CHITRAL: The world gender population ratio of male to female is 101 to 100 respectively according to Wikipedia (2021 count). However in Chitral this average is visibly out of proportion. Our reporter in order to have an informal view of the gender count, took walks in the densely populated sectors of Chitral and found that amongst groups of children playing in the alleys, for every two male youngsters aged below seven years, there were four girls of around the same age i.e. a ratio of 1:2 in favour of the girls. This observation was made on different days in different localities of Chitral town. The ratio would most likely be same in other areas of Chitrals upper and Lower.
In these times girls can play an important role in contributing to the progress of the family and the country provided they are given good education and given due space. .. CN report, 30 Aug 2021
