ISLAMABAD, December 13: The general secretary of the Tehreek Nafaz e Fiqh e Jafariya, Syed Mazhar Ali Shah Advocate condemned the loss of innocent lives in the incidents of target killings in Sarki Road Quetta, Shahrae Iqbal and Jinnah Road and the continuous terrorism in Karachi and consider them a proof of the government failure. While talking to the delegation in Almurtaza Islamabad he said that until the Muslim rulers stop begging from the colonial powers, the Islamic world will be the target of oppression, barbarity and terrorism therefore the Muslim rulers will have to get freedom from the clutches of the colonial powers and will have to uphold the teachings of the Holy Quran and the pious family of the Holy Prophet (PBUT).
Syed Mazhar Ali Shah said that what ever is happening in the motherland is all being carried out by the colonial powers and their stooges; there is no days go by without target killings and terrorism in Quetta and Karachi; the public is fearing for their safety as no one cares for them. He expressed his grave grief over the fact that the rulers and the politicians are only working for their interests so much so that they even put the dignity and honour of the motherland on stake and have no care for the public.
The secretary general of the TNFJ made it clear that until the rulers deal the banned terrorists groups with iron hand and until their activities with new identities and joining of the political alliances are not restricted, the dream of peace in the motherland cannot come true. He emphasized on all the mourners of Imam Hussain (PBUH) to give priority to Azadari over everything else and should keep an eye on the miscreants. He demanded from the government to fulfil its responsibility of providing safety to the public and their properties. Mazhar Ali Shah made it clear that Pakistan came into being to exist therefore God willingly it will exist and all the citizens of Pakistan while displaying unity and brotherhood will wrath the conspiracies of the religion and the motherland. On this occasion the delegation reiterate their vow to spare no sacrifice for the rights of the Maktab e Tasheyyo and for the propagation of mission of Wala O Aza on the call of the Quaid e Millat e Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi.
RAWALPINDI, December 11: The International Ashra Beemar-e-Karbala announced by Quaid-i-Millat Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi concluded here Tuesday. Majalis-e-Aza were organised followed by Taboot processions throughout the country. A Taboot procession was taken out from Imambargah ZainulAbideen under the auspices of Anjuman Faiz-e-Punjtan in which the Quaid-i-Millat Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi participated especially. The procession terminated after reaching Ali Masjid.
Earlier, Allama Ijaz Hussain Madras addressing the Majlis-e-Aza at Imambargah Zainul Abideen, said Hazrat ZainulAbideen (A.S.) through this character and deed in the darkest era of oppression and brutality enlightened the religion, Shariat and Hussainiyyat. He said osswa-e-Sajjadia is the beacon of light for the oppressed and have-nots the world over. MaulanaIjlalHaider Al-Haideri in his address on the occasion said that Imam Ali Ibn Al-Hussain (A.S.) is the eye-witness of the Karbala incident who took over the Dastaar-e-Imamat in the burning tentage and saved the Namoos and dignity of Aal-e-Rasool (A.S.).
A resolution presented by Tanvir Kazmi, Secretary Information, AnjumanFaiz-e-Punjtan was unanimously adopted that reiterated to ensure implementation of the Code of Azadari announced by Quaid-i-Millat Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Moosavifor all programmes till 8thRabiulAwwal.

MajlisBeemar-e-Karbala was held at Jamia Al-Murtaza G-9/4 under the auspices of Anjuman Dukhtran-e-Islam. Prof. Gohar Fatima addressed, Sara Jabeen recited Marsia while Syeda Salma Naqvi conducted the proceedings. Later Matamdari was also performed. Allama Syed QamarHaider Zaidi addressing a Majlisorganised by Khateeb Shah Piyara Allama Syed Matloob Hussain Taqi at DarbarSakhi Shah PiyaraChaurHarpal said that Beemar-e-Karbala Hazrat Imam ZainulAbideen (A.S.) bore all difficulties but taught a lesson to the world how to confront the Yazidi conspiracies. He said there is need to follow the Asswah of Beemar-e-Karbala at present. Zakir Ghazanfar Abbas Gondal, ZakirLiaquat Hussain Samandwana, Zakir Syed Saghir Hussain Kazmi, and Syed Aun Abbas Kazmi also addressed the Majlis.
A resolution adopted on the occasion strongly condemned terrorism and target killings carried out in Dhoke Syedan, Dera Ismail Khan and Karachi and said whatever line of action was given by the Shuhada Committee will be fully implemented. The resolution vowed to follow to Code of Azadari given by the Quaid-i-MillatJafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi with devotion and respect till 8thRabiulAwwal. The Taboot procession later terminated at DarbarAaliaSakhi Shah PiyayaKazmi after marching through the designated route.
Taboot procession was also taken out from MarkaziImam bargah Qasr-e-Imam Musa Kazim under the auspices of Zakir Syed Zamir Hussain Kazmi. At Qasr-e-Abu Talib,TabootBeemar-e-Karbala was taken out after the Majlis-e-Azaorganised by mother of Azmat Hussain Naqvi. ZakiraTahiraBilquees addressed the Majlis.
RAWALPINDI, December 10: The Quaid-i-Millat Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi has said that Milad-e-Mustafa and Azadari Syed-us-Shuhada are the strong and most effective protest against blasphemy that will be kept running come what may. We will give priority to Gham-e-Hussain till 8th Rabiul Awwal over all other matters and will announce our political policy for general election after that. This was stated by him while announcing to observe “Ashra Shaheeda-e-Zindaan” from Muhaaram 27 to Safar-ul-Muzaffar 6 in connection with the Shahadat of minor Aseera-e-Karbala Hazrat Sakina Binte Hussain (S.A.). He said the echoes of Farzand-e-Rasool Hussain Ibne Ali that Halal-e-Muhammad will remain Halal and Haram-e-Muhammad will remain Haram till the Day of Judgement. Neither any power on earth, government or Parliament could change the Datoor-e-Muhammadi nor anyone will be allowed to do so in future, he added.
Agha Moosavi called upon the rulers and the politicians that had they spent their energy for the survival and development of Pakistan then the nation would not have to see these days today. He said how indifferent these elections are that Drone attacks are going on, suicide and target killings are continuing unabated, incidents of kidnapping for ransom are on the rise, no place from a small town to the provincial capitals and even Islamabad are no more safe, and every citizen is injured. He said the powers that be and politics not only trampled the honour and dignity of Muharram rather that they did not take care of human dignity. He said dozens of Shahadat were reported in incidents of terrorism in Balochistan, Quetta, Sindh, Karachi, Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa and Dera Ismail Khan. No one took care of the bereaved families of Shuhada of Dhoke Syedan Rawalpindi and the injured of that incident were still passing tough time in hospitals.
The TNFJ chief said that how can the rulers who failed in providing protection to people could defend Pakistan. He said tyranny does not come only in shape of khaki rather presently the tyrant democracy was utilizing tyranny in the outfit of democracy, terrorists were roaming about freely while rulers and politicians were involved in visits, public meetings and rallies. He appealed them to think about turning Pakistan into Amnistan, resolve problems of the people, root out terrorism, fix the terrorists, and compensate the bereaved families of Shuhada. He said the people should themselves remain alert and do not try the already tired rulers and politicians as doing is ignorance.
Agha Moosavi appealed the followers of Rasool (SAAW), Aal-e-Rasool (A.S.), pious Sahaba Kubaar (R.A.) to give priority to Gham-e-Hussain over all other matters because Azadari is the eternal protest against Yazidiyyat in every era. He said the biggest blasphemy of the human history was committed in the plains of Karbala and in the streets and courts where the daughters and daughters-in-law of the Rasool (SAAW) were made to walk. He said the name of Hazrat Sakina (S.A.) was Fatima and Imam Hussain (A.S.) used to call her Sakina. When this Masooma (A.S.) accompanied her father from Madina for Karbala, her age was 3 years, 7 months and 4 days. He said the dignity of Hazrat Sakina Binte Hussain (S.A.) can be gauged from the fact Allah love the Khatmur Rusl (SAAW) the most and Mustafa (SAAW) loved Hussain (A.S.) the most and Hussain (A.S.) loved Sakina Binte Hussain (S.A.) the most. This love is not based on relationship but on the high character because after the Shahadat-e-Hussain, Hazrat Sakina (S.A.) all difficulties with bravery and kissed Shahadat in Zindaan-e-Shaam.
The Quaid-i-Millat Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi said the exemplary character of Hazrat Sakina Binte Hussain (S.A.) is the beacon of light for minors the world over. He appealed all and sundry to pay homage to Masooma-e-Karbala Hazrat Sakina (S.A.) during the Ashra Shaheeda-e-Zindaan through Majalis-e-Aza, Matamdari and announce their commitment and support to the oppressed people of Kashmir, Palestine, Afghanistan and Iraq by expressing hatred against oppression and brutality and support to the oppressed.
Meanwhile, a TNFJ central committee has been formed to organise programmes of the Ashra Shaheeda-e-Zindaan. Prof. Sughra Malik has been nominated as convener, Sardar Begum as deputy convener, Apa Syeda Hussain as secretary while Syeda Abeera Zaidi and Apa Syeda Lawa Zainab will assist them.
