Hey world! If you think Hindus and Muslims are always at loggerheads regarding religion and God, you are mistaken. There was a saint Shirdi Sai baba(a nineteenth-twentieth century guru), whom both Hindus and some Indian Muslims pray. In the present age of religious disharmony, abhorrence and violence, I find solace in praying Shirdi Sai Baba. Without going into details about his biography which you’ll find in plenty on the internet, I just want to touch upon his message to the world. Hindu devotees consider him an incarnation of God and many of us pray him like any other God. He would live in a mosque and follow Hindu rituals. He would always say “ Sabka Malik Ek” meaning “God is one” and “Allah Malik” which Hindus and some Indian Muslims revere as golden words.
Our religiously enlightened have shown us the path of universal brotherhood, love and tolerance. Where did this narrow-mindedness come from? When will we fools understand?
