In a report about the PTM, the Guardian mentions all sorts of bans against the Pashtun youth movement that also includes the ridiculous ban on ‘ Pashteen Cap’. But all that has failed to stop the movement. An interesting read.




Long Article but worth the read !

Even the “Pashteen hat” has been subjected to local, unofficial bans. Replicas can no longer be found in the Swat valley city of Mingora, where at least five shopkeepers selling the hat were recently detained and beaten by thugs associated with the military, locals say. Such "strong arm tactics" will have a blow-back effect for sure !


Our Government must provide 800% Moral and Diplomatic support to the freedom loving Pashtun / Pushtun / Pathan population suffering under the 700,000 strong Punjabi dominated Uniformed Jihadi occupation forces of the Mohammadden Terrorism Fomenting Islamic Republic of Pakistan by supplying 100, 000 Pashteen Hats free of cost to Afghan territories adjoining Afghan territories illegally occupied by the Mohammadden Terrorism Fomenting Islamic Republic of Pakistan. GOI should also ensure that all Pashteen hats so supplied will prominently have labels in Dari and Urdu stating that they have been made in India.

NA passes resolution to rename QAU's Abdus Salam Centre to al-Khazini Department

The National Assembly on Thursday passed a resolution to change the name of the National Centre for Physics at the Quaid-i-Azam University (QAU) from the Professor Abdus Salam Centre for Physics to al-Khazini Department, after Byzantine-origin astronomer Abu al-Fath Abd al-Rahman Mansur al-Khazini.
The resolution was tabled by PML-N lawmaker Captain Muhammad Safdar, who is former prime minister Nawaz Sharif's son-in-law and aspiring PML-N leader Maryam Nawaz's husband.Nuclear physicist Abdus Salam hailed from the Ahmadi community, whose members constitute a minority in Pakistan. Its members have faced persecution and were declared non-Muslims through a constitutional amendment in 1974. Not sure if this "gimmick" will help him secure his seat in the coming election :roll:
The physics centre had been named after Abdus Salam in December 2016 following the approval of then prime minister Nawaz Sharif, who had also approved a grant for five annual fellowships for Pakistani PhD students. The fellowship programme was called the Professor Abdus Salam Fellowship. It is unclear whether its renaming is also on the PML-N's agenda. Maybe, this will prompt him to tighten the screws further in the coffin of the "poor" Ahmedis - who by the way were in the forefront for the struggle for Pakistan before 1947 . Wonder if Safdar and the Mullahs are aware of this fact :mrgreen:


Some will recollect that the Mohammadden Terrorism Fomenting Islamic Republic of Pakistan on a projecting soft image public relations exercise to gull Kaafir Dhimmi Non Mohammaddens last year (Jan 2017) by the then Nawaz Sharif administration changed the name of the Islamic Republic’s National Centre of Physics to that of Noble Laureate Abdus Salaam who belonged to the much oppressed minority Ahmadi aka Ahmadiyya sect of Mohammaddenism.

The Mohammadden Terrorism Fomenting Islamic Republic of Pakistan seems to have now concluded that a projecting soft image public relations exercise to gull Kaafir Dhimmi Non Mohammaddens by renaming Physics Centres after a member of the oppressed minority Ahamadi aka Ahamidiyya sect of Mohammaddenism is not required. Either that or a move to stave of the possibility of being Qadrified by reversing the Bull Cutleting aka Wajib Ul Qatl prospects. Accordingly Nawaz Sharif’s son-in-law Captain Safdar aka Capt. Muhammad Safdar Awan (Retd) has proposed renaming the Abdus Salam Center for Physics to the pure, pious and even more halal name from a Sunni Mohammadden perspective, to that of Abu al Fatah Abdul Rahman Al-Khazini Centre of Physics :rotfl: .

Meanwhile back here at home in India, it is revealed that the portrait of the Mohammad Ali Jinnah, the Mohammadden supremacist bigot who tore India asunder and spawned a nation that has attempted to harm India for some 70 years, is being displayed at the Student Union hall of Aligarh Muslim University. (Jinnah portrait row: Situation at AMU 'under control'). Naturally I expect that the pseudo-seculars will show solidarity with the {likely} Mohammadden dominated Student Union of Aligarh Muslim University and do an equal=equal while bemoaning :wink:
imposition of a rigid, monolithic and majoritarian view of nationalism etc.


National Centre for Physics renamed as 'Abdus Salam Center for Physics'[/url]
Web Desk
January 3, 2017

ISLAMABAD: President Mamnoon Hussain on Tuesday approved a summary forwarded by the government to rename National Physics Centre in Quaid-e-Azam University as Prof Abdus Salam Centre for Physics, according to reports.

Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif gave his approval to rename the center after Dr Salam, the first Pakistani and the first Muslim to be awarded the Nobel Prize in sciences.

Last month, the Prime Minister directed the Ministry of Education to send the summary seeking to change the name of the National Physics Centre to Dr. Abdus Salam Centre for Physics, for approval to the President of Pakistan.

The Prime Minister made the decision keeping in mind Dr Abdus Salam's achievements in the field of Physics. In 1979, Dr Abdus Salam won the Nobel Prize in Physics for Pakistan.

"On one side Qureshi is shedding crocodile tears for the Kashmiri people, but at the same time, he has closed his eyes over Pakistan's illegal, immoral and unjust occupation of Balochistan and Pakistan army's atrocities against the innocent and defenseless Baloch citizens in the occupied Balochistan.

The “Official” mouthpiece of the Christism’s Catholic sect, Vatican News, reports on blatant Mohammadden discrimination targeting Christist’s of the catholic sect in the Mohammadden Terrorism Fomenting Islamic Republic of Pakistan:

Hardly surprising discriminatory conduct by the Government of the Mohammadden Terrorism Fomenting Islamic Republic of Pakistan. Such is the horror of being a Non Mohammadden “Dhimmi” in a Mohammadden majority country like Pakistan as Christist of the Catholic sect, Asia Bibi, is finding out with the government of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan continuing to prevent her from leaving the dhimmi concentration camp horror of that is Pakistan:

Jammu & Kashmir has more freedom than Pakistan, says US report

Not the first time that Freedom House in their annual report titled “Freedom In The World” has rated the level of Freedom in Jammu & Kashmir as greater than that in the Mohammadden Terrorism Fomenting Islamic Republic of Pakistan.

Excerpt from Eco Times:

In its recently-released annual report, Freedom in the World 2019, the watchdog said Jammu & Kashmir scored 49 on the 100-point Freedom House Index, while Pakistan scored 39 and PoK a paltry 28. The report also labelled PoK as “not free” in terms of freedom enjoyed by its residents and the functioning of local institutes.

The US was rated 86 on the index, closely followed by India at 75.

X Posted from the Oppression of Minorities in Pakistan thread to the Terroristan, Pashtun Civil War and Pakistan Armed Forces News & Discussion thread.

Op Ed in the New York Times written by Pashtun freedom fighter leader of the Pashtun Tahafuz Movement (PTM), Manzoor Ahmad Pashteen, who is struggling against the oppression carried out by the Punjabi dominated Uniformed Jihadis of the Mohammadden Terrorism Fomenting Islamic Republic of Pakistan.

:rotfl: The Kaafir media of the Non Mohammadden world seems to be neither concerned nor distracted by the Mohammadden Terrorism Fomenting Islamic Republic of Pakistan’s hyperventilating about manufactured Kaafir Hindu wrongs in Jammu and Kashmir as seen in the just gone by “Kashmir Solidarity Day” shindig in the UK but OTOH is very much more concerned about the Mohammadden Terrorism Fomenting Islamic Republic of Pakistan’s trampling of the human rights of Non Punjabi’s by the Uniformed Jihadis of the Military:

In Pakistan, a Pashtun Cry for Equality and Justice

The country’s powerful military is trying to crush a nonviolent movement for civil rights.

By Manzoor Ahmad Pashteen

Mr. Pashteen is leading the movement for civil rights for the Pashtun minority in Pakistan.

Feb. 11, 2019

I lost my home in 2009 when a major operation by the Pakistan military forced us to leave our village in South Waziristan in the Federally Administered Tribal Areas along the border with Afghanistan.

Around 37 million Pashtuns live in this region that includes the northwestern Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Province, the Federally Administered Tribal Areas — which have now been merged with the province — and parts of southwestern Baluchistan province. Our impoverished region has been desolated by the long war on terrorism.

When I was in high school, we moved to Dera Ismail Khan, a city around 100 miles away. Ours was yet another family among six million people who have been displaced from the region since Pakistan joined the war on terror in 2001. Tens of thousands of Pashtuns have been killed in terror attacks and military operations since.

But our economic and political rights, and our suffering has remained invisible to most of Pakistan and the world because the region was seen as a dangerous frontier after numerous militants moved there after the fall of the Taliban.

The government ignored us when these militants terrorized and murdered the residents. Pakistan’s military operations against the militants brought further misery: civilian killings, displacements, enforced disappearances, humiliation and the destruction of our livelihoods and way of life. No journalists were allowed into the tribal areas while the military operations were going on.

