Yeah there is a relation! Hazaras are not pure Mongols or pure Turks. No Turk or Mongol tribe is pure nowadays, they are all a mixture of both with European mixes.  Hazara origin and background has been made confusing by some writers, but its pretty straight forward. Buddha's of Bamiyan were obviously built by ancient Bamiyanian people. Bamiyan was a major city located on the famous Silk Road so the city was full of different people and cultures. Their empires were made of many different tribes. Such as the Great Kushans. In fact Bamiyanian people built the Buddha's during Kushanian empire. Bamiyan was a center of Buddhism and a place where many cultures and people met.

Hazara isn't one single tribe. Its a confederation of many tribes. Altaic tribes such as Baghcheri, Yeuzderi, Uqi, Geri, Quli, Khosha and etc are very ancient and they are all part of Hazara unity. So all tribes are one people now, even the new ones, such as the Tatars of Northern Afghanistan, Naimans(who are also known as Shekh-Ali, Abaka, Orta Balaaq and etc), Tulai Khaani, Qul Bars, Nekudaries and etc. I wish I had time to discuss this in detail with you guys, but I got mid-semester exams comin up so ye! Hope I was clear in my explanation Cryptic.
 
This is completely false.  The Bamian Buddhas were built during the Ephtalite period.  Again where are you getting your sources from?

This is what Kushan royalty looked like:
 

This is a coin created under the Kushan ruler Kujula Kadphises
 
Here is another coin by Vima Kadphises, another Kushan Ruler:

Chingis Khan was a Borjigin. And there are thousands and thousands of them in Besud, Hazarajat.

In Asia 1/10 person is genetically linked to Mongols lol very naughty empire.
 
We are talking about the remnants of the Kushan and Ephtalites, not the Mongolion Chengiz Khan.

I read relaible sources, not theories based on some made up assumptions mate. I get my info from different sources, but definitly not wikipedia! I talk to the great people of Bamiyan. Besides you seem to be very unreasonable when it comes to the history behind the Gaint Buddhas. I'm not saying that Ephtalites were NOT involved. They did play their part in it! But Bamiyan Buddha's were mainly built by the Bamiyanian people. People are important mate, don't just say whoever ruled were the ONLY ones who created the Buddhas. Ephtalite people are originally known as Ak Huns. They were a mixture of many people, but mainly Central Asians. Jaghury Hazaras are Ak Hun and some believe even Uyghurs were part of it. That's why Jaghuries and Uyghur people have a lot in common. The Gaint Buddha's had Mongoloid faces...and some were built Indian style. These are facts, that you cannot cross out, or keep a blind eye. If you really have a passion and care about the history of this great civilisation of mankind, I suggest you stop spending time reading sites created by careless writers who just wanna fill in the page with whatever.

1) Since Naimani did not provide the link from where he got the picture it has been deleted. I am sorry Afghanan, the post in which you quoted Naimani, where the offending picture was visible, has also been deleted.

 

2) I would urge all parties to continue the debate. Please refrain from accusations, argue against the message not the messanger.

 

The Germans also take vacations in Paris; especially during the periods they call "blitzkrieg".

If their faces were destroyed, how do you prove it?
I can't read Urdu, but try me. If I have difficulty, I will ask other members for help.

By the way, are you the same person who started the ''Hazara and pan-Turk'' thread one and half years ago? or are there many Hazara people in Australia?

Going by just a face of a Buddha is very misleading.  There were busts of Apollo and Hercules  found in Afghanistan, but that doesn't mean that all Afghans looked like Apollo!  The statues were built with Hellenestic qualities, and Buddhas relative of their time, which was during the Ephtalite period, and not the Kushan period, which resembled these:
 
 
"The human head usually has appears with a perfect oval face, regular features, with almond-shaped and slightly protruding eyes, with gentle arching eyebrows, a straight nose, and beautifully cut lips with a subtle smile. The Buddha's influence is evident in the half-closed eyes suggesting meditation. The face if often unbearded, but sometimes a mustache strikes a foreign note, most likely Kushan. The "usnisa" or cranial bump, a predestination the Buddha was born with, is usually seen in the form of the "chignon" a knot or a roll of hear wrapped in silk on the dome of Buddha's head. The elongated ears indicate the heavy, rich jewelry the Buddha wore. "

The Giant Buddha statues built in Bamian during the 6th century resembled those that were built in regions adjacent to it in Jalalabad and Swat:

Sallam and hello to every body. This is Ahmed Ali Shad and I am a Hazara born in quetta on July 13 1986. My english not so well so I could express my thought to you guys about this forum nor I think so deep like you people. I am happy that most of other people are intrested to know about the hazara history in afghanistan and every body is giving explaination and also critical comments. which is good. Like I said that I don't have much knowledge about the afghanistan's history and i don't believe any body here know every thing the way it used to be in afghanistan's history. I only know as I have heard from grand parents that they were residents of Gazak Thanacho/ Jaghouri, Ghazni and they lost there land in war and oppression with abdur rahman when british were supporting them to destroy Hazarajat and kill as many as they can to destabalise afghanistan. Gazak thanacho was beautifull place with all kinds of farming, livestokes and water channals. 
  
  Wars have lost and wons and hazara people have a great and unbreakable relationship with wars and adventures from past to future in wich they express thier survival guds. No one could or can beat the hazara in the field of war. All those sad times wich past on hazara and those elements who oppossed this on us were not thier bravery but the result of a great conspiracy with help of great illuminaties. I give the example of a great martyred Abdul Ali Mazari who were captured after a peace agreemant on the oath of Holy Quran by the decievers of Quran Wich is been happening from the past.
 
Finally once again i want to thank every non hazara who post thier comments in this forum.
for any question on my posted comment please ask as reply i will be glad to answer.
