All Hindu Gujarat village renovates a Sufi shrine

Aloda is a small village in Mehsana district in Gujarat. This village is home to the 700 year old shrine dedicated to Sufi saint Saiyed Badru Rehmat-ulla Alai, popularly known as Fakir Bava.

This all-Hindu village has spent Rs 17 lakhs to rebuild the shrine which was damaged in the recent earthquake. The shrine was reopened on Labh Pancham a Gujarati festival day, with the attendance of muslims from the nearby villages.

Saiyed Badru Rehmat-ulla Alai had come from Mecca and settled in this village and he was well-known as a Sufi saint in the region.
