    May God shower his choicest blessings on him.He was a man who tried to unite the disparate and easliy
    brianwashed and misled Pashtun illiterate tribes .They are always easily misled by religious fanaticsm and their own irrational conservatism and slave ways. This man was an intellectual trying to synthesize socialism and nationalism and create a progressive Pashtun national polity. The Pashtun respect him and he is a light in a sea of darkness created by the Fascims from the evil state of Napakistan and the feadal racsm eminating from South Asian cultures and also the violent use of religion by the ruling classes of both India and Pakistan to achieve their power positions in society. May God bless him eternally.
    He and his party though having flaws are by far the most intellectual among Pashtun of Pashtunkhwa.
