2. Once my grandfather told me a legend about the great Sufi poet Kabir Das's last rites. There is some dispute among the Hindus and Muslims whether Kabir was born in a Muslim weaver family or as a Hindu Brahmin. Likewise, at the time of his death, Hindus and Muslims fought among themselves for the right to perform his last rites. It is said that when they lifted his shroud, they found nothing but flowers, which they distributed among themselves. Thus, even after his death, Kabir delivered his message to humanity that “God is one”. Accordingly, his Mazar and Samadhi were constructed side by side.
