Flowers are raining outside the Eidgah ,Sikh community welcomes the Muslims

The flowers are raining outside the Eidgah. The beauty of this picture lies in the fact that Sikh boys are welcoming the Muslims coming out of Eidgah after offering the Namaz, with flowers.
The Sikh community welcomes the Muslims after Namaz in Bhopal, as a goodwill gesture. For decades the office-bearers of local Sikh organisations have been greeting Muslims ‘Eid Mubarak’ in this manner.Naturally, such a gesture overwhelms the other community. Reaching out to the other community is the need of the hour. We must celebrate the festivals of the other community and spread the message of harmony.

Such photographs are rare as people are getting narrow-minded and don’t prefer interacting with other communities and groups. Working relationships are okay but family ties are not as strong as they used to be in the past.
Here there is no political platform but the ordinary Sikhs meeting ordinary Muslims. And this is the spirit of Hindustaniat. Kudos to the Sikh organisations who take this extra step towards reaching to the other community.

This photo has a lesson for everybody among us to learn. Will we?

    Meri Nazm:

    “is bemiSaal rasm-e moHabbat pe maiN niSaar”

    Sardar bhaiyoN ki Inaayat pe maiN niSaar
    Is bemiSaal rasm-e moHabbat pe maiN niSaar

    Masjid se aa rahe haiN jo bAAd-e Namaz-e Eid
    ToHfa yeh pa rahe haiN woh bAAd-e namaz-e Eid

    Sir pe namaaziyoN ke yeh pholoN ki baarisheN
    Bhaii ki ek bhaaii pe aisee nawazisheN

    Har phool kah raha hai moHabbat ki daastaN
    paRh lo namaz.e ishaq miayaN ho gaii azaaN

    aisa prem aisa KhulooS.o.wafa ka rung
    Sardar chal rahe haiN MusalmaN ke sung sung

    Yeh nafratoN ka daur, moHabbat ka yeh safar
    “Govind ji” ki shiksha ka zahnoN pe yeh aSar

    “Nank Guru” ne pyaar sikha tha ek din
    Yeh raasta unhoN ne bataaya tha ek din

    Yeh nafratoN ka yug yeh KhulooS.o wafa ke phool
    Sardar tere phooloN ko karte haiN hum qubool

    Ab tere saath sath jiyeNge mareNge hum
    Teri wafa peh shauk na zara bhi kareNge hum

    Sardar humko tere harik phool ki qasam
    Ab tujhko apna bhaaii samajhte raheNge hum

    Peete raheNge saath meN khaate rahenge hum
    Tujhse wafa ki rasmeN nibhate raheNge hum

    Sardar tere amr.e inaayat ka shukriya
    Tere Khuloos teri moHabbat ka shukriya
