The Monster Refuses to lay off its Hand

Our land has been hunted by multiple specters.

The political establishment in Islamabad is adamant in its pursuit of depriving the Pushtoon la...

Love in Pashtun Society

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...

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...
