I am not sure but I have changed the following:

  • 'Mahajan school' is best replaced by 'Mahajani schools' as this can be found by Google search.
  • pasJumnawool probably refers to Pashmina wool
  • I did not know this but 'Word synonyms' suggests that "fillip" means boost, etc.

I have read about the incidence with the foundation stone being moved - Yes, if you can find this, it would add to the knowledge-base. Many thanks, das Hari Singh 06:03, 17 October 2007 (EDT)

No Need

The basic fact is that the foundation stone is laid by a Muslim . There is no need to rely on the stories spread by RSS's(Hindu fanatics) which is anti sikh.Always believe in truth.
