NWFP)Khyber Pakhtunkhwa..Social issues Social issues Khyber Pakhtunkhwa has the second lowest Human Development out of all of Pakistan's provinces, at 0.607. Furthermore, it also continues to have an image problem. Even within Pakistan it is regarded as a "radical state" due to the rise of Islamist parties to power in the province and purported support for the remnants of the Taliban who are believed by some to be hiding in the province. The Awami National Party sought to rename the province "Pakhtunkhwa", which translates to "Lang of Pakhtuns" in the Pashto language. This has been opposed by some of the non-Pashtuns, and especially from Parties Like Pakistan Muslim League-N (PML-N) and Muttahida Majlis-e-Amal (MMA). The PML-N derives its support in the province from primarily non-Pashtun Hazara regions. In 2010, it was announced that the province would finally have a name and this lead to a wave of protests in the Hazara region. On April 15, 2010, the province was officially named as "Khyber Pakhtunkhwa" when Pakistan's Senate approved it with 80 Senators in favor of the name while only 12 opposed it. The MMA, who until the elections of 2008, had a majority in the Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa government, proposed Afghania as a compromise name. After the 2008 general election, the Awami National Party formed a coalition provincial government with the Pakistan Peoples Party, and supported the Pakistan Peoples Party federal government and in other provinces. The strongholds of the Awami National Party are in the Pashtun areas of Pakistan, particularly in the Peshawar valley, while Karachi in Sindh has one of the largest Pashtun populations in the world with around 7 million by some estimates. In the 2008 election, the ANP won two Sindh assembly seats in Karachi. The Awami National Party has been instrumental in fighting the Taliban.
