Chatarmas Religious Festival of the Kalash Community

epa02505131 Kalash tribal girls wearing traditional costumes take part in the annual Chatarmas (Chomas) religious festival of the Kalash community, in Kalash valley, Pakistan, 23 December 2010. The local Kalash tribe, a non-Muslim people worship deities similar to ancient Greek gods and goddesses. The Kalash religion and the Greek religion have a common origin. Both came from some proto-Indo European religion which was carried along with the Indo European language when the Chitralis (people of Chitral valley near Kalash) first got there some 3,000 to 4,000 years ago. Their ancestry is enveloped in mystery and is the subject of controversy. Despite the patterns of an ever-changing world, they have sustained their ancient cultures and traditions.
