Hyderabad: The yellow, pink and orange colour flags seen during the celebrations of Milad-un-Nabi don’t represent any political party but different  jamats and dargahs. The yellow flag is of Quadri Chaman Dargah in Old City that had the maximum participants in the rally. The young boys also wear yellow caps and the girls tie a yellow scarf. The pink and orange are of the Ajmer dargah.

Mr Mir Ali, one of the participants, said, “There are various schools of thoughts. Followers of these identify themselves by a chosen colour. Hence when the birthdays of saints are celebrated these colours are used to identify their sect.”

 

Earlier only one colour, green, was used which continues to be the favoured colour for the maximum number of attendees but with different jamats and madarassas having different schools of thoughts there has been a riot of colours. With more than 1,50,000 people participating in the rally, a large number of followers carrying yellow flags were seen.
