Another Kalash policewoman, Jamina, conducts raids against criminal elements. The women police officers representing the Kalash community generally perform their duties wearing their traditional dresses but during VIP movements and raids, they wear police uniforms.
The provincial police has within its ranks Sikh, Christian and other minority communities and a reserve quota for minorities is maintained.
Wazir Zada, a first time MPA from the Kalash tribe appointed on the reserve minority seat, says the police department is proud to include people of the Kalash tribe.
“The population of Kalash valley has reached 4,500 and I am extremely thankful to K-P police for including our community in Chitral police,” said Zada.
The lawmaker further stated that as the people of Kalash are well aware of their traditions and culture, it is easier for the police department to amicably solve the community’s issues through their own members serving in the department.
My personal security guard is also a member of the Kalashi community, he said, vowing to extend full support to Chitral police and the security forces of Pakistan at all levels.–Express Tribune
