Shahzada Farhad Aziz claims to be pioneer of paragliding in Chitral

By Zahiruddin

CHITRAL: The president of Hindu Kush Association for Paragliding (HIKAP) Chitral, Shahzada Farhad Aziz has claimed to be the pioneer of paragliding in Chitral who introduced flying in the area in the year 2004 when no one knew about the feat.

Addressing a press conference here, he said that due to the potential of paragliding in the area due to its peculiar topography and the tendency and penchant of the youth for paragliding, the number multiplied to many times within a short span of time and association was established to bring them in a single platform.

Flanked by other office bearers Syed Sajjad Hussain Shah, Meraj Hussain. Sajid Zia, Bilour Khan and others, he said that the association has rendered a valuable service for the promotion of paragliding in the area which further promoted tourism while the consummate flyers of Chitral were invited to exhibit their feat in the festivals throughout the country.

Mr. Aziz said that some members of the association were expelled from the association by its general body as per bye-laws on account of their unwanted activities detrimental to the promotion of the organization but they are now waging a war of propaganda against HIKAP to tarnish its image.

He termed the allegations leveled by the members of the splinter group formed out of expelled members as totally baseless and warned that legal action will be taken against them.
