The architecture and plan of Badshahi Masjid which was built by Shah Jahan's son Aurangzeb in Lahore are closely related to that of the mosque. Before the Revolt of 1857, there was a madrasa near the southern end of the mosque, which was destroyed during the revolt. However, it was unclear, how the blasts occurred. Among the casualties, one was in serious condition, whereas other eight people sustained minor injuries. The then imam, Bukhari commented "here is anger among our people but I am appealing to them to maintain calm".
