A Dummies Guide to Tackling Terrorism in Pakistan

The term terror and its various derivatives (terrorism, terrorize and terrorist) have been used since antiquity. However, in recent years, the term terrorism rose to prominence in 1968 when Popular Front for Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) hijacked an Israel airliner en route from Tel Aviv to Rome. PFLP founder Dr. George Habash proudly said “At least the world is talking about us now”.

On July 1, 2014, my anger turned into frustration and then helplessness during my meetings with the IDPs women and children of North Waziristan at District Bannu.

My little worries and security concerns of overnight stay at Bannu were completely overwhelmed when I reached the Bannu Sports Complex and saw men, women and children waiting in scorching heat with out shelt...

Is it a Burden to Have Four Daughters in a Pakistani Society?

“Four daughters?” the woman asked, her eyes wide with a mix of horror, pity and fascination.

Then,

“Mashallah!”

A sympathetic smile, followed by,

“They are beautiful. May Allah (SWT) bless them with good kismet (fortune)”

I can’t count how many times I have heard these sentences being said to my mother. Different women, same words, same connotations e...

Pakhtuns of Pakistan – Victimized and Demonized at the Same Time

“These are Punjab dogs [sic], whitish Punjabis, teach them a lesson!” This was a Facebook status update of an emotionally charged Afghan, watching Pakistan’s cricket match against Afghanistan when Pakistan’s cricket star Shahid Afridi was sent back to the pavilion for mere four runs. The Afghan cricket team celebrated the wicket fall in a traditional way, but on social media the response was more ...

Afghan Culture Needs Reforms

Afghan Culture Needs Reforms

Afghans have inherited a set of rituals and customs from their ancestors. People in this country have traditionally grown up in rural areas within large families and tribal communities. Some of these traditions such as marriage without the consent of girls and boys, barring girls from getting education (in some cases boys) and preventing people from thinking freely have proven to be difficult fo...

NAZARMATAY; A Ray OF Hope   (Guard against evil eye)

There are many problems which are solved by the ingenuity of human beings. From the very beginning, man is fighting against nature .It is a great duel. Modern man, no doubt is successful against nature in many battles but there are many instances where logic and science completely fail to secure him. He is then left with the only option to seek refuge in supernatural things.

National Policy on Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in Pakistan

Pakistan is prone to natural and man-made disasters. A major earthquake in 2005 and floods and militancy in 2009-2010 caused massive displacements of population, yet we rely on ad hoc measures in times of crisis.  Although Pakistan has a National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA), Provincial Disaster Management Authorities (PDMA) and a FATA Disaster Management Authority (FDMA) to tackle wi...

Women: An Economic Burden?

Career-oriented women face a variety of hurdles in pursuing their jobs, including those shaped by cultural, familial, and religious attitudes towards working women. A major part of this is the belief that women are the responsibility of men, that woman is to be entirely dependent on men for her economically except, according to some, under strenuous circumstances. Often, this complete reliance on ...
