“In an exclusive interview for groundreport.com Mr. Mubashir Naz Hindu Minority Councellor in Kohat NWFP Pakistan has said that land acquired for Shamshan Ghat( place where Hindus burn their dead) in Ali Zai area of Kohat was an ancestral land of Hindu Community, till 1953 the same land was used as Shamshan Ghat by Hindu Community in Kohat, Hindus living in near by villages were using this land to burn their dead, but after 1953 Hindu dwellers of near by villages of Ali Zai had migrated to India, so the Shamshan Ghat land was abandoned by Hindus living in Kohat city because of a distance of 20 kilometers, honest people of Ali Zai village did not captured this land it was still unoccupied, when I have initiated process to reacquire this land for Shamshan Ghat through Jirga (Council of Elders) with Darwa Khel tribe of Ali Zai they have rendered their full cooperation and have raised no objection, though it’s a predominantly Muslim area, and the Shamshan Ghat is situated inside the village. I want to construct boundary wall, two rooms and shed on three spots where dead bodies are burnt, shed on such spots is required because to burn each dead body religious practice is that it is kept on fire till three days, when it is burnt completely then its ashes are cooled down by spreading milk on it, in case of rain this whole ritual can be hampered that is why shed is required on such spots where dead are burned. As a councilor I receive hundred thousand rupees per year, I have specified this year fund for construction on Shamshan Ghat, Nazim Kohat Mr. Gohar Saifullah Khan has promised provision of one hundred thousand rupees, total amount required for construction is ten hundred thousand rupees, the amount collected so far is only two hundred thousand rupees. I also want to build a dome in Temple for it funds are also required, two years ago I was elected as Councilor by Hindu minority in Kohat, total population of Hindus in Kohat is 500 families around three thousand people, so far I have employed 22 persons of Hindu community in government jobs, have also provided water and electricity to areas where Hindu population is dwelling, three Hindus are enjoying officer rank in their government jobs in Kohat, wounds of partition are healed up and now Hindus are living in peace with Muslim majority. In Tribal area of Orakzai and Kurram Agencies Hindus, Sikhs, and Parsis are living in peace with Muslim majority, in tribal areas in each village where Hindus are living Shamshan Ghat is available. After 1953 when Shamshan Ghat in Alizai was abandoned by Hindu city dwellers of Kohat, Hindus of Kohat were taking their dead to burn in Attock district or in Teerah tribal area of Orakzai Agency, now with the revival of Shamshan Ghat in Ali Zai village of Kohat Hindu community of Kohat is relieved from pains of taking their dead to burn at places located at a long distance.
