One of the most Corrupt Region in Pakistan is FATA , Federally Administered Area of Tribal Area , which is controlled not by Constitution of Pakistan , which is not implemented here .

FATA is Governed  by just one Article of constitution which is called , Article 247 , which has implemented laws that  are 150 Years old and made by British Empire by Lord Curzun a British Viceroy of East India company called , the  FCR , Frontier crimes Regulation .

Area of  Pakistan as FATA not under Pakistan Constitution:  

FATA consists of the following Areas , as according to Article 247 of constitution , which are not governed by Pakistan constitution and it laws and neither the Parliament National Assembly or the Provincial Assembly Governs it  are as Follows:

A:   7 Tribal  Agencies from North to South Along the Durand Line which are: 

  1. Bajaur Agency
  2. Mommand Agency
  3. Khyber Agency 
  4. Orakzai Agency 
  5. Kurrum Agency
  6. North Waziristan
  7. South Waziristan

B:  6 FR or Frontier Areas from North to South while Being Inside of Pakhtunkhwa Area  : 

  1. Fr Peshawar 
  2. Fr Kohat 
  3. Fr Lakki Marwat 
  4. Fr Bannu 
  5. Fr Tank 
  6. Fr DI Khan  

These are the Enslaved Areas Federal Areas ( Fr Areas )  , although the Fall geographically Inside of boundaries of Pakhtunkhwa Province .

C:  6 PATA AREAS Provincially Administered tribal Areas in Pakhtunkhwa  :

  1. Dir Upper
  2. Dir Lower
  3. Swat (including Kalam)
  4. The Tribal Area in Kohistan District
  5. Malakand District
  6. The Tribal Area adjoining (Batagram, Allai and Black Mountain of Hazara),Mansehra District.
  7. The former state of Amb in Hazara.

D:  6 PATA AREAS Provincially Administered tribal Areas in Pakhutnkhwa Annexed Area now in Baluchistan Previously under state of Kalat  that was Part of Pakhtunkhwa till 1971 :

  1. Zhob District
  2. Loralai District (excluding Duki Tehsil)
  3. Dalbandin Tehsil of Chagai District
  4. Marri Tribal Territory in Sibi District
  5. Bugti Tribal Territory in Sibi District

These are the Enslaved Areas Federal Areas ( Fr Areas )  , although the Fall geographically Inside of boundaries of Baluchistan Province .

They are also tribal Areas but they are not Governed by FATA secretariat but are controlled by the Pakhtunkhwa secretariat  and Baluchistan Secretariat those area which were Previously under FATA secretariat and “”Safron Ministry “”but they also come under ambit of President of Pakistan Direct rule under Article 247 and Lord Curzon Laws of East Indian company meant to Enslave the Pashtuns and not the Parliament of Pakistan or even the Parliament of Pakhtunkhwa and Baluchistan .

FATA secretariat and their Administration is also confusing as one Member from each District sits in Provincial Assembly of Pakhtunkhwa but he cannot make Rule for his PATA , constituency and has to seek Permission of President of Pakistan .

Furthermore PATA is under 247 of 1973 Constitution that still maintains the Draconian Law of FCR 40 even under PATA and one is denied of Human Rights and Rights Guaranteed under the constitution of Pakistan that is inherent in Basic unchangeable Right Articles that forms the basis of

History of FATA Laws : 

It is one of Big Mysteries of Pakistan is FATA really part of Pakhtunkhwa or not ?? , why Pakistan and Jinnah would keep the British Laws intact Behaving like Dictators and why they want to Impose this on People of FATA  Draconian Laws that separates it from Pakhtunkhwa , While Pakhtunkhwa had Article 247 Like Lord Curzons Laws with FCR 40 Laws just as Currently held in FATA currently .

