Afghani was one of the early Muslim political reformers during the latter half of the 19th century, and has undoubtedly been one of the most influential Muslim political thinkers.

Afghani favored the preaching of an Islamic messianism promising the faithful earthly salvation and the establishment of a reign of prosperity and justice.

Afghani’s call for the independence of individual Muslim nations has been a key factor in the development of the so-called “Islamic nationalism” and influenced such Muslim figures as Muhammad Iqbal, Muhammad Ali Jinnah and Kalam Azad in the subcontinent of India and Namik Kemal, Said Nursi and Mehmet Akif Ersoy in the Ottoman Turkey.

 Never Trust Anyone Who Says "Afghani" Timothy Noah   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
"Afghani" is an apparent conflation of "Afghan" with "Pakistani" and reflects the general tendency to confuse Afghanistan with Pakistan.

 Politics of the Afghani
Another factor in the fall of the price of the Afghani is the fact that during the long internal conflict in the country, depending on their affiliations with Russia and Iran, many war lords printed their own money which is similar in all features, but with minor differences in markings.

 Boston.com / A&E / Theater/Arts / Delightful 'Afghani' needs more detail
"The Canny Afghani" sketches out real-life events -- the play is mostly autobiographical -- that lead members of Ada's family to leave Afghanistan in 1979, travel to Pakistan and later to India, then ultimately settle in North America.
News clippings taped to panels at the back of the stage are somewhat deceptive, suggesting that the performance will be about current events when its family-based themes are more universal than that.
Were Ada to choose to be as much of a character as a conduit for exposition, the journey within "The Canny Afghani" would be greatly enriched.
