Default Confirmed link between Pathans and Alexander's army - 08-10-2017, 08:16 PM

https://www.nature.com/ejhg/journal/...tcallback=true

Although it's limited, and there are Pashtuns without the traces, there is confirmation of a link.

If you go to figure 5, it shows that the link is to the Greece and Macedonia area (i.e. Alexander the great's birth place - he was Macedonian).

"One Pathan shared a Y-STR haplotype, that included a duplication of 10 and 13 repeat units for the DYS425 locus, with three Greek individuals and the other was separated from this cluster by a single mutation, which enabled us to estimate the TMRCA (mean 7 SD) using the Network software as between 2000 7 400 and 5000 7 1200 YBP depending upon the observed 26 or inferred mutation rates, 27 respectively. This coincides with the period of Alexander’s invasion during 327 – 323 BC. This haplotype was not observed in any other E3b1-derived Pakistani Y chromosome but was highly specific for the Balkans – the highest frequency being in Macedonia."

There has been no known Greek admixture within the last few generations, but in addition to Alexander’s armies, the possibility of admixture between the Greek slaves who were brought to this region by Xerxes around one hundred and fifty years before Alexander’s arrival, and the local population,cannot be discounted.

Why the sudden interest in being a 'B*stard'?

Stop projecting. I'm not a wannabe you.

Many pashtuns speak of being sons of Alexander's army, when their army was settling in these regions. They claim it as part of their origins. This adds credence to those claims. Of course with time things change etc, but the claims of origins from that past is not 100% inaccurate. That said, it's still a small % of the population. Limited admixture.

Kandahar was, in fact, a city made by Alexander.

So you take pride in being the rape product of Greek army?

Alexander was gay btw. Maybe this explains how bacha bazi was introduced into your culture.

Are You looking you be someone's dancing boy?

The story is Alexander got so impressed he married a local, and his army settled.

I forget the number, but he built a number of cities too.

As far as I know, the first ones to claim of being 'Greek B*stards' were and are the 'Kalash People'. I still have no idea which Pashtun Kabila you are talking about?

Go eff yourself!
Bacha Baazi/Wirke Poztob is more prevalent in the neighbouring Cultures, than it is in Pashtun Culture.
