There has been a lot of ink spilled on this, and I’m not sure there is a definitive answer yet.

If the Pashtuns and the Jews are in fact closely related, this should show up in their DNA. Even here I’ve seen various claims, mostly unsourced. This post throws some doubt on their close relationship. The author is not a population geneticist, but he does give sources.
