        ..until someone knows you are a westerner, calls you an “Infidel”, kidnaps you and if you are lucky, release you after collecting a hefty ransom or, like in some not so fortunate cases, (late Daniel Pearle ), severe your head.
        Most Pakistani people are good but the few that count (and matter) have converted it into a “s#1t hole, unfortunately!
        Do you see any tourism to Pakistan these days? Do you not see the various advisories that countries put out for their citizens asking them to avoid travel to Pakistan?

    • Farhan Ali

      Thank you Emi, you analyzed Pakistani people very well

      • SG

        Seriously? not one sentence Emi wrote was coherent except the “Allah” part..and that is the biggest problem with you people. Why does everything have to be “Allah” related. Ok, even if it does, why cannot it co-exist (like in all other countries) with non Allah (say like Christ , Buddha or Rama)..
        Are you living under a rock? don’t you see the advisories from most countries asking their citizens to avoid travel to Pakistan?
        The places are beautiful , let people come and admire and enjoy them..
        Let it be OK for people to say “allah created”, or “Buddha created” or “Rama Created “..does it really matter who created as long as we believe that the Powerful Lorg God created?
        Fools !

  • Abhishek Sharma

    wow nice beauty in pakistan but this kashmir was also in india i dont know why pakistan wants indian kashmir also?
    If any war started pak vs india all knows india win so why pak wasted his time on it?
    and pak brothers m not hate pakistanis i like pakistan but why u want kashmir ? 🙁

    MY VILLAGE

    My lovely village “Oghaz
    Banda” is situated at a distance of eight
    kilometers north of Battagram city and sixteen kilometers south of Thakot at
    the bottom of Kala Dhaka, a well-known mountain of Hazara Division. It is
    bordered by Kotgalla to the north, enchanting River Nandhar and Shahrah-e-Raisham
    (Silk Route) to the east, Shingli Payeen to the south, Pine Forest (Nakhtaro Jungle)
    to the south-west and Landai – Kala
    Dhaka to the west.

    My great grandfather, Syed Pir Saadat Shah had
    six sons – Syed Pir Imam Shah, Syed Muhammad Issa Shah, Syed Maazuddin Shah,
    Syed Sirajuddin Shah, Syed Ruknuddin Shah and Syed Muhammad Ayaz Shah. First three sons, Syed Pir Imam Shah,
    Syed Muhammad Issa Shah and Syed Maazuddin Shah, who were from his Doadal wife,
    settled in Oghaz Banda and Landai, while Syed Sirajuddin Shah, Syed Ruknuddin
    Shah and Syed Muhammad Ayaz Shah, who were from his Turk-wife, settled in
    Chinar Kot, Singal Kot and Lami, etc.

    My village consists of four parts. The first
    one called “Poray Cham” which is situated to the south of the village, the
    second called “Barra Cham,” situated to the west and the third called “Kaar,” situated
    to the southwest and the fourth one called “Manzanay Kalay,” is the centre of
    the village. Besides, there are some colonies adjacent to my village, called
    Poray Shar, Kata Shar, Shagai and Khan Barai.

    My village has been blessed with a large number
    of natural springs, which have beautified it further. Well-known among them
    are: Chinar Cheena, Jarray Cheena, Tangwano Cheena, Khatsar Cheena, Sorro
    Cheena, Shar Cheena, Nakhtaro Cheena, Jabrai Cheena, Walla Cheena, Bodar Cheena
    and Gudar Cheena. All the people of my village use the water of these natural
    springs and enjoy their lives. Cheenar Spring is very popular which has a big
    maple tree adjacent to it. People sit under the ample shade of maple tree,
    drink cold water (chilled water) of the natural spring and spend their daytime
    in summer season. A cemented floor has been made under the shade of maple tree,
    which is used as “Ja-e- Namaaz” by the people of my village. Tangwano Cheena is
    very important and all the people take bath in this cheena (spring). We’re
    proud of all these natural springs of our village.

    There are five well-known big boulders (stones)
    in the surroundings of my village. These are known as Singlawano Gat, Kharro
    Gat, Gungay Gat, Tereh Gat and Baghrai Gutt. These boulders are the biggest
    ones in Battagram. We use to sit on these boulders and enjoy ourselves. We’re
    also very proud of having these big boulders in our village.