President Zardari will stand responsible in front of Khaton e Janat Hazrat Fatima Zahra (PBUH) for the policy he has adopted; Agha Moosavi addresses the office bearers of the Muharram Committee Azadari Cell
RAWALPINDI, December 9: The Quaid-i-Millat Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi has said that the era of Zia is the darkest period in the history of Pakistan; the nation and the country are still confronted with the bloodshed given as a gift of terrorism by him; some countries are fighting the war of their own interest on Pakistani soil;
If the rulers had made internal and foreign policies in the national interest then we would not have seen these black days; the alliances made with the banned organisations are further dividing the nation; the Chief Justice must listen to the hue and cry of the orphaned children and women and should take the notice of the terrorism; those rulers who went to see a child abroad did not bother to visit the place a few kilometres away from the Presidency where ten minor children fell victim to terrorism; the federal government which announced millions in reward so that the culprits behind the conspircay against an anchor person can be brought to justice, their cold shoulder attitude to the victims of the Dhoke Syedan incident poses a question; President Zardari will stand responsible in front of Khaton e Janat Hazrat Fatima Zahra (PBUH) for the policy he has adopted. The dignity of Muharram is being trampled upon. Mourning is being observed in the family of the Holy Prophet (PBUT); how could those who are busy in political wrangling during the days of Aza-e-Hussaini face the Holy Prophet (PBUH & HHP). The candidates and their parties should avoid contacting Tehreek Nafaz Fiqh-e-Jafariya during the Ayyam-e-Aza; the maktab e Tasheyyo will give a policy about elections after 8th of Rabiul Awwal; a faithful should not be beaten with the same stick twice; announcement of presenting another blasphemous movie in Belgium is a challenge to the dignity of the pro western Muslim rulers; the only way out to thwart the satanic powers who are committing blasphemy is the Muslim unity from the banks of Neil to Kashghar; the martyrdom of Shia-Sunni brethren during Azadari in Dera Ismail Khan and Rawalpindi, their combined funerals and graves next to each others in Ganj-e-Shahidaan are a slap in the face of those who cry hoarse of sectarian strife; Imam Zainul Abideen (PBUH) defeated brutality with patience and disseminated the teachings of the Holy Prophet (PBUH & HHP) through ‘Zaboor of supplications’.
These views were expressed by him while addressing to the office-bearers of the TNFJ Muharram Committee Azadari Cell. The TNFJ Secretary General, Syed Mazhar Ali Shah Advocate and Convener of Muharram Committee Azadari Cell, Syed Shujaat Ali Bokhari were also present on the occasion.
Agha Moosavi said Pakistan is in the target of the colonial powers and their agents. Martial Law after Martial Law, incapability of the politicians, duplicy and their hippocratic attitude has derailed the motherland from its real target as a result of which Pakistan was divided into two countries. The biggest punishment Pakistan got was in shape of Zia’s tyranny and after 9/11 the anti-Pakistan forces put the country on the front-line of terrorism and today no city, town, village, provincial or central metropolis is safe from it. He said even in the present era of democracy corruption, loot, plunder, drone attacks and target killings were rife; what for, President Zardari was expressing happiness; the rulers and the politicians are crying hoarse for one thing or the other but there is no one to take care of the people.
The TNFJ chief expressed concern that blasphemy is being committed regularly and now Belgium is going to present a blasphemous movie that is a challenge for the westernized Muslim rulers. He asked where are the countries who consider themselves champions of Islam, where is the Arab League and the OIC? He said had the Muslim states filed case in the International Court of Justice against publication of blasphemous images, had the law framed in the United Nations, then neither such images would have been published in Denmark, Norway and France nor blasphemous movies were produced in Holland and America and today Belgium would not have the courage to announce production of such a movie either. The Muslims are in deep slumber on the humiliation of a personality that is the most honourable after Almighty Allah. This situation also provides food for thought to those terrorists who are shedding blood of innocent Muslims with their own hands, are targeting innocents, turning women into widows and making children orphan. He lamented that banned terrorist outfits are being honoured by including them in the political alliances. He said all religious powers and Masalik should keep in mind that satanic powers are utilizing all their energy against the Islamic World therefore they should avoid taking such steps that may strengthen the enemy.
Agha Syed hamid Ali Shah Moosavi said that before the begnning of Maharum ul Harram so much fear was spread as if sky is going to fall down or earth is going to sunk and together with this, terrorists were left free to roam about due to which the incident of Dhoke Syedan took place and in Dera Ismail Khan, the innocent mourners of Imam Hussain were drench in their own blood. The provincial governments help to the victims was meagre but the federal government and its ministers did not even bother to take notice of these heinous crimes as if they are not going to die one day. The whole Pakistan is portraying the image of jungle; there is no rule of law in the motherland; killings of innocent people is the order of the day; the public is tired of lifting the corpses of their loved ones; dozens of groups were declared terrorists but they are operating with new alliances. The rulers are only interested in their power and to secure their power further, are throwing salt on the woundes of the public.
Agha Moosavi expressed his grave concern that Muharram which is considered sacred month but the rulers, the politicians and the media are all destroying its sanctity; Muharram is not the name of Ashura rather it is from 1st of Muharrm till 8th of Rabiul Awwal are the days to grief the grandson of the Holy Prophet, Imam Hussain (PBUH). He made a demand that the terorists must be handled with iron hand, the rulers are aware of the safe heavens of the terrorists; the seed of bloodshed sawn by Zia is being harvested by the whole nation; the chief justice who take notice of everything should also take notice of terrorism. He asked the public to express their hatred towards terrorists elements which are busy with new identities so much so that they are using the names of the established schools of thought. He made it clear that a terrorist keeps no Maslak or a religion, he is only a terrorist and should only be dealt in a same context. Foreign aid being received by some groups may be checked and protest should be lodged with those countries who are involved in patronizing parties involved in terrorism. The accounts of religious and political parties should be checked and in this connection Tehreek Nafaz Fiqh-e-Jafariya presents itself first. He said the rulers and the politicians should keep in mind that sacrifices rendered by the Maktab-e-Tasheyo in creating, decorating Pakistan and in increasing its dignity are not less than others. There are 70 million Shias in the population of 180 million in Pakistan. After 8th of Rabiul Awwal, election policy should be given to the Shia nation because the faithful never get beaten by the same stick twice.
Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi said that Pakistan was created by Shias and Sunnis jointly and they will also save it jointly. Whether it is Dhoke Syedan Rawalpindi or Dera Ismail Khan during the Azadari of Syed-us-Shuhada, Ahle Sunnat brethren were not behind in kissing martyrdom along with Ahle Tasheyyo. Their graves were made at the same place in Dhoke Syedan’s Ganj-e-Shaheedan and the single Imam led the funeral prayers proving they live and die together. This situation is a slap in the face of those cry hoarse of sectarian conflict in Pakistan.
The Quaid-i-Millat Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi made it clear that Shias and Sunnis will live and die together for Islam and Pakistan and will not allow any power to create differences in Shia-Sunni unity. He said the rallies, protest calls and strikes during the days of Gham-e-Hussain are enmity with the nation and the country. He said Azadari is the effective tool of protest against all types of oppression and anyone who longs for protest should join Azadari that will continue till the appearance of Imam Mahdi (PBUH)..
ISLAMABAD, November 28: Syed Mazhar Ali Shah Advocate, Secretary General of Tehreek Nafaz Fiqh-e-Jafariya Pakistan has announced to observe ‘International Ashra Beemar-e-Karbala’ from 15-25 Muharramul Haram in connection with the Shahadat of Syed-us-Sajideen Hazrat Imam Zainul Abideen (A.S.) on the call of Quaid-i-Millat Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi. Addressing the office-bearers of TNFJ Federal Council Muharram Committee Azadari Cell he expressed satisfaction over the peaceful Ashra-e-Muharram and said the government had made good steps as per its capacity. However, he said, despite some tragic incidents in Dera Ismail Khan, Karachi, Dhoke Syedan Rawalpindi and some other places, Azadars by following the Code of Azadari issued from the Markaz-e-Tashih, displayed wisdom and patience declaring upon the world that we desire peace and tranquillity because Islam preaches peace and condemns all types of terrorism.
Mazhar Ali Shah said Muharram is not limited to Ashoora only rather the Azadari programmes continue till 8th Rabiul Awwal, therefore, it is obligatory for the government, opposition, media and all others to keep the sanctity of these days in view and the Muharram Control Rooms established at federal and provincial levels may continue to exist so as to smoothen the holding of Majalis and mourning processions. He expressed grave concern that progress has been made so far in the terrorism incident including that of Dhoke Syedan Rawalpindi that took place during the Ashra-e-Muharram. He demanded immediate arrest and suitable action against the culprits, payment of compensation to the affected and provision of special facilities to the injured undergoing treatment in hospitals.
He called upon the media to highlight the integrity of the motherland and dignity and honour of the Makatib so as to thwart the conspiracies and mischief of the internal and external enemies. He said all satanic powers should keep in mind that we cannot be overcome through threats and blasts because we are the followers of Hussain (A.S.), we can give up everything and can offer any biggest sacrifice but would not allow anyone to cause any harm to Azadari and play with the motherland and its integrity.
Mazhar Ali Shah terming the restrictions on mobile service on Ashoora a temporary solution demanded from the government to ban the activities of the banned groups that are operating with new names in the connivance with the government and the opposition. He said the opposition is under the obligation to fulfil its responsibilities instead of merely polishing their political business.
Meanwhile, the TNFJ committee has been formed to organise programmes for International Ashra Beemar-e-Karbala. Dr. S. Zaman has been nominated as convener while M.D. Haideri will act as its secretary.
RAWALPINDI, November 25: The Day of Ashura, in memory of the grandson of the Holy Prophet, Hazrat Imam Hussain (PBUH) and his 72 diehard companions was observed with traditional religious spirit, devotion and respect throughout the country including Azad Kashmir and Gilgit-Baltistan on Sunday. In Rawalpindi, main procession of Ashura was taken out from Imam Bargah Ashiq Hussain Teli Mohallah, Imam Bargah Col. Maqbool Hussain and Imam Bargah Hifazat Ali Shah Bohar Bazar. On this occasion the mourners of Imam Hussain (PBUH) performed Zanjeer-Zani to express their devotion with Imam Hussain (PBUH). Zuljinah, Alam Mubarik, Taazia, Mehndi Shahzada Qasim (PBUH), Gehwara Masoom Ali Asghar (PBUH), Taboot Imam Aali Muqaam (PBUH) and other taburrakaat (religious artifact) were included in the procession of Ashura.
