RAWALPINDI, February 22: The Quaid-i-Millat Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi has said that the oppressed and Muslim nations would have to show practical display of mutual unity and understanding so as to thwart the heinous conspiracy of the atheist world to divide and rule. This was stated by him while addressing a special Majlis on the conclusion of Hafta Ehad-o-Paiman observed in connection with the Shahadat of Hazrat Imam Hassan Askari (A.S.) and to say Alwidah (good-bye) to Ayyam-e-Aza. He said how much superior the honour and dignity of those Khasan-e-Khuda, Anbia, Mursaleen, and Swaleheen would be who laced the human being with guidance. He said the representatives of Allah had to confront dictators in every era. He said the life span of Hazrat Imam Hassan Askari (A.S.) spread over 28 years was spent in difficulties and gaol and he confronted six tyrant rulers during his life span i.e. Muttawakil, Muetiz, Mustaeen, Muntasir, Mehtadi, and Muetamid. The foundation of their rule rested on murder, arson and bloodshed and as per author of Marooj Al-Zahib, 5 lakh people were murdered only in the era of Muetamid who did not hesitate carrying out heaviest oppression against Hazrat Imam Askari (A.S.) who proved through his character that we cannot be bowed down or diverted from the right path, he said and added that Imam Hassan Askari (A.S.) kissed Shahadat as a punishment for not bowing down before the evil.
Agha Moosavi said that at present the whole humanity is confronted with satanic forces and the Islamic World is surrounded by the chief of international terrorist, and Kashmir and Palestinian issues are unresolved. In these circumstances, he added, the oppressed nations and the Islamic World are under the obligation to devise a strong and stable policy for solution of internal problems confronted by them within their States and adopt the policy of mutual understanding so as to thwart the heinous conspiracy of the satanic forces and the enemies of humanity. He said the status of Sha’air Allah and holy places are high like that of Muslim and Momin. He said had the human dignity and honour respected then the Muslim blood would have been valuable, human rights were respected and no one would have the courage to desecrate the holy places and violate the honour and dignity of the Khasan-e-Illahi because, he added, it is Godly Promise that: We have sent Zikr (Quran) and We are going to defend it (Al-Quran). When Allah Has taken the responsibility of defending the Zikr and Ahl-e-Zikr then no Nimrah, Pharaoh, Yazid or international terrorist could cause any harm to the same, he added.
The Quaid-i-Millat Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi said once a person asked Hazrat Imam Jafar-e-Sadiq (A.S.) about his Asaa (stick) which he was holding in his hand: Oh, the son of Rasool (SAAW), is this stick belongs to your forefather Rasool Allah (SAAW)? The Imam (A.S.) said: Yes. He came forward and kissed the stick. On it the Imam (A.S.) extended his hand towards him and said: That is the stick and this is the piece of flesh of the Rasool (SAAW). Thus the Zuriyyat-e-Rasool is superior even than the Sha’air Allah. That is why their love has been declared as Ajr-e-Risalat. Thanking all countrymen for practical display of mutual unity and brotherhood during the Ayyam-e-Aza, he reiterated his resolve to continue the Mission of Azadari, which is the eternal protest of the oppressed the world over against oppression, till the Zahoor of Imam-e-Zamana (A.S.) with sincerity of purpose and all Sunni-Shia brethren would thwart every conspiracy and mischief of the combined enemy against Islam and Pakistan by becoming a concrete wall against them.
Meanwhile, Taboot and Chub-Tazia processions will be taken out throughout the country on Tuesday, 8th Rabiul Awwal in connection with the Shahadat of Hazrat Imam Hassan Askari (A.S.). In Rawalpindi, the main procession will be taken out from Imambargah Hifazat Ali Shah, Bohar Bazar at 2.00 a.m. while Hafta Ehad-o-Paiman Committee of the TNFJ has finalized country-wide Alwidahi processions.
RAWALPINDI, February 15: The Quaid-i-Millat Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi has said that the Parliament, judiciary, administration and media should utilize their energy in upgrading Pakistan instead of downgrading each other and create the spirit of patience and forbearance and courage to accept each other otherwise our combined enemy would benefit from the situation and all responsibility of any untoward situation faced by the country would rest with rulers and politicians. This was stated by him while announcing “International Hafta Ehad-o-Paiman” that is being observed from 2-8 Rabiul Awwal throughout the country marking the Shahadat of Imam Hassan Askari (A.S.) and say goodbye to Ayyam-e-Aza.
