M A RAHMAN CHUGHTAI
The artist belonged to a remarkable family of artists, architects, calligraphers, mathematicians, and astronomers.About twelve steps can be traced which moves the family from Lahore to Herat, then Timurid Capital. Very simply, Abdur Rahman Chughtai was son of Mian Kareem Baksh, son of Raheem Baksh, son of Mian Salah, son Mian Karam ud din, son of Amir ud din, son of Imam ud din, son of Lutufullah Muhandis, son of Ustad Ahmad Mimar, son of Yusuf Burkurdar, son of Hussain, son of Abdul Lateef. Ustad Ahmad Mimar was born in Lahore, after Ustad Yusuf had come from Herat with Emperor Babar. Ustad Yusuf was a student of Ustad Sinan of Turkey. What Ustad Ahmad did here is phenomenal? Eventually he became the Chief Architect of Emperor Shah Jahan and is responsible for most of the buildings in Shahjahani era. History records him as Architect of Red Fort Delhi, and Jamia Masjid Delhi. . But the most spectacular creation of his is the design for Rauza e Mumtaz Mahall more properly known as Taj Mahal. The recent memoir by Wayne Begley and Ebba Koch for the Harvard University records all this. Ustad Ahmad gave the world the Taj Mahal, Chughtai the artist did it in painting and gave a new School o Art. The Story Teller depicts the Taj Mahal as well as Chughtai handling of it. Genes rebound and creative genes rebound most.

  2. It is really nice to know that 45 countries have read us in one way or the other. We had something like 329 views in two days out of 2829 views in three months. We are very happy in telling the world about the softest side of Pakistan, the intellectual Pakistan as it was meant to be.

  3. Hello the world. 58 countries, 5207 views. Pakistan is a rising country with love for the worlds,. Do not let media fool you of our existence. We are Muslims and firmly believe in Islam and Islam means PEACE for the world. Try us. All foreigners who come here leave happy and contented with us. The people not the Government. Love you!

  4. I was wondering if you knew where I could find the private papers of the former US Ambassador to Pakistan Mr. Langley.

    1. We have a letter on record as well as other American Embassy archives. Chughtai Sahib was offered an invitation to USA by him as well as by Schuyler Wallace of Columbia University. All friends of the highest order. Those Americans were a special breed, patriotic to the core but they had COMPASSION too. Nowadays pragmatic approach makes people devoid of any principles., Best wishes from Pakistan! Contact me at chughtaimuseumlahore@hotmail.com for friendly communication.

  5. UNIQUE VISITORS FROM USA 5035, FROM INDIA 1072. Two nations communicating with each other on our blog. Well done! A hand of friendship is overdue. AFTER USA MOST INTEREST FROM INDIA.

  6. One year completes. Views nearing Thirty thousand, countries 130. It gives us a good feeling that we are presenting the cultural and intellectual face of Pakistan, darkened by the political face of our country. It is time not for new Pakistan, but it is time for regaining the creative spirit of the 1947 struggle and achievement, with million of thanks for Dr Allama Iqbal, Quaid e Azam and Ghulam Ahmad Pervaiz. Thanks Allah first for giving us this opportunity. Blessings for Planet Earth, a world view of life.

  7. In Aman kee Asha there was a severe attack on our site and it remained SUSPENDED for some time. Sorry for this, and thanks to Allah for saving us from these kind of cheap tirades rom morons on the other side.

  8. I am told that someone tried to register blogghughtaimuseum.com in attempt to clone our site for nefarious reasons. Be warned of same.

  9. Welcome. We like to keep in touch with you. I will share some information about the rangamati mosque. Can send you printed matter. Provide address and phone number. Best wishes!

  10. 150 countries around 60400 plus views . Whoa. I feel few Pakistani sites reached so many countries. We are really the voice of unheard Pakistan,

  11. Dear Mr Arif
    With Ref to Hafiz Abdul Majid (Kot Abdul Malik) I want to see you to discuss astrolabes and celestial globes . Do you visit Islamabad ? regards

  12. FINALLY 100,000 VIEWS AND 161 COUNTRIES. WE ARE HAPPY THAT WE DID A GOOD JOB AND PLEASED THE WORLD AND THROUGH ART BROUGHT DIVERSE GROUPS TOGETHER.

  13. 107000 ticks views on blog and yet few people bother to tick likes. We try our best to give to you what no other source can. We need to be appreciated so that we know your inclination and serve you better. Make it a two way process.

  14. Funny kind of people in the world expressing love for persons for whom they actually have no knowledge. Some seem to think that Raja Jaipal as some kind of icon when he seem to be a coward in all ways and could not defend his way of life as with a couple of thousands he soon had lakhs of Muslims in Lahore. Do not forget we are Muslims and Islam does not recognize ethnic and racial overtures. So grow beyond caste and become egalatarianism oriented.

  15. An Indian writer in his malice calls the Taj Mahal as MUMMY MAHAL. What a shame? In Islam if a burial is temporary, the person is buried n AMANAT, to be taken out again for reburial. That is what happened with Queen Mumtaz Mahal. To call her body a Mummy is a contempt according to Islamic laws. Beware!

  16. The art on this blog is so beautiful! I am truly inspired by it. I have a blog as well if you would like to see some of mine, I provided a link below. What kind of style is this art? Are there artists that you get your inspiration from?

  17. Secular loonies trying to rewrite our history for lump sum benefits. Muhammed bin Qasim still sends a fiit of Diarrhea to these lunatics and tearing chachnama with illusions of being wrong and trying to change time line. Even Mahmud Ghaznavi, Qutbuddin Aibeg, Tipu Sultan upsets your nerves. Drink the cup of your own shame! Shame on your existence modern Abu Jahls.

  18. Yes we are moving forward. Americans are loving it and leading the list of viewers in the world. 150,000 views and 176 countries. VOW INDEED! Pakistan is a country of peace and message of ART for the world. We are spreading goodwill about our selves. Be with us in our endeavour.

  19. WRITTEN BY A JOURNALIST IN DAILY TIMES AND ROOM FOR ANALYSIS:
    However, the state’s apathy to artists knows no ideological bounds. Without a land grant from the government, the indefatigable Chughtai had decided to single-handedly establish a museum in Lahore. He died fighting with the Lahore Development Authority in 1975 over property rights to the land on which he had established the Chughtai Museum with his own expense. Many decades later, his son Arif Chughtai now carries his legacy alone by himself and struggles with dignity to keep the Chughtai Museum from coming under the axe.