After the Durand Line was Made starting from Gilgit Baltistan “” FANA ( Federally Administered Northern Areas )

IT was in 1930,s that Massacre of “””Qisa Khawani Peshawar””” , Happened and it was Bacha khan and their Supporters who were Butchered by the British by Firing on unarmed Protesters who were Protesting not allowing Political Party ANP Awami National Party Made by Bacha Khan to raise Voice of Pashtuns Against British these Same Draconian and Against Human right Laws that it had only Implement in this Part of the World and only Against Pashtuns .

It is these Black Laws  that are now Part of Article 247 of Pakistan constitution, and its Democratic right to Govern by the British and they imprisoned Bacha Khan and people of Peshawar and Pashtuns of Pakhtunkhwa rose to defend him and 1000 People of Peshawar fell in front of Machine Guns that were Manned by Punjab regiment with Sepoy,s from Punjab  from Mardan Center under Gora Officers , after the Nepalese Gorkhas , refused to Fire on un -Armed People famously .

The British Govt under it Elected Democratic PM sent a Team to Investigate and the Team came and held a Judicial Inquiry and it asked Bacha Khan and their followers , the reason and they demanded the removal of these Black Laws and hence it was Agreed to remove the Laws from whole “”NWFP”” , which is currently Pakhtunkhwa and Baluchistan as one province at that time .

IT is Ironic that FATA was Kept as such as even by the British cantonment would be Attacked by these Tribal and loot and Plunder the cantonment , and Peshawar areas and their Killings . so FATA was kept as Such to Protect themselves from these Tribes of FATA .In order to do that British used a cunning Tactics via their bureaucracy that were run by Grandson of Mir Jaffar “‘ President Skinder Mirza “”‘  from East Pakistan who was Titled “”” Traitor of India “”” and his name is Synomous to Traiotr , he was Later President of Pakistan and some Qadiani Elements in Bureaucracy of Pakistan and Pakhtunkhwa and the Pashtun Politicians like “”Sherpao Family”” and the “”Sahibzadas””,  “Babers and “”Arbabs “”Deobandi Mullahs of Pashtun Area , who had Pledged Allegiance Punjabi Based Deobandis with close Ties to British at that time under Qasim Naintawi and Mehmod ul Hassan and Obaid Ullah Sindhi all Punjabis and Previous Tutors in East Indian company of Arabic and Persian under “”Sir Syed Ahmad Khan “”” an Indian Pashtun who had been translator from the British and Mr Durand and Rooskeepal British Political Agents representing East India company Viceroy “””Lord Curzon”” in Durand Line commission.

One of them Qadiani Sahbzaada Abdul Qayum Khan was Man who drew the Durand line and had represented the British as Tehsildar Khyber Agency . was Astute Qadiani and this is the Line that has Divided the Pashtuns into Afghan and Pashtuns although they are “””Synomous Words””” actually and then Pashtuns were Later divided and Rule into Tribals and Pashtuns of Pakhtunkhwa and then Baluchistan was Annexed from it as “””Baluchistan “”, It should Also be Mentioned that Afghan rulers at time of Durand Line has Entrusted a Qadiani ” Sahibzada Abdul Latif “”” best friend of “”Sahibzada Abdul Qayum Khan”””  of Swabi who had converted him to Qadianism , and who had named his name on his Brother as ” Sahibzada Abdul Latif ” in token of his deed and his Effort to make “””Durand line””” ,  while he represented the Afghan Government in Durand line commission in 1898 .

These Mullahs were on pay role of British and they formed the Maliks and also the tehsildars and political Administration of KPK and FATA area and they made an Alliance towards not making FATA same as NWFP/KPK and demanded a separate Laws of FCR 40 and Lord Curzon Laws , currently under Article 247 of Pakistan 1973 Constitution.

Not much has changed even when the British Left and they Passed a Law called the Partition Act where all the Previous laws were null and Void and FATA even after Partition was kept the same when there was no Legal basis and First constitution of “”Liaqat ali Khan “””Objective Resolution “” had no Mention of FATA .

