There had been a suggestion that this article may be merged with another article namely, HISTORY OF PUNJAB.

It is submitted tat this article PRE-GHAZNAVID HISTORY OF PUNJAB presents a unique contribution by filling the void in narration of history of Punjab. All history books are completely silent who ruled in Punjab during the centuries preceding the rule by the Ghanavids. So a section has been added in that vacant time-slot in the other article covering roughly 800-1000 CE. The two articles cannot be merged. The matter is not repetitive, thought the headings are very similar. historicalfacts4Historicalfacts4 (talk) 07:57, 20 July 2013 (UTC)

Poor quality[edit]

This article does not fulfil the purpose of an encyclopaedia and needs a complete re-write. Sections appear to have been copied word for word from other works without consideration of how they fit into the context here. It should not be merged, in its present state, with History of the Punjab. I regret I cannot undertake the re-write myself, as I do not know the period. It needs attention from an experienced Wikipedia contributor with knowledge of the period and good command of English. Apuldram (talk) 11:18, 18 February 2014 (UTC)
