While I would never deny anyone eercgenmy medical treatment, the line should be drawn at elective medical treatment. Your points are absolutely correct, btw. They -don't- ask for proof of citizenship while signing up people for Arizona Medicaid. The fact that Arizona is also pretty much bankrupt is hardly a coincidence.

It is one of the oldest cities in Pakistan. Kasur is adjacent to the border between Pakistan and India and is a tourist attraction because of the guard changing ceremony.

It is known for its very spicy fish, a sweet dish called Andrassay, Falooda and Kasuri methi. It is also the birthplace of Noor Jehan, the Pakistani singer and actress who gained popularity in the 1950s.

There are different traditions about the name of Kasur. One is that the town was founded by Kasur/ Kasu the son of King Ram and named after him as Kasurpur. (One of Kasu's brothers was Loh and the City of Lahore was named after him.) According to another tradition the town was founded by Pashtun families from Kabul (today the capital of Afghanistan) during the period of Mughal emperor Akbar. The Pashtuns constructed 12 small forts known as Kot. There were about twelve Kots named after the heads of various families.kasur kasur kasur kasur kasur tents tents tents tentstents tents tents tents kasur kasur kasur tents cancas

[edit] History

[edit] Early History Kasur had been allotted by the Mughals to Pashtuns or Afghans of Kabul and still contains a colony of Pashtuns. However the site was occupied by a Rajput town long before the period of Muslim rule.


[edit] Modern history On July 1, 1976 the city of Kasur became the capital of Kasur District after the area was detached from Lahore District.

Kasur as a district headquarters town is the most important after Lahore. It is built upon the high bank which marks the termination of the Majha and looks down upon the lowlands of the Satluj Hither. It is a place of great antiquity and is identified by the historians as one of the place visited by the Chinese pilgrim, Howang Tsang in the 7th century CE but it does no appear in history until late in the Muslim period when it was settled as a Pashtun colony from east of the Indus. These migrants entered the town either in the reign of Baber or in that of his grandson Akbar and founded a considerable principality with territory on both sides of the Satluj. When the Sikhs rose to power, they met great opposition from the Pashtuns of Kasur. The chiefs of the Bhangi confederacy stormed the town in the 1763 and again in 1770 and although they succeeded in holding the entire principality for a while, the Pashtun leaders re-established their independence in 1794 and resisted many subsequent attacks. The town of Kasur was incorporated in the Kingdom of Lahore by Ranjit Singh in 1807 and had been a municipality since 1885.


[edit] Customs and traditions Kasur past has been nurtured by Sufi Saints like Baba Bulleh Shah, Baba Kamal Chishti,Imam Shah Bukhari, on one hand and by musicians, singers like Ustad Bade Ghulam Ali Khan, Ustad Barkat Ali Khan, Ustad Amanat Ali Khan, Malka-e-Tarrannam Noor Jehan etc. on the other hand. The important cultural events in the district are the Urs of Baba Bulleh Shah and Urs of Baba Imam Shah Bukhari as well as the Urs of Baba Sheikh Bhago. Kasur is also known in folklore for its slippers. A famous Punjabi folk song is :"Jutti Kasuri, Paire na puri, hai rabba ve sahnu turna paya." (The slippers of Kasur don't fit me, Oh God, I had to walk!.[1]


[edit] Kots (residential areas) The city of Kasur is an aggregation of fortified hamlets, called kots, small in themselves, but together forming a considerable town. In 1592 12 principal residential colonies were built under the rule of Mogul Chagatai Genghis Khan's descendant Jalaluddin Muhammad Akbar. The names of 12 kots are:

Kot Pacca Qila Kot Nawan Qila Kot Azam Khan Kot Ghulam Mohammad Mohayyudin Khan Kot Murad Khan Kot Haleem Khan Kot Peeraan Mohammad Khan Kot Fateh Din Khan Kot Usman Khan Kot Badar-ud-Din Khan Kot Ruken Din Khan Kot Nawab Hussain Khan

These residential areas were built later on.

Methi from Kasur / Qasoor in Punjab (Pakistan) is very famous in its fragrance throughout the country and known as Kasurii Methi

Steaming is considered the best method of cooking leaves; in this the vitamins are retained and the vegetable become palatable. The dried leaves can be composed to pulses for their protein content. They supplement the lysine-deficient cereal diets. They have an aromatic odor and agreeable spicy taste. Kasuri Methi leaves is an important ingredient of curry powder and juicy and fry vegetables . .

Historically, fenugreek was used for a variety of health conditions, including menopausal symptoms and digestive problems. It was also used for inducing childbirth.

From BeijingEdit

  • A C130 is expected to fly from Beijing in next 3 or 4 days i.e. around 20th Oct. It will carry tents and other relief goods purhcased from Beijing by donors all over the world. These tents are 4x4m, water-proof and of good quality, while costing just around 3000 rupees. You can see the types of tents and other purchase information here.

Lahore: From Iqbal KhanEdit

We had been desparately looking for tents locally in Pakistan
but without success. Today, a friend of mine informed me that he is
able to find tents in Lahore for Rs 6666 each. This is more
expensive than their usual price of around Rs 2500-3500. 
We're likely to buy some from the donations I have from friends and
family.

However, I wanted to send this email to others in case you're
interested. If you have friends/family in Lahore or even
Rawalpindi/Islamabad area, please have them contact me so
I can direct them. Or, notify your favorite charity to do the same
if they need to buy some. Or, I can buy for you.
