I was thinking the whole night how we can solve the fascist Pashtun policy toward our cultural heritage and language. After long thinking and examine the situation from every point of view (took me 4 hours and 5 pages) I came to the conclussion to rename Persian in Afghanistan from ''Dari'' to Tajiki. Don´t get upset. First, just listen and than you can decide if you are a pro- or con-.
Why Tajiki? The answer is very easy. We are not PASHTUNS, who speak PASHTU and not HAZARAS, who speak a dialect called HAZARAGI, which is, and as long we accept the term ''Dari'', it will remain in the eye of Pashtunists an own independant branch of ''Dari'', UZBAKS speak UZBAKI, TURKMENS speak Turkmeni, NURISTANIS speak Nuristani, Balochs speak Balochi or Iranians (by citizen) to call it Irani etc. Of course, the term Dari is drived from Darbar, court, but many people do not know the reason behind this word ''Dari'' and they are not related with the history of the language and that is the point Pashtunists use it for their own goals. Remember, majority of Afghanistani people are illiterate. Because of the only short translation and only mentioning the short form of Darbari->Dari and rejecting ''Parsi'', it looks like it is an own language, the goal of Pashtunists. We, the great sons of Khorasan, the great ''Tajiks'' are the only people whose language is not connected to our name. Why? Because we are the only real threat to Pashtuns and Pashtu and ''Awghanistan´s Unity''. We are the only real victim to their policy. Why should we accept such half words like ''Dari'' or the wrong assumptation ''Zaban-i Afghani''? ''Afghani'' is Pashtu as Afghan is a Pashtun. Why should Pashtuns call their language as Pashtu as an excuse because mio. of ''Pashtuns'' live in Pakistan but Tajiks have to call their language ''Dari'' or accept the wrong name ''Zaban-i Afghani'' because of ethnical and political reasons that go beyond Awghanistan´s borders? My recommendation is to force the government to change ''Dari'' to Tajiki, since we are TAJIKS like Pashtuns speak PASHTU or Nuristani do Nuristani etc. Once, we changed it to Tajiki, we can decide ourself what our language is, where it came from, who it´s speakers are and to which civilisation and history it belongs to. Once we succed it, there won´t be any problems to use for it also words like Palavi, Farsi, Parsi ...and it will be respected automatically as a dialect, not even a branch, of Persian spoken in Uzbekistan, Iran, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Pakistan, Kashmir, Kyrgystan, Afghanistan and India. In addition, we can also use the term ''Dari'' in it´s correct context to descripe our language. Not as ''Dari'' but as ''Parsi-ye Darbari'' (Persian of the Court - Farsi-ye Darbar), shortend as ''Pari(y)'' - from Parsi and Darbar - meaning ''Language of Heaven''. The last name we can support by a Hadith where Persian is called as the language of Heaven and the language as whole can be explained and defended by scholaric works on Persian language, like that of Richard´Frye:
‘If learning were suspended at the highest parts of heaven the Iranians would attain it.’ (click on the deliverance)
That would also make clear, that Persian is not the language of ''Afghan Persians'', but of Tajiks, Hazaras and smaller minorities and Pashtuns are it´s servants. Such a process would even diminish and destroy the fake claim of Pashtuns Pashtu beeing spoken by 50% and we would even have a better linguistical data about the ''ethnical composition'' because Tajiks speak Tajiki, Hazaras speak Hazaragi etc. If we reach our (in that case my goal) it would be possible and very easy to count all the different dialects, from Kurdistan to India as ''Parsi-ye Darbari'' or just as ''Parsi'' or ''Palavi'' (which actually means Parthian, but since Tajiks have Parthian ancestory, it would be legal). With such a step, it would be the greatest lose for Pashtuns they have faced in Awghanistan. I hope, many User from all part of the world, please, invite also many Tajikistanis and Iranians from other places to us, will give their opinions and support me.
Ps: it would be interesting if I get positive or negative reputation for this topic. Please vote. It´s just a test for myself.
The following should answer your further questions:
Our war in Afghanistan and movement for a partition from Barbarians should start on the basis of language´s name changing. We can´t claim for something when everyone´s language is called after it´s speakers´ name but only Tajiks speaks ''Dari''. We can get much more independance, culturally, political and ethnical, when we make clear, we are Tajiks and we speak Tajiki, as Tajiks of Tajikistan speak and call it as Tajiki, too. We have to go step by step. From Afghan, to Tajik, from Tajik to Khorasani and Persian. From Dari to Tajiki, from Tajiki to Parsi, Palavi, Parsi-ye Darbari etc. We can be only in such steps succesfully. We need to educate slowly but surely our people´s mind, make them clear about their history, identity and culture. It won´t take us somewhere when we call ourself from one day to the next Persians and our language as Persian, which actually is already known among non-Pashtuns as Farsi. The people would do not take us serious and turn their back to us and with Pashtunist manipulations they would call us as ''foreigners'', ''sell-outs'' or ''Iran´s agents''. There is not even a single Tajik who use the word ''Dari''. We have to work politically and culturally and use one of them there where we think we need it. The idea about beeing Persian and speaking Persian won´t be forgotten. That will be the last and ultimate aim. Everyone who speaks Farsi and have an ancestory closely related with Irano-Khorasanian history and civilisation, he is a Persian and a Persianspeaker. We have to face modern policies, current situation of Persian language created by Pashtunists (see above: ''Zaban-i Afghani'' etc.) and deal with them in a very radical way but without spitting and punshing directly into their faces. Every step need to made slowly but with certainty. Ethnification of ''Dari'' to Tajiki and later to Parsi is the aim.
I hope, now you understand it. My words above was for sure not clearly mind-tangile and thus my thought was not really exact. But now, you guys should understand it. Believe me, I had a very long and deep discussion with myself and I came to the conclussion that at current view it´s the best solution we could do to reach our ultimate goal which is unification of all Persianspeakers and building a strong nation, boosting the partition of Awghanistan and getting a serious nation in CA and possibly a bit mighty. All for the sake of all Tajik and Persianspeaking mothers and their ancestors who bear sons and daughters but suffer more than anyone when their children die.
