Dr. Ayyaz Mallick, York University Toronto, speaking during EFSAS Webinar on the rise of PTM


Dr. Ayyaz Mallick, who is based at York University in Toronto, Canada, specifically focused on the role of urban and rural spaces in the emergence and impact of PTM. Regarding the emergence of PTM, Dr. Mallick stated that the 2018 killing of Naqeebullah Mehsud in Karachi, a city spatially distant from the Pashtun Belt, sparked outrage in the (Pashtun) periphery before spreading to the urban core of Pakistan via the presence of young Pashtuns that had earlier moved to urban spaces, meaning that the protests obtained a spatial character that reflects the transforming spatial experience of the Pashtun community.
