Elderly Sikh Wakes Up Muslim Neighbours For Sehri, Becomes Mascot of Harmony!

A viral video clip of a Sikh man who diligently fulfils his role for his Muslim neighbours is moving people across the state.

Everyone around him is in a deep sleep. But the turbaned elderly man wakes before dawn. Assuming the role of a mesaharati or seharkhwaan, (meaning ‘public waker’) he ties a drum around his torso.

He beats it with a renewed passion on the streets of his neighbourhood in the Pulwama district of Srinagar. Following the rhythm, he yells out to his Muslim brethren:

“Allah Rasool de pyaaro, jannat de talabgaro, utho roza rakho,” which translates to “The beloved of Allah and his messenger, the seekers of paradise, wake up to start your fast.”

A viral video clip of a Sikh man who diligently fulfils his role for his Muslim neighbours is moving people across the state. He invites them for Sehri, or the pre-dawn meal that Muslims eat before the start of their dawn-to-dusk Ramzan fast or Roza.

Lauded for being an embodiment of religious tolerance and peaceful coexistence, the man’s gesture is being widely shared on social media.

And while we would never know who the man in the 21-second clip is, he certainly proves that it doesn’t take much to live in peace and harmony, even if the ones around you don’t worship the same God as you do.
