The story of the last one year is in front of us all and we all know that I don't need to repeat it, but I want to highlight some things here so that you can compare the trap laid by Imran Khan with today's situation. Who are in the closed street and in whose
hands is the spread!
When #Imran Khan was going to reach Pindi by taking a long march, General R. Bajwa was very nervous and he had very little time left!
In regime change, Bajwa was promised an extension in London that after removing Imran Khan, you will be given an extension!
After that Imran Khan had to clear the way for Nawaz Sharif by disqualifying him and again Nawaz Sharif had to be qualified with Imran Khan!
In the meantime Imran Khan was to be put in jail and the party was to be divided into pieces.

Surreal visuals from #Dadu.

The tragedy is immense.

The destruction beyond measure.

Prayers for the Almighty's mercy.

Water till where the eye can see and beyond.

How will these waters drain?

How will life for the dwellers of these lands ever resume normalcy?

Deena Kaur, daughter of Gurcharan Singh was abducted, converted & forcefully married to a muzlim in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa yesterday!😡

Whose responsibility are the Hindu Sikhs who were held in Pakistan as hostage population, post 1947?
Ashok Kumar Bajaj, caretaker of a Dayaram Darbar Sahib dharmshala along with residents, were attacked by muzlims in Rohri, #Sindh .

Pakistan is a live hell for Hindu Sikhs
& the only Land of Hindus in the world, fails to call Herself #HinduRashtra
What do we need to #WakeUp ?
How different is the situation of Hindus at the hands of muzlims in India?

In the post-truth age, when the study of history faces stiff competition from a reckless #Mythistory, and facts are not even referred to, students and scholars must counter this trend more strongly than before.
“Islamic invasion of India, The Biggest Hoax in History”.
A thread. Image
The Indian sub-continent faced multiple invasions and incursions since recorded history began - likely before as well. Aryans, Huns, Scythians, Bactrians, Greeks, Kushans et alia, all made their way into what now encapsulates the geographical boundaries of India, over millenia. ImageImage
As such, there is no singular event, episode or arrival that may be defined as “The Islamic Invasion of India”, in historical terms. From at least the 13th century onwards, military competition for political domination was primarily between Islamicate dispensations themselves. Image

سہون (سندھ)____تاریخ سے چند اوراق
پاکستان کا چپہ چپہ تاریخ سےمالا مال ھے۔
عہد قدیم کےحوالوں میں جس "سیوستان" یا "سیستان" یا فارسی "شیوآستان" نام کےشہر کاذکر ملتا ھےسہون ممکنہ وہی شہر قدیم ھے۔
دریائےسندھ کی شاخ ارول (Arul)، جو لاڑکانہ سےبہتی آتی ھے
کے کنارے واقع شہر سہون 600 سال پہلے کے صوفی اور معتبر بزرگ لال شہباز کی وجہ سے زیادہ مشہور ھوا اور مرکز توجہ بنا۔
بعض مؤرخین یہ بھی کہتےہیں کہ مقدونیائی حکمران (Macedonian King) اسکندر اعظم نے جس ھندوستانی پہاڑیوں کے راجہ سمبس (Raja Sambus/Greek King - 329 BC) کا شہر بتایاھے وہ
سہون ہی ھے۔
اسکندر اعظم کے حملے کے وقت (326 قبل مسیح) یہ خطہ "Pattala" کے نام سے مشہور تھا۔
سہون میں واحد عمارت وہ بیضوی شکل قلعہ ھے جو اب کھنڈر بن چکا ھے۔ یہاں سے پورا شہر نظر آتا ھے۔
خیال یہ کیا جاتا ھے کہ یہ قلعہ اسکندراعظم نے اپنے حملے کے دوران تعمیر کیا تھا۔

When the line of divide was declared on Aug 17th, the one way to escape from Pakistan was CLOSED, huge massacres happened on the railway station. Amritsar border made it possible for some Hindus to escape from Karan side since it was just few miles away..
The border of Amritsar on Indian side made it possible for some Hindus to escape through Karan side (🇵🇰)since it was a few miles away.
Few who could escape towards Firozepur were shot dead by muzlim troupes who held the bridge of Sutlej river on their way.
All the trains from Lahore, Montgomery, Multan & Sindh that arrived on the crossing point of Lahore Firozepur Delhi line & Lahore Multan Karachi line at Rewind in Lahore carrying Hindu Sikhs, were attacked, the railway tracks were were full of corpses…

