LAHORE WAS 75% HINDU AND SIKH IN 1947. LIFE WAS PEACEFUL AND NORMAL. SHOPS WERE FULL OF GOODS AND CUSTOMERS, SCHOOLS AND COLLEGES WERE EDUCATING THE YOUNG FOR THEIR LIVES AHEAD. BEFORE THE CITY FELL TO THE BRITISH RULE IN 1849 AD IT HAD BEEN THE CAPITAL OF THE POWERFUL SIKH KINGDOM UNDER MAHARAJA RANJIT SINGH, THE MOST TOLERANT RULER WHO LOOKED AFTER THE WELL-BEING OF ALL CITIZENS WITHOUT DISCRIMINATION. DURING 40 YEARS OF HIS REIGN NOT ONE CRIMINAL WAS HANGED. IN THE EARLIER ISLAMIC PERIOD LAHORE WAS THE SEAT OF THE MUSLIM GOVERNORS OF THE PROVINCE.
THE BRITISH RULE SAW THE GROWTH OF THE CITY. IT WAS AN IMPORTANT TRANSPORT HUB OF THE PROVINCE. IT WAS ON THE FAMOUS GT ROAD THAT WAS BUILT BY A MUSLIM EMPEROR, SHER SHAH SURI, THAT STRETCHED FROM PESHAWAR TO KOLKAT.
DURING WORLD WAR 2 PUNJAB experienced an economic boom due to large scale military recruitment and
THEN SUDDENLY the Province was struck by the DEVIL. It was broken up into two parts, West (Draci;a) and East (Secuiar). Immediately in the west ETHNIC CLEANSING began with millions massacred, abducted, raped and forced out of their homes. Their crime? TO BE NON MUSLIM.
What happened later is known to the world. One military dictator after another usurping POWER to make the lawless nation "civilised"! But all attempts failed since they could never discard the BOOK that preached hatred between Momins and Kafirs. So it was with God's approval that first the KAFIRS were wiped out. But then they turned upon each other. MOHAMMED UPON MOHAMMED. One Islamic sect declaring the other "incomplete" Muslims and wiping them out. At last we come to the present day (March 11, 2013) when thousands of CHRISTIANS are crying and wailing under open sky looking at the charred remains of their homes with everything gone or LOOTED.
HERE IS THE NEWS:
PAKISTAN, March 9, 2013.
Lahore, more than 100 Christian homes burned over blasphemy charge
by Jibran Khan
The attack followed altercation between a young Christian and a Islamic barber: the Muslim insulted Christianity and then reported the boy for blasphemy. The mob looted, stoned, doused in acid and then burned the Christian settlement. Local imam: "We'll find the Christian and kill him."
Lahore (AsiaNews) - This morning, an angry mob set fire to over 100 homes in the Joseph Colony Christian settlement, near Badami Bah (Lahore). Residents were forced to flee and at least 35 people were injured. The attack resulted from an accusation of blasphemy registered against one of the settlement residents, Sawan Masih, who yesterday afternoon had an altercation with a Muslim.
According to initial reports, the 26 year old Christian went to the Islamic barber for a haircut, but the store owner, Imran Shahid, refused to serve him. A heated discussion arose between the two, and the Muslim reportedly used offensive words about Christianity.
Together with other people, Shahid then went to the nearby police station, the group recorded a charge of blasphemy against Masih (art.295C), arguing that the young man was drunk and had insulted the Prophet Muhammad. Shortly after, the police arrested the Christian. The maximum penalty under that law is life imprisonment.
The anger of the Islamic community did not subside however, and this morning a large group of people ransacked Joseph Colony, then set fire to the homes. "We were working like every day - Salamat Masih, a resident of the settlement told AsiaNews - when we started to hear a noise, and suddenly a wall of people fell upon the colony. They threw acid and stoned our houses, then set them on fire. The authorities intervened only when everything was destroyed". The local imam said Sawan will be killed when found.
Human rights associations, such as Masihi Foundation and Life for All rushed to the scene to help the victims. For Msgr. Rufin Anthony, bishop of Islamabad-Rawalpindi, "it is very sad to see that minorities in Pakistan are not safe and are targeted for their religion. It is vital that we work for national harmony.
"BROKEN BHARAT, Your turn is not far. You, too, kept the same lot (KAFIR KILLERS) with the SAME Book, back in India after giving them a "pound of flesh and a TON OF BLOOD" in 1947."
In that year the Indian leaders were so nervous and terrified that they surendered ONE THIRD of their country to the Muslims and forgot to send them all to their Pakistan. Their behaviour was so ridiculous, bordering on ludicrous and idiotic, that they were embracing the ENEMY who. at the same time, was doing their "FINAL SOLUTION" (ENDLOESUNG) is Pakistan.
