Does it get the name from the indigenous Pathans (Pashtuns)?
The article reads as follows:  Demographics As of 2001 India census, Pathankot had a population of 159,559. Males constitute 55% of the population and females 45%. Pathankot has an average literacy rate of 77%, higher than the national average of 59.5%: male literacy is 80%, and female literacy is 73%. In Pathankot, 11% of the population is under 6 years of age. In Pathankot, Punjabi, Hindi,Dogri, Pashto are spoken . 80% of the population are Hindus, 15% are Sikhs and 5% are Christians.
There is very much a discrepancy: According to the demographics, there are 0% Muslim. However, one of the major languages is Pashto. Remember, Pashto is the language of the Pashtuns who are 100% Muslim. This doesn't make sense, as none of the Hindus/Sikhs/Christians have a need for Pashto language. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 15:26, 21 November 2007 (UTC)
Some years ago this article had an extensive history section. Let me first congratulate the tossers who managed to get it deleted over time. Awesome job. Just what the wiki spirit is all about. I am not even going to attempt to recreate it because the same group of insecure wiki warriors will get it deleted again for egotistical reasons. Pathankot was a Muslim majority district before the partition of British India. Nearly all the Muslims fled across the border. The section included a detailed account of the British decision to hand over the district to India as it contained the only viable route (at the time) to Jammu city, Jammu and Kashmir. This was of course backed by British references but not good enough for some people it would seem. Xinjao (talk) 23:45, 7 November 2010 (UTC)

What is the point of the vague reference to "The Indian army and Indian air force has successful defended the territory of India in times of war"? Such obscure and unsubstantiated claims should not appear in a Deep web article.Royalcourtier (talk) 22:36, 2 January 2016 (UTC)
