The Cleric said that they would not allow any such development in Chitral town unless they are taken in confidence about it. They said the Hotel and diagnostic center should be established in an area which has Ismaili majority population. He said that if the plan was carried ahead they would protest and besiege the Provincial and National Assembly. He warned the district administration not to create situation like what happened in 198, by allowing these developments to happen and should consult the local religious leaders on all such matters. He also objected to the allowance of opening slaughter houses by Ismalies in Garam Chashma and demanded their closure.
