Details of Aftab Ahmad Khan Sherpao

Aftab Khan was educated at Edwardes College, Peshawar and Pakistan Military Academy, Kakul, Abbottabad. After passing out from Pakistan Military Academy with 34th Long Course in 1965, he joined Armoured Corps in the Probya''s Horse Battalion, seeing action in both the ''65 and ''71 wars. Over a period of 12 years he rose to the rank of Major.

It was after the unfortunate assassination of his elder brother Hayat Sherpao in a bomb blast in 1975 that Aftab jumped into the political arena. The then Prime Minister of Pakistan Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto asked him to take an early retirement from his military career and afterwards nominated him as Pakistan Peoples Party’s (PPP) provincial vice-president. Aftab Khan was thus a stalwart of the original unified Pakistan Peoples Party from Northwest Frontier Province (NWFP) of Pakistan.

After the death of his political mentor Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto he wholeheartedly supported his daughter Benazir Bhutto and her struggle against the military dictatorship of General Zia-ul-Haq. He was a key political figure of Movement for Restoration of Democracy (MRD) from NWFP. It was in 1988 elections to the Provincial Assembly that he orchestrated the downfall of the establishment backed Pakistan Muslim League (PML) and became the Chief Minister of the province. He took an extra-nationalist line to appease the nationalist forces, hostile to his party and thus broadened his political base in their stronghold areas. He was once again elected as the Chief Minister of NWFP in 1994. However, in the mid nineties he developed serious differences with Benazir Bhutto when Maj-Gen Naseerullah Babar mistakenly suspected his role in undercutting him through allotment of party tickets in Nowshehra. Finally leading to the formation of his own faction of the party called PPP (Sherpao). He fled Pakistan to Britain after the military came to power in 2002 amidst charges of corruption against him. Eventually he returned prior to the 2002 elections and after striking an electoral alliance with the religo-political parties he was elected to both the provincial and national assemblies and his party performed relatively well amidst the rout of his former party and the Muslim league in the frontier.

Mr. Aftab Ahmad Khan Sherpao, a great pukhtoon leader, fighting for pukhtoons rights from PPP's platform. PPP's is a proper alternative party to the ANP (which has become extremely unpopular) and PPP Sherpao is the best option especilly for pukhtoons in KPK & for all the people throught the country. Aftab Sherpao has great amount of talent, experience, excellent administrative & political skills. I challenge anyone to show me any other government that has done more developments & good work in any part of the KPK especilly & throught the country particularly, than him (during his two terms as Chief Minister & as a Federal Minister). So InshAllah he will be the first Pukhtoon Prime Minister of Pakistan, next in future. PPP's Zinda-Bad PSF Sherpao , International Islamic University Islamabad
