Description: Chief Minister Amir Haider Hoti Sunday said that the political vision and acumen of Khan Abdul Wali Khan, Rehbar-e-Tehrik and former President of Awami National Party (ANP), has left undeniable marks not only on the politics of the country but of the whole region.

He expressed these views while receiving Urdu translation of a book, ‘Bacha Khan Aur Khudai Khidmatgari’ penned by Khan Abdul Wali Khan from Joint Director of Bacha Khan Research Center and Bacha Khan Trust, Zalan Mohamand here on Sunday.

The Chief Minister termed the Urdu translation of Wali Khan’s book as national document of Pukhtoons.

“Wali Khan was not only a seasoned politician, having deep insight on global politics, but was also an exceptional writer and historian,” remarked the Chief Minister. Late Wali Khan penned several books in English and Pushto languages and a vacuum was felt due to non-availability of his books in Urdu language, Hoti added. Speaking on the occasion, Joint Director Bacha Khan Trust, Zalan Mohmand informed the Chief Minister that almost all the books written by Khan Abdul Wali Khan are in the process of translation into Urdu language.

The Bacha Khan Trust, he added, is also conducting seminars and discussions on research and knowledge of Wali Khan. Soon a research journal would also be launched in this regard, he added.

The Chief Minister appreciated the performance Bacha Khan Trust and expressed the hope that students of history and politics would learn a lot from the hard work done by the staffers of the trust.He said it is the need of the hour to apprise new generation about the wisdom and vision of Wali Khan so that they could be informed about the illustrious history and norms of Pukhtoon society and make the struggle of great Puktoons as a guiding light for themselves.
