actually it is good news, good to know that tajiks are less religious. being religious means being conservative, inflexible, limited; having less level of intelligence, self-esteem, independence, self-motivation; suspicious to other faiths, races and cultures.

persian version of islam always was more liberal, open and sophisticated than original arabic one. advanced societies are always complex and sophisticated with great level of flexibility. persian people couldn't adopt this arabic religion in its original primitive form. they have changed it and they made it suitable for people who live in civilized cities and farms, not in camps in deserts.

Pashtuns with their specific disposition toward radical forms of islam can eventually become big losers of this battle between them and more civilized neighbors, Persians to the north and Indo-Ayans to the South.

However, i wouldn't accuse pashtun people for all their awkwardnesses. It's geography first of all - they live in remote mountain places. it's lack of centers of pashtun civilizations, big cities with liberal and relatively free atmosphere for people to create symbols of pashtun culture like sophisticated literature, art and music.

if i would be a pashtun, i would grieve that my people are not able to create and develop their own aryan pashtun culture and they are  followers of other people's culture, arabic one.

i remember a couple of active members at the beginning, one from Tajikistan and one from Iran who i suspect were dumped from here for some reasons. i also suspected at that time that many posts were constantly removed as so many people complained about that.

an internet forum should have minimal restrictions, maximum freedom of speech, inclusion of wide range of people with diverse ideology. the admins try to make this forum absolutely narrow-minded and very nationalistic. Some time you feel too much hatred toward other ethnic groups like Pashtuns or Uzbaks. I am sure this strategy is absolutely wrong.

the admins has killed this forum, unfortunately.
the website hasn't become what many expected.
the forum is almost dead now, no doubt.

The idea is very sensible, but you urgently need to modify your map before people have seen it.

- first you forgotten to label Baluchestan area.

- The so-called "Soghd" province never have been known as "Soghd" in history. Historical core Soghd is Samarqand and Bokhara area - far away to north. The region was known as Tokharistan in medieval Persian sources so call it either Tokharistan or "Eastern Bactria". remember that there is already a "Soghd" province in Nothern Tajikistan with Khojand city as capital.

- Call the province around Mazr-e-Sharif as "Central Bactria" or just "Bactria".

- Name the province around Herat just "Herat", or, maybe, "Arya".

- The name "Kushan" for Hazarajat looks good, I think, and our hazara brothers should be happy with that.

- and don't forget to label all areas, mate.

in general, good start and well done.
Zenda bashed,

Dear Khurasanzad,

I am talking about very ancient times when European-like, Indoeuropean-speaking people somehow became Aryans (indo-iranians),  became different from all other indoeuropeans (germans, balto-slavs, italic people, keltic people etc).  Scientists believe that relatively primitive but aggressive european nomadic migrants from the north (Eastern Europe) - our ancestors - mixed with highly advanced indigenous people in Margiana-Bactria archeological complex that gave rise to the Aryan people. The european language of invaders  became dominant but changed under the influence of the substrate langauge - it became different from other european langauges, it became Aryan or proto-Indo-Iranian language. Scientists believe that the substrate language was burushaski.

my village is located in that area - village Sorkh ("Red village", original Soghdian name was "Sour" - "salty place") - not too far from Varukh enclave, about 25 km. everything in the article is true.  there was a war and people in my village were invoved too. a number of people were killed in both sides, as i know.

the reasons are many. one of them is demography. tajiks have had much higher birth rate than kyrgyz people. kyrgyz people culturally are closely related to indigenous people of Siberia and to some extent to kazakh people with minimal influence of Persian and Muslim cultures.
demographically more dynamic tajiks first pushed out kyrgyz population of tajikistan itself making them emigrate to kyrgyzstan. after that tajiks started renting agricultural lands in neighboring areas in Kyrgystan, and then people started buying homes, lands and apartments, especially in Batken city (Soghdian name "Badkand", "windy lace"?). What is happening now is kyrgyz people are leaving Batken province of Kyrgyzstan and moving to the more prosperous  north parts of the country.  Tajiks are becoming dominant in parts of the south.

welcome dear.

so, it's very interesting that the culture of Kashmir is very similar to the culture of Tajikistan, btw. it looks like we all were burushaki-speaking race long time ago, before aryan invasion, and retained much of that ancient culture intact despite to switching to indo-iranian languages... maybe, not...

tell us about Kashmir, about the identity of Kashmiri people and why these people want an independent state and don't want to be neither Indian nor Pakistani,

for older tajikistani academics the former soviet union is still a closed universe and the capital of russia moscow is still the center of universe with russians to be the most advansed nation of the world.
they naturally cannot see anything further than moscow and they look into their own nation by russian eyes - a second-rate nation not able to create anything worth in science and technology.
it's sad.

Dear Arya-Zadah-e gerami:

Thank you very much for your prompt response. Answering back to your question, my response is that we have wonderful IT specialists in Tajikistan. I personally know some of them and they are great asset to our country, yet there is one big problem. They don't have support of Tajikistan's Academy of Science. I don't know why scientists in our Academy, particularly IT specialists, are islanders instead of realizing the power of team work. I am looking forward that this behavior will change and we will put team work and cooperation over competition. Perhaps, it's due to our selfishness and pride that "I do it myself" thing. I hope I am wrong in my last conclusion.

As for Russian IT specialists, they are very smart guys. But, strange that we tend to appreciate other nations' assistance more than our own people. Some of our traditional thinking and approaches should change in a positive way and meet modernity, if we want to prosper.

Dear Ahangar Jan,

This is great news... Thank you Aryazadah - you are indeed a dedicated follower of developments in the Tajik-Iranic world.

 I admire that dedication and am thankful that you shared the good news with the rest of us.

Hopefully with more technology - the talented scientists of Tajikistan and their realization that their future lies in the Iranic world will create more solutions to bring our peoples together.

I am sure an equivalent software can be developed which would convert Perso-Arabic script Persian into Perso-Latin script - which will have some good uses.

Thank you for the link, dear Pors Jon (Pars jan :)),

i do not have that software because it looks like people still are working on it.
good news here is the official status of this work.
strange thing here is the persons who work with it - two russian guys based in tajikistan. just wondering that why russians. what about IT specialists among tajiks living in Tajikistan? do they exist?
