Ruins of Punyeshwar Temple found under Shaikhsallah Durgah in Pune !

Ashadh Shuddha Trutiya, Kaliyug Varsha 5112

Pune (Maharashtra): In the premises of Chhota Shaikhsallah alias Shaikh Salauddin Durgah in Kasaba Peth, digging was going on in connection with some construction. Ruins of 1000 years old ‘Punyeshwar Temple’ were found there. (Once again, the proof of Muslim invaders destroying Hindu temples and constructing mosques and durgahs on them, has been unearthed; but it is certain that the secular (unrighteous) Congress Government would suppress this issue for appeasement of Muslims ! – Editor SP)

The temple

Mr. Pandurang Balkawade, a senior historian has demanded that the construction should be stopped and the structure should be declared as a ‘preserved vaastu’. The construction was undertaken for building rooms in the durgah. The digging has been going on for a month when ruins of the temple were found. The durgah is 700 years old. In the year 1294, Alluddin Khilji attacked Raja Ramdev Rai and took over the whole area. Some ‘Fakirs’ came to Pune at that time and they demolished the ‘Narayaneshwar and Punyeshwar’ temples to build durgahs, said Mr. Balkawade presenting various proofs for the same. The Muslims inside the durgah did not allow taking pictures of the temple and started saying that it was not a temple but a tomb. They claimed that there were tombs and it was a graveyard. The dead bodies used to be buried there by filling soil. There were stables earlier. When the Panshet dam broke and there were floods in the city, everything flowed away and only those stones are remaining now, said Ibrahim Attar, a member of Kasba Peth Muslim community. (Hindus must understand the ploy of Muslims and unite to preserve their ancient ‘structures’ ! – Editor SP)
