Pakistan: Kalash valley culture at risk from Taliban
Taliban violence in north-western Pakistan has reached Chitral, threatening the unique culture of the Kalash minority, many of whom claim to be related to Alexander the Great and his ancient Greek army.
The Kalash valley, in north-western Pakistan, is home to a tiny number of non-Muslims in Chitral. The Kalash have unique customs, including the consumption of alcohol and the worship of several Gods.
The Chitral population is estimated to number between 3,500 and 5,000.
