Yes is it very much safe for any Hindu or Sikh to visit this area. If somebody will go to his forfather's village, he will find great welcome from locals.

My parents also hail from Talagang - Mogla. I wish a videographer can provide me a good film covering the well known areas of the city including especially our ancestral home if it still exists. I'm willing to pay a reasonable fee for the services. Will any videographer help me? I'm in Bhopal, India.

Dear Mr. Khan,
Thanks for responding. I have gone through Google earth and also Youtube videos and I really loved the tour of main city area with melodius folk songs in the background. But these videos are more general in nature. I would also like to have a custom made or personalised type of video concentrating more on the area and the house where my parents lived. A sort of video with running commentary and perhaps couupled with intervies of the residents who knew my family. As such I'm waiting for more responses. Can anybody help.

I want these bastard mahja punjabis to stay away from potwar and azad kashmir. They pollute the place with their coarse language, rude demeanor and ugly faces. The hills of potwar, mountains of azad kashmir, the fort of rohtas and the ancient ruins of taxila will never be the same again if we allow these monkeys from sialkot and gujranwala etc to continue to descend to our lands. Punjabiya randi ne awlad an. death to punjabis!

my elders used to refer to villages like mogla, karsal, tamman, bhagwal, malakwal and towns like talagang, chakwal and districts campbellpur, jhelum. can any body having knowledge of the area throw light on the present status of these places.
my elders also used to tell us that irrespective of difference in religion the people were very nice, peace-loving and cooperative. It were the outside gangs of goondas from cities who forced them to leave and migrate to present day india.

My great grandad sayed shah said that he went to potohar region of murree and told the people that they have to wash in his urine as it was a holy mohammed urine as he is a sayed and the potoharis of muree said no. After that my ancestor sayed jee called the mughals to punish the potoharis and they said that they do not want to wash and that is were you got that information from. However the abbassis stopped washing but they go to the darbars of all our ancestors like golra sharif, eidgah sharif, mohra sharif and they piss on them. So yes we can agree that they are bad.
