JUST TIRED OF HEARING THIS RUT ABOUT HYBRID WAR – QURANIC TEACHINGS ENOUGH FOR ALL KIND OF WARS.

JUST TIRED OF HEARING THIS RUT ABOUT HYBRID WAR
QURANIC TEACHINGS ENOUGH FOR ALL KIND OF WARS.
Gabarata nahin

All days a normal life with a normal person is punctuated with unknown happenings. A foot slips, and you hurt your ankle. Your hand gets caught in a drawer that is painful. A wasp bites you out of nowhere and gives you a swelling you cannot hide. Your walk is restrained by oil on the pavement. A tyre puncture drives you nuts. Caught without an umbrella on a sunny day and it starts raining. One can narrate a million things which happen ll day. And when you solve them, deal with them, you are learning the art of vigilance. This is Allah’s way of telling you that however smooth things may be, there is a storm lurking every where.

Perseverance

The Quranic teaching is always there. And then one cannot forget the eternal message of our Quaid e Azam in telling us about UNITY, FAITH AND DISCIPLINE. Walk on any road of ours and what do you see. Everybody trying to outwit and race with the other in the capitalist drive of some Wall Street. No one can cross a road for it looks like a disturbed jungle there, with the traffic wardens impotent of any traffic rules or regulation. Phones in their hands as phoning messaging on zig zagging motorcycles. Hell has broken on our roads for stress has made us literally mad. A vehicle strikes another vehicle and out comes the two drivers with abuses and coiled fists, exchanging blows, with no results.  No one wants to stop at red light, no one wants to move on green light. Lazy bones or sick of authority we are all. This is the sour fruit of democracy. Making rich richer, and poor poorer. Anger is boiling in society as it has become an unfair society to all. Mostly the middle class people are harassed most. Why worry about hybrid war, for hybrid is beyond the average citizen of Pakistan. He is facing Reality war of politicians not giving a hoot to the people of Pakistan. Justice is something for which you need plenty of money. No one thinks of dying, the misery of living for some is enough. And the bloated stomach and over used genitals drive away all thoughts from the corrupt. Corruption seems a word coined ages ago and no longer relevant to present society.

And yet in all this misery, people are still laughing. Sickening news on media evoke no compassion at all. For Hazrat Umar a hungry dog would bring retribution from Allah for the Caliph. Here more the deaths, it is easier to rule. In fact Freemasons have a solution to the problem, curtail the population of the world by 75% and things would be fine and the devil will govern the world. Making slaves of the world and few elite to rule. The morons see the way out in usurping all the more.
Never give up

So a four letter word to Hybrid war. Face the reality. The lv and compassion of Allah gives us the concept of eternal TAUBA. Tauba here will not come on its own. The RIGHT has to win over the WRONG and unfortunately, FORCE is necessary. One institution can do that. The politicians have failed us. If the Army does not rise, it will fail us too. And then not only geography will change, the Quran will be set aside for more centuries. So hold on to the Quran. Not with running the fingers on its lines, or kissing it, or putting it at a higher place in the house. Implementing its message. That is the Quran. Hazrat Umar implemented it long ago, but then Emperor Aurangzeb Alamgeer implemented it too. That is why he incurs the wrath of the kafirs. For he sought the Sarat ul Mustaqeem very well in our society, with the legal code of FATWA ALAMGEERI, and implementing it in letter and spirit. Quaid e Azam told us that Mussulmans do not lose courage in time of crisis. Come out and save Pakistan!

Tandra Devi has written other books too, like Village theatres and the Ten plagues of Civilization. She belonged to the Theosophical movement in India. Her esoteric poetry had appeal to special group of people and possibly never caught on with the public. But there is depth in her work. She writes:

O I sighed for a breeze
    From the far-off mount to blow.
And I cried, because all these,
    Beloved! should pain me so–
Because your loveliness
    Must fade away from me.
And death and parting stress
    Must drown us in their sea.
Years after her death, she still calls attention to essential feelings of love and parting. Allah may have mercy on her soul!

