Federally Administered Tribal Areas

The Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA) (Pashto: مرکزي قبایلي سیمې‎; Urdu: قبائلی علاقہ جات‎) is a semi-autonomous tribal region in the northwest of present-day Pakistan, lying between Afghanistan to the west and north, and the provinces of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa to the east and Balochistan to the south. The FATA comprises seven agencies (tribal districts) and six frontier regions. The territory is almost exclusively inhabited by Pashtun tribes, who also live in the neighboring Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Afghanistan and are Muslims by faith. The territory is governed through the Frontier Crimes Regulations.

Famous quotes containing the words areas, tribal, federally and/or administered:

    Adults understandably assume that the level of verbal proficiency a five-year-old displays represents his level of proficiency in all areas of functioning—if he talks like an adult, he must think and feel like one. However, five-year-olds,... belie the promise of adult-like behavior with their child-like, impulsive actions.
    Dorothy H. Cohen (20th century)

    What is this conversation, now secular,
    A speech not mine yet speaking for me in
    The heaving jelly of my tribal air?
    It rises in the throat, it climbs the tongue,
    It perches there for secret tutelage....
    Allen Tate (1899–1979)

    If men could menstruate ... clearly, menstruation would become an enviable, boast-worthy, masculine event: Men would brag about how long and how much.... Sanitary supplies would be federally funded and free. Of course, some men would still pay for the prestige of such commercial brands as Paul Newman Tampons, Muhammed Ali’s Rope-a-Dope Pads, John Wayne Maxi Pads, and Joe Namath Jock Shields—”For Those Light Bachelor Days.”
    Gloria Steinem (b. 1934)

    Lying very still and thinking very little is the most inexpensive medicine for all the sicknesses of the soul, and when administered with good intentions it grows more and more pleasant with each passing hour.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)
