ISLAMABAD, September 22: The Patron in-Chief of Supreme Shia Ulama Board and Head of Tehreek e Nifaz e Fiqah Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi said thatin the plan of Karbala, Imam Hussain (AS) totally changed the meaning to victory and defeat. Success is the protection of objectives, even if one loses everything he has, and loosing objectives is defeat, even if one remains successful in protecting everything else. The only way to counter the American and Indian aggression is to follow the path of Hussainiyat, leaders should take practical steps to protect the dignity and honor of Pakistani nation. Government should rather take practical steps then issuing simple statements against the Anti-Pakistan activities in Geneva carried out by bannedIndiafunded organizations.Pakistan Army have always been sacrificing the lives of their soldiers for the protection of our beloved homeland, rulers and politicians should also fulfill their responsibilities and should also think transcendence to the protection of their rule and interest. He expressed these thought while delivering his speech on the inauguration of the Holy month of Muharram ul Haram.
He said that our leaders and politicians should have the courage of Hazrat Ali (AS) and passion of sacrifice like Imam Hussain (AS) for the protection of our beloved homeland Pakistan. Aqa e Moosavi asserted that with the power of faith, even the biggest tyrant and dictators could be defeated. He narrated that once, in a battle field an enemy of Islam asked Hazrat Ali that if you are truly a generous, give your sword to me. Imam Ali (AS) immediately threw his sword towards him. He picked up that sword and asked, “how would you fight with me now”, so Ali replied, “now I will use my faith as a shield and would fight with you”.
Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shad Moosavi said that history is evident that from the Battle of Badr till the Armageddon of Karbala, only the power of faith that the small band of Muslims kept annihilating the gigantic mutualistic and huge power of falsehood. Aqa e Moosavi iterated that we are the followers of the teachings of Karbala. For the protection of human rights and for the elevation of the teachings of Islam Imam Hussain (AS) presented an indispensable and unforgiveable sacrifice with is a perfect example to follow till the day of Judgement. He said that the month of Muharram teachings us how can we secure Islam and ourselves against the contemporary Yazidiyat.
He stressed that the month of Muharram is the commemoration of the unforgivable events of Karbala, whose every incident gives absolute lessons to humanity to follow. Respecting this month because of the incident of Karbala is accepting and elevating the justice of Allah in its true sense. He said that to solve the contemporary problems faced to the humanity, they must follow the path of Hussaniyat.
RAWALPINDI, September 20: The Patron-in-Chief of Supreme Shia Ulema Board and chief of Tehreek NafazFiqh-e-Jafariya, Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi hasannounced the 14-point Cod of Azadari, here Wednesday. Answering questions from newsmen at a Press conference he addressed, here at the headquarters of the Maktab-e-Tashih, he said Azadari Imam AaliMuqaam (A.S.) is the protector of religion and Shariat, monitors human dignity, is dearest to us from everything else in the universe, is our jugular vein and is the source of survival. All evil forces should know that no interference will be accepted in AzadariMazloom-e-Karbala.
Answering another question, the TNFJ chief made it clear that Ashoor incident in Rawalpindi was a big conspiracy aimed at promoting anarchy in the country which has now been unearthed. He demanded that innocent persons involved in cases thereof should be set free and real culprits should be dealt an iron hand. He called upon the Federal and Balochistan governments to form an authoritative committee for solution of problems of Zaireen stuck up at Quetta-Taftan border which should lay down a schedule for Zaireen’s traffic on this route while train traffic on Zahidan route should also be restored. He demanded that security of all sensitive places including Rawalpindi may be handed over to the Army and Rangers while emergent OIC summit should be summoned to discuss the atrocities being committed against Rohingya Muslims in Burma.
Agha Moosavi said that noose should be tightened around the banned organisations and calling any recognized Makatab as non-Muslim may be declared a cognizable offence, Muharram Control Rooms should be set up in the Interior Ministry and provinces and they should be linked with the TNFJ Muharram Committee Azadari Cell. He said government may create facilities for participants of Majalis and Azadari processions, patrolling by Elite Force and Rangers may be ensured for Muharram security, Ulema and Zakireen may give priority to national security, brotherhood and mutual understanding.
