    Dear Editors!

    I have been closely monitoring your online “Pamirtimes” over the past few months. It is encouraging to note that you have maintained its quality as well as the flavour of freshness and updated information.

    The readers in the Northern parts of Pakistan in general and the inhabitants of Hunza valley are appreciative of this initiative by our youngsters. You have really made us feel being part of the Global Village.

    With best regards,

  4. Bravo Pamir Times team ! From a modest start you have really excelled to this level of quality, objectivity and speed.

    There are new hieghts to gain, as the knowledge society and the ‘new economy’ is engulfing us like a GLOF of the Passu galcier you have reported recently. In order to be relevant in the knoweldge society, the youth, are the key drivers of change, as you have the energy, motivation and zeal to test and apply new technologies, new knowledge and new methods to restore human dignity and improve livelihood opportunities for the disadvantaged mountain communities.

    Knowledge is power. We need to take it to the grassroots levels and transform the society. The youth are the torch bearers. We need to create opportunities for the youth to unleash their enormous potential to bring change.

    We are with you.

  5. you are doing a tremendous job and we are proude of you. best of wishes for your future endeavors.
  6. It is a great initiative. I did visit the site first time. Thanks to Mr. Gul Baig and Mr. Baig Ali to introduce me to the site. It provides insight about issues from our roots.

    I am certain apart from sharing relevent news, it will encourage young people to write stories and articales- will enhance writting skills which is most needed and is desireable in professional life.

    Best Wishes

  7. You are providing a wonderful service to Hunza in particular and to the moutain people of Pakistan in general. Wish you success in your endeavors. The Daily Pamir News keeps us updated of day to day developments in the region. Suggest you to add some more to it like addition of a header for:

    1. Heroes and Pioneers, in which on a weekly basis a legendary personality of the area should be introduced (whether s/he passed away or alive but retired) including his/her efforts and services for the area he/she rendered.
    2. Our professionals, in which a brief introduction should be included of our prominent and meritocratic individuals whom are representing a role model for our youth.
    3. Shining Stars, This header should be set for meritorious students of the region.

    I will glade to provide any support in my capacity for the wonderful team of Gojal Net and daily Pamir News.

  8. Dear Aziz Karim

    Thanks for the worthy suggestions. We will try to highlight personalities through Pamir Times (Our monthly magazine).


  9. This is really incredible the way Pamir Times and Gojal.net have emerged as source of interaction among the youth and intellectuals of Hunza (in particular). I am so glad to read views and comments of our seniors like Brig (Retd) Hisamullah Beg, Amin Beg Sb, Baig Ali Sb, Darjat Sb, Ahmed Jami Sakhi Sb and many more over different local and national issues. The Site Administrators are praiseworthy to capture the attention of these intellectuals and students. I hope, this platform will retain the trust of our educated segment, achievers, and continue spreading the light of real education leading towards a knowledge society.

    All the Best

    Dear Moderator

    It is a great opportunity to have some documentation and virtual material on your site.It is the most quoted site for the Northern Areas else where in the world as I have some experiences of such kind here in Germany and Switzerland with the Civil Society Organizations which work on mountanin regions have amazingly introduced me your site.

    I am happy as well as proud at the same time the so called remote and mountanin village people are able to advocate their problems with such an international standard .

    My friend Mr.Andy from Basal,Switzerland has suggested me to register the name of Chief Editor of the site for CNN Heroesand we are collectively trying to collect the informations in this regard.

    Best Regards

  12. Dear Editor and team; Pamir Time is becoming our home and huge source of connectivity with our area, people in Hunza, the leaders and youth. It is just wonderful to visit this website, particularly, when you are so far away from your beloved ones. However, the beauty increases when all the people from different level of ages interact with each other, encourage and give constructive feedback for further improvement. So this forces us to believe that our young generation goes in a positive direction, and we must support them in taking the leading role for an integration of new blood with old to develop a sustainable approach towards development.

    Good luck to each one of you.

