Addressing the participants of the meeting, Raja said the height of subservience is Shahadat that desired by the Momin. He made it clear that death is Haq and the death of Shahadat is the greatest blessing that could not come on one’s desire but it is showered by Allah.
He reiterated his resolve to continue their struggle for the protection of high objective, religious values for which Allama Fazil Alvi and Maulana Maula Bux Jafri sacrificed their life. He said no power on earth could bow us down as Allah Has promised that righteousness will prevail and humanity has to be protected. He demanded from the government to correct the law and order situation in the country on the occasion of Chehlum of Allama Fazil Alvi Shaheed and Maulana Maula Bux Jafri Shaheed on May 26.
A resolution adopted at the meeting resolved to give priority to the honour and dignity of the religion and the motherland over all other things.
Another resolution while strongly condemning massacre of innocent citizens in Afghanistan and Iraq, particularly the missile attack in Najaf-e-Ashraf on Tuesday night and Baghdad hussainiah attack, called upon the international organisations to take important steps to save the honour and sanctity of the holy places and no delay should be allowed in reconstruction of holy shrines of Hazrat Imam Ali Naqvi and Hazrat Imam Hassan Askari in Samarra.
The conveners and secretaries appointed to organise country-wide Chehlum programmes are: Allama Fakhar Abbas Abidi and Allama Sadiqi (Islamabad), Allama Abul Hassan Taqi and Zamir Javed Advocate (Punjab), Agha Syed Mohsin Al-Hussaini and Syed Abrar Hussain Kazmi (Azad Kashmir & Northern Areas), Assad Ali Hasani and Wajid Kiani (Sarhad), Basit Ali and Shabbir Ali Qazilbash (Balochistan), and Badar Trimizi and Dr. Saqib Kazmi (Sindh).
RAWALPINDI, May 23: The Tehreek Nafaz-e-Fiqh-e-Jafariya Pakistan has announced to observe the Chehlum of Allama Fazil Hussain Alvi Shaheed and Maulana Maula Bux Jafri Shaheed on May 26 throughout the country.
A decision to this effect was taken at a meeting of central office-bearers of the Tehreek. Syed Mazhar Ali Shah Advocate, Secretary General of the Tehreek, presided over the meeting that held here on Tuesday. The participants of the meeting also reviewed the current situation prevailing in the country and the organisational progress on this occasion.
Delivering his presidential address, Mazhar Ali said our main objective is Islam that is commensurate with subservience to Allah and serving His creature which is a blessing for us while sacrificing life for this purpose is Shahadat.
The live nations remember their Shuhada, therefore, the TNFJ would observe Chehlum of Allama Fazil Alvi Shaheed and Maulana Maula Bux Jafri Shaheed with national spirit on Friday, May 26 throughout the country. Majalis-e-Taraheem, Quran Khwani and Fateha Khwani will be organised in all small and big cities and towns of all the four provinces, Azad Kashmir and Northern Areas including the Federal Capital Islamabad for upgrading the status of the Shuhada on this occasion. Ulema, waizeen and zakireen in their addresses would pay homage to the Shuhada.
Mazhar Ali said that Allama Alvi and Maulana Jafri played an important role in preaching and disseminating Tauheed, Risalat and Wilayat as a result of which the satanic forces were afraid of them and they have displayed their heinousness and cowardice by murdering them which is an open act of terrorism.
He demanded from the government to arrest the assassins of Allama Alvi and Maulana Jafri forthwith and set up a tribunal to investigate all these incidents. He expressed his concern that the terrorist elements were still roaming about openly and that poses a question mark in the presence of Anti-Terrorism Act.
By a resolution, adopted at the meeting, the participants reiterated their resolve to offer any sacrifice for respect to Marja’iyyat, protection of dignity of Sadaat, achievement of rights, honour, integrity, and defence of Pakistan.
Another resolution called upon the government to set up a broad-based tribunal to probe all incidents of terrorism and unveil the real culprits. It strongly condemned the arrest of innocent people with regard to Nishtar Park incident and declaring it an injustice demanded from the government to release all innocent persons forthwith and arrest the real assassins instead and give them exemplary punishment so as to thwart the combined enemy’s conspiracy to create anarchy in the nation and the country and destabilise the motherland.