    There are three well-known small streams
    (tangey) in the surroundings of my village. These small streams are known as
    Bulbul Tangay, Tangwano Tangay and Cheenar Tangay. These small streams also fulfill
    the requirements of water for the agriculture of my village.

    Neekeh Gatta (Dady Stone) is also one of the
    scenic points of my village. People sit on it and enjoy themselves by viewing
    the beautiful natural scene of lush green fields. Unfortunately, this stone was
    removed at the time of construction of road to our village. People still do go
    to its site and enjoy themselves by breathtaking view of the surroundings
    grassy fields.

    The Pine Jungle, situated to the southwest of
    my village, has a great attraction. The tall pine trees, their waving leaves
    and branches look very beautiful. We sit under the shade of these pine trees in
    summer season. We also eat the fruits produced from cones (shintai) of pine
    trees. My village has the privilege to have such a beautiful forest of pine
    trees adjacent to it.

    My village has also the privilege of having a
    direct link through bridge with Shahrah-e-Raisham that connects Pakistan with
    China via Khanjrab Pass. This bridge is called ‘Japan Bridge’ which has been
    constructed over River Nandhar with the collaboration of government of Japan.
    This bridge has made my village a well-known and popular one in the whole
    district of Battagram.

    “Khat Sar” situated to the northeast of my
    village is also a popular scenic spot. People come to it and enjoy the
    eye-catching view of the beautiful natural scene of River Nandhar. We often
    take rest and spend most of our leisure time at Khat Sar. People also take
    picture of the beautiful scene of River Nandhar from Khat Sar.

    My village has a beautiful mosque in the centre
    of it. It looks very beautiful from everywhere. This mosque has a small Islamic
    Madrassa and a beautiful place of ablution (wazo khana) adjacent to it. Our
    village “Hujra” is situated to the east of the mosque. People pass their leisure
    time in this Hujra. This is also used as a combined guesthouse for the whole
    village.

    There are several meadows (Charagaah) to the
    west and North West of my village. People send their cattle to these meadows
    for grazing, which come back in the evening. Among these meadows, important
    ones are – Kaareen, Kuzzay Mattay, Barray Mattay and Chowgai. These are very
    fertile lands and people should utilize them for agricultural purposes. May
    God give courage to the people of
    my village

    to construct houses at these lands for
    themselves and make proper use of them. Amin!

    My village has also some well-known graveyards
    in the surroundings of it. These are called Landai Baba Graveyard, Jangrai Baba
    Graveyard, Paacha Baba Graveyard, Mulyano Baqbara and Spedaar Baba Graveyard,
    Khatsar Ziarat, Abai Ziarat and Haji Baba Ziarat. All our forefathers have been
    buried at these graveyards. People visit these graveyards to pray for their
    loved ones. May Almighty Allah grant
    His eternal peace to all of them. Amin!

    There are some spots of “rest” between my
    village and Landai. At these spots, people take rest for some time and get
    them-selves relaxed when they are under any stress. Among these rest spots,
    Proat Inzar, Damma, Ona ( ), Kharo
    Gut and Kandao are important ones.

    My village has the honour to have produced
    genius, educated, hospitable and hardworking people. It is matchless in
    education as compared to other villages of the area. My village has proud
    people. It has a large number of Haafiz-e-Quran, ulema, doctors, engineers,
    masters of Science, theology, business administration and computer, etc. They
    are very industrious and earn their living by the sweat of their brows. It has
    peace-loving people who want to enjoy cordial, peaceful, harmonious and
    friendly relations with all their neighbors. When the people of Kala Daka
    (Black Mountain) used to go to Battagram for shopping, on their way back, they
    used to spend their nights in the mosque of our village. They were used to feed
    by the people of my village. So my village was very popular for hospitality in
    the area.

    I love all these places from the core of my
    heart. I have been born, bred and
    spent most of the time of my childhood at these places. When I am sleeping, I
    always dream of these sites. When I am alone, these places are with me. My
    village is more than Kashmir to me. All people love it very much.
    My village was set ablaze by our archrival neighbours and the people were
    exiled in 1948. But by the grace of Al-Mighty Allah, we came back after an exile of four years. We built it once
    again. But unfortunately, its 85% population was devastated by severe
    earthquake at 8.52 (am), Saturday, 4th Ramazanul Mubarak-1426 A.H.,
    8th October 2005. May Allah protect my lovely village from
    all future dangers. Amin!