A UNIQUE GALLERY OF PAINTINGS ON WALLS OF LAHORE FORT AS TILE MOSAICS – NOTHING IN HISTORICAL NOTES BUT START TO PERIOD OF EMPEROR JAHANGEER

A UNIQUE GALLERY OF PAINTINGS ON WALLS OF LAHORE FORT AS TILE MOSAICS
NOTHING IN HISTORICAL NOTES BUT START TO PERIOD OF EMPEROR JAHANGEER
SHAH JAHAN’S COURTIER MULLA TUGHRA ATTRIBUTES TO USTAD AHMAD MIMAR
Islamic Hindu symbolism

In 2015 we put up a blog on the Tile Mosaics of Lahore Fort, and like all others puzzled by some of its features. As there is no historical account, in recent years scholars did comment on same. But nobody got up on the rampants to study them in detail. Obviously it goes to the credit of Agha Khan programme for such restorations, that details have started coming up. Of course we have the original book of the Archaeological Survey of India in 1920 and the illustrations and writings done on same by scholar J. Ph Vogel, who indeed did a tremendous job at that time. There were some illustrations done of same in 1890, and some of them are even preserved today in the Cambridge University library. Foreign visitors never touched same or dismissed them like William Barr (1839) as being grotesque. Even today Yael Rice a modern researcher alludes to their lack of public visibility. Everybody approaches art and culture with the present spectacles of time. I was invited to mount the steel trappings and see them close, but it seems hazardous to me.

Simurgh Lahore Fort
Effaced Simurgh Dragon

The most surprising newly discovered thing is that some of these tile mosaics have inscriptions. Not many but few are there. And two names appear on same. One is Hussain and the other Abdullah. In all cases name of two painters who drew the drawings or painted them (nobody would have the guts to put up their names for public consumption except painters themselves). A worthy addition to list of Lahori painters. There are two inscriptions on a panel of Calligraphers. One says Allah Baqi and the other says Ya-fatah, Allah Akbar. The surprising thing is that Abdul Baqi Adad was a famous calligrapher of that time, and Al-fatah too could be the name of a calligrapher, of Akbar’s time. Alluding such things was very true for Mughal artists.

Inspirations tile mosaics
Research Wayne Begley

Another surprising thing is that there are no panels related to Hinduism. A common theme (appear at many places) at that time were images showing a Simurgh attacking a Gaja-simha (a lion with elephant head). Simurgh is a bird from Islamic context and a Gaja-simha from Hindu symbolism. The appeal of that image was the Simurgh attacking a Gaja-simha showing the superiority of Muslim culture over Hindu culture. On the Lahore Fort the Simurgh is there attacking a dragon, whereas the dragon is having a fierce Garuda like face, the Simurgh not. So although Gaja-simha is avoided being shown here, the animal has particular connotations. And another clarity is absence of any Christian cherubs on the tile mosaics. The much proclaimed fancy of Jahangeer with images of Jesus Christ and Mary not there in any way. Researchers point to the perhaps image of an Englishman, and even with the greatest fancy, cannot understand his placement there. For some he could be Thomas Roe, when Jahangeer does not even mention once Thomas Roe in any capacity. Thomas Roe in dress of an ordinary worker belies all such claims, and with hands folded in obedience. Not worthy of being considered an ambassador here, looks more like a minor attendant. We will research on same.

Printed thesis Abdullah Chaghatai
Picture Gallery Lahore Fort

Although there are male and female fairies, there are no female images on the tile mosaics. Why? The Mughals were fond of depicting women in various poses, and their absence points to the nature of decision making in making these tile mosaics. For public, for private or for royalty alone. One can only wonder. The angels are there in the Wazeer Khan hamam Lahore, and were also there in Gola Serai Lahore of Wazeer Khan, demolished by E.D. Maclagen for security purposes before 1910. Possible other tile mosaics too for Nawab Wazeer Khan was involved in the over haul of Lahore Fort and could have carried the painters to his serai too.