  13. Sajjadullah Baig | January 20, 2008 at 9:35 pm
    Your endeavours are commendable not just for delivering such accurate and timely information, but also because of the precious time you spend on collecting and editing such stories, despite of no monetary gains. Being a student, sacrificing your time for an activity of such communal significance is indeed laudable. You are indeed the true bastion of voluntary service. It strengthens my belief in our tradition of voluntary service and our culture of sharing. Personally I visit the site regularly and enjoy reading the news and views, it helps me keep in touch with my people and the place that I call Home.

Again i salute to yours’ effort and am ready to share my constructive suggestions if any in the future.


  16. I have no words to comment on the tremendous job done by the Paamir Times Team. It has proved itself as a strong source to bridge the gap amongst our youth all across the world. It gives us a feeling of promixity to our Home Sweet Home.

    well done. God Bless you all.


  17. Knowing about ‘GOJAL NET’ and ‘Pamir Times’ indeed brings a sort of contentment that youngsters have been thoughtful enough to contour ways through which connoisseurs and practitioners from different walks of life could not only disseminate knowledge, but also contribute to the process of knowledge generation.

    Wish you Luck

    The Pamirtimes team has done an excellent job. Well done and keep it up.

    Here is a correction urgently required that Gilgit Baltistan is not Part of Pakistan so Please aviod using the term Northren Areas for Gilgit Baltistan.

    Northern Areas is a meaningless word .This words has designed to demolish our History and national Identity.

  23. Dear Readers

    Mr. Parwana is absolutely CORRECT that Gilgit Baltistan is not Northern Areas of Pakistan. If it is Northern areas of Pakistan it is also Western Part of India,Eastern Part of Afganistan ,Southern parts of Chian. Gilgit Baltistan is not part of any country, constitutionaly. It is a separate political entity, having unique Identity ,culture and History.

    it is great to know that the finally guys from gojal are bale to have an online voice via this piece which is yet to become a representative online paper of Hunza if not of the whole region. efforts must be taken to braoden the sphere of news out of gojal steppes where it is real that life is misearbale for poor gojalis but their co-villagers living in cities do som,e work to end isolation of the remaining lot in gojal that is busy in growing potatoe and nothing otherwise.
    good effort indeed and one hopes it may serve the purpose for which it has been launched.

  25. First of all let me congratulate the editorial team of Pamir Times for working so diligently to create and maintain such a good quality blog. It is a great effort to bring important news from Northern Areas and present it to diverse audiences around the globe. Let me share few thoughts here. Constructive social and political change can only be introduced through a healthy and informed debate, discussion and understanding of key issues involved. Hence your blog is an important effort in evolving a dynamic and engaged society. While, objective presentation of news, and reporting of various socio-political developments is always welcome and it is, apparently, a good way of keeping people informed of things happening back home. But what is really essential is a critical and intelligent reflection on those stories and news-events so as to advance the cause of justice and positive social change.

    Our whole region has been kept in the depths of darkness for the last many years by various ruthless political forces that have stifled the growth of an enlightened political conciseness, thus leaving our people politically and socially suppressed. While our area was known for classic tranquilly epitomised in such mythical ideas as Shangrila. But, these dark forces have actively fomented and introduced issues of violent sectarianism, parochial communalism, and have also encouraged divisions along ethnic and linguistic line. The youth of Northern Areas should grapple these questions head-on and in the process we should seek to reclaim our authentic heritage and essential values of brotherhood, dignity and egalitarianism.
    Should Pamir Times commit itself towards addressing these disturbing questions and face them boldly, then I can safely assert that you are beaming the rays of light into the darkness of caves in which our people have been kept for so long.

