    Noor Khan was a postgraduate student studying towards his MA in Political Science when his life was altered forever by a drone strike on 17th March 2011. On that day, Noor's father, Malik Daud Khan, an esteemed tribal leader, was presiding over a jirga, a traditional meeting used to resolve disputes in the tribal areas of Pakistan. Over 40 elders were attending the jirga that day when a drone hovering overhead launched four missiles, killing Malik Daud Khan and 40 others.
