Here is a quote from the text:

Swat became part of Pakistan
in 1969, the year my father was born. Many Swatis were unhappy about this, complaining about the
Pakistani justice system, which they said was much slower and less effective than their old tribal
ways. My grandfather would rail against the class system, the continuing power of the khans and the
gap between the haves and have-nots.
