Here you will also find a collection of articles about the Pakhtuns regarding their origins, history, culture and traditions known as the Pashtuns/Pashtoons or Pathans, are also known as Pakhtuns or Pukhtuns where they live.
The main idea for Pakhtun.com is to introduce to the world this great nation currently under siege of religious fanatics. The Pakhtuns or Pashtuns (for people having difficulty pronouncing the harsh kh' sound similar to the hebrew ch from the base of the throat), are also Afghans. The Pashtun (Afghan) are native to the red shaded area of the map to the right. As you can see the Pakhtuns can be found in and originate from Afghanistan to present day north western Pakistan. In Pakistan they live mostly in the province of Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa or Khyber-Pakhtoonkhwa formally known as the North West Frontier Province. As the world has become smaller the Pukhtuns have moved out and are found to be scattered through out India and other parts of the world.
