Other than the northern Pakistan, one of the famous valleys of Pakistan include Wadi-e-Soon and Sakesar (wadi means valley) in the central Punjab province. Soon Valley is situated in the north west of Khushab. Soon Valley starts from Padhrar village and end to Sakesar that is the highest peak of Salt Range. The length of Soon Valley is 35 miles and average width is 9 miles. Although not as coold as the valleys up north, Soon valley consists of beautiful lakes, waterfalls, jungles, natural pools and ponds. Soon valley is also blessed with ancient civilization , natural resources, and fertile farms. There are some special features of this valley that distinguish it from other areas, without knowing about them it is very hard to understand its importance. Sabhral, Khoora, Nowshera, Kufri, Anga, Ugali, Uchali and Bagh Shams-ud-Din are important towns in soon valley. Kanhatti Garden, Sodhi Garden, Da'ep and Sakesar are resorts to visit. Awan tribe is settled in Soon Valley.
Located at a height of 5,010 feet above sea level, Sakesar was once the summer headquarters for the deputy commissioners of three districts - CampbelIpur (now Attock), Mianwali and Sargodha. It is the only mountain in this part of the Punjab which receives snow fall in winters. In view of Sakesar's ideal location and height, the PAF selected it in the late-50s as the site for a high powered radar which would
provide air defence cover for the northeastern part of the western wing. Pakistan Television's re-broadcasting center has been installed to provide terrestrial transmissions coverage to adjoining areas.

  1. HAIL OF THE ATOMIC BOMBS
    SIR,
    Never in its long history mankind could find itself exposed to so grievous a threat as at present from the atomic devastation. This threat means not only the complete annihilation of life on earth, besides a most disgraceful end of all humanity, all civilization, but also an absolute certainty of the earth being rendered uninhabitable for millions of years to come due to the dispersal of radioactive materials throughout the world as a result of either the fission process carried on in the atomic bomb or the atomic reactors for peace. This world may any moment be subjected to a hail of atomic bombs and destroyed in a matter of days, hours, even minutes inspite of all the futile efforts on the part of mankind to put a ban on the atomic war. The course of atomic energy for peace may not prove nay the less hazardous. Rather the possibility is that in the long run the so-called atomic energy for peace may prove equally if note more destructive and more devastating than the hail of atomic bombs, inspite of all the wishful thinking on the part of these responsible for the adoption of the atomic energy today or tomorrow. The Quran fourteen centuries ago has peophecied the atomic hell and has diagnosed the moral and economic causes of its emergence in the clearest of terms. (Kindly read Surah Alhomaza-104-Quran)
