Federal Minister for Railways Sheikh Rasheed Ahmad on Friday (April 12) while announcing to donate his famous Lal Haveli for university said that he once used to sell books outside the haveli.
Two weeks ago, he vowed to convert Lal Haveli into Women University. Today, he made an announcement in the public that he donates all his property and Lal Haveli for universities. The public appreciated his decision.
The Lal Haveli is located in the central part of old Rawalpindi, Punjab, Pakistan near Raja Bazaar. This was was built by Dhan Raj Saigol who left for India leaving the Haveli to his mistress Budhan Bai and thence it is said to have been the abode of that woman before the independence of Pakistan.
Saigol had a Masjid and a Temple built within the confines of his Haveli, masjid for the woman and a temple for himself. The woman left the place for good when her brother was murdered here.
