He called for human brotherhood, god consciousness and penance. His saying spoke about the connection between man and god, conservation of environment and piety. He exhorted people towards good conduct, respecting dignity of life and self realization. His universal message despised extravagance and excesses which he said were the root causes of moral degradation of mankind. On this day I pay my humblest tributes to the great patron saint of ours. There is a great need making his teaching public, the young generation has a lot to emulate from his teaching an ascetic way of life.”
Meanwhile party’s senior leader former Minister Abdul Rahim Rathar has urged the divisional administration to ensure all facilities to the people on the eve of Urs at the Shrine.
