WELCOME TO PUSHTUN.COM

NEWS

The Provincial Government in the Pushtun Heartland of Pakistan, led by the ANP (Awami National Party) agreed with the their coalition partners, the PPPP, to change the Name of the Province from the North West Frontier Province (a territorial and geographical definition of and area based upon its colonial past) to the Khyber Pukhtunkhwa. This has been a calling point for the Pushtun/Pukhtun in the area.

Who and what are the Pushtun/Pukhtun?

Many people have never heard of us, and most don't know where we come from in the world.

This page is presented to highlight the Pushtun, thier culture, origins, history, and humanitarian concerns in the modern world.

If you are a Pushtun, why not tell your account of what and who you are.

I'll also be discussing the state of the Pushtun Nation and its inevitable future. How do we shape the Pushtun future to reflect the modern world in terms of the concept of 'Pushtunwali'.

Is badal out of date, or is it more relevant as a form of reciprocity in conflict resolution and not conflict enhancement?

What about the institution of Jirga and Hujrah? How can we incorporate these into the modern world?

What of the Tribal Areas - How do we integrate them to reflect the progress that the global community is making? - Do we even need to?

A subject of most importance, internationalising the plight of Pushtun women.

What of the Pushtun Diaspora - What good is it if it doesn't help make a difference by using its learned skills for the benefit of the Pushtun Nation?

The headlines are filled with news of fighting and militancy amongst the Pushtun. What can we do to enhance our image?

Many more questions will be posed. This is your chance to find out more about us. But, if you have any questions, you can always pose them in the forum. Maybe, we can get a discussion going.

I'm looking for participation from you, whether you are Pushtun or not. Your input is vital for this website. So, if you can help, please don't hesitate.

I'll be setting up a guestbook and forum soon, to accept suggestions and comments.

Your comments are welcome, and I look forward to your input.

I'll be introducing the Pushtun to the world in the next few months. So, watch out where ever you are.

 

I plan to organise this website so as to follow the following structure. If you feel that I could add to this, or if you want to contribute articles or information that will help me produce a better website. Please feel free to contribute ideas and suggestions in the guestbook below the site plan:

Mails can also be sent to the following E-mail address for immediate appraisal

    In introduction to the Pushtun nation
    Thank you for introducing this new website to the global community. I hope you have every success in enhancing the image of THE PUSHTUN NATION, which has been tarnished in the recent past by the
    unreasonable activities of extremist organisations and individuals such as the Taliban, which do NOT represent the Pushtun in any way whatsoever.

    I look forward to the website becoming a torch for the Pushtun, by providing a positive image of the Pushtun amongst the global community. It's time we told the world who we really are and not let
    the general tabloid media reduce us to a bunch of Kalashnikov wielding fanatics. We are a proud nation who have suffered greatly at the hands of the prevailing powers from the onset of our nation's
    struggle for Freedom. Our spirit for independence and freedom is beyond any other in the history of humankind, and I hope that we can show our true nature in the spirit we have to live freely and
    without the dictates of militarily advanced powers.

    Our hospitality is par excellence. Out ability to progress has only been limited by the intervention and interference of outsiders and extremists. So, and as such, I welcome your contribution to the
    progress of our nation and to provide the world with a much needed reflection of our true nature. It's about time we showed the world that the absolute vast majority of Pushtun are peace abiding
    people who want exactly what every single human wants. To live in peace without interference and to progress our nation by enhancing and implementing the rights and obligations that are enshrined
    upon every human being in the United Nations Charter.

    Thank you again, and welcome.
