Sufi festival at Ajmer – Feb 24th-March 4th 2009

A Sufi festival is being organized for the first time at the dargah of Khwaja Moinuddin Chishti in Ajmer from February 24 to March 4, 2009. The festival will have more that 400 participants showcasing their painting and calligraphy skills based on Islam. The theme would highlight moderate Islam that does not discriminate one person from another.

The festival’s venue is the mehfil khana at the dargah of Khwaja Moinunddin Chishti.

This is the first time in the country when a festival on Sufi art has been organized. "Since Khwaja Moinuddin Chishti was one of the greatest Sufi followers in the country, we are trying to give the message of love to all the people from here," says Dr Janmadulla Hussein Chishti, convenor of the festival.
