Stable Pakistan necessary for regional peace: ANP PESHAWAR: ANP chief Asfandyar Wali Khan said on Friday peace could not be established in Afghistan and India without peaceful Pakistan.

Addressing a gathering here on Sunday, he said: “We believe in the politics of non-violence as preached by Bacha Khan.” Khan said that he was ready to hold talks with the suicide attackers.

ANP chief said that Pakistan could not termed a federation without giving provincial autonomy to all four provinces. He said that besides Pakistan and Afghanistan, India is also facing the threats of terrorism.

War is not the solution of any issue, he said and added that war between two nuclear-armed neighbors would tear down the humanity only.


ANP’s Independence Day


private news channel SAMAA break the news that Awami National Party ( ANP ); followers of the ideology of Bacha Khan; has announced to celebrate the independence day of Pakistan in KPK on 15thAugust instead of 14th August which is the real independence day of Pakistan and ; not to forget that India celebrate their independence day on August 15th.
On August 13th ANP (Sind) accompanying with the Sind nationalist parties called a strike in Sind which was against the restoration of local body system in Karachi and Hyderabad. The system was implemented in Sind in 2004 with the people’s mandate and successfully finished its four year term. The effects of strike were seen on the roads of Karachi from the evening of August 12th when a bus was set on fire with passengers inside the bus and a 10 year old girl died in that incident. Another injured person died the following day. Sind police was active and working hard to restore the peace in Karachi and from the midnight of August 12th till 13th and they arrested following people with the related information:

1.Fida Balouch 2.Hameed Balouch 3.Ashger Brohi 4.Imtiaz alias Joni (President of JSQM Khamisa Goth)
Arrested Accused are sindhi speaking and related to (JSQM).
ANP claimed to be the follower of Khan Abdul Ghaffar Khan ( Bacha Khan) who  came from the most violent and politically volatile part of British India and chose the politics of non-violence and became a close associate of Gandhi. His famous quotes which he practiced himself are “violence needs less courage than non-violence,” and “violence will always breed hatred, Non-violence breed love”. Asfandiyar Wali Khan who is the president of ANP and the grandson of Bacha Khan repeatedly quoted Bacha Khan’s ideology of peace and non-violence in his interviews.
Considering the teachings of Bacha Khan to his people , I think the act of violence in Karachi and killing innocent citizens by ANP workers while observing the strike is the antagonistic form of Bacha Khan’s ideology of peace and love. The president of ANP should extract these black sheep out of their rows who are destroying the image of ANP.
Their recent decision of celebrating Independence Day on August 15th; which is the independence day of our rival country India; is raising another question mark on their political stand for Pakistan. Due to Indian Army’s illegal occupation, cruelty, barbarism and unjustified division of Kashmir; Kashmiri people remember August 15th as “black Day’ every year and Pakistan on state and public level support their cause at the international forums. ANP’s decision of celebrating Independence Day on August 15th will give world a message of weakness, and retreat from the long standing position of Pakistan.
Aasfandyar Wali Khan needs to reorganize the structure of the party by bring the right people and teaching the right path of Bacha Khan. His extended absences from the political arena and lack of interest in his party affairs is leaving room for non-ideological people to make inroads in his party and give it a distorted image.

HISTORY OF PUKHTOON

The theory that the Pashtun or "ethnic Afghans" are descended from the ancient Israelites—more precisely, from the perspective of Jewish history the Lost Ten Tribes of Israel— has a longstanding basis as a tradition among the Pashtun themselves, was widely accepted by 19th century British scholars, and has been accepted by some reasonably recent and prominent individuals such as Itzhak Ben-Zvi, second President of Israel. However, contemporary anthropologists continue to debate this, putting forth an eastern Iranian people relation to the other peoples of the Iranian plateau based upon strong genetic and linguistic evidence, in addition to other possibilities such as admixture with invaders and groups that migrated to the region now inhabited by the Pashtuns.
