INDIA FIRST | Tricolour unfurled at a Dargah for the first time in history after Independence

Hundreds of Muslims hoisted the Tricolour whilst chanting ‘Bharat Mata Ki Jai’ at Mumbai’s Mahim dargah.
In a testament to the unity of the country’s religious fabric, the unfurling of the Tricolour was followed by the playing of the National Anthem by the Mumbai Police Band, as the Muslim community joined the police officers.

The Peer Makhdum Shah Baba dargah in Mahim, which is celebrating its 603 Urs (death anniversary of a saint) this year and which is visited by Indians of all denominations, was a scene of patriotic-religious bonhomie as ordinary and prominent people from all walks of life in Mumbai gathered at the dargah to pay their respects to the Tricolour and the Peer.

Suhail Khandwani, the president of the dargah’s trust, who unfurled the Tricolour along with Shiv Sena MP Rahul Shewale among others, had earlier in the day said, “I am doing it out of love for my country, but I will not call anybody who refuses to do so as anti-national or unpatriotic.”