These Same traitors and British Chamchas  Bureaucrats of British era become the Presidents and Majority Muslim Leaguers under Jinnah and also the Generals in the Army and usurped power from the Politicians and they wanted to use the FATA for their”” Great Game Strategy””‘ and “””Strategic depth”””” after they formed Alliances with USA and NATO in Baghdad pact and they wanted dearly the Draconian Lord Curzon Laws and wanted to complete what that British had left incomplete because of two World wars and Lack of Army manpower after 1945 when WW2 Ended . They wanted Invasion of Afghanistan and Central Asia Dearly .

Generals Ayub Khan family being Son of a traitor of Soil  “””Mir Dad Khan Subedar””” of in Mardan Based Punjab regiment and Hudson Horse under col Hudson who was Killed by his Own sepoys for these Inhuman Atrocities in 1857 “”, who had had cut the Head of Last Muslim Emperor “””Bahudur Shah Zafar “”” and Hanged his 5 Sons in 1857 , was one Leading this and He implemented the martial law in Pakistan with help of his “”‘Qadiani Friends in Takht I Lahore”””” and hence , from 1958 , this Strategy was started and Nothing changed now the Kala Sahib was In charge after Gora Sahib Left .  The Qadiani Judges like Justice Munir Ahmad and Bureaucrats like Ch Zafar Ullah Khan and in Planning commission ” Grandson of  Qadiani Prophet “””Mirza Ghulam Ahmad”” “””Mian Muzafar Ahmad ( Planner of Kalabagh Dam ) was chief Planning commission head all  contributed in Supporting the Army Generals Ayub Khan and causing a Pause of Pakistan Democracy and Constitution called “” Nazria Zorat “”.

The Bureaucracy of Punjab and the Generals of Punjab wanted FATA for their Misadventures in Afghanistan and Central Asia and Americans were friend not Master rather the Opposite in this Gerat Game and FATA was the Launching Pad and Officer of Army were sent to USA to get Trained from Incompetent Generals who Passed Last on Merit in  “””PMA””” and were not fit for and Below Average officers like “”General Zia( failed his Staff college Quetta ) “”” (  to Hamid Gul to Mushraff and also other contributed who were never fit to be even a col in Pakistan Army on Merit .

FATA , was forcibly Made as what it is today , later some Areas of Pakhtunkhwa like , the following in 1971 , were made Part of FATA who were Never even in FATA under the British as the Kala Sahib were more active then the “”Gora Sahib””,  like “”””Bajaur Agency””” , “””Swat””” , and Malakand Agency and “””Upper Dir “””and””” Lower Dir””” , and “”Shangla””” etc was made into FATA , under Zulfiqar Ali bhutto and the Generals Yayha Khan “” after Protests Against one unit was made by Pashtun Politicians like Wali Khan of ANP and East Pakistani Politicians . The Assemblies of Pakhtunkhwa and Baluchistan were Dissolved and a Punjabi Rajput “””Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto””‘ son of British Chamcha,  “””Sir Shah Nawaz Khan “”” a Punjabi who was Given Land in Sind for his Service to British was part of this Scheme.

The East Pakistan 60% of Pakistan Broke away in Protest and Pashtun never did any Protest and Became””” Loyal Pakistanis””” serving under the Punjabi establishment Draconian Black Laws and in the forefront were the “””””Tribals  FATA Walas and their Political Agents and “””Maliks””” who were loyal to British found their other Pattern the Punjabis . The Punjabi Assumed the Position of God Like Causalities with FCR 40 and Article 247 , which was put in First even Democratic constitution of Pakistan in 1973.

The Maliks British Stooges and their son got the Position of 8 FATA senators and 12 MNA but no MPA, in Pakhtunkhwa to which they were Part of . This was a Mystery that is not Explainable on Basis of common Sense .


