Pashto (also called Pashtu, Pushtu, Pushto, Pakhto, Afghan, and other variations) is the native language of the Pashtun people who live in parts of Afghanistan, Pakistan, and India. It is a member of the Eastern Iranian branch of the Indo-European languages. The earliest records of Pashto writings date from the sixteenth century. In 1936, Pashto became the national language of Afghanistan. Today, it continues to be one of the country's official languages, along with Dari. Pashto is also used as the working language in local parliaments in some provinces of Pakistan.
