LAHORE WAS ONCE HINDU, AND INDIAN, TILL THE "BASTARDS AND BITCHES" OF ALL-INDIA CONGRESS PARTY SURRENDERED IT TO THE MUSLIMS, THE IDEOLOGICAL COOLIES AND MORONS OF SAUDI ARABIA.
LAHORE WAS FOUNDED BY LUV, THE SON OF SRI RAM CHANDRA, AND LATER BECAME THE SEAT OF THE MIGHTY SIKH KINGDOM. IT HAD, AND HAS, NOTHING WHATSOEVER TO DO WITH MOHAMMED OF ARABIA, THE LEADER OF BEDUINES WHO SPOKE ALIEN ARABIC, NOT ANY NATIVE INDIAN LANGUAGE.
LAHORE WENT TO THE DARK PLUNDERING BANDITS AND SAVAGES, NOW KNOWN AS PAKISTANIS, BECAUSE THE INDIAN LEADERS WERE EITHER TOO COWARDLY OR TRAITORS. ALL OF THEM WERE TOO CHEAP TO BUY OR BEND.
.......Lahore temple, gurdwara in dilapidated state
Lahore, The oldest Hindu temple in Pakistan's cultural capital dedicated to the elder son of Lord Ram is in a dilapidated state, as is an ancient Sikh shrine.
"The city's oldest temple, dedicated to its founder Loh, is in an atrocious condition in the Lahore Fort and has been closed to the public for years.
"A Sikh temple in the fort is also deteriorating and has been closed for a hundred years," Daily Times reported Friday, quoting sources in the Archaeology Department.
Loh is how the elder of Ram's twin sons, Luv, is referred to here. He is credited with founding this city, considered the cultural capital of Pakistan.
Ram's second son Kush, known here as Kash, is believed to have founded Lahore's sister town of Kusawar, or Kasur. Loh's temple is near Alamgiri Gate beside the fort's old jails. "The temple was closed until 1985 during General Zia-ul Haq's regime, because the jails were controlled by the police and civilians weren't allowed in.
"After that, the temple was opened occasionally for visits by the fort officials. But in 1992, after the Babri Mosque in Ayodhya was razed, the temple was closed because of the threat of vandalism," Times quoted the sources as saying.
"Magicians consider the mud around Loh's temple to be very powerful. Pirs and magicians send their clients to get mud from around or inside the temple to make potions," Times said. Local and foreign Hindus have often tried to visit the temple but found it closed. An introductory plate giving visitors information about the temple was once found next to it, but has now been removed.
Asked why the temple was closed, a guard at the fort said it was on orders from above.
A fort spokesman told Daily Times the temple was closed for repair and the gurdwara was shut because there was "nothing to see" on the inside.
A Times reporter who entered Loh's temple with permission from the fort administration was told by an employee it was the first time anyone had ventured there in 22 years.
"The temple was dirty inside. Thick spider webs covered the walls and it smelt bad. There were no signs of repair work being carried out," the newspaper said.
The gurdwara in the fort was built when Maharaja Ranjit Singh ruled Lahore. Located outside the Shish Mahal, the temple has been closed for a hundred years.
Times said Lahore's Sikh and Hindu communities had officially and unofficially requested the fort administration to open the two temples.
"Sikhs from Gurdwara Dera Sahib, which is near the fort, even offered to pay for the renovation of their temple, but they received no response," the newspaper added.

........Pak doing nothing to restore Sikh, Hindu temples
...................Lahore, Apr.16 (ANI):
The current feel good factor between Pakistan and India may all be very well, but the fact remains that Hindu and Sikh temples across Pakistan continue to remain in a state of disrepair and deterioration.
For instance, Lahore oldest temple dedicated to its founder Loh (the son of Lord Ram) is in atrocious condition and has been closed to the public for years. A Sikh temple in the Lahore Fort is also in a decrepit state and has been closed to the public for a hundred years.
Archaeology Department sources told the Daily Times that Loh's temple located near the Lahore Fort's Alamgiri Gate had been closed until 1985, because the jails next door were controlled by the police and no civilians were allowed in.
Thereafter, the temple was opened to the public at brief intervals before permanently being closed in 1992 after the razing of the Babri Mosque in Ayodhya. Local and Hindus from other countries had often tried to visit the temple but found it closed. An introductory plate giving visitors information about the temple was once fixed next to it, but has now been removed.
Asked why the temples were closed, a guard at the Fort said it was by order from above.
The Sikh temple in the fort was built during Maharaja Ranjit Singh's rule of Lahore. Located outside the Sheesh Mahal, the temple has been closed for a hundred years. A Fort spokesman told the paper that the Sikh temple had been closed because there was "nothing to see".
The chipped door to the temple is barred with a rusted lock. The stairs leading to both temples have been destroyed, so there is no easy entrance

THE CITY BELONGS TO SECULAR INDIA AS SHE WAS WITHIN THE FRONTIERS OF 1947 BEFORE THE UNCALLED FOR TREACHEROUS SURPRISE ATTACK BY THE MUSLIM MORONS AND BULLIES.
