KHYBER: Christians residing in Landi Kotal and other parts of the Khyber tribal district have urged authorities to grant them the right to purchase properties and provide better facilities at their residences.

The minority tehsil council member, Malak Arshad Masih, in a letter addressed to high-ranking officials, argued that despite living in the region for over a century, Christians were still not allowed to own or purchase land.