Agha Moosavi said Azadari is our jugular vein and the biggest guarantee of survival of religion and Shariat. He said utilizing the human life for the supremacy of religion and Shariat is a good omen and presenting sacrifices of life is a great worship that is called Shahadat while Shahadat is the height of Bandagi and blessing. He said during the shortest era of life of Hazrat Imam Hassan Askari (A.S.) spread over 28 years the oppressive rulers tried to divert the Imam (A.S.) from religion and the right path because the oppressive and tyrant rulers in every era always desired to keep the religion and Shariat under their control rather they also desire to make amendments in it keeping to their own desires but the Khanwada-e-Muhammad (SAAW) and Aal-e-Muhammad (A.S.) never accepted the same. They openly made it clear on the world that Halal-e-Muhammad is actually Halal-e-Allah and Haram-e-Muhammad is actually Haram-e-Muhammad and no oppressor, dictator and tyrant ruler could change this status.
The TNFJ chief said even Nabi and Rasool could not make any changes in religion and Shariat without Allah’s permission. That is why, he added, Nawasa-e-Rasool Hazrat Imam Hussain (A.S.) preferred to sacrifice his life along with his 72 near and dear ones in the plain of Karbala so as to prove that no one including Yazid could make changes in the religion. He said Azadari is the greatest jehad against the oppressors and is the strongest citadel of religion and Shariat and the enemies of religion and Shariat have always faced humiliation from it.
The Quaid-i-Millat Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi paying condolences to the followers of Muhammad (SAAW) and Aal-e-Muhammad (A.S.) and pious Sahaba Kubaar reiterated his resolve to keep the religion and Shariat i.e. Hussainiyyat alive and peaceful universal protest of the oppressed world in the shape of Azadari will continue till the Zahoor-e-Mehdi. He appealed all countrymen to organize Majalis-e-Aza and Matmi processions and strongly condemn the colonial oppression going on in the oppressed world i.e. Kashmir, Palestine, Afghanistan and Iraq besides praying for the honour and dignity of the Islamic World and for the integrity and solidarity of motherland Pakistan.
Meanwhile, TNFJ Committee has been formed to organize programmes for the International Hafta Ehad-o-Paiman. Dr. S.M. Rizvi has been nominated as Convener and Muhammad Abbas Baloch as Secretary of this Committee.
RAWALPINDI, February 14: The programmes of Hafta-e-Aza (Week of Mourning) announced by Quaid-i-Millat-i-Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi in connection with the Wisal of Khatmi Martabat (SAAW) and Shahadat of Hazrat Imam Hassan Mujtaba (A.S.) concluded on Sunday Safar 29 with honour and respect.
Majalis-e-Aza and Matmi processions were taken out on this occasion. The Quaid-i-Millat Jafariya Agha Moosavi took part in the main Matmi procession taken out from People’s Colony Rawalpindi under the auspices of Syed Nawab Shah and participated in Matamdari and offered ziarat of Taburrakat.
Talking to the Azadaraan on this occasion, Agha Moosavi said the practical following of Seerat-e-Nabavi and oswah of Hazrat Imam Hassan Mujtaba (A.S.) were need of the hour to get the world rid of terrorism and threat to peace. He said policy of mutual understanding would have to be adopted to root out problems and difficulties by following in the footsteps of the pious religious leaders (Hadis).
He expressed concern that at present motherland Pakistan was confronted with internal and external threats; incidents of murder, arson, terrorism, and suicide attacks have become the order of the day; incidents of target killings in Karachi and other cities have made the life of people difficult; and every patriotic person condemns this oppression and brutality.
Strongly condemning blast that took place at the central chowk in Dadu, the TNFJ chief said our perpetual enemy desires to destabilize the country by creating unrest and anarchy in the country. Therefore, he added, all powers should come out of the shackle of personal and party interest and work in the larger interest of the country and the nation so as to thwart the conspiracies of the enemies of the religion and motherland and increase the honour of the motherland.
He said had the government ensured effective implementation of the Anti-Terrorism Act and tightened noose around the banned groups, the terrorism could have been controlled to some extent but, he added, the rulers and politicians were engaged in war of their survival.
He said the country could not afford extraordinary situation owing to present situation, therefore, he added, all State institutions should perform their duty in line with the Constitution and do not exceed the limit of their powers. Otherwise, he said, democracy would land in danger for which the rulers and politicians would be equally responsible.
