Demolition of Maharaja Ranjit Singh's statue in Pakistan

Demolition of Maharaja Ranjit Singh’s statue in Pakistan: Since the removal of Article 370 (Article 370) by the Government of India in Jammu and Kashmir, anger has been growing in Pakistan (India) against India. Due to this anger, two people damaged the statue of Maharaja Ranjit Singh located in Lahore city of Pakistan on Saturday. Both the accused have been arrested.

A nine-foot-tall statue of Maharaja Ranjit Singh, who ruled the northwestern Indian subcontinent at the beginning of the 19th century, was unveiled at his Lahore Fort in June, on his 180th death anniversary. Maharaja Ranjit Singh died in 1839. In this bronze statue, Maharaja is seen wearing a Sikh dress, sitting on a horse with a sword in his hand.

Police have arrested two people in this case and a case has been registered against them under the blasphemy law of the country. Both the accused were angry about the withdrawal of special status from Jammu and Kashmir. The suspects are related to Tehreek-Labbaik Pakistan, an organization of radical Molvi Molana Khadim Rizvi. The Walled City of Lahore Authority, responsible for the affairs of Lahore Fort, expressed surprise at the incident and said that the statue should be repaired immediately after Eid.

Its spokesperson Tania Qureshi told PTI, “This is a very unfortunate incident. We will increase security at Lahore Fort so that no such incident happens in future. The work of repairing the statue will be done next week. Once repaired, it will be reopened to the public.”
