Baleem, a legendary village in the Laspur valley, is the land of intellectuals and knowledge-loving people. This promising soil has produced doctors (PhDs, MBBS), MPhils, army officers, engineers, chartered accountants, government officers, lecturer, advocates, highly qualified school level educationists and religious personalities.
Baleem is also known for its glorious past, as we find five important personalities in the history of Chitral like Ayaz, Muhammad Rafi, Balandi, Dudar Bakhdur and Bades, who have had honour of being chieftain (which in local parlance is called Haakim) during the era of the princely state of Chitral.
It may be necessary to mention here that Haakim Ayaz belongs to Col (R) Ikramullah Khan’s family, Haakim Muhammad Rafi and Balandi belong to Dr. Inayatullah Faizi’s family.
Baleem has been the land of great personalities right from the beginning and has maintained its pristine and enviable legacy.
