Gurughar in Lahore collapsed due to rain, Pakistan government never paid attention to its repair despite repeated requests

  Lahore: Due to continuous rains for the past few days, the building of a historic Gurdwara Rori Sahib in Jahman village near Lahore has collapsed. This tragic incident is said to have happened on Sunday. It is alleged that the government has never paid any attention to this Gurughar since the partition of the country. Now only one wall of this Gurdwara Sahib is left standing. This Gurdwara Sahib is located very close to the India-Pakistan border. Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji had his feet here with Bhai Mardana. In fact, the village of Jahman is located near Dera Chahal, the maternal village of Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji, and Guru Ji used to visit this village frequently as it was on the way to his maternal village. Once upon a time, a large number of devotees used to visit this Gurdwara, but due to non-repair by the government of Pakistan, the condition of its building continued to deteriorate. Pakistan historian Imran William after visiting the incident site on Monday said that it is one of the saddest and darkest days. He said that requests for the construction of this Gurughar have been made to the government for a long time, but the Pakistani government has never paid any attention to this. According to media reports, the historian said that there is a pond right next to this Gurughar, the water of which kept pouring into the roots of its building, due to which it fell down. Thus, a historical building and the religious artefacts built on it at that time were destroyed.
