An extensive country of Asia ... between Persia and the Indies, and in the other direction between the Hindu Kush and the Indian Ocean.
It formerly included the Persian provinces of Khorassan and Kohistan, together with Herat, Beluchistan, Cashmere, and Sinde, and a considerable part of the Punjab. Its principal cities are Kabul, the capital, Ghuznee, Peshawer, and Kandahar

It is widely acknowledged that the terms "Pashtun" and Afghan are synonyms
