One is in Persian which is updated frequently and the other is in Persian (Cyrillic). Additionally, the English page is still running and has a vast amount of information on Tajiks and Persians.

Tajiks left their tribal lifestyle 4000 years ago and settled in villages and cities and because of this we have no tribes today like the Pashtuns. Furmuli, Panjshiri, Baraki, and Andarabi are all geographical and regional identities. Tajiks are found in every province of Afghanistan and the south is indeed populated with many Tajiks. Tajiks make up 20-30% of Kandahar, 10-25% of Helmand, 50% of Gardez, 30-45% of Nangarhar...etc

Map of ethnicity in Afghanistan

Most of them are still Persian speakers especially the shia ones because they were isolated by the Pashtun sunni population.

The Tajiks of Kandahar are Shia and very close with Iran and Persian speakers in Quetta. Their current leader is Ayatullah Asef Mohseni.

Nangarhar still has Persian speaking Tajiks and in the last elections all of them supported Dr. Abdullah. however some Tajik communities in Laghman and Paktia have become Pashtunized. one particular group is the Rustamkhels of Laghman. there are even evidence that Khalilzad is a Tajik from Laghman because his distant relative was Engineer Osman Landi, a Laghmani Tajik activist.

in Paktia Gardez still has a big community of Persian-speakers.

There are two kinds of Aimaqs. Uzbek Aimaqs who live in Faryab and Jowzjan and Chahar Aimaq. The Chahar Aimaq which live in Ghor, Badghis, Herat, Khorasan province (Iran) and Sar-i-pul are definitely Tajik and when you ask them what ethnic group they are from they will answer by saying they are Tajik not Aimaq.

These are anti-tajik policies that are meant to separate us. today they have even made new categories like Pamiri, Kabuli, and Panjshiri to bring the percentage of Tajiks more down than before

When Aimaqs do not consider themselves Hazara, why should others consider them? There are Hazara Sunnis in Central Afghanistan but they refer to themselves as Hazara not Aimaq. Even their physical appearances are different. Aimaqs have Iranic and Mediterranean features while Hazaras have Mongolic features.

What are actually the origins of the Aimaq people, are they like the remmanents of the Ancient Ghorid people, i haVE also indeed heard that the Aimaq are hazara, put i dont agree with this, others also consider them to be turkic,and say they also have mongolian looks ??? other theories i have heard that the Taimani Aimaq are like Pushtun Kakar inblood persian in language whats you arguement to this ???

But specifically i am intewrsted in the Aimaq people what is there origins is it possible they are even a seprate Iranian ethnic group seprate to Tajiks???

About the Tajiks of Kandahar and southern Afghanistan in other words they are similar stock to Heratis, siestanis, and Farahis? ??? ?

The origins of the Aimaqs are unknown but since the majority of them are from Ghor they might be the descendants of the Shansabanis/Ghurids.

how can we consider them a different ethnic group from the Tajiks when they are Iranic and Persian in culture.

Tajiks in Kandahar are very close with Ghaznavis, Helmandis, Heratis, and Nimroozis. They have a very unique southern dialect and are strong supporters of Persian Nationalism. In the Loy Jirga the first person to defend the term "Daneshgah" was Asef Moseni, the leader of the Kandahari Tajiks.

woowww fair enough. Its good to know that they arent assimilated to the Pushtun tribal culture and they retained there culture. In my view i think that an institution should be set up for the Tajiks of Afghanistan, to promote cultrual awarness and the understanding to cohesion. And also to promote contacts with Tajiks all across afghnaistan between Tajiks of Farah to Tajiks of Khowst and so on. But also to know the conditions that they are living in in terms of wether there is social discrimination occuring etc....
Is there any such institions currently set up in Afghanistan ??? ?

whats your opinionss? ???

There is lot of confusion regarding who is hazara,the confusion has been created by pashtun rulers to divide and rule other nathionalities.Some hazaras think that sunni and ismaili hazaras are attached with non-hazara tribes like tajiks,aimaq,and only the shias are counted as hazaras.

The Aimaks belong to the Non-Pashtun Kuchi groups and are splitted into two branches of races. One is Iranic and the other is Turko-Mongolian. The Hazara Aimaks are ''mongolic'' with Tajik elements and belong to the Hazaras of Bamian, while Jamshedis and Taimuris are of Iranic-Tajik stock. There is another group called Taimani. It is said, that a certain Taiman who was of Kakar tribe from south-east Punjab moved to Khorasan when the political situation changed in the 15th century. He and 12 Kakar ''Pashtun'' families moved to Ghor with Khorasanian cafravans from Hindustan. They became soon assimilated by the Persian population of Ghor who killed their Kakar Pashtun identity and language. To remember their original background this Persian-Tajik tribe called themself after their ''sarban'', caravan-leader..Taiman.
