On the Unabated Blood Baths in Peshawar

 

It was a cold December morning in Peshawar and students at Army Public School & College (APSC), Warsak Road, were busy in their daily activities. They had no idea about the monsters lurking in their backyard. They had little clue as to what is going to happen to them in the next few moments. Little they knew that their lives will be changed forever.

Peshawar has witnessed many good an...

World’s Typical Understanding of Pashtun Women, from Malalai of Maiwand to Malala of Swat

World’s Typical Understanding of Pashtun Women, from Malalai of Maiwand to Malala of Swat

 

The winning of Nobel Peace Prize by a young Pashtun girl Malala Yousafzai was a landmark in the history of Pashtuns.

To become a Nobel laureate might not be something highly extraordinary for the developed world; however, Malala’s victory made history for Pashtuns. What Malala did uniquely was to portray a soft, modern and progressive image of Pashtuns to the world, something that many Pa...

We Must Guard Feminist Gains Created by Malala's Case

 

Malala's case has successfully created a popular narrative of the woman's question and gender justice in Pakistan, a narrative which is politically progressive and culturally authentic. Key features of this narrative include girls’ education; education for all, end to religious fascism (taliban), and end to patriarchy.  For Pashtun women and girls, creation of this narrative will resu...

Meet the Woman who Taught the Taliban a Lesson

Gul-e-Khandana, 44, a school teacher in Pakistan’s northwestern region, has become an icon of education who defied the powerful Taliban during the peak of the insurgency in 2007 to 2009.

Living in the Swat valley, she continued to teach local girls until the launch of a military operation that forced the local inhabitants to evacuate. As a result of the operation, which continued for almost two m...

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)

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.

 Pukhtuns are no...

Not Fit to Print: An Insider Account of Pakistani Censorship

"Imran [Khan], [Tahir ul] Qadri, and the ISI [Inter-Services Intelligence] are our best friends," our weekly editorial meeting at Pakistan's Express Tribune was (jokingly) told on Aug. 13, 2014, a day before the two political leaders began their separate long marches from Lahore to Islamabad, and plunged the country into crisis. "We know it's not easy, but that's the way it is ...

Give Voiceless a Voice (FATA Commission for the Status of Tribal Women)

It is ironic that Federally Administered Tribal Areas’ women, population of 1.5 million (1.5 is an official number, it is much greater as we experiencing migration from FATA due to ongoing operations and mostly families are female headed) have no forum, commission, tribunal to advocate and protect her rights. FATA women are treated as invisible entity in Pakistan. In state structure, (Jirga, FCR, ...

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...

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.
