History resource[edit]

I'm a bit busy at the moment, but if anyone wants to footnote some history, there's a good British resource here for the area: http://books.google.com/books?id=ynErxAOIz9gC&pg=PA71&dq=1999+population+dera+ismail+khan&hl=en&ei=GO9ITdi6GcL48Abm3Km2Dg&sa=X&oi=book_result&ct=result&resnum=4&ved=0CDcQ6AEwAw#v=onepage&q&f=false .

The Gandapurs are a Pashtun tribe inhabiting the environs of Dera Ismail Khan, a major commercial center the west bank of the Indus River, in the southern region of the North-West Frontier Province of Pakistan, near the frontier with South Waziristan. The Gandapurs reside principally in the small town of Kulachi on the bank of River Gomal, a tributary of River Indus and trace their origin to Afghanistan. They settled in Dera Ismail Khan area in 17th Century A.D. A part of the tribe lives in Sur Kalay in Ghazni Province of Afghanistan. http://dikcity.weebly.com/famous-places.html http://gandapurhistory.blogspot.com/ Tigerkhan007 (talk) 13:19, 18 August 2013 (UTC)
