Symbolic Performance by Young Afghan Girl against Street Harassment

The performance of Kubra Khademi, a 25-year-old Afghan girl, who recently walked through the streets of Kabul wearing a metal armor (which accented her curves on her chest and backside) to protest against street harassment, went viral on social media. She became a topic of discussion—mostly among men—soon after her pictures were shared on social media outlets. While some praised her for her braver...

Are Pashtuns “a” Tribe: Multiple Origins of Pashtuns

While reading a blog post  recently about whether Pashtuns are a tribe or not, I could not hold myself back from saying that Pashtuns may be tribal people, but they are definitely not a tribe. According to the Oxford Dictionary, a tribe is “A social division in a traditional society consisting of families or communities linked by social, economic, religious, or blood ties, with a common cultu...

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...

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.
