Basant – still a mystery

Raza Rumi

It appears that Basant yet again is attracting a huge interest among Lahoris and Pakistanis. It is still not clear whether the government will allow it or now. However, people want to celebrate it – on February 28. Let’s hope that the avid fans of kite-flying and those who want to celebrate the spring weather are not disappointed.
Lahore Nama will keep all the readers updated on Basant news and views.

  1. well so nice of you, well i dont think that govt will lift the ban as its hardly few days left and lahori’s wont celebrate basant as i have seen last year too, it was celebrated in all cities of pakistan but not in lahore, even this year i am coming for basant, m leaving for lahore tomorrow from uae, but i am still confused what lahori’s will do as its sure that govt will not give permission or the stupid kite flying association will trick people like last time by just extending the date and making everyone fool, basant should be this weekend and come one lahori’s if i can come from abbroad every year for basant, what has happened to u all? lets show unity and celebrate basant this year please

  2. plz basant ki permission dey do plz lahore k elawa her city main basant ho rahi hai lekin lahore main kin nahi plz goverment permission dey

  3. pzl open the basant

  4. there is no affect from all your requests, its now in ur hands u want to celebrate it inspite of ban, which i am sure like last year lahori’s will freak out and will show cowardness

  5. yar busss karo open kar do basant

  6. Saalon pehle log kehtey they LAHORE LAHORE HAI. Abb yeh baat ghallat sabit hoti hai. LAHORE BAKWAS HAI. Yahan Basant nahin hai.
    Baqi sub shehron mein Basant hai. Rules should be same for every one.

  7. Khuda ke wastey Basant khol do, siraf 2 din ki baat hai. Yeh haseen mausam kabhi laut ke nahin aaye ga. Sir Shahbaz Sharif plz ijazat dain. Allah aap ko kamayab karey.

  8. Sir Shehbaz, aap ke paas kahan time hai k aap humari baat suney, main iss ummeed pe likhta hoon ke shayed aap tak baat pauhanch jaye.
    I am dying to celebrate Basant.

  9. basant have become a political issue this year rather than anything else, goveronor wants to celebrate, so CM will never allow basant. So dont be hopeful in this regard afterall our all politicians are selfish and eggoist, so if you want to celebrate than we all have to celebrate on our own this weekend.

  10. Dear Usman,

    It means, there is no value of Governor, I give u a practical example, if vice principal of a school says that there would be funfare, and next day principal says I will not allow this. It means no value of Vice Principal like our Governor.

  11. Yaar main ek school teacher hoon. Poora saal iss din ka wait karta hoon, lekin at last yeh politicians hamara dil torr daitey hain.
    Woh log arrest hon jo firing kartey hain ya chemical string use karte hain.

  12. Jabb bhi free hota hoon hasrat se aasman ki tarraf daikhta hoon k shayed koi mojza ho jaye aur Basant ho jaye. Yeh mausam aata hai kitney saalon mein.

  13. Main Arman Bhai se ittefaq karta hoon. Basant honi chahiye.

  14. yaar arman bhai yehi to problem hai yeh politicians pichly 60 saalon sey humein bewaqoof bana rahy hein aur apus keh maslon mein phansy howe hein, humein khudh kuch kerna hoga, mein itni dorr sey ajj pakistan araha hoon sirf basant keh liey, agey daikhty hein lahori iss baar phir durty hein or basant manaty hein

  15. i hope after disqualifying Sharif borhters Governer will take the charge of Punjab and would be allowed Basant and lift ban on kite flying, because he has already announced as. Dear Lahorian’s please never be diappointed. we will surely make bassant. if any body reciece any date of Basant please tell me. i shall be thank ful to him.

    Basant celebrations likely after change of govt: KFA

    * KFA president hopes Basant will be celebrated as Governor Taseer in favour

    By Ali Usman

    LAHORE: There are bright chances of celebrating Basant and preparations for the festival have commenced with the change in the provincial administrative setup, Kite-Flying Association (KFA) officials told Daily Times on Thursday.

    The KFA has been campaigning for Basant since months, and held several meetings with senior government officers, including the home secretary and the law minister, but could not convince them to allow the celebrations for the spring festival. On Tuesday, the association protested at the Lahore Arts Council against the Punjab government’s decision to continue the ban imposed on kite-flying.

    KFA: The association said Governor Salmaan Taseer was in favour of celebrating Basant, and they were hopeful the city would be allowed to celebrate the festival on March 1. KFA President Khawaja Nadeem said the festival was closely associated with the city’s culture. The KFA general secretary said people from Dubai, Europe and US were coming to celebrate Basant, adding that there was no concept of celebrating the festival without flying kites. He said preparations for Basant could be finished in a very short span of time if the sale of kites and string was allowed. “The hurdles in the way of celebrating Basant have gone with the change in government,” he added.

    Eminent artist Dr Ejaz Anwar, who has depicted the essence of Basant in his paintings, said the festival was a celebration of the spring season and was not associated with the Indian culture. He said night Basant should not be allowed, adding that police could monitor the activities during the day. Citing safety reasons, he said aerial firing and use of prohibited string should not be allowed.

