    Discovering Afghanistan’s 1,000-year-old Jewish life

    To be honest, you would be hard pressed to find some mention of 'Pashtun' or 'Afghan' in pre-Islamic times much less a mention of some Jewish connection.

    Yes, genetically they dont have much affinity with Ashkenazi, Mizrahi or Sephardic Jews. Which are those pre-Islamic sources?

    Discovering Afghanistan’s 1,000-year-old Jewish life

    Well, anyway it's been disproved pretty much via actual historic evidence (mass migrations like such would be very unlikely not to mention logistical problems) and genetics. Only some early 20th century British writers started it.

    Discovering Afghanistan’s 1,000-year-old Jewish life

    How are Ashkenazies and Yemeni Jews being converts relevant here? Pashtuns don't have any such documented history of conversions to Judaism. And even among Jews, there are many different groups such as Sephardi, Mizrahim etc. The Jewish theory was pretty outlandish to begin with and with...

    Hindustan is not India

    Well, basically different Prakrits including Sauraseni from which it descended from as you have mentioned. But that's not what I was arguing about. And I think, in this context, it's rather pointless to delve into the deep history of the (Hindustani) language, given that most of it's...

    Pashto words in Urdu

    So the word 'بدیسی' badesi, is used for Europeans, as the book says? It also says that 'badesi maal' is referred to as 'wilayati maal' with specific reference to Europeans/British only.

    Pashto words in Urdu

    Interesting. So North-Western South Asian territories mentioned here refer to Afghanistan? Btw do Pashtuns use 'wilayati' term for Europeans/British or not?
