Sadda is the second largest town in Kurram Agency. It is a big trade market for the people of Lower Kurram and Central Kurram. During the Soviet-Afghan War it was known for its mujahideen training camps set up by Ustad Abdur Rab Sayyaf.[citation needed]


The majority tribes are the Orakzai and Bangash. Other minority tribes are Paracha, Para chamkani, Turi and Jaji. Being a trading point, it bustles with business activity attracting customers and traders from all over Kurram Agency. It has with time become a multi tribe region. In 2007 unrest, there were many tabliban leaders leaving in Sadda.
