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

On Tuesday, 19th September, about 57 people involved in the Mashal Khan lynching incident were indicted by the Anti-Terrorism Court (ATC) in Haripur.

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. Starring Afghan-Dutch actor Shoaib Lodin as the lead,

For most stray dogs, life rarely has happy endings. There is no Lady to their Tramp, and no Dear family to adopt them. Their collar-free lives are littered with instances of picking at scraps to survive, being beaten or threatened by mean passersby, and eventually ending prematurely with a poisoned meal or a bullet fired during a culling operation. Long story short, it’s not exactly how best friends would expect to be treated. Pointing to a group of strays sitting under a tree, Zeba Masood tells The Express Tribune how

It may not be wrong to say that bridges capture the human imagination like no other form of infrastructure does, perhaps because their inherent function appeals to the most

The City of Flowers, Peshawar – Once known to be a place of story tellers, where nomads and travelers from all over the world would come and tell stories of their journeys, share experiences and spread knowledge and education. Since, Pakistan became the front line state against terrorism, the northern province, KP (Khyber Pakhtunkhwa) in general and its capital city, Peshawar, in particular, became the victim to all ills, and almost every individual, organization and business have suffered one way or the other. Though, education has been the prime focus
