Bazarak District is a district of Panjshir Province, Afghanistan. The population in 2019 was estimated to be 20,892.[1]

The district was reportedly the last of the province captured by the Taliban from the National Resistance Front of Afghanistan on 6 September, during the Republican insurgency in Afghanistan. Remaining resistance fighters were pushed into the mountains.[2][3][4] On 9 September, however, Ali Maisam Nazary, the Resistance's spokesman and foreign relations head, downplayed the amount of territory the Taliban was reported to have taken control of in Panjshir province, stating that 60% was still under National Resistance Front control.[5][6]
