Ethnic groups in Afghanistan

Although the name “Afghan” is linked with the ethnic group known as the “Pashtun,” it has now come to represent the national identity of those who call Afghanistan home.

Afghanistan’s national culture is diverse, and there are significant overlaps between the numerous ethnic groups and no distinct boundaries between them.[4] Furthermore, ethnic groupings are not racially uniform. The many ethnic groups in Afghanistan have assimilated customs and holidays from one another and have a common culture. For instance, many ethnic groups in Afghanistan observe Nauruz as their New Year’s festivity.

The majority of Afghan society is tribal and multiethnic. There are several ethnolinguistic groups represented in the population of the nation, including the Pashtun, Tajik, Hazara, Uzbek, Aimaq, Turkmen, Baloch, Pashai, Nuristani, Kurds, Gujjar, Arab, Brahui, Qizilbash, Pamiri, Kyrgyz, Sadat, and others. They together make up the Afghan people.
