LAHORE: Mela Chiraghan (the festival of lightts), the two-day annual Urs (death anniversary of a Sufi saint deemed as a union with the Almighty) celebrations of Hazrat Shah Hussain, popularly known as Madhu Lal Hussain, started at his shrine in Baghbanpura on Saturday.

 

Director General Religious Affairs Hassan Rizvi inaugurated Urs celebrations by laying a traditional 'Chadar' (sacred sheet of green) cloth on the grave of the sufi saint.

 

Administrator Shamsul Haq, former MNA Roheel Asghar and a large number of devotees were also present on the occasion.

 

Prayers were offered for the development, progress and stability of the country.

 

The Auqaf department has allocated over Rs 458,000 for 'langar' (free

meal) for devotees during the Urs.

 

A Mehfil-e-Samaa and Mehfil-e-Naat will be held in which noted Qawwals and Naat Khawans will perform. Religious and spiritual meetings will also be held and Ulema will throw light on the teachings of Hazrat Madhu Lal Hussain.

 

The city district government has made tight security arrangements. (APP)
