Lying spread across Afghanistan & #Pakistan is a region called #Kalash. The part of Kalash inside Pakistan is called Chitral.
This region has been populated from over 5000 years by people whose beliefs & customs are similar to those of the #Veda.
#BreakingTheMyths #AboutIdentity
With Indra as their chief deity, called Indr & with idol, temple & Nature form of worship, these ppl live a Vedic way of life.
They r therefore, commonly dubbed as infidels or Kafirs by the Islamic community & #Kalash has also been derogatorily called Kafirstan, land of infidels.
However the people there, still refer to themselves as #Kalash and in recent times, given the tourism potential in their region, their practices, their art and their affable nature, they and their region have started gaining significance as Kalash.
