Use of ‘Pashtunkhwa’ for NWFP challenged: The Daily Times, Sept 10

PESHAWAR: NWFP Assembly’s former deputy speaker Ikramullah Shahid has challenged the use of name ‘Pakhtunkhwa’ instead of NWFP by government officials in the Peshawar High Court (PHC) and requested the court to declare that such name should not be used for the province till amendment was made in the Constitution.

Advocate Ikramullah Shahid filed a writ petition some three days back in the PHC, wherein he cited various advertisements that appeared in local newspapers in which different government departments had used ‘Pakhtunkhwa’ as name of the province. Referring to advertisements that appeared on the occasion of Independence Day, the petitioner stated that the secretaries and high-level officials of the departments concerned had committed gross violation of the Constitution, which not only fell under the abuse of the official authority but was also an example of misconduct by the public servants. http://www.dailytimes.com.pk/default.asp?page=2009\09\10\story_10-9-2009_pg7_12
