    Dear Editor,

    I agree with the guidelines given to the readers. This should be a very mature platform and I, personally, don not agree with the definition of freedom of speech to write anything abusive or beyond morality.

  4. Taj Hussain says:

    Rightly said its need of the time, as we are having diverse opinions, and interacting in pluralistic manner

    I would suggest Parim Time should use some more verifiable means of identifications like, web authentication of all email address and also keep personal information like Office/residential Address and Phone numbers of contributors/commentator

  5. Anita aziz says:

    it is indespensible to maintain our norms alive,for this reason what so ever you introduced i feel it is good, readers of PT has been increasing rapidly which comprises sisters as well, to use imoral language is so insulting for this plat form, i appreciate your ever single step, that is in best interest of our values and readers

  8. Ali Asghar says:

    A set rule and regulations or guidlines are very neccecary in every organisation and profession, its keeps on track, I also suggest that you should develop membership form on your web to make each comentator as part of your family/team.

  9. fizzi says:

    ……….somehow contradictry with the views of the EDITOR because if you and your team have made this web for news or others and are also asking for comments than i think criticism must be there.one thing more one should not expect every single word soft and humble,criticism must be there and i don’t think that people commenting may use that much harsh and abusive language. how can you consider it a family when all your personal matters are not only read by the wakhis but also all over the world.

  10. Rahmat karim says:

    well this would be really marvlious if there shoud be some rules to be set for all contributers and commentators as well.
    One more thing, critisiam based on postive way resolves issues, so we all have to think for posative way and to respect the others comments.
    I am agree with you!!!

  11. amjad says:

    Dear Noor
    Let us be open and let us open our hearts. problems are created when one is not allowed to express himself freely. if one is limitised and set into boundries he can tolerate for a certain time but will burst out at last.
    let the people say what they want to say if one is abusing me and am deserving ot then it is ok. i will never mind i should tolerate and mend my self. but all this should be for a better cause.

  14. Naseer says:

    The basic upbringing or School and teacher is our mother, We are what our mother n father teaches us at home and than we come out with that to outside the home to see meet friends, and all animals, trees, etc so our parents, our friends and our teachers and class mats the total sum up becomes our personality , habit, language , abusing is basically a way of communication which we get from the area we are, and we think or percept that this languge should be used during joke, angry time or during fighting.
    So doent matter we had our phd, or master, our inner language through life will be what have been grounded in us by the society we came from.

    So that is basically not a human language to me human language is very nice , full of love , full of openness and hapiness and comfort and wisdom sorry for using many and.
    so guys be happy and leave the poor language to aside and pick the good ones even during fighting joking and at any time or at all the times be polite and forget the naming words wash them from the screens and see the differnce in yourself.

    ok guys good luck

    Agreed! These are the standard rules…

    But more responsibility on the shoulders of editors and moderators, you may receive distinct comments from readers, but you have to be more careful while bringing out these comments. Truth only truth, but some times even truth can become threats for national or regional interest. Its difficult job dear.But so far you guys are doing well …

    Why is it Pamir News, wheres as, it, mostl, speaks about Gojal Hunza….

  17. Shamim Ali(USA) says:

    Dear Noor,

    I am agree with you. We are known as well-mannered community throughout the world.

  18. Sanad Yaafta Naqid says:

    @ Sajad Haider

    Why is JANG called JANG.. when it talks about Pakistan most of the time?

    Why is DAWN called DAWN?
    Why is Daily Mail called Daily Mail?
    Why is New York Times called New York Times.. when the entire globe is discussed there?
    Why is Hindustan Times called Hindustan Times when the entire globe is discussed there?
    Why is “the Hindu” called “the Hindu” when every religion, in fact the the entire world, is dicussed there?

    Pamir is a good word. It has a wider scope and in future it PT can start discussing the entire region around Pamir Mountains…. as the trade routes open and cultural ties strengthen.

    Bravo Pamir Times… well done… keep it up. Don’t fall in the trap of Hunza-Gojal syllogism. As far as you represent Gojal and Hunza… and the rest of Gilgit – Baltistan… you don’t need to worry about the name :D

    The rules are perfect and ofcourse editor has the right to remove, alter or replace words which are abusive in nature. I think you better use your scissors of editing and allow only those words or phrases which qualify the standards of PT.

