Ajmer: Three members of a family belonging to Allahabad,who were observing fast for the past 38 days on the premises of Ajmer dargah,died of starvation on Monday.Ten others,including two children aged two and three,have been admitted to JLN Hospital and their condition was stated to be critical.
The surviving members claimed that they were observing a 40-day fast to overcome the influence of black magic and remained unrepentant even after the incident.Though it was claimed that the fasting was similar to the Sufi practice of Chilla Kashi,dargah officials claimed that such harsh practices were against the teachings of Khwaja Moinuddhin Chishti.
According to sources,Mohammad Salam (14),Nausar (17) and Kaiser (28) were declared brought dead by doctors of the JLN Hospital in Ajmer.Nine others,identified as Ali Hussain (3),Farhan (2),Mohammad Mustafa,Munarvi Devi,Sher Ali,Gul Sher,Mohammad Kalam,Rizwan Sheikh and Nargis are undergoing treatment.
The well-educated middle class family was following the superstitious practice of keeping fast for 40 days,claiming that it was as per the orders of the Khwaja, said an official.The head of the family,Mohammad Mustafa (59),who himself was performing the fast,is an ex-merchant navy officer.Mustafa told TOI that his brother had performed some black magic on his family nearly four years ago.Later,I had a dream that I should visit Ajmer dargah with family to overcome the evil spirits, Mustafa said at JLN Hospital.He said that from the day when the witchcraft was performed,everything was going wrong in his family.
However,even after three deaths in the family,the other ailing members were unrepentant as they refused to accept treatment and pulled out the needles from their wrists.When khadims and other people noticed the condition of the fasting family members,they asked them to eat something but all were adamant on their vows.I requested and sat for an hour near them on Sunday and asked them to eat something but they refused, said Muzaffar Bharati,a social worker.Even the khadims were aware of their condition and continuously warned them.Garib Nawaz does not teach these things and I warned him that this was against the teachings.I even persuaded them to drink water, said Natik Chishti,a khadim.
The incident has left the residents,especially Muslim religious leaders,shocked as they were united in their opinion that such a harsh practice was against the teachings of Garib Nawaz.