Tile mosaic art
Letter of Mulla Tughra

Research would continue but the tile mosaics have been terribly neglected by western art historians and critics for reasons unknown. Our family is linked with Lahore Fort as other Mughal monuments, for we are descendants of Ustad Ahmad Mimar, Chief architect of Shah Jahan, and he is on record as being attached in work to the Lahore Fort itself. Mulla Tughra (the famous diary keeper) was with Shah Jahan in Kashmeer and in a letter addressed to Ustad Ahmad, he tells him that Shah Jahan is about to depart from Kashmeer to Lahore and should complete the works are soon as possible in Lahore Fort but then says something fantastic;

“And the highly dignified Mulla Ahmad Mimar- that discerning appreciator of new ideas of the ‘PICTURE-GALLERY’, that master of resonant language of the ‘workshop’, that designer of Wisdom’s mansions, that writer of inscriptions on the pavilion of the Royal intellect, and that architect of the Holy Temple of benedictions- has rebuilt the exhausted spirit of this writer with the tranquil mortar of his friendship.”  (published in Taj Mahal by Wayne Begley and Z.A. Desai)
This is direct evidence that our ancestor was responsible for the Picture gallery at the Lahore Fort from a writer courtier of Emperor Shah Jahan himself. Mulla Tughra was from Mashad and stayed with Shah Jahan throughout his life, and Shah Jahan was dethroned, Mulla Tughra retired to Kashmeer. His language skills were famous and he talks of things with symbolism of chess board. Skilled communicator of ideas, and surely friend of Ustad Ahmad Mimar, as others like Ustad Abdul Kareem, Makaramat Khan, and Amanat Khan Shirazi. We will add more, till then enjoy!

CONVERSION OF PRINCE DULEEP SINGH INTO CHRISTIANITY – PROJECT OF JOHN AND LENA LOGIN KILLA DAR LAHORE FORT

CONVERSION OF PRINCE DULEEP SINGH INTO CHRISTIANITY
PROJECT OF JOHN AND LENA LOGIN KILLA DAR LAHORE FORT
John Login Master killa dar of Lahore Fort

An innocent young Punjabi boy (separated from his mother forcibly) was first seduced by Lena Login with bouts of affection, at places where he would squeeze through a hole to jump into her arms, and hugged without knowing the happenings. John Login was in literal control of the Lahore fort and ready to give a Christian environment to the young Prince. A Roman Catholic chapel was made and to make its mood, paintings were put on the wall. These paintings were being borrowed from the Hindustani Bible which was in the Toshak khana and later discovered there. The Urdu bible of Abdul Masih was also there. And the Prince was given free reign to spend his time with local painters and get everything done according to his own taste.

Lena Login reports same:
“He has painters constantly employed near him at his work, which he watches with the deepest interest, and himself tries to draw and paint a little. I want you to send me out for him, a nice paint-box and material for his use, and a good book of instructions in the art of drawing and painting, till I can get him good lessons.”
Roman Catholic Chapel Lahore Fort
Roman Catholic Chapel
Duleep-Singh-osbourne-house

There was no church in Lahore at that time, so a Mughal remnant was turned into a Roman Catholic Chapel. And that too is on record:

“Residency, Lahore, Easter day, April 20th, 1849:
The service today and Holy Communion were very impressive. I wish you had been with us, for it is the very first time that Holy Communion has been celebrated here. It was even the more impressive from the service being held in the great hall of the Residency, for of course we have no church. The Communion service was of no ordinary character, many of those who partook of it had been in great peril….. I know that many of those present were in earnest in seeking God’s blessing on their work”.
Cherubs British times
Abdul Masih Conversion Pastor
Lena Login

The chapel, Christian paintings on the walls, Persian and Urdu Bible, and brain washing of a child, resulted in the end into the baptizing of Prince Duleep Singh. On 8th Feb, 1853, Duleep Singh wrote a request with a strong desire to be baptized immediately. He was by then a Master of the Gospel of St Mathew. The station church was under repair, and High Highness’s own house was chosen as the place for baptism. Lord Dalhousie accepted the advice  and by 8th March, 1853, Duleep Singh was baptized into the Church of Christ. And ready to be sent to England, to face another predator, Queen Victoria, who was mesmerized by the charm of the handsome young man. And that is another tragedy. Without reading history, people jump to pre-conceived ideas, and manipulate research outcomes. Documentation is the key to proof of any kind.