    Areed though. but what if the soclled PT editors and moderators reflect their select mentality in the name of rules & regulations. why are you afraid of free speech and history? Must there be a skeleton inyour cubord and please revisit your past before becoming ruling editors and moderators! every piece of your wakhi comment represents a hidden hate messaage directed against certain people and their region. even then you are out to teach ettiquettes to people who had been blesssed with historical civilization and court facility. you are putting the cart before the horse.

    Dear Mr. Sultan Abbas Saheb;

    Please differentiate ,

    1. you are writing a paper not discussing with your 6father by siting around fire at your home. Make your statement concise and meaningful without attempting to show your strong verbal English to the readers.

    2. Try to differentiate the economic situation between Hunza and London, where billions of dollars and Euros business.

    3. Try to come out with substantial solutions that will benefit the people of region, otherwise the aim of giving to give you such an opportunity to study at IIS London will go in ruin.

      the reason is that there is no any updates of gojal!…….
      Are you willingness to work as a volunteer for PT from passu.
      Indeed it is easy to say ya but a very difficult task to give time on daily basis.
      Blindly criticize is very easy but working actively is its opposite.

    Gojal valley inflicted again by devastation of natural disaster.

    January 4, 2010 by natural disaster a huge pieces of rocks hit the valley of Gojal and blocked the river and KKH road and changed it into cul-de-sac.

    This is not a new phenomena, this kind of rocks disaster appeared for the last several years and will continue further. As in 1852 a horrific rocks of debris blocked the river from the right bank at the same place (Sarat). Overloading 500 meter high material in the river formed 45 kilometer long dam. And the river water inundated in the entire valley. The inundation took three years from Sarat up to Khyber village. After spilt down the flood water wiped out villages and pieces of lands. The long river way areas from Hunza down to Karachi severely affected by its flood water. People left their home valley and fled away. Today this dire devastation repeats the continuing disaster of its past.

    We (the people of Gojal) sway your attention towards this horrible seen. Where the government of Pakistan, local administration and the so called elected representatives and media from Gilgit Bultistan do not take it a serious matter. This devastation not only swallowed life of human being in Sarat but deeply affected the entire region. As the details are here.

    Total village in the entire valley existed 27.
    Total population 25000
    Number of houses 3500
    Number of shifted houses because of inundation 14
    Cutting of trees 8000
    Total population severely under threat 7000

    Apart from the above loss, down ward the whole region along with its property like villages, agriculture land, houses KKH road, bridges and power houses are severely under threat.

    The so called elected representatives still kept mum on this serious issue, while in the election time they come with their lords for begging votes but this time they are in their bounded web. They do not have the feeling of people’s reaction on their perishing.

    The area that posses an important role geographically, politically and economically between China and Pakistan. And it is the biggest Tehsil in Gilgit Bultistan. Instead of playing an important role, today the life of people of the area become paralyzed. They are rudderless, no one is responsible to release them from this worst catastrophe. Water is rapidly rising. The property of people are submerging in the water. Their food store left empty. Their source of transportation ceased because of lack of fuel. Their business flopped. And people are completely apprehensive about the dire consequences of water inundation. And even if the delay prolonged then it would be very difficult for them to cultivate their crops/vegetables because of non availability of seed fertilizer and fuel. They will live for no option for their survive lance.

    The prolong disruption of KKH may potentially impact the local economy, particularly the production of early cash crops like potato (Rs 344-413 million per annum), the retailing and Sost border town business (Rs 150-250 million), international border trade(Rs 1.2 to 3 billion) disrupting work on widening of KKH by Chinese engineers and workers.

    The Gilgit Bultistan local representatives are drudging to do some thing to save their skin, but the decision makers show their reluctance to hear them. The southern minister from government side visited the areas and except soothing the people they did nothing against their coming difficulties. The helicopter service is not sufficient and it does not make the people relent from their coming further devastation.

    This time the government must clear its plan and strategy to release water and construct the road to link the way. Further delay will create more difficulties. The people don’t know either the government is going to take any action or not, or what does the government think? These kinds of questions are lingering in the mind of depressed people. Vain hope and promises could not satisfy the affected population.

