Chak No.2 Shamali
Info on the village and brief history
The village was built by the Sikhs during the British raj in 1933. Before the partition it was named Chak No 2 Sikha dah. It was first inhabited by the Sikhs and all the land belonged to the Sikhs pre partition. The village itself is small but the land it owns is huge.
Chak No. 2 North (Shumali) is situated 2km east of Mandi Bahauddin Central. There is also a Chak No. 2 south which is situated across the river.
The population of the village is approx 2,000. The village itself is alongside a very huge canal. There are 3 canals that run alongside Chak 2 North.
The People of Chak No. 2
The people of the village are mostly farmers and labor workers. The canals are of a huge benefit for the farmers as they supply a huge amount of water to these crops. The people mainly belong to the Gujjar tribe caste.Crops that mostly grow there are: Wheat, Sugar Cane (majority) & rice.This is the villages main income reason being that the majority of men are farmers.
Shops & Mosques
There are a number of shops there including 3 convenience stores Nikku's being the most largest 2 diesel shops Mohammed-Din Faujis being the larger one, 2 masjid's (mosque's) one being a newly built one which was kindly funded by the village inhabitants and the other being a older one but this one is used more but is smaller.
Education, Schools and Hospital
There are two boys Government funded schools one being in the out dated Gurdwara (as the village was first inhabited by the Sikh's) and the other being on the entrance of the village. There is also a hospital called Riaz-ul-Janat and is funded and was built by Tayyub Munir (Currently resides in Norway Europe) s/o Ch. Munir Ahmed Battiya. This Hospital will be a vital for the village as there are going to be shops being built near it such as clothes and shoe shops and there are no reliable doctors around.
