Silence does not guarantee safety: “Consistent resistance” and the peaceful struggle for equality of the Pashtun Tahafuz Movement

In this new episode of The Polis Project Conversation Series, Francesca Recchia discusses with Mohsin Dawar the vilification of Pashtuns at the hands of the State and the military establishment in Pakistan. Drawing a geopolitical perspective that is rooted in the colonial history of the Indian Subcontinent, Dawar recounts the challenges, motivations and hopes of the Pashtun Tahafuz Movement with its wide and inter-generational mobilization.
