Tricolour Unfurled Inside Mumbai’s Mahim Dargah Amid Chants Of ‘Bharat Mata Ki Jai’

Published on 18 March, 2016 at 1:52 pm By

On March 17 Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who attended the World Sufi Forum, tweeted this:

And before sunset on the same day, Mumbai’s Mahim Dargah set an example for the religious brigades and the leaders on both sides of the political spectrum, who try to divide the country on communal lines, by hoisting a tricolour inside the dargah.

It is the first time since the country’s independence that a tricolour has been hoisted inside a dargah.

 

And that was not all.

The members of the Pir Makhdum Shah Baba Trust of the dargah chanted ‘Bharat Mata Ki Jai’, while a police band played the National Anthem.

The members of the trust, however, said that they have no problems with anyone not singing the anthem or chanting ‘Bharat Mata Ki Jai’.

Suhail Khandwani, the president of the dargah’s trust, said that no one should be forced to chant ‘Bharat Mata Ki Jai’.



 

Just a few days ago, AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi had raised heckles of a certain section of the society by openly declaring that he won’t chant ‘Bharat Mata Ki Jai’ even if a knife is put to his throat.

Maharashtra CM Devendra Fadnavis was to unfurl the tricolour, but he got delayed because of the ongoing session in the state assembly. Undeterred, Suhail Khandwani, the president of the dargah’s trust, unfurled the Indian national flag.

The dargah is marking its 603 Urs (death anniversary of a saint) of Makhdoom Ali Mahimi (1372-1431 AD).

 

Here’s the video of the tricolour hoisting at the dargah:
