If a person from Pakistan is called Pakistani, isn't a person from Afghanistan called Afghani ?

Its so simple and logical...the Greeks just don't get it.

Update:

Zack/Rainman...is that your PROOF ? the spellchecker ? I laugh at such petty insolence ! lollolol

Update 2:

Rainman/Zack, then prove me wrong, with proof...not my logic or your logic.

Update 3:

_______________________________Al-Mahdi...you seem knowledgeable...so it IS Afghani, right ? Not Afghan ?

Update 4:

Susan, you don't even speak Afghani...Don't you speak Dari and Greek ?

Sima, sorry :) Salaam alaikum warahmatullah wabarakatuh

Update 5:

_______________________Swati, thanks for clarifying that, you are a CHAMPION ! Rainman, sit down.

    because istan (comes from ustan) means the land of. And Afghanistan it means the land of the Afghans , and Afghans are a race of people, so you just refer to them by their heritage which is Afghani.

    But for Pakistan the case is different. Pak means clean/pure. So Pakistan means the land of clean/purity. So you can't say a **** because it would literally mean a pure person. where as afghan would refer to the heritage and race of someone from Afghanistan (the land of afghans) you say Pakistani for someone from Pakistan meaning (some one from the land of pure)

    hope this helps
