SEHWAN SHARIF, PAKISTAN - SEPTEMBER, 2006:  Whirling dervishes (Malangs) during the annual celebration of the Urs of Lal shahbaz Qalandar, a 13th century Sufi Master worshiped alike by Hindus and Muslims. Born as Seyed Shah Hussain (Usman) Marandi, he later on titled as Lal (red) Shahbaz ( Falcon) Qalandar (as he belonged to Qalandria order of sufism)..By whiriling, the dervishes perfom Dhmal, an ecstatic dance through which they aim to purify their souls and reach perfectness. Different sect of religion brings different ways of clothing. These followers wear red clothes as Lal Shahbaz Qalandar was wearing red all his life.
