    SYMBOL OF FIRST WAR OF INDEPENDENCE 1857!


      FROM CHANDAN NANDY
     
    New Delhi, Nov. 17: 
    Home minister L.K. Advani today requested Myanmarese counterpart Maung
    Aye to ensure that Yangon take proper care of Bahadur Shah Zafar’s
    mausoleum at Mandalay, where he was banished by the British.
    Advani believes that Bahadur Shah, the symbol around whom India’s first
    war of independence was fought in 1857, is more Indian than Pakistani
    and fears that Islamabad might try to appropriate the remains of the
    last Mughal emperor because of his origins.

    He told reporters today that Pakistan’s chief executive Pervez Musharraf
    might raise the mausoleum issue during his December visit to Myanmar and
    try to convince Yangon that the emperor who died in the infamous
    Mandalay prison in 1862 is part of Pakistani history.

    “Pakistan may try to appropriate Bahadur Shah’s remains even though he
    was the symbol of India’s first war of independence. In fact, Bahadur
    Shah also represented a section of India’s fight against colonialism,”
    he told a select group of reporters.

    “So I asked my Myanmarese counterpart whether the Indian government can
    contribute money for the maintenance and upkeep of the mausoleum.”

    Aye is believed to have assured the home minister that his government
    would do everything possible to restore the mausoleum to its original
    glory.

    Advani, however, said that the vice-chairman of the State Peace and
    Development Committee — the country’s ruling junta — made it clear that
    his government wouldn’t do anything to “convert the mausoleum into a
    religious place”.

    But he added that the “Indian government would be happy if Myanmar
    accords due recognition to Bahadur Shah’s grave”.

    After putting in his request, it was Advani’s turn to reciprocate with a
    similar gesture.

    He told Aye that the Centre will do its best to restore the grandeur of
    a particular place in Ratnagiri, south Maharashtra, where the remains of
    the last Buddhist monarch of Burma, King Thibaw, lie buried.

    King Thibaw died in Ratnagiri, an ancient centre of Buddhist
    architecture, during his exile following his defeat in the Anglo-Burma
    war in the 1860s.

    Its very unfortunate ,that pakistanis nly know history after 47 .What happenned in 47 partition,creation of pakistan was intimately connected to 1200 yrs of muslim presence in Indian subcontinent.
    What Jinnah was part of as a last legacy of muslim role in indipendence of india from the Tipu Sultan /Hyder Ali fight against foreign british intrusion of india continued with Sirajuddoulla of Murshidabad,Bahadur Shah last moghuls call for Gaddar uprising against the british1857 set in motion for independence almost 100 yrs down the road.For every drop of muslim blood shed fighting the british in the indian national army of the subhas chander bose & shah Nawaz to Afghan resistence to british occupation,.muslims earned there share of india for long time.

      noboby remembers major shahnaz khan here in india .taj mahal is considered in india as a symbol of muslim suppresion.
      indians esp the rss types have forgot the sacrifices and many muslims who also laid down thier lives for indian freedom struggle
      mughals are just remebered as the people who suppressed hinduism for many centuries and muslims are just a legacy of that according to the bjp and rss.

        Kabir,thanx for info.
        Indian govt. through the university grant commision money out of education dept,has already prepered the script for indian history incorporating lies &engineering of scheming hindutva writers like Arun Shourie,Varsha bhosle,Eldred Konstad,Rajaram Jha, etc.But when the future students find the inconsistencies & claims of such history ,truth cannot belie the fact that despite 1000 yrs of muslim rule .indian remained hindu predominantly ,unlike muslim from Spain or Balkan where they were subject to genocide.The fact india even today remain 85-90 % hindu atleast in being non muslim says much to the credit of secular Akbar,babur jehangir shajehan ,even if Rss have villified Aurangzeb etc.

        The numbers speak for itself despite 50 million female fetus abortion in last decades or so,---500 / year bride burning in Delhi are alone & abandonment of female child leading worst prostitution situation in 40 million female potential carrier & victims of AIDs waitng to be counted.If hindu population despite such adverse condition against female survival,the slightly greater 3-5 % rate of growth of muslim population which is really result of inherent muslim practice of fairness &NOT MULTIPLE MARRIAGE OR MORE LARGER FAMILIES.
