“The gap of two was basically… it was a natural realisation of the people you need support of the people for the festival, ” Ali told IANS here.

“Sufi saints knew the true value of an egalitarian, inclusive world lead by a seamless love for the Lord. It’s a message most relevant in today’s world full of angst and strife. I am glad we can once again remember these Sufi saints and their enlightened view of life,” he added.

The forthcoming festival is dedicated to Hazrat Baba Fariduddin Ganjshakar, patron saint of the Punjab and the Pir of Hazrat Nizamuddin Auliya.
