Description

Montreal, Quebec

Part two of a five part co-series with cartoonist Ed McNally about spending time in Swat, a unique state in the western region of Pakistan. The article profiles 83 year old Miangul Gulshazada Abdul Wadud Khan (Badshah Sahib), founder of the State of Swat. He describes him as a lone ranger who fought many battles to establish his state. He fought against his cousins, the Nawab of Dir, and the British. There has been plenty of cultural changes and bloodshed over its history. Additionally, there was "no income tax, no business tax, free education at all levels including university, free hospital care and dental treatment.”
