From Kabul with fading hopes: Afghanistan’s war continues

It is fighting season in Afghanistan and August was particularly bloody on Kabul’s streets. In the weeks before I arrived in the city, attacks had left dozens dead, hundreds more injured and faith in the government’s ability to secure the capital all but shattered.While a secure Kabul rarely means a stable Afghanistan, an insecure Kabul inevitably signals a deeply unstable nation. Kabul’...

Overcoming Pashtun Cultural Conundrum

This article is a sad commentary on majority of Pashtuns’ lukewarm attitude to female progress more generally in the realms of higher education and job market. There is a huge mismatch between a Pashtun male and his female counterpart when it comes to contributions beyond the boundaries of home. In the context of Pakistan, one finds Pashtun males everywhere. From higher education to political to e...

Drones will tear us apart: Pakistani pop's war fixation

PESHAWAR: A lover's eyes compared to a drone strike, a smile to a suicide bomb and lips to fire. The violence of Pakistan's bloody insurgency has been injected into catchy pop lyrics after more than a decade of war against Islamists opposed to all forms of song and dance.

Some of the hit songs are regarded as deeply poignant in the country's conservative Pashtun belt — but others are criticised a...

Love in Pashtun Society

Friday, 13 February 2015  |  Farman Kakar
Love in Pashtun Society

The acceptance of love varies from society to society. The more liberal a society is, the more love is respected there. Like any other ethnic group, Pashtuns do not have a single society. Rather, they inhabit various societies. Thus, you will find Pashtuns to be very conservative, conservative, liberal, and very liberal. Nevertheless, very conservative and conservative Pashtuns are far more numero...

Pashtuns Don't Want a Talibanistan

An article on Foreign Policy "Islamic Republic of Talibanistan" argues that since Pashtuns on both sides of the Durand Line have waged jihad for an Islamic system or sharia law, why don't they implement sharia law in this region? The author proposes that the Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA), other Pashtun areas in Pakistan, and the Taliban controlled areas in Afghanistan should be carved...

Still Children of a Lesser God

The language of exclusion guides, the popular discourses and, charges of treason hangs like sword of Damocles whenever there is talk of rights of small provinces and diversity of the country, which is called Pakistan. Whenever there is exploitation of natural resources or depriving the small provinces of equitable economic and resources distribution, it is always presented in sugar-coated language...

Afghanistan: Geo-Strategic Land or Land of Opportunity for Trade?

Afghanistan has been the jumping pad for invaders and occupiers over the centuries due to its geo-strategic and geo-political location in the heart of Asia. It has also been a significant trade route to Central Asia, South Asia, West Asia and Europe; the prominent Silk Route is one of its best examples.

The Silk route was an important major trade route through which the goods such as spices a...
