Pashtuns

Pashtuns (some pronounce it as Pakhtuns), known historically as ethnic Afghans and in the Indian subcontinent as Pathans, are people that form one ethnic group, made up of approximately 50 million individuals living in Afghanistan and Pakistan as well as in certain major cities of India and western parts of Iran. The Pashtuns (Pash-tunes) usually speak their native Pashto language but many of them also use Urdu, Hindi, Persian, English, and other languages of the region for their daily communication purposes. The word Pathan is usually applied to individuals who reside outside their native land and have mixed with the South Asian culture.