THE UNKNOWN MAZAR OF SUFI MASTER IN LAHORE FORT REVISITED – SOME RAREST PHOTOGRAPHS TAKEN AROUND FORTY YEARS BACK

THE UNKNOWN MAZAR OF SUFI MASTER IN LAHORE FORT REVISITED
SOME RAREST PHOTOGRAPHS TAKEN AROUND FORTY YEARS BACK
Grave 1

The legend of the mazar in Lahore fort was strong, and my cousin volunteered to research on it. Photographs were taken at that time but misplaced in a diary for perhaps 40 years. Discovered again just yesterday. Important heritage was rebuilt without any archival record, which is a shame. No one cares for heritage. A quick way of earning money that is all. Greed abounds in governmental organizations.

Grave 2
Grave 3
Grave 4

Ali Hujweri is considered part of Lahore. But Ali Hujweri seems to have escaped historical account, for there is little mention of him in history. Prince Dara Shikoh was a big fan of Hazrat Miyan Meer as well as Baba Lall of Benaras. In his book on the life of saints, he mentions the Dargah of Ali Hujweri and places it inside the Lahore Fort itself. He proudly tells us that he had a brand new SARCOPHAGUS made for his grave, which was of pure white marble, or for that matter even black marble.

Grave 5

Chandarban Brahman, the Munshi of Dara Shikoh tells us an additional thing. He says the Dargah as well as Lahore Fort was under the superintendence of the Hindu administrator Ishwar Dass. He further describes the Dargah of Ali Hujweri in a few words and says:

“Even though there are yearly and monthly impromptu performances throughout the city’s precincts, especially at the tombs and shrines of the giants along the path of esoteric Truth, the Thursday gatherings at the blessed tomb of the knower of mystical stages, Pir Ali Hujweri, creates an especially remarkable commotion. Darwishes and other free spirits, literati, poets, and all manners of people gather there to observe the spectacle of Divine Creation.” Rajeev Kirna’s translation.

Grave 6
Grave 7
Present condition of Mazar

There is a diva metal stand with the grave, simple and looks very old. There seems to be a big black stone on the grave, does not look like a normal sarcophagus, but could be one. Perhaps writing on it.  One does not know anything about it. The green kinari cloth is also old and full of dust. The entrances are sealed even then. Obviously in research, controversy is created with vested interests. We have no part in it. We are just recording documentations. Conclusions are for people not us.

A HARDLY KNOWN CHUGHTAI SHOW AT HOUSE OF BEGUM SHAHNAWAZ,
ARTICLE ON CHUGHTAI ART BY RAZIA SIRAJUDDIN BEFORE EUROPEAN TOUR
Catalogue Chughtai Art Begum Shahnawaz

The archives of Chughtai Museum are full of wonderful things and we share them whenever we can with people. We share a pamphlet on Chughtai Art presented by Begum Shahnawaz, with an introduction by Razia Sirajuddin. This article is not known and is before the Introduction she wrote for “Chughtai Paintings” in 1938. A brilliant coverage of Chughtai Art, reflecting the fondness of these two stalwarts for the Art of Chughtai. To our knowledge hardly anyone has even seen it. This was the prelude to a sitting at Begum Shahnawaz house in 1946, when the concept of Alhamra Arts Council was given to people of Pakistan by Chughtai artist. It was the idea of Chughtai and the political force of Jahan Ara Shahnawaz, that the first Art Council of Pakistan came into being. Today a moronic bureaucracy has no room to remember the icons of art and culture in Pakistan.

Razia Sirajuddin was an artist, a literary giant, and a personality which shined all the time. She would appear in public in a saree sort of thing, with real flowers strapped on the clothes as well as her head covering. Her eccentric outlook immediately stopped people in

Jahan ara Shahnawaz

their track. A charismatic personality, she was adept at understanding Chughtai art. Chughtai himself has written an article on her (a rare thing from him). We have written about her on the blog a few times, but this article has not been touched before in any writing. It is a brand new discovery on her analysis. Enjoy!

