Ghazi Fakir, who was known to run parallel power in Jaisalmer, Rajasthan, died, after which a huge crowd was seen in his funeral. The Government of Rajasthan has acknowledged that the state hospitals are struggling with lack of oxygen, yet the Corona guidelines are not being followed. Ghazi Fakir was also a maulvi, so his followers are in the thousands who gathered the crowd.
Ghazi Faqir’s son Saleh Mohammed is the Minister of Minority Affairs in the state, so far from condemning the crowd in the funeral or taking action against it, Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot mourned the demise. In the viral video, it can be seen that a large crowd of Muslims is gathered in front of the house of Congress leader Ghazi Fakir and preparations are being made for his last action.

All this is happening when there is not even a week when Ghazi Fakir’s son Saleh Mohammed came to Corona positive. By tweeting on Friday (April 23, 2021), the MLA of Pokhran had informed that on the advice of doctors, he has isolated himself at the Jaipur residence. He also appealed to the people in contact with him to conduct an inquiry. Saleh Mohammed has ministries such as Minority Departments, Waqf Affairs and Minority Litigation Disposal.
On seeing the symptoms of corona, I and my PSO got checked, which has been reported positive. On the advice of doctors, we have isolated ourselves at Jaipur residence.
We were isolated for the last 2 to 3 days, yet the people who have come in contact with us are requested that all of you also get your inquiry done.

Ghazi Fakir, known as the ‘Sultan of Sirhad’, was a religious leader of Sindhi Muslims, in such a way his coronation violated the rules of Corona and the policemen remained silent in front of the crowd. Ghazi Fakir, 85, is survived by his wife, 6 sons and 3 daughters. Several Congress leaders including Jaisalmer MLA Ruparam Dhanade, Jaisalmer Municipal Council Chairman Harivallabh Kalla, former district chief Anjana Meghwal, former district congress president Govind Bhargava, former chief Moolaram Chaudhary and youth leader Vikas Vyas reached and paid tribute to him.
Pakistan across the border, following the followers of Ghazi Fakir, as the Khalifa of Pir Pagaro, the largest faith site of Sindhi Muslims in Pakistan. I am also. Ghazi Fakir, who was a sarpanch and then Zilla Parishad, pushed many of his family into politics. Bhai Fateh Mohammed Pradhan and District Head were the Congress head of the congress. A son Amardeen Fakir has been the head of the Jaisalmer committee and is the state vice-president of the Youth Congress.
Ghazi, who has been accused in many cases including treason, has not been able to get hold of Indian agencies for many years because there is no evidence against him. His name has been mentioned in the police history sheet since 1965, but due to his dominance in the Congress, no one could even expose his hair. When police officer Pankaj Chaudhary started investigating, he was dismissed. That is why an SP was transferred in the 90s.
