During his reign, #MaharajaRanjitSingh opened several traditional Gurmukhi gurukuls in bungalows located around the Sri Harmandir Sahib (#GoldenTemple).

He also opened specialist Mahajani schools for merchants that focused on business and trading skills.
Thanks to Ranjit Singh, vocational schools teaching miniature painting, calligraphy and architecture also blossomed across the empire.
Wanting to make sure that education in rural areas did not lag, he crafted the 'Qaida Noor' system, under which booklets teaching the basic alphabet, basic math, and elementary writing was distributed to numbers (village heads) across Punjab.

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. ....it 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.

4) On 5/2/1762 by #AhmadShahAbdali and he was killed on 8/7/1762.
5) and the last attack took place on 2/6/1984 by #IndiraGandhi and she was killed on 31/10/1984........
On calculation from the date of attacks and the time when attackers were killed is exactly a gap of #153 days. Why all attackers were killed after 153 days ? #Waheguruji knows well #neverforget1984 #AttackonHolyShrine #attackonhumanity #satnamwaheguruੴ
