I was born in Dabar a very beautiful village in the remote part of the district Bajaur, Pakistan . After completion basic two years education in village Dabar , moved to district head quarter and enrolled in government primary school Khar Bajaur .


My father was business man and social worker of Bajaur the border district between Pakistan and Afghanistan. Since 1962 Bajaur was an autonomous tribal area ruled by tribal chieftains . Although this area was the territory of Pakistan but the state system was yet not extended to this area . In our village there was no infrastructure i.e. road , school and dispensary etc. Villages in those days were under the influence of different tribal chieftains but fortunately our village was independent from the influence of chieftains. Our village was the village of working class people. All the village residents possessed their own inherited house. There were different powerful groups but the Khan of Khar also called Nawab and Malik of Khlozai were the most powerful tribal chiefs having their armies called lashkar. In local political scenario Our village played very important role and lead the non aligned alliance of different villages of the district. In the request of the non aligned moment Government of Pakistan started intervention . My father Wazir Gul was pro Pakistan active member of the freedom movement .