    Thanks for becoming the first high tech and modern, speaking mechanism to the people of Gojal Hunza.
    I think it is a place where everyone should fell that they are all moving to solution and development. We have many potential and can get more than any nation around the world. Dear editors I have few suggestions, which are according to me, need to be addressed, due to time.
    Introduce different topic for discussion, but with suggestion, current situation, history, and most of all remedy for different matters, about the area, next take all the literature forwarded to you and then make one final presentation. This will give more charm to PT.
    History of different part of Gojal from Chipurson to Shishkat. Should be bring forward, we have few history books available but are either written or are speaking the mind of an alien. Most of our oral lituratuire is lost due to the death of many intellectuals . So PT can take the inisiative and bring forward all the lost history of the area. PT can find or give the topic to all the readers to give the history of their village family for example, How many families are living there in one village , where did they come form do they have any idea about the past family names , origin? What is the present educational rate of the village?
    What you will get , social, political, history . who were the key player, what is the differences between the past and the present . what is the massage from the past.
    I hope Im clear in my point.
    The best from Nazeer Ali Khan

    I am glad to see your great efforts of initiating gojal.net and Pamir Times. Please accept my heartiest congratulations on these brilliant achievements. Definitely it will bring awareness among the mass in general and assist students and professionals in particular. As the time and space did not allow us to go visit frequently to our homes, towns/villages to interact with our family members, friends, villagers and co-villagers to share joys or distribute sorrows but your website made it possible to meet our nears and dears. I really appreciate your great effort and voluntary work. Keep it up

  44. Dear Team Members of The Pamir Times,

    Accept my heat felt gratitude and congratulations for the successful launch of Pamir Times and sustaining its publication and quality reporting. Indeed, your endeavors to start publication of online news paper and magazine are unique in the Area which you are representing and it was an urgent requirement of the time.

    I have been reading your publication for quite some time and it gives immense pleasure to look at the progress that has been made over the past two to three centuries in our area. The progress ranges in the areas of a modest economic stability, social sector that includes education, health, and collective communal efforts. However, the areas where people of NAs (Karakorum) lack a significant progress are intellectual contribution in knowledge construction, Political knowledge and activities; and Business development among other.

    Although, all important segments of society are very much interlinked and dependent on each other, but to create a clear understanding of the functional elements of society it is important to highlight each component individually and measure its progress. Keeping this in view, the publication of Pamir Times is a valuable contribution towards knowledge construction and intellectual development of the people of Karakorum which will foster the pace of development in politics, business, social and economic spheres.

    Finally I would like to suggest a gradual expansion of the scope of the publication towards a broader geographical and communal inclusiveness.

    With best wishes,
    Abbas Ali

    Dear PT Team & members,

    I feel really pleasure to see all your efforts for providing timely information and updates on the events taking place on daily basis, specially the Chut Ghost and Sighez Kore, Ghulkin news were given enough coverage.

    I have read all the comments from my colleagues and friends but none of them highlighted the issue of your funding and financial management, I mean what is the source of your income?

    Because all of you are working in a professional manner and in the capacity of voluntary, we all know that every thing has a cost in the shape of time, communication, report writing, downloading informative materials, scanning & editing the pictures etc. So who pay all the above expenses?

    Every one appreciates your efforts and role but we also need to share the Cost of providing Services, let us know what we can do as reader.

    I do agree with Manzoor & Sher Karim, we can call rather we should call our region as Gilgit-Baltistan or some other suitable name instead of calling it as ‘ Northern Areas’, as we have nothing to do with so-called Talibanizaion and fanaticism.

    Thanks PT:

    a) “for becoming voice to the silent (voicless) and suppressed peoples;
    b) for trying to become a hub of collective/representative voice of the deprived and suppressed commuuniites;
    c) for becoming white papers and white boards for the writers and for people fond of writing on different issues;
    d) for becoming key informant in providing true information of different issues;
    e) for creating awareness on different issues of the region; and
    e) for endevoring towards genuine goals.

  54. Thank you Mr Zafar Iqbal for the appreciation.

    The question related to funding source (s) of Gojal Net, Pamir Times, Pamir News Blog, is very important, indeed.

    Internet is said to be the cheapest medium of communication because the costs of doing it are really low. Pamir News Blog, has been established using the free site option offered by an internet company called “wordpress”. Anyone can make a blog for free and enjoy the basic facilties offered. However, to get a more customized version of the blog, we need to pay. So far we are just using the basci free options and, thus, need no financing, at all.

