To Be or Not to Be: A Dual citizen and an Afghan Minister

The issue of dual citizenship has gained an exceptional amount of attention in this round of Afghan ministerial nominations. Out of the 25 ministers nominated for parliamentary approval, almost half hold dual citizenship. It is not surprising considering President Ghani’s reform agenda for a professional and clean government that garnered so much support in his presidential election campaign. Yet,...

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...

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.

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?

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.

Declining Development Aid and Emergence of Afghanistan’s Economy Post-2014

With Afghanistan’s presidential elections set for April 2014, and the withdrawal of the international security forces towards the end of 2014, both Afghans and the international community have set eyes on the fate of the country.
