Message by Mrs. Rozina Rehman, The District & Sessions Judge, Karak

Man is a social creature. He is unable to dissociate himself com­pletely from others and live in isolation and seclusion. He is also unable to live in complete harmony with others, since each person has his own particular ideas, qualities, and conduct. to which his nature inclines, which characterize him without anyone else sharing them either partly or wholly. If man is unable to live alone and remain in absolute soli­tariness, nor able to live in complete harmony with others, then dif­ferences will undoubtedly appear between individuals and groups. There will be strife between them and disputes will take place about particular interests, with each one having an eye out for his own in­terests. The noble Qur'anic verses testify to this. As regards the first point, i.e., man's nature as a social creature, it is indicated by the statement of God, the Exalted: “O mankind, We have created you male and female, and appointed you races and tribes, that you may know one another”. (49:13)

We have to strive to promote a culture of justice, peace, merit, principle, truth, tolerance and sacrifice if we wish to handover a better Pakistan to the next generation. Dispensing justice is indeed an uphill task. We are committed to perform this duty with the able assistance of the Bar under the guidance of honourable Chief Justice, but it is only possible with the blessings of Allah Almighty. I pray to Allah Almighty to shower His blessings not only on my team, my staff and myself, but also on every one touched by this tremendous responsibility. Ameen

It gained a district status in 1982, prior to which it was part of Kohat District.

At the time of the 2017 census the district had a population of 705,362, of which 348,315 were males and 357,004 females. Rural population was 654,276 (92.76%) while the urban population was 51,086 (7.24%). The literacy rate was 63.75% - the male literacy rate was 84.37% while the female literacy rate was 44.41%. 285 people in the district were from religious minorities. Pashto was the predominant language, spoken by 99.16% of the population.

Resources:

There are several natural resources that have been discovered in Karak. The salt mines were well known in antiquity and a major source of salt for the Indian subcontinent into British imperial times. More recently oil, gas, and uranium have all been discovered. Oil and gas reservoirs have been found in the towns of Makori, Noshpa Banda, Gurguri and Lachi circle.

Oil and gas reservoirs explored in Karak district are producing 7000 barrels of oil and 2500 cubic feet gas on a daily basis which is a record production from one oil well in the country.The oil and gas reservoirs at Noshapa Banda in district Karak are generating millions of rupees revenue daily. District Karak is blessed with mineral resources and many national and international companies and OGDCL are busy in oil and gas exploration in different areas of the district. Vast reservoirs of oil and gas have been explored in Gurguri and Noshpa Banda areas of the district so far whereas exploration is under way in other areas.

According to a serve conducted by International Nuclear Information System where Fission Track Technique has been applied for the estimation of uranium in 30 drinking water sources of Tehsil Takht-e-Nasrati ,Shnawa Gudi khill and District Karak, Kpk, Pakistan. These samples have mean, minimum and maximum concentration of uranium of 13.45 +- 3.207, 1.07 +- 0.6, 84.23 +- 15.63 micro g l/sup -1/, respectively. The significant finding was the observation of very high level of uranium in drinking water sources obtained from uranium rich bedrocks than the safe limit of WHO (15 micro g l/sup -1/) for human consumption. On the basis of this study, it was concluded that the origin of uranium is potentially due to one of the Asia richest mineral deposit of uranium in Karak, Pakistan. The results could be of vital concern in diagnosis and prognosis of uranium induced disease in the local population under investigation.
