This is the factual history of Pakistan as recorded by a Pakistani researcher and completely truthful.

3000 −1500 BC Indus Valley Civilization History of Pakistan

The Indus Valley civilization formally occurred around the Eastern and Western banks of the Indus River and its 5 tributaries

  • Ravi River
  • Beas River
  • Sutlej River
  • Chenab River
  • Indus River

There were only two other civilizations in the Bronze Age that matched the Indus Valley Civilization; Egyptian and Mesopotamian.

Pakistan has risen from the ruins of these great ancient cities

  • The city of Peshawar on the entrance to Khyber Pass has artifacts before the 2ndcentury BC.
  • The city of Multan at the confluence of 5 rivers and has been continually inhabited for at least 2500 years.See Multan Sun Temple
  • See Multan Sun Temple
  • Mohenjo-Daro, the “city of the dead” was fully functional as a modern city in 2500 BC.
  • Harappa Sahiwal City, 2600 BC on the now dried out Ravi River.
  • Mehr Garh Dhadar City, (7000 – 2500 BC) in Baluchistan, Pakistan.
  • Taxila (1000 BC), the center of Buddhist and Civilizational learning.

All these great ancient cities coincide with the rise to power of the Indus Valley around 2500 BC and this is where Pakistan History formally begins.

PRO TIP

The civilization came to Pakistan before it reached India.

Civilizational evolution took time to reach the deep reaches of India, eastwards, because of the thick vegetation, fauna, and rivers of the Indus Valley.

1500 – 500 BC Vedic History of Pakistan

Vedic Civilizationtook shape around the Indus Valley in Pakistan.

The earliest Sanskrit Vedic text of Hinduism was scripted in a cave of Kallar Kahar, Chakwal Pakistan.

This is the first time when the Indo-Aryan people of the Indus Valley, armed with more civilizational knowledge and wealth spread deeper Eastward into the Ganges Plains of India.

Northern India has, by and large, remained part of the Indus Valley in Pakistan, throughout history.

500 – 327 BC 1stPersian Rule in History of Pakistan

Darius of Persia, son-in-law of Cyrus, sent an official surveyor to the Indus Valley who reported amazing findings.

Skylax of Caryanda in 510 BC reports seeing in Pakistan:-

  • Rulers who look different from their subjects
  • Nomadic hunter-gatherers,
  • Cave dwellers,
  • Giant Alligators
  • One-eyed people,
  • Dark in complexion,
  • one-offspring couples

Darius quickly occupied the Pakistan land of Sindh after that and named it Hindus.

Hindus, Sindhus, and Indus are the same word, pronounced differently.

Pakistan’s ethnic name is Indus.

326 BC Alexander the Great of Macedon defeated Porus across the Jhelum River Punjab and

  • Formally introduced Greek to this land of Pakistan, beyond Punjab
  • Their influence stayed on in the shape of Indo Bactrian Kingdoms

Although pagan, Greek introduced an all-inclusive secular style of government in Northern Pakistan.

322 – 185 BC Hindu-Buddhist Maurya Empire in Pakistan

Hindu Chandragupta Maurya’s empire was extended by Buddhist Asoka the Great until 185 BC.

Maurya Empire stayed friendly toward Greek, as reflected in the Buddhist deities of the time.

Asoka converted to Buddhism and introduced Buddhism all across Northern Pakistan in 300 BC.
