Freedom, Loyalty, and Hospitality are at the Heart of our Nation
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Is badal out of date, or is it more relevant as a form of reciprocity in conflict resolution and not conflict enhancement?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:
