“The name of the village has brought troubles in our life. More often than not the people reach us looking for Pakistan and we feel quite embarrassed,” a local villager Guru Besra told the media today.

According to him, the moment they reveal their identity, the people start mocking at them and make peculiar comments at them.

“We no longer want to be addressed as the residents of Pakistan,” he added. According to him, the name of the village has also led to cancellation of several weddings in the past.

What is strange with the village is that it has no Muslim population; rather it is dominated by tribal villagers.

It is said the village was named after Pakistan in the memory of Muslim villagers who once lived at the village but later shifted to Pakistan after partition in 1947.
