Maharaja Ranjeet Singh made Lahore his capital and was able to expand the kingdom to the Khyber Pass and also included Jammu and Kashmir while keeping the British from expanding across the River Sutlej for more than 40 years.
After his death in 1839 the internecine fighting between the Punjabi Sikhs and several rapid forfeitures of territory by his sons, along with the intrigues of the Dogras and two Anglo-Sikh wars, eventually led to British control of the Lahore Darbar ten years later.
For the British, Punjab was a frontier province, because Punjab had boundaries with Afghanistan, China, and Russia. Therefore, the Punjabis unlike the Bengalis and the Sindhis were not allowed to use their mother tongue as an official language due to a fear of Punjabi nationalism because of that, the British first introduced the Urdu as an official language in Punjab.
After an era of Ranjeet Singh, during the rule of the British Empire in Punjab, British rulers imposed martial law in Punjab. To govern Punjab, they brought Urdu-speaking Muslim and Hindi-speaking Hindu bureaucracy and establishment from UP, as a result Punjabi became a socially and politically depressed and deprived nation due to the hegemony of Urdu and Hindi language, Gunga Jumna culture. It resulted supremacy of UP-ites and UP-ite mindsets in policy making and decision taking in national affairs and foreign relationship, managed, motivated and sponsored by the British rulers to eliminate the Muslim Punjabi, Sikh Punjabi, Hindu Punjabi and Christian Punjabi into different religions and languages to secure their rule over the last captured land and martial race of India.
However, during British rule in India, Muslim Punjabi, Hindu Punjabi, Sikh Punjabi and Christian Punjabi were still a nation because of common land, language, culture and traditions. The religion was a personal subject, although, religious dissimilarity was a natural reality, however, clans moreover, communities were the institutions for social interaction and charity work. Punjab was a secular regime and Punjabi was a respectable and honorable language, culture and nation in India.
In 19th century due to politics of congress, dominated by Hindu and Hindi speaking leaders, Hindu Punjabi started preferring Hindi language, culture, and traditions instead of Punjabi. Later on, Muslim Punjabi’s did the same due to the influence of the Muslim League, dominated by the UP-ites Urdu speaking Muslim leaders and presence of UP-ite Muslims in Punjab.
As a consequence of preferring Hindi language, culture and traditions by Hindu Punjabi’s and Urdu language, culture and traditions by Muslim Punjabi’s, the characteristics of assimilation to accomplish the sociological instinct started to switch from “Nation to Religion” and “A Great Nation of Sub-Continent Got Divided and Get Emerged into Muslim State and Hindu State” as well as, started receiving the reward of hate and regret from every honorable nation, in addition to the humiliation, loathing and abuse from Hindi and Urdu speaking persons too. This is the punishment of Punjabi’s for not respecting their motherland, language, culture and traditions. Anyway, Evolution exists everywhere, without realizing that, it is at right direction or wrong.
For decades, Punjabi’s have been in trouble because of lacking interest in Punjabi nationalist politics, ignorant of the Punjabi language, unaware of the Punjabi culture and uninformed to the Punjabi traditions because of preference to the Urdu language, Gunga Jumna culture, and UP-ite traditions.
Especially, the Punjabi had migrated from the Indian side of Punjab to Pakistan were already under the domination of Urdu language, Gunga Jumna culture and UP-ite traditions, therefore, they accepted and owned the hegemony of Urdu language, Gunga Jumna culture and UP-ite traditions in Pakistan by surrendering the Punjabi language, culture, and traditions. In addition, they also facilitated and supported the UP-ites to dominate Urdu language, Gunga Jumna culture, and UP-ite traditions by means of suppressing and eliminating the languages, cultures, and traditions of original and actual entities of Pakistan i.e. Sindhi’s, Balochi’s, Pukhtoon’s and Punjabi’s (due to many factors).
Hence, time has proved that; independence of Pakistan at the cost of splitting up Punjab with the blood of 2 million Punjabi’s and displacement of 20 million Punjabi’s, furthermore, lending support to UP-ites for domination of Urdu language, Gunga Jumna culture and UP-ite traditions by means of suppressing and eliminating the languages, cultures and traditions of original and actual entities of Pakistan i.e. Sindhi, Baloch, Pukhtoon and Punjabi, in conjunction with, the hegemony of UP-ite Muhajir's in national and foreign affairs bureaucracy, military and civil establishment, skilled and technical professions, political and media organizations, was a blunder by the Punjabi's due to political immaturity, irresponsibility, and pettiness.
Par Hun "Urdu Tay UPites" Di "BLLI" Charani E Paway Gi.
Urdu Speaking UP-ites, those concurred foremost cities of Punjab during British rule and after the creation of Pakistan are a major problem for Punjabi Nation and Punjabi Language. As they also speak Punjabi therefore, it is difficult to distinguish them that they are Punjabi or Urdu speaking UP-ites.
By camouflaging in Punjabi skin, the UP-ite Urdu-Speaking Muhajir is the main conspirators in Punjab to confuse Punjabi people and degrade Punjabi language along with support to Urdu language by the propaganda of “ Urdu is the Binding Language of Pakistani People”, rather Language of Muslims, which they taught them as a Muslim and being the students of Darul Uloom Nadwatul Ulama, Darul Uloom Deoband, and Barelvi institutions. Darul Uloom Deoband founded in 1866, the Darul Uloom Nadwatul Ulama was founded in 1893 and Barelvi schools were established in 1904 in Uttar Pradesh.
