Kalash 27 February 2011: Many girls and boys converted to Islam since 2009. The rate of conversion among Kalasha females and young boys to Islam is subsequently increasing. This is mounting the despair among the small population of 3350 Kalasha people who are struggling to maintain a unique cultural existence.
