Bushra Gohar – the dignified face
of Pashtuns in Pakistan.
Currently, she is a member of the National Assembly of Pakistan and part of the assembly’s Standing Committees on Finance, Revenue, Interior and Kashmir Affairs. In the Parliament, she represents the Pashtun-nationalist Awami National Party (ANP) of which she is also a Senior Vice-President.

With such a rich profile, this graceful Pashtun leader is having a confidence which, unfortunately, majority of the Pakistani parliamentarians lack today. Although a fair-sex, but she is said to be stronger than the military leadership of both Pakistan and the United States!!
Why she is so strong and brave? It may have many reasons: 1) She is a Pashtun traditionally considered brave people; 2) She is actually a fearless village girl as she was born in Jhandha, a village in district Swabi; 3) She is the daughter of a classical officer of the Pakistan Army, Colonel (retired) Ali Gohar Khan; 4) She has got the wisdom of both East and West through education and trainings.
