  1. It is indeed a great news. Sh Maqsood ul Mulk sb has everything what it takes to become a leader in the field of tourism. I have worked under/with him and know for sure that although he runs a tour business but keeping Chitral too close to his heart. It would be correct to say that his love for Chitral, its people and culture comes first. As a person he is humble and approachable. The country needs someone like him who not only has the relevant experience but also loves tourism. He is one of those who do not like publicity as such which makes you like him more. He has a vision for the development of all types of tourism in the country be it expeditions, cultural tours, sightseeing etc. I remember his late respected father once sharing his views on how to develop religious tourism in Chitral for Japanese during cherry blossoms. He talks on similar directions such as developing winter tourism by organizing winter games in Kalash valleys and of course skiing. I believe we are lucky that now we have two most influential and able sons of Chitral are leading tourism sector in the country. Many congrats to shahzada sb.


  2. Glad to know that an enthusiastic and energetic civil society activist has been put at the helm of affairs in the tourism sector. We hope too much. May God be with you.
