Nishan e Haider Holders Names & Pictures – HEROES OF PAKISTAN

Aakra __اکرا  #AAKRA 
About three thousand years ago there was a city named “ Aakra ” near Bannu. This ancient city was full of life and had its own civilization. People of Bannu believe that due to the sins and misdeeds of the people of Aakra, Almighty ALLAH destroyed the city. It has been said that Almighty ALLAH poured stones instead of water from sky. As a result of this “rain of stones” whole of the city was destroyed.

Some say that it was destroyed by volcanic lava. There are others who think that some ancient invader might have looted the city and killed its population. One of them may be true or perhaps all of them untrue. It is the Almighty ALLAH who knows better.

The ruins of Aakra are present at a distance of a few kilometers from Bannu in Baraat, a village on 250 feet high hill. They have encircled an area of 133 acre.

According to the belief of local Hindus, Baraat was the founder of Aakra, the brother of Ram chandar. But that's wrong Because Ram Chandar and Barat we…

History of the KASHMIR conflict

A brief history of the Kashmir conflict
The Kashmir dispute dates from 1947. The partition of the Indian sub-continent along religious lines led to the formation of India and Pakistan. However, there remained the problem of over 650 states, run by princes, existing within the two newly independent countries. In theory, these princely states had the option of deciding which country to join, or of remaining independent. In practice, the restive population of each province proved decisive. The people had been fighting for freedom from British rule, and with their struggle about to bear fruit they were not willing to let the princes fill the vacuum. Although many princes wanted to be "independent" (which would have meant hereditary monarchies and no hope for democracy) they had to succumb to their people's protests which turned violent in many provinces. Because of its location, Kashmir could choose to join either India or Pakistan. Maharaja Hari Singh, the ruler of Kashmir…

گناہ کبیرہ
