It is with great pain and anguish I bring to your notice that, by the south-east gate of the fort wall of Bijapur (Vijayapur) namely the Allapur gate lays a Canon, an ancient treasure of the great Adil Shahi Kingdom.

The Canon previously situated on the Burj, now has warped on the ground because the outer wall of the Burj had collapsed long back. Because of no proper restoration, relocation the Canon is gradually left unattended, thus resulting in rust and corrosion. The surrounding vicinity chiefly used for open defecation, urination and dumping ground is resulting in further deterioration of the Canon.

Since past 1 year I have been writing letters to all the concerned departments, but no concrete action has being taken.

Hence, I request you all, join hands together to sign this petition in order to relocate the said Canon and realize the restoration of such antique, priceless jewels of the past which presently is lying in filth and is waiting to be rescued by the concerned authorities.

Thanking you

Mehriz Khatib.