VARIOUS MUGHAL ANGELS ON THE TILE MOSAICS OF LAHORE FORT – NOT EVEN ONE BABY CHERUB TO DISMAY TO THOSE REINTERPRETING

VARIOUS MUGHAL ANGELS ON THE TILE MOSAICS OF LAHORE FORT
NOT EVEN ONE BABY CHERUB TO DISMAY TO THOSE REINTERPRETING
Some plaster peels off the Lahore Fort ceiling and immediately an anti-mughal aesthetic cherubs are discovered in it. Immediately it is dated to Emperor Jahangeer’s period by those obsessed with maligning the Mughals. Books are written on European influence on the Mughals, and the actual survey of Metcalfe of the history of the Orpheus inlay marble is not even taken into account and dismissed. The prejudice of Hindu scholars was already hurting our integrity, now many western scholars are at it too. Trying to teach is that the Mughals did not have abilities and they had to learn these from runaway criminals from the West. Unfortunately one of them had to be hanged in Lahore on orders of Shah Jahan himself, and Shah Jahan asserts his views on these missionaries, simply in the Journal of Fray Sebastian Manrique in 1641:
“Truly the Franguis would be great people, were it not for three grave faults; in the first place, they are Cafars (people without religion); in the second, they eat pork; and thirdly, they do not wash the parts by which replete nature expels the excess of their material paunches.”
The same can be read in Manrique journal of 1641 and is documented evidence. Manrique was not allowed to enter Asif Khan palace without first bathing in warm water and then with change of clothes. If a friar in his own journal documents for us the statement about Shah Jahan, one wonders what others could say about that affairs of things.
Not even once in his journal, Emperor Jahangeer mentions any meeting with Sir Thomas Roe. Either the meeting never took place, or it was not worthy enough to be put in the memoirs of Emperor Jahangeer. Answer that anyone! The friar Edward Terry attached to Sir Thomas Roe mentions strange thing. He says Jahangeer was only interested in paintings which had women in them.
Of course Mughals were aesthetic people. They enjoyed art and architecture. European engravings that came to Hindustan were included in their albums, but not the extent exaggerated by the Western scholars. The introduction of these baby cherubs belong to the period of British rule or fake works being sold to western consumers in Bombay and elsewhere. Even older miniatures were riddled with addition of cherubs. M.A. Rahman Chughtai, artist par excellence, had the ability to look at all this and reveal that in talks and writings. We write about them all the time too. Obviously we need more space to talks about this in detail. Till then read this:

AND WHAT REALLY PAKISTAN ARMY CAN DO TO STOP THIS CHARADE – FROM SPREADING TO AN EMOTIONAL AWAM NOT WILLING TO SEE REASON

AND WHAT REALLY PAKISTAN ARMY CAN DO TO STOP THIS CHARADE
FROM SPREADING TO AN EMOTIONAL AWAM NOT WILLING TO SEE REASON
Black Swan

We are  told again and again it is a hybrid war. That internet has made normal people berserk. You realize this that in a poor society people crossing the road cannot leave the phone out of their ear. This is total brain washing of those who cannot even afford credit. This applies to people on motorcycles and ladies sitting at the back, texting in moving two wheelers. This has been done deliberately. A woman went to an ID card office and when asked for some discernable ailment on her son, and she said it is simple, he has mobile phone in his hand all the time. It has come to all our homes. In evening and morning, you see family members obsessed with tir phones. And what are they learning. Literally or hardly anything. There is a cure for everything. A whole hall of scientists got converted into Islam after one recital. All anti-quranic attitudes. Take everything with a pinch of salt. We tell the truth here, and we are proud of same. That is a Quranic idea, telling the truth.

A black swan event

Read a professional American on the subject. We already know about the Confessions of an economic hit man and we have the book to back it up. And we add to it Nassim Nicholas Taleb, and he says is important for us:

Intellectual Yet Idiot

Intellectual Yet Idiot (IYI) is a term coined by Nassim Nicholas Taleb in his essay by the same name that refers to the semi-intelligent well-pedigreed “who are telling us 1) what to do, 2) what to eat, 3) how to speak, 4) how to think… and 5) who to vote for”. They represent a very small minority of people but have an overwhelming impact on the vast majority because they affect government policy. IYI are often policy makers, academics, journalists, and media pundits.

