Ghaffar Manzil house becomes talk of media; know the reason

What is so special about this Ghaffar Manzil house to grab the media’s attention in India? For days it has been talked about on the social media with residents sharing photos of the house.

The ‘Sabka Ghar’ is the pride of Okhla that has made headlines across the country. Though there are many houses in the Okhla, what makes this house stand out is that it has been dedicated to those hounded in the name of race, religion, ethnicity and caste.

The idea is of Okhla-headquartered Khudai Khidmatgar that is headed by Faisal Khan. The organisation convener told TOI that the house is to help the people to “detoxify themselves”.

Khan said: “Activists and human rights workers often limit themselves to seminars, symposiums and talks. There is a need for a more practical attempt to remove the ills from society. Already, eight people from six States have applied here,” said Khan.

The house was inaugurated a few days ago by well-known jurist Rajinder Sachar.

“If we do not remove prejudices against each other, no development is possible in the country,” said Sachar while inaugurating the house, terming it a unique idea “where people can come together”.

Khudai Khidmatgar was a movement in pre-Independent India led by Khan Abdul Ghaffar Khan, also called Bacha Khan or the Frontier Gandhi.
