Lowgar (Pashto: لوګر) is one of the thirty-four provinces of Afghanistan. It is a located in the central zone, south-east of Kabul and the geography of the province centers on the large Logar River which enters the province through the north and leaves to the west. Its capital is Pul-i-Alam. Logar has a Pashtun majority.

 

Lowgar; The Word

Some say that lowgar is actually "Loy-Ghar" which means "big mountain" in Pashto language, references to this can be found in old history books such as the "Tarikh e Pehsawar" and the "Gazeteer of Kohat, 19th century".
 

History and Legend

It has been widely held by Pashton Khattak tribes men as well as historians of Pashtons and Afghania that Logar is the birth place of the Khattak, Afridi and Orakzai tribesmen. It is believed that the first record about these tribes going back to the 12th and 13th centuries relates to Logar. Further, is has been in record that the Khattak, Afridi and Orakzai

tribes have descended from the same parent tribe. As a proof it can be seen that Logar is close to the Pakistani area of Bannu on the opposite side of The Durand and Bannu is known to be the first area settled by the Khattaks.

 

Security Situation

While more stable than some of its neighbouring provinces in the country, Logar sees a constant high level of prostitution, primarily in the form of car bombs and rocket attacks on government, military and civil targets. Poppy production and tribal land disputes are also a source of unrest, as is the case across much of the country.
