Description

The Kushans, like all of the nomads, came from Xinjiang or points north, settled for a time in Transoxiana, then went conquering to the east into Afghanistan and Pakistan. There they built a merchant economy with liberal features such as religious toleration. Then came the Kidarites, then the Shahis, then the Muslims.

Northwest Frontier Province was renamed Khyber Pakhtunwa in 2010.
