A Noble Step was taken by Saba Sultan - Mutawalli Auqaf e Shahi during the corona Pandemic.
In the tumultuous times of today when Corona is taking an excruciatingly heavy toll and the number of deceased keeps rising on a daily basis, the cemeteries all over, with their limited boundaries are finding it increasingly difficult to cope with these swelling numbers. Apart from this, the bodies are being sent to the cemeteries directly from the hospital. To help people send off their loved ones with appropriate religious rites, Auqaf-e-Shahi, has completed a Ghusl-e-Mayyat (Bathing the dead body) facility in Bada Bagh cemetery.
It is worthwhile to note that with the efforts of Mutawalli Saba Sultan, a shed had been constructed earlier at Bada Bagh at the Sindhi Colony intersection some time ago with the help of people to offer Namaz-e-Janaza and free of cost arrangements of shrouds of poor and unclaimed bodies were made here. A facility of bathing the dead bodies was planned but could not be put into action.
Amid the raging Corona disaster, when the corpses were sent directly from the hospitals to the graveyard, people demanded to construct a facility for bathing the dead in the Bada Bagh to solve this problem. When this demand reached the Mutawalli of Auqaf-e-Shahi, Saba Sultan, she instantly gave her approval for the same and instructed the Auqaf-e -Shahi Office in Bhopal to get the work completed expeditiously. As a result, the new facility for Ghusl e Janaza at Bada Bagh has been completed in a record tome and is operational.
