The Khowar Language Movement (KLM) (Urdu: کھوار زبان تحریک‎) is a linguistic movement in Chitral, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Pakistan aimed at reviving the Khowar Chitrali language, Khowar art, Khowar culture and Khowar literature in Chitral, Swat and Ghizer Districts of Pakistan.[1] The Khow Chitrali people constitute the largest ethnic group in Khyber Pakhtunkhaw and Gilgit-Baltistan, Pakistan though Pashto is the provincial language in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Khowar (Chitrali) language itself does not have an official status in Chitral, Swat and Ghizer Districts of Pakistan. The KLM's ideologies are based on Chitrali nationalism.
