Peshawar (Pakistan), Apr 12 (ANI): The Pashtun resistance movement in Pakistan's Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province, which saw a massive participation by the tribal youth, indicates that young Pakistanis are the change they want. It has attracted the disillusioned Pashtun youth, including a sizable number of young women - who were mainly associated with the Awami National Party (ANP) and Pashtunkhwa Milli Awami Party (PkMAP) - across the country and abroad. It has also become popular among the emerging professional and middle-class of Pashtun society. A new red ethnic cap - popularly known as Mazari cap - and the word 'Pashteen', a pronunciation of Pashtun in Mehsud dialect - became popular among the Pashtun youth - mainly because of PTM founder Manzoor Pastheen. Men and women from Pakistan and Afghanistan are sharing their images wearing the cap to show solidarity with the PTM movement.