The TNFJ chief said crushing the banned group is necessary for the ultimate success of Operation RaddulFasaad. He said Azadari is the most effective and peaceful protest of the oppressed. He said all Shia and Sunni brethren will observe the mourning of Nawasa-e-Rasool (A.S.) jointly. He reminded the government that she is bound to provide protection to EidMilad-un-Nabi and Azadari procession under the May 21, 1985 Junejo-Moosavi agreement. He said Azadari is the name of positivity and they would never encourage negative activities.
Answering another question, he made it clear that there is no restriction of Tehreek NafazFiqh-e-Jafariya, therefore, names of our workers should be withdrawn from the Schedule 4. Replying another question, he said in 16 August meeting our representative delegation with Federal Interior Minister Ahsan Iqbal and Federal Religious Minister Sardar Muhammad Yousaf stressed was given on setting up Control Rooms for the oncoming Muharram and forming a Coordination Committee for solution of issues with mutual consultation. He said the TNFJ had sent the names of its representatives for this committee but we have not yet received any names of government representatives nor any notification has been issued for setting of Muharram Control Rooms. Moreover, he added, persons included in the Ulema Board formed in Punjab are not the representatives of Makatab and their decisions are being imposed on Azadaran and Zakireen which a source of unrest and should be settled.
Meanwhile, the Quaid-i-MillatJafariya announced the following Code of Azadari at his Press conference: (1) Pakistan’s Armed Forces are confronting the internal and external enemies. Army Chief General Qamar JavedBajwa has announced that now it is world’s turn to ‘do more’ therefore all national institutions should come on the same page by gathering behind the Pakistan’s Armed Forces; (2) Terrorist groups declared banned officially may be dealt with an iron hand and restriction may be imposed on them against openly working with new names and on their foreign funding; (3) Calling any recognized Makatab as non-Muslim may be declared a cognizable offence; (4) Government may create facilities for participants of Majalis and Azadari processions, Azadaran may not be harassed, special monitoring of buildings around and vacated places may be made.

Cooperation of Ibrahim Scouts and Volunteer Mukhtar Force may be sought along with police and Rangers in security matters. (5) The care-takers of Imambargahs, Aza Khanas, organisers of Majalis and Matmi processions may also make security arrangements themselves; (6) Ulema and Zakireen may give priority to national integrity and brotherhood, avoid provocation and preach the sacrifices of the Shuhada-e-Karbala in a positive manner; (7) The sacrifices of the Shuhada-e-Karbala may be highlighted in an effective manner and musical and comedy programmes and dramas may be suspended during the Ashra-e-Muharram.

We, under the Quranic commandment of تعاونو اعلی البر و التقویٰ are ever ready for practical cooperation in the larger interest of the nation and the country.
The Quaid-i-MillatJafariya, Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi said that it may be kept in mind that we confronted dictators and tyrant rulers in different eras, we were put in jails, were put alive in wall being constructed, minarets were made from our blood and heads, our bodies were trampled, were blasted with explosives but the echoes of ‘LabbaikYa Hussain’ continued coming from every drop of our blood and from every particle of the body. We cannot be bowed down or bought over, we will never bargain on our beliefs and motherland and nor will allow anyone else to do so. In the end, Agha Moosavi specially prayed for the country, nation, Islamic World and the oppressed.
ISLAMABAD, August 16: A representative delegation of the Tehreek e Nifaz e Fiqah Jafariya led by the Secretary General Syed Shujaat Ali Bukhari met with the Federal Interior Minister in Islamabad on Wednesday. Federal Minister for religious affairs was also present on the occasion. The Additional Secretary General of TNFJ Col (r ) Syed Sakhawat Hussain Kazmi, Central Secretary Information Allama Syed Qamar Haider Zaidi, Speaker Syed Bu Ali Mehdi, District President Islamabad AllamaBasharat Hussain Immami, Provincial president for Punjab Allama Hussain Muqaddasi and Additional Secretary Information Syed Shahab Rizwi were part of the delegation.
