      Actually Tur Ghar has never been part of FATA but were included in PATA i.e. Provincially Administered Tribal Areas whereas FATA is administered federally. This is a very important difference. I am of Turghar.

      TNC and FCSN demand for reforms in FATA


      Chairman Tribal NGOs Consortium and Coordinator FRs Civil Society Network (FCSN)
      Zar Ali Khan Afridi has welcomed merger of Kala Dhaka(Tor Ghar) into settled
      areas of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province by sitting provincial government of ANP and
      PPP. He said that reforms for FATA were announced by President Asif Ali Zardari
      about one and half year back on the occasion of 14th of August 2009 but still
      these reforms are to be implemented and the words of incumbent President will
      get practical. It was very nice statement of the President to read that the
      present government is resolved firmly to bring the far flung areas of the
      country into the main stream of national life, and government has decided on
      reforms in tribal areas that include political parties Act to the tribal areas
      and suitable amendments to the Frontier Crimes Regulation (FCR) in accordance
      with the wishes of the people of tribal areas which will be implemented as soon
      as the security situations in tribal areas improve.

      People of FATA which have a population of more than 10 million have been
      suffering from miseries for the last almost 63 years but since 2003 they are
      living in hell. Their political and social life is destroyed while the business
      activities are at standstill due to militancy. It was 1901 when FCR was imposed
      on people of FATA, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Province and Balochistan. Khyber
      Pakhtunkhwa province and Balochistan got rid of this inhuman law years ago but
      as for as FATA is concerned, it is still burning in this fire. When PM Gillani
      took over as PM , in his maiden address to parliament he had announced abolition
      of FCR from FATA but till this day his announcement could not see his words to
      be practical. Pretending security situations will not help FATA people rather it
      will be a continued process and people of FATA will be suffering. TNC and FCSN
      demand of the incumbent government to make words practical and announce reforms
      in FATA. Such steps will reduce problems and militancy will have no place to
      nurture any more. We also demand of the government to at least announce few
      reforms at once. These are included extension of Political Parties Act,
      representation in Provincial Assembly of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, abolition of
      collective responsibility clause and turning FATA present status into PATA.

      Regards,

      Zar Ali Khan Afridi
      Chairman
      Tribal NGOs Consortium
      Coordinator
      FCSN (FATA)
