CLUES OF JAINS IN LAHORE
JAIN MANDIR A DAILY WORD IN LAHORE
MAHVIRA THE LAST JAIN LEADER
Texts and Inscriptions reveal clues about Jains. In comparison to Buddhist, they wee literally more extreme in nature. Totally non aggressive, they yielded everything to others. They would roam completely naked in jungles, eat by begging only, eat in a standing position and defecate in a standing position too, without attaining the crouching condition necessary for that. One can just imagine the results. Whereas like Buddhists, Jains were wiped out of the region by the Hindus themselves. In fact we have relics of Jains in Lahore, both from under the ground as well as above the ground.The last famous downfall of a Jain Mandir in Lahore was in retaliation of breaking of the Babari Masjid in India.
Every day the word JAIN MANDIR is used in Lahore and yet no one knows anything about the JAINS. A fascinating account of a civilization which came and was wiped out of existence in a rather short period of time.
