It would be the biggest farce and disgrace if Afghanistan were allowed to compete in the Olympics. The trash running the country won't even allow girls access to education - let alone sport.

But with the crooked, corrupt Olympic movement, nothing would shock me.

Afghanistan were allowed to compete in the Olympics.

I don't know, it could be an interesting novelty for other countries' players to compete again a team of what appear to be floating bedsheets.

But Olympics is not Pashtun culture, so Pashtun culture is not guaranteed participation in Olympics culture

Pashtun culture can go their own way, but then, their participation in the Olympics is not guaranteed since the Olympics is Greek/Western culture