Is FATA Part of Pakhtunkhwa Big Mystery : 

So it is Big Mystery that is FATA being so different from Pakhtunkwa and yet it is not a Province , But it is Governed as a Different as Different Province , according to the constitution of Pakistan and it is Governed by only one Article , Called 247 , which makes the Lord Curzons Black Laws “”” FCR 40″”” as Laws of Tribal Areas be it FATA or PATA and direct Rule of President of Pakistan , some of the Anomalies of this small Strip of Land which is on Durand line facing Afghanistan ,

It Makes one wonder why the “”Kala Sahib “”” , go to Extreme Lengths to make it without  certain Personal  Rights, Democracy and Right to Elect their Leaders  and Human Rights that is Guaranteed to other Pakistani and not Tribal people belonging to only one Ethnicity that is Pashtuns.

Why a Stick Policy is needed for One Race and not other Pakistani , why Punishment and not the Goodies or Carrots are Needed to Govern them . The British Have left but the Kala Sahib is still there and more Loyol as”””” Loyol Puris””” Punjabis  to Gora Sahib that want to maintain thier Union jack over FATA Tribal and Claims this is Wanted by them ???? as Lies Perpetuated by Pakistani Media and agents of Punjabi Establishment.

Role of Mass Media of Pakistan  FATA : 

They say it is their culture and Tradition to confuse the People of Pakistan and claim that ., Tribal are Donkeys “”” who need a Stick on their Back to Function Properly as they are Stupid and un Worthy of Being a Democratic traditions . Although Evidence is Other wise , Pakhtunkhwa by contrast Always Votes the Best as compared to Punjabis who jimps over boad and selects the generals in Uniform and also thier Army Selected Poltiicains as thier favorites Mostly punjabis and Muhajirs offocourse .

No Jurisdiction of Parliament and Pakistan Secretariat in FATA  : 

The Pakistan Constitution and National Assembly has no Jurisdiction in FATA , that is under Direct Federal Rule of Islamabad and is controlled by the President of Pakistan and the FATA secretariat which is not under Pakistan Secretariat that controls Pakistan.

No Jurisdiction of Pakhtunkhwa Parliament and its Secretariat in FATA  : 

The Pakhtunkhwa parliament and Pakhtunkhwa Secretariat does not control FATA and its Laws and it is controlled Directly by the FATA Secretariat under President  of Pakistan .

No Jurisdiction of Supreme court in FATA : 

There is no Jurisdiction of Supreme court and High court of Pakthunkhwa in FATA , as it is termed as FATA Federal Jurisdiction Area under Islamabad by Pakistan constitution under Article 247 and it is not governed by the National and Provincial Assembly and hence , the Governance is controlled b Article 247 , just one Point Agenda of Pakistan Constitution and it says that FCR 40 ,which are 40 Laws that Govern the Justice and Law system of FATA

No Jurisdiction of Peshawar high court in FATA 

 Even when FATA is considered as Part of Pakhtunkhwa or not is a mystery for all Practical Purposes that , Peshawar high court has no Jurisdiction in FATA and recently Passed Changed in Article 247 sub Section ( 6) , only Says now that , FATA people have Right to challenge the Authority of Political Agents of FATA secretariat in Islamabad under the  President of Pakistan under a Tribunal constituted by Retired or Serving Judges or Peshawar High court but will work under the Rules of Article 247 and FCR 40 . common on this is another Joke on people of FATA . what is use of Such Rubbish Amendment in first place when , other 300 to 500 Article of constitution are not implemented in FATA . The Punjabi Establishment  will continue to remain the God like in FATA as matter of current laws are concerned and they will continue to Play the Games .

No Jurisdiction of Islamabad high court in FATA 

Recently when Islamabad High court came into being , which has Jurisdiction in Federal controlled Areas ,  7 FATA Agencies and 6 FR Areas were conveniently left out and this happened, and later when even an Amendment took place that allowed appeal process after Political Agent makes a Decision under the Article 247 and FCR 40 He cannot be challenged in the Islamabad High court although Peshawar high court can theoretically but not according to constitution of Pakistan but in Limited way only it can look into the 40 Laws which are called the FCR 40 and under Article just one Article of Constitution that is called Article 247 . A joke was Played with FATA People and they were Given the Feeler they are Slaves and will be treated like the Slaves in future  as well .

