Sadashiv Rao Malkapurkar (photo from a biopic on Chandrashekhar #Azad). He was the ONLY person Azad ever introduced to his parents. He took care of Azad's mother after his release like a son. She died with her head in his lap on March 21, 1953. He performed her last rites. Image

The Lahore Resolution: A 🧵

#OTD in 1940, the All-India Muslim League adopted the Lahore Resolution—which later came to be known as the Pakistan Resolution—during its three-day general session, which was held in #Lahore from March 22–24.

A. K. Fazlul Huq, the Prime Minister of #Bengal, presented the resolution, which was authored and compiled by Muhammad Zafarullah Khan and served as a formal statement of the party's vision for the future of Muslim #India.

The document famously stated that "...the areas in which the Muslims are numerically in a majority as in the North Western and Eastern Zones of India should be grouped to constitute ‘independent states’ in which the constituent units should be autonomous and sovereign."

The idea of #Khalistan was created by politician Jagjit Singh Chohan after he lost an #election in 1969 and went to #UK where he was tapped by #ISI just like Hizbul Mujahideen chief #Syed Salhuddin, who too lost an election.
He then went to #Pakistan to meet Yahya Khan in 1971 who funded him to start #Khalistan movement.

Chohan lost election because he & his ideology was REJECTED by #Punjab. Today, this junk ideology is supported by:

“Bitterly cold day as I cross No Man's Land. Off to pay my respects at the Martyrs' Well in Ajnala where the bodies of native sepoys (who rebelled at the Mianmir Cantt in Lahore in 1857 & who were summarily executed at Ajnala) were 1/n

One of the many gifts I received on my watershed visit to my ancestral home of #Lahore is the signature of my great great grandfather. I spent most of my life thinking all was lost of the legacy of Sir Ganga Ram, and here it’s been preserved for a century by the people of Lahore.
Most people whose ancestors suffered under Partition do not receive such an intact story and legacy. Yet this trip, @NCAPakistan searched thousands of #Lahore archives by hand to find the records of his great public works to share with me. I feel truly fortunate beyond words.
As we put the puzzle pieces of his life together, one thing is clear. Sir Ganga Ram believed any modern advance had to include everyone and make the people more self reliant, or it was not progress. This has deep implications for social, environmental, and economic policy.

Since a few days have passed and thing have "relatively" calmed down, I want to comment on the optics of bringing out APCs in #Lahore Cantt. You all have seen the images go viral on this platform, and some were rightly outraged. 1/n
However, this isn't the first time #PakistanArmy brought out APCs against protesting public. Many years ago, there was a dispute between farmers and the Army over some land in #Okara. That's when this image was shot. For me, personally, it became of the most defining images 2/n

نونہال سنگھ حویلی (بھاٹی گیٹ، لاھور)
گزرے وقت کی جاہ وحشمت والی حویلی، پھرعہد برطانیہ کاوکٹوریہ سکول اور آج کا گرلز ہائر سکینڈری سکول
مہاراجہ رنجیت کے پوتےکنور نونہال سنگھ (1821-1840) کی یادگار
بلاشبہ اپنے باپ کھڑک سنگھ کیطرح نونہال
نالائق نہ تھا۔
نونہال سنگھ نے بھاٹی گیٹ (لاھور) کے اندر یہ حویلی 1830 میں عہد رنجیت میں ہی تعمیر کروائی۔
یہ بات کسی سے ڈھکی چھپی نہیں کہ نونہال سنگھ رنجیت سنگھ کی وفات کے بعد 1839سے 1840 تک ایک Defecto حکمران رہا۔
نونہال سنگھ زیادہ تر ایسا حکمران تھا جسکےدوسرے شاہی درباروں سےاچھے
تعلقات رہے۔
اس کی یہ حویلی سکھ عہد کے طرزِ تعمیر کا بہترین شاہکار ھے۔
یہ حویلی برطانوی راج میں ایک طویل عرصہ "Victoria Girls School" کیلئے مختص رہی۔ داخلی دروازے کے دونوں طرف بڑے سائز کے محافظوں کی پینٹنگز جن پر آج پینٹ کر دیا گیا ھے۔
