A line[Durrand line] of hatred that raised a wall between the two brothers -Hamid Karzai
The men of Kábul and Khilj also went home; and whenever they were questioned about the Musulmáns of the Kohistán (the mountains), and how matters stood there, they said, "Don't call it Kohistán, but Afghánistán; for there is nothing there but Afgháns and disturbances." Thus it is clear that for this reason the people of the country call their home in their own language Afghánistán, and themselves Afgháns. The people of India call them Patán; but the reason for this is not known. But it occurs to me, that when, under the rule of Muhammadan sovereigns, Musulmáns first came to the city of Patná, and dwelt there, the people of India (for that reason) called them Patáns—but God knows!

@ khostai .
afghanistan has got 30 + plus war still going on , when people run for their lifes , its obvious that there can be no science , economy , progress .
war dont faciliate such acts , especially not a civil war fought by the bottom of the intellectual spectrum .
all our engeneers , doctors , professionals fled , were killed or are too old .
besides real scientific progress needs money , due to the war we lost two generations , people who had not the possibility to have access to education .
and i didnt mentioned the intenional forced ignorance upon us , which was a main goal of the pakis and iranians and all our other enemies .
people and countries with leaders and thinkers dont fall prey to foreign intervention, and dont become play balls for others .
BUT , IN AFGHANISTAN people dont make fool out of theirselfes , by claiming things which are not true .
and they dont try to sell it to the population as a success and a proof of their superiority .
and considering that those people should know it better is really tragic .
pakistan is not in a 30+ plus war recieved billions , has got universities and schools , and the best to show off are claims of inventions which dont exist , to impress the population ???
like geo tv the barret guy who claims that pakistan will be in 5 years on the moon and the world leading super power ????
one thing is blind and stupid nationalism , the other thing is loosing touch with reality .