When  No Jurisdiction of NAB in FATA 

It is so Curious that , FATA which is controlled by the Bureaucrats is Home of highest corruption in Pakistan , yet when it comes to Implementation of Nab FATA , exempted because of two simple reason that , NAB is only Used for Political Victimization of Politicians and since the FATA is directly controlled by the Punjabi Establishment via the Corrupt FATA secretariat and its Predominate Punjabi Bureaucracy and Political Agents who are Direct rulers of FATA and with Fascists God Like Authority and as the Powerfull Arms of Punjabi Establishment .

It is strange that , NAB and Ehtesab Bureau has not caught a Single Person from FATA for Corruption and its Rulers who are just Figures heads and Dummies like 8 Senators and 12 MNA of FATA and countless Local People who work for FATA secretariat are never probed by the NAB , National Accountability Bureu and since 1947 , less then 2 % of What was Allocated budgets is actually Applied to the Projects which exists on the record , rest of 98% goes to Pockets of Punjab Federal Secretariat and the President of Pakistan  and also the , Punjabi Secretaries of Islamabad and Also the bureaucracy of Pakhtunkhwa are although not directly involved only the Political Agents and Tehsildars low grade officers Muhrars and also lower grade class 4 employees are all billionaires in rack in corruption which is Highest in Pakistan and world even for the record

No Jurisdiction of Ehtesab Bureau in FATA 

As mentioned Above Ehtesab Bureau is Provincial Department and not a Federal Entity like the NAB , so FATA is not Part of Pakhtunkhwa and it has 8 Senators and also 12 MNA and No MPA that sits in the Pakhtunkhwa Assembly hence it is a Separate Province technically but in the Constitution of Pakistan it is not Given any Legal Status and No laws of Pakhtunkhwa or either of its Department has any Relationship with FATA and so is the Ehtesab Bureau of Pakhtunkhwa .

Safron Ministry or Department of Aliens ( Not Outer Space Aliens ) or Illaqa Ghair 

I though the the whole day and could not figure what the hell this ministry was and although this ministry exists and it controls the area of Pakhtunkhwa which are under direct control of federation the 6 Fr areas in Pakhtunkhwa and others in Baluchistan . As well as 7 Agencies of FATA areas , and it is only Ministry in Pakistan that can be called the Illegal or Rogue Ministry as it is not under the control of Pakistan constitution and it is Governed by only one Article that is Article 247 as it has no relationship with rest of Pakistan and it can be called “”Illaq Ghair “”, “” The Others area / Aliens “”, Ministry and it is although under control of Interior Ministry and yet it is a Ministry in its own right and it no Part of Pakistan constitution applies to it and it a Government within a Government and it control’s the following areas 


2. FR areas

3. FANA ( Gilgat and Baltistan known as Federally administered Northern Areas )

Durand line is the Border that forms the International Boundary that separates the FATA, Baluchistan and NWFP and the Pakistan Area from the Afghanistan.

It extends from Wahkhan to Iranian border. This was created in November 12, 1893, after the British were severely defeated, in the Two Afghan Wars that British Empire Fought with Afghanistan and FATA and NWFP.

A series of conflicts known as the Anglo-Afghan wars during the imperialist Great Game between the British and Russia, led to the eventual dismemberment of Afghanistan.

Durand Line form the series of Divide and Rule Phenomena that British had recipe for their Enemies and to control Power of Muslims especially Pashtun who Brought Islam to Sub-continent from Afghanistan to India and Bangladesh Including Pakistan area

The annexation to India of the NWFP and FATA regions led to the demarcation of the Durand Line ,as part of British South Asia.. The Durand Line is named after Sir Mortimer Durand , Foreign Political Secretary of the British Indian government in Kabul (1884 to 1894), and the treaty also granted the Amir of Afghanistan (Abdur Rahman Khan) an annual salary from Britain along with shipments of weaponry.

