Gul agha Icon : (03 May 2013 - 04:29 PM) Sohrab, Tajikam doesn't only consist of a forum. We have two major sections in this website. 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.

A message from a friend:

Afghan paper publishes reader's letter about language row
Text of letter to editor by Khedmatgar, entitled "As if he came to parliament from the moon", by private Afghan newspaper Arman-e Melli on 24 February

To Arman-e Melli administration,
I am one of the readers of Arman-e Melli daily newspaper. I read an article published in the daily on 3 Hut [22 February] which quoted an MP as saying he had not heard the word "Daneshgah" [University] in the past 53 years of his life. Believe me I was shocked by reading the article for two reasons:
1. The MP introduces himself as a compatriot, Muslim and well-known Afghan in his interviews with the media. Though, the word Daneshgah has a history of 1,000 years in Persian/Dari language and this word has been common and been used in poems, articles and has been spoken by the Persian/Dari speakers. Even, we can see this word in Mawlana's [Rumi's] documents, whose birthday was marked some days ago in Turkey. How is it possible for the MP, who is 53-years-old, who has not heard this word?
It would be familiar to him even if he lived in America, Asia or any other continent, or has the MP come from another planet to the Afghan parliament?
2. The MP said that the word Daneshgah was an alien word that had come from outside Afghanistan and he reacted very strongly towards its usage. Why does he not defend the rights of journalists under democratic condition and freedom of exp​ression, who gets sacked and his salary cut for using two words that are called un-Islamic?
Why does he not as a Muslim MP denounce this act and punish its perpetrators?
Why does he blame one who has used Daneshgah instead of Pohantun?
I feel pity for a brow-beaten nation that has a national delegate and defendant like this at the parliament.

It should not be a matter of whether this or that politicain has heard of the word - it should be a matter of which is the right word to use when speaking Parsi e Dari.

Ignorance of the idea of Khurasan has brought us to this pathetic state - where we are told which words to use in our own language. The best remedy for this is not to condemn the ignorant politician or which part of Afghanistan he comes from - as some IGNORANT Tajiks have been doing - but to raise our knowledge and those of our fellow Tajiks.

This act of the Ministry of Culture of Afghanistan can be a blessing if it is used to spread knwledge about the ideals of Khurasan and thus discredit the idea of Afghanistan.

well said. That guy was surely a Pashtun dog. Daneshga, a word with a root that goes back to the Sassanian era he call it as alien? A word, that has his root even in the indo-germanic languages is an alien word? That word was always used by our ancestors. From the beginning. The problem is that these dogs are decandants of neanderthales and donkeys therefore they do not know such words.
