what a real Faqeer was, keep your sword down. Then, Hazrat Hyder Ali Khan Bahadhur
(RA) laid down the sword near his legs, suddenly Hazrath Syed Mohammed Aqheel

pardon from the great Auliya of Channapatna. Hazrat Hyder Ali Khan Bahadhur (RA)

do not require any worldly things because their objective is to serve the humanity.
