All Muslims literally shudder when the Sawabis are mentioned and all would tread with utmost care even near their graves. It required some sort of foolhardy bravado or as some actually say, shamelessness to attempt to demolish the graves and mosques of the Sawabis. But it was done in 1926. Structures over religious personalities were thrown to the ground.

There was three attempts on the Grave of our Prophet (PBUH), and whole Lahore wept with shame. But nobody listened. The latest attempt was to demolish the structure to build a Parking lot there. All this is documented information and nobody can deny it.

The structures of our religious personalities are in the legacy of all Muslims. Such a decision cannot be made in isolation. A world body should have sat down to make decisions on such a matter. No one has the right to play with history. It is a World heritage site and the holiest place for Islam. No individual person or regime can make this decision on their own.
