Nargis Afsheen Khattak (Pashto: نرګس افشین خټکه‎; Urdu: نرگس آفشین خٹک‎) is a human rights activist, political leader, and supporter of the Pashtun Tahafuz Movement (PTM).[1] She is also a member of Awami Workers Party (AWP), and leads the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa chapter of Women Democratic Front (WDF).[2]

Social activism[edit]

On 18 January 2019, a video surfaced in which a 13-year-old boy, Hayat Khan from Khaisor, North Waziristan, claimed that Pakistani security forces had arrested his father and brother, and that his family had been facing harassment due to frequent visits by two security personnel to his home when he was the only male with the females at his home. On 27 January, a six-member delegation from Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, including Nargis, Bushra Gohar, Sanna Ejaz, and other female PTM activists, visited Khaisor to express solidarity with Hayat's mother and to also interview the local women about other similar incidents.[3][4]
