The Antithesis of Anti-Malala Day in Pakistan

While the rest of the world is busy celebrating the achievements of a Pashtun teenager from Swat, a group of privately owned schools decided to do the exact opposite. Citing Malala's book I am Malala as anti-Islam and anti-Pakistan, the group has banned her book in all private schools and arranged seminars to condemn the contents of it.

The group’s president exhibited his acumen by saying, "It is...

The Role and Challenges of Afghanistan’s First Lady

When the newly-elected Afghan President Ashraf Ghani gave his inaugural speech on 29 September 2014, he paid an emotional tribute to his wife, Rula Ghani, Afghanistan’s first lady. The world, especially Afghanistan received the news as surreal, shocking and unprecedented.

Male Chauvinism

Wednesday, 15 October 2014  |  Shad Begum
Male Chauvinism

You are apologetic, defenseless and a weak creature. You are not supposed to condemn, criticize or argue. Obedience is the hallmark of your ideal character. You have no separate identity. You are known to others by the identity of your men – your father, brothers, or husband. You want to please all of them and struggle to meet their expectations.

Whether in the name of a self-defined religion or ...

The Problems of Polygamy

IT is often offered as a solution to the problem of destitute women. If every man married four of them, some have stated, then all women would have a male guardian, a protector, someone to support them.

The reality of polygamy, however, is often neither this neat nor this simple. Last week, The National, a leading newspaper out of the United Arab Emirates, published news of emerging research...

Afghan Culture Needs Reforms

Sunday, 18 May 2014  |  Bilal Nikyar
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)

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.

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...
