    North-West Frontier Province:

    The North-West Frontier Province (NWFP) (Urdu: śhumāl maġribī sarhadī sūbha شمال مغربی سرحدی صوبہ) (other informal names include Sarhad, Frontier Afghania, Pakhtunkhwa, Pashtunistan and Pakhtunistan) is one of the four provinces of Pakistan. The majority of the population of the NWFP are Pashtuns, locally referred to as Pakhtuns, and other smaller ethnic groups.

    The province which was founded on April 26, 1902 at Shahi Bagh Garden Function in Peshawar at the instigation of Lord Curzon, the first Chief Executive of the province. NWFP was formed from the areas annexed from the Emirate of Afghanistan who termed it a temporary measure, after the Durand Line Agreement was made on 12 November 1893 at Parachinar. It is now separated and is part of the Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA) as a result of a Royal Commission set up by the Afghan Emirate and the British East India Company-administered India.

    NWFP borders Afghanistan to the northwest, the Gilgit-Baltistan to the northeast, Pakistani Administered Kashmir (also known as Azad Kashmir) to the east, FATA to the west and south, and Pakistani Punjab and Islamabad Capital Territory to the southeast.

    The principal language is Pashto (locally referred to as Pakhto) and the provincial capital is Peshawar (locally referred to as Pekhawar). The Government of Pakistan led by the Pakistan Peoples Party and Awami National Party, to accommodate a demand by the Awami National Party, proposed the province’s name be changed to Pakhtunkhwa.
