3000 year old city found in Islamabad, archaeologists find traces of Hindu temple
Pak vandalizing cultural heritage of ancient India

Early Times Report
Jammu, Nov 18: Archaeologists have discovered 3000 year old city Bazeera in Barakot tehsil of Islamabad in Pakistan.
The excavations are believed to be remains of Alexander, who according to the historians, had come to Swat in 326 BC.
According to the media reports, traces of Hindu temple, Stupas, weapons, pots and coins have been found by the archaeologists. They have confirmed that two inscriptions are in Brahmi script, which is one of the oldest scripts of ancient India.
An analyst while talking to Early Times said," It seems someone needs to remind Pakistani leaders that their country was a part of Hindustan till 1947 and their ancestors were from India. Unfortunately, the people who have ruled Pakistan during the past 70 years have distorted the history and have preached to their children that their ancestors were from Iran, Afghanistan and other parts of Central Asia. They have tried their best not to tell their younger generation who their real ancestors were."
He said," Since the day Pakistan has been formed its rulers have made every possible attempt to destroy the signs of their ancestors."
An observer said that," Pakistani rulers have no respect for the sentiments of millions of people of Indian sub-continent who take pride in their history and cultural heritage. Hardliners in Pakistan are out to destroy all the symbols of rich cultural heritage of the ancient India."
He said," If we compare India with Pakistan it becomes clear that how civilized our country is and how we have preserved the symbols like Humayun's Tomb, Red Fort, Qutub Minar and other places."
The observer said that," It is unfortunate when Pakistan was formed the then leaders of our country didn't sign any treaty with then Pakistani leaders to safeguard the common heritage sites of the erstwhile Hindustan."
He said that the mistakes committed in the past can be rectified in new India. "If Pakistan can talk about Ayodhya verdict in UNESCO, what is stopping our leaders from telling the world how Pakistan is vandalizing the heritage of the ancient India."
Another analyst said that," Pakistan is being controlled by the Pak Army, ISI and the hardcore terrorists, who during the past many years have reduced the size of minority community from 30 percent to mere 5 percent. So how can anyone expect them to safeguard the symbols of the ancient India? Some moderate people in Pakistan who have raised their voice to safeguard the cultural heritage were ridiculed by the hardliners. They were even threatened to be thrown out of the country if they don't shut their mouth."
