executed, now Shadman Chowk Lahore
Note: We are thankful to Prof. ( Dr.) Chaman Lal J.N.U. who provided all the above photographs, relating to this post. We are extremely sorry for not having inadvertently mentioned it earlier.
Some of the Pakistani intellectuals have initiated a campaign to raise a national memorial to Bhagat Singh and his companions. They are greatly hurt by the plight of places associated with Bhagat Singh in Pakistan. Here are some interactions on this subject on the face-book:
what a shame for punjabi nation, the birth place of national and international hero in such a shameful and miserable condition.

Does someone live there now? This place should be restored and be given the historical status.

Yahan dunlup ka gadda to nahi , par sukun ka ahsas hai yahan sir par chhat to nahi par , par sath hi anupasthit bhotikta ki pyas hai na dar hai kuch lutne ka , na logo ka jeewan star par kiya jane wala parihas hai meri dharti ka har ek gaon anmol hai apne aap me khas hai ...........
I am thank full to all friends who agreed with me. we talk about religious places to restore, but we never talk about such a historical places. I mentioned in my article about rai Ahamad Khan Kharal a great Punjabi hero. I wish Chaman Lal would have visited Kharral's grave. I am sure he would have cried. We punjabis are brain washed about our heros. we have long way to respect and adore our heros.

Dear Asif,I really wish to visit 1857'd Punjabi hero Ahmad Khan Kharl house,earlier Ahamd Salim has also mentioned about him,but don't know,when will I get a chance. My salute to the memory of Ahmad Khan Kharl,who brought glory to Punjab by his resistance in 1857, when many feudal lords like of Patiala were courting the British colonialists
Let me ask all Punjabis of the world. Is there any Punjabi who can take an initiative to start a campaign or movement to take over Bhagat Singh's birth place as our national asset and build a monument there.

@Syed Asif Shanker, this should have been done very long ago, but it is never too late, the people should take the initiative and the govt should take it from there. It is a historical place..
