Earthquakes in Afghanistan UPSC NOTE


  • Afghanistan is located in a seismically active region where the Indian and Eurasian tectonic plates collide. 

  • This collision is responsible for the formation of the Hindu Kush mountain range.

  • As the plates continue to move, they build up stress that is eventually released in the form of earthquakes.

  • Afghanistan is also affected by the movement of the Arabian plate

  • The Arabian plate is moving northward, and as it does so, it is subducting beneath the Eurasian plate

  • This subduction is also a source of stress that can be released in the form of earthquakes.

  • In fact, Afghanistan is one of the most earthquake-prone countries in the world. 

  • The country has experienced a number of earthquakes, including a magnitude 7.5 earthquake in 2015 that killed over 390 people.