The Quaid e Millat Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi participated in the procession of Ashura and offered Ziarat of the taburrakaat and performed Matamdari. While talking to the media on this occasion, Agha Moosavi said that Muharram ul Harram is a sacred month; Imam Hussain (PBUH) while sacrificing his life and the lives of his children and dear companions declared that my message of peace is to eliminate oppression and barbarity and for the establishment of peace and harmony, just as, the main objectives of my grandfather Mohammad e Mustafa (PBUH & HHP) was also the same one. He said that during Muharram ul Harram shedding blood, causing mayhem and arson is forbidden therefore Imam Hussain (PBUH) announced that my stand is for the correction of the nation, propagation of good deeds, stopping people from wrong doings and leading them on the path of my grandfather and my father.
Agha Moosavi while replying to a question said that the continued terrorism in the country, target killings, suicide attacks and bomb blast are indeed carried out by those who are not the followers of the Holy Prophet (PBUH & HHP) his holy progeny (PBUHT) and his pious companions (RA) rather they are the enemies of the religion, Sharia and the beloved homeland Pakistan. He said that this grave situation is not new but it started in eighties when a dictator took over the reign of the country, which slowly and gradually turned into target killings and suicide attacks. He said that prior to Muharram ul Harram we contacted those who are in power, in result of which the federal government setup control rooms in federal and provincial levels, which were advised to be in touch with the TNFJ.
While replying to a question related to the security measurements Syed Hamid Moosavi said that this is the first time in the history of the motherland that the mobile service was suspended on this level which is the essential source of communication and was a great cause of distress; this type of measurements can be passing time and temporary solution of the problem but the long time solution is that the terrorists groups which were banned by the governments must be handled with iron hand who are operating with new identities and their members which are involved in terrorism are freed from the courts. He said that if these banned groups are innocent then the restrictions imposed on them should be lifted from them and they can also contact courts for this purpose if they think they are innocent. He said that if SP and DGI of any region are made responsible for the crime committed in their areas due to their negligence then same criteria should be implemented on organizations as well and actions should be taken against those organizations whose members’ involvement is proven in terrorism.
While replying to another question Agha Moosavi said that the government and the opposition must not associate with terrorists and that the media should not provide them coverage. He said that these terrorists groups with their old and new identities are the part of three political alliances, which are set for the election purposes; in reality these terrorists are the need of the government and the opposition.
While replying to the question in regards to the involvement of the external hand in the terrorism, he said that this kind of statement issued by the rulers are not sufficient, but chopping those hands which are involved in terrorism, exposing those countries which are sponsoring terrorism and protesting to the ambassadors of those countries while calling them in to the home office is the responsibility of the government because these countries are fighting their war on our land. He emphasized that in the era of Zia, I said that terrorists have no religion faith or country and they should only be considered terrorist therefore considering the war of the agents of external powers, a war between different schools of thought itself is act of terrorism. He said that the colonial powers take their wanted people out of our country or sometimes our rulers hand them over but our government does not dare to ask them for the same treatment in return. He said that unless priority is given to the dignity and the honor of the pious personality of Islam over everything else, the dream of eradicating terrorism cannot become reality.
The Quaid e Millat e Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi made it clear that Sunni and Shia are two strong hands of Islam which are always united and for the same reason in the incident of Dhoke Syedaan one person from Ahle Sunnat and in the incident of Dera Ismail Khan four persons belonging to Ahle sunnat got martyred.
While replying to a question related to identifying the external hand behind terrorism he said that Yazid ordered to his representative Walid in Madina that Abdullah Ibne Ummar, Abdulah Ibne Zubair and Hussain Ibne Ali (PBUH) must be captured immediately and they should be demanded to pay their allegiance to me and if they refuse, kill them. While replying to the question of allegiance, Imam Hussain (PBUH) said that we are the family of the Holy Prophet (PBUH & HHP), angels used to visit our home, Islam started from us and it will also be completed upon us, while Yazid is liar, consumes alcohol, he is a murderer of innocent people, refuses the concept of revelation from Almighty Allah and considers permissible which is forbidden by Mohammad (PBUH & HHP) and what ever is permitted by Mohammad (PBUH & HHP) he forbids it therefore anyone like me will never pay allegiance to anyone like him. Agha Moosavi said that from very beginning of Islam, two imposing powers in the form of Habeel (PBUH) and Qabeel, Mousa (PBUH) and Pharaoh and Hussain (PBUH) and Yazid are always existed and the followers of the Holy Prophet (PBUH & HHP), his Holy Progeny (PBUT) and his pious companions (RA) never bow down in front of Qabeeli, Farooni and Yazidi forces. Banu Ummayad while using the name of Islam fulfilled their objectives while Banu Abbas caused harm to Islam while using the name of Ahle Bait (PBUT) therefore it is very important for all the religion and the mother loving classes and especially the media that they should first themselves recognize that who are the followers of Imam Hussain (PBUH) and who are those who are following the character of Yazid and then realities should be propagated to the rest.
Aqae Moosavi reiterated his resolve that the bomb blats and act of terrorism in any form cannot deviate us from the path of Hussainiat. Those Martyrs who lost their lives in the incidents of terrorism during days of mourning (Ayyame Azadari) their condolences will be arranged after 8th of Rabi ul Awwal once the day of mourning are concluded.
A large number of mourners engaged themselves in heavy Zanjeer-Zani and Matam-e-Qamah at Bohar Bazar Chowk, Trunk Bazar, and Habib Bank Chowk. The procession turned into a big rally after reaching Fawwara Chowk where addressing the participants, the secretary information of the Tehreek Nafaz Fiqh-e-Jafariya, Pakistan, Syed Qamar Haider Zaidi said the invaluable sacrifice of Imam Aali Muqaam (PBUH) was for the survival of the religion of Islam and humanity. He said that the blood of all the mourners who laid their lives during the incidents of terrorism, including twelve-year-old member of Ibrahim scout Raheel Abbas would not go vain.
The regional secretary of the TNFJ, Abu Nasum Bukhari presented resolutions to the participants of the Ashura procession in which it was emphasized on the Muslim countries that if they really want to defend the honor and dignity of the Holy Prophet (PBUH & HHP) then they themselves while taking care of the honor and dignity of the Holy Prophet (PBUH & HHP) restore the Holy places in Jannat al Baqee and Jannat al Molallah.
In the resolution while condemning the act of terrorism which took place in Quetta and Karachi in the begging of Muharram ul Harram, on 6th Muharram ul Harram in Dhoke Syedaan Rawalpindi and on 9th and 10th Muharram ul Harram in D I Khan, salute all the mourners of Imam Hussain (PBUH) who laid their lives for the propagation of mission of Hussainiat especially Raheel Abbas of Ibrahim Scout and considered their martyrdom a great honor for them and for the whole of the nation. A great concern was expressed over this fact that the federal and provincial government did not announce any compensation for the losses of innocent lives during these incidents; although the Prime minister announced that the government will pay for the treatment of the injured but it is being taken care of by their families.
In the resolution while appreciating the setting up of control rooms in the federal and the provincial level, ignoring of the problems of the mourners by the Punjab government was highly condemned; the administration was also thanked for their co-operation for the matter of Azadari.
In the resolution the government was demanded that it should compensate all the victims of terrorism in Quetta, Karachi, Rawalpindi and Dera Ismail Khan and that it should bring to justice all those terrorists who are involved in committing these atrocities. The government was also demanded to secure all routes leading to the sensitive areas of Parachanar, Gilgit and Baltistan.
In the resolution the cold attitude of some media channels and the newspapers towards peace loving classes including the Tehreek Nafaz e Fiqh e Jafariya was condemned and those who cooperated with them were appreciated.
In the resolution while appreciating the federal and provincial governments for setting up control rooms reminded that our co-operation does not end on 8th Rabiul Awwal but it will continued all year around.

Later, after performing Zanjeer-Zani at Fawwara Chowk, the participants of the main Ashura procession reached Raja Bazar and Purana Qila where Zuljinah processions taken out from Imam Bargah Kashmirian, Imam Bargah Shaheedane Karbala, Tyre Bazar and Darbar Shah Chan Chiragh also merged into the main procession. The main Chehlum procession terminated at Imam Bargah Qadeem after passing through Jamia Masjid Road and Imam Bara Chowk. Mukhtar Students Organization District Rawalpindi had set up Azadari Camp at Fawwara Chowk while Ibrahim Scouts had set up Medical Camps at Habib Bank Chowk, Raja Bazar and Jamia Masjid Road to facilitate the mourners. Office-bearers of divisional and district Muharram committees of the Tehreek Nafaz Fiqh-e-Jafariya and the volunteers of MFP and Ibrahim Scouts remained along with the procession throughout.
RAWALPINDI, November 24: The Quaid e Millat e Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi reiterated that while following the path of Hussainiat no compromise will be made on the Azadari which is bestowed upon us by Imam Zain al Abideen and Syeda Zainab (PBUT) because Azadari holds the key of success for the victory of the oppressed over oppressors and it is also the protector of the religion of Mohammad (PBUH & HHP) in every era. From Kashmir to Gaza all movements of oppressed take courage from Hussaini movement. He stated this in his special message on the occasion of Ashura.