The TNFJ chief made it clear that Ayyam-e-Aza programmes would continue till 8th Rabiul Awwal after which all Muslims will pay homage in Bargah-e-Risalat without any discrimination on 12th Rabiul Awwal by observing Milad-un-Nabi.
He demanded from the government to make fool-proof security arrangements while people should themselves remain fully alert and keep an eye on the enemy. He said the Paighambar-e-Islam (SAAW) changed the whole world through his preaching spread over 23 years and guided the humanity with Allah’s judicial system and ultimately came the Ayah-e-wilayat saying that today religion has been completed. He said Imam Hassan Mujtaba (A.S.) by following in the footsteps of his grandfather Muhammad (SAAW) gave priority to peace over war. The whole world could be turned into a hub of peace by following the seerat and teachings of Khanwada-e-Risalat.
No grief is greater than that of Rasool (SAAW) and Aal-e-Rasool (A.S.) therefore, no protest or mourning will be observed except Azadari till 8th Rabiul Awwal; Moosavi announces to observe “International Hafta-e-Aza” from 23-29 Safar in connection with the Wisaal of the Khatmi Martabat (SAAW) and Shahadat of Nawasa-e-Rasool Hazrat Imam Hassan Mujtaba (A.S.).
RAWALPINDI, February 6: The Quaid-i-Millat Jafariya, Pakistan, Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi has said that no grief is greater than that of Rasool (SAAW) and Aal-e-Rasool (A.S.) therefore, no protest or mourning will be observed except Azadari till 8th Rabiul Awwal. This was stated by him while announcing to observe “International Hafta-e-Aza” from 23-29 Safar in connection with the Wisaal of the Khatmi Martabat (SAAW) and Shahadat of Nawasa-e-Rasool Hazrat Imam Hassan Mujtaba (A.S.). He said today every city of Pakistan is grieved owing to colonial aggression and the satanic forces have not even spared the holiest month of Muharramul Haram and then hit the bus of Azadaran following by bomb blast at Jinnah Hospital in Karachi on the day of Chehlum that is a heinous conspiracy not only against Pakistan but also against the religion and Shariat. He said as Khanwada-e-Ahle Bait (A.S.) are defenders of Shariat and mankind, their followers are being targeted from Karbala to Karachi.
Agha Moosavi said we, by following in the foot-steps of Khanwada-e-Ahle Bait (A.S.), want to prove that we can neither be threatened with the nefarious tactics of suicide attacks or blasts nor can be diverted from the right path. We want to declare that even we are cut into pieces and these pieces are burnt into ashes spread into the air, the every particle of this ash would raise the voice of Labbaik Ya Hussain (A.S.), he added. He said the Khanwada-e-Rasool (A.S.) presented exemplary sacrifices for the humanity, religion and Shariat and if we offer our lives in way of Hussainiyyat, it would be a blessing for us. We give priority to the Shuhada of Khanwada-e-Risalat (A.S.) over our deaths and Shahadat, and observe only their grief from 1st Muharram to 8th Rabiul Awwal because there is a saying of the Masoom (A.S.) that our followers are those who are happy in our happiness and are grieved in our grief. Only those are the Azadars of Hussain (A.S.) and devotees of Rasool (SAAW) who follow this path, he added.
The TNFJ chief said 28th Safar is commensurate with the grief of Paighambar-e-Islam who confronted with evil forces for 23 years after remaining silent for 40 years. As many as 104 wars were inflicted on him but he never adopted the path of aggression and made it clear on his opponents that he would not hesitate in saying Kalma-e-Haq come what may. The Paighambar-e-Islam (SAAW), through his good moral and good seerat proved that he is the preacher of Islam, peace and tranquillity and hates war, conflict, riot and hatred, he said adding that by signing Sulah-e-Hudaibia, he declared on the world that Islam gives priority to peace over all matters. He said the Paighambar-e-Islam (SAAW) was not a student of any school, college, university or a jamia, he used to utilize the Godly power in connection with his preaching. He stayed with faith in Allah only and began his work alone and shattered irrelevant customs, ignorance, biases and brutality within a small period of 23 years.