Pashtuns who fled the region in hopes of rebuilding their lives in Pakistani cities were greeted with suspicion and hostility. We were stereotyped as terrorist sympathizers. I was studying to become a veterinarian, but the plight of my people forced me and several friends to become activists.

In January 2018 Naqeebullah Mehsud, an aspiring model and businessman from Waziristan who was working in Karachi was killed by a police team led by a notorious officer named Rao Anwar. Mr. Anwar, who is accused of more than 400 extrajudicial murders, was granted bail and roams free.

Along with 20 friends, I set out on a protest march from Dera Ismail Khan to Islamabad, the capital. Word spread, and by the time we reached Islamabad, several thousand people had joined the protest. We called our movement the Pashtun Tahafuz Movement, or the Pashtun Protection Movement.

Ours is a peaceful movement that seeks security and political rights for Pashtuns. Apart from justice for Mr. Mehsud, we demand investigations into the killings of thousands of other Pashtuns by security forces and militants. We seek an end to enforced disappearances.

As loyal, taxpaying citizens, we demand that Pakistani security forces act as our protectors and stop the harassment of Pashtuns at checkpoints and during raids. We demand that Islamabad cleanse Waziristan of land mines and other unexploded ordinances.

We had several meetings with the military leadership. Some generals publicly acknowledged our grievances but they never moved to address our concerns. We held numerous sit-ins and protests and continued to hope that Pakistan’s leaders would try to address our concerns. Instead, they responded with intimidation and violence.

After every major protest, police arrests and charges P.T.M. activists and supporters with rioting, treason or terrorism. Some of our activists are still being incarcerated under a colonial-era discriminatory law, which is no longer on the books.

When we soldiered on, they unleashed the Taliban. In July, four P.T.M. protesters were killed and dozens injured after Taliban fighters fired at them. A military spokesman declared these Taliban fighters to be members of a peace committee and praised them for fighting terrorism and doing their part for “stabilization.”

More recently, on Feb. 2, Arman Luni, a leader of our movement, who taught at a college, died after he was beaten up by the police for protesting against a terrorist attack in Balochistan province. My fellow activists and I were barred from joining his funeral. We participated anyway but were forced to leave the province after midnight. As we were driving out, the security forces fired at our car.

Our demands and actions are underwritten by the Constitution of our country but the military is trying to portray us as traitors and enemy agents.

While vile propaganda against our movement is reported as news, the security establishment has ensured that almost nothing is reported about our movement in the mainstream Pakistani newspapers and television networks.

The military unleashed thousands of trolls to run a disinformation campaign against the P.T.M., accusing us of starting a “hybrid war.” Almost every day they accuse us of conspiring with Indian, Afghan or American intelligence services. Most of our activists, especially women, face relentless online harassment. A social media post expressing support for our campaign leads to a knock from the intelligence services.

Scores of our supporters have been fired from their jobs. Many activists are held under terrorism laws. Alamzaib Khan Mehsud, an activist who was gathering data and advocating on behalf of victims of land mines and enforced disappearances, was arrested in January. Hayat Preghal, another activist, was imprisoned for months for expressing support from our movement on social media. He was released in October but barred from leaving the country and lost his pharmacist job in Dubai, his sole source of income.

Gulalai Ismail, a celebrated activist, has been barred from leaving Pakistan. On Feb. 5, while protesting against the death of Mr. Luni, the college teacher and P.T.M. leader, she was detained and held incommunicado in an unknown place for 30 hours before being released. Seventeen other activists are still being detained in Islamabad.

Imran Khan, who once boasted of his Pashtun origins, took office as the new prime minister of Pakistan in August, but his government has chosen to do little to change the state’s attitude toward our demands for justice and civil rights.

The military is keen to ensure absolute control. We are not seeking a violent revolution, but we are determined to push Pakistan back toward a constitutional order. We are drawing some consolation from the recent judgment by Pakistan’s Supreme Court telling the military and the intelligence agencies to stay out of politics and media.

To heal and reform our country, we seek a truth and reconciliation commission to evaluate, investigate and address our grievances. Since our movement emerged, public opinion in Pakistan has turned against extrajudicial killings. Most major political parties maintain that enforced disappearances have no place in the country.

The legal and structural changes will take time, but breaking the silence and reducing the fear sustained for decades by the security apparatus is a measure of our success, even if the P.T.M.’s leaders are imprisoned or eliminated.

Manzoor Ahmad Pashteen is the leader of the Pashtun Tahafuz Movement.
