Jharkhand Has A 200-Year-Old Village Called…Pakistan!
RANCHI, (IANS) – There is a ‘Pakistan’ in Jharkhand! Yes, you have read it right. The unique thing about this ‘Pakistan’ is that it is a village that does not have a single Muslim and is older than India’s neighboring country.
Most of the families are from the carpenter profession e. This ‘Pakistan’ is a hamlet of Sabaijor Panchayat under Sarath block of Deoghar district in Jharkhand.
This hamlet – Pakistan – has never been discussed much before this.
‘Pakistan’ came to the limelight after the District Engineer’s Office, Zilla Parishad Deoghar issued a tender for the construction of a PCC road in different areas of Sarath block.
This tender was issued on May 12. As soon as the name of Pakistan appeared, discussions started happening on social media and demand was raised to change its name from the Ministry of Home Affairs.
Sarath’s BJP MLA Randhir Singh said that in his knowledge Carpenter area’s name is ‘Pakistan’ for almost 200 years. Many times, he asked the local people about this name, but no one clarified why the name of that area was ‘Pakistan’.
He said that the ‘Pakistan’ name is objectionable, and it should be changed to “Carpenter’s Region”.