Agha Moosavi said that at the time of his Wisaal, he as gift to Muslim Ummah said: “I am leaving two invaluable things amongst you; one is the Kitaab allah and the other is my Itrat i.e. Ahle Bait (A.S.). If you followed both, I say with responsibility that you will never lose the right path”. He said Rasool (SAAW) does not utter any word without Wahi or Ilhaam but it is tragic that the Muslim Ummah avoided to utilize the gift given by the Paighambar-e-Islam (SAAW) as a result of which the whole Muslim Ummah is licking her wounds today. He said instead of following the instruction of the Holy Prophet (SAAW), the Muslim Ummah carried out oppression against Ahle Bait (A.S.) to the extent that even the history is ashamed of that attitude. He said Nawasa-e-Rasool Hazrat Imam Hassan (A.S.) is also amongst those who suffered that oppression. He said there is a saying of the Rasool (SAAW) that goes: “Hassan (A.S.) and Hussain (A.S.) are Sardars of heaven”. Another place, he said: “Hassan (A.S.) and Hussain (A.S.) are Imam, whether they stay or make peace i.e. sit down is their choice”. He said Imam Hassan (A.S.) made peace in his era by following Sulah-e-Hudaibia signed by his grandfather (SAAW) that unveiled the dangerous conspiracy of Ummavi Jirga and their enmity with Islam came in the open as the opponent of Imam Hassan (A.S.) himself uttered after the peace deal: “Oh, people of Iraq. By God! I was not fighting for Nimaz, fasting, zakat, Haj rather my only objective was to achieve power and Allah has succeeded in achieving the same”.
The Quaid-i-Millat Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi presenting condolences to the devotees of Risalat (SAAW) and Imamat (A.S.) prayed for giving us courage to follow the spiritual and Illahi commandments of these holy personalities. He appealed the Islamian-e-Pakistan to organize religious functions, Majalis and take out processions giving practical proof of their devotion to the Rasool (SAAW) and Ahle Bait (A.S.).
Meanwhile, a Central Committee of the TNFJ has been formed to organize programmes for International Hafta-e-Aza. Dr. S.M. Rizvi has been nominated Convener and Salman Haideri as Secretary of this Committee.
RAWALPINDI, February 5: The Chehlum of Nawasa-e-Rasool Hazrat Imam Hussain (A.S.) and his 72 faithful companions was observed with religious and national spirit, devotion and respect throughout the country Friday who sacrificed for survival of religion and Shariat and to give eternal lease of life to high values of humanity.
Majalis Arbaeen-e-Hussaini were held and Zuljinah, Alam and Tazia processions were taken out in all big or small cities and towns on this occasion.
In Rawalpindi, main Chehlum procession was taken out from Imambargah Col. Maqbool Hussain and Imambargah Hifazat Ali Shah Bohar Bazar. Zuljinah procession taken out from Imambargah Ashiq Hussain Teli Mohallah merged into the main procession. Mourners of Imam Hussain (A.S.) performed Zanjeer-Zani and presented ‘Pursa’ of the Imam Aali Muqam (A.S.) to the Holy Prophet (SAW) on this occasion.
The Quaid-i-Millat Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi participated in the procession, offered Ziarat of the taburrakaat and performed Matamdari.
Agha Moosavi answering a question from newsmen on this occasion said that solution to all problems faced by the Muslim Ummah lay in adopting the path of Nawasa-e-Rasool (A.S.) that is commensurate with Mazloomiyyat.
Answering another question regarding Dr. Afia Siddiqui, he said it is an insult for the whole humanity that those who raise slogans for freedom of Kashmir and Palestine could not get a Pakistani daughter released. Seeking justice from America is like appointing a murderer as a judge.
He said today Arbaeen-e-Hussaini is being observed all over the world and Kashmir and Palestine could only get freedom when we adopt the principles of these pious personalities.
He said the Momin (believer) is not afraid of anyone and it should be kept in mind that we are followers of Ali Ibne Abi Talib (A.S.) a saying of whom goes: We plunge over death or death plunges over us, we love death that much that not even a infant has with the mother’s milk.
He said the live nations arrange for their security themselves, taking out procession is the basic right of everyone and staging protest is the Sunnah of Rasool (SAAW) and Azadari-e-Hussain is the eternal protest of the oppressed against oppression and brutality and it would continue till the restoration of justice and fair-play.
He said the Day of Solidarity with Kashmir is observed without any spirit and one should keep in mind that Kashmir could only be achieved through Haideri power and Hussaini spirit.
