HINDUS HOMAGE TO PROPHET MUHAMMED (PBUH)
EVEN THIS KIND OF STUFF EXISTS IN ARCHIVES
Bridging two nations by Munshi Datasta Pershad
There was a Mushaira in the Wazeer Khan Mosque in Lahore around 1875 and all the poets narrated their love of the Prophet. Interesting there were few Hindus in it, who also narrated Qasidas in love and reverence of our Prophet. One of course was the famous TARA HALWAI of Delhi Darwaza Chowk. We will post those one day in our blog.
In meantime enjoy a Qasida by a Hindu Munshi, published in a local newspaper around 1927. Nothing is known by us about this MUNSHI DATASTA PERSHAD, but he calls himself holding a B A degree. Maybe we can research on him. In the mean time enjoy praise of the Prophet from, no one else than a Hindu himself. Respect for others way of life can really lead to meaningful dialogue. But this kind of feature is very rare indeed.
