The way it is made it looks like 100 years old. But then the time says 2006? Definitely fake.
How is it fake? It looks quite accurate to me. The sheer amount of detail in this map.

Other more generalized maps of ethnic groups in Afghanistan run along the same lines, Pashtuns concentrated in the south, Tajiks in the north, Hazara in the center, Uzbeks and Turkmen in the far north, Baluch on the southern border, etc.

Here's another map with pretty much the same result as the one you object to, except this one was conducted by professional organizations:

There is still something wrong with the map...
Like too many unnecessary divisions of the same ethnic group. Also many of the tribes mentioned in the map don't exist.

How can you tell if it's accurate or not? You've never been to Afghanistan, and know nothing about the country.

Stick to Qadiani propaganda. You are clearly super ignorant about everything else.

I gave the persuasive reasons why I think it's accurate in the same post you partially quoted me from. It would be redundant to repeat those reasons again.

I Dont think there is a need for an Indian or Punjabi or Pakistani lecturing Afghans on demohraphics of Afghanistan. They would probably know best themselves. Lol

You assume that being from a certain country automatically makes one an authority on its demographics. The truth is demographic study is a particular discipline which requires study. This is something Afghans should realize, just because you are an Afghan doesn't make you an authority on Afghanistan. And just because someone is a non-Afghan doesn't mean he can't be an authority on Afghanistan. I am not claiming to be an authority on Afghanistan, far from it, but I am citing authoritative scholarly sources, they have much more credibility than random people on the internet claiming to be Afghans and claiming to know better than the professional sources.

Where do you think your professionel sources get their information from? From God?

Obviously their information comes from Afghans themselves, so by definition, Afghans themselves know More about themselves than outsiders.

You should read Babur e Namaah, these Hindustani Muslim have historical inferiority complex for being Indic.


ای وخته بېرته راشه يو افغان وزېږوه
نو بيا يو احمد خان يا ميروس خان وزېږوه

چې ننګ په وطن وکړئ داسي ځوان وزېږوه
نويا خو خوشحال خان يا بادشا خان وزېږوه

سپن اوشن بيرغ د ازادۍ کړي زمونږ پورته
بيا داسې يو بادشا لکه امان وزيږوه

چې جوړه کړي انګريز ته بيا غزا د ارنوۍ
يو داسې لوی غازي ميرزمان خان وزيږوه

سرو مال قربان کړي له وطن او له ناموسه
په مينه د وطن کي افغانان وزيږوه

ټپې د ازادۍ کړه بورا ته په خيالونو
اوس راشه په شعرنو کي طوفان وزيږو
