|Title:||Pukhtun Ethnic Nationalism: From Separatism to Integrationism||Contributor(s):||Khan, A (author)||Publication Date:||2003||DOI:||10.1080/14631360301650||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/494||Abstract:||There is many a myth about Pukhtuns. The British colonialists thought Pukhtuns were 'unruly' people that could not be tamed. When Pakistan came into being, Pukhtun nationalists were regarded as the most serious threat to the new state, and until the 1970s every government persecuted them. But during the last three decades of the twentieth century, Pukhtun politics underwent a sea change. Today, Pukhtuns, who were opposed to the creation of Pakistan and had demanded an independent state of their own, have become one of the most powerful partners in the state hierarchy. This paper critically examines the myths the orientalists have created about Pukhtuns and the changing pattern of Pukhtun politics.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||Asian Ethnicity, 4(1), p. 67-83||Publisher:||Carfax Publishing, Taylor and Francis Group||Place of Publication:||United Kingdom||ISSN:||1463-1369
