Dhammal Dance in Pakistan, Will Continue to Survive?

Dancers wriggle indifferently, his head bowed forward, moving from left to right in drums, his long black hair looping back and forth. Another woman, perhaps a relative or friend, tried to throw a scarf over her head, but surrendered after the scarf continued to fall.

The movement could cause a stir in other parts of Pakistan, a conservative country where women are expected to obey and not attract attention, but not in this area. But this is the holy place of Lal Shahbaz Qalandar, a famous 13th century Sufi scholar.

Over the past 700 years, as the legend has it, every night around at sunset, the player strikes a large drum, called naubat, women, young and old, dancing to the rhythm.

Dhammal, the name of the dance, is a form of worship similar to that of a dervish in Turkey. The shrine, located in the town of Sehwan Sharif, in the province of Sindh, Pakistan, attracts the attention of people from all religions.

Hindus, a large minority in this province, honor Qalandar as well as Muslims from both Shiite and Sunni sects. The folklore says "Daata," a nickname for a saint, can heal infertility in women, who come in droves to pray for children.

"This is the door of a saint, you find love here," says Ghulam Sarwar Langha , the manager of the shrine.

"Everyone is welcome, no one is expelled," he added.

Last February, as soon as dhama began, the walls of the shrine vibrated after a violent explosion.

A suicide bomber sparked an explosive in his jacket. At least 80 people, including many women and children, were killed.

According to anthropologist Zaigham Khan, the attack, which occurred in one of Sindh's many shrines in recent years, is one of the indicators that an inclusive Sindh culture and tolerant has changed. [my/jm]
