Help Preserve Kalash a tribe in Pakistan for United Nations Protected site-

      Mohammed Bugi Ansari

      Breda, Netherlands

United Nations is celebrating DECADE of Indigenous People from 2004 till 2014-A PETITION TO THE Sec General and all Heads Of States-

Please treat this as an urgent appeal to support the historic Kalash people of North Pakistan. Our aim, with your assistance, is to have the Kalash territory declared as a "World Heritage" site.

The Kalash (or Kalasha) is an ethnic non-Muslim group that exists in the Hindu Kush mountain range located in the Chitral District of North-West Frontier Province of Pakistan. Although their numbers were quite significant before the 20th century, they have however, gradually dwindled over the past century. This is very unfortunate and is in large part due to the fact that they have been assimilated by the larger Muslim majority of Pakistan. Today, more than half the Kalash people have been made to convert to Islam thus losing their ethnic and historical originality in the process.

It is, therefore, absolutely vital and imperative to save and protect this ancient culture and, therefore, we implore you to assist us in having the Kalash territory declared as a protected World Heritage site.

Thank you.Mohammed Bugi-(bugiandassociates@gmail.com)We are now at YouTube,follow the links below http:www.youtube.com/watch?v=6kkQS7qe7YY

      I have another Thing That I must Mention Here, If you Give them AIR they
      will be hell bent to get Publicity,I have lost a Gem of a Person Salmaan
      Taseer, whom i Know since Childhood,PLUS have a Look at This,,,From Lal
      Meri on the SHA page: "Hello, You often post about the Kalashas from North
      Pakistan. Very very sad news. The talibans have issued a video with an
      ultimatum : convert to Islam or die." The Kalasha (what remains of them)
      follow their Indigenous religion in the high mountains of Pakistan; their
      Afghan cousins were forced to convert at gunpoint over a century ago. The
      Ismailis are a Shi'a sect, mainly in South Asia today, who have been
      persecuted as heretics. "The Taliban's 50-minute long video released on
      February 2 warns the Kalash, who are thought to number only 3,500, to
      convert to Islam or face death. “By the grace of Allah, an increasing
      number of people from the Kalash tribe are embracing Islam and we want to
      make it clear to the Kalash tribe

      A Pakistani woman in a rural village, an American woman doing fieldwork, and a baby. This digital story by Wynne Maggi was made in a workshop facilitated by the Center for Digital Storytelling in August, 2011 in Lyons, Colorado. It deals with the conflict that arises when an anthropologist comes face to face with what she could do versus what she should do, the potential for crossing the line between just being an observer and entering into the life of the observed.

    6. An Old Letter to elected Member of Minorities, Mr Byram D Avari 1989-

      Mohammed Bugi Ansari
      Petition Organizer

      Dear Sir,
      Further to my verbal discussion with you l am submitting a letter of proposal for the preservation of the Kalash people: their ways and their culture.
      As you may know, Sir, I have been involved with the preservation of the Kalash on my own personal level since 1979.
      The influx of the Afghans has in many ways interrupted my work.
      Now there is hope of eventual repatriation of the Afghans.
      My suggestion is that Medical Mobile Units that are to be set up for the Afghans at the N.W. border.
      This could be utilized to get proper medical aid to the Kalash.
      Knowing how inadequate existing Medical facilities are for the Kalash this would be a tremendous help to them: at some later stage, in collaboration with MR. KARL JETTMAR.

      //The Quran says about religion freedom: “Let there be no compulsion in religion” (2:256). “To you be your way to me; mine” (106: 9). “Let him who will, believe, and let him who will, reject” (18:29). “Therefore, [O Prophet] give admonition, for you are one to admonish. You are not one to manage affairs” (88:21–22)

      The prophet of Islam (PBUH) received in Medina in the year 10 AH (631 CE) a delegation of 60 Christians from Najran, a territory near Yemen, about 450 miles south of Medina. They were received in his mosque, and the prophet (PBUH) allowed them to pray in the mosque, which they did facing east following the Byzantine Christian rite.// New Age Islam.....

      I know the process for nominating a site for UN World heritage site is lengthy; I’d do it it myself if it didn’t require first that the host country recognize Kalasha value. It doesn’t seem to me that many Pakistanis are capable of valuing non-Muslim cultures, which is a terrible form of blindness. But PTDC, an organization of educated and worldly, experienced professionals, has the skills and vision to nominate them. Before Kalasha culture goes the way of the Bamian Buddhas, protect them from the colonial, imperialistic tyranny of those who wish to “develop,”convert and exploit them. Because truly, the two remaining valleys are worth their weight in emeralds, rubies and diamonds.

      Dear Sir/Madam:
      I tried to submit my suggestion on your website, but it did not appear to be working properly, so I am writing to this alternative address.
      My favorite place in Pakistan are the three valleys of the Kalash people. I believe that the government of Pakistan should recognize them as a UN World Heritage Site. They should be protected from Islamization and assimilation before their culture is gone forever. The process of nominating a place for UN protection starts with the national government recognizing that place’ s unique cultural traditions. I know PTDC recognizes their touristic and economic value, but I’m worried that tablighis, missionaries and other prosyletizers are destroying them. The first valley is already ruined by mosque construction and loss of traditional architecture. I urge you to protect the other two from the cultural depradations of the majority.

    17. The festiwal Chawmos of the Kalash Tribe in Pakistan,

      Mohammed Bugi Ansari
      Petition Organizer

      The festival Chawmos is celebrated when the month called “Chawmos mastruk” starts. Chamos is also called “ghona cawmos yat” which means, the great memorial cawmos festival. The Chawmos festival is celebrated without using any musical instruments in the valleys Rukmu and Mumuret, whereas in Biriu valley they use the musical instruments. It is a series of celebration. This festival is celebrated after the Kalash finish all their fieldwork and store all the sources of their basic needs. By this time of the year cheese is stored fruits and vegetables and grains are stored. When every thing gets home then this festival is celebrated because this festival requires many offerings. And every ceremony in this festival has its own traditions, foods and songs. For every ceremony there is a specific measure of grain that has to be made into flour. It is the last festival of the year.https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=588410267879348&set=a.345511048835939.85006.345490542171323&type=1&theater

      Mohammed Bugi Ansari
      Petition Organizer

      Julia Roberts It's a great eye-opener for me..such a beautiful sharing indeed..and who says Western women are more liberal or Kalash women lesser? I think they enjoy a more free life than us..they can make their own decisions to sustain or annul a marriage accordingly.I envy this crime-free culture and the beauty of these descendants of Alexander the great armies,,their colorful festivals like Joshi..amazing life..all like Born-free..or must I say Born-to-be free..has really captured my heart.... it is a remotely sensitive civilization which is so ignored and there's so much to know and learn from these beautiful Kalash people..the calm and serenity in days of today when so much war-crime is everywhere,,this region is definitely in safe protection in many ways still..unless attacked with bad intention by war-mongers..I pray this tribe to live long and safe..Amen
