Mong the land of Martayars, saints and ghaziz is full of life sacrificing events in its history.where in 1832 Sardar Sabaz Ali Khan and Sardar Malli Khan and many more chiefs of Sudhna Tribe laid down their lives for the sake of freedom from the clutches of Doagars.There is a big list of the heroes of this area but some of them are very rare and prominent just because of unique chracters and roles. One of them was Col Sher Khan Shaheed , founder of 5AK regiment.

when the people are in the grip of overpowering odds,they begin to struggle for a way out.History often brings to the fore at such periods a national hero,who having supreme confidence in the cause he advocate,leads his people to ultimate triumph and glory.This has been true of our own history,and it is,therefore,we pay homage and tribute to our heroes ,who fought for our freedom and enabled us ultimately to establish our own homeland. The hero in history is not an isolated phenomenon, and his life and work can not be viewed divorced from the time in which he lived. A proper understanding and appraisal of his contemporary scene thus become essential , in order to correctly access the heroes impact and influence on the course of history. Similarly in 1947 the historical moments of the Mongians was the culmination of the Kashmir history that won for us our freedom ,enabling us to live our life as an independent nation.The history of our struggle for freedom has been a dialectic process ,during the course of which the Mongians Sardars become conscious of their destiny,learnt to fearlessly voice their political demands and their will to live as a separate nation found its final articulation. Mong the land of Martyrs, saints and Ghaziz is full of life sacrificing events for the word of God and for the freedom of the state in its history. Sometimes in 1832 on the historical land of Mong , Sardar Sabz Ali Khan and Sardar Malli Khan flay their alive skins for the freedom and indite a unique lesson in the history of the world and sometimes the Shuddas of Mong laid down their lives for the completion of Adhan. Mongians have struggled against slavery in every epoch. But the organised struggle of this era was started in 1947 when the inhabitants of Mong put up heroic resistance against Sikh Dogra military expeditions in Kashmir and rendered great sacrifices to preserve their freedom and independence. Number of Mongians insurgent chiefs were tortured and flayed publicly for their defiance to accept the illegitimacy of Dogra rule.The Mongians however, avenged the Dogras brutality during Kashmir Jihad in 197-48 when hundred of Mongians ex service men , who had fought world war 1 &II in British Indian Army took arms against illegal accession of Kashmir to India by Mahraja Hari Singh . They destroyed all Dogra fortifications in Poonch and Sudhnoti killed thousands of Dogras /indians troops and liberated their territory. Whenever the forces of gloom and darkness tend to overwhelm man, their appears of the scene some great personality who strives to stem the tide of these evil forces and to help man in combating all that is ignoble and impure. This is God's way of Helping man. The life of Col Sher Khan Shaheed provides ones of these instances in which the man of destiny come to lead mankind towards light at time when it is needed most. The appearance of that great man at that time destined to bring peace to thousands and thousands of men was most opportune. Col Sher Khan Shaheed, the founder of 5AK regiment has a unique role in the history of Kashmir. He was born at Mong. His honesty , integrity,argumentative, commutative and military skills were admired by those who did not see eye to eye with him in all war like matters. In 1947 when the inhabitants of Mong raised the flag of rebellion against the Dogra Army ,Col Sher Khan was the man who converged all the chiefs and ex service men of Mong and laid a foundation of 5AK Regiment . Col sher Khan had been in British army during the second world war and in requital of his bravery the British Government had conferred upon him (M.C.O.B.I.D.S.M) awards and two Murrabas in Dadoo.He sold out all his Murrabas( land) in order to give the salary to those ,who were enlisted in his regiment. Col Sher Khan the founder of 5AK regiment , in october 1947 launched an equipped war against Dogras Army. The Maharaha of Kashmir offered him numerous temptations in order to dissuade him from his mission,but these had no effect on him . These temptations were followed by threats but proved ineffective. undismayed by threats and uninfluenced by temptations, he pursued his mission unostentatiously but successfully.He fought bravely and drove the dogras to Chujja Hill which is now in control of Pakistan . In requital of his bravery the govt of Azad KASHMIR conferred upon him FAKHRAY KASHMIR, SHARAY JANG,BAHADAR.awards. He was also Fathay Satwal (the conqueror of Satwal) and Chirri Kot.When he was fighting with Dogra Army he ordered his soldiers to stop firing and ask them to arrest and (JANU)them the word of his own language. They were got surprised and took his word as a new weapon and fled from these two sectors without giving any resistance. In the war of 1965-71 the radio Azad KASHMIR has been broadcasting these words in every bulletin to encourage the Kashmiris.He always wished for Shihadat. so on the first of Ramzanul Mubarak 9th of July 1948 his dua got acceptance in the levee of God .He was 72 years old when he was fulfilling the sunnah of the great commanders of BADDAR AND UHHAD . On his lips was the name of God.He got shihadat on that day, leaving behind him a deathless legend of dedications to the cause of Islam.There is no exaggeration in the statement that it was through his influence that the people of Mong increasingly become a supporter of Jihad. It was a time of acceptance when a unique chapter in the history of Kashmir was going to be indited. The Ghalib Khan from NWFP who was the right hand of Col Sher Khan impressing by his unique qualities decided to name after his son or grand son as Col Sher Khan.He prayed to Allah Almighty to accept him or his family for the stability of Islam .No one knew that history would repeat itself in such a way.After going back from sector , he named his grand son Col Sher Khan. He was born at Sawabi in 1970.After passing his FSC he got commission in Pakistan Army.After completing his PMA training he was deputed at Sakardoo sector and got shihadat while fighting against Indian Army at Kargal sector.And in requital of his bravery the Government of Pakistan conferred upon him the greatest military award NISHANAY HAIDER .And thus a unique history of sacrifice of COL SHER KHAN TO CAPT COL SHER KHAN indited in such a way. The born people of such kind are few and far who impressed the universe with their natural commutative and military capacities. These people can lay down their lives for the exaltation of the rights, defense of motherland and for the extinction of false powers. They can get stripped of their alive skins but retreating before the enemies considered against the norms of bravery.And in fact people of such qualities have always proved an iron wall in front of false conceptions.
