The One Who Is Coming
Baba (Saint) said, ‘Can’t you see, this country is made for some purpose, it’s not without a reason. Now this Shaking Boat has to carry to destination’.
I (Mumtaz Mufti) asked wittily, Baba, ‘For whom this country is made?’
He said, “They say, throne will be laid here then He will come and sit here”
“Who is that person?” I asked.
Baba replied, “The One who is coming, The One whom all are waiting”
I am getting out of my patience, I said, Baba ‘Can I say something if you don’t mind’
He said, ‘Yes ask, I will not mind‘
I said, “Neither I agree to these things nor I agree to Saints”
Baba Replied, “Don’t agree, It’s your consent, Agree or Disagree, we don’t impose anything, its everyone’s luck, some agree, some don’t agree” then he stopped and spoke after sometime
“It’s just a matter of time, when the time will come, you will automatically agree with this”.
I reluctantly said “No Baba”
Baba Said, “You don’t know, they are very strict and powerful, when they come to their will, they make others to agree”
‘No Baba’, I stopped him