    The huge debris reported to be 273-288 feet high at the river point and 246 feet high at the right bank. The length of the debris from the main block to the toe up stream is reported to be 2-2-5 kilometer long and over 62 feet in height

    As per the report the above key challenges for the government is certainly an expensive task, but if the government lacks the technical and human resources then support from Chinese government or any other international expertise should be requested and deployed to timely release of water from the dam and lowering the rise of water potentially threatening the KKH, Chinese bridge and directly affecting over 75 households and indirectly over 300 households of Ayeenabad, Shishkat and Gulmit.

    Instead of being a dispute area the people of Hunza and upper Hunza (Gojal) always supported Pakistan and China. Since 1969-70 Hunza state closely coordinated with Pakistani and Chinese government to allowing Hunza valley for the construction of KKH to relive the silk rout friendship with China. And even today the people of valley are very supported with Chinese CRBC in widening the KKH. The local communities are providing them land and raw material to the contractors. Working with them any time if the needed.

    There for on this calamity the Pakistani and Chinese government should put their efforts and resources to release water to mitigate the depression of affected people who are very near to meet more destruction. Continued river and road block for the next 2 to 6 months impact the local economy and the livelihood of people mainly disrupting agriculture input supplies, cultivation of potato and other early crops leading to crop and income loss for poor farmer.
    This also impact the Sost border town business, transport sector business, international border trade with China and affecting the annual development priorities of the government and the development agencies.

    hunza is my love, although i have been there just once but can never forget the views, the peaks , the landscape and the most important the people of this valley are the most generous and kind in the world i must say, i amuzes me how they treat u with kindness and are always ready to support you when ur visiting hunza, i am going to have annual leaves from office in a week or two and i am planing to visit my fellow people soon…i miss hunza very much and i am also very sad about the lake event that took place and so many lost lives…inshallah i hope and pray that the lake may end soon and slowly or may be if we can find a permanent but a smaller and a safe lake there, may it will of some good to the people of this area…..ameen

  88. Dr Jamila Khatoon says:

    Tell the honourable leaders who are so furious about the feelings of Pakistan regarding Pakistan.I fully support those people of Hunza who have highlighted the discrimination hunzukuz are facing .The respectable leaders should play their role in addressing the core issues with the lake issue and relief work on the top of the list.Pakistan government wants relief money from foreign countries by putting us through all this trouble.We dont share anything interms of culture/language or tradition.Pakistan government has always suppressed us and will continue to do so in future.Either give us equal rights or leave us in peace.

  89. akbar qadmi says:

    I agree 200%. i wish if you could have done this.

  90. Abdulkhalique Badrizaman says:

    Dear editor I would like to request you if you have pictures of Kaghan valey,Mansehra,oghi,darband pls view.Thanks regards.

  91. Fayaz Rahim says:

    I have had the good fortune of visiting this beautifull valley back in 2001. I with my family travelled from Lahore right upto the Kunjarab Pass. Of all our domestic travels this was most beautifull and unforgetable trip. Hunza is a unique valley surrounded with snow covered peaks on all sides. You wake up in your bed and have a beautifull view of the Rakaposhi peak in full view right thorugh your hotel window. When we visited Kunjarab pass it was the month of July and it was snowing there. Our meeting with Chinese sightseers was also very memorable. I could go on and on describing the beauty of the region.

    The attitde of the government towards the Attabad disaster is realy deplorable. Just look how Mr Baber Awan is desperate to distibute money among the Lawyer associations but these same ministers, when they visited Hunza, went there empty handed. Such are the priorities of the our “AWAMI” Govenrment.

    Only God can help our country and people of the disaster areas.

  92. we appreciate sincere efforts of the pamirtime which update us about new developments.

  93. ATHER WAHAJ says:

I have visa for China and I want to take my family to China via KKH to Kashi. Could someone help??? Thanks

  96. Nizar (alvi) says:

    Long Live Pakistan! Long Live PT!

  97. Dr Jamila says:

    Time to wake up from years of long sleep of ignorance.Time to understand we are Hunzukuz first and than anything else.Time to understand the way our culture,our language and our scholars are suppressed.Time to realize the discrimination we are facing.Time to think about accepting the diversity within our own communities and unite and become a strong force to crush the enemies.Time to understand we are Hunzukuz.

