Like in many parts of the country, the 807th Urs of Hazrat Khawaja Moin-ud-Din Chisti (RA) of Ajmer Sharif, popularly known as Khawaja Gareeb Nawaz, was celebrated at Kishtwar with great enthusiasm and religious fervour.
A large number of people participated in special prayers organised by Shah family of Bunastan, Kishtwar, under the guidance of president Anjuman Tablig-ul-Islam Jammu province, Haji Fareed Ahmed Shah.
On the occasion, religious scholars threw light on the life of Khawaja Moin-ud-Din Chisti (RA), who during his lifetime, preached and enlightened the people about peace, prosperity and brotherhood.
Speaking on the occasion, president Anjuman Tablig-ul-Islam Jammu, said, “My family are massive flowers of Khawaja Gareeb Nawaz and visit Ajmer Sharief every year to participate in the annual Urs.”

He further said that history is the testimony to the preaching of Khawaja Gareeb Nawaz. "He (Khawaja) had migrated from Saudi Arabia to India with an aim to teach and impart religious education to the poor and downtrodden.
