The 6th census of Pakistan is scheduled from March 15, 2017, without any room for religions and local languages.
Kalash is a religious minority of international fame. Kalasha and Yedgha are the endangered languages of Pakistan. Khowar, Shina, Burushaski, Balti, Gowri and Torwali are unique Indo-Aryan languages haunted by scholars around the world.
The 6th census will be a failure until it documents data on the minority religions and languages of Pakistan.
Civil society organization of Kalash, Khow and other languages and minority communities of Chitral, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Gilgit-Baltistan have sharply reacted to the census failure and requested the army chief and the chief justice of Pakistan to intervene and review the census format to include all religions and languages, including Kalasha and Khowar, in the national documentation.
