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.”

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”.

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 adviceĀ  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.

A sad end to a confused child

  1. Muslim scholarship was excellent once but the Muslim world is an array because of various circumstances. Research has become such an expensive thing that the poor dedicated scholars are not there any more. It is the time of funded research and funded research goes to those who are willing to stream line thoughts of those lobbies. So truth has gradually gone out of the picture. Assault on Islamic thought, art and culture has become routine. The new breed of scholars are like wimps, saluting the lobby fund sources for survival. No one is on any mission. Materialism has invaded scholarship. Si many gutless scholars roaming for funding. Making jehad outlaw was one thing, expressing freedom of thought was the jehad of words. Not that even there. M.A. Rahman Chughtai was a gifted jewel to Muslim Civilization. Not merely an artist but a research scholar all his own self, along with his brothers, like Dr Abdullah Chaghatai, etc. We miss scholars like Maulana Sherani, Maulvi Shafi, Abdullah Qureshi, Syed Abdullah, Dr Muhammed Baqir, Dr Waheed Qureshi, Dr Yaqub Zaki, and many others. Our Prophet told us to tell the truth, we do that. It is then that the blessings of Allah are upon our civilization.
