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۔

رہے ہیں آپ آ جائیں۔ 4 بجے تک جانے کا پروگرام ہے اللہ کرے کہ کام ہو جائے۔

For over 400 years, history has been haunted by Anarkali, the beautiful court dancer who was buried alive by Emperor Akbar, for her love affair with Prince Salim (Akbar’s son and the future Emperor Jahangir). But is the story fact or #fiction? The truth will surprise you! 1/11 Image
This tragic love story has many modern retellings, including the 1960s classic Hindi film Mughal-e-Azam. But if Anarkali is just #folklore, whose grave lies in the magnificent ‘Tomb of Anarkali’ in the heart of #Lahore, the former Mughal capital? 2/11 Image
The grave bears the couplet in #Persian: ‘Ah! If I could behold the face of my beloved once more, I would thank God until the day of resurrection’. It is signed by ‘Majnun Salim Akbar’ ('Enamoured Son of Akbar'). It’s the only clue we have. 3/11

I have been thinking about samosas for the last week & here is a thread about them. For starters the Samosa comes from West Asia and was originally meat wrapped in a dough cone and fried - the sambusak! The only truly veg versions are all Indian! #Samosa #Sambusak #PunjabiSamosa
I grew up in Mumbai eating what is now known as the Parsi/Bohri Samosa and which I simply knew as a Samosa. Lightly spiced lamb mince cooked with onions, green chillies and corriander, stuffed into a triangular pocket made from flat precooked sheets of samosa patti. #Samosa
These were then slowly fried in hot (not too hot) oil till golded brown & served with a typically Parsi Green chutney made with coconut, mint, corriander, peppercorns, green chutney & lime juice. These treats were rare and cherished! #Samosa

What' the link between Lahore’s oldest red-light district and two of the subcontinent’s greatest Emperors? It’s hard to imagine today but till 250 years ago, Heera Mandi was a royal neighbourhood and a hub of culture & the performing arts. Come, follow its twists and turns. 1/8 Image
#Lahore was the capital of #Mughal Emperor Akbar in the 16th century, and what later became a bazaar was set up to house the attendants and servants of the royal court. It was called Shahi Mohalla or Royal Neighbourhood. 2/8 Image
Soon, it began to throb to the rhythm, music & dance performances of tawaifs, or professional entertainers of the royal court, and mujra performances. This culture flourished and Shahi Mohalla produced names such as Noor Jahan, Khurshid Begum & Mumtaz Shanti, among others. 3/8

Thoughts on #ImranKhan: I met him briefly at @AJEnglish studios where we spoke about #Guantanamo. He was disgusted by #Pakistan’s role in handing ppl to US without any legal process like #Afghanistan ambassador to Pakistan @abdulsalamzaeef and me. 1/9
I met him again in 2011 at an event for girls’ library in Afghanistan organised by @yvonneridley. We spoke about #WoT, #Gitmo & #AafiaSiddiqui for whom he’d fought. CIA’s Raymond Davies had killed 3 Pakistanis in #Lahore & we discussed how this was the moment to get her back. 2/9
Khan opposed #WaronTerror from the outset. He marched in #London against #Iraq invasion. After becoming PM he bought peace and security to tribal areas and ended US drone strikes. He sought peace with #Taliban & honoured ppl of #Afghanistan. 3/9

🧵🇵🇰 6 March 1953: A brutal wave of anti-Ahmadiyya riots, murders, looting & attacks on the life and properties of Ahmadi Muslims spread across #Pakistan. The government’s inquiry commission labelled this day similar to the Saint Bartholomew’s Day Massacre of France in 1572.

⬇️
In #Lahore alone, three Ahmadis embraced martyrdom: Muhammad Shafi Sahib, Jamal Ahmad Sahib and Mirza Karim Baig Sahib. Due to the failure of civil authorities, a curfew was imposed on this day at 1:30 pm in an attempt to prevent the ongoing systematic killings of Ahmadi Muslims.
This Martial Law was lifted on 15 May.

Muhammad Shafi Sahib of Burma was martyred in Mughalpura. Mian Jamal Ahmad was an FSC student at the time of his martyrdom and was 17 years old. The mob that attacked gave him a chance to denounce his faith and declare himself a non-Ahmadi;

The Lahore High Court (LHC) declared the Ravi Urban Development Project unconstitutional on Tuesday, directing the Ravi Urban Development Authority (RUDA) to return money it had acquired for the project to the Punjab government.

