بیساکھی تہوار
شہر امرتسر کا مشہور ترین باغ
20 ہزار سکھوں کی موجودگی
باغ تین اطراف سے بند
تہوار میں ہنس راج کی تقریر شروع ھوئی
یکایک ایریا کمانڈر جنرل ڈائر کی 50 مسلح انگریزوں اور 100 ھندوستانیوں کے ساتھ آمد
بغیر وارننگ کے فائرنگ شروع کر دی گئی
10 منٹ تک اندھا دھند فائرنگ ھوتی رہی جب تک فوجیوں کے پاس 1650 گولیاں ختم نہ ھو گئیں
بمطابق سرکاری تحقیقات اس فائرنگ سے379 افراد قتل اور 1200 زخمی ھوئے مگر کانگریس کی تحقیقاتی کمیٹی کیمطابق مرنےوالوں کی تعداد 2000 سےکم نہ تھی۔
یہ خونین تاریخ میں "سانحہ جلیانوالہ باغ" کےنام سے رقم
یہ محض جنرل ڈائر(Gen.Dyre)کی شوریدہ سری اورفرعونیت نہ تھی بلکہ مارشل لاءکی ایک جھلک بھی تھی کہ فوجی ہمیشہ گولی کی زبان میں بات کرتاھےیونہی تہواروں پراطراف بندکرکےمسکراہٹوں کاسرکچلتاھے
یہ بربریت1947کی نویدھےاسلیےمزاحمت کسی حال میں نہیں رکنی چاہییے

1. The foundation of Harimandir Sahib was laid by Guru Arjan Dev ji himself - this is what the original Sikh historical sources tell us - refer to sources given below - [1] [2] [3] [4]
The story of Mian Mir laying the foundation is NOT true and...
2. was fabricated three centuries later by a British - E. Nicholl (Secretary, Municipal Committee, Amritsar)
This Mian Mir story is not supported by any original Sikh sources or persian sources and not even the biographers of Mian Mir mentions it [5] ....
3. References.
[1]. Giani Gian Singh (Twarikh Guru Khalsa, Patshahi 5, page 24)…

[2]. Macauliffe (The Sikh Religion, Vol 3, page 10)…

Do not accept the theory of "Intelligence failure" just because media uses it loosely in their reporting incase of any terror attack in India. Our intelligence agencies have averted many attacks in last 1 month. We enjoyed 15 Aug 2021 because of intelligence success. 1/n
Let us look at the events of last couple of weeks.

31st July : Jaish chief Masood Azhar's nephew killed in J&K's Awantipora encounter, was involved in Pulwama attack
3rd Aug : 1 terrorist killed in the ongoing encounter at #Bandipora . The terrorist was a resident of Ugada district of Punjab in Pakistan and his body was retrieved from the site of the encounter. 1 AK-rifle, 2 AK magazines, 40 AK rounds, wireless set & a medicine bag recovered

1/8 Unless you are the luckiest man in the world you will find it impossible to get a good kulcha outside of Amritsar.

There is a reason for that. At most restaurants, there is just one tandoor and everything goes into that.
2/8 But you can’t cook a good kulcha in a hot tandoor like you can cook a naan or a tandoori roti. A kulcha needs its own special tandoor kept at a gentle temperature.
3/8 Only in Punjab are there so many restaurants dedicated to kulchas which have tandoors kept at perfect kulcha temperatures. The cook will roll out the dough in layers, smearing each layer with a coating of ghee.

इतना बड़ा देश है, इतने आयोजन होते है एक भी आयोजन ऐसा नहीं होता जहाँ कुछ अनहोनी होने पर उससे बचने के इंतजाम किये जाते हो

आखिर कब सीखेंगे हम, कम सीखेंगी हमारी सरकारें
यहाँ जहाँ में रहता हूँ, ऐसे आयोजन हो तो आयोजन स्थल पर
1. फायर ब्रिगेड
2. अम्बुलेंस
3. पुलिस
4. वालंटियर्स
ये तो अनिवार्य रूप से उपस्तिथ होते ही है
इसके अतिरिक्त
वहां से गुजरने वाला यातायात बंद

क्या हम भी कभी कुछ सीखकर आदमी के जीवन की कीमत समझ पायेंगे?
#Amritsar #Punjab हादसे में
1. क्या आयोजन कर्ता ने उक्त स्थान पर इस आयोजन की परमिशन ली थी?
2. ली थी, तो अनुमति देने वाले विभाग ने क्या दिशा निर्देश दिए थे?
3. क्या आयोजन कर्ता और जनता को नहीं पता था की उन पटरियों से उस समय वो ट्रेन गुजरती है?

Here are some facts about the #Amritsar train tragedy:
1. A five foot wall of the railways separates the railway tracks and the empty plot where #dussehra was celebrated.
2. People were watching the Ravana burning from the tracks which are on a height to get a better view.
3. The jora phatak or twin railway crossing is about 400 feet away from the spot where people were standing on the tracks to watch Dussehra.
4. The railway crossing gates were closed and the crossing was manned.
5. Dussehra celebrations were NOT held at this spot last year.
6. The event was organised by Saurabh Mithu Madaan, the son of a Congress municipal corporator. Mithu Madaan is of the Navjot Singh Sidhu group in the Amritsar Municipal Corporation.

This is failure of Punjab Police. Whenever there is a gathering of people they have to get permission from the local police.

In salem to organise a street corner meeting, we have to get permission from police. Police have designated places for public gatherings
Salem police refused to give us permission to hold a street corner meeting because service road was near the meeting spot , such being the case how did #Amritsar police give permission for such a huge gathering on the railway track ?. 100% Punjab Police failure.
Punjab Police shouldn't have permitted this event so close to railway track
People have no business to stand on the railway track .
Organisers should be arrested
Police officials concerned should be arrested
