Bangalore: Water dripping out of a flag post near a Dargah on Mysore Road was reason for much excitement on Wednesday evening as several people thronged the place to drink the `holy water’. Traffic was thrown out of gear for more than two hours and policemen were deployed to control the crowd.

The `miracle’ was noticed around 2.30 pm after prayers at the Dargah Sadiq Ali Shaw Hussaini, next to the satellite bus stand on Mysore Road. A flower seller noticed water dripping out of the flag post — Gousia Nishan — and informed others. Around 4.30 pm, the news had spread and many people made a beeline to the spot and gathered in front of the post to witness the event. They carried bottles with them to take the water home.

The growing crowd spilled on to Mysore Road, affecting traffic till 7 pm. Even around 8 pm, there was a crowd of around 500 persons at the spot.

Dargah president Syed Najumuddin said the flag post is just three metres from the tombstone of sufi saint Hazrath Sadiq Alishan Hussain. “The saint had come to the city 200 years ago from Arabia and settled down here,” he added.

Dargah board member Aleem said they had signs of a miracle happening since Tuesday night. “We were getting the scent of sandalwood near the dargah since last night. Even today, there was a dense fragrance, but we could not figure where it was coming from.” He said that as soon as they found out about the water, they informed their friends and family and soon the news spread across the city.

On July 18, 2008, hundreds of people thronged the house of Babu and his wife Lakshmi in Gavipuram Guttahalli after rumours spread about a Sai Baba idol opening its eye. Police had a tough time then controlling the huge crowd in front the house gathered for a darshan. Later, it was learned Babu’s house was built on a revenue site. BBMP filed a case and got a court order to evict him.

In the past, there have been other such `miracles’ like a Ganesha idol drinking milk and a bleeding Jesus idol.

  1. I dont think this article is worth publishing on this blog because the following reference is very insulting

    “Propagation of the Deen
    Not only did he show the path of the Righteousness to the people deeply immersed in the darkness of faithlessness in the Sub-Continent but also traveled to far off places”

    This refers to the Hindus and this all about converting them to Islam which many who did were due to the force conversion by the sword..I dont think this blog should be promoting the above article just because it claims a ‘miracle’ which what Satya Sai Baba can do and who doesn’t use it as a tool to convert people to Hinduism.

  2. I’m surprised my original comments were deleted.This is being very untruthful behaviour especially for a blog that is promoting Satya Sai Baba..

  3. Hello Ajay. The posts here are moderated. They are not instantly accepted and that is why there is a lapse between a submitted comment and an accepted comment.

    It is important to note that Hazrat Syed Waris Ali Shah did not propagate any violence towards anyone. Nor did the article say one word about Hazrat converting Hindus. That is your blind assumption. Hazrat is a Sufi Saint and I am quite shocked and disappointed that a Sai Devotee would actually attempt to make Anti-Muslim / Pro-Hindu arguments using Sai Baba’s name.

    There are numerous references to Hindu Saints, Christian Saints, Sufi Saints, Buddhists, etc., converting others to their beliefs. Why aren’t you concerned about that?

    Sathya Sai Baba promotes peace, love and unity among all religions and even has the symbol of Islam on the logo of the International Sai Organization. Is the symbol of Islam on the Sai Organization’s logo insulting to you as well?

    Please do not speak disparaging about Islam here. Baba says we should develop brotherhood with all religions. Do not forget that Shirdi Sai Baba lived as a Muslim Faqir in a mosque.
