Massive thanks to Mehdi Shaheen, Omid Bidar, Jawad Sadey Lakoo, Ali Fitrat, Muhammad Reza Wakil, Qadir Nayel, Khadim Rizai, Hasan Reza Changezi, Abbas Changezi and of course John Gulzari and Ishaq Muhammadi who showered me with thousands of Hazaragi Words, which is fantastic. Without your honest contributions, the Hazagari Alphabet Book for Beginner Class and Hazaragi Dictionary wouldn’t have been possible to think or materialize.
Now, around ten thousand Hazaragi words are with me and I’ve put my heart and soul to produce a Hazagari Alphabet Book for Beginner Class and two dictionaries;
- Hazaragi into English
- English into Hazaragi
50 percent of “Hazagari Alphabet Book for Beginner Class” have been completed and only 10 percent of “Hazaragi into English Dictionary” have so far been completed. Both projects are time taking and I need friends to help me with the designing of the books especially alphabet book.
I’m trying my best to include all Hazaragi words being used in Hazara Jat in both books BUT I need cooperation of all Hazaras especially those belong to Dai Mirdad, Dai Zingi, Behsud, Malistan and Yakawlang areas.
With just over 82 percent of the results of the votes announced by the Independent Election Commission of Afghanistan (IEC) last Thursday, no presidential candidate seems to be in a clear position to announce victory. According to IEC Dr Abdullah has secured 43.8 percent (2,564,284) votes and he is leading Dr Ashraf Ghani from 10.9 percent (636,131) votes.
Around 81-100 percent of the election results of 20 provinces have been counted and 20-39 percent election results of 13 provinces are yet to be announced including the 70 percent election results of the Ghazi province.
Out of seven million ballots, 5,857,442 votes have been counted. 746 complaints ruled by Electoral Complaints Commission may likely affect closer to half a million votes. Dr Abdullah’s 80,000 votes from Herat City have been quarantined for suspected fraud and now nearly 17.5 percent of the votes are left to be announced which means no candidate seems likely win in the first round of the elections with simple majority votes — was predicted on the previous column on this newspaper on 5th of April 2014.
Many suggest that Dr Abdullah may likely bag around 45 percent of the votes, while his political rival Dr Ashraf Ghani will hopefully get about 35 percent of the total votes.
