Considering the kind of news Pakistanis get to hear on a daily basis, we long to hear any news that is even slightly good for the country or its citizens.
The most recent feather in our hat has been added by Armed with Faith, a Pakistani documentary that has made it to the Emmy’s.
Yes, you read it right. THE EMMY’S.
Let’s hear it straight from the horse’s mouth, shall we?
What is Armed with Faith All About?
Armed With Faith follows the men of the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Bomb Disposal Unit (KPK BDU) to the front lines of the war against Al-Qaeda and the Taliban in Pakistan.
The lawless province of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa — considered the gateway for terrorists from neighboring Afghanistan — is the backdrop of the film. The battle for control of this porous border area remains critical to the stability of Pakistan and global security.
Should Pakistan, a nuclear power, fall into the hands of terrorists, the entire world is at risk. We witness firsthand the dangerous struggle undertaken by the men of the KPK BDU to protect their country against the Taliban threat in the land they both call home.
Now that a Pakistani documentary has been nominated for the Emmy’s, we hope that we also win the award.
All the best to Geeta Gandbhir, Asad Faruqi, and the rest of the people behind the film!
