Federal Minister for Information and Broadcasting Fawad Chaudhry has condemned the vandalism of Maharaja Ranjit Singh’s statue at the Lahore Fort.

“Shameful this bunch of illiterates are really dangerous for Pakistan image in the world,” tweeted Chaudhry.

Punjab Police tweeted that the culprit has been arrested.


A video went viral on social media in which the statue of Maharaja Ranjit Singh was being vandalised by a man.

Have a look at how people on social media are reacting to the video:

Last year in December, police arrested a teenager for vandalising a statue of Maharaja Ranjit Singh, who ruled Punjab in the 19th century. The statue was installed in front of the Haveli of Rani Jindan at the Lahore Fort. This is the third time that Maharaja Ranjit Singh’s statue has been vandalised.
