    Pak journalist wins Yale award :pakistan:


    WASHINGTON: Paksitani journalist Imtiaz Ali is among 18 Yale World Fellows 2008 announced on Friday. Ali, of Geo Television, who also files for the Washington Post, has been reporting on the Taliban, Al Qaeda and extremism in the tribal region along the Pakistan-Afghanistan border and the NWFP. “Imtiaz Ali’s dangerous work brings to light events unfolding on the frontline of the war on terror,” the citation says.

    The Yale World Fellows Programme aims to build a worldwide network of emerging leaders and to broaden international understanding. Every year, the programme selects 18 “highly accomplished” early to mid-career men and women from government, business, the media and civil society organisations representing countries across the globe for a four-month leadership program at Yale University.

    BBC Pashto Service
    Peshawar, Pakistan

    Study focus: Role of the news media in the growing divide between the West and the Muslim world since 9/11.

    Ali was born in Mardan, Pakistan and earned a bachelor degree in law and master's degrees in journalism and political science from the University of Peshawar in Pakistan. Ali got his start in journalism as an education reporter for the Daily Khabrain in Pakistan in 1993.

    He has worked for Pakistan's largest selling English daily, The News International, the country's most prestigious daily Dawn, and the Peshawar-based daily Khyber Mail. He joined the BBC Pashto Service in 2001, reporting on the Taliban in Afghanistan after the September 11 attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. He also produces a weekly radio feature called "The Frontier Report", which focuses on the daily emerging political, economic and social issues in Pakistan and its adjoining tribal areas along Afghan boarder, also known as Pakistan's Wild West. His work also appears in newspapers outside of Pakistan, including the Daily Telegraph in London and the Globe and Mail in Toronto.

    His coverage of terrorism-related news has included reporting on the Pakistani madrassa system of religious schools, and in the Pakistani tribal belt, widely speculated as a possible hide out of Osama Bin Laden.