Meanwhile, TNFJ Central Committee has been formed to organise programmes of Chehlum of Allama Fazil Alvi and Maulana Maula Bux Jafri. Zulfiqar Ali Raja has been nominated as Convener, while Assad Haideri as Deputy Convener and Dr. S. Zaman as Secretary of the Committee.
RAWALPINDI, May 21: The Quaid-i-Millat-i-Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi has demanded from the government to satisfy the followers of Maktab Jaffar ibne Muhammad (A.S.) by implementing the May 21, 1985 Junejo-Moosavi agreement.
Talking to the representative delegation of elite from Bangash area here on Sunday, he said only Pakistan enjoys this singular honour throughout the world that it was created in the name of Islam for which Islam was declared as its official religion. Under the article 3 of the Constitution, government stands guarantee for all type of exploitation.
He lamented that a dictator staged coup de etat in 1977 instead of fulfilling the norms of constitution, justice and fair-play tearing apart the country’s Constitution and began his fatal struggle to turn Pakistan into a sectarian State.
Agha Moosavi said that we were the first to raise voice against this negation of Basic Ideology, ideology of Allama Iqbal and the principles of the Quaid-i-Azam openly. Therefore, he said, the Tehreek Nafaz-e-Fiqh-e-Jafariya took over the Islamabad Secretariat and forced the tyrant ruler to bow down. The same tyrant ruler came out again with an announcement to limit the Milad-un-Nabi and Azadari processions to the places of worship. On this, we began an agitation from the forum of Hussaini Mahaz (Front) and started courting arrests against oppression, and for the protection of Azadari and rights of the Maktab-e-Tashayyo.
This agitation lasted for 8 months during which 14,000 Sunni-Shia Muslims courted arrest while Ashraf Ali Rizvi and Safdar Ali Naqvi presented the sacrifice of their life. As a result May 21, 1985 Junejo-Moosavi agreement was signed comprising 11 demands that included separate Deenyat curricula and separate Auqaf.
He said the biggest success of ours is that we did not let them turn Pakistan into a sectarian State and will not let them do so in future also. By the Grace of God, Pakistan is Islamic Republic of Pakistan today. Today motherland Pakistan is confronted with terrorism that is a gift from that tyrant ruler but we have proved through our deeds that no power on earth could create differences amongst Sunnis and Shias and one who would try to do so is neither a Sunni nor a Shia but is the joint enemy of them both.
The TNFJ chief expressed satisfaction that President Pervez Musharraf taking a good decision not only enforced Anti-Terrorism Act but also unveiled the terrorists and banned them also. It is however a different story that the same banned groups were roaming around with new names and have joined different alliances. There is a possibility that they are the requirement of some politicians and rulers?
The Quaid-i-Millat-i-Jafariya Agha Moosavi said we still stick to our point of view that there is no sectarian conflict in Pakistan and a terrorist keeps no religion, Maktab or a country, he is only a terrorist and should be tackled with in that context only. However there is need to make difference between terrorism and jihad, he added.
He said we respect all organisations struggling for freedom and independence the biggest proof of that is that not only we but Pakistan has also accepted the ban imposed by America on a jihadi organization. The Article 14 of the Constitution clearly states that in the educational institutions no one will be forced to undergo any such education and worship that is not in accordance with his belief. Therefore, making arrangement for religious education for their students is the basic right of every religious group. Similarly no Waqf could be used against the will of its Waqif, therefore, the government should give practical shape to separate Shia Auqaf under the agreement, he added.
He made it clear that biggest problem confronted by the world of humanity is crisis of terrorism the basic reason of which is lack of justice and fair-play. He said the objective of creation of the Islamic State is restoration of justice and fair-play.
Meanwhile, the delegation members resolved to support any call of the Quaid-i-Millat-i-ariya Agha Hamid Moosavi for realisation of religious rights and promotion of mission of Hussainiyyat.
ISLAMABAD, May 20: Majlis-e-Aza in connection with the annual pursadari was held at the Darbar (shrine) of Hazrat Bari Imam Noorpur Shahhan Islamabad under the auspices of Pursa Bari Imam Committee of Tehreek Nafaz-e-Fiqh-e-Jafariya District Islamabad in which thousands of zakireen drawn from all over the country participated.
