The scholars of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa are known throughout Pakistan for their commitment to rationality and theology; thatís why students across Pakistan travel to the Kyber Pakhtunkwa Madaris to study logic, philosophy, and theology. Despite the mere availability of facilities and lack of financial resources, these theologians published several books, but many still exist in manuscripts. The biographies and services of these scholars are still in the shadow of ignorance due to their geographical positions and location in remote areas.
