Untitled[edit]

Any reason as to why this rather nice image (http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/2/24/Mosque_amjad_2006.JPG/800px-Mosque_amjad_2006.JPG) keeps on being removed?

who the hell removed the part of sikh misuse of this mosque.why they are afraid of history if they call them self good and civillized people.

Badshahi Mosque is the 5th largest mosque in the word. Please tell me how the List of largest mosques should not be included under the "See Also" section? 116.71.173.179 (talk) 07:29, 16 April 2009 (UTC)

The links are already in the article and there is no need to have them twice. Take a look at Wikipedia:Layout#"See also" section, which says "Links already included in the body of the text are generally not repeated in "See also"".

Peacock terms[edit]

Please refrain from using peacock terms such as the "glorious reign of Ranjit Singh". Ranjit Singh's rule was a disaster for Muslims and the Mughal Empire and Lahore was plundered of its Mughal heritage under the Sikhs, who damaged and misused the Badshahi Mosque and robbed the Lahore Fort of its inlaid jewels. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 116.71.176.191 (talk) 13:15, 27 December 2009 (UTC)

Unsourced content[edit]

In May 2013, I had deleted a lot of unsourced content from this article per WP:V. Someone had restored the material promising to add proper sourcing for the unsourced content, but not much has been done. It is more than a year and a half now, and enough time has been given to add sourcing. Enough is enough. I am not going to see any value in any further promises, and am likely to delete all the unsourced parts within a few days. Thanks.OrangesRyellow (talk) 17:07, 29 December 2014 (UTC)