TNFJ District Council Islamabad President Allama Basharat Hussain Imami addressing the Majlis said martyrdom is that great honour for which only those people are selected who are liked by Allah. Those who kissed Shahadat last year in Bari Imam incident have put the head of the nation and the country high. Terrorism, blasts and attacks could not divert us from the path of Hussainiyyat. He said the blood of the Shuhada would be honoured.
Allama Syed Mohsin Ali Hamdani said Azadari is the symbol of Mazloom-e-Karbala Hussain ibne Ali (A.S.) that is a universal protest of the oppressed against oppression and brutality in every era and as per saying of Quaid-i-Millat-i-Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi the peaceful eternal protest - Azadari - would continue till the Zahoor-e-Imam Mahdi (A.S.).
Allama Fakhar Abbas Abidi, President, Pursa Bari Imam Committee of Tehreek Nafaz Fiqh-e-Jafariya District Islamabad got a resolution approved from the gathering in the echoes of various slogans. The resolution said during the era of Field Marshal Muhammad Ayub Khan, all mazars ware out of Auqaf Department’s custody and all functions were held with fanfare without any fear and people belonging to all walks of life used to participate in the same without any consideration of the maktab, maslak or country. The resolution said that Hazrat Bari Imam is equally popular and respected in all schools of thought and on the last day of Usr Hazrat Bari Imam, pursadari programme is organised since long before creation of Pakistan. The Quaid-i-Millat-i-Jafariya Agha Hamid Moosavi performs Ziarat by participating in the pursadari being his relationship with the Khanwada-e-Bari Imam.
The resolution said that last year during the Majlis-e-Aza when Agha Moosavi was about to reach the venue, when a strong bomb blast took place as a result of which dozens of Zaireen and Azadaran kissed martyrdom while hundreds of them were injured some of which were still undergoing treatment in different hospitals of the city.
The resolution said that Tehreek Nafaz-e-Fiqh-e-Jafariya is the only representative organisation of the Maktab-e-Tashayyo with the only objective of promoting peace and disseminating oneness and brotherhood. The Tehreek displayed utmost patience of the Bari Imam incident and did not allow any riot throughout the country which was also recognised by all sections of society including the government. This policy was the continuation of the policy adopted at the time of Shahadat of Aun Muhammad Rizvi and Shah-e-Najaf incident. Earlier, during the 8-month long agitation thousands of arrests were courted, two persons kissed Shahadat but no loss was allowed to be caused to anyone.
The resolution lamented that the government did not take the Bari Imam incident seriously. Almost one year has passed by but neither any probe tribunal was formed nor any culprits were arrested or unveiled. No loss was compensated while no government personality even bothered to offer condolence on their death. The TNFJ adopted gentlemanliness despite in control of doing anything. The resolution said that the TNFJ had taken over the Islamabad Secretariat, had carried out 8-month long agitation and all this was done peacefully because we keep the religion, motherland and its people dearer than everything. We left the justice regarding Bari Imam incident to Allah, the resolution concluded.
The resolution demanded from the government to set up a broad-based Tribunal to probe all incidents including the Bari Imam incident and unveil the culprits fulfilling the norms of justice and fair-play and giving them an exemplary punishment.
It said that we are still following the point of view of Quaid-i-Millat-i-Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi that a terrorist keeps no religion, maslak, or a country, he is only a terrorist. The resolution said that Bari Imam incident was also an act of open terrorism. President Musharraf had taken many good steps to root out terrorism and not only enforced Anti-Teerorism Act rather also banned the terrorist groups. The resolution called upon President Musharraf to find out who is sabotaging steps taken by him because the banned groups are seen in government and opposition fora and are given full coverage by the media.
Zakir Syed Aftab Hussain Kazmi and Bawa Syed Riaz Hussain Shah also addressed the gathering. Later, Zuljinah procession was taken out in which Quaid-i-Millat-i-Jafariya Agha Moosavi participated. He also performed Ziarat of Taburrakat and participated in Matamdari. The procession was terminated after reaching the shrine of Hazrat Bari Imam where Bawa Syed Riaz Hussain Shah led the special pray. Fateha Khwani for the Shuhada of Bari Imam incident was also performed.
