Dharavi residents pray for  redevelopment at Mahim Dargah

Residents of Dharavi visited Makhdoom Shah Baba Dargah and paid their respects at the holy shrine, praying for the speedy redevelopment of Dharavi.

Hundreds of residents paid their respects on the concluding night of the famous Mahim mela.

Nearly 150 Dharavikars marched on foot armed with thals on their heads and walked towards Mahim Dargah with just one wish in their heart, and that is a redeveloped and prosperous Dharavi. 

They reached Mahim Dargah by late evening and offered their prayers.

Quaiser Bano, a tailor by profession says that her family has been residing in Dharavi for more than five decades. They have been surviving with bare minimum facilities and living in congested houses for ages. 

“I was happy to know that our Dharavi is being developed. This should have been done long back. We also deserve a better home and good living conditions. I pray to Makhdoom baba that this happens very soon and no hurdles should come in between, ” she said.

Another resident identified as Khan Mohammed Qadar said, “We welcome the redevelopement of Dharavi. Its about time now. We pray that it happens soon. Every one has a right for good housing facilities and better living conditions.”

Another resident Zubeda Appa who runs an NGO for women in Dharavi shared, “We only pray for a redeveloped Dharavi where our children have a brighter and better future. All should support this redevelopment and help in changing it for the good.”

Mehrunissa Khan, a jewellery worker from Dharavi said, “We have been longing to see a vibrant and redeveloped Dharavi. The Government has taken the right step, this was pending for decades. We hope everyone comes together and helps this redevelopment see the light of the day.
