. He's probably 6'1 or 6'2''. One of the skinny is like my height, 6'. The other skinny is probably 5'10''.

These are 3 guys, dude. Not sure how useful it is for you.