According to the handout issued from the TNFJ’s office, the delegation mentioned that evil powers have been conspiring against Pakistan since its inception and trying to disintegrate the nation on provincial, sectarian, and linguistic basis while the prime objective of the creation of Tehreek e Nifaz e Fiqah Jafariya was to thwart this conspiracy while representing the Shia school of thought. Therefore, Tehreek e Nifaz e Fiqah Jafariya raised voice for the rights of the Shias in a positive manner to eliminate the impression that Pakistan is a sectarian state. In this course, the restoration of democracy and signing of 21 May 1985 Moosavi-Junejo agreement was achieved which not only announced lifting of the ban from religious processions but also guaranteed to accept and meet the demands of the Shia school of thought. Today, the religious processions all over Pakistan are brought out in accordance with the same agreement however; significant progress has not been made on other issues. Shujaat Bukhari said that the prime focus of Tehreek e Nifaz e Fiqah Jafariya’s struggle has been to prevent Pakistan from becoming a battlefield of proxy wars. Realizing the same threat, Quaid e Millat e Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi had demanded to impose ban on foreign funding of the religious organizations in 1980 which if acted upon, would have saved Pakistan from falling prey to the menace of terrorism.
He stressed upon the fact that Tehreek e Nifaz e Fiqah Jafariya condemns the electoral politics sectarian or linguistic basis and considers it as a national suicide however, we consider casting votes as a national responsibility and it must be casted in favor of the rightful deserving candidates and parties. He said that although the fundamental demands of Tehreek e Nifaz e Fiqah Jafariya are mentioned in the Moosavi-Junejo agreement however, it is important to bring the recently produced issues to the government’s notice. He said that formation of the National Action Plan was a historic step which is similar to the Moosavi Peace Formula presented in the Supreme Court of Pakistan during 1997 however, the dilemma is that it could not be acted upon completely because of the differences between the local administration and the central leadership. Therefore, our foremost demand is to ensure action on all points of the National Action Plan. The only resolution of the incidents like bomb blast in Quetta, target killing in D.I.Khan resides in acting upon the National Action Plan.
He expressed concerns on the fact that the proscribed oragnizations have been freely participating in Elections and holding rallies and congregations which is a big question martk? Banned organizations operating with old or new names must be stopped, the facilitators of the terrorists must be clutched as otherwise, the fruits of all anti-terrorism operations including the Zarb e Azab, Raddulfasaad, and Operation Khyber-4 will be lost. Muharram ul Haram is arriving and the elements belonging to the proscribed organizations often succeed in becoming members of the peace committees at different places which extends them a license for their evil actions, while it happens because the local administration is often unaware of even the names of the proscribed organizations. Therefore, the lists of proscribed organizations must be shared till the local police stations level while members of proscribed organizations must not be allowed to enter in the peace committees. Local administration of some of the areas mistakenly booked innocent people in the Schedule-IV. As TNFJ is not a proscribed organization therefore, the names of its members booked in the Schedule-IV must be removed from the lists. Ashura incident of Raja Bazar Rawalpindi was a heinous conspiracy to instigate unrest in Pakistan which could not succeed due to the strong bond between Shia and Sunnis. Cases made against the innocent people who were booked in this case as fill in the blanks must be ended and the real culprits must be clutched. The Shia school of thought is deprived of its due ideological representation in most of the government institutions made for the Islamization which also include the Islamic Ideology Council, Royat e Hilaal Committee therefore, utilizing these institutions for the sake of political bargains must be stopped and their command must be rotated among all schools of thought including the Shia school of thought to give a strong message of Pakistan’s ideological strength and internal harmony goes to the world.
