afghan Suleiman Khel Politics, Conflicts, Alliances history

The Suleiman Khel have taken part in a number of major revolts in Afghan history. During the 19th century, they rose against a British base in Ghazni in 1841 along with the Andar and Taraki (both Burhan Ghilzai), and in 1855 they and the Sohak (Burhan Ghilzai) are recorded as leading an uprising. In 1924 the Suleiman Khel and the Ali Khel (also Burhan Ghilzai) fought alongside the Mangal tribe in an ultimately unsuccessful revolt against Amir Amanullah Khan. This uprising was prompted by his Western-oriented reforms. Just five years later they spearheaded another revolt against Amanullah, which eventually succeeded in dethroning him; after a brief interlude, Nadir Shah seized the throne.
The Suleiman Khel have had a longstanding rivalry with the Kharoti tribe in which they have historically had the upper hand.Many tribesmen still joined the militant organization Hezb-i Islami Gulbuddin (HIG), however, because despite Gulbuddin Hekmatyar's Kharoti background, because he lacked much of any roots and influence within the tribe.
They have also historically allied with the Hotaki, a Ghilzai tribe of the Turan branch. The Hotaki are one of major elements of the Afghan Taliban, and perhaps not surprisingly, Suleiman Khel tribesmen are heavily involved in the movement, even accounting for most of the recruits in Paktika Province according to its former governor.

General. Mohammed Daud Daud, was the police chief for Northern Afghanistan and the commander of the elite 303 Pamir Corps

General H.E. Mohammed Daud Daud, محمد داود داود, (also known as General Daud and Mohammed Daud) (1 January 1969 - 28 May 2011) was the police chief for Northern Afghanistan and the commander of the elite 303 Pamir Corps. He was considered one of the most effective and important opponents of the Afghan Taliban.
Gen. Daud studied engineering in college. After graduating college in the 1980s he joined the forces of Ahmad Shah Massoud against the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan. After the retreat of Soviet troops and the defeat of the Afghan communist regime, Gen. Daud remained in Takhar province of Afghanistan. Ahmad Shah Massoud had ordered him to guard northern areas and to keep his forces out of the capital Kabul. When the Taliban took power in Kabul, General Daud served as a leading military commander of the anti-Taliban United Front under the command of Ahmad Shah Massoud, which later spearheaded the defeat of the Taliban. In October 2001, Gen. Daud was directly responsible for retaking the city of Kunduz from an Al Qaeda-Taliban alliance.
After the fall of the Taliban regime, he was appointed a Deputy Interior Minister for Counter Narcotics in Afghanistan. His campaign against poppy cultivation was successful in several provinces such as Logar, Ghazni, Wardak, Paktia, Paktika and Panjshir.
In 2010, he was appointed police chief of 8 northern provinces. Daud commanded all Interior Ministry forces in the north, including his own elite force of police commandos, Pamir 303. Considered one of the most effective opponents of the Taliban he was a high profile target. Gen. Daud was assassinated by a Taliban suicide bomber on May 28, 2011 in an attack in Taloqan, Afghanistan, in which six other people also lost their lives. Before his assassination, Gen. Daud was quoted as saying:
"After Mawlana Saidkhaili [Abdul Rahman Saidkhaili], I accepted to be killed while serving my people. I say this every morning when I leave my home and I am ready to be killed."
—Gen. Mohammad Daud Daud, 2011

Pashto Sports naiza bazi football hockey cricket

Traditional sports include naiza bazi, which involves horsemen who compete in spear throwing. Pashtuns living in the northern regions of Afghanistan engage in Buzkashi, which is a popular central Asian sport played by riding on horses. Wrestling (Pehlwani) is often part of larger sporting events. Cricket is largely a legacy of British rule in Pakistan and India, and many Pashtuns have become prominent participants, such as Shahid Afridi, Imran Khan, Misbah-ul-Haq, Umar Gul, Yusuf Pathan, Irfan Pathan, Junaid Khan and Younis Khan. The Afghanistan national cricket team is dominated by Pashtun players.

Football is the other most popular sport among the Pashtuns. The current captain of Pakistan national football team, Muhammad Essa, is an ethnic Pashtun from the Balochistan province. Another top player from the same area was Abdul Wahid Durrani, who scored 15 international goals in 13 games and became the captain of the team. The Afghanistan national football team includes a number of Pashtun players. Other sports in which Pashtuns participate include volleyball, basketball, field hockey, buzkashi, bodybuilding, martial arts, boxing, and others. In recent decades Hayatullah Khan Durrani, Pride of Performance caving legend from Quetta, has been promoting mountaineering, rock climbing and caving in Pakistan.

Cultural definition And pashtun culture

The religious and cultural definition requires Pashtuns to be Muslim and adhere to Pashtunwali codes. This is the most prevalent view among orthodox and conservative tribesmen, who refuse to recognize any non-Muslim as a Pashtun, even if they themselves claim to be of Hebrew ancestry as some tribes do. Pashtun intellectuals and academics, however, tend to be more flexible and sometimes define who is Pashtun based on other criteria. Pashtun society is not homogenous by religion: the overwhelming majority of them are Sunni Muslims, with a tiny Shia community (the Turi and partially the Bangash tribe) in the Kurram and Orakzai agencies of FATA, Pakistan. Pakistani Jews and Afghan Jews, once numbering in the thousands, have largely relocated to Israel and the United States

Pashton people history

Pashtuns (Pashto: پښتون Paṣ̌tun, Pax̌tun, also rendered as Pushtuns, Pakhtuns, Pukhtuns), also called Pathans (in Urdu: پٹھان and Hindi: पठान Paṭhān) or ethnic Afghans (in Persian: افغان) are an Eastern Iranian ethno-linguistic group with populations primarily in Afghanistan and northwestern Pakistan, which includes Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa, Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA) and Balochistan. The Pashtuns are typically characterized by their usage of the Pashto language and practice of Pashtunwali, a traditional set of ethics guiding individual and communal conduct. Their true origin is unclear but historians have come across references to a people called Paktha (Pactyans) between the 2nd and the 1st millennium BC,who may be the early ancestors of Pashtuns. Since the 3rd century AD and onward, they are mostly referred to by the name "Afghan"
During the Delhi Sultanate era, many Pashtun emperors (sultans) ruled the Indian subcontinent. Other Pashtuns defeated the Safavid Persians and the Mughal Empire before obtaining an independent state in the early-18th century, which began with a successful revolution by the Hotaki dynasty followed by military conquests by the Ahmad Shah Durrani.Pashtuns played a vital role during the Great Game from the 19th century to the 20th century as they were caught between the imperialist designs of the British and Russian empires. For over 300 years, they reigned as the dominant ethnic group in Afghanistan with nearly all rulers being Pashtun. More recently, the Pashtuns gained global attention during the 1980s Soviet war in Afghanistan and with the rise of the Taliban, since they are the main ethnic contingent in the movement. Pashtuns are also an important community in Pakistan, where they have attained the presidency and high positions in the military, and are the second-largest ethnic group in that country.

The Pashtuns are the world's largest (patriarchal) segmentary lineage ethnic group. According to Ethnologue, the total population of the group is estimated to be around 50 million but an accurate count remains elusive due to the lack of an official census in Afghanistan since 1979. Estimates of the number of Pashtun tribes and clans range from about 350 to over 400
