  9. Dear,

    Dinga is birth place of my late father. Years ago a visited this town just to see it. I saw a well around the town with a name plate of it’s owner and the name of village was mentioned as DIN GAH (because of a very high rating relegious school in the town). So it does not have any concern with DING etc. It was Din Gah which converted into DINGA due to eccent plroblem of britishier who ruled this area after defeating Sher Sing a Sikh warrior. At the time of Chillianwala war between English army and Sardar Sher Sing the name of this town was DIN GAH.

    Two years ago a met Mr.Shah (Sahib) who is Line Superintendent of Wapda and was posted at Dinga Sub.Division who also confirm that has has also seen that well. It can be confirmed from him.

    Please publish my mail to rectify this mistake.

    Akhtar.
