AN UNKNOWN CHIEF ARCHITECT OF AURANGZEB’S TIME
MIR IMARAT AMANULLAH AND THE QAZI OF DELHI
QAZI REPLACED BY QAZI HAIDER THE NEW PERSON
It is not easy in any times. For an architect to report on the corruption of a Qazi of the times. But Amanullah did and succeeded in proving to the Emperor of the corruption charges against the Qazi. The case is on record as the Qazi was replaced by another, that is Qazi Haider. A similar incident of the removed Qazi is there. The name is known as Qazi Abdul Wahab Gujarati. The Qazi instigated the Emperor to have Lutufullah Ahmad killed, and it was the love of people of Lahore, that Lutufullah escaped to Assam in those times. What an ordeal it must have been? We have the direct report of same in a poem by Khairullah Muhandis son of Lutufullah Muhandis, who had also fled to Gul Bahar colony in Afghanistan in those times.
Qazis are meant to give justice. But Qazis on rampage do otherwise. Allah saves us all the time!
It was when Emperor Aurangzeb Alamgeer declared a general pardon, that Lutufullah Ahmad came back to Lahore. A manuscript of SEHR HILAL, a bay nuqta poem on ethics, exists, which is dedicated to Emperor Aurangzeb Alamgeer. That is history in action! Reflect on the past. It was like our time too.
