Eid Miladun Nabi

On the birthday of Prophet Mohammad (SAW). Muslim Committee of Amroha organizes "Jaloos", a procession. Thousands of Amrohvis participate in Jaloos after Zuhar Namaz(Noon Prayer). It begins from Jama Masjid, Amroha. The procession moves along Bazar Naubat Khana , Tehseel, Bada Bazar, Guzri, Bazar Shafat Pota, Chahgauri, Maja Pota and Chilla to finally reach Chauraha Kot. People carry green decorated flags embroidered with the name "Muhammad" and "Allah".

 Many cars fitted with speakers are also part of this procession. They all collectively make such a noise that its really hard to recognize what people are speaking. Everybody is simply shouting slogans and singing in praise of Prophet Mohammad(SAW). It seems whole city is out on streets.

Children play a big role in this procession. They are the ones who carry the flags and posters. Children have their share of fun. Many people distribute sweets, sherbat and coffee when the Jaloos reaches their locality. Its a way of welcoming the procession. Women in black Burqa can be seen on all roof tops as the procession passes streets of Amroha.

One of the popular slogan shouted in Jaloos is:
"Islam ki taleem sab insan". "Bhai-Bhai".
 I wonder if people really understand this. Or we simply shout it and forget it as soon as the festivity is over.