One of the two representatives of the Government of Afghanistan was the Ahmadi / Qadiani  Sahibzada Abdul Latif of Khost, he had been appointed as a member of the Royal Commission, set up to negotiate terms with the British, and the two parties camped near the Khost border with  Parachinar ( Kurram/ Khyber  Agency which was one at that time  ) in 1893 .

Royal Mullah Shahibzada Abdul Lateef Ahmadi / Qadiani

Latter on the Sahibzada was Killed, by the Amir Himself on July 14 1903, as he Openly declared himself an Ahmadi and forbade his followers to Fight British. He had Joined the Ahmadiyya movement by offering Bay’ah ( Promises and allegiance to Mirza Ghulam Ahmadi ( Founder of Ahamadi/ Qadiani  Movement and claiming to be Prophet ) and Advocating an Idea of not Fighting the British as he and his Jammat thought , Jihad against British was not Required .

The Noted Person to Attend the Durand Line commission from British side was Ahmadi Shabizada Abdul Qayum  the Noted civil Servant of NWFP ( Pukhtunkwa ) , who was the First CM of NWFP Later in 1937.

Sahibzada Abdul Qayum of Topi Swabi British Representative to Boundary Commission Later called Durand Line

Sahibzada Qayum Khan was at that time Political Agent of Khyber Agency and he was First Non British one , at that time promoted from Tehsildar after he accomplished the Durand line Agreement as a reward , and He was given Prominent Position Later including being the First CM of NWFP/ Pakhtunkwa and was only Replaced after 8 month after he was Kicked out by Bacha Khan  in First Assembly of Pakhtunkwa .

Sahibzada was very close of Roos Keepel the First Commissioner to Pakhtunkhwa and FATA region and was Right Hand man of British Viceroy and Governor NWFP.

While the Afghan side greatly resented the border and viewed it as a temporary development, the British viewed it as being a permanent settlement.

This was what was point of Deception offered to Amir by the Ahmadi envoy . Resulting in   Amir Killing Many Ahmadis in Afghanistan  and Making them Persona Non-Grata and Their Forced Expulsions .

The Amir / King was Clearly deceived by his envoy the Ahmadi Sahibzada Abdul Latif The border was drawn intentionally to cut through the Pakhtun tribes.

Most of Times the line crossed their Homes and Villages so that they had to cross the border several times of day for routine matters. The British, who had captured most of rest of South Asia without significant problems, faced a number of defeats  here.

This was their Ploy to defuse the Pashtun resistance through ” Divide and Rule ” and Use of Religion and it dismemberment through Firqahs ( Sectarians ) .

This Policy is at Work even now .

The First Afghan war(1838-1842), with the Pashtuns resulted in a devastating defeat, with just one a Doctor (Dr William Brydon) and  a person as a Witness coming back alive (Out of a total of 14,800-16,000 people).

First Afghan war 1840, with Total Annihilation of British Army

Dr William Brydon of Irish Origin in British Army a Surgeon

Many were Taken as Prisoners including a Thomas Souther , the Souther Camp made by USA in Jalalabad is testament to History  is name after that man recently when Brits and Americans have Invaded Afghanistan after 9/11.

A grim reminder the Great Game is still on .

The Second Afghan War 1843-1881, was basically the efforts of Amir of Afghanistan to Regain control of NWFP and its capital which had fallen to British, which culminated in treaty of Peshawar (1855) pacified the Relationship a little with both sides respecting Border.

The Third Afghan War ,was also lost by British and this taught the super power a lesson which was taught to many super powers before including Alexander the Great and Chenghez Khan all loosing to Pashtuns .

