    Cant help it.

    wrong geographical expressions created some decades ago.

    Afghans so far has refused to accept Durand line.

    as name suggests drawn and forced by British on Afghans.

    even Pakistan trained Taliban also will find it very difficult to accept.

      And once again, 'em.

      They don't get to choose.
      Any man can hold his place when the bands play and women throw flowers; it is when the enemy presses close and metal shears through the ranks that one can acertain which are soldiers, and which are not.

        Modern definitions of South Asia are consistent in including Afghanistan, India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Bhutan and Maldives as the constituent countries.[18][19][20][21][22][23]Myanmar is included by some scholars in South Asia, but in Southeast Asia by others.[15][24] Some do not include Afghanistan,[15] others question whether Afghanistan should be considered a part of South Asia or the Middle East.[25][26]

        The current territories of Bangladesh, India, and Pakistan, which were the core of the British Empire from 1857 to 1947, form the central region of South Asia, in addition to Afghanistan,[18][19][20][21][22][23]which was a British protectorate until 1919, after the Afghans lost to the British in the Second Anglo-Afghan war. The mountain countries ofNepal and Bhutan, and the island countries of Sri Lanka and Maldivesare generally included as well. Myanmar (formerly Burma) is often added, and by various deviating definitions based on often substantially different reasons, the British Indian Ocean Territory and the Tibet Autonomous Region are included as well.[13][27][28][29][30][31][32][33][34]

        The common concept of South Asia is largely inherited from the administrative boundaries of the British Raj,[35] with several exceptions. The Aden Colony, British Somaliland and Singapore, though administered at various times under the Raj, have not been proposed as any part of South Asia.[36] Additionally Burma was administered as part of the Raj until 1937, but is now considered a part of Southeast Asia and is a member state of ASEAN. The 562 princely states that were protected by but not directly ruled by the Raj became administrative parts of South Asia upon joining Union of India orDominion of Pakistan.[37][38][39]Geopolitically, it had formed the whole territory of Greater India,[24][40]

        The South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC), a contiguous block of countries, started in 1985 with seven countries Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, the Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka and added Afghanistan as an eighth member in 2007.[41][42]China and Myanmar have also applied for the status of full members of SAARC.[43][44] This bloc of countries include two independent countries that were not part of the British Raj Nepal, and Bhutan. Afghanistan was a British protectorate from 1878 until 1919, after the Afghans lost to the British in the Second Anglo-Afghan war. The World Factbook, based on geo-politics, people, and economy defines South Asia as comprising Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, British Indian Ocean Territory, India, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka.[45] TheSouth Asia Free Trade Agreement incorporated Afghanistan in 2011, and the World Bank grouping of countries in the region also includes all eight members comprising South Asia and SAARC as well,[46][47] and the same goes for the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF).[

        this to further clear my reasoning.