The secretary General of TNFJ said that Tehreek e Nifaz e Fiqah Jafariya opposes imposition of the ideologies of one sect over other and demand that Hanafi and Jafari sects who equally participated in the foundation of Pakistan must be given equal rights. Majalis e Aza and religious processions in connection with the sacrifice of the grandson of the holy Prophet, Imam Hussain (A.S) are consistently held from 1st of Muharram ul Haram to 8th of Rabi ul Awal. On this occasion, the interior ministry sets up control rooms and appoints coordinating officers on the demand of TNFJ, to safeguard against any untoward incident therefore, announcement of these control rooms must be promptly made while these rooms must be instructed to stay connected with Tehreek e Nifaz e Fiqah Jafariya to ensure peace through effective coordination and the conspiracies of anti-peace forces are thwarted. Similarly, the presence of responsible officers must also be ensured in these control rooms. There is a custom of announcing ban on Zakireen and Ulamas before the start of Muharram ul Haram and the list includes the deceased Ulama and Zakireen.
He demanded not to impose ban on peaceful Zakireen who address Majalis e Aza as these bans create problems for the organizers of the Majalis e Aza and the religious customs and traditions while also hurt Zakireen and Ulama economically. He said that the Ulama Board formed in Punjab includes elements which cannot be called as representatives of the schools of thought. The unjust decision of this board are being imposed on Azadars and Zakireen which are damaging government’s reputation among the people and therefore, must be addressed immediately. The leader of the delegation also notified about the problems faced by the Zaireen (pilgrims) and mentioned that most of the Zaireen traveling for the pilgrimage of the shrines of AimmaTahireen (A.S) and other religious personalities belong to poor families however, they are kept at Quetta Taaftan Border for several weeks which costs them badly and often leaves them starving. These problems can be resolved appropriately through better coordination as thousands of Zaireen are blocked at the Quetta-Taaftan border even at this point of time which must be resolved immediately. Furthermore, the Quetta-Zahidan Rail service must also be started.
TNFJ reminded that Auliya Allah played an unmatchable role in spreading Islam in the subcontinent. From Abdulla Shah Ghazi, Sakhi Laal Shahbaz Qalandar, Shah Abdul Lateef Bhitaai to Sakhi Sarwar Shah Zain Badshah are among the ancestors of Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi. Since a suicide attack during the speech of Quaid e Millat e Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi at the shrine of Hazrat Bari Imam during 2005, the Urs and Azadari is stopped at the shrine which is a matter of grace concern and therefore, it is demanded that the Urs and Azadari on the shrine must be resumed to practically thwart the aims and objectives of terrorists, TNFJ will fully cooperate in this regard. The delegation of TNFJ regretted that importing foreign agents continues in Pakistan therefore, the foreign funding of all religious organizations and institutions must be banned, while religious leaders must also be held accountable through their financial audits. Such an accountability will expose many conspiracies and reveal the elements behind them. TNFJ volunteers to such accountability before anyone else.
Shujaat Bukhari further notified that social media has been playing an evil role in spreading hatred therefore, the laws of Cyber crimes must be strengthened and action on these laws must be ensured. Calling any Muslim as a Non-Muslim must be a punishable offense while terrorists must not be associated with any sect or religion. Terrroists and evil doers must be clutched fearlessly. The then interior minster had formed a 5 member committee for the resolution of problems faced by the Shia school of thoughtin 2013 comprising of the members from TNFJ and the Interior ministry, this committee must be revived so that mutual coordination could be ensured and steps could be taken in favor of the national interest. TNFJ delegation reminded that the beloved motherland Pakistan was founded on the name of Islam and is the result of struggle by all established schools of thought. The delegation pledged to continue efforts for the protection of the respect and dignity of Pakistan in accordance with the sayings of Hakeem ul UmmatAllama Muhammad Iqbal and Quaid e Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah while every citizen must fully support our security forces and armed forces in their fight against terrorism and we will never let Pakistan deviate from its founding ideology i.e. the The Two-Nation theory. The federal interior Minster Ahsan Iqbal and the Federal Minister for religious affairs Sardar Muhammad Yousaf carefully listened to the central delegation of TNFJ and assured of prompt action on the demands.