Agha Moosavi reminded that Ashura is the day of eternal victory of the righteousness over the falsehood; in the history of the mankind no one is more oppressed then Hussain (PBUH), no tragedy is greater then Karbala and no protest is more effective then Azadari which will be continued regardless of all kinds of dangers; bomb blasts and suicide attacks can not force us to abandon the Path of Hussainiat; mourners should give preference to the grief of Imam Hussain (PBUH) over every thing else and during the day of mourning preference must be given to Azadari and only Azadari. He said that the pious name of the martyr of the right path Imam Hussain (PBUH) in the history of humanity added a new chapter, which not only motivated the hearts of his followers but also astonished the whole of humanity with the greatness of Almighty Allah and his own spiritual power. The honour and dignity of this eternal martyr has a unique status in the world, which will be illuminated till the end of the world. Even today following the path of Hussainiat can devastate oppression, barbarity, dictatorship and kingship.
Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi said that fourteen centuries passed away since the martyrdom of Imam Hussain (PBUH) but the remembrance of this great sacrifice is still alive. The way rays of sun, water from rivers, drops of rain satisfy the need of everyone without any discrimination of colour, creed or religion, similarly the benefits of the battle between the righteousness and falsehood which took place in the plain of Karbala on 10th Muharram 61 AH are reaped in every era by every country, nation and civilization. The martyrdom of Imam Hussain (PBUH) is a lesson for humanity in every era therefore not only Muslims but also people belonging to every faith praise Imam Hussain (PBUH), the son of Imam Ali (PBUH). The martyrdom of Imam Hussain (PBUH) appears to be the symbol of freedom, truth, courage, forbearance, loyalty, justice, fair play, bravery, greatness of character and victory of oppressed against dictatorship, oppression, injustice, wrong doings, breaking ones promises, cheating and atheism.
Agha Moosavi said that Imam Hussain (PBUH), the son of Imam Ali (PBUH) bestowed dignity and honour upon humanity through taking firm stand and accepting martyrdom; hence attained the leadership of humanity. He (PBUH) in the battlefield of Karbala was surrounded by the enemy of freedom, justice, honour and dignity in a same way as gem is fixed in the ring; death was standing like a beast to engulf Imam Hussain (PBUH) and his pious companions; his children and the pious ladies of his household were endangered for being captive by the low of the lowest, barbaric and foolish people. Even though his children were facing thirst and hunger still Imam Hussain (PBUH) was standing firm in the scorching desert of Karbala and addressed the army of Yazid with great courage and daring tone, “ By God I will not forward my hand towards you like a low person neither I will run away from here like a slave. The adopted son of Bani Umayyad made me stand on a path, which leads either to death or accepting humiliation, but I will accept the first condition out of both and will not surrender to you with humiliation; accepting humiliation? Never, never, this kind of response is miles away from our family; there is no place of this kind of response in our lives; with this neither Almighty Allah becomes happy nor the Holy Prophet of Allah (PBUH & HHP) and my pious mother who brought me up on her lap. Neither the honourable and noble people accept this stance because they all are gracious people who will prefer death than bowing down in front of foolish and low people”.
Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi quoted the great German historian Mosio Marbeen who remembered the stand of Imam Hussain (PBUH) in these words, “Hussain Ibne Ali (PBUH) the grandson of the Holy Prophet from his beloved daughter Hazrat Fatima Zahra (PBUH) is the only person who some 14 centuries ago single handedly stood steadfast against oppression and barbarity, It was the slogan of Hussain Ibne Ali (PBUH), “I will be murdered on the righteous path but will not give my hand into the hand of falsehood”. Imam Hussain (PBUH) was observing that the government of Umayyad had converted into dictatorship; the values of Islam and the rulings of Almighty Allah were being trampled over and it was possible that the strongest pillars of Islam would be rooted out from their foundation. He paid attention to this matter that if a soft approach was adopted then the signs of Islam and its Sharia would disappear; that is why he (PBUH) made an absolute decision to take a firm stand. The greatest warrior of Islam made it clear to the whole of the world that oppression, barbarity and injustice has no reliability; no matter how much oppression is committed by the oppressive world, it will flow away in the flood of righteousness, but the first condition is that the men of the right path and the brave of the truth and reality must take firm stand to keep truth alive. To conclude he writes, the purpose of Hussain (PBUH) was to stop oppression and barbarity this was his real objective for which he displayed great courage and spirit of sacrifice in a such a way that in the last moment of his life he also sacrificed his six month old baby Ali Asghar (PBUH) on the right path and with this great and courageous stance astonished the elders and philosopher of the world. He offered Islam spirituality, light (nooraneat) and a new lease of life by sacrificing his life and made the Muslim nation pay attention to the real meaning of Islam, that meaning which was almost wiped of from the objectives of Islam; hence the revolution of Hussain (PBUH) became the source and fountain of the Islamic revolutions which are still being carried out.
The Quaid e Millat e Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi quoted another renowned European historian Morris Dokabri who said, “if our historians had known to the reality of Ashura and understood what Ashura was then they would not have seen Azadari as unrealistic. The followers of Imam Hussain (PBUH) know that humility, weakness and colonialism must not be accepted because it is the slogan of their Infallible Imams, “do not bow down in front of oppression and barbarity”. Hussain (PBUH) sacrificed his life and the life of his children for the dignity honour and the status of Islam and humanity but did not accept to live under the unjust and oppressive rule of Yazid. We should also adopt the pious character of Hussain (PBUH) and should get freedom from the clutches of the Yazids of this time and should prefer to live with honour over living in disgrace because dying with honour is better then living in humiliation. Hence that nation who follows these teachings from birth to the grave will have great status and honour; that nation deserves all kind of honour and dignity because in that nation all are the warrior of righteousness, dignity and honour”.
ISLAMABAD, November 23: In remembrance of the sacrifice of the grandson of the Holy Prophet, Imam Hussain (PBUH) which he made for the elevation of the religion and Sharia, a procession of Shabeeh e Zuljinah and Gehwara e Shahzada Ali Asghar was brought out in the federal capital Islamabad from Masjid O Imam Bargah Jamia tul Murtaza G-9/4 Islamabad in the leadership of the Quaid e Millat e Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi in which several Matami groups and thousands of mourners participated. During procession while talking to the media representatives the Quaid e Millat e Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi said that all of the Yazidi and the colonial forces are busy against Muslims; Pakistan is being targeted because its basic ideology is based on Islam and it is the only Islamic nuclear power. Muharram ul Harram is one of the sacred months, which was also honoured by even the non-Muslim of the Arab world. Muslim themselves devastated the dignity of this month which is a great calamity. Last day the procession of Menhadi of Shahzada Qasim was targeted in Dhoke Syedaan in which one and half dozen innocent mourners of Imam Hussain (PBUH) lost their lives and scores were injured but we preferred peace; if we wished, we could set alight the whole of Islamabad but did not allow anyone to even move a single stem of barley. He said that the founder of terrorism in this country is dictator general Zial ul Haq, due to his ill move the crop of blood is being harvested till this date.
Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi said that we will not let Azadari and Milad un Nabi suffer even all our sons are murdered. He said that when the interior minister visited him he made it clear to him that does not spread terror and fear; your job is not only identifying danger but to rectify it. He said that all Pakistani should pray to Almighty Allah for the stability and safety of the motherland because the shackles can be broken with pray so the lucks are changed. In response of one question he said that according to the “Moosavi Junego accord of 21st May of 1985” the federal and the provincial governments are bound to provide securities to all the procession of Azadari; we never accepted any restriction on Azadari either before nor our generation will accept any restriction. He said that the sign of Muslim is that neither he commits oppression nor he hands over his people to oppressors. While replying another question he said that even Rehman Malik himself is not satisfied with the securities arrangements made by the government; there is a lack of coherence between the governmental circles; the federal and the provincial governments are not ready to honour each other, one minister say one thing while other says something else; if the rulers want to solve problems then they will have to unite and adopt piety. He said that setting up of control room in the interior ministry is an appreciable act but when ever the rulers of Punjab came into power they always created hurdle in the path of Azadari; till this date the positive steps taken by the TNFJ and suggestion for the solution of the Azadari’s problem were never answered positively by them. Aqae Moosavi said that terrorism will not be stopped by putting restriction on the use of mobile and motorbikes for that purpose 30 banned groups must be controlled. He said that the rulers should eliminate the weakness of the law because the murderers of 100’s of innocent people are released by courts due to the loopholes in laws.
Meanwhile, the matmi procession performing noha khwani and seena zani reached Muhammadi Chowk G-9/2 while touching through its designated routes. There it turned into a gathering. Addressing thousands of azadaran e Hussain (PBUH), Allama Syed Qamar Haider Zaidi said the grief of Hussain (PBUH) is not inheritance of any particular group or school of thought rather rather all Muslims are his mourners. While condemning the incidents of Quetta, Karachi and Dhoke Syedaan Rawalpindi he said that one mourner belonging to Ahle Sunnat was offering drinks to the mourners of Imam (PBUH) when he was martyred which proves that no enemy can cause any differences between Sunni and Shia.
On this occasion, azadaran e Hussain expressed their resolve that they would not hesitate in giving any sacrifice for defense of motherland and spread of shia sunni brotherhood, besides following the Code of Azadari issued by Quaid I Millat I Jafariya Agha Moosavi during Ayyam e Aza that will continue till Rabiul Awwal 8, and thus would perform Ajre Risalat.
Later, azadaran extended condolence of Mazloom e Karbala by performing Zanjeer zani. Passing through its designated routes, the procession culminated at Jamia Imam as-Sadiq (AS) Karachi Company. There matamdaraan belonging to Wanhaar region did noha khwani and Zanjeer zani in very unique style.
Mukhtar Students Organization, MO, Ibrahim Scouts, Mukhtar Generation, Mukhtar Force and Ummul Banin WF participated in arrangements of the procession. Sabeel e Hussaini was set up during the procession.
Besides TNFJ Islamabad’s Muharram Committee members and top officers of administration, heavy contingent of police remained with the procession.
