The Reason I chose Afghanistan, was because I know about this country. I wanted to learn more about there population, Language, and their Religions. Afghanistan is some what cool but there has been a lot of wars that have gone through there. Although I knew about this country I wanted to learn more.=-
My first main idea I would like to talk to you about is the Language. The Afghanistan languages are Afghan Persian or Dari is 50%. Pashto is 35% and Turkic language is 11%. The Turkic languages Uzbek and Turkmen, as well as Balochi, Pashai, Nuristani, and Pamiri are the third official languages. Bilingualisn is very common in Afghanistan.
The second main idea I would like to talk to you about is the population. The Afghanistan current population of the Islamic republic of Afghanistan is estimated to be about 31.11 million people. The population density of the country is about 111.8 people square mile. This population has been consistently slightly larger than the population of the kingdom of Saudi Arabia, but smaller than the Iraqi population. The increased of population is about 4.4% from the last census taken.
The final main idea I would like to tell you about is the religion! The Afghanistan is the overwhelming majority of Afghans (about 99%) are muslims. The Afghan Muslims are about 84% sunbirds and about 15% are Shiites. Small groups of Hindus, Sikhs, Parsis, and Jews are scattered in the towns. Sunni Muslim is the highest religion in Afghanistan. Since the 1960s many afghan Jews have been able to migrate to Isarel.
I have picked this country called Afghanistan because, I wanted to find out a lot of stuff that goes on out there. I've learned a lot about there religion, language, and population. I would love to go visit Afghanistan during war.