ISLAMABAD, May 20: Aalamgir Youm-e-Shuhada-e-Bari Imam Incident (Universal Day of Bari Imam Incident Martyrs) was observed throughout the country with respect and dignity on the call of Quaid-i-Millat-i-Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi with a pledge that those high objectives and targets for which the brave devotees laid down their life on the occasion of annual pursadari of Hazrat Bari Imam Kazmi Al-Mash'hadi would be protected and the holy blood of martyrs would never be allowed to go waste.
The main programme of the Alamgir Youm-e-Shuhada was held at the Darbar (shrine) of Hazrat Bari Imam in the Federal Capital Islamabad where Quaid-i-Millat-i-Jafariya Agha Moosavi along with ulema and TNFJ elite attended the shrine of Hazrat Bari Sarkar.
Addressing on the occasion, Agha Moosavi said life is the name of belief and struggle and whatever work is done with sincerity of purpose and for the pleasure of Allah would be declared as worship, and Shahadat in its way is a blessing. He said there is a saying of the Maula-e-Kainaat Hazrat Ali (A.S.) that it makes no difference whether the death comes on me or I come over death; I love death that much that a child keeps with his mother’s milk.
He said I want to tell the whole world that wherever in the world there are human beings, they are our part and Muslims are the part of our body, no one could create rift amongst them. By making the Bari Sarkar my witness, I would like to resolve that no one will be allowed to create differences amongst Sunnis and Shias till I am alive. He said death has to come and according to a saying of the Holy Prophet (SAW) that Haq (truth) is with Ali (A.S.), therefore, we who follow Ali (A.S.) do not fear death, whether we are cut into pieces, hanged, buried alive, set on fire, and the substance of our body thrown in air, every particle of this substance would cry that Sunni-Shia are brethren to each other.
The TNFJ chief made it clear that we would continue supporting the oppressed and opposing and condemning the oppressors wherever they are in the world without any discrimination about Maslak, country and region keeping in line with our forefathers.
Paying homage to Shuhada of Kashmir, Palestine, Afghanistan, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Lebanon, holy places of Burasa, Baghdad, Kufa, Karbala, Samarra, Najaf-e-Ashraf, and incidents of Nishtar Park, Quetta, Tank, Hangu, Northern Areas, Bari Imam and earthquake victims, reiterated his resolve that neither our forefathers bargained nor we or our next generations would do so.
Later, he led the protest Matmi rally organised by Pursa Bari Imam Committee in line with the Alamgir Shuhada-e-Bari Imam incident.
The Matmi demonstrators were carrying banners and placards inscribed with different slogans and were raising vociferous slogans for the immediate arrest of the culprits of Bari Imam incident.
All Zuljinah and Alam processions taken out from Darbar Bari Imam were terminated at the shrine. Matmi Halqas (groups) coming from all over the country carried out heavy zanjeer-zani and Matamdari and paid pursa to Hazrat Bari Imam. Banners in huge number were erected by the TNFJ, MO, MSO, and Mukhtar Generation while jawans of Mukhtar Force and Ibrahim Scouts performed their duties along with District Administration officials and the heavy police contingent.
Participants of pursadari and Matmi organisations displayed exemplary discipline on this occasion. TNFJ District Islamabad President Allama Basharat Hussain Imami, and Convener of the Pursa Bari Imam Committee Allama Fakhar Abbas Abidi lauded and thanked the District Administration for their fool-proof arrangements.
Meanwhile, according to reports reaching the TNFJ headquarters, Majlis Shuhada-e-Bari Imam incident organised by TNFJ Regional Council at Imambargah Hussaini Malir was addressed by Allama Syed Jafar Raza Naqvi.
In Peshawar, Provincial Council TNFJ Sarhad President Sardar Hassan Ali Qazilbash addressed the gathering at Imambargah Master Ghulam Haider.
In Quetta, TNFJ Provincial Nazim-ul-Amoor Muhammad Ali Advocate addressed the gathering at Imambargah Hazara Town.
In Larkana, TNFJ Sindh Province President Syed Lutfullah Shah Lakiari addressed a similar gathering at Imambargah Imam Musa Kazim.
