UNSCIENTIFIC AND UNDOCUMENTED STATEMENTS ABOUT LAHORE
PEOPLE SHOULD RESTRANT THEMSELVES FROM CREATING HULLABALLOO
I always take care in saying things about Lahore
A lot is written about Lahore and I welcome that. We are Lahoris too and stress on Lahore makes us very happy. Some years back nobody even touched Lahore as a subject. We can all make mistakes and that it normal. But when we engender fALSEHOOD by unnecessary remarks, one should avoid that.
Lahore is a Muslim City and people resent this fact very much. The efforts of many to find Hindu ruins in Lahore have resulted in zero results. At the most we find Mandirs of Lahore which are about 19th century or at the most 18th century, nothing more. And then the British started telling us stories abut Loh and Kasu, sons of Ram. First mentioned around 1692, it has never been substantiated that the same is about this Lahore. Some placed that Lahore near Icchra, others dispute that. Many even say that Lahore was somewhere near Peshawer itself. I have discussed this extensively at many places. Suffice to say that this city is MAHMUDABAD, the city founded by Sultan Mahmud Ali Ghaznavi. It is about a 1000 years old.
The city indeed has many levels, and many levels have given many artifacts. Basically the artifacts are only related to about 30 feet in depth. it is called the SINKING CITY. The streets are not coming up, the level of Lahore is going down. And this going down is not related to the Lahore City only. Just observe the houses in Model Town, Garden Town and Gulberg. The level of the houses are going down as the streets are coming up. To talk about Afghans digging for gold, raising the city’s level is for lack of proper word merely HOGWASH. The change of levels is a geological issue of time and more can be said about that.
The most remarkable statement comes from a long known friend of mine, who says that he picked up some pottery from 10 to 12 feet and had it tested at Cambridge University by getting the earthenware CARBON DATED and found the same to be 3500 years old. Some mistake has been made. This is not a scientific statement in any way. Carbon dating is only used for ORGANIC MATERIAL and for pottery thermo-nuclience is required to get even an approximate date. A hundred and one research projects has proved that 30 years mean a 1000 years. A lot of material is being collected from Lahore, and Islamic objects as well as extensive coin hordes, have been found at even 30 to 35 feet in Lahore. As Islam is merely 1400 years old and only 1200 years in the region, so Islamic subjects at 30 feet mean just that, a mere 1000 years.
The 4000 year old Mandir of Loh is merely made of British period bricks. Check it out yourself!
