Abstract: Abstract After the enforced displacement of around 1.7 million civilians from Federally Administered Tribal Areas in 2014, as a result of Pakistan’s military operation ‘Zarb-e-Azb’ against terrorist insurgencies located in the said area, the military were celebrated, while issues of enforced displacement were relegated to the backseat, with rudimentary charitable actions executed to eulogize the sacrifice of the Pashtuns, already existing on the periphery. This article focuses on Pashtun women who can be described as the marginalized of the marginalized, existing outside the realm of authority and politics, wholly ignored by the state and the military with respect to their absence in repatriation policies and unthought of by the metropolitan nationals and self-proclaimed intellectuals.