  98. Muhammad Ibrahim says:

    I want to know what kind of enemies Dr. Jamila has perceived and need to face by all Hunzukuz. I am afraid such a kind of language is not praise worthy from an educated person like you.

  99. Anayat Baig says:

    What do you mean by “we are Hunzukuz” Dr.Jamila????
    U are talking about the removal of discriminations and you yourself separating the reigonalism???
    Oroon ko nasihat..khud miyan fazeehat ????
    Wah…. what a nice strategy????

  100. Jamila says:

    Dear Anayat Baig,I am educated thats why i can see the discrimination which probably you cant percieve.Have we been given equal rights as any othe Pakistani gets,even within our small communities Punjabi and Khoja culture is taking over.Our so called leaders are either bowing for Pak govt officials or religious leaders.How much literature do you have in your local languages? and how much of that is freely being allowed to be published and read?.In our festives and celebration we are singing things in other languages and feeling proud about not promoting our own language.Instead of sticking to healthy nutritious local foods we have changed our taste and prefer to eat unhealthy food served in other parts of sub-continent.Openess and respepect for diversitry doesnot mean you have to loose your identity.Mr Anayat Baig I am proud to be Hunzukuz and part of Northern areas and proud thatI am in a foreighn country but my children speak their mother tongue and know about their roots. Every language and race is respectable and every person has the right to keep his identity.Give me one good reason why we should not stick our our identities?Give me one reason why our men should die for a country which is not even giving equal representation in national assembly?Give me one good reason why I should respect those leaders who want my and your children to practice their religion in a foreighn language which is not Arabic nor their mother tongue?Give me one good reason why we should let our beautiful languages die which are so unique and special? Open you eyes and heart and you will see what I am trying to explain.

  101. Jamila says:

    Let me explain one thing to my friends from other parts of Northern Areas. What I meant by Hunzukuz was both upper and lower Hunza and when I say people who discriminate us ,I mean people outside Northern areas. I am not refering to people from northern areas in any negative way I am woriied about influences from other parts of Pakistan.Pakistan…a country which i am not sure whether is my country or not? because if it is my country than I should have representation in Pakistan National Assembly.

    • abu-ur-raheem says:

      hay dear jamila,
      i am a punjabi but i dont think so that i am a punjabi when i say that i am a pakistani. same wise we have think at broad level. we are just pakistani
      whether we are pathan,blochi,sindhi etc.we have to reach above this discrimination then we’ll be true pakistani.
      the second thing is that you said that “Have we been given equal rights as any other Pakistani gets” you are right at vast extent.
      dear i have to explain that we are also the victims of our leaders. we ain’t having the basics needs too.they are doing according to their want and don’t get opinion of local people. we people have true love for you.we want to do something for your people but we local people have not enough power.
      As you said that you are an educated people then it will be very easy to explain to you
      why don’t you think that if our leaders are right they can provide us equal rights?
      why don’t we think that we should be very careful while casting vote so that right person should be placed for right leader?
      we don’t we think that we are now educated we can fight for our right(it takes long time but success will be ours )?
      we can’t we encourage to our youth?anyways
      Dear this is open debates anyway, let me tell you my feeling about your areas.
      “you area is heaven on earth.you people are enjoying the real nature.i love your people cos you are simple honest and hard worker.”
      my prayers are always with you.pardon me if there have been any mistake.thanks
      you can feedback at
      info.raheem@yahoo.com

  102. haider balawar says:

    salam
    dear editor I m shawked by your statement on home page about the nationalist parties of gilgit baltiatan specially about the BNF. BNF is he patriotic party of gilgit baltistan and u call them the culprits of raw.I think u r feeded by the anti gilgit baltistan element.for your kind information 70% eaducated youth of gilgit baltistan is affliated with BNF.so you should not use such kind of language about the patriotic nationalist party of gilgit baltistan.think on it

    Freedom of speech but no miss use of freedom of speech.
    These are ethical principles not rules.
    I agree with the moderator.

  104. this is thousand of time i am saying noor bahe to publish ma web site through PT but dont show any interest about that … what will i think about this act…
    there is link of passu in PT and there is no any info about the village even every bodies know that passu is the place where tourist want to come and famous for its beauty and hospitality…
    the only thing which i want from PT is that just add this link on heart of Gojal.net …….
    we are updating this site chronologically….

