The man takes on the role of "mesaharati", or a public waker for the Sehri meal in the Pulwama district of Jammu and Kashmir. "Allah Rasool de pyaaro, jannat de talabgaro, utho roza rakho (The beloved of Allah and his messenger, the seekers of paradise, wake up to start your fast)," he shouts before starting to beat his drum.
The video has earned the Sikh man praise, with people saying that he embodied the communal harmony that has existed in Kashmir for centuries.
While the task of being the "mesaharati", or a drum beater who goes around their locality to wake up its residents for Sehri, is usually taken up by one of the Muslims from the locality, but there are incidents of members of different communities doing it as well.