We do not think the Government can do anything. Only the Pak Army is left. Spread everything on the net, make this hybrid war a challenge to the nation. If required BLOCK all destructive scenes. All is fair in love and war. We are in perpectual war. Show no softness for those who want to undo our country. Make our people so strong that a hundred Black Swans will not make a difference. Hold on to the Quran itself. The way out is there.

Although the present whereabouts are not known, it was a grand cup with grand engraving and with inscriptions. It coincided with the arrival of Ali Mardan Khan to Lahore and it seems that Shah Jahan presented same to Ali Mardan Khan. Both Shah Jahan (was born in Lahore) and Ali Mardan Khan (his mausoleum was buried here) are linked to Lahore in many ways, including the passion of architecture of both.

No one tries to save our heritage. Few do try but are erased by the malignancy of society  in pursuit of material good.

AN ADDITIONAL DOCUMENT OF MASJID WAZEER KHAN – SYED BUTE SHAH THE LAST OF THE ORIGINAL MUTAVALLIS

AN ADDITIONAL DOCUMENT OF MASJID WAZEER KHAN
SYED BUTE SHAH THE LAST OF THE ORIGINAL MUTAVALLIS
Bageechi Syed Bute Shah Mutawalli

Some years back we presented a research book on the LEGACY OF NAWAB WAZEER KHAN and it contained original information found nowhere else. As new information came, we presented a small pamphlet highlighting the new information. Yet information keeps pouring in and we wrote it in our blog too. The present of the city of Wazeerabad by Mirza Izzad Baksh (the last male descendant of Nawab Wazeer Khan) to a Hindu friend, instead of his son in law Mirza Chajju Baig. We came across fresh information about the Bageechi of Nawab Wazeer Khan. We heard this first in the account of Nur uddin Chisti as a small garden in which Nawab Wazeer Khan used to sit, but there was more, as it turned in the private graveyard of the Mutavallis. .

Mutavallis Masjid Wazeer Khan

It is sad that all Muslim monuments made in good faith are contested by the later generations through conspiracies and legal suits. Materialism wins over good faith. Like our present politicians, there was no business transaction in Lahore, in which Wazeer Khan did not take a share and contemporary historians call him the most corrupt of his period. It seems that his legacy succumbed to the Makufat law itself. The honest people attached to the mosque were in stages kicked out of their domain. We will add to that.

Nawab Wazeer Khan

The Mutavallis appointed by Nawab Wazeer Khan, possibly Emperor Shah Jahan himself, also came from Bokhara, as the Imam family of Jamia Masjid Delhi. The list includes:

Syed Ghulam Muhammed Shah;
Syed Hussain Shah;
Syed Mir Muhammed;
Syed Muhammed Yusuf;
Syed Mazhar Shah;
Syed Hussain Ali urf Bhute Shah.
List is given of a number of other descendants of the Mutavallis in the attached document.
Residents Wazeer Khan Mosque 1935

The Bageechi was the private grave yard of the Mutavallis and a full description as well as a map is given of the same. Even the Kocha is named after Mutavalli Bute Shah.  There are a couple of court cases too, related to construction of a toilet and a drain pipe of waste water. Assistant Commissioners were involved in setting the drain pipe (Mori) corrected in desire. Historical record and truth laid bare. The same was presented to Dr Abdullah Chaghatai and we now present the documents after decades of same. The court case involved with Deputy Commissioner Charles Aitchison is still missing from the record. This is the open kutchery which de-seated the Mutavallis and put Mirza Chajju Baig on the throne of the mosque. The object to take the sanctity of the mosque and the power enjoyed by it over the citizens of Lahore. After decades of dispute President Ayub Khan formally annexed all these portions to the Auqaf department, much to the disarray of the old and the new Mutavallis. More later.
