Context / cleanup[edit]

Hi, I just tagged the article and left the cleanup tag in place. It's clear that a lot of good work has gone into this article. I feel with a little cleanup (eg. several non-English parts, such as 'mardan zinda bad .faiz inqelabi mardan Kuwait' stand out that I simply can't make sense of) and by adding some context to the article, it would be possible to make it a lot more useful to people (like me) who are utterly unfamiliar with the area. As always, I'm happy to help in any way I can or answer any questions asked on my talk page. -- Seed 2.0 23:01, 3 May 2007 (UTC)

Languages of Khyber Pukhtunkhwa (Pakistan Census 1998) http://www.pbs.gov.pk/sites/default/files/other/yearbook2011/Population/16-20.pdf

I have tried to talk about the incorrect map being used with everyone, but no one has been able to provide any rationale on why the districts such as Battagram, toorghar, Shangla, Buner, Tank, Karak, etc are shown as Hindko and saraiki speaking when the text states that most of the population their speaks pashto. And also this is a matter of general knowledge that most of the population in the above mentioned districts speaks pashto. Moroever, due to this incorrect and biased map there is a contraditcion between the text and the map being used on the same articale. Therefore, i have replaced this incorrect map with a more accurate one. This will not only make the page more representative of the reallity but will also make wikipedia more reliable.

Cleanup[edit]

I've mercilessly edited this article to remove trivia, especially long lists of supposedly important people and personal opinions. If they warrant inclusion, do it carefully and using reliable sources. Wikipedia does not exist to showcase an area, it is an encyclopedia. Fences&Windows 13:50, 14 August 2009 (UTC)
