Zarobai Munara commonly known as Zarobi is a historical town and Union Council of Swabi District in the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province of Pakistan.

This is one of the big villages of Swabi District in terms of population. This village still has those strong cultural values the beauty of a typical village whether it is in the materials or in the residents of the village. This village is distributed in two main parts: Porta cham (Abu sayd) and Khakata cham (Akhun Sayad).


Zarobi is situated on the right bank of the river Abaseen (Indus) in the southeast of District Swabi (Pakhtunkhwa), 5 miles from Tarbela Dam in the west and in the south its border with Attock District, and east south border with Haripur tehsil (Hazara). Nearby villages: Topi, Kota, Kalabat, Marghuz, Garh. Dhok. Yousafi, Batakara (Swabi) Garai, Sheenkay, Chhachh (Attock) Qazipur, Hassan Pur, Ghazi (Hari Pur). Zarobai is the Remanent of village Munara eroded by a dreadful flood in the past in June 1841 AD. The inhabitants of Munara were used to face horrible accidents and incidents with great tolerance and dare caused by the unruly River Indus.


Zarobai is the continuation of the historical village Munara which was once existed at the coast of Indus (Abaseen river) and then destroyed two times in Indus floods. After that crucial incident the people of that destroyed village were brought together at Zarobai derai and later it was named just Zarobai.

When the partition of the whole territory belonging to the Pashtoons was taking place among-st their tribes by Shiekh Milli's partition rule, our ancestors were given their part/portion at Munara but it was a small village and their share was much greater which was impossible to be given here so they got their remaining portion at Trapakai (now included in Tarbela Dam) and Pajman.

Munara (which was already a build up village at the north bank river Indus) was a very famous and historical place; its name has been mentioned in the battles fought between Yousafzai and Dalazak tribes time by time and other historic references, which describes its importance.

The battle between Gaju Khan (yousafzai) and Malik Bhai Khan (Dalazak) which lasted for depreciation of Dalazaks was fought somewhere near Munara.The defeatist Dalazak tribe escaped to the opposite side(south bank of river Indus i.e. Church Valley) across water.

The old village was actually a little to the west of present village at a distance of about a kilometer whose archives are still present.


Some research scholars belonging to this village have researched up to some how but more work is going on, regarding this matter. Some believe that this Zarobai, Zarobay or Zarobi is in accordance with Sarobai, Sarobay or Sarobi in Afghanistan, but later a letter Z or S changed in both either in Zarobai or Sarobai. Maybe the people living here and there have some conformity of tribes. There are many villages in East Pukhtonkhwa which are similar in names to the towns and cities either in West Pukhtonkhwa or in Hindustan. All these haven't happened in hurry/accident or fortunately, it may have a background but unfortunately underground. What may however the fact, but it is obvious that Afghanistan is the mother land of all Pashtoon tribes living in every corner of the globe.

History of Azad schools in Pakhtunkhwa

Abdul Ghaffar Khan dearly known as Baacha Khan, who back in 1920 used education as a means for social transformation and established a chain of more than seventy schools in the North West Frontier Province (NWFP) making the local community an integral part of his educational program. This effort was initiated at a time when there was a dire need of purposeful and quality educational system that was both easily accessible and catered to the social, cultural and developmental needs of the Pakhtoons. It was a challenging effort; however, Baacha Khan made it possible by involving the local community, stirring up in them a sense of responsibility for collective effort and self-reliance. This endeavor proved fruitful in as far as it remained unobstructed by the oppressive British colonial forces. Azad Islami School Zarobai
