    NWFP officially renamed as Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa

    Senate approves 18th Amendment bill Senate approves 18th Amendment bill ISLAMABAD: Pakistan's North West Frontier Province was officially renamed as Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa on Thursday.



    After getting the National Assembly's nod of approval earlier this week, the bill has now been passed by the Senate. Eighty senators voted in favour of the new name, while just 12 opposed it. An amendment which had been moved by the PML-Q against the province's renaming was rejected by the upper house.



    Former NWFP interior minister Shahzada Gustasap said that the change in naming the province was already expected in the Senate. He thanked those who had voted against renaming the NWFP and said that the people of Hazara would continue to struggle for a separate province.



    The session had started off on a turbulent note with PML-Q and PML-N senators staging a walk out over remarks that had been made by ANP Senator Haji Adeel in a talk show.



    The Senator, Haji Adeel, had said that some PML leaders used to ‘eat pork and drink whiskey’ in the past but was quick to clarify that his statement was not directed at Quaid-e-Azam.



    Mr Bokhari, who represents Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani in the Senate, noted that the present bill had come when Pakistan had an elected president who did not interfere with the parliamentary committee or parliament while the previous major Eighth and Seventeenth amendments were made under duress to distort the Constitution as desired by then military rulers.



    “The Eighteenth Amendment has thrown out that dirt and now you have a clean constitution …,” he said about the bill which also aimed to enhance provincial autonomy, repeal the 17th Amendment of 2003 that legitimised the decrees of then military president Pervez Musharraf, and provide for a parliamentary oversight of the appointment of judges of the superior courts.

    Pakhtuns, a proud and ancient race who have ruled India, Iran, Bengal, Pakistan, defeated the British and Soviet empires. Called by one Bangladeshi economist as "the true defenders of Islam".



    Some proud Pakhtuns.



    Land of "jirga" where even the poorest Pakhtun is proud and his honour is sacred.



    Tea house in Swabi, hospitality is a highly important value amongst Pakhtuns and he who does not honour his guests is not a true Pakhtun.

    A proud race. This Pakhtun's rugged face reflects the tough nature of many of his people who live in the mountains and created many empires and kingdoms.



    The legendary Muslim leader and Pakhtun, Badshah Khan, who studied the Quran at a young age, wore simple clothes and called for peace, education and progress.

    He was also a friend of Bengalis and a Bengali writer wrote about his life.



    His son Wali Khan who was an ally of the great Bengali leader, Mujib walking to embrace him.



    His grandson with the current Bengali foreign minister, Dipu Moni.

    Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa has now be given a proper name after decades of struggle

    Baza, you are welcome.

    I will be supporting Pakhtuns because:

    1. It was Pakhtuns who supported us in 1971. I read an article from the Daily Star (a Dhaka newspaper) interviewing an ex-Khidmatgar who migrated to East Pakistan for work (the article is no longer online). He eventually joined the Bengali side in 1971 disgusted at the arrogant and inhumane way the West Pakistani (Punjabi and Hindustani) civil servants used to treat Bengalis. Also there were Pakhtun soldiers in the army at the time who defected to our side due to their shock at the atrocities being commited. They went to join a guerilla group in a country a thousand miles away from their homeland, families, mothers, children and were prepared to die in that far away land.

    It is this sense of honour and indomitable spirit which led to Pakhtuns creating so many empires and kingdoms.

    2. I am of distant Pashtun ancestry, but even if I wasn't I would still be respecting Pashtuns as I respect the Ottoman Turks who were also great Muslims.

    3. I have faced a lot of racism in my life from both Punjabis and Hindustanis and I have realized Pakhtuns, who are Aryan are very different to these Indic races.

    These cruel and devious races view themselves as "chalaak" (clever) and simple-minded and sincere Pakhtuns as "dumb", this is because Pakhtuns do not have the same Indic ex-Hindu arrogance, deviousness and cruelty of these races.

    4. Bangladesh used to be ruled by Pakhtun leaders who are considered national heroes in Bangladesh, such as Isa Khan, Usman Afghan Khan, Bayazid Karrani etc.

    So Bengal and Pakhtunkhwa are connected by blood, history, religion and many other things.

    Pakhtuns are in a very difficult time now and they need to be supported so I will be supporting Pakhtuns just as Pakhtuns supported us in 1971.

    I hope one day insha'Allah a Bengali in Bangladesh writes about Badshah Khan (rahmatullahi alaih) and Pakhtuns, because an Indian Bengali has already done that, so we need to follow and promote his message of progress and peace.

    Thanks for the youtube video.
