    Hunting is a manly practice and the part of Chitrali culture. The government allows it and issues permits. Least birds are hunted in Chitral compared to other plain areas. Yes, Chitralis spend a lot and make more effort in making ponds etc.
    Who are those people to ban it, have these people turned vegetarians.
    In Hindumat flesh is prohibited. If they’re feeling pity for birds and animals they shouldn’t eat chicken, beef and lamb. All are animals. Another modernist cry is also on the run that Muslims slaughter thousands in the Eid UL Azha that is also a cruel practice.
    In the name of pity and western branded modernization, one should not lose the theologies of Islam. Riverbeds are the only hunting places in Chitral. The decision must be reconsidered.

    Not only Balach but hunting of ducks and pidgeons, rather all animals, should be banned in both the districts. Killing birds and harmless animals for pleasure is a cruel trait of human beings which should be discouraged whenever and in whatever way possible.
