For locals in the city and many people across Pakistan, Namak Mandi is synonymous with mouthwatering tikka karahi and other tasty barbecued meats, the likes of which cannot be found anywhere else. Unlike many other popular restaurants, you will not find any air-conditioned halls in Namak Mandi.

Although there are many shops in Namak

As the day comes to an end, life begins at Peshawar’s Namak Mandi market, which is famous throughout Pakistan and beyond for its tasty mutton. More than 30 hotels offer mutton in Namak Mandi.

Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa on Friday unanimously approved a move to regularise services of 772 college teachers assistants in the province. Proposed in a private member bill, the move was approved by both the opposition and treasury benches during Friday’s provincial assembly session. Teaching assistants had been recruited by the Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa (K-P) government in 2014 and 2015 to address a shortage of lecturers in colleges across the province. The teaching assistants have since been demanding their regularisation. They have held sit-ins and rallies outside the K-P assembly and even in front of Imran

In the absence of any check by the government over the unbridled practices at the private educational institutions, strange things apart from the high fees and heavy fines have started happening there in the name of rules and discipline but none can hold their management accountable. Peshawar Model School, one of the biggest chains of private educational institutions in the province, has introduced unique punishments. It keeps the students out of the class for the whole day for not having the ‘school identity card.’ The students not availing the school

A few months ago, Project Peshawar made headlines for being the first international bilingual film to come out of Peshawar. The film recently premiered in the K-P capital late last month and received a lot of positive feedback. But film-maker Irshu Bangash told The Express Tribune that there have been people from the local entertainment industry who are trying to sabotage the film, claiming that it spreads a negative image of the city and “promotes western values” instead of local cultural values.
