In a remarkable display of religious unity and tolerance, the administration of the Sufi shrine, Dargah of Sabir Makhdoom Shah, presented visiting Pakistani pilgrims with symbolic gifts.
These gestures included holy water from the Ganges, a copy of the Bhagwat Gita, and rosaries made of natural Rudraksha beads.
The organizers aimed to convey a message of love and harmony to their visitors from across the border, emphasizing the importance of religious tolerance and communal unity.
Shadab Shams further shared that Pakistani pilgrims had pledged to hand these gifts to temples or individuals in Pakistan, demonstrating their commitment to spreading love and brotherhood.
The Pakistani pilgrims assured Shadab that they would return these souvenirs and present them to their Hindu brothers, amplifying the message of love and unity.
Shadab Shams emphasized the importance of connecting people in Pakistan with their temples and promoting Sanatan culture through this initiative. He mentioned they had gifted copies of the Bhagwat Gita and Ganga water to 107 Pakistani pilgrims.
Every year, devotees from countries like Bangladesh, Pakistan, and South Africa visit the Dargah of Sabir Makhdoom Shah to participate in the Sufi saint’s annual yours (religious gathering). Pilgrims have been arriving at the Dargah for five consecutive days.
Shadab Shams called for mutual respect between Indians and Pakistanis for each other’s religious beliefs and traditions.
Kaliyar, Haridwar, houses the 755-year-old Dargah of Sabir Makhdoom Shah, the fifth Dham in Uttarakhand, dedicated to Sufi saint Syed Ali Ahmed. He was born in Heart, Afghanistan, on 19 Rabi al-Awwal 592 Hijri.
