Its stupid to make pashto romanized..
I already hate how tajiks use the russian letters for their writings.. Just looking at it makes me mad...
As someone said pashto is pashto.. Deal with it

If there is a promblem using foreign alphabets for Pashto, why simply not invent an own alphabet that would be adapted?

By the way the Arabic and Roman alphabets both derive from the same one.
The good of the Arabic one is for sure that it is more easy for a Pashtun to learn afterwards Arabic and read the Quran in original. The bad may be problematics with the vowls. But roman alphabet is neither perfect as it doesn't have enough letters for Pashto, no?
So You would have these ugly mofified letters, its better having You own alphabet on this point or its possible to use those alphabets that were spread in acient times in the region like bactrian, sogdian , avestic scripts, or perhaps as Toramana said Kharoshthi?
May I ask how many exact sound does Pashto have?


Ա՜խ, ընկել եմ քար ու քարափ,
Իմ սրբություն, ե՛տ արի, ե՛տ,

Ես ծովակ եմ առանց կարապ,
Իմ էություն, ե՛տ արի, ե՛տ:

Ես անտառ եմ առանց եղնիկ
Իմ վեհություն, ե՛տ արի, ե՛տ:

ok first it will be changing the alphabet.. next thing you know u mught wanna change the Quran... just like other religions that rewrite their holy book ur gonna wanna do that too cuz "times have changed" right?
the reason i say its stupid because.. just cuz its hard for you to learn it that way doesnt mean the whole country has to change something
