Author’s Note: This post was inspired by an event in which I participated where the majority of people were native Pashtu speakers. The event was conducted in English; had the event been in Pashtu, it would have discouraged me from attending, as, unfortunately, I cannot speak Pashtu. The fact that the event was in English allowed me to partake and mix with those ‘Afghans’ of a different ethnicity to my own without sparking any tension. So for this reason, I thought it would be interesting to write about the link between language, identity and nationhood. The role of language in the formation of identity in Afghanistan by Rabia Nasimi