Concluding dua was carried out by Allama Zahid Abbas Kazmi. At the end of the procession, the chief organizer of the procession Syed Shujaat Ali Bokhari thanked all participants, matamdaraan, azadaraan and district administration.
RAWALPINDI, November 22: The collective funeral prayer of the martyrs of the Matami procession of Dhoke Syedaan, Rawalpindi Cant. was performed at Qasre Shabir (PBUH) in which great numbers of mourners belonging to Sunni and Shia faith participated. It was great view when the bodies of the seventeen martyrs including one of the Ahle Sunnat Azadar Mohammad Nadeem were taken towards burial grounds. On this occasion apart from police, the volunteers of TNFJ and its sub organizations including MFP, Ibrahim Scouts and Mukhtar Students Organizations made great arrangements. The volunteers of Ibrahim Scouts brought a Matami procession from Garja Road in which Tabaroukat and Tazeas were included in remembrance of Raheel Abbas of Ibrahim Scout who stopped the suicide bomber. According to the announcement of the Quaid e Millat e Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi, the participants of the funeral and relatives of the martyrs announced the observation of the “Days of grief” for their loved ones after 8th of Rabiul Awwal because there is no calamity greater then the grief of Imam Hussain (PBUH).
While addressing to the participants of the funeral, the spokesman of the TNFJ Syed Qamar Haider Zaidi said that oppression can only be defeated while following the path of Hussainiat that is why after this incident of terrorism, the volunteers of the TNFJ did not allow anyone to move even a single stem of barley because mayhem and disorder is the agenda of terrorists while even a single grain of a sand of the motherland is dearer to us then our lives; the federal and provincial governments should not make terrorists respected rather they should be dealt with iron hand.
On this occasion Allama Zaidi read the message of the Quaid e Millat e Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi in which, while condemning the bomb blast near Qasre Shabir Dhoke Syedaan Rawalpindi, Quetta and Karachi, Aqae Moosavi said that bomb blasts and suicide attacks cannot force us to abandon the path of Hussainiat; We are happy to lay our lives but will not let Azadari die. Programmes of Azadari began on 1st of Muharram ul Harram will conclude on 8th of Rabiul Awwal with respect and great reverence. We salute volunteers of Ibrahim Scouts, Mukhtar Force and those mourners of Imam Hussain (PBUH) who laid their lives for the mission of Hussainiat; their parents are lucky, if we have to offer the lives of thousands of our children for the protection of Azadari, still we would not hesitate to do so and will not let anyone throw a bad eye towards Azadari, those who got martyrdom includes Ahle Sunnat which proves that Imam Hussain (PBUH) belongs to all;
Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi said that releasing terrorists from prisons before Muharram poses a question. It has been proven by the incidents of Quetta, Karachi and Rawalpindi that the government has only relied on spreading fear and panic. These incidents exposed the sham security arrangements made by the government. He said that the main reason for the terrorist incidents is, three dozens banned groups that are roaming about freely; they have friendship with administration and are also part of the peace committees.
The TNFJ leader said that the opposing statements of the government show that there is a lack of coherence between the governmental institutions and the enemy is taking advantage of this situation. If the rulers are serious to eliminate terrorism from the motherland then they will have to deal terrorists groups with iron hand; these groups must be thrown out of the peace committees and that the government will have to reach to the real representatives of the public. Until the terrorists are stopped from operating, the incidents of terrorism will continue. He said that attack on the procession of Azadari is equivalent to an attack on the dignity of the Holy Prophet and his Holy Progeny (PBUT) because in these processions the religious artefacts contain the Holy Quran and the pious names of the Holy Prophet (PBUH & HHP) his Holy Progeny (PBUT) and his pious companions (RA). He made an appeal to the mourners of Imam Hussain (PBUH) to give priority to the Azadari over everything else and should ensure the safety of Majalis and Matami processions. He said that we salute the martyrs of Azadari and their condolences will be held after 8th of Rabiul Awwal.
On this occasion the caretaker of Imam Bargah Qasr e Shabir (PBUH) and the general secretary of the TNFJ Rawalpindi Syed Mazloom Hussain Kazmi, the president of the TNFJ Punjab Syed Hussain Muqadasi, the president of the TNFJ Rawalpindi region Allama Abual Hassan Taqi, Chaudhary Abu Baidar Ali of MFP, Allama Zahid Abbas Kazmi, Shoukat Abbas Jafferi, Qasim al Hussaini, Zakir Sajid Hussain Rukan and Zakir Ghulam Raza of Chuk Deenaal also addressed to the participants. After wards the martyrs of the “Matami procession” were buried in Gunj e Shaheedaan, Dhoke Syedaan with the slogan of Labaik Ya Hussain (PBUH).
RAWALPINDI, November 17: An important meeting of the central Muharram Committee Azadari Cell of TNFJ Pakistan was held at the headquarters of the Maktab e Tasheyo which was presided over by the central convener Syed Shujaat Ali Bukhari. In the meeting the arrangements of Muharram ul Haram were reviewed in detail.
Bu Ali Mahdi, Additional Secretary of the Committee while presenting his report in the meeting said that keeping the interests of the nation and the country supreme, to maintain sanctity and honour of Ayyam-e-Aza and to facilitate azadars of Imam e Mazloom, Control Rooms have been set up in Federal Capital Islamabad and all the four provinces including Azad Kashmir and Northern Areas.
The Control Room of the Central Muharram Committee (Azadari Cell) will be working round-the-clock where Azadars could contact on (051-4410180, 051-4840625, 051-5876402/ 0345-5291412) for any possible issue confronted by them.
In the meeting Allama Basharat Hussain Imami federal capital Islamabad, Allama Hussain Muqadasi Punjab, Allama Waqar Hassan Taqwi Sindh, Major (R) Husnain Haider Kazmi Khaiber Pakhtoon Kha, Mohammad Ali Khan Advocate Balouchistan, Riaz Hussain Kazmi Azad Kashmir and Allama Mohammad Kazim Turabi Giligit Baltistan have been appointed as convener of the Moharram Committee Azadari Cell while Syed Tahiri Shah, Tasnim Abbas, Karar Haider Naqvi, Chaudhry Abbas, DR S Z Naqvi, Syed Nasir Abbas Jafri, Agha Behashti, Fawad Ali, Arif Jafferi, Syed Munawar Kazmi, Rehmat Ali Shah, Khizr Naqvi, Mukhtar Ali, Shahid Hussain, Mohammad Hadi, Syed Musawar Naqvi, Zaigham Abbas, Arif Badri, Altaf Hussain, Mohammad Sharif and Mohammad Jawaid will be convener for the Moharram Committee worldwide. Contact of the conveners can be obtained from the TNFJ’s website.
Syed Shujaat Ali Bukhari while addressing to the meeting appealed to the mourners of Imam Hussain (PBUH) to follow the Code of Azadari announced by the Quaid e Millat e Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi and give priority to Azadari over everything else and highlight the eternal and invaluable sacrifices of the grandson of the Holy Prophet (PBUH). He called upon them to display unity and brotherhood and prove on the world that we are united and are a concrete wall against our combined enemy.
He demanded from the government not to delay setting up of Azadari Cells at Federal Interior Ministry, Ministry for Religious Affairs, all the four provinces including Azad Kashmir and Northern Areas and on District level which should remain in contact with the TNFJ’s Muharram Committee Azadari Cells. Contacts of the appointed officials may be publicized through the media so that Azadari programmes could be carried out with honour, dignity and in peace.
He also demanded from the electronic media not to telecast dancing, musical programmes, dramas, and all types of matches and comedy during Ashra-e-Muharram and called upon all government and non-government organizations to avoid Munkiraat and ensure the dignity of Muharram ul Haram.
Shujaat Bukhari demanded from the government to issue directives from top to low Administration to implement the Code of Azadari announced by the Quaid e Millat e Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi.
Shujaat Ali Bukhari said Karbala is the battlefield of righteousness and evil where the Imam Aali Muqaam (PBUH) and his near and dear ones have taught a lesson to the conscious people how to live and die in honour. That is why, he said, people from every nation pay respect to Hussain Ibn e Ali (PBUH.) according to their customs and culture.
Syed Ala'a Haider Secretary Azadari Cell, Allama Zahid Abbas Kazmi, Qasim ul Hussaini, Ajmal Hassan Naqvi and other members of the central Muharram Committee Azadari Cell also attended the meeting.
In the meeting Israil's attack on the Gaza was condemned greatly and great grief was expressed over the silence of the intenational organization in this regard. In a resolution the continuous terrorism was considered to be the government weakness and was a result of giving free hand to the banned groups and demanded from the government to enforce Anti-terrorist Act for the long term establishment of peace in the motherland.
RAWALPINDI, November 15: The Quaid-i-Millat Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi has announced a 14-point Code of Azadari. Addressing a Press conference here at the headquarters of the Maktab-e-Tashayyo, he said we are not going to get upset on terrorism or are afraid of death, we will continue Azadari of Syed-us-Shuhada Imam Hussain (A.S.) come what may that is the most effective protest of the oppressed against oppressors. No restriction on Azadari will be accepted, independent citizens can go anywhere they like. Restriction on Zakireen and Ulema is not a solution to the problem and if the government is sincere that they should impose restrictions on the terrorists and banned parties who were roaming about freely. Restriction on late Zakireen is a fun and smacks of non-serious attitude of the rulers.
Agha Moosavi said that if loudspeaker can be used in Assemblies and political meetings that why not in Azadari. Making the terrorists sit with them and begging peace and including such elements in peace committees is a joke with the people. Why the rulers who are creating harassment by telling people about the danger are not taking steps to overcome these dangers? Why those who identify foreign hand not cut those hands who are playing the bloody holy in economic jugular vein Karachi and Quetta. The rulers are aware of the shelters of terrorists but were not taking action owing to some reservations.