The participants of the procession carried out Zanjeer-Zani and Qama-Zani in Trunk Bazar, Habib Bank Chowk and turned into a big rally after reaching Fawwara Chowk where addressing the participants, Central Secretary Information of Tehreek Nafaz Fiqh-e-Jafariya, Pakistan, Syed Qamar Haider Zaidi said Arbaeen-e-Hussaini is the memory of Aseeran-e-Karbala’s commitment and courage who shattered the Yazidi courts through their visionary and heart-rending addresses despite being chained so as to highlight the objective of Hussainiyyat. He said inheritor of the Hussain’s (A.S.) blood Imam Zainul Abideen (A.S.) and Sharikatul Hussain Hazrat Syeda Zainab (S.A.) through their khutbaat shattered the Yazidi courts and unveiled the fake Islamic faces of Yazid. Ch. Mushtaq Hussain addressed the gathering on the topic of philosophy of Shahadat.
A resolution presented by the Central MSO President Syed Baqir Hussain Naqvi strongly condemned bomb blasts on the occasion of Chehlum of Syed-us-Shuhada in Karbala & Karachi and said the government has failed in unveiling the culprits of Muzaffarabad incident and Karachi incident and demanded that the real cause behind these incidents of terrorism should be brought forth and real culprits should be given exemplary punishment while innocent people arrested after the Karachi incident should be released forthwith.
The resolution demanded from Chief Minister Punjab Shahbaz Sharif to get the 1st Safar Azadari procession taken out from Imambargah Sakina Binte Hussain, Rehmanpura, Lahore that was earlier stopped despite a decision in its favour from the High Court.
Another resolution strongly condemned ignoring Maktab-e-Tashayyo in State departments.
Another resolution condemned restrictions on the mosque minarets in Switzerland and restrictions on Hejab in France and other western States.
Another resolution demanding the honourable restoration and reconstruction of Jannatul Baqee and Jannatul Moalla lamented that had Muslim kept the honour of Jannatul Baqee and Jannatul Moalla intact then no non-Muslim would have the courage to put the Al-Quds to light and razing the Babri Masjid to ground.
Another resolution criticized that no government personality comes to Azadari processions and said the President, the Prime Minister, the Chief Ministers, Governors and Ministers belong to the whole Pakistan and not to any group, if it is so then they should visit the Azadari processions.
A resolution fully supported all movements for independence including those of Kashmir and Palestine and demanded exodus of occupied forces from Iraq and Afghanistan. The resolution expressed complete solidarity with the Pakistan’s armed forces who are busy in operation to root out terrorism.
The resolution expressed complete faith in the leadership of Quaid-i-Millat Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi and reiterated resolve to offer any sacrifice for the achievement of pious targets.
Later, participants of the main Chehlum procession performed historic Zanjeer-Zani in Raja Bazar. Zuljinah processions taken out from Imambargah Kashmirian Tyre Bazar and Darbar Shah Chan Chiragh also merged into the main procession at Purana Qila.
The main Chehlum procession terminated at Imambargah Qadeem after passing through Jamia Masjid Road and Imambara Chowk. The participants of Zuljinah processions taken out from Imambargah Yadgar-e-Hussain Satellite Town and Imambargah Baltistania Angatpura performed Zanjeer-Zani at Banni Chowk. Both these processions terminated after reaching Imambargah Qadeem.
Mukhtar Students Organisation installed Markazi Azadari Camp at Fawwara Chowk during the main Chehlum procession where arrangements for Sabeel-e-Hussaini were especially made.
Volunteers of Ibrahim Scouts, Mukhtar Force, Civil Defence, office-bearers of District Azadari Committee of the TNFJ led by Convener Alhaj Ghulam Murtaza Chauhan, officials of the District Administration and a heavy contingent of police remained with the procession throughout.
RAWALPINDI, February 5: The Quaid-i-Millat Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi has strongly condemned bomb blasts on the bus of Azadaran and later on the gate of Jinnah Hospital on the occasion of Chehlum Shuhada-e-Karbala in Karachi. Terming the incidents incapability of the government in providing protection to the people he said the failed rulers have no justification to remain in power. In a statement issued from the headquarters of the Maktab-e-Tashayyo, he said our combined enemy does not desire to see Pakistan prosper and wants to trample the economic jugular vein of Pakistan under a well thought-out conspiracy.
