Union Minister for Minority Affairs Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi today said that while on one hand Prime Minister Narendra Modi believes in the legacy of Sufi Saints to protect human values and justice, and on the other hand, he is a “nationalistic warrior” against terrorism.
He said that the Prime Minister is working with commitment to national security by adopting “zero tolerance” policy against terrorism. India’s spiritual and Sufi culture is the guarantee of ensuring humanity and peace by defeating and demolishing terrorism and all other forms of violence.
Naqvi offered ‘Chadar’ on behalf of the Prime Minister at dargah of Sufi Saint Hazrat Khwaja Moinuddin Chishti on 807th Urs at Ajmer Sharif. He also read out the message of the Prime Minister in which he conveyed greetings and best wishes to the followers of Khwaja Moinuddin Chishti in India and abroad on the occasion of annual Urs.
The Prime Minister in his message said: “Harmonious co-existence of different religions, communities, beliefs and faith in India is the beauty of our country. Various Saints, Pir and Fakirs in our country have given message of peace, unity and harmony time to time. They have played a key role in spreading message of discipline, decency and self- restraint. Khwaja Moinuddin Chishti is the symbol of great spiritual traditions of India. Khwaja Moinduddin Chishti’s service to the humanity will inspire generations to come. On the annual Urs of this great Sufi Saint, I express my tributes to him through sending “Chadar” at Dargah Ajmer Sharif.”
People from all sections of the society welcomed wholeheartedly the “Chadar” offered by the Prime Minister. On the occasion, Naqvi also laid foundation stone of Khwaja Gharib Nawaz University at Kayad Vishramsthali, to be established by Ajmer Dargah Committee. He also inaugurated Khwaja Gharib Nawaz Dispensary (OPD) at Dargah Apartment, Civil Line, Ajmer.