The TNFJ chief said the sensitive areas like Karachi, Quetta, Parachinar, Gilgit-Baltistan should be handed over to the army. He said the Tehreek Nafaz Fiqh-e-Jafariya has set up Muharram Committee Azadari Cells in cities and towns for solution of problems of Azadars and the Federal Interior Ministry should also set up Muharram Control Rooms in the four provinces and direct them to remain in contact with the Tehreek Nafaz Fiqh-e-Jafariya. Timely formation of Muharram Control Cell by the Azad Kashmir government is a good step, he added.
Answering a question, Agha Moosavi said politics is not a Shajr-e-Mamnoa but politics is nothing but hypocrisy, fraud, drama, and lie. One who has to do politics should give up the outfit of Maslak and Maktab first as taking part in election in the name of sect is tantamount to breaking Pakistan. This country is dearer than our life therefore we will not do this. Went to jail along with children to save the ideological Asaas of the country and will not hesitate to offer any sacrifice for it in future also. The Tehreek Nafaz Fiqh-e-Jafariya saved Pakistan from becoming a sectarian State through taking over Pakistan Secretariat and launching an 8-month long agitation. Pakistan was created in the name of Islam and we will not allow it to become a State of Sunni, Shia, Deobandi or Ahle Hadees. After the Islamic Revolution, we had proposed Iran to make Islam a public law instead of Masalik.
Answering another question, Agha Moosavi said like Banu Ummayad and Banu Abbas, Gen. Ziaul Haq also caused irreparable loss to the country in the garb of Islam. Answering another query, he said the parliament enjoys supremacy and authority over other institutions according to Quran and Sunnah. Those who are creating differences amongst the institutions were not friends but enemies of the country and the nation. The motherland could be strengthened by strengthening the pillars of parliament, judiciary, administration and journalism. Unfortunately, he added, the parliament carries out amendments in the Constitution for their benefits but the Islamic Constitution is unamendable and Hussain Ibne Ali (A.S.) rendered unforgettable and exemplary sacrifice in Karbala to save the same.
The 14-point Code of Azadari is: (1) Advance protective measures may be taken at all sensitive places during Majalis-e-Aza and Azadari processions and no hurdles may be created in them rather the processions may be concluded at their destinations with honour and respect. Federal and provincial governments may enforce such laws that may not encroach upon the rights of anyone; (2) District administrations throughout the country may be directed to avoid creating fear and harassment amongst the Azadars, and organisers of Majalis and mourning processions rather the administration may cooperate with Azadars so as to complete the Azadari rites with honour and respect; (3) No one will be allowed to take law into his own hands; (4) Religious tolerance may be promoted, preaching of all types of biases may be disallowed;(5) Stable actions may be taken to root out terrorism and miscreant activities (6) The organisers of Majalis and processions may take protective measures under self-help basis. Help and cooperation from Mukhtar Force volunteers and Ibrahim Scouts can also be sought; (7) The people should remain fully alert, keep an eye on the situation around and immediately inform the administration if they notice any suspicious person or thing so as to thwart the nefarious designs of the miscreants; (8) All Makatib may highlight the good deeds of the Imam Aali Muqaam (A.S.) and his diehard companions by preaching their beliefs in a positive manner; (9) Ulema, waizeen and zakireen may give priority to unity, mutual understanding and integrity of the nation and the country; (10)The controversial personalities should not be included in the electronic media programmes. Sacrifices of Shahadat-e-Uzma and Shuhada-e-Karbala may be highlighted in full. Preaching of Munkiraat may be avoided and all types of music, dramas, and comedy programmes may remain suspended during the Ashra-e-Muharram. Irresponsible programmes may not be presented feeling the national and religious responsibilities. The print media may give full coverage to Majalis-e-Aza and Matmi processions during Ashra-e-Muharram and print special editions. The exemplary and everlasting sacrifices of Martyrs of Karbala may be highlighted in an effective manner so as to inculcate the spirit of sacrifice in people; (11) All leaders and politicians may discontinue all types of political activities during the Ashra-e-Muharram and it is binding for Azadaran to keep Azadari foremost over all other things; (12) Women may follow the seerat and character of Mukhadderat-e-Ismat and Taharat, Ahle Bait Athaar (A.S.) and pious Sahaba Kubaar; (13) Discipline and timings may be ensured during Majalis-e-Aza and Matmi processions and any step that may be against the spirit of Azadari may be avoided; and (14) All Makatib and Masalak should be respected and respect of all of them may be ensured. The organisers of Majalis may follow the Code of Azadari themselves and also make it binding on others.
On the occasion, Agha Moosavi prayed for the protection of country’s integrity, an end to terrorism, supremacy of the Islamic World and for an end to conspiracies against Pakistan.
RAWALPINDI, November 11: The Quaid-i-Millat Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi has said the tension about limits and jurisdiction among the national institutions could become the cause of riot and arson, the judiciary enjoys supremacy over other institutions and other institutions should respect it and also draw respect under the principle of ‘be kind and get kindness’. The institutions are entangling with each other but there is no one to take care of the people. Ghadeer is the sign of completion of religion while Mobahila is the symbol of Islam’s victory and it is obligatory for all Kalma saying people to keep these symbols alive. The only solution to problems Islam and Pakistan are confronted with is to convert to Allah and seek His forgiveness. This was stated by him while addressing the Mehfil Ghadeer-o-Mobahila and Nazool-e-Hal Atta.
Agha Moosavi expressed grave concern over the strong wave of terrorism going on in Karachi and Quetta, he said terrorism could only be checked when the noose is tightened around more than two and a half dozen banned terrorist organisations. He said getting Pakistan’s foreign policy rid of American influence is the need of the hour and key to the solution of national problems. Therefore, he added, Nato supplies should be stopped and Drone attacks should be get discontinued and good relations should be developed with neighbouring countries while efforts should be made that we have more friends than foes but in the meantime we should not bargain on our rights.
The TNFJ chief said by the Grace of God, the official religion of Pakistan is Islam and under the Article 227 the explanation of it would be according to Quran and Sunnah that is honoured by the respective fiqhs. He said the judiciary enjoys supremacy over all other institutions like the judiciary enjoys this status in every country today. If one who makes law has the right to explain it and if he gives this right to explain to anyone else then he can also explain like the judiciary has been given this right. But if the judiciary hesitates in making any explanation then it would have to return to the parliament.
Agha Moosavi said that the Rasool-e-Khuda (SAAW) was delivering a great khutba on 18 Zilhijj, Hijra 10 at the place called Khum-e-Ghadeer. During this khutba, he held the arm of Ali (A.S.) and following the commandment of Allah raised it and said “Ali is the Maula of those, I am the Maula of whom”. After it, he (SAAW) prayed, Oh, Allah! Keep the one friend who keeps him friend and keep enmity with the one who keeps enmity with him. Hazrat Omer Ibne Khattab (R.A.) came forward from the huge crowd present there and greeted Hazrat Ali Ibne Abi Talib (A.S.) on award Wilayat status and Allah gave the good news to the Rasool (SAAW) that the religion has been completed today. Therefore Islam is the religion and Shariat is the Shariat-e-Muhammadi.
The TNFJ chief said in Hijra 9, when the leaders of the Christianity who were residing in Najran and had refused to all arguments about Islam, there came the commandment for Mobahila with them that is mentioned in Surah Aal-e-Imran. He said when the Punjtan Pak appeared before the Nasara-e-Najran, they foresaw their charismatic personalities and refused to engage in Mobahil and expressed their readiness to pay ‘Jazia’ instead saying that if these personalities point towards the mountain, it would move from its place. In other words, the Rasool (SAAW) made it clear on the world that the Punjtan Pak are truthful.
The Quaid-i-Millat Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi while stating the Shan-e-Nazool of Surah Hal Atta said that when Hasnain (A.S.) fell ill and the Rasool’s (SAAW) family kept fasts for their health; Some poor, orphans and prisoners came at Iftaar and the Rasool (SAAW) distributed all Iftar articles amongst them and it went on like this for three continuous days. There is no example of such sacrifice in the universe and Allah sent Sura Hal Atta in recognition of this deed. He said we should also give priority to the oppressed and have-nots who are facing oppression and brutalities. The woes of the oppressed and have-nots could only be overcome by inculcating the spirit of sacrifice, he added.
RAWALPINDI, November 9: Capitalism is making the whole world its slave by taking advantage of the finances and power of the Zionist multi national institutions; while following the thinking of Allama Iqbal (which is comprised of the love of the Holy Prophet (PBUH & HHP), the courage of Haider, thinking of Salman and truthfulness of Abuzar) Muslims all over the world and all the oppressed nations can attain freedom from capitalism; the Muslim states should ensure special measures to lead students to the intellectual centres of Madina and Najaf instead of the western ones; the education system should be in line with Islamic guidance and the latest needs; instead of spending funds set aside for education on the scholarships for higher education in other countries it should also be spent on the basic educational needs in the remote areas of the country; high calibre educational institutes should be established in the Muslim countries to facilitate latest skills and knowledge; the education budget of the country should be increased by 20%; the sub organizations belonging to the banned groups should be prevented from working in the educational institutions; in order to introduce the youth with the teachings of Islam, “the Moosavi’s Islamic Vision Programme” should be implemented; terrorism is opposed by Islam therefore the Islamic Media should play its role to convey the real values of Islam to the rest of the world; This was stated in the declaration of MSO during a regional convention held at Hussaini Mohaz, Qademi Imam Bargah Rawalpindi; In the convention, the MSO representatives from the region, students of the colleges and the Universities participated in great numbers.