Gurdwara Pehli Patshahi is a Gurdwara, a place of worship for the Sikhs, located in Lakhpat of Kutch district, Gujarat, India. Guru Nanak on his way to Mecca stayed over in the town during his second (1506-1513) and fourth (1519-1521) missionary journey called Udasis.
The descendants of the host established Gurdwara here in early 19th century. This Gurdwara have his relics like wooden footwear and palkhi (cradle) as well as manuscripts and markings of two important heads of Udasi sect.
I have been there during my visit to Ursh Sharif of Sufi saint Haji Pir. #Kutch and #Sindh have a significant population of Nanakpanthis. @SGPCAmritsar should send yearly Gurmat prachar committees in #Kutch.

سادھو بیلو (دریائے سندھ کنارے، بمقام سکھر)
Sadhu Belu (Sukkur, #Pakistan) 1823
سادھو بیلو کیا ھے؟
سکھر اور تاریخ کے مابین بہت گہرا اور قدیم رشتہ ھے۔
سکھر شہر (پاکستان) کے پاس دریائے سندھ کے جزیرے پر واقع یہ ھندوؤں کے مقدس ترین مندر ہیں۔
عام خیال کیا جاتا ھے کہ1823 ImageImage
میں اداسی پنتھ سے تعلق رکھنے والے ایک عقیدت مند پجاری "سوامی بانکھنڈی" نے اس مندر کو بنوایا تاکہ ہندو برادری اپنی قدیم روایات کو دوبارہ زندہ کر سکے۔
چودھویں صدی میں سندھ "اداسین پنتھ" عقیدے کا سب سےبڑا مرکز ماناجاتا تھا اور کسی زمانےمیں سادھو بیلہ کے مندر کے اطراف میں گرجاگھر اور ImageImageImage
پارسی برادری کی عبادت گاہیں موجود تھیں۔
مہاراجہ بانکھنڈی کے اس مندر کو تعمیر کرنے سے جھل بنسی (پانی کی پوجا کرنے والے)، سورج بنسی (سورج کی پوجا کرنے والے)، اور اروڑ بنسی (بدھ متی) اوردیگر دھرم کو ماننے والے سب فرقے یکجا ھوگئے۔

In 2018 a workshop was held by @IUCN to develop a management plan for #Astola. Since then..ZILCH! It is 2022. Status in limbo. Is it to be 'low take' or 'no take'? If former, which level of 'take' or activity is permitted. If latter, what alternatives for beneficiaries @dpr_gob ?

Thank you @UNFPAPakistan for the honour of asking me to moderate the #WDD @SindhGovt1 seminar on the occasion of #IWD2022 titled
'Gender Equality Today for a Sustainable Tomorrow' @SyedaShehlaRaza @bayramgul_unfpa
It allowed me to point out some important work at policy level to mainstream #Gender issues, like #ccGap document by #IUCN Pakistan & @MoCC with @theGCF readiness support to work in tandem with National #ClimateChangePolicy by highlighting interventions in 6 priority sectors
Progress was narrated by #WDD rep. on #genderfriendly new laws, & amend. in existing laws is heartening. Look forward to their wide implementation. Also about measures about safety of women & safe houses like DarulAman @SyedaShehlaRaza @UNFPAPakistan @bayramgul_unfpa @SCSWPK

Aishani and Rahul walked along the Sindh, as part of our #MovingUpstream fellowship program.

This map shows their journey route from Seondha to Narwar. It isn’t always a linear journey when walking along rivers.

Handmade maps are a great tool to prepare for field work. It really helps draw routes and locations into your memory.

Take a look at these hand drawn maps by Aishani Goswami, before going to the river.

#Hindu #Funerary Monuments - Chhatri

Chhatri is a memorial chapel built over a #tomb found throughout the region of #Rajasthan, #MadhyaPradesh and #Maharashtra. These memorials commemorate the death of rulers, their consorts, relatives and the elite. 1/🧵
If Samadhis were funerary monuments of saints in #Hindus, Chhatris were #Rajput's choice of the memorial. They made sure that the memory of the chivalry of their ancestors passed on to the next generations. Though, all Chhatris did not necessarily contain the mortal remains. 2/
Chhatri i.e. umbrella, first appeared as a canopy above the tomb in #Islamic #architecture. #Hindu kings transformed the tomb into Chhatri. By the 16th C, Rajput courts had started building Chhatris. It was a place where a noble was cremated, memorialized and later worshipped. 3/
