|History and Biodata||
The radio stations, Azadi and Mashaal, are two of the most listened to and furthest-reaching in the two countries – the latter only among the Pashtuns of Pakistan. Azadi broadcasts for Afghanistan in Pashto and Dari; Mashaal broadcasts only in Pashto for audiences mainly in Pakistan’s Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province and the tribal areas, aiming to counter extremist propaganda channels there. The two stations are members of Radio Free Europe / Radio Liberty (RFE/RL) funded by the US Congress.