The convention was presided over by the regional president of MSO, Syed Arsalan Kazmi; on this occasion the chairman of MSO Syed Bu Ali Mahdi, and the provisional president Manzoor Mudasar were the chief guests. In the declaration presented by the regional vice president Syed Sibtul Hassan Taqi, it was mentioned that the message of Allama Iqbal must be kept alive as it is the need of the hour; By fanning the differences between Arab, non Arab, lingual and regional differences, sectarianism and tribalism, the power of the Muslims has been converted into their weakness; the infidel world is taking advantage of the disorder in the Islamic world therefore, while destroying the idols of colour and creed, the whole of the Muslim nation will have to be united on a unified platform. The Muslim nation while forgetting the teachings of the Holy Prophet (PBUH & HHP) is following the unstable system about whom Allama Iqbal almost one century ago said, “it will be destroyed under its own weight”; today protests are being staged in America against capitalism which are proving the theory of Iqbal.
In the declaration, great concern was expressed over the fact that the Muslim states enriched with natural resources are looking towards the western world; the blood of Muslims is being shed as if it is cheaper than water. The terrorism sponsored by the western world is forcefully being imposed on Islam and the Muslim states have adopted the criminal silence upon this matter. The mantra of the love of the Holy Prophet (PBUH & HHP) is on the lips of the Muslim rulers but the reality is quite opposite; the relation of the Muslim countries with the western world is same despite its blasphemous attitude towards the Holy Prophet of Islam (PBUH & HHP); therefore, in order to equip Muslim youth with the love of the Holy Prophet (PBUH & HHP) Mukhtar Students Organization will carry on with its efforts under the prudent leadership of the Quaid e Millat e Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi.
The regional representatives of Rawalpindi, Chakwal, Jehlum and Attock, Syed Joan Ali Mashahadi, Rana Zulqurnain, Syed Arif Naqvi, Chaudhri Meraj Haider and other participants of the convention approved the declaration presented in the convention. Meanwhile according to the regional spokesman of MSO, Rajab Ali Kazmi, the second and the third sessions of MSO convention will comprise of Jashan e Ghadeer O Mobahila and Organizational sitting.
RAWALPINDI, November 8: The Quaid-i-Millat Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi has strongly condemned the suicide attack on the Sachal Rangers headquarters and termed it the activity of enemies of Islam and Pakistan. In a statement issued from the headquarters of the Maktab-e-Tashih he said Pakistan is a mole in the eyes of the international satans who never let any change go in causing harm to it. He lamented that Pakistan has landed in the hands of those agents who had opposed its creation. They earned profusely and caused harm to it, he said adding that the same elements remain in authority in all national institutions including the media and are exploiting the patriotic and peaceful elements.
Agha Moosavi said that the rulers and the politicians were including more than three dozen banned terrorist groups in their alliances and they are fully prepared to take part in elections. He asked the government whether the ‘banned’ mean only ban of collection of hides? He said the banned groups are free to take out hides of the poor people but their noose is not being tightened. He we had been demanding for quite long that these banned groups should denied assistance they receive from foreign States and protest should be lodged with those States who are giving patronage to them to make Pakistan a battlefield in which innocent people are being targeted.
The Quaid-i-Millat Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi said the government and the opposition both are representatives of people therefore they should sit together and utilise all their energies to turn Pakistan into a hub of peace. For this purpose, they should commit with the parliament, judiciary and administration that desecration of any of the institution would be considered as desecration of the whole Pakistan, all institutions will not interfere in each other’s matters accepting the supremacy of the Constitution, the deeds of any individual will not be considered as deeds of any institution, all institutions and sections will express hatred against the banned groups and no political party will use them for their self-interest. He said if the banned groups feel they are innocent then they should get themselves cleared from the courts. He said the standard of our friendship and enmity is Islam, Pakistan, Muslim and humanity. We can accept our murder but would not allow Pakistan to be murdered, he concluded.
RAWALPINDI, November 7: The Quaid-i-Millat Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi has strongly condemned the Shahadat of many innocent people including S.P. Agha Hilal Haider Qazilbash in a suicide attack near police station in Qissa Khwani Bazar in Peshawar and termed it the activity of enemies of Islam and Pakistan. In a statement issued from the headquarters of the Maktab-e-Tashih he said it has been established that extremist elements playing in the hands of colonial powers consider Islam in general and Pakistan in particular as a danger for themselves and are continuing putting pressure through different tactics to destabilise it.
Agha Moosavi said that despite restoration of Nato supplies, Drone attacks were still continuing and many issues including riots, tribal conflicts, provincialism, target killings are still going on while the impression is being given that non-Muslim minorities are unsafe in Pakistan. He said attack and murder on anyone is attack and murder of the whole Pakistan and what is going on in the country today is the result of incapable rulers and politicians. These powers were bent upon entangling big institutions with each other.
The TNFJ chief appealed the all patriotic circles and leaders to accept the supremacy of the Constitution because the breaking of international atheism lay in the unity and brotherhood of the Islamic World. They should not defame the nation and help thwart the conspiracies of the enemy and restore the honour and dignity of the nation and the country as in it lay the success of us all. He lamented that government has given an open hand to terrorist groups declared banned officially. He said the rulers and politicians exchange pleasantries with these groups, media gives coverage and courts set them free in the absence of proofs as a result of which terrorism is not rooted out yet.
The Quaid-i-Millat Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi demanded from the government to arrest the murderers of all innocent people who fell victim to incidents of terrorism in Karachi, Quetta, Hyderabad, and Peshawar, give them exemplary punishment and pay compensation to the bereaved families.
RAWALPINDI, November 6: The Quaid-i-Millat Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi has strongly condemned the incident of target killing of religious leaders Aftab Haider Jafri and Shahid Ali Mirza in Karachi and termed it continuation of terrorism in the country. In a statement issued from the headquarters of the Maktab-e-Tashih he said motherland Pakistan is being made target of terrorism for quite long by fanning biases, raising lingual and Maktabi issues and sometimes by using different tactics by the enemy so as to fulfil their interests. He said full energy is being utilised to cut down our enonomic jugular vein Karachi and bombs blasts, suicide attacks, Qabza mafia, kidnapping, dacoities are being carried out for this purpose while our rulers and politicians were busy in leg-pulling of each other. He said unfortunately all major institutions were being pitched against each other benefiting the enemy.
Agha Moosavi said the Chief Justice who takes suo moto every now and then has been repeated appealed to take suo moto notice of the terrorism from era of its founder Gen. Zia to-date but in vain which provides food for thought. He expressed concern that despite Supreme Court’s order increase in terrorism, recovery of five kg bomb near Quaid’s mazar, target killing of religious leaders Aftab Haider Jafri and Shahid Ali Mirza in Karachi and lawlessness going on for many days in Hyderabad poses a question mark on the government’s performance. He blamed the wrong policies of the rulers and the politicians for whatever is going on in the country.
The Quaid-i-Millat Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi appealed the Pakistani people without any discrimination to ensure their protection themselves, announce their hatred against those who are operating on the foreign desire and do not become enraged as it would benefit our enemies. He said the parliament, judiciary, administration and media should work in unison. Creating any rift in these institutions is tantamount to strengthening the interests of the international enemies, he added.
RAWALPINDI, November 5: The Universal Hafta-e-Wilayat on the call of Quaid-i-Millat Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi has started from Monday. Mahafils, gatherings, conferences and seminars were organised on this occasion in which ulema, waizeen, zakireen and intelligentsia highlighted the importance and supremacy of Wilayat-e-Ali.
Allama Syed Qamar Haider Zaidi addressing the Mehfil-e-Noor organised at Aza Khana Masooma-e-Qum under the auspices of Hayyat Tulaba-e-Islam said that the pious character of Ali Ibne Abi Talib (A.S.) will remain the beacon of light for human beings and Wilayat-e-Ali will remain the source of acceptance of worship. He said it is impossible to reach the height of dignity of Amirul Momineen (A.S.) because there is a saying of the Holy Prophet (SAAW) that goes that no one has recognised Ali (A.S.) except Allah and Rasool (SAAW). Therefore, he added, after the acceptance of Tauheed and Risalat the Wilayat-e-Ali is also obligatory as it is the Asaas of Iman in which lay the survival of us all.
Qamar Zaidi said Wilayat-e-Ali guarantees the mirage of humanity without which the colourfulness of the universe is useless and worship in unfruitful. He said if the Muslims the world over desire to achieve success then they have to attach themselves with the Daman of Ali Ibne Abi Talib (A.S.) because there is the commandment of the Rasool (SAAW) that Ali (A.S.) is the Maula of those, I am the Maula of whom.
Mufti Basim Abbas Zahiri said that the Wilayat of Amirul Momineen Ali Ibne Abi Talib (A.S.) is the life-line of our belief and the principle of the Amirul Momineen (A.S.) that become the enemy of the oppressor and friend of the oppressed is the beacon of light for the whole humanity. Maulana Mohsin Raza Bilali, Ali Zeb Kazmi, Izhar Jafri, Syed Ajmal Naqvi, Syed Muhammad Hussaini and other zakireen also addressed the gathering. Saadat Hassan Ali Mughal recited from the Holy Quran while Syed Jone Ali Kazmi administered the proceedings.
Mehfil Eid-e-Ghadeer was organised at Masjid and Imambargah Ahle Bait under the auspices of TNFJ Local Council Wah Cantt. Allama Syed Hussain Muqaddasi presided over the function while the speakers included Allama Zulfiqar Haider Naqvi, Zakir Yasser Ghaffar, Zakir Sajjad Haider Shumari and other waizeen and zakireen. Hafta-e-Wilayat Mehfil was organised at Imambargah Zainul Abideen Satellite under the auspices of Anjuman Faiz-e-Punjtan. Zakiraat addressed this Mehfil.
