    To every member of xik community, my brother, cousins, friends living around the world and those living back home, the second seasonal festival of the xik community. it is indeed the official opening ceremony of Spring season when our people practically get engaged with cultivation for the next season

    It is part of our unique culture that we start every activity with the name of the Creater through his messenger Hazrat Mohammad (Sual Allau Alaihi Wa Aalihi Wassalam), the Imaman and Peeran. We used to seek Allah’s blessings and thankgiving for every. This way people were very closed to their religion but the pursuit of material well-being has driven us away.

    Common people attribute these disasters to this fact that perhaps we have started to leave our unique cultural rituals and practices.
