A petiton has been filed at Supreme Court Registry in Lahore on Friday challenging renaming of NWFP as Khyber Pakhtoonkhwa through constitutional amendment. The petition argued that name of Khyber Pakhtoonkhwa deprives the non-Pakhtoon residents of the province. The new name caused violent protests in Hazara division of Khyber Pakhtoonkhwa, a non-Pakhtoon region, in which several people lost lives. The plea said that the violent incidents could repeat if the disputed name of the province not changed.
