British Army Officer Drunk and Arrested Banyan Tree in Pakistan: Strange But True

Banyan Tree
Banyan Tree in Pakistan has been under arrest for over 100 years

Hard to believe, but yes the unfaked biography of this Banyan tree over past 100 years. The world is a place where we often come across with strange things with absolutely no logic. But this Banyan Tree in Pakistan fades all those lists of bizarre news that you read every day.

Not only is this, but the story behind Banyan Tree also very strange. Moving to the past, over a hundred years ago, in 1898, a banyan tree located in Landi Kotal army cantonment area was arrested by the British Army Officer James Squid.

He saw an old banyan tree that is lurch towards him while he was in a drunken state. Squid ordered the soldier to arrest it immediately. Even after hundred and eighteen years later, the tree’s punishment continues.

Over the years passing, it still stands in the same spot with the chains tied and the board hanging on it includes “I am under Arrest”. According to some residents, through this act, the British signalled the locals that they would face the same punishment without any warrant if they went against the government.

Whatever the reason may be, the story of the tree has made the area popular among the people. Landi Kotal is a small town in Pakistan, situated in Federal Administered Tribal areas. It is the tourist destination due to the historic Kyber Pass.

Landi Kotal is at the western edge of kyber pass that marks the entrance of Afghanistan.  If you visit this town, you can witness this unusual banyan tree kept chained to prevent it from moving.

But, Goswami encouraged argumentative declarations in recent course of the year. Times-now editor is blaming all criticism by them in the name ‘professional jealousy’ someone who is unable to tolerate the success of TimesNow.

Barkha mentioned her antipathy against the media’s silence on Goswami calling then ISI agents. “Imagine, a journalist actually exhorts the government to shut down sections of the media, misrepresents them as ISI agents and terror sympathisers, calls for them to be tried and acted against. And our fraternity remains locked into politically correct and timid silence,” wrote Barkha.

“Times Now calls for gagging of media & for journalists to be tried & punished. Is this man journalist? I am ashamed to be from same industry as him. What’s striking is his brazen and cowardly hypocrisy. So he drones on and on about Pro-Pakistan Doves without one word on the JK alliance agreement that commits the BJP and PDP to talks with Pakistan and Hurriyat and is silent on Modi’s own Pakistan outreach- neither of which I object to- but since Arnab Goswami measures patriotism by such views why he is so silent on the government? Chamchagiri?” Barkha on a Facebook post.