Agha Moosavi said those who target the Ashoora, Chehlum and Milad-un-Nabi processions live in fools’ paradise and they should be aware that we had created Pakistan jointly and will defend it jointly also and no power in world could stop us from doing so. He said anyone who declares terrorism on the occasion of Ashoora and Chehlum of Shuhada-e-Karbala a Maktabi conflict, is not Sunni, Shia, Barelvi, Deobandi, or Ahle Hadees rather agent of the satanic powers. He said till 8th Rabiul Awwal only Gham-e-Hussain is observed therefore priority should be given to Azadari over all other matters. He said we would never allow murdering Azadari even if we all are murdered.
The TNFJ chief said if the government is sincere in restoring peace then as a first step, it should break the network of 26 banned groups throughout the country including Karachi and check these elements who have been allowed by the government and the opposition to operate openly, under the Anti-Terrorism Act. Terrorism could not be rooted out unless the safe abodes of terrorists are destructed, he added. He said today our perpetual enemy is accusing us of Bombay blasts while she is committing naked aggression and terrorism against Pakistan for more that a quarter century. Therefore, the government should raise this issue at the level of United Nations and the ICC, he added.
The Quaid-i-Millat Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi said that we had demanded from the Chief Justice to take suo moto notice of the Ashoora incident and set up an Enquiry Board but not taking any step towards this direction provides food for thought. He said hesitation on the part of government, opposition and judiciary on the Karachi affairs raise a question mark. He said had the real culprits were arrested after setting up the Enquiry Board then the enemy would not have succeeded in carrying out these tragic activities on the occasion of Chehlum. He lamented that all energy is being wasted to overcome each other. He said making appeals to the people to remain peaceful is useless as they are already peaceful. However, the government should control the terrorists and their patrons, he added. He said our enemy is reaping the benefit of political entangling going on in Karachi. If the government, opposition and leaders have love for Islam and Pakistan then they should ponder over saving Pakistan instead of saving themselves, he concluded.
RAWALPINDI, February 4: The Quaid-i-Millat Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi has said that Yazidiyyat, colonialism and Zionism are afraid of Hussainiyyat. This was stated by him in a special message on the occasion of Arbaeen-e-Hussaini (Chehlum of Shuhada-e-Karbala) that is being observed throughout the country on Friday with religious spirit, devotion and respect. He said 20th Safar is the greatest day of those who kissed Shahadat in way of Allah in Karbala and the great sacrifices of Nawasa-e-Rasool (A.S.) and his 72 diehard near and dear ones. He said the Shuhada-e-Karbala not only led the supporters of freedom and human rights to the right path but also created example for those freedom fighters who are struggling in Kashmir, Palestine, Lebanon, Iraq, Afghanistan and elsewhere. That right path is the one that leads to rooting out Taghooti forces, and Zionist and colonial oppression and get them rid of for ever by fluttering the flag of justice and fair-play high and saving the whole humanity.
Agha Moosavi said Hazrat Zainab Binte Ali (S.A.) and Imam Zainul Abideen (A.S.) fulfilled their responsibilities in a manner that has made the Karbala incident a memorable event, diverted the history and rooted out tyranny and Yazidiyyat. He said Hazrat Zainab Binte Ali (S.A.) by delivering khutba in the court of Yazid warned that Yazid, you are under the impression that you have closed the earth and the sky on us, made us prisoners, made us wander city after city and you are thinking that you have become near to Allah, and you have become proud and walks in proudness and go out of control on watching your government and its affairs. Hazrat Zainab (S.A.) concluded her khutba on these words: By God, you cannot pull out us from hearts, cannot wipe out Wahi and Ilhaam, cannot reach our status, and cannot wash out the spot of oppression and brutality that has been affixed on you. No word of your could be trusted, time of your rule is short, soon you and your supporters will be humiliated. At this point, when Yazid saw that feelings of those in the court are being changed, he ordered to take the Ahle Bait Athaar (A.S.) back in the gaol.
The TNFJ chief said that the khutba of Hazrat Zainab (S.A.) created revolution. The cries of Ahle Bait Athaar (A.S.) echoed in the city of Shaam and the people of Shaam also started crying. Women of Yazid and Aal-e-Sufyaan threw out their ornaments and took up mourning dress. Yazid freed the Ahle Haram and sent them to Madina. When Hazrat Zainab reached Karbala on 20th Safar along with Aseeran-e-Karbala she let her fall on Hussain’s (A.S.) grave and cried so profusely that she became unconscious.
