Tribals[People of Federally Adminstarted  Tribal Areas FATA located on
Afghanistan Pakistan AfPak border] contributed a lot from Pakistan Movement
 to stability of Pakistan and worked as soldiers without pay on
Afghanistan Pakistan border. The most important role among Tribals
played by patriotic Turi Bangash tribes of Parachinar  Kurram Agency
whose elders even before the formation of Pakistan  met Quaid e Azam at
 Delhi(This Historic meeting was reported at then time Dawn News Paper the
Clip of which is attached here as JPG Picture for readers). That is why Quaid
e Azam and her sister Fatima Jinnah has love with Parachinar the
Paradise on earth and visited several times. But After Quaid e Azam
and her sister death patriotic Turi Bangash tribes of Parachinar faced
and still facing step mother treatment especially in era of Dictator
Zia who wanted to commit Genocide of this area people with the help of
then time CIA Jihadis now a days Taliban millitants.

Quaid e Azam had promised with patriotic Turi Bangash tribes of Parachinar
that the local FC "TURI MILITIA OF FC" will be deployed in Parachinar and never be transferred to other areas But Zia regime changed the promise of Quaaid e Azam and shifted TURI MILITIA FC to other areas like Wazirstan and Bajur. In 1996 PPP especially its interior Minister Gen (R)Nasurulah Babar used Parachinar as launching pad for Millitant Taliban rule in Afghanistan and after 9/11 in name of war against terror, then Parachinar was once again used by
Dictator Pervaz Musharaf and then PPP and Recent PMLN by victimizing
patriotic Turi Bangash tribes of Parachinar and even imposing five
years long siege and Humanitarian blockade making it Pakistani Gaza.

Even today in era of PML N calling which calls itself as Quaiz e Azam Muslim League successors discrimination against patriotic Turi Bangash tribes of Parachinar is continued the best example is not giving Parachinar its due right the already announced mega Project  FATA Medical College.

It is worth mentioning that Millions of People living on border areas
of Pakistan and Afghanistan(AfPak)faced and still facing so many miseries especially in health sector.To solve these problems especially in health and boost the brotherly ties between two neighboring countries decades ago Govt of Pakistan announced a mega Project of teaching hospital and medical college at
Parachinar Kurram Agency FATA as Parachinar touches four provinces of Afghanistan based on the bond of Humanity. It is fact that remote and backward plus strategic important Pak Afghan tribal areas (FATA)are neglected all the time the best proof is delay tactics in the mentioned mega Project of Medical College and Teaching Hospital at Parachinar for decades. In the name of FATA different rulers gaining more and more aid from international community both during cold war and war on terror after 9/11.But hardly the mentioned aid received in the
name of FATA used on the welfare and development of tribal areas.

The issue of FATA Medical College is once again in discussion on Print
and Electronic media after decades. Therefore it is necessary to
mention the need as well as facts and figures of this mega Project to
new governor of PMLN and its Gov who are claiming to be supporting Projects on merit that is why he(Governor) cancelled the construction of a separate luxurious section for governor in under construction FATA House at Islamabad by Ex Governor Shauktuallah .

Decades ago federal government announced  that Fata Medical College
will be built at Parachinar as soon as possible with the aim that this
educational institute on one side will benefit the medical students
while on other side in the form of teaching hospital and medical
Faculty like Professors Asst Professors Specialists Doctors and
Surgeons will be available for millions of population of both Pakistan
and Afghanistan tribal people. Federal Govt  was aware of the
geographical and strategic importance of Parachinar, because
Parachinar is the only tribal areas which touches four provinces of
Afghanistan i.e, Paktia, Nagarkhar,Khost and Paktika while the
Afghanistan capital Kabul is at the shortest distance from Parachinar
in entire FaTA as shown in map of FATA (also given here for readers).

In Federal Govt Vision the FATA Medical College on one side can be
helpful in friendly relationship with four provinces of neighboring
Afghanistan as well as can provide basic medical facility to the
inhabitants of Kurram Agency and surrounding Tribal areas and
districts by decreasing over load from government and private
hospitals at Peshawar far away from Parachinar Kurram Agency.It is
worth mentioning that hundreds of patients from Parachinar Kurram
Agency and surrounding areas including neighboring Afghanistan
covering  10 to 25 hours hard journey to Peshawar KTH & LRH government
hospitals as well as Private Clinics at Dabgari & Hayatabad Peshawar.
During long hard and risky journey from home town to Peshawar many
serious patients expires that is why  Govt of Pakistan announced this
crucial project in appropriate location Parachinar Kurram Agency on
merit .

Later on different  governors as a representative of President of
Pakistan or federal Gov for FATA officially inaugurated by allocating
land for Fata Medical College (FMC) outside  Parachinar city to gain
credit for themselves .Even one of the Governor announced the casual classes at Shalozan House an official guest house at Parachinar city till
completion of building on specified location at Parachinar city but
this process and start of casual classes was suspended later on due to
unknown reason

In recent past the ex Governor Shaukatullah announced and  shifted
this already announced mega project for Parachinar Kurram Agency from
Parachinar to Bajur a worse case of using illegal powers(while ground
realities are that Mardan Medical College and Medical and teaching
Hospitals in Mardan and Peshawar are very near to Bajur) that is why
Parachinar is most suitable for this Project on merit and geographic
location But delaying tactics in already announced Fata Medical
College Parachinar now this opinion is developing among the patriotic
Turi Bangash tribals of Parachinar whose elders visited Quaid e Azam
at Delhi before partition and participated in defending the land of
Pakistan by sacrificing hundreds of men women children in
1948,1965,1971Kargil Kashmir and ongoing war on terror that
Is Parachinar not Part of Pakistan?? If Yes then why they are facing
step mother  treatment is a big question mark and if Fata
Medical College not built at Parachinar then this question mark will be
converted into frustration and deprivation creating distances as in

Moreover the above facts and figures regarding Fata Medical College
(FMC) at Parachinar and delay tactics in it are eye opening for new
Governor of PML N Saradar Mehtab Ahmad (Representative of President
and Federal government for FATA) who is claiming to committed for development of FATA on merit to announce this mega Project on its own place Parachinar.

The PML N Govt can boost ties with neighboring  Afghanistan by
announcing FATAMedical College at Parachinar as gift to tribal’s
people with addition to surrounding four provinces of Afghanistan even
by naming it as “Pak-AfghanFriendship mega Project /Fata Medical
College” if they want to avail this opportunity.

Otherwise this will be another blow for tribal population especially
people of Parachinar in developing idea that they are facing step
mother treatment.

It is need of hour that PML N Govt and its new Governor by starting
work and allocating budget for Fata MedicalCollege (FMC) at Parachinar
and other due rights before ending the current tenure and power they have.
