  1. Congratulations for opening a new “ATAHK” in Chitral but unfortunately the name is not good. I don’t understand what is the meaning of Athak. Whether it is a name of some popular thing or any village. I think it will not lure the attention of viewers at all. We should have selected a popular name of electronic media according to our culture and tradition.

  2. Sultan Wali Khan sahib, Atahk is not the name of a TV channel but a water channel in Mulkhow tehsil which is pending construction since the last 35 years.

  3. Good news should not go un-noticed. We people of Chitral are no doubt fortunate to have been hearing many such good news of approval of mega projects for Chitral like roads, bridges, motorway/express way from Chakdara – Chitral, Depots of Gas, Power Houses and now Atahk irrigation channel with 200 megawatt power house, Chakdara Chitral Gilgit road for CPEC, Hospital, University and many more. These projects when constructed shall definitely make our beautiful and peaceful Chitral and the people of Chitral more beautiful, peaceful and prosperous. We should be thinking positively with request to our representatives to follow them up at their end on regularly basis. We are sure that our representatives are strong enough and know where to go and when to go and how to speak for its start.