    The reporters use their own resources, purely on voluntary basis. The pictures, almost always, are taken on digital cameras so there’s no need of scanning. They just have to be emailed to us. The cost of using internet is also paid by the volunteer reporters.

    Gojal Net, being a full fledged website, needs around ten thousand rupees per year. This money, for the past three years, has been paid by Zulfiqar Ali Khan, from his own pocket, purely on volutanry basis.

    Thus, we are managing an effective and vibrant entreprise of information that doesn’t need a lot of financing.

    We salute the volunteers who use their own means to keep the community updated. It is this spirit of participation and civic engagement that keeps us moving forward.

    We have not asked for any financial assistance from anyone because we don’t need it, for the time being – the costs being very low. In future, however, when the need arises, and we decide to expand there are different options that can be exploited.

    The biggest capital needed to run this entreprise is time, knowledge and an aspiration to make a difference. Of course these have their own costs but our volutneers are bearing the costs, very generously, in an untiring manner that has stunned many.

    I hope that I have answered your queries about the source(s) of funds of Gojal Net, Pamir Times and Pamir News Blog.

    Once again thank you for showing your willingness to assist us, in covering the costs. But, as explained above, the costs are minimal, so far.

    Chief Editor

  55. Dear Noor Muhammad,

    Thanks for the reply, once again I appreciate and applaud the role of your team members and all the volunteers for their tremendous role being played for the readers of Hunza and Gojal.

    I feel very proud because we receive update news on daily basis; this helps me to have a part of the society irrespective of our presence over there.

    I pray to Sarcar MHI for the material and spiritual success of all your team members and volunteers.

    Very recently, I was invited to participate in National Policy Dialogue focussed on Sexual and Reproductive Health of Adolescents and Youth. To my astonishment, I came to know that YAN(Youth Advocacy Network) has established its district chapters in Ghizer and Skardu.
    I would request this spirited forum to get the membership of YAN and get maximum benefit for the youth empowerment in terms of their capacity building, skills based education any many more..

    I would be more than happy to assist you in this regard.

  65. It makes me too glad to comment here. Being a resident of Northern areas, one has to confess that politician have had always been shitting the way to come Islamabad and go back to their huts in Gilgit Baltistan. I think the youth is the best to present the real picture of our land. I healrtily appreciate the team work

    of Gojal net, hopefully soon it will be able top cover up the whole northern areas.
    Best of luck

    Dear all members,

    very appreciable for all the members of gojal.net and pamirtimes news who are working honestly to promoting our culture in developing way. we hope our wakhi language will come forward.

  78. Dear Zulfiqar A khan & Noor Muhammad,

    I know you might have been thinking about me and my views on your initiatives. Frankly, I have been hearing lots of good things about the Pamir Times and your own roles in running it on a voluntary basis – true to our traditions, but it was only last week when I took some time to glance through the website and noted it as a matter of fact.

    Believe me, I was pleasantly surprised to find out about the quantity and quality of the ideas, information and knowledge that the PT and its other segments have been generating on a regular basis and for so long. I really felt ashamed of my ignorance about the great services that you people have been rendering to the educated youth of the NAs in general, and of the Gojal valley in particular. For all that I can only say THANK YOU and Congratulations on a job being done very well.

    I really appreciate that as a team, you are inspiring so many local youth through your ideas, skills and deeds. I sincerely wish you success, leap and bound, in your endeavors. I believe success mainly depends on; clarity in objectives, capability in situation analysis, capacity to receive, retain and deliver, credibility in ideas and deeds, consistency in approach and belief and continuity in mission, vision and action.

    Resilience is what I see in your action and deeds. Journalism by its character demands; sound judgment, steadfastness, patience and sacrifices, which you have amply demonstrated over the period of time since you have been in this venture.

    This much for now, hope to be in touch on a regular basis.
