Kahuta Triangle Industrial Area, Islamabad
Events & News
Kahuta Tehsil (Urdu: تحصیل کہوٹہ) is one of the seven tehsils (subdivisions) of Rawalpindi District in the Punjab province of Pakistan. The neighbouring tehsil of Kallar Sayedan used to be part of Kahuta, but was later created as separate tehsil. The name Kahuta was derived from "Koh" a local medicinal tree (Look the leaves as Oliven) and "Boota". Perhaps "Koh Boota" was shortened to Kohuta/Kahuta over the passage of time.
The predominantly Muslim population of the area supported the Muslim League and Pakistan Movement. After the independence of Pakistan in 1947, the minority Hindus and Sikhs faced many attacks and massacres by the Muslims so they migrated to India.