    National Sufi Council Vice-Chairman Yousuf Salahuddin said Basant had the potential to become one of the largest festivals of the world. He said the festival could be used for improving the country’s image if strict administrative measures were taken. He said Basant could be related to Urs of Madhoo Lal Hussain, adding the government should plan ahead for next year’s Basant. He said the government could invite 500 tourists to the event, and the number could be increased gradually. He said it was a Punjabi festival, and the government should take measures to make it a big festival instead of imposing a ban on it.

    Basant is being celebrated in Gujranwala, Wazirabad and Faisalabad on Friday, and the night Basant would also be observed there, Daily Times has learnt.

  57. DCO links Basant to kite flyers’ guarantee

    Staff Report

    LAHORE: The Punjab government can only give permission to celebrate Basant if the Kite Flying Association (KFA) assures that no one will be prey to metallic twine, said District Coordination Officer (DCO) Sajjad Ahmed Bhutta on Saturday.

    He was addressing the KFA representatives and kite traders. A law would be enforced that would make safety antennas mandatory for motorcyclists on Basant. The KFA officials suggested fixing a day for Basant. The DCO formed a 10-member committee to give recommendations on February 6.

    He said the recommendations would be sent to the chief minister, the chief secretary and the Home Department.

  105. Naveed Raza & Jennifer Phillips From CANADA

    LAHORE – It is very strange we are showing enthusiasm to the festivals of the aliens at a time when the nation is besieged with manifold crises.
    The first one festival is the Basant, which has Hindu origin, and the second is Valentine’s Day falling on February 14 (today) having origin to the Latin Priest Valentine, who in his frivolous pursuits set an example of illegal love affairs, which is denounced in Islam.
    Citizens expressed these views during a survey conducted by The Nation here on Saturday. We should condemn Valentine’s Day, as it is a shameful and sinful act, which leads to western culture that is the hub of illegal relations among youth, a 19-year-old student Tayyaba Yasmeen, of Govt College for Women commented. We should forbid students and Muslims to celebrate Valentine’s Day, she said, adding that the day is attributed to young, unmarried people and students, who celebrate the day by holding hands or having illicit relations, which they are not supposed to be doing in Islamic society like in Pakistan.
    Government College University athlete Hafiz Mohammad Safdar said the celebration of romance and love was a Western tradition and therefore should not be supported in Muslims countries especially in Pakistan. He said Muslim culture is a pure of vulgarity, adding that Valentine’s Day is not in accordance with Islamic and Eastern culture.
    Asma Hamza, 22-year-old student of Punjab University said every Pakistan should seek forgiveness from Allah for our sins than celebrating evils acts like Valentine’s Day. “One flower giver should think if someone else send flowers to his sister then what will be his feelings,” she questioned.

  112. I am not discussin upon the definition of “culture” ,culture is made by number of people. taklkin about lahore cultrure was BASANT FESTIVAL, let us ponder over why this festival was banned why this culture was not preserved , was not protected why it was banned …cant people for two days place wire infront of bike for their own safety..without any proper strategy this festival was banned the foreigns use to visit pakistan and thus enhances the economy growth.
    our hotels, airlines companies, local shop purchasing , wages increase among poor class, and this all became depleted because of poor strategy and negligence.
    we do not have our own happiness everything is dissovle in the name of “religion” . we should think on broader scale as well..as suffocated, desperate and disappointed vicinity around making the people’s thinkin worse day by day . please provide some good news so that we could celebrate our happiness and forget our sorrows.

    thanks for the cooperation ,

  113. message for Cheif Minister of Punjab

    Dear All,
    I would like the Respectable CM of Punjab to draw his attention on these points listed below:
    • Don’t let this beautiful festival vanish.
    • Bring strict law’s and enforce them.
    • Kite flying is a Sports, it has no religion or sect. So, please ignore how some people portray it.
    • Hatred towards this festival will never end it, but it will make matters more worse. My recommendation is to make this sports a envoirment friendly and safer for all human beings.
    • Kite Fliying has no dangers only if done with the right twine(dor).
    • A true kite flyer would never fly kites with metallic or chemical twine(dor).
    • Government with the help of (ALL PAKISTAN KITE FLYING ASSOCIATION or LAHORE KITE FLYING ASSOCIATION) should standardize the type of twine allowed.
    • No matter how BIG the Kite is made, if the twine(dor) is of the resonable thickness it will never slit anyone’s throat. So in this regard The Pakistani Government should approach the twine(dor) maker’s and oppose a strict law that they should only make twine(dor) of the thickness to which is good to fly kites but should not slit anyone’s throat. In parallel, in order to save this colourful BASANT FESTIVAL, Government should immpose strict law on the motorcyclist’s that they should use the wire to cover the top of the bike and wear helmet.

    Please Note: We can fly kites all year long if all of us take the right measures for it.

    Kite Flying is my passion, i am crazy about kite flying, I will do what ever it takes to restore this festival.
    @ Adnan Rashid: i totally agree with ur views.
