Reclaiming the Past

The Tawarikh-i Hafiz Rahmat Khani and Pashtun Historiography

(p.211) 7 Reclaiming the Past
Afghan History Through Afghan Eyes

Robert Nichols

Oxford University Press

By way of analysis of a 1971 Introduction (Dibacha) to the eighteenth-century Tawarikh-i Hafiz Rahmat Khani written by the Director of the University of Peshawar’s Pashto Academy, in Chapter 7 Robert Nichols thus examines the treatment of the Afghan past in a Pakistani context of ethnic and regional nationalism that, unlike in Afghanistan, was marginalized by the state. The chapter forms a very rare case study of a Pashto language historical work to assess the historical self-perceptions of Pashtuns between Pakistan and Afghanistan.

Keywords:   Afghanistan, Pakistan, History, Memory, Pashto, South Asia, Central Asia, Historiography, History-writing, Hafiz Rahmat Khan
