The dilapidated condition of Maharaja Ranjit Singh has been noted by Manjinder Singh Sirsa, a Delhi-based senior politician.
He shared pictures of the Summer Residence of Maharaja Ranjit Singh whom he hailed as the “Great son of Punjab Soil” and informed that this was built in 1830 to 1837 and located at Rasool Nager in Hafizabad, Pakistan. He requested Pakistani government to protect this piece of history by noting that “its condition is very pitiable.” Further, he said that “I wish Government of Pakistan makes an effort to renovate it and conserve it.”
Many historic buildings have become defunct and have become ruins in Pakistan. A sustained effort is needed to protect these buildings.
