 Kabul Press: Abdali: Figure of Controvercy
Nadir Shah was known to be a child molester and it was no surprise that he took 12-year old Ahmad Khan under his wing and the two had a very close physical relationship.
So Ahmad Shah was solely for the Pashtun tribes and had virtually nothing to do with the non-Pashtuns, except for oppressing them, stealing their land, etc. He held the title of "King of the Afghans" not "King of Afghanistan" because at that time, "Afghanistan" did not indicate a state but instead territories.
It is because of Ahmad Shah and his gang of marauders who crushed the indigenous people of the regions—the Marathas and the Mughuls—that the entire subcontinent of India including today's Afghanistan was colonized by the British for the 19th century and well into the 20 th century.