#Pakistan
In his decision that was reserved on Dec 21 last year, Justice Shahid Karim said RUDA failed to prepare a master plan in accordance with the law. He added that any scheme without a master plan is contrary to the constitution.
According to the LHC judge, Section 4 of the RUDA Amendment Ordinance violated Article 144 and the ordinance itself was unconstitutional. The judge said the agricultural land could only be acquired when there are proper legal mechanism is in place.

#Hindu Funerary Monuments:
Ordinary Hindus are cremated after their #death except for the saints. According to religious traditions, they are buried, and their shrines are called #Samadhi. The term Samadhi in #Hinduism also refers to an elevated state of mental awareness. 1/ Pic - Rajesh Avhad
Death by Samadhi usually involves inhumation rather than cremation on a pyre. However, samadhi memorials may or may not contain the remains of the deceased. This ritual occurs in 3 stages- taking Samadhi, the burial of the body, and site construction. 2/
The belief is that body of a saint or guru should be preserved as a symbol of sacred power. In this context, the #Hindu memorial is similar to the #Buddhist stupa, where relics of Buddhist teachers are buried and worshipped. 3/

“1999 Summers #Lahore
 
Slowly pass the languid summer noon hours

Like the blossoming, on our terrace vine, of flowers.

The streets are quiet at this time of the day

The cricket matches of early morning, now seem far away.
I was Afridi and the Bakery Road boys didn’t miss my catch

I lost my wicket and we lost the match.
 
I re-calculate the days and feel content

21 days since the last time to school I went

69 more to go; an eternity

Faintly recognisable strangers, my textbooks, seem to me.
Early June 99 it is, life can’t be better

Cricket, video games and love for Shoaib Akhtar.

At times, I am a fighter pilot of Shahpar, out to destroy the enemy’s base

My BMX is my F-16 and across the deserted roads we race.

Meanwhile, in #Pakistan, the country's political+military leaders are held hostage by extremist Islamists, literally forced to reconfirm their allegiance to Islam! The hordes threaten to storm the capital. Perfect script for a historical drama reliving 11th century in 21st. #TLP
...meanwhile, in #Islamabad, which resembles #Baghdad just before the Mongols stormed it. [Or #Rome as Nero fiddles]

Reported divisions within PM #ImranKhan Govt on how to deal with banned #TLP religious group threatening to storm #Pakistan capital #Islamabad. Meanwhile, discontent inside Punjab Police, where officers believe Govt and state abandoned them before religious extremists.

We didn't know better then. As we celebrated cricket, Gen @P_Musharraf launched #Pak Army into #Kargil. Dec 18, 1999 Capt Nadeem & L/NK Laikjaan & others were sent on reconnaissance patrols. We gave Pak cricketers a standing ovation, Pak Army firmed up defences on Kargil heights
530 Indian families lost a son, a brother, a husband, a soldier in the #Kargil war. In the months preceding Kargil, #Lahore bus journey was hailed as a game changer that would herald an era of peace. Pak sent one team to Chepauk, another with Assault rifles & Arty guns to Kargil.
We could have been fooled then but now we have access to information even from #Pakistan. The architects of the plan Gen Musharraf, Lt Gen Mohd Aziz Khan (CGS), Lt Gen Mahmud Ahmed (X Corps Cdr) & executed by Maj Gen Javed Hasan, (FCNA) & Brig Nusrat Sial (62 Bde Cdr) #FactsFirst

Punjab Transit Authority officials on Tuesday briefed the chief minister, Usman Buzdar, about the progress on the scheme to launch electric buses in major cities of the province. #dailyscooptv #ecofriendly #ElectricVehicles #busses #pakistan #lahore #usmanbuzdar #punjab
Last month, the Punjab government released Rs3.4 billion for the procurement of 200 eco-friendly electric buses.

The scheme would not only help mitigate the effects of environmental pollution but would also make the public transport sector more cost-efficient.
The meeting also discussed the proposals regarding the dispatch of the new vehicle framework in various urban areas as well as the fixing of orange line metro charge.