The Quaid-i-Millat Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi presenting condolences to the supporters of oppressed people, religion and Shariat; mourners and Azadars; and the followers of Zainab (S.A.) and Zainul Abideen (A.S.) resolved not to forget the greatest sacrifices of the Shuhada-e-Karbala and Aseeran Ahle Haram. He said Azadari of Imam Mazloom (A.S.) is the live example which we perform as a duty and a responsibility and will let anybody cause any harm to it.
ISLAMABAD, February 3: Syed Shujaat Ali Bokhari, Convener, Markazi Muharram Committee Azadari Cell, Tehreek Nafaz Fiqh-e-Jafariya Pakistan has demanded from the government to ensure fool-proof security during Matmi processions on the occasion of Chehlum of Shuhada-e-Karbala throughout the country similar to the Ashoora while media should give full coverage to the country-wide procession on Chehlum.
This was stated by him while addressing a Press Conference at National Press Club Islamabad. He was accompanied by Syed Bu Ali Mehdi, Maj. (Retd) Baqir Bokhari, Allama Basharat Imami, Allama Guftar Sadiqi and others. He said Islam preaches peace, tranquillity, unity and brotherhood and condemns all types of aggression and biases. He said bias means supporting the oppression and brutality of your own men. Islam considers those its enemies who promote biases and those who support the same while it always supports the oppressed, he added.
Syed Shujaat Ali Bokhari said that Chehlum of Mazloom Nawasa-e-Rasool Hazrat Imam Hussain (A.S.) is being observed from today till 20th Safar Al-Muzaffar throughout the country without any discrimination and with honour and respect because Hussain (A.S.) belongs to all and everyone belongs to Hussain (A.S.). He said Muharramul Haram passed peacefully with some exceptions throughout the country. He said some incidents took place in Muzaffarabad, Azad Kashmir on 9th Muharram and in Karachi on Youm-e-Ashoora. The attack on Ashoora procession was attack on Pakistan and was the work of those elements who see Pakistan as a mole in their eyes, he said adding that we, however, are busy in Chehlum of Shuhada-e-Karbala Arbaeen-e-Hussain and till 8th Rabiul Awwal the situation would remain the same. He said Pakistan is very dear to them as it carries Nazria-e-Asaasi Islam. He said the government should have rooted out terrorism with an iron hand but she failed to unveil the culprits of Muzaffarabad and Ashoora incidents. Therefore, he said, we strongly demand from the powers that be to follow the demand of Quaid-i-Millat Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi to unveil the conspiracy behind these incidents and give exemplary punishment to the real culprits while the affected people of Karachi incident should be given compensation by following the norms of justice and fair-play. He said those who are creating hurdles in unveiling the elements behind these incidents should be unveil while innocent people arrested after the Karachi incident should be released forthwith. He also called upon the government to take strict notice of target killings in Karachi.
Syed Shujaat Bokhari demanded from the Punjab Government to implement and decision of the High Court and get the 1st Safar procession out with honour and respect from Imambargah Sakina Binte Al-Hussain, Rehmanpura, Lahore. He appealed all patriotic countrymen to organize Majalis-e-Aza and take out Azadari processions in peace by following the Code of Azadari announced by the Quaid-i-Millat Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi and do not lend ear to any rumour but give priority to Azadari over all other matters. He said the government should avoid creating fear and harassment rather the Administration should be directed to keep in contact with the TNFJ Markazi Muharram Committee Azadari Cell so as to protect the motherland from international and external conspiracies.
Commenting on the promotion of ‘Aman ki Asha’ he said the government should make it clear on India to stop interference in Pakistan, resolve water issue, understand Kashmir issue and respect the United Nations Resolutions keeping the desire of Kashmiris. He said Pakistan should lodge protest against those States whose agencies are active in Pakistan while the foreigners residing in Pakistan illegally should be sent back to their respective countries. He said the organizations working with different names should be driven out while banned organizations should be stopped from working with new names. Media should discourage these elements while the government and the opposition should get themselves rid of them with courage. He said purification of the Administration was also the need of the hour but it should be done by fulfilling the norms of justice and fair-play, drone attacks should be stopped and the government should get rid of the colonial chief.
Syed Shujaat Ali Bokhari made it clear that rooting out terrorism was their foremost goal and following the spirit of Hussainiyyat practically to condemn biases is the need of the hour. He said on the occasion of Arbaeen-e-Hussaini it is out obligation to prove ourselves true Muslim through our character and deeds and tell the international colonial powers and their agents that they cannot create rift amongst because the whole nation would thwart their conspiracies and proof itself a concrete wall against them.
