Pakistan: New Grassroots Forum to Empower Tribal Sisters in FATA

Pakistan: New Grassroots Forum to Empower Tribal Sisters in FATA | Pakistan newsroom | Scoop.it

SAWERA, a women-led grassroots NGO working in Pakistan's tribal regions, recently became a founding member of Takra Qabayali Khwende (TQK). TQK is a new established forum of like-minded individuals and organisations wanting to improve the situation of tribal women, children. and communities in FATA (Federally Administered Tribal Areas). “TQK” (pronounced as Tuck) is a Pashto word having multiple meanings. It means the pillar that holds roof. It can also mean a stitch, taunt, and decision depending upon the situation. Takrah Qabayli Khwende (TQK) is an initiative to provide a forum for all those interested in changing the situation of tribal women, children, and communities. FATA has a distinct legal and administrative status within the political structure of Pakistan. Recently, this distinctive status has undergone reforms such as the introduction of adult franchise, reforms in Frontier Crimes Regulation (FCR), introduction of the Extension of Political Parties Act, and signing of the Local Government Regulation (2012). In the backdrop of these reforms, there is need to oversee the implementation of reforms, particularly their impacts on women. Moreover, there is also need to empower women to influence policy-making for future reforms. TQK will provide forum to oversee and lobby for governance-related reforms in FATA.

Good looking Jamaat-e-Islami, Imran Khan and the "establishment" (analysis)

Good looking Jamaat-e-Islami, Imran Khan and the "establishment" (analysis) | Pakistan newsroom | Scoop.it

It was easy for Hafeez Ullah to preach Maudaudi’s Islamic ideology to Imran, who, after enjoying the best of this world was perhaps seeking the same for the next world. Imran retired from cricket first in 1987, after his team’s defeat in the World Cup semi-final at Lahore, but reversed his decision at the insistence of General Zia ul Haq. After winning the 1992 World Cup as captain, he attained the status of a national hero, after which he finally hung up his cricket shoes. A series of articles written by Imran from 1987 to 1992, in which he criticised western culture and the British Empire and emphasised the promotion of one’s own Islamic-nationalistic identity, reflected the JI’s brainwashing.
