Video interview conducted in Jalandhar in December 2016


The shrine of the Sufi saint, Hazrat Imam Nasiruddin Abu Yusuf Chishti, dates back to the 15th century. He is believed to have come to Jalandhar in the 11th century from Iran. His fellow and contemporary pir, Baba Farid Ganj Shakar of PakPattan (Ajodhan, in present-day Pakistan) is said to have visited this place in the 13th century.


In this video, Maulana Shamshad Hasan narrates legends of the saint's spiritual influence, and describes how the annual urs mela, an important event in the old city of Jalandhar, draws pilgrims of various faiths to seek the pir's blessings.
