Two thousand five hundred years before the birth of Lord Christ and more than three millennia prior to Jibril’s visit to Prophet Muhammad commanding him to Recite in the name of the Lord Who Created, on the right bank of the Indus lived simple extraordinary people, who were not barbarians but sophisticated social dwellers of the largest of all known cities of the Indus civilization - 4 miles in circuit and 100 hectares in size - Mohenjo Daro. This site was unearthed by the famous archaeologist Sir John Marshall in the 20’s, who found it in a very good condition, relatively well preserved. The remains revealed a sophisticated urban planning, immaculate sanitary network and a progressive society under a reverent authority. John Marshall felt that with its excavation, it would prove a rival to any other site of prehistoric age, Dales referred to it as a splendour, as a walk in its streets gave the feel of a modern town setting with great potential of yielding clues to the early and formative phases of the Indus civilization.
