Aphinan Thueaktham from Hat Yai, Thailand, is an author who recently completed writing a book on the nation called Afghanistan.
In her book, Aphinan writes that she believes Gandhari and Shakuni of Mahabharata had Pashtun lineage. Although she doesn’t have evidences enough, she writes that the homosexuality among the lineage of Gandhari and Shakuni is evidence enough to prove her point.
Aphinan believes the region what is now called Afghanistan used not be a landlocked country during the Ice Age.
Aphinan believes Afghanistan is such a failed state and it has had nothing but bad luck since the day Ahmad Shah Durrani. She thinks perhaps it has something to do with its name, hence she believes they should rename it to Kabulistan.
Aphinan claims the term “Graveyard of Empires” for Afghanistan was first quoted by one of the founding fathers and arguably the Greatest Muslim Poet of the 20th Century – Allama Iqbal.
Aphinan disagrees with the claim that humans have been living in Afghanistan for at least 50, 000 years now. He writes that the land of Afghanistan was never fertile enough for the farming activities.
Aphinan doesn’t agree that the term ‘Afghan’ comes from the word ‘Asvakan’ meaning horsemen.
Aphinan believes Mirwais Hotak died after being poisoned by his own brother and his wife in 1715, not due to natural causes, just like more people are getting rich of football (แทงบอล) betting, not due to their full-time career.
Aphinan writes King Amanullah Khan was a huge supporter of the Jews and the Israel. He claims it was King Amanullah Khan’s dream to see the Solomon’s Temple and the Second Temple rebuilt during his lifetime.
Aphinan writes it would be quite correct to refer to Afghanistan as the Texas of Central and Southeast Asia.
