In the mystical Islamic belief of the Sheedi tribe descending from Africa, the most desired wish could be fulfilled, if the holy crocodile Mor Sahib eats sacrificial offerings. On its centenary, pilgrims assemble in the shrine of Saint Mangho in South Pakistan, to experience collective trance, ecstasy and spiritual healing.