  105. Jamila khatoon says:

    The recent incidents in Hunza is very unfortunate. Hunza was always a place of moderators who lived long,who loved music and who never indulged in crimes.Unfortunately as the height of our youngsters is reducing with each new generation our minds are becoming narrower and as the complexion of our people is becoming darker so are our hearts.The rest of Pakistan has not gained anything other than bad reputation in the world and unrest in the country what is our youngsters going to gain by following the foot steps of munafiq.

  106. The old look of PT was better, this one is not that much attractive, please change it back to the old style..

  107. Thanks for the change… Now it looks good.

  108. where this pamir actually is we are from chator khand iskoman we have comman boarders with broghal,wakhan,gijal,naltar and yasin but non of the agencies is appreciating us we have great postures,mountains,lakes,rivers,glaciers,wild animals and plants. we need to advertise our region. please i am requesting you all to come and atleast aone time visite our region i will guide as well as serve you people………………….

  111. muhsin hasan says:

    hi everybody…..
    pamir times has explicitly grown up into a plateform which speaks the ideas,the thoughts,culure of gilgit baltistan…………but it shouldn’t be confined to majorly a particular area i.e District or city….it should tell about the corners of region vehemently,and should share the voices of its all inhabitants……..
    regards,,,,,,,,plz do share some blogs informatons about the education in GB….

  112. Very nice to see the Headline theme installed and the blog quality has really improved in terms of the interface but the attraction has been disturbed a little i think but with the passage of time reawders will get used to it. I really miss that header, i loved that.
    Moreover the widgets at the bottom are not properly arranged and the big calender makes it a little ugly. That is a feedback from my side .
    thanks for making it better for us ,best of luck team :)

  113. and yes i forgot one thing, increase the number of post on home page display to 20 or 15 from 10, readers will have more to read. :) just a suggestion.

  114. Patrick says:

    From various international press article; i am aware that CHINA is playing a far bigger role in your region. But why your website is not showcasing those activities in any of your articles.

    It is not a state secret any more. Pls do the balance reporting.

  115. Ali Qurban says:

    Tag of war on Headquarter of Hunza/Nagar District
    Every one of Gilgit Baltistan’s so called assembly member of Hunza Nagar district is pulling the rope of district headquarter to his part. People become blind of their vested interested. Common interest dominated by the individual, sectarian, ethnic and religious boundaries. Here human easy access and rights are completely avoided and trampled. What a strange suggestion comes from Mohd Ali Akhter that Arespu Dass should be the headquarter of Hunza/Nagar district. Sumayar, Asqurdass, Shayar and Arespu is not the matter of suggested areas. Easy access for the remote or sequestered people is the issue. The district headquarter is not for the village, it is for the people whose access should become easy and workable for Shingshall to Chipurson and Hisper to Khiszerabad.
    The representatives from each village should be consulted, then with a consensus they have to reach at proper decision. Here no one is all in all. These representatives who become decision maker are incidentally from the people not from any superstitious power. District headquarter is not the property of few so called representatives, this is the property of people. They must consider the sensible people of each village. There is no room for one man decision. If the present government allows it then take the irrational decision.
    Ali Qurban

  116. safi baig says:

    it is a great tragedy what has happened in hunza vally, our country and specially the politiciens and administration is 100% currupt to come out from this kind of situation there is only one situation remain is (REVOLTION) by elimination of all currupt people then peace can possible . i am shocked about the action taken by the YAZID police on innocent people of hunza. i share my feelings and anger regarding what has happen. courage and courage for further protests.

  117. Aaliya says:

    Dear All,

    I would like to say that we are nothing under natural disasters. We can’t defense ourselves from these adversities because we know that these catastrohes may happen anytime. We can’t neither hide ourselves in a corner in order to keep our life safe. However, a murder can never ever be natural because we are the ones who contributed these adversities. We involve ourselves and think that nothing will happen, but later we found that a worst thing has happened. This all is because of our nature. We let ourselves free. We have already crossed boundries of life. Therefore, we should keep oursleves in a certain limit so that we could protect our life, our home,and our country….
