Hyderabad: Caretaker Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao who began his election campaign in earnest three days ago, appeared to be in a jovial mood in the Praja Ashirwada Sabha in Nirmal on Thursday.

In his address, Mr Rao ridiculed the ignorance of most political leaders about the Imam-e-Zamin (guarantor for return), the red cloth that he ties on his right arm. He spoke about its prominence and narrated the story behind it.

 

Imam-e-Zamin is wrapped on the right hand by Muslims while undertaking any journey and also during religious functions and marriages.

He said, “One of the holy Imams was as on his journey in a jungle and came across a hunter who was about to kill a deer. The deer was trying to get away and when she saw the Imam she said something to him. The Imam asked the hunter to free the deer so that she could go and feed her little baby deer who was very hungry. The Imam told the hunter that once the deer had fed her babies she would come back. Though the hunter was reluctant he allowed it to because the Imam had told him to, but he did not think the deer would come back.”

 

The Chief Minister said the Imam wrapped a cloth on the leg of the deer and allowed her to feed the babies. He waited with the hunter until the deer returned with her young ones. “The hunter was amazed on witnessing this miraculous event and set the deer free as a mark of respect for the Imam,” Mr Rao said.
