Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Reservatons of People of Hazara

National assembly has renamed N.W.F.P. as Khyber Pakhtunkhwa with a support of 264 votes and having only twenty votes of PML-Q in opposition. The name Pakhtunkhwah was proposed by ANP which was finalized by adding the prefix of Khyber by PML-N.
There are massive protests in all the districts of Hazara after this renaming as people of Hazara believe that their identity has been snatched and the name has been changed on demands of an anti-Pakistan and anti-Islamic party which was a right hand of congress and opposed formation of Pakistan.
The protests are headed mainly by PML-Q local leadership including Gohar Ayub Khan, Umar Auyub Khan, Shahjahan Yousuf, Aman Ullah Khan Jadoon, Baba Haider Zaman, Sardar Yaqoob and some other politicians of other parties like Sardar Idrees of PPP and several others from local parties like Hazara Qaumi Mahaz etc. Their demand is now for a new province "Suba Hazara" and the demand is gaining more and more support day by day. Local PML-N leadership has also reservation on this renaming and in yesterday's voting, PML-N Sardar Mehtab Ahamad Khan Abbasi, Captain Safdar and Murtaza Javed Abbasi didn't take part in voting process and walked out. The local PML-N leadership understands the sentiments of the people of Hazara and it can lead to a complete washout of PML-N from the Hazara division.
