Product description

ZARGHUNA KARGAR was born in Kabul in 1982. After Soviet troops forced out the government -- in which her father was minister for information -- and civil war erupted across Afghanistan, she and her family sought refuge in Pakistan. Zarghuna completed her education in Peshawar in Pakistan: she studied at a refugee university and attended a journalism course organised by the BBC. Then in 2001 her family sought asylum in the UK, and she started working for the BBC World Service Pashto Section. She joined the team on the ground-breaking programme Afghan Woman's Hour, as producer and presenter in 2004, until it was discontinued in 2010. Zarghuna now works on current affairs programmes for the BBC Afghan Service, frequently covering topics relating to women's issues. She lives in London.
