The Government of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (Pashto:خیبر پښتونخوا, Hindko/Urdu: ) is based in Peshawar, the provincial capital of the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Province, Pakistan. It is one of four provinces of Pakistan, located on both banks of the river Indus. It stretches from the Himalayas in the north to the deserts in the south, where it is bordered by the Baluchistan and Punjab provinces. On its western flank is the rugged terrain of Afghanistan, which is accessed via the historic Khyber Pass through the mountains of the Suleiman Range. Its borders touch or are close to those of China, Tajikistan and the disputed territory of the state of Jammu and Kashmir in the north.
Famous quotes containing the words government of and/or government:
“I do not hesitate to say, that those who call themselves Abolitionists should at once effectually withdraw their support, both in person and property, from the government of Massachusetts, and not wait until they constitute a majority of one, before they suffer the right to prevail through them. I think that it is enough if they have God on their side, without waiting for that other one. Moreover, any man more right than his neighbors constitutes a majority of one already.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
“It cannot in the opinion of His Majestys Government be classified as slavery in the extreme acceptance of the word without some risk of terminological inexactitude.”
—Winston Churchill (18741965)
