A workshop was held on "portrayal of Pashtuns in Pashto movies" at the Department of Journalism and Mass Communication, Abdul Wali Khan University Mardan.
Dr. Majid Ali Shah, who has done PhD on the topic from a university in Turkey, presented his thesis and findings with the participants.
Speaking on the topic, he said Pashtuns are being misrepresented by own Pashtun producers in the Pashto movies. He said the trend of showing violence and vulgar scenes wrongly represent Pashtuns in Pashto movies.
At the end, Dr Saqib Shahzad, chairman journalism department, thanked the participants and said the department will organise more workshops for students for their learning and capacity building.
Students and teachers from journalism and education departments attended the event.
