When you think about Sufism and shrines you think of peace and tranquility. However, 16 people learned that getting in the way of someone’s tranquility can be dangerous.

When the doors of Sufi saint Hazrat Baba Fariduddin Masood Ganj Shakar’s shrine in Pakpattan opened for his 776th urs, 16 people were injured in the rush.

People tried to push their way into the shrine, running roughshod over a number of devotees, reported SAMAA TV correspondent Muhammad Amjad.

The security gate installed at the entrance also broke with the force of their pushes.

The injured people were taken to a local hospital.