Unable to enforce their writ in the region, the British changed tactics and played a game of divide and rule, installing Puppet Pashtun rulers and dividing the Pashtuns through artificially created regions and ruling indirectly so as to reduce the chance of confrontation.

In 1901 , The Pashtun were divided into NWFP Baluchistan and Afghanistan when NWFP was carved out of Afghanistan .

Then FATA was further Carved out  from it and created as separate entity which was left to FCR-40 Anti -human Right and Draconian Laws .

Then Southern Punjab another area was seperated from NWFP and Joined with Punjab .

Very careful Planning was made the Pashtun should not be United .

Although up to 1937 Pashtun offered great resistance in Waziristan and in Swat and Malakand in 1937 .

By 1937 after resistance was overcome in Malakand and in Waziristan ( from Fiqit of IPI , the NWFP had its first Governor and Chief Minister ( Off course the Loyal to British Sahibzada Qayum of Topi Swabi who was instrumental in Forming Durand Line from British Side  )

The First Governor of NWFP was British Sir Lord Cunningham ( Famous Author of Diaries )

The first provincial elections were held in 1937 and an  independent Loyal to British  candidate and noted Loyal British Civil Servant Ahmadi , Sahibzada Abdul Qayyum Khan was elected as the provinces first Chief Minister.

In the Great Game ,Religious parties were used  Like Deobandi “Jamiat Ulema Hind”, Played a a major role .

So did the Jammat Ahmadia which was specially used for this purposes . Maulavi,s were used to Convince people that enemies of Islam were actually Russians not British as the former were Ahle-Kitab.

These Ulema and their Sahibzada ( Title Holders of British )  Khan Bahdur Agents ,used Islam for declaring jihad against Russia ,but it failed to Convince some Ulema like Faqir  of Api ( Waziristan of Dawar Area ), who made lot of trouble for British.

Faqir of Ipi of Waziristan ( Mirza Ali Khan ) , freedom Fighter Who recognized the Treachery of Deobandis as British Agents .

Each Maulvi would get 10 Rupees Per month to offer speeches in Sermons. The performance was Monitored by Commissioners reporting to First NWFP ( Pukhtunkwa ) Governor Lord Cunningham.

The Liaison was established by Khan Bahadurs and the Commissioners, Noted among them was Deputy Commissioner Sikindar Mirza ( Grand Son of Mir Jaffer the traitor  ) who served in NWFP ( Later to become President of Pakistan in 1950,s serving American well ) ,

Khan Bahadur Kuli Khan of DI Khan ( who was Political Agent Waziristan too and served British in many intrigues to Destabilize Afghan Emirs Government ) and Ghulam Hyder Khan of Village Sherpao Charsada ( Grand father of Aftab Ahmed Sherpoa The ex- Interior Minister of  Pakistan during Mushraff  Reign 1999-2007 and Previous CM of  NWFP )

Khan Bahudur Kuli Khan Political Agent Waziristan British Loyalist

Even Prime Minister of Swat are mentioned in the, “Diaries of NWFP Governor, Sir George Cunningham”, and are well preserved in the Indian Office Library in London, among his personal papers.

Original idea of Durand line was by Lord Lytton (1876-80) ,an idea of a scientific frontier based on Defense/Economic Interests of British Empire towards Russian Expanding Empire.

Military experts came to be divided into two groups – the forward and the backward.

1.  The backward group advocated that Indus should be the frontier line because the tribesmen were troublesome and would not tolerate interference; it was difficult and Expensive to fight in the mountains; and it was very expensive to have British Cantonments in the tribal territory.

2. The forward group advocated that the frontier should be from Kabul through Ghazni to Kandhar because unless the tribal country was occupied tribesmen would continue to give trouble; river Indus the  frontier was not a frontier at all; tribal area could pay the expenses of military occupation if its mineral resources were developed; and even if the policy was expensive it must be adopted for the sake of British Interests.