Hafta-e-Wilayat functions were also organised at Masjid-e-Kazmia, Haideria Masjid, Qasr-e-Shabbir, Qasr-e-Kazmia, Markazi Imambargah Shah Nazar Diwan Badshah, Imambargah Jagir Ali Akbar, Ali Masjid Daultala, Qasr-e-Rubab, Qasr-e-Zainab and Takya Sain Inayat Hussain.
ISLAMABAD, November 3: The high level session of UWF was held at Jamia tul Murtaza G-9/4 Islamabad, which was presided over by the chairperson of the organization Syeda Umme Laila Mash’hadi in which the planning and preparation of the coming programs were reviewed in detail and important decisions were made. The representatives from all the provinces including the federal capital Islamabad attended the session and presented their progress report.
The chairperson Syeda Umme Laila Mash’hadi, while expressing determination, said that in the coming month of Muharram ul Harram the guidelines given by the Quaid e Millat e Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi will be observed wholeheartedly to attain the pious objectives. She iterated that soon, the moon of Muharram ul Harram will be sighted and we will be arranging mourning programs for sixty-eight days.
She made it clear that UWF is a countrywide reliable and well-organized organization, which can be joined by local organizations and association whilst preserving their own status. She said that the purpose and objectives of the creation of UWF are the protection, propagation and promotion of the mission of Wala O Aza. From this sacred platform we have to present the pious ladies of the Islamic history as our ideal and will make this saying of Hazrat Fatima (PBUH & HHP) our fundamental principle in which she bespeaks, “Best woman is the one who is safe from the sightings of strange man”. She said that if we want to proceed forward, mothers, sisters and daughters will have to bring harmony in their home affairs, perform their role in the matters of financial management, accept to be obedient of the heads of their homes and the same way accept the UWF as their center of spiritual grooming and keep united. To strengthen the finance of the Organization, reserve money equivalent to one loaf of bread per day and by the end of the month donate this in the budget of UWF. She stressed that the stronger we are the better we will be able to get momentum to attain our objectives since the blessings of the Lady of Heaven are with us, thus generation to generation we will keep protecting this pious mission of Wala O Aza.
Syeda Umme Laila Mash’hadi said that the Supreme Creator blessed every individual with dignity and honor and the following verse from the Holy Quran is an evidence over it, “Almighty created Adam on the best of His creations, and blessed him with the means of transportation on the land and seas, cherished him and gave superiority over many other creations”. The word human is applied to both genders; male and female. Thus it proves that as Allah allocated responsibilities for men, so too for women. There is a tradition of the Holy Prophet (PBUH & HHP), “everyone among you is (like) a Shepherd and everyone will be questioned about his flock”. Thus even we ladies will be questioned whether the duties bestowed upon us, which are far more technical and critical in nature than the ones given to men, are done or not. For example questions about our children’s educational and practical grooming, since the lap of the mother has been declared as the first institute where the child makes his or her initial schooling. The Holy Prophet (PBUH & HHP) says, “Keep attaining knowledge from cradle to grave”. It is also transparently clear in the pages of history where the high and noble males of any era are highlighted, so as the great ladies also become the source of elegance and repute of success. She said that in the history of womenfolk there are great ladies whose character is like a beacon of light for the other ladies to follow. The character of Hazrat Eve (PBUH) is alongside with the character of Hazrat Adam (PBUH), we find the character of Hazrat Sara and Hazrat Hajra (PBUT) with the character of Hazrat Ibrahim Khalilullah (PBUH), Hazrat Musa (PBUH) was born at the house of a great mother who, by the Will of Almighty Allah under her strong faith, handed over her son to the waves of water and Hazrat Aasiya (PBUH) took care of Hazrat Musa (PBUH) even at the house of Pharaoh on which the verses of the Holy Quran are evident. Hazrat Maryam (PBUH) the mother of Hazrat Isa (PBUH); the spirit of Allah, was called the chief of the ladies by her own community and she was unique in her piety and piousness and it was her grooming that her son was called a Messiah. Moreover, the Chief of the Prophet and the Mercy for the Universe, Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH & HHP) shared the most sensitive secret of the receiving of the revelation with his wife Hazrat Khadija (PBUH) who became the first one to certify the authenticity of the Prophethood. She said that by viewing the character of all the pious and high ladies it can be understood that how important the position of womenfolk is. And then the Pious being of Hazrat Fatimah (PBUH) who is the chief of all the ladies of the entire universe and even the chief among the five most pious ladies of the world, who for a limited time period remained the consort of Imam Ali (PBUH). Then among the pious character of Imam Hassan and Imam Hussain (PBUT) the pious characters of their sisters Hazrat Zainab and Umme Kulthum (PBUT) are also shining, who presented everlasting and unforgettable sacrifices on the plain of Karbala and delivered charismatic sermons in the Streets of Kufa and Syria and in the courts of Yazid and Ibne Zayad for the promotion of the great and pious mission of Imam Hussain (PBUH). These sermons are great lessons for the women even today.
The chairperson UWF, Syeda Umme Laila Mash’hadi said that at the time of the formation of our beloved homeland Pakistan, the Quaid e Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah was supported by his sister Fatima Jinnah and, because of their mutual efforts, Pakistan was established. Today it’s been more than sixty-five years that Pakistan has come into being, which has also been pushed into many problems from time to time. Terrorism starting from the period of Zia ul Haq is touching its heights. Mosques, Imam Bargahs, religious institutions, schools, processions of Milaad and Mournings of Imam e Mazloom - nothing is safe from the evil of the terrorism. In these circumstances, by following the footsteps of the pious ladies of the household of the Prophethood and under the guideline of Mader e Millat e Jafariya, it was felt very much necessary to lay the foundations of UWF, because women are equally responsible for the protection and safeguarding as men. Therefore it is our utmost responsibility that the way we protect our family, clan, home and our children, the same way we should assure the protection of signs attributed to Allah. As a child could be brought up in a civilized manner and could be made as a good and law abiding citizen; if enough care is not assured while bringing up a child, different kinds of social evils can engulf the child and deviate him or her from the right path and can ruin the child’s social and religious beliefs and norms. Syeda Umme Laila Mash’hadi said that the way the assassination of one person is the slaying of entire humanity, so as the protection of one person is the protection of entire humanity. She said that we will have to pledge that we will be dutiful in the fulfillment of our responsibilities and by protecting our generations we will make them the mourners of Imam e Mazloom, because the essence of Azadari is the protection of Din and Sharia and attainment of spiritual strength.
She said that in such a crucial times when enemies are not only destroying us internally, the external ones have also entered into our homes through different kind of print and electronic media. This should be kept in mind that Islam is the only pious and pure selected religion. Remember if we want to protect our youth from evil then we will first have to adopt Islamic culture in our homes and will have to imbibe ourselves with the necessities of our religion and will have to follow the characters of the pious ladies of the household of the Holy Prophet (PBUT). She said that it’s the responsibility of the members of UWF that they assure the protection of the signs attributed to Allah and exert all energies for the arrangement of the mourning assemblies and the programs of Milaad. Units of UWF should be established all around the country and by associating with Girls Guide and Sakina Generation keep in touch with the Markaz so that not only can the current objectives be achieved but also the future planning and progress can be assured. She said that because of the farsighted and visionary leadership of the Quaid e Millat e Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi, the mission of Wala O Aza is promoting and, according to him, “ the love of Ameer ul Momineen is our identity and the spirit of our faith and Azadari e Imam e Mazloom is our jugular vein thus for our survival the protection of our jugular vein is utmost. She said that in actual we do not protect Azadari rather Azadari protects us and gives immortality to the Laws of Allah. Thus no compromise will be made regarding Azadari.
RAWALPINDI, November 2: The Quaid-i-MillatJafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi has said that there is need to follow the oswah of Zainab Binte Ali (S.A.) practically so as to root out colonial powers because the granddaughter of the Rasool-e-Akram (SAAW) and daughter of Ali (A.S.) and Batool (S.A.) had shattered the Yazidi courts through her heart-rending khutbaat and today the courageous women the world over were benefiting from these khutbaat in their struggle against the Yazidi forces of today and were offering their brave sons for the movements of independence and freedom following in the footsteps of Seerat-e-Zainab. This was stated by him while addressing the Majlis of Youm Sharika tul Hussain at the headquarters of the Maktab-e-Tashayyo.
Agha Moosavi expressed grave concern that the satanic forces were committing aggression against the oppressed and blasphemy. The Zionists trampled the dignity of the Al-Quds Al-Sharif, Hindus razed Babri Masjid to ground while holy shrines are being targeted in Muslim States. The holy places in Afghanistan, Iraq, Egypt, Tunis, and Libya were targeted while in Pakistan the dignity of the shrines of Bari Shah Latif, Abdullah Shah Ghazi, Sakhi Mahmood Shah and Darbar Kaka Sahib were trampled.
The TNFJ chief said that in Syria, incidents of terrorism took place near the holy shrine of Hazrat Zainab Binte Ali (S.A.). He called upon the Arab League, OIC, NGOs and the protectors of the heritage to get the dignity of Jannat ul Baqee and Jannat ul Moalla restored. He said had the holy signs were not razed to ground in the garb of expansion of Bait Allah and Masjid-e-Nabavi then the satanic forces would not have the courage to make blasphemous movie and publish blasphemous images.
The Quaid-i-MillatJafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi said that Hazrat Zainab (S.A.) is the proud of women at large whose Khanwada is exemplary in gentlemanship, supremacy, and Zuhd-o-Taqwa and on this basis Hazrat Zainab (S.A.) was brought up under the shadow of Ali (A.S.) and Zehra (S.A.) and was placed on the height of supremacy and dignity. He said Hazrat Ali (A.S.) used to stand up in respect of Hazrat Zainab(S.A.) and kiss her hands like the Rasool-e-Khuda (SAAW) used to do in case of Hazrat Fatima Zahra (S.A.).