ISLAMABAD, June 21: The Patron in-Chief of Supreme Shia Ulama Board and Head of Tehreek e Nifaz e Fiqah Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi has said if OIC really cares about the problems faced by the Muslim Ummah, it must immediately call a meeting to thwart the conspiracy of isolating Qatar and targeting Iran by ending sanctions against these two countries as otherwise it will lose the significance of its existence and this is what the colonial powers want. Islamic Conference that was founded after the 1969 incident of burning of BaitulMuqaddas had to formulate strategy to resolve common problems, enhance mutual brotherhood, and confront the challenges and external threats faced by Islamic Ummah however, it has failed to achieve its objectives and therefore, a new Arab Islamic American alliance came into being whose first evil step was to declare Iran as a terrorist state and isolating and sanctioning Qatar, let us see what happens next?
He said this while addressing to a grand workshop of TNFJ on Wednesday. Agha Moosavi said that the real reason of tension between India and Pakistan is the Kashmir dispute due to which India imposed the war of 1965 and got defeated then founded her secret agency RAW to strengthen control over Kashmir, disintegrate east Pakistan in 71, and then tried to threaten Pakistan by performing nuclear tests however, when Pakistan responded with her own nuclear tests, it left India shocked. He said that India knows that if now she imposed any war on Pakistan, it will be a nuclear war that would cost more than twenty one million lives and tsunamis will destroy the whole region. That is why she appointed her agent KalbhoshanYadev in Balochistan to start killings in the cities of Pakistan. He said that successful operations of KalbhoshanYadev further motivated the threatening Indian however, after the arrest of Kalbhoshan and announcement of death sentence for him through the court martial, India got disturbed and started using the posts of Afghan army against Pakistan. He said that Pakistan was forced to install fences on the Pak-Afghan Boarder while India continued escalations at our eastern borders.
He said that Indian army chief is further deteriorating the situation by threatening Pakistan to rescue the Indian spy kalbhoshan because the former spies arrested were released by Pakistan however, this time Indian plans will not succeed. Quaid e Millat e Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi announced to observe Youm ul Quds on the occasion ofJummatulWidaa that will be observed as Youm ul Quds Himayat e Mazloomeen to raise voice of protest against the oppression of Jews and Hindus in Palestine and Kashmir.
ISLAMABAD, June 19: The Patron in-Chief of Supreme Shia UIama Board and Head of Tehreek e Nifaz e Fiqah Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi has said that Muslim Ummah is facing numerous problems including oppression and terrorism because of distancing itself from the teachings of the holy Quran and the holy Prophet (PBUH&HP). Evil powers have been hatching new conspiracies to victimize Muslims and more than 1.5 billion Muslims all over the world have fallen into the ditches of humiliation and disgrace while after the creation of Arab Islamic American alliance, they are not in need of any foreign enemy as they will keep fighting against each other instead of fighting against the disbelief and Shirk and it is a pity that Muslims are playing stooges in the hands of the colonial powers. To resolve problems, and get rid of unrest and chaos, Muslims must adopt the teachings of the holy Quran and sayings of the holy Prophet (PBUH&HP) as their source of guidance which guarantees success in this world and the world hereafter.
He said this while addressing to a program arranged to celebrate the Youm e Jashan e Nazool e Quran i.e. to celebrate the day when the holy Quran descended.Agha Moosavi that the unmatchable book of holy Quran claims that “If Jinnis and Human together make efforts to create a book like the holy Quran, they will not be able to even if they help each other”. He said that the books descended on former Prophets of God were subjected to changes with the passage of time however, the responsibility of protecting the holy Quran has been taken by the Almighty Allah as the holy Quran says “We descended this Zikr, and only we will protect it”. Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi said that the holy Quran has guaranteed success and dignity to those people who accepts its lessons with sincerity while those who abandon its teachings face humiliation and disgrace in this world and hereafter.
Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi said that the holy Quran changed the course of the human history and produced a revolution in the lives of people which cultivated an eternal movement that continues for the last fourteen hundred years. He said that Quran is an unmatchable model of description and explanation and the source of guidance for the mankind. The holy Prophet (PBUH&HP) stated about the blessings of the holy Quran as the holy Prophet (PBUH&HP) said that the holy Quran provides the path of success during the eras of Fitnas therefore, whoever will act upon the teachings of the Quran will succeed while whoever abandons its teachings, Almighty Allah will break his backbone.
