  1. Mr. Shahid we are not talking about words and not some how related to grammer , its an issue related to the democratic approch of jui an ji and make an allience for the betterment of mountain community. So for words we need ” surfon nehwa” for its correctnenn but the stage is incoming election.

  2. Mr. Haseeb me and you are not the frame of refference to decide the controverses on the base of offering pray by mulana presided by siraj ul haq. Its not the ultimate event as you stated for showering of flowers on supra mention person.

  3. Mr. Iqbal, I would be the first to shower them with flowers if Mulana Fazl Ur Rehman started offering prayers behind Siraj Ul Haq or vice versa.

    1. Your assertion is completely unfounded both gentlemen have political differences not religious for you to insinuate the opposite is most disingenuous.

  4. Mr.Haseesb and Zahoor definietly your correct on one profile of coin which is mostly based on probability. But the other profile of coin is some how very realistic in nature. What’s democracy,its a western form of governance and having no space in our eastern culture. If our religious personalities got unity its a better achievement “daair ayat, droost ayat”. Then why we object about their alliance for the betterment of muslim community. Its the genetic of our chitrali people that if they lack unity than we object them and if they got unity still we object them. So need of “ISLAH” of our own instead of raising finger on others.

  5. Hypocrisy in its peak.I request the people of Chitral to reject these hypocrites and work toward all inclusive,liberal democratic Pakistan. Our salvation lies here in.

  6. We knew it. They call each other ‘munafaq’; they don’t like offering prayers in each other’s mosques; they think of other’s as agents of so and so; they disown each other for ‘selfdeveloped version of Islam’. BUT when political intetest is before them they unite, and unite only to exploit people’s religious sentiments and get their political interests fulfilled. To hell with your standards. You have corrupted the very religious sentiments of poor people only to get your ‘karobar’ established. I wonder how will you face Allah on the Day of Judgment!!!! You claim to believe in Him, you think that you are doing service to Islam, while what you are doing in practice are what Allah abhors and Islam catagorically prohibits: developing schisms and using religion to establish monopoly and ‘karubaar’. May Allah give you Hidayah before you return to Him!! Ameen!

    1. Danish has old enmity with religious people when he falsely reported the Eid sermon in Singoor some years ago and had to apologize to the security agencies when he was asked to prove it which was aimed at igniting communal rift between the two sects in Chitral living in peace with each other. Later, Mr. Danish also tried to become the Malala of Chitral by jumping into a ravine near his home and booked his opponents with the allegation of attempting to murder him for his writings.
