Role of Sargodhians in 1965 Pakistan India War.

In 1966, Pakistan Government had awarded the citizens of Lahore, Sialkot And Sargodha for their braveness in the Indo-Pakistani War of 1965 which was started on 06.09.1965. when the Indian Army Troops suddenly attacked and break the Line of Control in the West Pakistan sector at near about 3.00 AM. The Indian Army Chief and high official announced that they would take dinner in Lahore Gymkhana Club. BBC announced this news in their news bulletins again and again. But all there dreams changed in to a dreadful dream, false and baseless when they cannot able to cross the BRB Canal with their utmost try till the end of the war. During this 17 days war, the character of Lahoris proved themselves as an undefeatable through their bravery. On 07.09.1965, the Indian Army attacked with over 1,000 armed Sherman tanks at Sialkot sector but all their dreams has been changed in to a dreadful dreams when the brave men from Pakistan Army laid down to tie the bombs on their chests and laid down in front of these tanks. It is called that this tank war was the second biggest war of tanks after 2nd World War. In the result, all most all the tanks were changed in to scrap. On the very same day, the Indian Air Force attacked the biggest air attack over Sargodha Air base with their latest Russian Mig which the had taken from the Soviet Union. But by the grace of Almighty Allah (God) once again helped the Pakistanis and most of their Russian Mig were totally damaged or fell down in an air fight.   Seeing this braveness of the People of Lahore, Sialkot and Sargodha, the Government of Pakistan awarded the cities and citizens of Lahore, Sialkot and Sargodha with the flag name "HILAL-E-ISTAQLAL" which is one of the highest civilian award. The citizens of Lahore, Sialkot and Sargodha played an important role in this war and helped Pakistan Army and Pakistan Air Force and Pakistan Navy with their full zeal and zest.

In the district of khushab most of its land is arid and is of two types, one is situated near a salt range, and the other one is thal.

In thal people cultivate gram( chana) on a large scale. Most people of khushab's thal rely on gram. Some land is occupied by saline water.

There are some lake type places where saline water is available throughout the whole year.and it is spoiling the land for years. Some of that palces are kaka, rangpur, and laghari.

Literacy rate in khushab is not low but not suffciant due to unavailability of schools and colleges. Most of the students travel daily for an hour or more to get in the college and same with high school.

Transportation is very poor.roads are damaged, specially muzafargarh road which leads to multan from jauharabad is not repaired and not modified for years.

Mianwali is the second district of the sargodha division and was developed in 1909.literacy rate is reasonable.

Bhakar is also desert area but it is developed and people use tubewells to water their land. But installing a tubewell is costly and a comman man can not afford it.literacy rate is reasonable.

But transportation facilties are not good. People are migrating towards well-off areas like jauharabad and other cities like sargodha.

Jhelum river runs between district khushab and also acts as a boundry line but is not more than a hindrance. People mostly have their relation across the river and crossing river is very teasing experiance.

Bridge is being demanded at jhelum river near jauhara kalan. Funds have been approved but no progress has yet been made.

Another problem that has made people' life uncertain is atomic energy plant at giroot. it is causing environmental and aquatic pollution.

Plant is disposing off its wastes in river from chashma jhelujm link canal at sher garh
