HistoryEdit

In the 2000s, Bara achieved some mention in worldwide media with the founding of Lashkar-e-Islam, founded in the area by Mufti Munir Shakir, and later passed to Mangal Bagh, a local driver.[citation needed]

In January 2018, the tehsil offices of Bara reopened to the public after being closed for 12 years due to law and order issues.[4]
