Added some text[edit]

I added some text to the stub. Not added the infobox yet, have a look at it at Template:Pakistan District Infobox and make any changes you see necessary. I'm looking for pictures of Attock but I don't know how long that might take. Green Giant 00:22, 14 February 2006 (UTC)


The old name of Attock was Kamel pur which name due to some reasons like in past when british government ruled here a camle core was established and second reasons is this that a Gen Camble was rule here so due to his name it is starting to called camble pur. Some people says that it was named due to a pois man name Kamal pheer whoes graved is still in the village of Kamalpur sayden attock cantt.

I think you are refering to Gen Sir Colin Campbell, of 'Campbellpore'? In fact 'Attock' was the original/older name, Campbellpore lasted for a short while and then it reverted back to Attock... (talk) 07:39, 19 October 2012 (UTC)Hilda Khan

My Own Introduction[edit]

Many salams to all! I am a comparatively new editor on Wikipedia and hope to learn from all of you and to gradually improve and make more valuable contributions in due course. I originally belong to the Gheba tribe, from the Fateh jang area in Attock district of Rawalpindi division, Pakistan , although I have largely lived in Taxila and wah , since my father was in government service and served largely in these stations. I had my initial education from Govt High School and the Degree College Taxila and then took an Msc degree in History from the Punjab University . Between 2007- tilI now worked for several educational institutions in the Punjab and later I proceeded on a research Project where I wasable to consult extensively at the Library,and eventually will take admission Mphil degree in South Asian Studies at the Quaid azam University of Islamabad. My chief areas of interest includeSouth Asian studies in general, Pakistan studies especially the country's colonial and later socio-political history and literature and the history and culture of the Rawalpindi division and the Northern Punjab areas contiguous to it and I shall also write and publish research in academic journals on these topics.

Removed a section[edit]

Hello, I have today removed a section that was totally self-seeking and self-promoting, about some village 'Thatta' and some 'prominent people' of the same --most probably posted by themselves or commissioned by them. I hope this is not taken wrongly but in the right spirit, if there's something useful to add about the district as a whole, please do so or desist from ruining this article. Kindly do not add any names etc that arent truly notable or dont fit into the article per se. if you wish to write something informative (not self-promotory) about your village, start another page/article, thanks (talk) 07:36, 19 October 2012 (UTC)Hilda Khan

Map image breaches policy & has been removed[edit]

There is currently a deletion discussion taking place at Commons regarding File:Map on Dialects Of Punjabi Language.jpg, which can be viewed here. Regardless of whether the map image is deleted at Commons, I think that it needs to be removed from all English Wikipedia articles because it breaches our synthesis policy. The image creator has provided a long list of sources in the deletion discussion and it is evident from those that none contain all of the information shown in the image, nor is it a simple task to work out which bits of information were gleaned from which source(s). We simply do not permit people to aggregate information in this way. It should also be noted that the chances are very high that the various sources did not even adopt the same methodology in compiling their data, which makes the analysis of the creator even more suspect.

I have removed the image because the Commons discussion may end up as something other than "delete" and yet the thing is still invalid on English Wikipedia. - Sitush (talk) 21:42, 19 March 2013 (UTC)

Map was deleted on two reasons. 1... Commons deletion discussion but now Deletion request by Sitush has been rejected on Wikimedia Commons. 2... Sitush has a self perception that map is synthesis, which is actually not because it is based on latest research of 2007 in the Publication named 'The Indo-Aryan Languages' by George Cardona and Dhanesh Jain. So I am re inserting it. Unless Sitush prove it again as a synthesis and refer me the areas of map being synthesized also mentioning the different publications along with page numbers where from in his kind opinion I have synthesized the map.Maria0333 (talk) 08:22, 22 March 2013 (UTC)

Non notable names[edit]

Pathan in Attok =[edit]

Why Pathan's live in Attock? Pthans are bullshit because they are disaster in Punjab and our tahsil . — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 07:33, 13 September 2013 (UTC) The reason that pathans live in attock is that you punjabis have been made muslims by the sword of pathens and you punjabi harims means that you have the blood of five people in your veins.
