  1. The Commandant’s effort to maintain peace in the region is highly appreciable. His meeting with the religious leaders would Inshah Allah be a leap towards building and sustaining peace in Chitral. It would have been even better if selected civil society leaders, political party representatives, and intellectuals were also invited to the meeting. There is a need for all stakeholders and leaders to develop shared understanding, consensus and common approach to sustaining peace in the region.
