In Chitral all the people from different sects have the respect for each other since long. Whenever any issue raised in Chitral it was due to those people who want to get political benefit. We hope that the people of chitral whatever sect they belong to will not let religious victimization in the name of politics.
Excellent step taken. Chitral and people of Chitral need it the most.
Excellent. Mr. Shahbaz Ahmed has now to shoulder the heavy responsibility that Chitral and people of Chitral need the most. Liaquat
