TALIBAN STATE FORMING IN PAKISTAN. PAKISTAN CEDED AUTHORITY TO TALIBAL IN "FEDERALLY ADMINISTERED TRIABAL AREA"(FATA)AND IN "NORTH AND SOUTH WAZIRISITAN"
PESHAWAR, Dec 13: While it has been exactly a month since the NWFP assembly passed a watered-down version of the controversial Hasba bill, the provincial governor still has a week to decide whether or not to sign the bill into law.