3. Ultimately a compromise was reached by mixing both Ideas.


In the beginning the British had adopted an attitude of conciliation. Tax free and free trade Zones were established in FATA , medical facilities were provided and tribesmen were recruited in the army and the police.

Since this policy could not remove the basic cause of the trouble—the economic needs of the area–it failed.

Inheriting such policy after Independence, and even now when USA is offering Economic Zones which sounds too familiar to what British Offered.

But worse as Economic free Zones are not Planned inside the FATA areas. All of them are Planned in settled areas exposing Incompetence of our Civil Servants.

No direct Economic benefit will be derived to People living there. The Great Game ( 1800-1998 ) Players have changed and new term is Coined “ The New Great Game “ (1998- Ongoing ), involving Economic Interest of USA , Russia , China and India , Documented by Authors like

  1. Kleveman, Lutz. The New Great Game
  2. Blood and Oil in Central Asia, by Dr. Makni,
  3. The New Great Game: Oil and Gas Politics in Central Eurasia by Rashid, Ahmed Author of Taliban
  4. Islam, Oil and the New Great Game in Central Asia, I. B. Tauris.

Durand line in Danger of being Violated by all Players for their Interest even USA which claims to be an Ally.

The TAPI ( Turkmenistan Afghanistan Pakistan Iran ), pipe line will be crossing the Durand line and reaching Gawadar.

IPI ( Iran Pakistan India ) would be too. Which is opposed by USA as it will compete with TAPI and also it benefit Iran instead of USA.

Energy Security is a fancy term defining its Geopolitical interest which requires USA to maintaining Military Bases in Afghanistan , Pakistan , Turkmenistan , CIS states and maybe Iran.

It wants to safeguard the Trade Routes and the Pipe lines for Indefinite period.

The Taliban were ousted from Afghanistan because they had Awarded the Oil Pipe line deal to Argentinian company “ Bridas “ , as opposed to UNICAL( USA Company )  , on whose board of directors sits Dick Cheney and Bush family.

Hamid Karzai ( Current President of Afghanistan ) was an Employee of this Company before he was installed President of Afghanistan by the US.


What lies in future is in Hands of Decision makers Pakistan, if we are to survive the Dance of Elephants and not get Trampled. Best Option seems to be, Solid agreements which based upon Interests of Pakistan . Changing our dependence on USA which has changed from Friend to Enemy or Frienemy.

Opening up more to China and Russia , India and Iran . Joining the “ Shanghai Corporation Organization “ to balance the Power . Rethinking/ Abandoning, the Kashmir Issue is the need of Hour as we have to concentrate more on Durand line than before.

Other wise consequences will be disastrous as War on Terrorism is ploy to Grab the Oil Resources and Establishment of Permanent US Militry Cantonments in Afghanistan.

Now when China , India is also fighting for same space in Afghanistan and Pakistan, seems to be left alone and uptill now is Alone to consequences by every body Even the friends of Pakistan have been Reluctant up till now to Donate money.

This situation , calls for us to Change our Short Sighted and Myopic Foreign policy aligned with that of USA , is failed policy . Instead of taking advantage of the Trade which is swelled to 1 Billion US Dollars and Undocumented can be thrice of this amount , We have to Sit up and wake up to Realities.

Our Government and Establishment is stuck in ATTA and Money crises . it  should wake up and realize that we don’t have to beg from Doners but Impose our National Interest and Profit from the Trade.

The Taxes on Fuel and Petrol to Afghanistan was reduced to zero from 6.60 Rupees on each liter is also not good action. We should levy tariffs on the Trans –trade , which is reaching up to Afghanistan and even Russia .

As the land locked countries can benefit from the Trades. We should open up a Trade zones and Free ports in Tribal Areas, this will enable the poor people to Benefit from Economic Progress. The Tribal Areas , should be given the same status as NWFP and its Representatives allowed to sit in NWFP assemblies.
