Afrasiab Khattak is a former student leader, Pakistani politician, writer and prominent human rights activist. He has been the president of Human Rights Commission of Pakistan (HRCP).

Afrasiab Khattak is from Kohat in southern North-West Frontier Province. He was an active leftist politician during the 1970s and 1980s. He spent many years in self-exile in Afghanistan in the 1980s, due to his strong opposition to General Zia-ul-Haq's military rule.

After his return from Afghanistan, Khattak contested the general elections from Karak but lost to Aslam Khattak. Afrasiab Khattak joined the Human Rights Commission of Pakistan (HRCP) in 1989, and served as the Vice Chairman of HRCP in Frontier Province, for three years - he is also one of the founders of the Afghanistan Pakistan People's Friendship Association. In April 1999, he was threatened by extremist factions for demonstrating against "honor" killing in Peshawar. On May 2, 1999, he was unanimously elected Chairperson of HRCP for a three-year-term. Re-elected in 2002, he resigned from the post after he rejoined the Awami National Party. He is also a known constitutional expert and a practicing lawyer of Supreme Court and High court.

He was elected in 2006 as the provincial president of the Awami National Party, leading the party to provincial victory in Pakistan's elections of 2008 and became the Peace Ambassador to Govt. of NWFP. He played a vital role in peace process between Taliban and Govt. of NWFP but all his efforts were sabotaged in typical Pakistani Politics.
